Good day folks,
I'm conducting a data analytics project for a small supermarket and the IT guy sent me a file (.db0 extension) of their transaction details, but I'm unable to read it. Apparently it comes from the IBM 4690 Supermarket Application controller. I've done internet searches and nothing helpful comes up. The guy that sent it to me said he has never had to convert or read it into CSV or any other file format, so he can't provide any assistance. Can anyone help?…Continue

Debugging Hadoop jobs can be a huge pain. The cycle time is slow, and error messages are often uninformative --- especially if you're using Hadoop streaming, or working on EMR.
I once found myself trying to debug a job that took a full six hours to fail. It took more than a week -- a whole week! -- to find and fix the problem. Of course, I was doing other things at the same time, but the need to constantly check up on the status of the job was a huge drain on my energy and…

I am not an expert in database design, since most of my career I have worked with alternate data storage / data access solutions. But one of the very first projects I had to do back in 1985 when I was a student was to write the code for a fully functional database architecture, in Pascal, from scratch. You will probably find some of my questions naive, and some intriguing.…Continue

Excitement around Big Data has significantly increased the demand for data scientists. This hot position has been hailed as the "Sexiest Job of the 21st Century" by the Harvard Business Review.
When we started in the advanced analytics space we didn't use the term 'data scientist.' We were more focused on solving problems than defining a job description. Our initial teams have evolved and adapted to challenges through hands-on experience to find…Continue
