What is ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud
ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud offers the power of our real-time PMML-based scoring engine on the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise. This is the same engine our clients use on-site. The only difference is that instead of installing ADAPA on your own servers, ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud comes pre-installed on a virtual server on the cloud. We call that an “ADAPA Instance”. When an ADAPA Instance is launched on the cloud, it is ready to be used. Predictive models can be deployed right-away and scoring can happen via the ADAPA Web Console, Web-Services, or Microsoft Office Excel.
How do I pay for it?
ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud is a fully hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. You only pay for the service and the capacity on a monthly basis, eliminating the necessity for expensive software licenses and in-house hardware resources. As the business grows, ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud provides a cost-effective expansion path, for example, by adding multiple ADAPA instances for scalability or failover. The SaaS model removes the burden for you to manage a scalable, on-demand computing infrastructure.
Once you sign up for ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud in our website, we will contact you to gather your credit card information and to answer any questions you may have about our billing process. ADAPA on the IBM SmartCloud does not cost an arm and a leg. Check out our pricing!

What do I get?
We provide you with a single-tenant architecture. The service is implemented as a private, dedicated instance of ADAPA that encapsulates all your predictive models and solutions. Only you have access to your private ADAPA Instance(s) via HTTPS. Your model files and data never share the same engine with other clients.
At any given time, you can have one or more instances running. For each instance, select the most appropriate instance type: "copper", "bronze", "silver", "gold" or "platinum".
