Internet of Things (IoT) matters at HP Discover

“You ain't seen nothin' yet,” is the phrase that comes to mind when I take a look at the HP Discover sessions on Internet of Things (IoT). Big Data mattered at past HP Discover conferences, but IoT is going to take it to the next level as projected in multiple sessions at HP Discover. Discover Theater session DT3621 from HP Labs discusses how the appliances in our homes, and the environment around us, generate data that must be harnessed and mined across the fabric of connected devices. At the same time, I am presenting on the on the impact of IoT on IT in a different Discover Theater session – DT3503. While gearing up for this session, I am reminded of a recent Twitter Chat, coordinated by the Enterprise CIO Forum, where it was abundantly clear that IoT is bound to matter to CIOs. Here are some of the key reasons why. 

A New Style of Data Science at HP Discover

Taking a sneak peek at the various sessions in the Big Data Track for HP Discover, one of the sessions that stands out is DT3619 - When Big Data becomes truly big and truly fastby Jaap Suermondt, VP, Analytics Lab, HP Labs.

It takes all types of data to discover the gold mine in your enterprise

“Is your Big Data a gold mine or garbage dump,” asks Brian Weiss, VP, HP Autonomy in his Big Data session at HP Discover. Weiss explains that enterprises need to be able to look at all types of data with context to glean actionable, meaningful insight – even for a simple phone call. You can capture different data elements about the phone call like the date, time, duration etc. But what was the prevailing mindset during the conversation? Was the caller (think customer) angry? How about having a solution to look at both the structured metadata about the phone call as well as the unstructured sentiment. Voila: HPExploreCloud - A solution that can discover the gold mine in your enterprise.

NASCAR and HP make social media matter for their customers

Flipping the remote, I see an advertisement on the TV where NASCAR CMO, Steve Phelps describes the NASCAR Fan and Media Engagement Center. In Phelps’ words, as he explains in this CNBC interview on Squawk Box, it is an enormously powerful tool that processes Big Data for NASCAR to take the right actions. This powerful solution is enabled by technology from HP, who provided the tools that can glean the intelligence from social media, the hardware that enables complex, real-time analytics as well as the services that bring it all together. NASCAR and HP make social media matter for their customers. Let’s see why.
