"In fact men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth - often more so, since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it, but truth is a point of view, and so is changeable."
On the 1st of July, I decided to set up a professional group on LinkedIn in order to create a hype free… Continue

Most of us would probably like to work in a profession recognised for its legality, decency and honesty. At least I hope so. In my line of work, what we have right now is palpable evidence that the IT industry lacks a reliable moral compass.
Imagine this. A major sensationalist tabloid pulls together a team of diverse journalists who are set to work on… Continue

What we’ve been told
We’ve been told that Big Data is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and that its major characteristics are massive volumes (so great are they that mainstream relational products and technologies such as Oracle, DB2 and Teradata just can’t hack it), high variety (not only structured data, but also the whole range of digital data), and high…

In my previous blog on the Hopscotch and Robots simulation environment, I discussed the use of structural data extracted from hypothetical and real-life organizational events.

Somebody once mentioned to me that there is a need for a standard method of performance evaluation that can be applied to all employees regardless of their exact duties: e.g. to compare a janitor to an accountant. In my jurisdiction, there is a regulatory requirement for "equal pay for work of equal value" that can affect companies with government contracts. I consider the concept of "equal value" complicated due to its subjective nature. Certainly two people handling exactly the same work… Continue

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… Continue

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.

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… Continue

Understanding how data converts from data to information to intelligence can be seen in the flow across the databases in an enterprise. What is a data warehouse? How do we get Business Intelligence? In this video I explain the high level view of how large corporations like Dell evolve their data to the front-end BI applications.

A NoSQL database from MarkLogic provides the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) with the ability to unlock a treasure trove of assets. Now the RSC can publish three times as many journals and four times as many articles. It also gave the Society the ability to develop new educational applications to make chemistry accessible to a wider audience.
Modern approaches to information products replete with full text search have the power to transform your business. Built on an enterprise… Continue
