IBM Academic Initiative

Building skills for a Smarter Planet

Game on! Big data and analytics, cloud, mobile, and social are driving strategies

The 2014 IBM Business Tech Trends Study reveals that 7 in 10 companies use big data and analytics, cloud, mobile, and social technologies. Teach your students the foundational skills needed to leverage these technologies, and help them understand why 90% of pacesetters say they are gaining competitive advantage.

Join us at the Big Data and Analytics Education Conference (EdCon 2014)

Co-sponsored by Ryerson University (Canada) and the University of Derby (United Kingdom), EdCon 2014 brings together educators and industry leaders to discuss how to address and close the skills gap with programs for undergraduate and graduate students, working professionals, and current and future executives.

  • Register for EdCon 2014 on October 25-26, 2014, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Following EdCon in the same location, stay to attend the IBM conference Insight 2014
