After a bit of a break we have two exciting talks lined up. EMC is proudly sponsoring the event. Hope you can make it for some mid-winter pizza, beer and a journey into the world of fast big data and visualisations!
Big Data - Fast Data with Pivotal: Mark Burnard (EMC)
In April this year, EMC and VMware launched a joint venture company called Pivotal, combining "big data" and "fast data" technologies with PaaS. Shortly thereafter, GE invested $105M into Pivotal. What were they thinking? Mark Burnard, who has presented to us before on the subject of Big Data, will introduce some "big data, fast data" use cases and explain the thinking behind the launch of Pivotal. With analysts predicting this market to grow to $20B by 2017, this is a space we want to understand.
The Art of Visualisation: Lachlan McCalman (NICTA)
From finding hot rock deposits for power generation to monitoring the environment, NICTA has been working on a number of data fusion projects to solve big problems for Australia using Big Data Analytics. Lachlan will demonstrate some of the visualisations they have produced as a product of the analytics and describe some of the tools and techniques he uses to transform data into beautiful renderings.
