A Unique Big Data Opportunity for Entrepreneurs
A new generation of startups is entering the market with software designed to analyze large volumes of data.
IBM is coaching a new group of entrepreneurs who will compete on June 28th and 29th in the New York City IBM Global Entrepreneur SmartCamp competition. The five
finalists have developed software that helps people and businesses better manage energy consumption, monitor
environmental hazards, understand mobile device usage patterns and track brand sentiment.
Today, 83 percent of midmarket CIOs surveyed by IBM have identified analytics, the ability to extract
actionable insights from "Big Data" as their top-priority investment area. Software that uses Watson-like
analytics to interpret and apply big data represents a unique opportunity for the entrepreneur community. IBM's Watson, the
machine that bested Jeopardy! quiz show champs, represents the most advanced analytics technology available.
NYC Analytics SmartCamp
Five startups whose technology and business model
capitalizes on this trend will meet with IBM and the venture capital community at the New York competition
June 28 and 29. By pushing the boundaries of what is possible with analytics, cloud and mobile computing,
these entrepreneurs are creating new business opportunities and driving economic growth.
