Dirk Slama will convey his vision of the Internet of ThingsThe second ISC Big Data conference themed “From Data To Knowledge,” builds on the success of the inaugural 2013 event. A comprehensive program has been put together by the Steering Committee under the leadership of Sverre Jarp, who retired officially as the CTO of CERN openlab in March of this year.

The conference will present attendees with the latest developments in data-centric computing from both industry players and researchers. While last year’s conference offered a broad focus on big data in the enterprise, this year’s event will maintain that wider perspective and also provide more pragmatic content for practitioners.
