Can you believe that August is almost over? The end of August is the beginning of a new season for us here at Thoughts from IM Support. And that season is none other than IOD SEASON! Information on Demand is now officially only 75 days away. As we have done for the past several IOD conferences, we'll be running a blog series on key IOD sessions, activities, etc. to help get you ready.
So, without further ado, let's get this blog series going!
We know that when you attend IOD you want to make the most out of every moment -- there really is too much going on to see and do everything. So you have to pick and choose the events and activities that will make the conference the most valuable to you and your business.
Note that you can't create your official agenda until you are registered for the conference. You can save your agenda and import it once you register.
One activity you may want to register for on Tuesday Nov 5 is IBD-2313A: Where is My Big Data? A Hands On Lab with IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer. This lab features our very own technical support expert Mike Pointer, as well as Joseph Kramer and Jean Lange. Here is the description of the lab:
"Sure I have Big Data! I don't know what's in it, but I know it's big and I know it's spread around a bunch of different repositories." A common problem with Big Data is it is so big, you don't know where to start. To help you explore what you have and what to do with it, IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer comes with many different connectors to find your data wherever it exists inside the enterprise. This hands on lab will teach you the basics of integrating IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer into your existing infrastructure so you can explore your data quickly and securely. We will explore data sourced from file systems, IBM DB2, Microsoft SharePoint, and IBM Lotus Domino. This lab will give you what you need to start exploring your Big Data.
Looking forward to seeing you at IOD 2013!
