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.

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…

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…

Lenders, know thy customer

Consumer complaints about financial institutions are never all that surprising. When it comes to money—purchasing, saving and borrowing—many people are sensitive, protective, and cautious, especially in tough economic times.

Not just analyze the log, mine it.

Much more devices held, much more messages sent, much more data up in the air.

Upon the arrival of IOT (Internet of Things) era, number of connected devices grows rapidly, the signals of which stack up mines containing valuable, hidden insights.

We used to analyze log files for risk management, spotting the anomalies and exceptions based on outlined records. Via the ever-richer meta data and context, we are entitled to weave more story from the strings now. By union or…

Searching for Intangibles - Data Embodiment Using Protocols

I often find myself following missing-persons cases. I am interested in the reasoning behind the use of resources. There can be major deployments of capital during investigations. I tend to wonder which scenarios trigger more spending than others. I also recognize the visceral side of missing-persons cases. There are publicly accessible databases of missing persons in Canada, the United States, and I am certain many other countries. I imagine that it can be difficult to regard such…
