News: Cleo Enlisted to Advance Big Data Analytics, Integration for NSF’s Midwest Hub

LOVES PARK, IL — Cleo, a leading provider of enterprise data integration solutions with deep expertise in moving the world’s business data, today announces its membership in the Midwest Big Data Hub (MBDH), a regional collective funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support complex data collection and knowledge-based decision making.

The NSF this month announced $5 million in awards to establish four regional hubs for data science innovation. The Midwest network of academia, government, and industry – including Cleo, John Deere, Ford, GM, and GE Aviation – will address increasing challenges in collecting, managing, mining, and analyzing growing and increasingly complex data and information collections to guide decision making, specifically for Midwest-related challenges.

The MBDH supports activities that aggregate expertise, projects, and resources, enabling communities to function along multiple “spokes” across themes of importance to the Midwest – society, natural/built environments, and biomedical sciences. Cleo will collaborate on the Business Analytics Spoke to advance big data applications and best practices for analysis.

“Cleo is excited to contribute to the Midwest Big Data Hub with its big data integration expertise,” said Mahesh Rajasekharan, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Cleo. “Today’s business world faces a growing set of data integration challenges as older integration solution architectures are rendered obsolete with big data challenges. And being a contributor to the ‘big data brain trust’ for the MBDH enables Cleo to demonstrate next-generation business data integration solutions on a global scale.”
