Networking and Breakfast
Sumon Sadhu, Director of Intelligence at Quid, Inc., will open today's meeting with statistics and details that will frame the discussion and give all participants a solid context for understanding the challenges and possibilities for big data and analytics in the context of telecom.
Panel: The Carrier Perspective
Carriers play two potential roles in the Big Data ecosystem, both as customers and suppliers of solutions. Fixed and mobile carriers aggregate tremendous amounts of data, any of which might be useful for network planners, customer support, service planning, and more. But the data, machine-generated by millions of network elements and terminals, is potentially too vast to handle - thus the need for Big Data solutions. Meanwhile, as the operators of the infrastructure, peering points, and low-latency fiber and LTE networks, carriers could generate many new lines of business and grow revenues from the Big Data opportunity.
Moderator: Dr. Satya Ramaswamy, Tata Consultancy Services
Thomas Neubert, Deutsche Telekom
Mark Bagley, BT Group plc

Panel: Changes in the Storage Paradigm
The old practice of storing structured data in planned relational databases was based on a prohibitive cost of data storage, but with the price per GB ever-dropping, the amount of data that can affordably be stored shoots up. This is the fundamental shift that has driven the arrival of "Big Data". More and more data can be gathered by an increasing range of connected devices and sensors, and instead of being thrown away, it can be retained. We are building a massive haystack of unstructured data. We're going to discuss HOW that is being done, and the Storage panel will reveal WHY.
Moderator: William Gerhardt, Cisco
Bhavik Vyas, Aspera
Scott Metzger, Violin Memory
John Wade, Bear Data Solutions
Stefaan Vervaet, Amplidata
Panel: The Importance of Analytics
Storing Big Data is just half the battle. Once we amass this haystack of unstructured data, we face the new challenge of finding the needle inside it. The task of extracting ROI from the storage investment leans heavily on modern analytics and the application of cutting edge data science. And instead of planning ahead on what the data should reveal - and therefore what to store, we have reversed that order by storing everything, and deciding later what to find. But the old data-mining tools just aren't up to the task. New analytics solutions include open and proprietary tools that can slice the data over and over to reveal what is inside.
Moderator: Martin Körling, Ericsson
Asad Faizi, Exascale Analytics
Lars Hard, Expertmaker
Michael Crane, Guavus
Charles Barry, Juniper Networks
Rapid-Fire Demo Presentations
Young companies interested in presenting their big data innovations, services and solutions are welcome to register to be a rapid-fire presenter. These demo slots are 5-minutes and used to introduce new companies and their products, in the hopes of creating interest and follow-up from the Silicon Valley telecom and automotive community including the carriers, the manufacturers, and the investors who follow innovation in this segment.
Moderator: Rupam Shrivastava, ePlanet Capital
Networking with the startups
We encourage you to close this meeting by connecting with the companies and people who presented their new ideas and products during the rapid fire pitches.
