Big data has gone from being used only in niche applications to becoming an increasingly mainstream part of modern business. But compared to traditional IT architectures, there’s typically a lot less control and governance built into big data systems. Big data is a key part of digital transformation and the business models of the future. Organizations that have robust systems in place and that ensure they can be trusted will be better positioned to take advantage of these powerful new technologies. Big Data is big, but some organisations have concerns regarding its trustworthyness.

In this webinar, Francisco Brasileiro and Ignacio Blanquer will discuss the trustworthiness requirements of big-data applications deployed atop cloud infrastructures, and how the ATMOSPHERE platform can be used to handle them. This will be explained using as example a medical application developed in the context of the ATMOSPHERE project, and deployed over a transatlantic federated cloud infrastructure.

Who should attend?

Cloud service providers, open source communities, Startups, SMEs & IT Vendors, managers and users of these services, including cloud-based application developers.
