Summary
On Wednesday 26th, at Mobile World Congress 2014, CartoDB and Ducksboard are announcing a common solution to create complete situation rooms combining maps and charts. It will take place at the Spanish Pavilion / Congress Square / CS60, Wednesday 26th of February at 12:30PM

The volume of information available, particularly from new sources such as social media and cloud based business solutions, is growing rapidly. The opportunity to expand insights by combining data is also accelerating.

Bigger and better data give companies both more panoramic and more granular views of their business environment. But mastering that environment means finding new and creative ways to identify and display this data.

With so many KPIs and metrics to watch over, Ducksboard provides data driven companies an elegant dashboard to display up-to-date information.

But graphs alone do not tell the entire story. 80% of data has a location component on it. At the end of the day everything happens somewhere. That’s why mapping is such an important tool to understand the importance of location on data. And CartoDB is the leading technology for mapping big real time data.

Companies like Twitter, Microsoft, Airbnb and Wall Street Journal already use Ducksboard and CartoDB to stay on track of their business performance. But until now those companies had limited possibilities of comparing and combining the beautiful charts and dashboards of Ducksboard with the story-telling maps of CartoDB.

On Wednesday 16th, at Mobile World Congress 2014, CartoDB and Ducksboard are announcing a common solution to create complete situation rooms combining maps and charts.

Javier de la Torre and Diego Mariño will hold a panel during the Mobile World Congress to present this integration. Javier is CEO at CartoDB, a global startup democratizing data analysis and visualization on maps. He is a former scientist with a research focus on climate change and environmental issues. Diego is CEO at Ducksboard and founder at Abiquo, an enterprise cloud solution company based in Barcelona, San Francisco, London and Melbourne. It is the top IAAS Cloud software provider in Europe and raised 15 million dollars from international investors such as Balderton.
