Collaboration and Data for Insights

Big data is certainly all the buzz these days, but more and more the energy is turning to how that “big data” can provide meaningful big answers or even help tease out the right big questions.  Collaboration and partnerships among the IT professionals and IT solutions providers are increasingly important to bring the value of technology to businesses of all types. Intel is proud to be a Platinum Sponsor for Cisco Live Milan this year (Jan 27-Jan 31, 2014).

In this video, Wendy Mars, head of Cisco Data Center business in EMEA speaks of how harnessing the insights of big data to support business decision making is going to require a very important behavior change and architectural approach for enterprises across what can sometimes be a group of silos in traditional IT and networking disciplines.  Cisco Live Milan is a time and place where applications, storage, networking, and architects (data, networking, business) convene to learn more about the technologies and opportunities ahead. Cisco Live Milan presents a wonderful opportunity for Intel to participate and to collaborate and learn from with our clients and partners.

And speaking of collaboration, we will be sharing a demonstration in the Intel Booth with another of our partners, SAS Institute, with whom we have had a long-standing relationship in support of enabling business intelligence and analytics.  The demonstration highlights how data visualization can bring insights to life for our business users from our big data stores. In fact, in this world where data is everywhere and the ways in which we can leverage that data are endless even world-class top ranking tennis players like Rafael Nadal of Spain can benefit!  Check out how SAS data visualization tools enable greater insight into a winning tennis swing.

So whether you support banking, telecommunications, retail, healthcare, government, or even a world-class athlete, we hope to see you in Milan.  Please visit us at the Intel booth to hear more about big data, and how sensors will change everything as the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes reality in our lives.
