Wimbledon in the cloud
IBM’s cloud-based services are the perfect solution for Wimbledon’s digital content offerings. Huge unpredictable spikes in demand make providing just enough capacity to meet the peaks, a complex balancing act. IBM uses social media analytics to help predict patterns of demand to allow accurate provisioning of capacity from these centres. Predicting requirements to dynamically shrink or grow infrastructure to meet actual demand could keep costs down for any business.
