We are very proud to announce that Captain Dash won the IBM SmartCamp on Wednesday 14th of November. We were competing against ten other finalist Start-ups that have been selected among 600 submissions all across Europe.

This victory occurs just three weeks after the release of Captain Dash and confirms our status as best business App on the Windows8 Store.

For those who haven't met with the Captain yet, let's sum up this long process:

On early September, Captain Dash won the IBM Smartcamp in France. This marks the beginning of an increasing cooperation with IBM. From then, we have been working on the integration of IBM most powerful BI tools, such as SPSS and eventually, CCI.

 

As explained in a previous article this partnership with IBM stems from a common vision:

  • CMO is the next leader in Innovation Strategy
  • Data changes the world and makes the world a smartest planet
  • 'Consumerisation of IT' is a far-reaching phenomenon
  • Hadoop is the key element for Big data

The next step for Captain Dash will be the final of the IBM Smartcamp in New York in January which will award the most strategic Start-up worldwide.

Let's rock!
