Bob Gourley, CTOVision

As agencies work to develop their plans for dealing big data, several use cases involving Cloud, cyber security, and real-time fraud analytics are new and exciting.  The presentation will review the progress in planning and how these new use cases are leveraging innovative technologies and techniques.

  • Technology Showcase:  Sneak Peek with JackBe

Real-time data analytics offer an innovative way to quickly gain value from streaming and big data sources.  Be the first to see JackBe's newest analytical capability as it flies on big data powered by in-memory data speeds.  In addition to a sneak peek with a LIVE demo, the technical team will explain the technical details behind these capabilities and how they actually work.

  • Unpanel Similar to an un-conference, the audience (a.k.a. WE) will suggest big data performance and scale-related challenges and the group will select experts to speak on them.  Then, we will hold a moderated discussion on the topics.


Real-time, real cases - this is a MUST-meetup for all Big Data fans!


And to keep the BIG conversation going - 2 lucky meetup-ers will receive complimentary passes to the upcoming Government Big Data Conference and Expo on Oct. 2, 2012 in Washington, DC!

    I'm not that into the cocktail party aspect of MeetUps, but the presentation, service, and snacks were fine, and the crowd was professional and polite, so no issues.

    Just so everyone gets the same answer...jeans are fine and yes I am wearing them. And yes the food there is great! It is the first meet up for our group so we splurged on the venue, food, and speakers. The rest is all up to you to contribute so that the conversation is great too!

    Parking is like...9 dollar after 5 in that garage. They take cash.

    See you tonight
