H2020 BigDataEurope is a flagship project of the European Union's Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation. In this talk we present the Docker-based BigDataEurope platform, which integrates a variety of Big Data processing components such as Hive, Cassandra, Apache Flink and Spark. Particularly supporting the variety dimension of Big Data, it adds a semantic data processing layer, which allows to ingest, map, transform and exploit semantically enriched data. In this talk, we will present the innovative technical architecture as well as applications of the BigDataEurope platform for life sciences (OpenPhacts), mobility, food & agriculture as well as industrial analytics (predictive maintenance). We demonstrate how societal value can be generated by Big Data analytics, e.g. making transportation networks more efficient or facilitating drug research.
