Analyse TB data using network analysis
In a very interesting publication from Jose A. Dianes on tuberculosis (TB) cases per country it was shown that dimension reduction is achieved using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Cluster Analysis (…Continue
As the size of the database grows database performance becomes critical. Automation is a growing focus for data center operators facing increasingly complex environments. Database administration is complex, repetitive and time consuming. DBAs have to work long hours during off hours downtime. The outage of database costs heavily to the companies and affect their repute.
Shopping engines and online shopping places are highly dependent on database performance. Slower application…Continue
