Continuing along the path of Data Science

You like working with data. You’ve completed a few data science courses and enjoyed them. Now what?

I second Don VanDemark’s enthusiasm for course sequences, specialization tracks, and certification offerings. Whether through traditional brick-and-mortar schools, on-line offerings, or bootcamps, the carefully-planned curricula and (depending on the program) personal…

Those servers run applications, websites and other software, which all generate data. only a small amount of people have access to it. Now let me try to explain in simple word…

Addition of Different Dimensions to Data

I was often the lone wolf among my peers in university because I supported a prominent place in society for corporations and an important social role for capital. I questioned whether the directors and executives of companies entered into boardrooms really intending to “oppress” people such as minorities and people with disabilities. Did they deliberately make bathrooms inaccessible to people in wheelchairs perhaps to advance their preconceptions of who gets to go to the bathroom, I pondered…

Strategic Placement for Big Data in Organizations

I tend to examine the different roles played by data. For instance, when I work on computer code, I often ask myself what the presence of data is meant to accomplish. Sometimes the analysis is not at all straightforward or simple. In society and organizations, people exist and persist in the records as data. The data survives even as employees come and go. I therefore consider it important to regard the data and its environment as a system in itself, something that has a life all of its own.…

Building a house and building a data-analytic model

If I want to build a house, wouldn't it be wise to learn carpentry? Does the analogy hold for data-analytic multivariate models? Or is it simply enough to let a machine do it, with no knowledge by the machine operator of how to interpret the results from those modeling efforts? Or is it true, as one person has recently asserted, that he could replicate ALL statistical procedures and techniques using MapReduce, without knowing anything about statistics and probability, or the vast collection…

The Algorithmic Man - Epic Battle Against Headless Apparitions

There was a television interview of a man who had to deal with severe breathing problems through much of his adult life.  He underwent various procedures although he found little relief.  In fact, the adverse impact to his body was long-lasting.  So he was surprised to discover how he was extremely allergic to his breakfast cereal, something that he ate almost without fail.  When he stopped eating the cereal, his breathing problems disappeared.  I am sure that many people would regard the…

Oil and Gas Solution built on Data-Tactics’ Big Data Engine

The Big Data Yawn

Over the past couple of months we have met with a number of oil and gas executives to demonstrate our Oil and Gas Solution built on Data-Tactics’ Big Data Engine (BDE). During these conversations it has become obvious that the very mention of "Big Data" produces an involuntary physiological response among business leaders - eye rolls and yawns. It appears that big data has reached the Gartner "trough of disillusionment". These executives have heard from a bewildering…

Three Myths About Today’s In-Memory Databases

In-memory database technology is fashionable in recent years as the price of RAM drops substantially and gigabyte chips become affordable. By taking advantage of the cost-performance value of RAM, leading edge database developers are boosting the performance of next-generation databases with in-memory technology. However, many developers who intend to adopt in-memory technology only think of speed in terms of RAM, and do not exploit the true power of in-memory technology.

The…

Data Interaction in Organizational Systems

I have always had a great interest in how businesses organize in order to get things done.  Here I raise some discussion points intended to stimulate debate.

Principle of Systemic Domains 

Not that long ago, I was completing a graduate degree in “critical” disability studies.  The critical part deserves to be in quotations since it is probably subject to interpretation and all sorts of misinterpretation.  I am going to suggest that in critical…

Big Data Logistics: data transfer using Apache Sqoop from RDBMS

Apache Sqoop is a connectivity tool to perform data transfer between Hadoop and traditional databases (RDBMS) which contains structured data. Using sqoop, one can import data to Hadoop Distributed File System from RDBMS likeOracle, Teradata, MySQL, etc… and also export the data from Hadoop to any RDBMS in form of CSV file or direct export to databases.

There is a possibility of writing mapreduce programs that would use jdbc connectors…

Is Your Customer Data For Your Customers Benefit?

We are all increasingly active in the digital space. 70%+ of people in the EU, and growing, use the Internet*, all contributing towards more data generation. But public misperceptions and perspectives on data and how it’s used for marketing, threaten to limit data’s potential curtailing marketers’ abilities to provide personalised services. Careful data usage greatly enhances our lives. Unfortunately, fear or irresponsible use (a thankfully rare occurrence), along with some sensationalist…

Big data: the door to co-operation and communication in telecommunications

Responsiveness and clarity, perhaps more than in any other industry are crucial to Telecommunications.

Challenged by the advancing communications demands of a ‘smartphone generation’ over the last few years, the role of communications service providers (CSP’s) and the data they offer is increasingly valuable, owing to the sheer quantity and quality of the unstructured data they produce.

Think about it. From mobile network to Internet providers and more, CSP’s are uniquely…
