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.

His brainchild—an analytics-based forecast of electronics and appliance sales in the United States—has become a staple of predicting holiday sales trends.
