Bigdata Analytics


CSE & IT Department organized DST Sponsored 10 day Training program on BIG DATA ANALYTICS from 27-04-2016 to 7 -05- 2016.

About the Programme

Big data Initiative division, Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India has selected Velammal Institute of Technology to conduct a 10 day training programme on Big data Analytics and has sponsored the programme.

Big Data is data whose scale, diversity, and complexity require new architecture, techniques, algorithms, and analytics to manage it and extract value and hidden knowledge from it. Some of the Science and Technology challenges that researchers across the globe and as well as in India are the issues related to data deluge pertaining to Astrophysics, Materials Science, Earth & atmospheric observations, Energy, Fundamental Science, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics & Medicine, Engineering & Technology, GIS and Remote Sensing, Cognitive science and Statistical data. These challenges require development of advanced algorithms, visualization techniques, data streaming methodologies and analytics. India now needs to build a sustainable analytics eco-system that brings in a strong partnership across the industry players, government, and academia. This programme enables the participants to gain knowledge and hands on experience in Bigdata Analytics.


The Training programme on Bigdata Analytics organized by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Information technology was to provide a platform for academicians, researchers, students and professionals from the industry. It was to elevate their research work and was also an exchange of ideas in the field of Computer science and Engineering and Information Technology.

The Training program was held on 27th April 2016 with the inaugural function graced by the chief guest Professor C.R. Rao, Dept of Computer Science, University of Hyderabad in the august presence of Shri K.Razak, Advisor, Velammal Institute of Technology ,Dr. T. Chandrashekar, Principal, Velammal Institute of Technology, Dr.S.Soundararajan, Vice Principal, Velammal Institute of Technology and Conveners Dr. R.Sugumar, Professor, Dept of Computer Science and Engineering, Dr B.Murugeshwari, Professor IT, Velammal Institute of Technology. The Inaugural function began with a prayer note. The Programme Convener, Dr. R.Sugumar Department of CSE heartily welcomed the Chief Guest, the Advisor, the Principal, the Vice Principal and the delegates in his inimitable style.

Professor K. Razak, honored the chief guest with the momento and welcomed the participants. He stated that technology is developing everyday and gave a small description on cloud computing and big data. He proudly said that Dept of Science and Technology has selected Velammal Institute of Technology to conduct this privileged 10 days training program

Dr. T.Chandrashekar, Principal, Velammal Institute of Technology gave a motivational speech on the need of learning bigdata. He also briefed about the gap between technology and learners and their need to be filled by the skill sets based on the fast growing trends in the industry.

The Chief Guest,Professor C.R. Rao, Department of Computer Science University of Hyderabad, addressed on the technical importance on data analysis related to the real world. He explained the concept of bigdata in steps starting from the collection of data its processing and using them in different techniques. He also related the concept with medical world treating different diseases by examining the disorders using Bigdata Analysis.

Finally, Dr. B.Murugeshwari Professor Department of Information Technology gave the vote of thanks. She extended her heartfelt thanks to the chief guest, other dignitaries and the audience for the day.
