A Brief History of Data Quality

The term “Data Quality” focuses primarily on the level of accuracy possessed by the data, but also includes other qualities such as accessibility and usefulness. Some data isn’t accurate at all, which, in turn, promotes bad decision-making. Some organizations promote fact checking and Data Governance, and, as a consequence, make decisions that give them an […]

In-Memory Database Architecture: An Overview

In-memory databases work faster than databases with disk storage. This is because they use “internal” optimization algorithms, which are simpler and faster, and this type of system requires fewer CPU instructions than a disk storage system. Additionally, accessing data that has been stored “in-memory” eliminates the need for seek time while searching for data. As […]

Kubernetes Fundamentals: Facilitating Cloud Deployment and Container Simplicity

Kubernetes (sometimes abbreviated to “kube”) is open-sourced, was originally developed by Google, and organizes containers into logical units for transport and use in the cloud. Containers support the construction of self-contained environments capable of transporting data, and the software supporting it. Containers are, ultimately, a way to package software and other application components. It is […]

So You Want to be a Cloud Engineer?

It has been predicted that “cloud engineer” will be among the top ten in-demand IT jobs in 2021. There is currently a great need for cloud engineers, primarily because a significant number of organizations are moving their business processes to the cloud. As more organizations shift to cloud data storage, the demand for cloud engineers […]

A Brief History of the Hadoop Ecosystem

In 2002, internet researchers just wanted a better search engine, and preferably one that was open-sourced. That was when Doug Cutting and Mike Cafarella decided to give them what they wanted, and they called their project “Nutch.” Hadoop was originally designed as part of the Nutch infrastructure, and was presented in the year 2005. The […]

Deep Learning Demystified

The “deep” in deep learning refers to the number of hidden layers involved in the design. Deep learning is a way of training artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize specific data, such as speech or faces, and to make predictions based on previous experiences. Unlike machine learning, which organizes and sends data through predefined algorithms, deep […]

So You Want to be a Data Manager?

A data manager develops and governs data-oriented systems designed to meet the needs of an organization or research team. Data Management includes accessing, validating, and storing data that is needed for research and day-to-day business operations. Currently, a wide array of organizations are using big data to gain insights into customer behavior and to provide […]

Making Business Decisions with Mathematical Optimization

Click to learn more about author Keith D. Foote. Mathematical optimization has become a problem-solving technology that can be used to automatically generate solutions to business problems. It helps in selecting the best business choices possible. One basic feature of mathematical optimization is the recognition that decisions, and their resulting actions, have far reaching implications […]
