Leading companies are acutely aware that their continued relevance, and even survival, depends on harnessing big data for operational systems and new systems of engagement. IBM discussed how it's helping clients across all industries enrich their data environments by taking advantage of data that was once considered too big or complex to economically analyze and use.
IBM detailed new innovations that provide enhanced performance, consumability, and exploration capabilities to accelerate the business value of big data. "IBM has been very active this year in the Big Data space," said Reed Meseck, adding, "We appreciate the opportunity to bring our wide-reaching Big Data story and all our new news to the BBBT." According to Tracey Mustacchio, "Making Big Data more accessible to a wider range of people has been a mission of ours. News like our work on Big SQL, with InfoSphere BigInsights, was one portion of our story that we were particularly excited about sharing with the BBBT given their BI expertise."
Mr. Meseck and Ms. Mustacchio summarized their presentation in a podcast hosted by BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff.
