The full agenda is as follows:

Big Data, AWS and the Data Pipeline by Martin Peters (, BI Manager with DoneDeal ( and Nigel Creighton (, CTO with DNM (

In the session, Richard will cover what Big Data means in AWS featuring a substantial e-Commerce customer. He shall explore how they have used big data technologies for machine learning and predictive analytics to work out items such as time to sell and value. Nigel shall also explore the underlying use case architecture and the data pipeline in the following areas: - Redshift as a data warehouse: - ingesting data streams using Kinesis: - Auto-scaling resources to respond to peaks and troughs of data streaming event volumes: -Datalakes using S3: -EMR and data pipeline for data processing without persistent server resources: - Map Reduce using EMR for data transformation, and aggregation: - loading data to Redshift: - Spice and QuickSight.
