Two new commercials: IBM Watson Analytics and IBM and Twitter
Tue, Jan 6th 2015 1:14p   Adam Gartenberg
IBM recently started airing two new commercials focused on IBM's analytics capabilities. The first highlights the way that the new IBM Watson Analytics can help you make sense of your data and find new opportunities. The second highlights an example of how organizations can take advantage of the IBM and Twitter partnership to learn more about customers and apply that knowledge for competitive advantage.

Watson Analytics is now live in beta. If you haven't already signed up, there's no time like the present.

Recap: Insight 2014 Day 3 General Session
Thu, Oct 30th 2014 10:12a   Adam Gartenberg
I found the Day 3 general session of Insight 2014 to be quite interesting for a number of reasons. Captain Richard Phillip's first-hand account of his ordeal and rescue was fascinating, and Kevin Spacey's keynote was one of the more inspiring messages at a conference like this. On the business side, the challenges faced by Singapore in identifying illegal or dangerous activities in and around their ports was eye opening, and then of course there was the little matter of the landmark partners

IBM and Twitter partner on data analytics
Wed, Oct 29th 2014 7:12p   Adam Gartenberg
Today's general session from Insight 2014 was interesting for a number of reasons (including an inspiring talk by Kevin Spacey), but I want to draw attention to an announcement made right in the middle of it: IBM's partnership with Twitter to integrate all tweets (sinceTwitter's inception) and full ongoing live stream into IBM's cloud-based analytics, customer engagement platforms and consulting services. From the Wall Street Journal article on the partnership: IBM will have access to

When it comes to analytics, are you a spectator or a front runner?
Tue, Oct 28th 2014 3:12p   Adam Gartenberg
Last week IBM's Institute for Business Value released their latest analytics study. The important takeaway this time around: The need for speed. In 2014, several significant shifts occurred in the realm of big data – shifts business executives cannot afford to ignore. The most significant change: Velocity is now the value driver for big data. Enter the speed advantage. Our sixth annual analytics study revealed a small group embracing this shift for competitive advantage. These orga

Recap: Insight 2014 Day 2 General Session
Tue, Oct 28th 2014 1:12p   Adam Gartenberg
There were some great demos in today's Insight general session (and this technology is always better in live demos than pre-recorded ones, isn't it? I've included the rough time stamps should you want to fast forward the replay once available to just see the demos.) There was also a lot shared about how Watson technology is being applied to help oncologists, police investigators, and even chefs. (See the link below for a chance to become a beta tester for Chef Watson). We also heard first

How to follow IBM Insight from home
Mon, Oct 27th 2014 9:19a   Adam Gartenberg
I'll be following the IBM Insight conference from afar this year, and if you didn't make it out to Las Vegas yourself, there are still plenty of ways to stay in the loop. First, head on over to the InsightGO site and register to watch the general sessions and keynotes via live stream (starting up soon - 8:15am PT/11:15am ET today).

Introducing Watson Analytics: Analytics for Everyone

When you've got a new solution being compared to the transformational power of the spreadsheet and the iPhone, you just might be on to something. From Steve Lohr in The New York Times: Developing technology is one thing; democratizing it is another. The latter involves finding the innovation that opens the door to widespread adoption with usefulness and usability. In the personal computer era, it was the spreadsheet that transformed a hobbyists’ plaything into a must-have machine in co

Another important announcement for anyone looking to help their marketing, sales and service (e.g., front office) teams better understand their customers and engage with them in a more personalized way.

Putting analytics into the hands of decision makers
Tue, May 20th 2014 1:10p   Adam Gartenberg
As far as analytics has come in recent years, there are still challenges around making sure that the data and analysis gets into the hands of the people who need it most in a timely and easy to understand fashion. At the IBM Vision conference today, IBM made announcements that will bring us one step closer to making the notion of "analytics everywhere" a reality. The new technologies previewed today include: An analytics offering now available on the IBM Cloud Marketplace that can manage

Quantified Athletes: Using Analytics to Reduce Injuries
Wed, Feb 5th 2014 12:10p   Adam Gartenberg
Those of you who attended the IOD conference back in 2011 were treated to an interview with author Michael Lewis and Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, of Moneyball fame (amongst many other achievements). One comment that's stuck with me was a question tossed in at the very end of the interview. Billy Beane was asked how it's possible to still get a competitive advantage from the type of statistical advantages he discovered, now that everyone was on to the approach (and, as he comm

New SaaS study shows how "Pacesetters" distance themselves from the rest
Tue, Jan 28th 2014 3:12p   Adam Gartenberg
There's no question that Software as a Service (SaaS) is here to stay as a model for quickly and cost-effectively deploying new IT capabilities inside of and outside an organization. But, as in all aspects of business, some companies are finding greater advantage than others. What's special about the organizations who exhibit the highest level of SaaS adoption and who are gaining competitive advantage through their efforts?

IBM Sametime: New Name, New Features
Tue, Jan 28th 2014 1:11p   Adam Gartenberg
It's been many years since I've been involved with IBM Sametime in any capacity beyond that of an end user, but as it still has a close place in my heart, and since many of you who find your way here are still interested in Sametime, it didn't feel right not to at least acknowledge the new name that was announced at yesterday's Connect conference Opening General Session. So, as the former Offering Manager for Lotus Sametime (and briefly, for Lotus Instant Messaging and Web Conferencing -
