TalkCulture eats Big Data for breakfast
Why you need a culture of trust instead of control to lead your company into using Big Data
AbstractDigital Transformation - and Big Data being a central part of it - is mainly a cultural transformation to values like transparency, collaboration and participation.
So in essence people, not technology, are the most important piece in the digital transformation puzzle.
Big Data is a strong driver for transparency. Resistance is often met, when people are under the impression that this transparence - in a culture of control - will be used against them.
So leaders have to credibly tell a story of trust and they also must be willing to loose control as it is no more the “hippos” (highest income paid person’s opinion) who is finally making decisions, but Data that is driving it.
“Without data you are just another guy with an opinion.”
We want to tell you about use cases how companies successfully shifted to the usage of Big Data by considering the cultural dimension

TalkQuery, compare and visualize time series
AbstractOnce you have begun to gather various metrics, the question arises, how can you make use of them?

One popular way to work with large amounts of data is the Elastic Stack. Based on a general overview of its components, we are specifically taking a look at the time series component called Timelion. With it you can easily query, compare, and visualize one or more metrics over any given timespan.

Talk Why our Startup chose a BigData project
AbstractNowadays, BigData is no longer just an experimental tool or service. Companies not only in technology, but also in fashion, sport, health, transport and many more, have started to achieve astounding results by analyzing data. Cost reduction, faster and better decisions and new products and services are the values that the analysis and usage of BigData is bringing.

Talk Intro to Kx with a focus on streaming analytics
AbstractThe ability to process analytics in real-time is major part of the Big Data challenge, particularly in IoT due to the sheer volume and velocity of data being ingested from an ever-increasing number of data sources. In this talk Chris will introduce Kx, discuss how it can help with these challenges and highlight some of the key successes it has had so far in this space.
