– Barcelona acted for the first time as the Big Data and data science world capital
– The European edition welcomed 40% more attendees than last year’s event in London
From November 19 to 21, Barcelona welcomed Strata + Hadoop World, an event of worldwide importance for the Big Data and Data Science sector that has three annual editions: two in the United States (San José and New York) and one in Europe. This year, for the first time, the European edition of the conference was held in the Catalan capital and received the worldwide community of experts, key speakers and specialists of the sector.
Over three intense days, a total of 1,200 people attended the event, 40% more than the previous year. The record numbers clearly demonstrate the growing interest in the management and analysis of enormous quantities of data.
Strata + Hadoop World is divided into six distinct tracks over the three days: Data Science / Business & Industry / Design / Hadoop & Beyond / IoT / Open Data. Carme Artigas, co-founding partner of Synergic Partners, participated as a speaker in the tutorial “Data-Driven Business Day” and in the Business track, with two different sessions in which she presented new challenges and possibilities related with big data from a business-driven perspective. In the first session, she spoke on “Big Data Architecture: the Buy and Build Dilemma,” and, in the second, on “How to Datafy Your Business.”
In addition to participating as a speaker, Synergic Partners was also an official sponsor of the event and had a corporate stand in the business pavilion, where they were able to receive any and all attendees of the conference.
The arrival of such an important event on big data and data science to Barcelona has been a great opportunity for Synergic Partners to reaffirm its position as a big data and data science consulting firm of reference in the Spanish market.
