In this section you will find EURA NOVA’s latest news and activities.
The Chief Data officer Summit was held in San Francisco on May 22nd & 23rd 2014. EURA NOVA‘s attendance purpose was to assess companies’ current Big Data challenges and to define an efficient positioning strategy in this highly competitive market. The following article depicts companies’ current expectations regarding Big Data, the approach they adopted and the challenges they face.
EURA NOVA recently tested the usually praised Tesla cars (The Model S P85 in our case). While we were impressed by the engineering work behind such a vehicle, some of its aspects convinced us that the near 100k € price point can’t be justified, in particular on the Belgian market with its volatile fiscal rules. Flashback on a very fun testing session!
Event Based Marketing (EBM) that frequently is also referred to as Event Driven Marketing (EDM) or Trigger Based Marketing, is the discipline within marketing where commercial and communication activities are based upon these relevant and identified changes in a customer’s individual needs. It tends to identify key events in the customer’s life-cycle and trigger the most appropriate actions at the right time.
In our previous articles « why language choice doesn’t matter for your development project » and « why language choice does matter for your development project », we have taken absurdly strong positions in favor and against the selection of a specific development language for a given project.
This post points out the reasons that make choosing a language for a specific project relevant. Of course, you can find online articles that explain “Why language choice does not matter for your development project”. In the end, the choice is yours!

You got it, in this blog we are talking about CEP and Event Stream Processing (ESP). In recent years, we have seen a lot of interest in “context-aware” applications or, if you prefer, detecting in real-time interesting contexts. But, if you look at tech blogs or even at IT vendors you can sometimes see ESP, CEP or pattern matching engines for this kind of applications. So what? If I need to be able to react in Real-time to interesting situations (business wise) by processing Streams of Events which one should I use? Are they the same? If I do complex things when I process my event stream do I really do Complex Event Processing? Then, does it mean that I need a CEP ?” These are really interesting questions that I will try to answer in this post.
The GPU Technology Conference is one of those events where cutting-edge technology meets industrial players who are either see an opportunity to invest in the future trends or are able to match actual problems with the new abilities enabled by the technology. It is the place where the recent developments in the domain of GPU computing get presented, along with a showcase of all the challenges that the GPU technology has resolved so far. For a company such as EURA NOVA, this is the place where existing solutions meets new challenges that require innovation.
Data reuse in health care is a vast topic, one problematic being the anonymization of the data themselves. This is such a complex problem that it’s usually the one in the spotlights, but it is useful sometimes to remind ourselves why working out the data is needed. Let us imagine briefly that we have solved the matter and reflect only on the opportunities and solutions Big Data technologies bring.
This month EURA NOVA has presented the paper “A Distributed Data Mining Framework Accelerated with Graphics Processing Units” at the 2013 CloudCom-ASIA conference in Fuzhou, China. This is the third time that EURA NOVA has published a paper in this conference which is now considered one of the three most important IEEE event covering the topic of Cloud Computing.
With the holiday season approaching, brands are releasing the product that they want us to buy to our relatives (or to ourselves).
Last week Cyrille & François have had the chance to attend the “TechCrunch Disrupt Europe 2013” event in Berlin. This event main topic was the booming new technological and venture opportunities that are materializing for european startups. EURA NOVA’s objectives were to take a look at the “big European picture” and exchange knowledge with brilliant entrepreneurs from all around the world.
Cyrille & François came back boosted by a lot of inspiring stories summarized in this discussion. Enjoy!
Before letting Microsoft build their own Lumia and Asha devices, Nokia still had to release their latest products:
These past years the Graphics Processing Units have gained popularity and momentum in industrial research thanks to the parallel processing power (# of parallel core) that these offers for a reasonable price. The second reason behind this is their wide hardware availability in the consumer landscape: the sheer price cost of a GPU has favored their presence in most of the consumer devices nowadays, from mobile phones & tablets to video game systems.
IS THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS TOTALLY HUMAN CENTRIC?
Today, we see a lot of young developers and designers that grew up with technologies, new social habits and a lot of new tools that did not exist for the previous generation (actually, a generation is no more than 10 years today!).
As a consequence, entrepreneurs in their early 20’s are creating and innovating using technical stacks they have known their whole life, unaware of the details of a CPU, who Turing was and what a methodology can bring to a development project. They just create and diffuse their ideas!
… and people consume their products, get new habits and change their way of viewing/judging things.
This week I was the second IEEE Big Data conference at Santa Clara for presenting our paper “A distributed approach for graph-oriented multidimensional analysis”.
This is now a tradition, I cannot attend a conference without giving you a short summary of the trends and interesting topics of the conference.
In this blog post we briefly describe our new contribution to the big data domain, especially, graphDB benchmarking. This work was accepted for publication at 2013 ASE/IEEE International Conference on Big Data.
In this work, we presented a distributed graph database benchmarking framework. We used this tool to analyze the performance of four graph databases: Neo4j 1.9M05 , Titan 0.3, OrientDB 1.3 and DEX 4.7.
First let’s take a sneak peek at the smartphone market:
And then it’s over, 3 days at the 1st OpenNebula Conference! I took part in 18 talks, put my hands into OpenNebula core, met a lot of interesting people, enjoyed a really nice German dinner in the capital and filled my brain with tons of information and inspiration.
