Hands-on with Stream Computing: Creating a Real-time Analytics Application



  • Join us on Wednesday, November 13 for our next Big Data Developer Meetup!

    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.  Beyond automotive applications, the need for a real-time big-data analytics platform is becoming critical in other industries, including Government, Telecommunications, Healthcare, Energy and Utilities, Finance, and Manufacturing.  

    Bring your laptop, because you'll have an opportunity to get hands-on with InfoSphere Streams and apply this exciting new technology yourself! If you're not ready to get your hands dirty, that's OK.  We'll also be showing an additional deep dive demo of how to build a real-time analytics application.

    Doors open at 6pm for registration and networking, while the program starts at 6:30pm.  This Meetup is FREE.  Food & beverages will be provided.
