The new Business Analytics & Optimization (BAO) Study (launching today, Dec. 9th) is entitled Breakaway because the report found that organizations that were making smarter decisions and applying predictive analytics were starting to put distance between themselves and competitors.
It also found that such breakaway businesses were succeeding, even in these challenging times, by taking intelligent risks and embracing new opportunities.
In that light, tomorrow’s webcast is something of a first for IBM: a live, webcam-enabled video dialog between BAO leader Fred Balboni and James Taylor, lead author of Smart Enough Systems with Neil Raden, a thought leader on the analytics frontier of Decision Management, and CEO and Principal Consultant at Decision Management Solutions.
Finally, the webcast will also kick off the Analytics Virtual Center (AVC): a 3D, voice-enabled collaboration space intended to complement the six physical analytics centers IBM has launched this year in London (just last week), Berlin, Beijing, Tokyo, New York and Washington D.C. In fact, a group of viewers will be watching the webcast live from within this new, easy-to-use virtual complex.
