This talk starts with providing an introductory overview of IBM Research, and then presents some of IBM's statistical research activities in business analytics. Business analytics system development is a rapidly growing area in enterprise software and services business. IBM has been involved in this area actively and deeply, as reflected by the introduction of a new business analytics service practice offering, and by the acquisitions of Cognos, ILOG, and SPSS. Statistical research conducted in our department is also aligned closely with this new strategic area for IBM. In this talk, a few specific research projects as related to statistical method development for business analytics are described.
