Integrators at Work! Real-Life Applications of Apache Big Data Components - Moderated by Phil Archer, W3C

The event will offer both insights and a hands-on opportunity to learn about and try out the Big Data Platform devised by the BigDataEurope (BDE) project. It's most striking feature is the ease with which many Apache big data components like Apache Spark, Flink, Kafka, Cassandra and Solr can be instantiated through a simple UI thanks to the project's use of Docker containers and Docker Swarm.

BDE is producing 7 pilot instances aligned with the 7 H2020 Societal Challenges (SC), each of which targets a real-world use-case. Things like handling the 2GB of data produced each day by a single typical wind turbine; data mining academic journals and matching the named entities with further information about them including images; tracking changes in land use and matching them with social and professional media feeds. Many of these use cases depend on another key feature of the BigDataEurope platform - the semantification of big data.

Participants will also have the opportunity to shape the next stage of the BDE platform, based on their unique skills and experiences with the Apache technology.
