Identifying leading academic contacts for ICCA
XomniaCasesIdentifying leading academic contacts for ICCA
"Big Data projects are always challenging: you need to decide how to define the exact scope, how to measure the results, how to ultimately make it work in a user-friendly way among many other things. Xomnia proved to be a very approachable and knowledgeable partner, was not afraid to take risks, and was willing to continue to learn themselves as well! Thanks to Xomnia, ICCA now delivers an improved service to its members, and we have a few more projects in the pipeline...." Marco van Itterzon, Director Research at ICCA."
When preparing a successful bid to host the next edition of an association’s international meeting, it is crucial that you involve local association representatives. The challenge for ICCA was: how can we help our members to identify leading academic contacts in specified cities and regions, related to a specific meeting in the ICCA Association Database or a specific meeting subject? Big Data came to the rescue in the shape of Xomnia!
The end result, ICCA’s Big Data Explorer, increases the value of membership for their members by presenting a new way of applying Big Data search techniques to the international association meetings market. It is an important step for ICCA in harnessing the power of Big Data and combining it with our own unique data on associations and their meetings. In order to search through the Big Data set of conferences, papers, authors, affiliations and, taxonomies. Xomnia utilized the power of the (Google) Cloud. For example, with Big Data tools such as BigQuery and Kubernetes, the data can be searched in a (near) real-time and scalable manner.
