    IT Industry produces/deploys Tested IT Systems (non-validated) where as Regulated Industry need Validated IT systems to comply with the applicable Regulations.
    1. Are Tested IT Systems equivant to Validated IT Systems?
    The answer is No. Validation is much beyond Testing...

    2. Is it required to protect entire data that was produced through Validated IT Systems?
    The answer is No. The sensitive data that needs to be protected as per regulations is much smaller compared to sharable Big data for the benefit of Data Science...

    Meeting was an excellent attempt to institutionalize the community effort to build technology competency in a diversified group of enthusiastic learners.Though the objective was flawlessly met but here are something more few of our friends were looking for :-

    1. Where to start
    2. Which technologies to pick from the pool of names mentioned
    3.Those who sick to change career path from non-statistical background to data science etc etc

    There are no easy or single line answers to the above questions and in fact each of them can lead to separate meetups.

    Hopefully we will have another one sooner.

    Thanks Surya,Ashok,Ritesh for your unrelenting support in building the group and being 1st of its kind in India.

    Thanks Surya and the entire organizing team for your commendable effort in the great success of the event. Had the opportunity to learn a lot and share thoughts with many of the speakers.

    Its a great meet to know whats happening in data science space. would like to participate more such events in future.

    Excellent. Good to see so many people turn out. Excellent initiative.

    September 15, 2013

  • Srinivasa Reddy G.

    Phani - yes, data to be protected is like few drops in a glass full of wine (but bitter ones)...unfortunately entire glass of wine looks bitter and not tasted so far...could see few participants and SMEs during the meetup.

    Surya - Need to build Data Science sub-group can be named as "HDS-LSH Big Data", would like to drive and take it forward with Meetups on this subject. Can you advise in creating the sub-group to build the community and drive the meetups.

    September 15, 2013

  • Srinivasa Reddy G.

    Regulatory Compliant Cloud Computing architecture and Big Data privacy classification are evolving to build Trust on IT Systems.
    Class1 Data: Sensitive and Regulated
    Class2 Data: Sensitive and non-Regulated
    Class3 Data: not-Sensitive and non-Regulated

    Huge amount of Class3 data yet to be made available to Data Scientist from Regulated Industry by protecting Class2/Class1 data...

    Would you like to have a meetup on Big Data from Regulated Industry along with SMEs? If Yes, click on Like. Else click on Reply and provide your inputs.

    3 · September 15, 2013

  • Srinivasa Reddy G.

    Surya! It is really a great effort and appreciate the contributions from each and every one in the meetup - each one of us to help further in taking this to next level...As observed during the meetup, the real challenges and questions raised towards Healthcare and Lifesciences Big data need a separate meetup along with SMEs. Past two decades worked with Pharmaceuticals, Biologics and Medical Devices majors in EU, USA and India in providing Solutions to Regulated Operating Environments having Standalone Laboratory systems to Integrated Enterprise systems on Cloud. The real puzzle is not with the Regulated data, but the mind-set of the responsible personnel and the organizations, do not want to share data even after encryption due to lack of trust on the IT systems (non-validated) and the controls.

  • Akhil R.

    Myself Akhil Reddy - I am a student from SreeNidhi Institute of Science and Technology. I would like to thank Surya sir for conduction an awsome event with a large gatering and nice management. all the topics were nice and as a student it helped me in many ways like to know what acctually a database and datawarehouse is, what are its real time applications and how data is organized. I thank all volunteer's team as they well organized the event. Thanks to Surya sir, CTS, IEEE, and to ALLLLL the Speakers for sharing their valuable information.

    1 · September 15, 2013

  • Nammi

    Myself Nammi – Work on Tableau and Spotfire and interact most of my time with Data scientists at bank. I have nominated HDSG thinking a session of 20 odd people, but surprised to see a huge gathering.
    I would like to thank Surya, Ramam and the entire volunteer’s team as they well organized the event. I would like to be the part of it next time.
    Want to express much, but I see most of them covered what I thought of expressing in this blog. So I don’t want to duplicate the data because non covered that we will run shortage of storage space in future, if we tweet and post repetitive data in millions and trillions per day. Thus ending it here.., :)

  • Sridhar V.

    Below are my thoughts:-

    1. Event was very inspirational & most of information was news to me. It would bring a big change in freshers or career starters.

    2. Many speakers spoke about use-cases but focus was less on "What tools can be used for modelling & how should it be used?". Info on tools came as part of Q&A.

    3. I wish next time, a session of 30-45 mins should focus on how companies can implement DS. Unless companies implement and try it, industry acceptance would not reach to revolutionary numbers. This can be a real-time use-case being solved in live-demo, so that the rate of absorption of theoritical knowledge is reinforced by pillars of syntax & demo.

    4. Last, I would definitely give In-chip computing a try before Sep ends for me.


    @Surya, I am sure your name is synonymous with your quest for benefiting others at your personal expenditure of money, time and last, efforts.

    @CTS, I would now use your company as example to motivate companies I know to be part of such events.

  • Shidhartha Sankar P.

    The sessions were highly informative and it was evident that a lot of effort had been put to organize the event. Big thanks to all those involved and looking forward to more such events in future.

    September 14, 2013

  • Prabhakar A.

    Wonderful event. Some of the sessions were pretty good. Thanks to the Organizers. Couple of minor observations.....

    -> Some of the content from different speakers was repetitive. So lost interest here and there

    -> The intensity seems to be little bit diluted from afternoon. Having said that, I re-iterate that its really good and useful event. Big thanks to Surya and rest of the Organizers. Looking forward to more such events in future and also let us know if we can contribute in any manner.

    Amazing session… Eminent people… priceless information…Thanks to Surya, CTS, IEEE, and to ALLLLL the Speakers… Good that now I am part of this group…

  • Sauvik

    It was a fantastic event and I would really like to thank the organizers for putting up such a wonderful effort in making this event successful. From the meet-up I am happy to have met the practitioners of (big) data analytics from different fields/domains and also learning different opportunities/scopes from them. Being a student of Statistics, I want to apply my knowledge into practical world and help make decisions/provide insights and hence look forward to work in this very field. I would appreciate to have events/workshops stressing more on the analytics side where data analytics is used in solving business problems than on programming [NB: I never mean programming skill-set is not essential for deriving knowledge from data as it is also a tool to be used in this framework at some stage :-)]. Thanks guys!
