EDF2012 Invited Talk: Wolfgang Nimfuehr - Big Data Tiger Team, IBM Software Group Europe

Wolfgang Nimfuehr

The EDF2012 organising team is happy to announce Karl Nimfuehr of IBM as an invited talk speaking about Industry Big Data solutions.
Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data - so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. Big data spans the three dimensions: Volume, Velocity and Variety supplemented by Varacity. There are multiple uses for big data in every industry – from analyzing larger volumes of data than was previously possible to drive more precise answers, to analyzing data in motion to capture opportunities that were previously lost. A big data platform will enable your organization to tackle complex problems that previously could not be solved. IBM's Big Data platform blends traditional technologies that are well suited for structured, repeatable tasks together with complementary new technologies that address speed and flexibility and are ideal for adhoc data exploration, discovery and unstructured analysis. IBM InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition is IBM’s industrial-strength, Hadoop-based solution for big data analytics and IBM InfoSphere Streams allows you to capture and act on all of your business data - all of the time - just in time.
