Nagui Halim
IBM Fellow and Director, Chief Architect Big Data, IBM

Dr. Nagui Halim’s technical vision and leadership launched the era of stream computing at IBM. In response to a client request in 2003 to create a new architecture for high-speed adaptive stream processing and analytics, Nagui recruited and assumed leadership of a large interdisciplinary research team, working in close and novel collaboration with the client, to undertake this formidable project to develop a new type of computing system able to manage and analyze massive volumes of continuous streams of data, which became known as System S. As the technical lead on System S, Nagui developed the foundational concepts and designed the architecture for this new computing system.
