Information Catalyst at Big Data World 2018, March 2018
From March 21-22, 2018 ICE attended and ran an exhibition booth at the London Technology Show within the Big Data World Expo section. The conference included the Cloud Expo Europe, Cloud Security Expo, Big Data World, Smart IOT, Data Center World. Of particular relevance was the cross over with IOT and Cloud. The location was the London eXcel space within London’s Docklands/Canary Wharf.
The show generally attracts over 20000 (business orientated) people. There were around 200-250 exhibitors and 20 theaters.
Whilst many elements of the RED-Alert project are still in the initial developing phase, ICE was promoting RED-Alert along the lines of other projects focusing on raising awareness and making contacts as well as expressing the ideas it was working on. ICE’s tasks within RED-Alert were well received. There was also interest in the project in general as well as other H2020 programmes, both of these were new to much of this commercial audience.
As with Big Data World ICE showcased its FischerTechnik model factory which is from where ICE is getting data for the development of the CEP in the meantime that the project is able to provide good sample processed data. This ‘attraction’ ensured (again) a very investigative and attracted audience and an engaging stand demoing Industry 4.0, and other Factories of the Future EU projects, eg vf-OS and Digicor. Boys like toys and at a technology event the factory works well!
