GridGain Publishes Full Conference Schedule for Ignite Summit
FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GridGain® Systems, provider of enterprise-grade in-memory computing solutions powered by the Apache® Ignite® distributed database, today published the full conference schedule for the first Ignite Summit, a virtual event taking place on May 25, 2021. Speakers from industry-leading companies including finance, biotech, health & fitness, construction, cloud computing and more will discuss how Apache Ignite delivers the performance and scale required to address the world’s most challenging computational and hybrid transactional/analytical processing requirements. This global conference will feature a variety of live sessions throughout the day to align with workday schedules in the EMEA, APAC and the Americas time zones.
“The adoption of Apache Ignite continues to soar, which means we have an ever-growing number of powerful use cases across diverse industries,” said Denis Magda, Apache Ignite PMC and GridGain VP of Developer Relations. “Bioinformatics companies are using Ignite to discover new drugs and treatments, including for COVID-19. Financial services companies and banks perform risk analyses and make portfolio management decisions in real-time. Cloud vendors use Ignite to make their services more secure and elastic at global scale. Transportation and logistics companies prepare and update logistics and movement plans in real-time. And telco companies upgrading to 5G infrastructure are using Ignite as a backbone of their technology stack. These examples are an important indicator of just how far Ignite has reached into the core of critical infrastructure around the world, and the Ignite Summit is the perfect opportunity to take a deep dive into some of these use cases.”
“Digitizatin has created the opportunity to solve complex medical problems and improve the lives of people on a global scale -- if we can find a way to efficiently process all the data being generated,” said Rohit Jain, Engineering Lead, Molecular Analytics at biomedical knowledge company nference, who will be speaking at the conference. “nference is pushing the limits of data analysis by creating a discordance of insights computed from differentiated knowledge bases at scale, allowing scientists and physicians to quickly answer questions that involve statistical computation involving hundreds of gigabytes of numerical data. Apache Ignite enables us to do this by providing a horizontally scalable framework that allows us to define different statistical analyses and execute them on terabytes of numerical data in real time, without movement of data.”
