Share your views - Public Consultation on the Big Data Value Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda now open!

The European Technology Platform for Software and Services NESSI, together with partners from the FP7 project Big, have drafted a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) on Big Data Value. The objective of the SRIA is to describe the main research challenges and needs for advancing Big Data Value in Europe in the next 5 to 10 years. The SRIA will be an important channel for providing input to the European Big Data Value Partnership that aims to establish a Public Private Partnership on Big Data Value.

The Dimensions of Big Data

Today, analysts seek to derive insight from large, heterogeneous, high-velocity (i.e., big) data sets using varying data analysis methods. These data sets are ubiquitous. They arise due to burgeoning cloud computing services, the anticipated Internet of Services (IoS), and the emerging Internet of Things (IoT). Big data is often defined as any data set that cannot be handled using today’s widely available mainstream solutions, techniques, and technologies.

Opening soon: Consultation on the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda

As announced in the European Data Forum 2014 - in the networking session on 20 March organized by the European Technology Platform NESSI and the FP7 Project Big - a public consultation on the Big Data Value Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda will soon be opened here under the tab "consultation".We are looking forward to hearing your views - stay tuned!

TeraLab: Research Platform in the field of Big Data launched
