> Dear Sir or Madam,
> We are organizing a webinar, as part of the webinars at AIMS series (http://aims.fao.org/activity/blog/join-webinar-big-data-europe-platform-what-whom-and-how), to introduce the big-data platform (BDI) implemented by BDE to make big data simpler, cheaper and more flexible than ever before.
> We are sending this e-mail inviting you to participate, because we understand this webinar might be of your interest.
> BDE (http://www.big-data-europe.eu/) will provide support mechanisms for all the major aspects of a data value chain, in terms of the employed data and technology assets, the participating roles and the established or evolving processes.
> The effectiveness of the provided support mechanisms will be assessed in different domains pertaining to Europe’s major societal challenges with respect to the needs and requirements of the related communities.
> One of the core data challenges addressed by the project is food and agriculture, where FAO, as partner, has the role to engage the community, to understand data and technologies used and needed, and select use cases.
> At this proposal we are organizing this webinar, that is especially conceived for FAO staff and we welcome questions and suggestions on how such a platform can answer specific data problems that FAO projects encounter.
> BDI is an open Source platform based on Docker, today’s virtualization technique of choice. It can work on your local development machine, or on hundreds of nodes connected in a swarm.
> It has been proven to meet the different requirements of each one of Big Data Europe’s pilots that address the European Commission’s 7 Societal Challenges.
> The platform can be run in house, or can be hosted by vendors like Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure.
> The base Docker platform is enriched with a layer of supporting services, helping setup and maintenance.
> The webinar will be held from 11am to 12am Central European time (CET) on Monday 10th of April, to participate you should just send an email to :aims at fao.org.
> Please extend this invitation to anyone you think may be interested.
> Best Regards,
> Antonella Picarella
