Levelling mountains, the democratisation of data

DSF Meetup with KNIME – Rob Blanford

Rob will share his experiences with working with KNIME as a consultant. His talk will address first how KNIME can help large organizations in connecting different kinds of data experts. Furthermore Rob will show a KNIME workflow from an on-going client case study about social media analysis. Finally he will show a prototype of how KNIME can integrate with other software libraries.
