IBM Big Data Developer Meetup Series



  • IBM Big Data Developer Meetup Series

    Join us on Thursday, May 2nd for our next Big Data Developer Meetup!

    This meetup will focus on Real-Time Location Based Analytics and will include a presentation, demo, hands-on session (bring your laptop), and pizza! Doors open at 5:30pm for registration and networking, while the program starts at 6:30pm.

    With smart phones and fully instrumented cars, the amount of data we can collect from moving objects is growing at staggering rates. In a few years, the automotive industry will be the largest data producer of data after utilities -- bigger than health care. And with this Big Data volume comes Big Data challenges. The opportunity for applying all this data in real-time to problems in transportation, congestion management, emergency response, microweather prediction, supply chain management, and so on is tremendous. But this requires a real-time analytics platform that can integrate GPS locations, telematics messages and sensor readings, video, and other kinds of information--and scale up to any level.

    Join us to learn about how IBM InfoSphere Streams is addressing this Big Data challenge. The event will kick off with a presentation and will be followed by a live demo.  Bring your laptop, because you'll then have an opportunity to get hands on with InfoSphere Streams and apply this exciting new technology yourself!

    Pizza & beverages will be provided!
