What we're about

To see all meetups in this group: https://www.meetup.com/pro/ibm-community/

This is an IBM sponsored Meetup group geared towards developers, data scientists, data engineers, and ALL Big Data, Cloud and AI enthusiasts. Our meetups provide an opportunity to work hands on with the solutions and tools in our Big Data portfolio and to interact and share knowledge with experts at IBM and in our extended community.

Our Meetups typically include a 45-60 min (max) presentation that serves as an introduction and overview for a specific Big Data technology. It is followed by ~3 hours to collaborate with fellow developers and apply your Big Data skills. We provide a cloud environment that you can run through the browser of your laptop at NO cost to you. Our meetups are FREE.

Meetup topics include:

- Hadoop-based analytics

- Stream Computing

- Text Analytics

- Visualization and Discovery tools for Big Data

Unified IoT from Edge to Cloud: Enabling Digital Transformation

****************************************************************************** Hazelcast will be hosting the meetup as a Zoom Webinar. Please register at the following link to receive the event connection URL via email: https://hazelcast.com/resources/ibm-cloud-virtual-meetup/ *********** Good News! You will be eligible to enter a raffle after the presentation, for a chance to win a $100 Amazon Voucher as sponsored by Hazelcast. ******************************************************************************* ABSTRACT: For decades, a sharp divide was drawn between information technology concerned with enabling data-driven business decisions, and operational technology (OT) concerned with monitoring and controlling physical processes, from factory floors to ATM machines, to connected vehicles. Only recently has there emerged a data-centric approach to IoT applications that seeks to bridge the gap between the IT and OT universes, and in doing so create a single, unified data plane that extends across the enterprise, from edge devices right into corporate data centers. This “edge-to-cloud” approach requires a new software stack that emphasizes low latency, high reliability, and flexible data models. The Hazelcast platform on IBM Edge Application Manager meets these challenges, able to deliver business insight and superior operations control at break-neck speed, even over the vast, heterogeneous data sets generated by modern intelligent devices. This talk presents the Hazelcast “edge-to-cloud” reference architecture and discusses strategies for building data-centric IoT applications on top of the Hazelcast platform and IBM Edge Application Manager.
