RETHINK big: Roadmap for European Technologies in Hardware and Networking for Big Data

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

The RETHINK big project aims to deliver a strategic roadmap for how technology advancements in hardware and networking can be exploited for the purpose of data analytics while also taking into consideration advancements in applications, algorithms and systems.

This strategic roadmap will be produced as a result of area specific and cross-functional working groups meetings and congresses. We will initially identify and evaluate the existing competencies across European Big Data application domains and technology providers in Europe and then identify the key European stakeholders, or the established and up-and-coming institutions that possess or are developing the technologies, processes or services that map to these competencies. From these stakeholder institutions, we will select technology and business experts that will chart the technological advancements.

We will bring together the key European hardware, networking, and system architects with the key producers and consumers of Big Data to identify the industry coordination points that will maximize European competitiveness in the processing and analysis of Big Data over the next 10 years.

Our hope is that this project will result in a roadmap that would be irrational not to follow.
