It shows that everyone wants to be an ‘AI start-up’ - but only when it suits them! 

So, how exactly do you build (and identify) an AI start-up

I always like to start off with a set of ground…

Streamline Your Data Science with Namara

We’ve written a lot about finding and preparing data lately. But that’s only the beginning when it comes to extracting value from it. When organizations begin flowing external data through their organization, the various issues associated with data sharing start causing problems. Some of these issues include:

  • Controlling permissions and data access, including sharing partial/filtered views or picture-in-picture data
  • Accurately tracking changes to data and monitoring how…

Technology optimization opportunities amidst Covid-19

This is about how can automation teams leverage this current situation or treat this situation as ray of light for direction.

While this is certainly a tough time for the global and various industries, I believe that we can take benefit out of this different operating model. Business teams can work with their technology and automation teams to leverage this situation and create an optimized team / model for future.

  1. Up-skill and re-skill our…

Common errors during large RPA implementations and how to avoid

Many business process management organizations have deployed and even are working to deploy RPA (Robotics Process Automation) solutions. While a simple business workflow, which includes accessing web portals to be opened along with few decision rules and copying/pasting data, is quite easier and beneficial to automate, majority of teams start experiencing their challenges when the process workflows become fragmented and complex.

Below is the link to a whitepaper which talks about…

You're a Data Artist, not a Data Scientist

"Data Scientist" is 2020's equivalent of the rocket scientist of the 1950's: mysterious, sexy, and well-paid. But are you actually a "scientist"? While “data science” isn't fully defined yet as an academic subject (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 2018), more and more evidence seems to point to it being more of an art, rather than a science. …

Automating SQL Queries to Push Information to Business

Most of us working in business intelligence and data science spend a lot of time creating data models, reports and beautiful dashboards. Even though the models are great and reports look fancy, the true value is in your customers actively using it. How often do you find that nobody is actually running the report?

This hurts, but it also makes sense. People get so much information during a day, they really need to be selective. So any important information should pop out of your report…
