Hosted by BDV PPP. BigDataStack, I-BiDaaS, Track & Know, and Policy Cloud join forces in a series of online demonstrations of innovative Big Data Technologies unlocking the potential of various applications.

Thursday, May 21st at 14:00-15:00 CEST

The new data-driven industrial revolution highlights the need for big data technologies to unlock the potential in various application domains. To this end, BDV PPP projects I-BiDaaS, BigDataStack, Track & Know and Policy Cloud deliver innovative technologies to address the emerging needs of data operations and applications. To fully exploit the sustainability and take full advantage of the developed technologies, the projects onboarded pilots that exhibit their applicability in a wide variety of sectors. In the Big Data Pilot Demo Days, the projects will showcase the developed and implemented technologies to interested end-users from the industry as well as technology providers, for further adoption. The first chapter in this series of engaging 1-hour online sessions: I-BiDaaS Application for the Financial sector.

One of the main goals of the I-BiDaaS project is to provide a Big Data as a self-service solution that will empower the actual employees of European companies in targeted sectors (banking, manufacturing, telecom), i.e., the true decision-makers, with the insights and tools they need in order to make the right decisions in an agile way. In this big data pilot webinar, we will demonstrate in a step by step fashion the I-BiDaaS self-service solution and its application to the banking sector.

Whether you are a Big Data expert developer, a data analyst, or a non-IT specialist with the right domain knowledge, we will show how I-BiDaaS enables you to easily utilize and interact with big data technologies. In more detail, we will present an overview of the I-BiDaaS project focusing on the requirements of the CaixaBank pilot study, the I-BiDaaS architecture with its core technologies, and a step by step demo of the I-BiDaaS solution. Last but not least, we will show through the CaixaBank’s success story how I-BiDaaS can resolve data availability, data sharing, and breaking silos challenges in the banking domain.

Background

The new data-driven industrial revolution highlights the need for big data technologies to unlock the potential in various application domains. To this end, BDV PPP projects I-BiDaaS, BigDataStack, Track & Know and Policy Cloud deliver innovative technologies to address the emerging needs of data operations and applications. To enable data operations and data-intensive applications to fully exploit the sustainability and take full advantage of the developed technologies, the PDV PPP projects brought onboard use cases that exhibit their applicability in a wide variety of sectors. This series of webinars aims at showcasing the implementation of the Big Data technologies in the pilot studies and their applicability to an ever-wider scope. The webinars will demonstrate the actual solutions implemented by performing big data operations and applications to interested end-users from the industry as well as technology providers for further adoption in their own solutions and projects. The projects will jointly illustrate how they contribute to Europe’s digital future.

Joining efforts

I-BiDaaS, BigDataStack, Track & Know will kick off this series of online demos for industry end-users and technology providers interested in further uptake of the innovative technologies developed. The recently started Policy Cloud project will highlight the adoption of technologies developed by the more mature BDV PPP project BigDataStack, showcasing its application for the policy-making sector. The series is open to other BDV PPP projects to join with virtual demonstrations of their pilot projects.
