We live in a complex world–often overwhelmed by data, connections, random and not-so-random events. One of the challenges of our time is to manage this complexity. We need all the help we can get. We need wizards — people or technologies which can help us make sense of seemingly intractable problems, and we need to make this wizardry available on a wider scale.
IBM is in the business of developing technical wizardry and making it more accessible. One of the ways we do this is by encapsulating difficult problems into models, which can then be made available to those who need solutions in a more consumable way. We put our best minds on hard problems, and then derive models that can be leveraged by our customers to make better decisions.
In this webcast to learn, for example, how:
— IBM Rational Rhapsody uses a state-machine based model to create executable system models to help engineers manage complexity and understand system behavior early in the product development lifecycle
— IBM Rational Focal Point uses a decision/prioritization model to assist users to do portfolio analysis
— IBM Investment Analyst, a plug-in for Focal Point, encapsulates probability distribution mathematics to present a prediction of future value based on actual past and present data, and on future, options-based reasoning about future value
