Deliverable 6.2 Project Web Portal and Dissemination Materials
At the heart of the DataBench project is the goal to design a benchmarking process helping European organizations developing Big Data Technologies to reach for excellence and constantly improve their performance, by measuring their technology development activity against parameters of high business relevance. DataBench will investigate existing Big Data
benchmarking tools and projects, identify the main gaps, provide a robust set of metrics to compare technical results coming from those tools. It will provide a framework to associate those technical results with the economic processes that are imperative to a company. It will provide a robust set of benchmarks to assess which tools respond best and provide the most
pertinent information for organisation’s economic planning and respond to their current and emerging industrial needs. It will provide a software tool which the industrial and research community users can leverage to do this evaluation.
DataBench will interact with the Big Data PPP ICT14 and 15 projects to give access to this tool and framework to leverage
the Big Data benchmarking investment so far carried out in the benchmarking community, contributing to the success of the BDV-PPP. The project envisions continuous interaction with the leading BDT suppliers and international industrial benchmarking user communities and has a strong relationship with the BDV cPPP.
This deliverable presents the initial output of the dissemination and communication activities of DataBench. This includes the development and management of the project web portal, and the production of a set of dissemination materials for online publication and distribution at events.
