ALIGNED at CeBIT – Engineering Agile Big Data Systems

ALIGNED will host a workshop at CeBIT 2017. The workshop will be held on Monday, March 20th, 10:00 – 14:00, in Room 3A, Building CC, at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds.

In this workshop we will showcase how the latest breakthroughs in computer science research can help companies to deal with the practical challenges of big data, so that they can more efficiently and agilely integrate it into their core business processes. We will present 5 case studies from a range of different sectors: from managing hundreds of millions of clinical trial results for the NHS in the UK; via providing intelligent productivity enhancing services to legal professionals, based on drawing information from millions of complex legal documents; to one of the world’s most ambitious attempts to crowd-source high-quality historical data. In each case, we will show how tools developed in the ALIGNED project are enabling large communities of users to leverage the value of their data.

The workshop will consist of 5 presentations, each 30 minutes long with 15 minutes for questions and feedback. All presentations will focus on describing the business problems faced by an organisation and how the technologies developed within ALIGNED have helped them to turn these problems into opportunities.

As part of this workshop we will be running a special competition – we will offer 1 to 2 weeks of free consultancy services and training to the audience member who approaches us with the most interesting business problem. This is part of the ALIGNED Business Consultancy Program.
