Two great opportunities: Big Data and Analytics whitepaper and webcast

July 3, 2014

Here’s an opportunity to hear from IDC analysts in a webcast as they share insight from the whitepaper they authored, “The Big Opportunity for IBM Business Partners in Big Data and Analytics.”

https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=registration.jsp&eventid=811716&sessionid=1&key=F6900898D2A03342B852882FA8B0BF81&sourcepage=register

And, just as a teaser, here’s a sneak preview about the IDC findings:

  • Projected revenue of over $32 billion by 2017
  • Focus on Line of Business Decision Makers for sales
  • Big Data and Analytics as a profitable “fast turn” business – potential of sales cycles lasting fewer than 90 days

The IDC whitepaper (requires IBM ID and password) includes the story of three IBM Business Partners (YaData, Aginity, and eCapital Advisors) as they approach the Big Data and Analytics market with their solutions.

This is such an important opportunity, that we’ve dedicated a webcast for this whitepaper. I can’t stress enough how important it is that you attend the webcast to learn more about the market opportunities with Big Data and Analytics.

I hope you’ll join me for the webcast. It will be an hour well spent!
