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.

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-BiDaaSBigDataStackTrack & 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 industry as well as technology providers, for further adoption.




The I-BiDaaS mission is to leverage advanced Big Data technologies for data ingestion, batch and streaming analytics, and advanced visualizations, in order to harness the knowledge hidden in multiple heterogeneous data sources. The I-BiDaaS solution offers the ability to both expert and non-expert Big Data practitioners to understand their data, to process it, to visualize it, to communicate it, and finally to extract value. 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 telecommunication sector. In more detail, we will present an overview of the I-BiDaaS project focusing on the requirements of the Telefonica pilot study, the I-BiDaaS architecture with its core technologies, and a step by step demo of the I-BiDaaS solution.

Who should attend?

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 utilise and interact with big data technologies.
