NIST Big Data Public Working Group
December 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
From the NIST project description: “NIST is leading the development of a Big Data Technology Roadmap. This roadmap will define and prioritize requirements for interoperability, portability, reusability, and extendibility for big data analytic techniques and technology infrastructure in order to support secure and effective adoption of Big Data. To help develop the ideas in the Big Data Technology Roadmap, NIST is creating the Public Working Group for Big Data.”
Krypton Brothers co-founder Mark Underwood is co-chair (with Arnab Roy of Fujitsu) of the Security and Privacy subgroup of this public working group.
The scope statement from NIST follows:
The focus of the NBD-PWG is to form a community of interest from industry, academia, and government, with the goal of developing a consensus definitions, taxonomies, secure reference architectures, and technology roadmap. The aim is to create vendor-neutral, technology and infrastructure agnostic deliverables to enable Big Data stakeholders to pick-and-choose best analytics tools for their processing and visualization requirements on the most suitable computing platforms and clusters while allowing value-added from Big Data service providers and flow of data between the stakeholders in a cohesive and secure manner.
