The Big Data Everywhere (BDE) is conference jointly organized by MapR and Cisco. The objective of BDE is to bring together prospects and partners to learn about the business and technical aspects of Big Data.
BDE is organized in the US, Europe and Asia. We had our first BDE event in Asia Pacific for 2016 Singapore on May 10 at the Intercontinental Hotel.
Besides speakers from MapR and Cisco, we also invited two external speakers to share at the event. The first is Lazada who is running their Analytics and Data Science on MapR. The second is EACIIT, a Data Analytics and Application solution who is running their platform on MapR.
We had a great turnout of more than 100 participants spanning across various industries at the event.
Below are some highlights of the highly successful event.
