Finally, it was time to head back home. Thanks Marieke Crabbe (@MariekeCrabbe) for the great conversations, and Dr. Patrick Glenisson for great conversations too as well as for being a great host.

Usually, I am quite skeptical of panel discussions, but this one was a notable exception. E.g. PSG talked about their connected car project.

During the panel, several polls were held. Below, you see the result of one of them.

Next up was the coffee break. Business & Decision picked a very nice venue for this event.

Next, I attended a great IBM talk by Jacques Milman (@milmanj, @IBMBigDataFr, see picture below). He provided a detailed discussion of nice use #BigData use cases (see slide below - in French). I also liked his example of a pharmaceutical company predicting stockouts of competitor products.

Next, I attended the Oracle talk (@Oracle_France, see picture below). They proudly talked about the Oracle Airbus Big Data project to analyze A320neo in-flight data. Moreover, they gave a nice example of analyzing the usage of school iPads, and relating that to pupil/student performance.

Next, I attended the talk by Cloudera.

Next up was a nice reception with great food.
