Innovation Martlesham, in association with IP-Network, would like to invite you to another Breakfast Speaker Event. With guest speakers:  Professor Mohamed Maguid, UCS, on ‘Big Data’ & Alex Healing, BT, on ‘The Opportunities and Challenges of applying Visual Analytics to Big Data’. Data is receiving increasing attention in the business community, however there is some confusion about what ‘Big’ actually means and whether SMEs are in a position to effectively engage with the broad scope of Big Data sources and technologies. Mohamed will explore the Big Data movement and the new technologies that help businesses leverage the opportunities big data presents. The recent surge of work towards Big Data technologies has meant that we can now do things with data that could only have been dreamt of some years ago, whilst some other challenges remain unsolved - visual big data analytics being one of them. Alex will discuss visual analytics as a key concept in working with data-rich tasks, as well as the challenges when applying this at scale in the world of big data. He will draw on his experience in the domain of cyber security where data volumes are virtually unbounded and where analysts don't necessarily even have a clear idea of what they're looking for in order to combat the attacks from their adversaries! PLACES ARE LIMITED AND ATTENDANCE IS BY REGISTRATION ONLY. Please register by contacting and await confirmation that you have been successful.
