West Midlands Open Data Forum 2013 – Part of Global Data Week:
Big Data is a hot topic, join us on the 25th April, where we will be hosting the West Midlands Open Data Forum 2013 at Birmingham City University @ Millennium Point, as part of Global Big Data Week.
This exciting and pioneering Forum will be held once every 3 months to update the Birmingham business, developer and user group communities with progress of Birmingham’s very first Pilot Open Data Platform. The Birmingham Open Data Community (BODC) pilot project has full backing of the Birmingham City Council, Digital Birmingham, Birmingham City University, The BIP, SAP, Enterprise Europe Network, Coventry University, TIFWM, Birmingham Science Park and other key stakeholders in the West Midlands.
This particular event will consist of talks on an introduction to Smarter Cities, a range of Big Data user case studies such as crime prevention, the public transport system and opportunities for SMEs both from a user/developer perspective. As well as capturing the requirements from all the stakeholders to develop a Open Data Platform/Portal and a physical incubator to support these activities, group and panel discussions will showcase lessons learnt from other cities and capitols who have embarked on a similar journey.
As part of Big Data Week this event will be streamed to a global community of Big Data enthusiasts ranging from Novice to Expert so far there are over 25 cities+ 10,000+ participants involved globally http://bigdataweek.com/
We are leading the UK movement to connect our event with other global Big Data events happening on the day so far we have London, Leeds, Brighton, Budapest and Chicago on board, we will be confirming more shortly.
