Today, we live in a world that is getting increasingly interconnected. All sorts of gadgets: mobile phones, cars, fridges, ovens, washing machines, electric bulbs and even homes are wired to inter-connect and communicate with each other. This innovation is fast becoming a part of our daily lives. Interconnectivity leads to an increase in the size of the internet and the amount of data that is generated; offering an enormous opportunity for software developers and entrepreneurs to explore new ways of providing value for customers.
Oracle organised a free e-Seminar in collaboration with Mobile Web Ghana last Friday to help the our developer community get a grip on some of the innovative technologies available for getting started with big data and the Internet of Things.
Jernej Kase from Oracle delivered a remote presentation introducing participants to the following topics:
- Big Data & IoT business overview
