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.

Replay the Big Data and Analytics Education Conference (BDA EdCon) and IBM Insight

EdCon 2014 brought together educators and industry leaders on October 25 and 26, 2014, in Las Vegas to learn, network, and explore curriculum changes required to close the big data and analytics skills gaps. Academic Initiative members can download the EdCon teach-the-teacher workshop materials for InfoSphere BigInsights, InfoSphere Streams, Cognos Insight, SPSS Modeler, and Case Manager.
