Desert Research Institute utilizing IBM big data analytics to assist Nevada's growth strategy
Date:12/19/2012

(RENO, NV) The Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the Desert Research Institute (DRI) today announced they are working with IBM (NYSE:IBM) to evaluate the capabilities of big data analytics and advanced research applications in the state's higher education system. This will serve as a basis for a new public and private sector collaboration that will drive overall workforce and economic development across the Silver State.

DRI's world-known environmental research scientists are using IBM's PureSystems family of expert integrated systems; which includes the PureFlex infrastructure system, the PureApplication platform system and the PureData system to analyze, visualize and model environmental data. The goal of this collaboration is to improve upon scientific research capabilities in fields ranging from hydrology and water efficiency to atmospheric physics, archaeology and renewable energy.

"From climate modeling to real-time water quality monitoring and airborne infection forecasting, IBM PureSystems will not only dramatically change the way data is managed and examined, it will offer a significant shift in the higher education business model," said Thomas Jackman, Ph.D., Interim Senior Director of DRI's Center for Advanced Visualization, Computation and Modeling (CAVCaM). "Through implementation of the IBM PureSystems technology and cloud-based services in a research environment, across multiple campuses, institutions such as DRI will be able to better achieve research goals and provide data-driven engineering services to support business and industry needs."

Nevada's GOED also has plans to broaden the scope of impact through the creation of a Center of Excellence (COE) that will serve as a collaborative innovation center between public and private sector entities who work together addressing real world social, economic, educational and environmental challenges.
