I-BiDaaS aims to empower users to easily utilize and interact with big data technologies, by designing, building, and demonstrating, a unified solution that: significantly increases the speed of data analysis while coping with the rate of data asset growth, and facilitates cross-domain data-flow towards a thriving data-driven EU economy. I-BiDaaS will achieve its goals following a methodical approach. As a first step, it has guaranteed access to real-world industry big data. I-BiDaaS will proceed with breaking intrer- and intra-sectorial data-silos, and support data sharing, exchange, and interoperability. Having done so, it will support methodical big data experimentation by putting in place a safe data processing environment. To foster experimentation, I-BiDaaS will develop data processing tools and techniques applicable in real-world settings. I-BiDaaS will be tangibly validated by three real-world, industry-lead experiments, in the domains of banking, manufacturing, and telecommunications. The I-BiDaaS solution will help increase the efficiency and competitiveness of EU companies.
