Join us for a unique panel discussion about Big Data trends (Smart Data, Fast Data, etc.), use cases and technologies they use. We will cover technologies such as Hadoop, R, Apache Spark, Cassandra and more!  
 This will be a great opportunity to learn about Big Data while meeting and networking with others.

Big Data is a relatively new field, so we’re getting several Big Data experts together from various companies for a panel to discuss and answer RJUG's questions and yours:  
•  What are some good use cases for ‘Big Data? 
•  I do not have big data. Why should I? 
•  How have ‘Big Data’ tools and environments changed analytics? What new capabilities and challenges exist in these environments? 
•  What is a typical analysis workflow in a ‘Big Data’ environment? 
•  I am interested in ‘Big Data’. How do I get started? 
•  What is the future of Big Data?

Java and the Internet of Things

When
Wednesday, March 19, 2014  at 5:30 – 7:00 PM EST

Where
University of Richmond, Jepson Hall, Richmond VA

Session Abstract
It is said that there will be 20 to 50 billion connected devices by 2020, generating US$14.4 trillion in value. However, the IoT value chain is highly fragmented and complex, especially when it involves edge devices. Machine-to-machine development can be complex, and current options are closed and monolithic. We need new value business models and seamless device-to-data-center platforms to truly enable the "Internet of Things".  Java enables an open, standards-based platform to deploy highly integrated, end-to-end, device-to-data-center solutions.  As the demand for smart, connected products grows, there is a huge opportunity for Java developers.

In this presentation, Sharada Achanta, VP of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware, will discuss latest development on Java for IoT, including what's new in Java 8 and Oracle Event Processing for Embedded Java, as well as example use cases where there is a convergence of IoT, Big Data/Fast Data and Cloud.

Presenter
Sharada Achanta Vice President, Product Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware, North America at Oracle and previous CEO and Founder at MarketFeat has a 20 year track record of delivering extraordinary results in enterprise software marketing and engineering, spanning go-to-market initiatives & complete product /marketing lifecycles.  She has expertise in enterprise and SMB software applications, platforms, tools, Internet/e-commerce, search, appliances, services, communication with press, analysts, IP, M&A, SCM/SRM, corporate, solution and vertical marketing, positioning, messaging, programs.  She is consistently recognized as an outstanding performer, leader and team-player combining strategic thinking, creativity and a collaborative work style with execution and measurable results at every job, every level and every organization.
