Roskilde Festival in Denmark is the largest North European culture and music festival. Run since 1971 by a non-profit, non-political society that supports humanitarian and cultural work, the ten-day festival hosts some of the biggest names in music and attracts 130,000 visitors annually.
How do you keep 130,000 guests safely entertained, fed, watered and informed in a sustainable way? Roskilde Festival knew that the critical insights lay hidden in huge volumes of real-time data.
Copenhagen Business School works with IBM Analytics, Cloud Data Services and Smarter Cities teams to provide cloud-based data analysis and prediction to help festival managers make smarter decisions.
Enables vital insight into where people go and what they buy, driving smarter optimization in crowd safety and service provision. Extreme scalability enables deeper analysis of near-real-time data.
