Next week, we present our product and our vision at the Skolkovo-sponsored Startup Village in Russia. The Skolkovo Startup Village is one of the largest technological startup conferences in Russia. Over 3,000 participants are expected, including startup companies, venture capital funds and mentors, media representatives, government officials, entrepreneurs, and institutions. The conference is hosted by Skolkovo Innovation Centre and its partners.

The mission of the Startup Village is to bring together Russia’s startup community and grant access to investors, major companies, and subject-matter experts. With this in mind, we are looking forward to presenting, networking, and meeting open- and like-minded individuals that can share in the Talksum vision.

We will be showing our new approach to data management and our focus on speed, simplicity, and value – the three ingredients required to meet, and exceed, Big Data initiatives of today, and tomorrow. We will walk through the Talksum Data Stream Router and show how it ingests data; then transforms, filters, reduces, monitors, aggregates, enriches, analyzes, and routes to the data store.

Igor Bogachev, executive director of the Information Technologies (IT) Cluster, Skolkovo Foundation, put it this way, “The volume of data in corporate business grows by 30 to 40 percent every year according to different sources. The Big Data problem has been already in the room for some time. We in Skolkovo do not neglect this major trend and give special support to the startups working in this field. The goal is to build the Big Data co-innovation sub-cluster in Skolkovo with the companies like Talksum and other residents. I trust that Talksum is one of the companies that will change the future landscape of the IT industry.”

The Foundation is overseeing the creation of the Skolkovo Innovation Center composed of companies and start-ups, developing innovative technologies (currently numbering almost 1000), a Technopark, the Skolkovo Institute of Technology (Skoltech), a new graduate research University established in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Skolkovo city, located near Moscow. Together these entities will establish a vibrant eco-system of technology innovation and entrepreneurship.

A Recap of the Big Data Innovation Summit, London

Barry Strauss, Talksum Head of MarketingBarry Strauss, Head of Talksum Marketing

Last week, we had the pleasure of attending the Big Data Innovation Summit in London as an attendee, a presenter, a chairman, and an exhibitor! In addition, we announced our flagship product – the Talksum Data Stream Router. All in all, a great week!

First, I’d like to thank all of you who attended our presentation, “A New Approach to Data Management.” We are excited about the future of Big Data and the opportunity we had to share our vision with you, in particular our approach to data management and analytics, which focuses on speed, simplicity, and cost efficiency. Big Data initiatives need more than just new storage platforms and BI solutions. They need to be real time to keep pace with data demands, simple to avoid specialized skills and custom codes, and cost effective to maintain low overhead and offer greater value.

Those are the ingredients built into the Talksum Data Stream Router. For those who missed our presentation, we showed our solution in our booth and discussed various use cases, including those in service delivery, industrial and automotive sensors, financial tracking and analytics, healthcare HL7 compliance, and biogenetics research.

If you didn’t make it to the Summit and would like a copy of the presentation, fill out the Talksum Contact Us form and request the presentation in the “Nature of Interest” box.

At the Summit, it was also fun to listen and discuss innovation with other experts in the field, including those from CERN, Hortonworks, BT, Pfizer, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch, and many others.

We are already looking forward to the next Summit!
