OrientDB: Unlock the Value of Document Data Relationships. Apache Spark & GraphX

April 11, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

HUG Ireland is pleased to announce our April event at Bank of Ireland (@boistartups), Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2. The event is themed this time round on Graph Databases and Big Data with an exploration of OrientDB and a use case along with Apache Spark and GraphX. The full agenda is a follows:

OrientDB: Unlock the Value of Document Data Relationships by Fabrizio Fortino 

In this presentation Fabrizio will cover the following topics:

a) A general introduction of graph databases and OrientDB,

b) Why connected data has more value than just data,

c)How to “have fun” with OrientDB combining documents with graphs via SQL,

d) A use case on how OrientDB has helped to raise standards in Irish Public Office.

On OrientDB: NOSQL document databases provide an elegant way to deal with data in different shapes enabling developers to create better and faster products quickly. The main goal of these systems is to find the most efficient solution to manage data itself. With the Big Data Explosion we need to deal with a myriad of highly interconnected information. The challenge now is not only on how to store data but on how to manage, analyse, traverse and use your data within the context of relationships. Graph databases shine at maintaining highly connected data and is the fastest growing category in database management systems: 2014 registered an increase of 250% in terms of adoption and Forrester Research predicts that more than a quarter of enterprises will be using graphs by 2017. OrientDB combines more than one NOSQL model offering the unique flexibility of modelling data in the form of either documents, or graphs, while incorporating object oriented programming as a way of encapsulating relationships.

Fabrizio is an experienced programmer and OSS enthusiast with a quite heterogeneous set of interests including web development, machine learning algorithms, graph databases, Big Data. OrientDB contributor since 2011.

Introduction to Apache Spark GraphX by Eddie Baggot. 

Using GraphX to detect and visualises financial crime networks, using algorithms like PageRank and new features like GraphFrames.

In this presentation Eddie will cover:

1) Introduction to Apache Spark with GraphX

2) GraphX Visualisation for Financial Crime

3) DataScience Applications in Fighting Financial Crime Networks

4) GraphX and GraphFrames, New Tools for the job!

Eddie is a Senior Architect at BAE Systems specialising in products to detect financial crime.

The event hashtag is #HUGIreland and you can reserve your spot for the event by RSVP’ing today and join your Big Data peers for some light refreshments before and during the event! We also intend to do some further networking in the Ferryman pub afterwards and all are welcome to join us there also!
