Talend (TLND) : Cramer again sat down with Mike Tuchen, CEO of Talend, the big data analytics firm that was privately held when Cramer last checked in, but had a successful IPO in July at $18 a share and now trades around $26.
Tuchen explained that Talend helps companies clean up and blend their varied data sources to make them usable for big data analysis. More companies are making decisions based on data, he said, and with more data being digitized, rhe need for their services is only growing.
When asked about big rivals like IBM (IBM) , Tuchen said that IBM and other players are great with traditional data, but when it comes to the new types of data being generated by the cloud and the Internet of things, that's where Talend shines.
Turning to the big data issue of the day -- How did all of the pollsters get the election so wrong? -- Tuchen explained that while the models were correct, there was one data point that was incorrect.
That point, he said, was who would turn out to vote, and that metric was off by just 2% -- but it was enough to flip swing states.
