Invitation for the April-Meet up of the Big Data User Group

Karlsruhe is calling: The Big Data User Group is meeting next on  28th April 2016 at 18:30 hrs We extend a warm welcome to you all once again and looking forward to a great evening of interesting presentations. We are meeting this time in Burghof Karlsruhe, Haid-und-Neu-Straße 18.

Accelerate Big Data projects with clever development tools ((Armin Wallrab, Talend)
Big Data is in everyone’s mouths. The question is no longer “if” but “how” Big Data can successfully be implemented. That is:

  • How do I bring data in to the cluster and then out?
  • How do I develop typical processing steps in my cluster?
  • How do I clarify it to my department?
  • How do I industrialize my Big Data processes?

In his presentation, Armin Wallrab shows how typical processes can be implemented on a cluster without coding with Talent-components. He will also present practical and different usage scenarios based on typical customers like Otto Group, AirFrance or General Electric.

About the speaker:
Armin Wallrab works as Pre-Sales Manager Central Europe, Talent and leads a team of Solution Architects. He consults strategic customers with the implementation of complex integration projects as well as with the development of Big Data solutions and the application of Cloud technologies.

From real time to real results: building a global media buying platform (Dr. Jan Stoess, Adello)
With the increasing prevalence of algorithmic media trading, the key to successful mobile advertisement lies in the automated decision making: processing thousands of transactions per second to predict the market, to buy, to trade, and to prevent fraud.

In this talk, Jan Stoess will discuss architecture and challenges to real-time mobile advertisement and analytics in a production deployment. He will cover the full data pipeline from real-time data acquisition, real-time and predictions, processing, continuous archival, analytics and reporting.

Zur Person:
Dr. Jan Stoess is co-founder and VP engineering at Adello. He leads the engineering team that is behind AdCTRL’s award-winning technology. Prior, he was working as a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Jan Stoess received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Karlsruhe.
