We live in a world that produces a tremendous amount of information. Today there are 4 billion mobile phone subscribers. There are 1 billion people on the internet. There are 1 billion transistors for every man, woman, and child, on the planet. And it generates a lot of information: 15 petabytes (10^16) of data. Every, single, day. This plethora of data represents both an opportunity and a challenge: how can companies discover, surface, and analyze this data for the benefit of their businesses? And further--how can companies make this information easily available to business managers?

jStart and New Intelligence Technologies

Working with SWG's Emerging Internet Technology's research group, jStart has been exploring a number of new technologies to address the new reality of massive amounts of data, as well as these key business challenges:

  • How can companies discover valuable data?
  • Once the information is discovered, how do you go about gathering it?
  • As the information is gathered, how do you analyze the information?
  • Further, how can analysis of information be made accessible to business decision makers?
  • Can the data be effectively visualized to aid business decision makers?
  • Finally, how can technology be leveraged to facilitate collaboration using this information?

The technologies jStart is currently experimenting with help address all of these issues, as well as further efforts to simplify how business users can leverage the web.
