GATE platform is a holistic platform, providing full set components and tools covering the whole Big Data Value Chain including data management, analysis and visualisation. It supports the research in GATE strategic application themes – Future Cities, Intelligent Government, Smart Industry and Digital Health.
The GATE platform integrates industrial Big Data strength frameworks (i.e., Oracle, IBM, SAP, Bosch) with open-source software (i.e., Hadoop, Kubernetes). Thus, it assures smooth symbiosis between the advanced state of the art hardware and software technologies without being dependent on either of them to avoid the vendor lock-in. This speeds up the process of employing Big Data and AI technologies in research, innovation and commercial projects.
The GATE platform is built on open standards to foster its openness and interoperability. It will be a gateway to other EU infrastructures such as FIWARE, EGI, BDVA i-Spaces and more importantly Swedish AI Data Factory initiative. The platform utilizes the most advanced national (Bulgarian and Swedish) HPC infrastructures. Open APIs and Open Data as a service is provided, enabling the creation and operation of GATE Ecosystem.
