    Recent studies confirm that leaders who use analytics have 33% more revenue growth and 12X more profit growth than laggards – and that gap is widening. These outperforming organizations make analytics personal and pervasive, infusing intelligence into every decision and every business process to ensure they can anticipate and shape business outcomes faster than the competition. In the era of Big Data, there are limitless opportunities to harness existing and emerging information channels such as Social Media (twitter, facebook), sensors, video and audio and more into insight previously thought unimaginable or attainable. Additionally, IBM Watson Solutions are transforming expectations for how computers can help us live and work more productively.  These new solutions leverage natural language, hypothesis generation, and evidence-based learning to fundamentally change the way businesses look at quickly solving problems.
