To understand the latest trends in Real time analytics, and the advantages of applied predictive analytics.


Moving to real time, “anticipation denotes intelligence”. There is and will be vast potential for improved performance using applied predictive analytics, real time in many domains. The oncoming onslaught of sensor data, beyond the firewall generated content, all injected into the enterprise. For the advanced analytics and data mining community, what differentiates is the consumption of analytics. Use off the shelf components to stitch a system together, bolt on some machine learning algorithms, and optimize. Join us for a lively discussion of a few applied examples.

    Deepinder, I presume the substance of your talk will be different from Navin’s ( Can you please take a few minutes to make the text of your proposal more focussed? That way it will be way more compelling.

  • Deepinder Dhingra Proposer 7 years ago

    I will be replacing Navin as a speaker for this topic.

    Deepinder, Few suggestions.
    1. Audience - I am assuming we will have two kind of audience. One who is using existing the tools/methodologies/process to analyze the data. Another who is also developing the tools/processes unique to their environment while using new tools /process on side (InMobi,FlipKart, InaGist). Tools - Existing olap/analytics tools vs large scale storage/consumption/analytics.

    1. Analytics - Many-2 customers already do data analysis at its basic by having simple reports/analytics (custom/off the shelf). If we do go any CIO(business guy), he has data. He does analysis which his stakeholders want (dashboards,kpi, reports etc).

    Suggestion -
    If your content can tell a story where a story emerges in terms of right tools(Matlab/R or inhouse tools or BigData tools/infra - hdfs/hive or hdfs/mr and some analytics) and challenges since your esteemed firm comes from great consulting background, that will be great.
