IOD11 - Monday Announcements - Business Analytics and Big Data
Adam Gartenberg    

As highlighted during this morning's general session, there will be a number of announcements coming out over the course of this week.

Today's press release (IBM Transforms Data At Work, Accelerates Big Data Analytics) summarizes the announcements around Business Analytics and Big Data, including new Hadoop-based analytics software on the cloud (that can be up and running in under 30 minutes), new mobile analytics software for the iPad (downloadable from the Apples Store), and new mapping capabilities for predictive analytics software.

LAS VEGAS - 24 Oct 2011: At the 2011 Business Analytics Forum, IBM (NYSE: IBM) today unveiled new software that brings the power of managing and analyzing big data to the workplace. Whether in the office or on the road, employees can now gain actionable insight anytime, anywhere from the broadest range of data and put it to work in real-time.
The new offerings span a wide variety of big data and business analytics technologies across multiple platforms from mobile devices to the data center to IBM's SmartCloud. Now employees from any department inside an organization can explore unstructured data such as Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, weather data, log files, genomic data and video, and make sense of it on the fly as part of their everyday work experience. 
With today's news, IBM is placing the power of mobile analytics into the hands of iPad users with a free software download at Apple's iTunes Store: http://bit.ly/r68A04. The new software is designed to help employees in key industries such as financial services, healthcare, government, communications, retail, and travel and transportation use and benefit from business analytics on the go.

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 [read] Keywords: ibm notes development

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 - [read] Keywords: connections ibm lotus sametime instant messaging
