Today we are excited to announceÂ Â a new Extension for IBM SPSS Modeler to import data from aÂ IBM Cloudant Databases.
IBM Cloudant is a NoSQL database-as-a-service (DBaaS).Â It is a fully managed NoSQL JSON data layer that’s always on. This service is available on Bluemix too. Some weeks ago we released an extension to read JSON files for IBM SPSS Modeler and now we have directÂ connection to NoSQL JSON data layers. The extension is designed to work with Bluemix. You can download the extension here:Â https://github.com/IBMPredictiveAnalytics/Cloudant
This extension will appear in your ‘Data Sources’ palette. You will need to fill the values of the host/port/username/password and database name provided automatically in by the Bluemix environment.
We have created a sample based on an IoT use case. We used the IBM Internet Of Things sensor simulator to send Temperature & Humidity every second and store all this data on IBM Cloudant. Then we use the new IBM SPSS Cloudant Extension to import the data and to do some exploratory analysis. You can find a step by step tutorial here:Â tutorial
