The Network of Big Data Centers of Excellence in Europe is up and running

BDVA Valencia Summit held a new meeting of the Network of Big Data Centers of Excellence in Europe.

The main focus of the Center of Excellence (CoE) Network will be research topics, and how they can be transferred into relevant industries.

The initiators of this bold initiative already decided on the next steps: collect best practices and key achievements of each center, define big challenges, meet on regular basis, and align with other European initiatives.

Free Webinar: Getting started with Apache Flink using the BDE platform

The BigDataEurope project's upcoming Webinar is featuring one of Apache Flink’s biggest committers, Kostas Tzoumas, CEO of dataArtisans. Apache Flink is an open source framework for distributed stream and batch data processing that provides an execution environment for transforming unbounded data sets where the time dimension is critical. That makes it ideal for working in areas like transport and Internet of Things where data comes as streams from sensors and where the value of that data is highly time-dependent.

During this (free) Webinar you’ll discover:

Community Survey for monitoring Big Data Value SRIA extended until October 10th!

The BDVA (Big Data Value Association) launched its yearly community survey for monitoring the Big Data Value Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). The objective of the community survey is to engage with the wider Big Data community to ensure a comprehensive perspective concerning the technical and business impact of the SRIA technical and non-technical priorities as well as to identify emerging priorities with high impact for the European big data economy. The results of the community survey will be used as input for the regular SRIA update.

If you are an expert, interested or working in the European big data economy, we invite you to share your opinion by answering the short questionnaire on http://bdva.sirap.sgizmo.com/s3/.

The survey should not take longer than 10 minutes.

We extended the deadline until 10 October 2016.
