Esri Brings Smart Mapping to IBM World of Watson 2016

Esri’s gold sponsorship at the 2016 IBM World of Watson kicks off Monday, October 24 with a new chapter in the 30+ year partnership. Esri’s collaborative offerings with IBM’s analytics solutions and services will be unveiled during booth demonstrations and presentations throughout the week.
Esri and IBM customers and developers can now take advantage of Esri data and geographic information systems (GIS) technology in the IBM SoftLayer cloud and from IBM Marketplace and Bluemix. To speed startup and productivity, oganizations of all kinds can also leverage Esri managed cloud services in SoftLayer ranging from jumpstart to fully managed support.
Esri also integrates Watson Analytics and Weather Company data with its leading geospatial technology, as well as its global data library of demographic and business data, resulting in an integrated services approach that drives customer success.
“This expansion of our three-decade long partnership with IBM creates solutions that further accelerate scalability and performance,” said SJ Camarata, director of corporate strategies at Esri. “Now, Esri’s global data library and innovative technology in areas such as spatial analytics, big data mapping, and 3D visualization support increased levels of understanding in cognitive IoT applications and workflows.”

Mapping is a natural driver of cognitive problem solving. Data overlay drives thinking and reasoning about the interrelationship of disparate information and  geography provides a fundamental context for cognitive problem solving. With Esri’s leading technology and global data working together with IBM Analytics services, Watson cognitive computing, and Watson IoT technologies, customers can now leverage the power, flexibility, and innovation that our integrated technologies provide.
