Data Governance vs. Blockchain

Data Governance is the hot topic in today’s security- and privacy-concerned digital ecosystem. Blockchain technology offers data-centered security to sensitive, transactional systems that require tamper-resistant, fully auditable tracking mechanisms. Thus, blockchain and Data Governance (DG) complement each other in many ways, while maintaining distinct operational philosophies and application turfs. Blockchain is today’s preferred technology for […]

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 […]

IoT vs. Serverless Computing

The Internet of Things (IoT) describes an interconnected network of physical and digital devices, sensors, mechanical components, and communication protocols with the ability to transfer and exchange data machine-to-machine or machine-to-interactions. The serverless computing model is cloud-based and all its resources are managed by the service provider. The client is charged based on the consumption […]

Microservices are typically thought of as a software development technique which organizes an application as a group of loosely coupled services. It is, however, any kind of small service which interacts with […]

Scaling Machine Learning Applications

When the number of users for a predictive model grows, it is expected (albeit often wrongly) that the machine learning powered systems will automatically scale to keep up with this growth. If the system fails to scale, processing requirements may outpace performance. Using an example from a LinkedIn article, a sample recommender system fails to […]

Blockchain Use Cases

Blockchain, which is akin to a distributed and decentralized accounts ledger, can record and verify high volumes of digital transactions, irrespective of location. So, blockchain has the capacity to contribute to many industry sectors, besides finance. As a secure technology platform, blockchain’s main benefits are accuracy, protection against fraud, and easy sharing of information. The […]
