BDE was represented very succesfully by Dr. Simon Scerri at the BDVA Valencia Summit with the theme Big Data driving business.
In fact two Sessions were dedicated to BDE (the slides are linked here). The first Session focused on BDE’s Integrator Platform, presenting it as the one-stop solution for Big and Smart Data Management. In the second Session, the 7 Societal Pilots were presented. Around 15 attendees attended present in the two consecutive sessions (due to the intense schedule and variety of the parallel sessions, very few of the participants attended both). The exercise proved useful to further disseminate current and future results of the project, by demonstrating the hands-on use of the platform as well as the results achieved by customising it for the seven different pilot use-cases.
With over 300 attendees from Industry, Academia, Public Administration, data owners and users, this Summit also presented a key occasion for the BDE team present to meet and engage with Big Data stakeholders in Europe, influencing thus the development of the European Big Data Ecosystem.
