This session will be organized by TF6 SG7. The goal of the session is to discuss and promote benchmarking (especially for Big Data platforms) with a focus on European stakeholders. The session will hence focus on:

  • Unveiling key requirements and results gathered over the last three years of Big Data benchmarking at a European scale.
  • Gathering future needs, trends and directions for benchmarking from a European perspective. Interactive presentations (powered by tools such as Mentimeter) will be combined with discussions in an open workshop-like atmosphere. We foresee the following structure (subject to

    • Introduction and BDVA reference model.
    • European benchmarking efforts and best practices (HOBBIT, DataBench, LDBC, etc.).
    • Application areas (societal challenges, IOT, smart cities, smart homes, etc.).
    • Future trends.
  • Key areas interaction will include the completion of existing models, current practical challenges faced by European stakeholders and current trends (especially in societal challenges). The objectives of the session include:
    • Present the current offering of TF6 SG7.
    • Monitor current development in benchmarking (especially in Europe).
    • Collect real needs from varied stakeholders pertaining to benchmarking that really matters for their systems.
    • Discover new avenues of research/use for benchmarking technologies.
