Mapbox @ IBM World of Watson

We’re heading to IBM World of Watson 2016 in Las Vegas next week!

IBM and Mapbox are teaming up to change the way analysts interact with data, commuters move through cities, and insurers limit risk. See Mapbox data powering IBM’s autonomous transit platform, Olli, and get hands on with Mapbox developer tools in IBM Bluemix and DataWorks. At World of Watson, IBM will show off new maps in Cognos and Watson Analytics, The Weather Company apps, Cloudant, and Weather Alerts for Insurance.

On Monday, Mapbox CEO Eric Gundersen will jump on stage for a keynote with IBM’s head of business analytics, Marc Altshuller. They’ll preview a totally new visualization experience for Cognos and Watson Analytics, with vivid satellite imagery and powerful spatial tools that make maps a canvas for querying data.

Spot emerging product markets using aggregated transaction data, predict real estate prices using pedestrian traffic, and alert insurance policyholders to dangerous weather and fire events before they happen. In short, IBM is turning dashboards and reports into actionable insights.


Cognos and Watson Analytics users can leverage real-time data, like this example of wildfire extents for property damage.

Drop us a line @Mapbox if you’ll be at the conference, and find us in person to talk about maps for business intelligence.
