Jaap-thumbnail.jpgTectonic shifts in computer memory, storage, processing and networking are driving ‘big data’ to get ever bigger, and at a faster speed than anticipated – a trend that’s adding urgency to the enormous technical challenge of taking advantage of this coming ‘data deluge.’


In a presentation at HP Discover 2013 in Las Vegas on June 12th, Jaap Suermondt will showcase how HP Labs’ analytics research is positioning HP to help customers exploit this deluge by integrating data sources, transforming and automating business processes, and acting on relevant insights—all at unprecedented scale.


“I’ll be examining emerging trends, opportunities, and challenges in big data and analytics - sharing our vision for future analytics systems and technologies – as well as looking at applications and visualization – getting at the ‘so what’ question.” says Suermondt, Vice President and Director of HP’s Analytics Lab. 


In addition, Suermondt will assess where we stand on the path to true situational awareness and an ‘Internet of things.’


“As hardware innovations like the universal memory and super-fast photonic connections currently being developed at HP Labs become pervasive, we’re likely to see fundamental changes in applications and how we program them,” he believes. “That will impact analytics in exciting new ways – changing where we get data from, where it lives and what we can do with it.”


As VP of Analytics, Suermondt is responsible for HP’s research investments in analytics systems, technologies, and infrastructure as well as applications and visualization. Previously, he was Director of the Services and Solutions Research Lab and Director of Healthcare Research, and before that he was Director of the Business Optimization Lab at HP Labs.


 Discover attendees can hear Suermondt speak on Wednesday, June 12th, 1:30 – 2:30 pm, in the Breakout room.
