In this slidecast, Michael Haydock from IBM presents: IBM Fellows: Extraordinary Achievement by Exceptional Individuals.
The IBM Fellows program is a prestigious honor that has a direct correlation to the company’s innovation and technology leadership. The honorees include a diverse group of IBMers with one thing in common: a commitment to tackling the world’s biggest problems with ingenuity, invention and inspiration. A common thread for many of this year’s inductees is their commitment to developing solutions and practical applications in the field of Big Data and Analytics. IBM is a leader in the space – with 1500 Big Data and Analytics-related patents in 2013 alone, and $24 billion in investments since 2005 through both acquisitions and R&D – and these fellows maintain the drumbeat of momentum that has made IBM number one in Big Data market share for the second year running. The new group accounts for a combined total of 283 issued patents and they join a select group of inventors whose efforts benefit from IBM’s more than $6 billion annual commitment in research and development.”
