@BigDataExpo Silicon Valley (November 4-6, 2014, Santa Clara, CA)
The Perfect Storm Intensifies - The Convergence of Big Data, Cloud and the Internet of Things Is Now at Full Strength
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. Without bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover you either end up with an Internet of somethings and/or a big mess of data. [continued]
Building an Agile Big Data Infrastructure: A Different View
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver data in a meaningful way, one that really delivers on what end-users need to maintain a competitive position in fast-changing markets. [continued]
Reading Your Customers: How the Data Science of Email is Solving Today's Business Problems
There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. [continued]
Big Data's Potential in Helping To Secure the Internet of Things
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. [continued]
Using Big Data to Make Key Business Decisions
Working with Big Data is challenging, especially when decision makers depend on market insights and intelligence from your data but do not have quick access to it or find it unusable. Learn how a revolutionary Cloud based BI along with Mobile Analytics is already changing the way organizations rely on data for decisions that affect operations as well as strategy. Also learn how combined Predictive Analytics, Data Modelling, Mobile, and Cloud BI are fast changing the key decision making mechanisms in the Enterprise. [continued]
Encryption and Access Control for Cloud and Big Data Environments
Cloud and big data present unique dilemmas: Embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization's assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements? Join this discussion on how to address data security in cloud and big data environments so that your organization isn't next week's data breach headline. [continued]
Making Interactive Video Streams Truly Instant
When one expects instantaneous response from video generated on the internet, lots of invisible problems have to be overcome. [continued]
Making Decisions on Streaming Data
Amazon, Google and Facebook are household names in part because of their mastery of big data. But what about organizations without billions of dollars to spend on big data tools - how can they extract value from their data? Join Databricks CEO and co-founder Ion Stoica for a discussion surrounding how the zero management cost and scalability of the cloud is addressing the challenges and pain points that data engineers face when working with big data. Ion will share how the growing demand for cloud-based big data workloads and frameworks is shaping the future of big data analysis. [continued]
High Performance, Scalable Big Data Solutions in a Bare Metal Cloud
The cloud provides an easy onramp to building and deploying Big Data solutions. Transitioning from initial deployment to large-scale, highly performant operations may not be as easy. Understanding the benefits, weaknesses, and performance characteristics of public and bare metal cloud deployments can help you make the right decisions. [continued]
Implications of Moore's Law on Hadoop Deployments: The Cost of Slow Time to Production
Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore's Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g. Hadoop, OpenStack) tend to be significant capital expenses. Infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical. [continued]
The Pain Curve - Lack of Automation Leads to Failure
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. I've seen this problem occur time and time again. This talk describes why clusters are so different from farms of single-purpose servers that reside in traditional data centers, and why without an automated solution that can address the cluster requirements, real pain is coming and failure is certain. [continued]
The Story Behind Big Decisions
Are your Big Data initiatives resulting in Big Impact or Big Mess? We'll share our successes in improving Big Decision outcomes by building stories compelling to the target audience - and our failures when we lost sight of the plotline, distracted by the glitter of technology and the lure of buried insights. Our cast of characters includes the agency head [city official? elected official??] perpetually waiting for the report from the latest exploratory committee and the division executive relying on gut instinct; and our epilogue offers guidelines that you can use to more effectively influence decisions and improve strategic decision outcomes. [continued]
The Next Wave of Big Data Analytics: Internet of Things and Sensor Data
There's big data, then there's really big data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, big data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines. [continued]
The Industrial Internet and the Cloud: Challenges in the Road Ahead
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to Cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines & devices with Big Data and the Cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy. This session will focus on public-private work being done today to identify the IoT standards, architecture, frameworks and security needed to enable and accelerate the $32 trillion opportunity ahead. [continued]
The Spatial Component of Your Big Data
This session will show how the spatial component of your BigData can be harnessed and visualized adding another dimension of power and analytics to your data. We will discuss the spatial queries that can be used within the Hadoop ecosystem and their integration with GeoSpatial applications. [continued]
