CWI Researchers Awarded 4.5M Euro for H2020 Project: TYPHON

September 11, 2017

Tijs van der Storm and Jurgen Vinju of CWI’s Software Analysis and Transformation (SWAT) are part of a consortium that has been awarded European Commission Horizon 2020 research funding, within the theme Big data PPP: research addressing main technology challenges of the data economy. The funding, 4.5M euro, is for the project “Polyglot and Hybrid Persistence Architectures for Big Data Analytics” (TYPHON).

The aim of TYPHON is to provide a methodology, and integrated technical offering, for designing, developing, querying, and evolving scalable architectures for persistence, analytics and monitoring of large volumes of hybrid (relational, graph-based, document-based, natural language etc.) data. This will allow organisations to address the increasing need to balance data consistency and availability concerns across heterogeneous types of storage solutions.

TYPHON brings together research partners with expertise in software modelling, domain-specific languages, text mining, and data migration, and industry partners, Volkswagen and Alpha Bank. CWI SWAT’s specific role will involve designing and implementing a query language for hybrid polystore querying.
