GigaOm Pro has a webinar on Dec 7, 2011 10 - 11a PT on Big Data.
The Big Machine
How the Internet of Things Is Shaping Big Data
Even relatively conservative forecasts predict there will be 50 billion connected devices online by the end of the decade. Over time, the majority won’t be laptops or phones, but rather machine-to-machine connections from network infrastructure, sensors in cars, appliances, healthcare monitors and the like. They’ll produce data that needs to be combined and analyzed alongside structured data, application logs, customer info and social media streams. Already today, companies across multiple industries and government agencies are struggling to harness the sheer volume, complexity and variety of the data generated. In this webinar, we’ll look at the various kinds of machine-driven big data, how to develop an analytics and usage framework for them, and how companies can use these data to run their businesses.
Join GigaOM Pro and our sponsor Splunk for “The Big Machine: How the Internet of Things Is Shaping Big Data,” a free analyst roundtable webinar on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at 10 a.m. PST.
