Business Analytics and Optimization
An event for European Consultants and Systems integrators -IBM Montpellier, - February 9th – 10th
Despite an abundance of data and content, most decision makers act without the right information and insight. Organizations that connect people with trusted, relevant information and foster a fact-based culture are able to confidently predict, plan and act to optimize business outcomes. They are using Business Analytics and Optimization (BAO) solutions to become analytics-driven organizations. This one-and-a-half day workshop will go into the details of these solutions.
It is targeted specifically at Consultants & Systems Integrators.
We look forward to meeting you in Montpellier. Limited seats available, please register via your IBM Representative or Technical Advocate.

IBM is announcing intent to acquire Cúram Software Ltd. – the leading provider of solutions for social programs
In a move that extends IBM leadership in Smarter Cities, IBM announced intent to acquire Curam Software Ltd., the leading provider of solutions for social programs, including health & human services, workforce services, and social security organizations – bolstering Smarter Cities and the citizens they serve.
Cúram software is used in more than 80 government agency projects around the world to provide the timely access to the right social programs, deliver integrated services through those programs, and drive improved outcomes and reduced costs. The citizen-centered solutions address the increasing complexity and growing needs for social programs while delivering efficiency and improved outcomes.
Cúram’s capabilities and expertise will advance the IBM Smarter Cities initiative, which focuses on driving sustainable growth by leveraging information to make better decisions, anticipating problems to resolve them proactively, and coordinating resources and process to operate effectively. This acquisition will extend IBM’s ability to provide transformative business solutions and services to cities and governments globally.
Together, IBM and Cúram will help leaders around the world achieve breakthrough efficiency and new levels of citizen-centered service – delivering improved outcomes, total integrated service delivery and total cost reduction.
“We are committed to helping leaders in cities and governments at all levels improve efficiency and deliver improved outcomes, and increasingly improve the lives of their citizens,” said Craig Hayman, General Manager of IBM Industry Solutions. “People are facing increasing needs for social and health programs and leaders must innovate to improve delivery amid great demand. We are honored to provide solutions that help leaders deliver real value to the people they serve.”
Since 1999, IBM and Cúram have collaborated on federal, state, local, and provincial-level social programs solutions around the world. Cúram’s software is certified for use with the IBM Government Industry Framework and has been part of IBM Global Business Services’ Integrated Case Management solution since 2001.
Cúram, which means “care and protection” in Irish, is based in Dublin, Ireland, with offices throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and India. In addition to end-to-end solutions for social programs, the acquisition of Cúram brings the expertise of 700 employees. After the closing, Cúram will be integrated into the Industry Solutions division of the IBM Software Group.

Vestas Wind Systems turn to IBM Big Data
Danish energy company Vestas Wind Systems will use IBM big data analytics software and powerful IBM systems to improve wind turbine placement for optimal energy output. Turbine placement is a major challenge for the renewable energy industry, and Vestas expects to accelerate the adoption of wind energy internationally and expand its business into new markets by overcoming this challenge.
The final solution cut the processing time from 3
weeks to 15 minutes and cut server energy consumption by 40%.
Vestas is addressing the issue of turbine placement by using IBM BigInsights
software and an IBM "Firestorm" supercomputer to analyze petabytes of
structured and unstructured data such as weather reports, moon and tidal
phases, geospatial and sensor data, satellite images, deforestation maps, and
weather modeling research to pinpoint installation. The analysis, which used to
take weeks, can now be done in less than one hour.
