If the suspense was killing you, the winner of the IBM SmartCamp New York competition has been announced.

And the winner is…Localytics!

Great name.  And also a great idea.

Localytics providers real-time data analysis that helps the makers of mobile phones and tablet apps better understand their clients.

How cool is that?!

Congrats to Localytics, and all the other participants and semi-finalists (along with winners of prior city instances of SmartCamp).

Localytics was selected from more than 200 entries from around the world, and the NY finalists’ all had technology and business models that capitalized on the growing opportunity to apply analytics to data.

On the topic of analytics, IBM recently introduced a new program entitled “What’s Your AQ?”

The sitelet allows you to take IBM’s “Analytics Quotient” test to measure how ready you and your team are to apply insight to your strategy, processes and tactics.

The more your embrace analytics, the higher your AQ!
