New Study: Analytics for Public Sector
Adam Gartenberg    

The IBM Institute for Business Value has just released a new study, "The Power of Analytics for Public Sector."  

In 2010 the IBV interviewed over 100 public sector executives from around the world to understand their approaches to building analytics competency and surface an initial framework relevant to the public context.

Some of the highlighted best practices from the study include:
1.        Leadership -  Smarter decision making in the public sector is more important than ever – immense complexity is expanding the roles for analytics.
2.        The data paradox is the #1 barrier to more systemic analytics adoption and use – and with immense complexity, more severe than the private sector.
3.        Making better choices within constraints remains the top priority today and in the next three years; leaders want to inform those choices with new, more predictive insights. Though the most experienced leaders are much farther along, they too will have to continue to deepen their analytics competency and innovate because nothing stands still.
4.        Analytics talent is more concentrated than it is embedded throughout the organization; and most of their time is spent collecting and organizing data vs. influencing the problem solving with their analysis.

In other public sector news, IBM announced yesterday that it is working with the City University of New York (CUNY) to develop new analytics technology that will help K-12 public schools in New York City reduce their energy consumption.  The new analytical software tracks, forecasts, simulate and optimizes energy consumption in buildings.  The project will provide information and skills to help facility staff and property managers achieve significant energy savings, greenhouse gas emission reductions and cost savings.  (Press Release:  City University of New York and IBM to Reduce Energy Consumption in Public School Buildings)

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 [read] Keywords: ibm notes community enterprise network twitter

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 [read] Keywords: ibm applications consulting enterprise twitter

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).
