Big Data Drives The Cloud
& The Internet of Things!
Join Us at Big Data Expo West Nov 4-6 in Santa Clara!
Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things.
And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future--it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher.
Big Data Expo West is the place where you can see the technologies and use cases that are delivering Big Data to enterprise IT.
Big Data Expo West is co-located at the Santa Clara Convention Center in the heart of Silicon Valley with Cloud Expo West--the world's most longstanding and significant event in the world of cloud computing.
Attend Big Data West and benefit from technical and strategic Breakout Sessions, General Sessions, Keynotes, Power Panels, and the largest exhibition floor in the industry.
Enterprise storage. Business analytics. Real-time cloud.
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications. These are just some of the topics and knowledge you'll receive at Big Data Expo West. Attend, learn, and contribute to the discussion!

The Perfect Storm Intensifies - The Convergence of BigData, Cloud and the Internet of Things is Now at Full Strength By Mac Devine
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. Without bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover you either end up with an Internet of somethings and/or a big mess of data. [continued]

Building an Agile Big Data Infrastructure: A Different View By Cory Isaacson
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver data in a meaningful way, one that really delivers on what end-users need to maintain a competitive position in fast-changing markets. [continued]

Reading Your Customers: How the Data Science of Email is Solving Today's Business Problems
By Aaron Beach
There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. [continued]
Speaker Bio: Aaron Beach is a data scientist with experience in email services, energy systems, privacy, social networks, mobile apps, natural language processing, recommendation systems and Big Data. He has a PhD in Computer Science and has published over 25 research papers. [continued]

Big Data's Potential in Securing the Internet of Things
By James G. Kobielus
Security is critical to Internet of Things (IoT) adoption because we want to make sure we can trust the sensors, actuators, rules engines and other connected componentry we embed in every element of our existence. Bringing this down to earth is as easy as pointing out that people's smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, appliances, entertainment centers and home security systems are all becoming IoT-connected endpoints. How vulnerable will you be to security vulnerabilities and privacy violations from any and all of these? In this session, Kobielus will discuss how IT professionals should approach addressing the security challenges of IoT. He will describe IoT vulnerabilities at the device, application, and network level. He will present a multi-layered IoT-security vision that includes incorporation of robust security protections into IoT products plus more global approaches that rely on consolidated big-data-powered security incident and event monitoring.

General Session | Real-time Big Data: An Agile approach
By Cory Isaacson
You use an agile process, your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure?
The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile — they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Speaker Bio: Cory Isaacson is CEO/CTO of CodeFutures Corporation, maker of dbShards, a leading database scalability suite providing a true "shared nothing" architecture for relational databases. Cory has authored numerous articles in a variety of publications including SOA Magazine, Database Trends and Applications, and recently authored the book Software Pipelines and SOA (Addison Wesley). Cory has more than twenty years experience with advanced software architectures, and has worked with many of the world's brightest innovators in the field of high-performance computing. Cory has spoken at hundreds of public events and seminars, and assisting numerous organizations address the real-world challenges of application performance and scalability -- effectively applying emerging technologies to a variety of fields including social networking, mobile applications, gaming and high volume transaction systems.
