#AcePoliticalNews says following major victories in New Jersey and Virginia, a team of senior aides from President Obama’s ground breaking analytic’s team a few days ago the launch of Blue Labs, a strategic data, analytic’s, and technology firm that brings its innovative big data solutions to political campaigns, progressive organizations, and non-profits around the world.

Blue Labs’ founders transformed the campaign world with sophisticated micro-targeting and media analytics both before and during the 2012 election cycle. They designed and implemented the state-of-the-art technology infrastructure that powered the Obama analytic’s team and currently underlays the Democratic National Committee‘s continued support of advanced analytics for campaigns. Blue Labs has reassembled the team that constructed these highly accurate predictive models for Obama for America, including the first-ever voter persuadability model that guided the campaign’s ad buying, field, and digital programs.

“We’re not number crunchers – we’re problem solvers,” said co-founder Chris Wegrzyn. “We are pushing boundaries to create the next generation of analytics tools that will help our clients work smarter.”

“Our analytic’s team was key to the President’s victory in 2012,” said Jim Messina, manager of the Obama for America reelection campaign. “I’ve been excited to watch as Blue Labs continues to develop cutting edge approaches to analytics.” Strategic use of data has continued to be instrumental in the biggest races of 2013, including Cory Booker‘s special New Jersey Senate election and Terry McAuliffe‘s Virginia gubernatorial win.

Blue Labs has expanded its applications of data beyond politics, bringing its methods to new sectors such as healthcare, education, and civil rights. The firm offers a comprehensive set of services, including modeling, media optimization, data architecture development, analytics and data staffing, and consulting.

Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ winner and founder of the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers (CCHP) in New Jersey, has already seen the success of BlueLabs’ partnership. “The Obama campaign revolutionized the use of advanced analytics in political campaigns,” says Dr. Brenner. “CCHP is a leader in applying those same techniques to improving public health outcomes in cities like Camden. This makes Blue Labs a natural partner for us, and we’re thrilled to work with them to keep CCHP on the forefront of analytic’s.”

With today’s launch, organizations will be able to leverage BlueLabs’ proven techniques, honed in winning political campaigns, to improve results and tackle important global issues.

Responding to the League of Arab States’ statement on Syria, an FCO spokesperson said:

We welcome the League of Arab States’ strong endorsement of the Geneva II process and their support for the Syrian National Coalition, who we recognise as the sole legitimate representatives of the Syrian people.

We agree with the League that Geneva II is necessary to end to this bloody conflict and secure a transition to a sustainable political settlement in Syria, where there will be no place for Assad.

We share the League’s deep concern at the dire humanitarian situation and the need urgently to improve humanitarian access. We call on all parties to comply with the UN Security Council’s Presidential Statement on humanitarian access. The Assad regime continues to obstruct efforts by humanitarian actors to meet the needs of the millions of Syrians suffering displacement and deprivation. This is unacceptable. It must stop.
