IBM (News - Alert) and Palatnir have announced the release of a new collaboration that hopes to bring AI solutions to businesses that are underutilizing company data.

As cloud networking continues to transform the business world, IBM and Palatnir teamed up to create a platform that allows businesses to build and deploy AI-infused applications without technical expertise. Palantir for IBM Cloud Pak for Data, the new AI solution, will allow companies to use IBM Watson and other software components using Palantir’s Red Hat (News - Alert) OpenShift to access and analyze vast amounts of data for improving operations. According to an IBM business survey, almost 75% of participants said they are exploring or implementing AI, but 31% of survey participants noted increasing data complexities and silos prevented successful adoption. The new product by IBM and Palatnir may open the door to AI for companies that lack the technical resources.

"Our clients deliver products and services while operating in some of the most complex, fast-changing industries of the world," said Rob Thomas, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Data Platform, IBM. "Together, IBM and Palantir aim to make it easier than ever for businesses to put AI to work and become data-driven throughout their operations."

Palantir for IBM Cloud Pak for Data will include an information architecture with self governing artificial intelligence. It was designed with a "no-code/low-code" approach for building applications, giving other sectors outside of tech with the tools to enhance operations with features such as data-driven decision making and automation.  The two companies have also pulled resources to help other businesses overcome AI adaptation obstacles using IBM’s Data Science and AI Elite Team.

"Our partnership with IBM combines our forces to put our joint solution into the hands of the institutions and people who need it most and will propel the world's most critical institutions into an unprecedented new digital age.” said Alex Karp, Chief Executive Officer of Palantir.
