Mammoth BI is proud to have Internet Solutions (IS) as a sponsor for its first Big Data and Business Intelligence Conference taking place on 17 and 18 November 2014 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
Internet Solutions, a division of Dimension Data was founded in 1993 and has since continued to be the leading ISP provider for business focusing on how the Internet can be applied in a business setting. Internet Solutions (IS) is a Pan-African telecoms service provider to public and private sector organisations that have, or want to establish a presence on the African continent. Internet Solutions boasts most of South Africa’s large organisations as its clients, along with many smaller ISPs who offer consumer connectivity solutions.
Mammoth is first and foremost about building community and driving out our passion of personal mastery with the aim of the event being accessible to everybody in the business, technology and education community. Similarly Internet Solutions has always maintained its ethos of enabling organisations to operate more effectively and, overall, making a society a better place. It has done so through staying ahead of technology curves in terms of its own network backbone but also by recruiting the best and most adventurous minds in the business.
IS believes the Internet is the most streamlined and fastest way to close the gap between underdeveloped and developed markets, and is focusing on moving South Africa and Africa affordably to the future of the Internet: cloud computing, mobility, and, eventually, the everywhere network.
IS will be hosting a hands-on Big Data workshop in conjunction with Saratoga on 18 November 2014 at the CTICC. A full day event, the workshop offers business intelligence developers, analytics specialists and anyone else with an interest to learn more about big data technologies with a hands on masterclass in Hadoop, R and Tableau. The workshop will guide attendees through a mix of instructor led and hands on classes from building a Hadoop cluster and loading data to identifying insights and showcasing these in a tableau dashboard. At the end of the workshop attendees will have access to the Hadoop cluster for a week to further explore and play with what they have learned. Book your place here.
