Today, Singapore is an Asian hub for computing infrastructure and a leader in Big Data development. So we're proud to announce in conjunction with Dell and Intel the launch of a new Big Data Innovation center located at the Dell Solution Center in Singapore. This facility provides Dell servers (based on Intel Xeon processors) and software (Revolution R Enterprise included) for customers and partners to test big-data applications and a state-of-the-art big data analytics platform for data science training. Tech in Asia reports that the center is "open to the public ... for various training classes and workshops that will help companies learn about using big data processes to better understand their data and draw useful conclusions and strategies from it".
Revolution Analytics' Asia-Pacific Managing Director, Laurence Liew, remarked that “the global market for big data analytics is growing at a rapid pace, and businesses in Singapore are uniquely suited to capitalize on this trend. The launch of the Big Data Innovation Center is in line with the Singapore government’s focus on big data and predictive analytics, and we are pleased to partner with Dell and Intel and as our big data analytics training platform.
