IBM Cloud Private for Data is an integrated data science, data engineering and app building platform built on top of IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended to a) provide all the benefits of cloud computing but inside your firewall and b) provide a stepping-stone, should you want one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Going beyond this, ICP for Data is intended to provide an environment that will make it easier to implement data-driven processes and operations and, more particularly, to support both the development of AI and machine learning capabilities, and their deployment.
The main focus of this paper is in discussing the capabilities of ICP for Data. However, we also consider the underlying features of ICP.
