Last week, we held the Partnering with IBM Big Data to Grow Your Business events at the Markham and Montreal IBM offices. Our speakers were IBM experts, Dr. Niu Bai* and Terri Gerber**, who spoke on the topics:
- Why Big Data? Why now?;
- The IBM Big Data Platform: Netezza (PureData), BigInsights, and Streams; and
- Big Data Use Cases
We were happy to have such a fantastic turnout at both events, with a mix of Systems Integrators, Independent Software Vendors, Value Added Distributors and customers providing a lively and constructive Q&A session wrapping up the event with an opportunity to network with our speakers during the reception.
For those of you who were unable to join us at the IBM Innovation Center for this event, our speakers have suggested some reading material and websites for you to familiarize yourself with Big Data and the IBM Big Data Platform over the holiday season. We look forward to hosting more Big Data events in the new year.
