Red Hat has strong links for a number of academic institutions around the world. However, certainly within JBoss our strongest links are with Newcastle University, where we work closely with the students, teaching staff and researchers. It's no surprise that many of the JBoss team in our local office have come from there. Therefore, I'm very pleased to hear that the University has received one of only a handful of Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT). We've worked closely with the University on their proposal, which is around Big Data and Analytics, combining the practical elements of a traditional Computer Science PhD with the more theoretical/formal methods from statistical analysis. Congratulations to all of those involved in putting together the submission and getting it approved. And I look forward to the research that is done over the next years and working closely with the University team.
