NATIONAL CENTER IN BIG DATA AND CLOUD COMPUTING (NCBC)

About Us

Our Focus

Our focus is to effectively utilize cloud computing for Big Data applications for solution to problems of national importance. With support of cloud computing resource limited resource devices can perform heavy data services to store, edit, generate, process and communicate media files such as audio, video, images, graphics and so on, even without large storage and computation power. Therefore, keeping in view the advantages of cloud computing in provisioning and processing of big data and its suitability for the emerging trend in mobile devices and Pakistani R&D environment having limited hardware resources, the utility of the cloud computing is plausible. In the proposed Lab, our focus is on the following key sub-domains(modules), which are R&D problems of National importance.

Vision

"People First: Developing social and human capital" has been identified as very first of the seven Pillars of the Vision 2025. In order to enhance collective competitiveness in the longer run and channelize and streamline energies and potential of Pakistani youth. One of the most important pillars is to create Knowledge Economy through higher education and research.
