"Big Data Era is Collaboration Era",
said Ir. Beno Kunto Pradekso, M.Sc, CEO of Solusi247 and Labs247 who came as a keynote speaker at a Joint Conference in Faculty of Computer Science Brawijaya University 2018 (11/Nov/2018). He delivered, currently at 4.0 industrial revolution era, the roles of big data is very important because diverse decisions which will be taken in vary areas will be based on big data analysis result whose numbers are large and varied or commonly known as big data. For example in manufacture industry, big data analysis result will capable of becoming a basis on improvement of management system and production efficiency which then leads to profit improvement in the future.

Nevertheless, until current, communities, business actors even the government in Indonesia not really care yet about the importance of big data using. A constraint to use big data is big cost needs. This is due big data needs specific hardware and software which when purchased from a licensed company like IBM, Oracle or Dell, the price reaches the fantastic value. Therefore, Ir. Beno suggested the use of open source to suppress the use of software, hardware, storage and consulting. Meanwhile funds can be transferred to investment in development of human resource capabilities. Of which currently important position as responsible engineer on Big Data in Indonesian companies mostly are foreigners. Hopefully, by this method then domestic human resource can be lifted.

Open Source which can be used for big data processing are such as JBoss for middleware, Linux for operating system, MySQL, POstgrs and Hadoop for data management. By using open source and human resources' skill development, PT. 247 follows diverse national and international conference, as well as establish an association of data scientist as a place to exchange knowledge. When the software has established and people are familiar with the software, then what is needed is implementation in real case.

Therefore, PT. 247 starts to cooperate with partners who need the artificial technology, such as Pelita Harapan Hospital. Sometimes in order to introduce the importance of Big Data, PT. 247 also provides an free assistance in big data solution. In essence Information Technology (IT) Development in Indonesia not carried out alone by several parties. Collaboration of different elements is necessary including the government, companies as well as educational world to be able to create an advanced Indonesia in IT world. "We need to do it together. We need to collaborate more," said Ir. Beno.
