    We’ve now been wrestling with Enterprise Big Data for a few years. Here’s a summary of our progress so far. There’s still a lot of technology to learn There’s a lot of new technology to master, and it’s changing fast. There are new in-memory platforms like SAP HANA and open source projects like Hadoop and Spark. There are new techniques such as graph databases, text analytics, spatial processing, machine learning, and many more. The good news is we’re now past the peak of the Hype Curve. In other words, people have had the chance to experiment and carry out pilots. They now…

    Are you a millennial? With millennials now making up the largest chunk of the workforce, there is a good chance that you might be. Just for your reference, people born between 1981 and 1992 are typically called the millennial generation. The generation that grew up with the internet and the digital revolution well underway. The one that is all about themselves. The one that refuses to move out of their parents’ basements. The one that is socially conscious and liberal in its attitudes. Most importantly, the one that will make up 75% of the workforce by 2030. This is a generation that was…

    We had spotted a stat on Women in leadership roles recently – we spotted this today: “In 2009, 9.5% startups had at least one woman founder, but by 2014 that rate had almost doubled to 18%. At the same time, the absolute number of companies (along with the total number of startups) with a female founder more than quadrupled from 117 in 2009 to 555 in 2014. Based on those numbers, it seems reasonable to conclude that there has been a steady increase in the number of women founders in the past five years.” Source For Interesting Statistics Everyday, Find Statspotting on…

Even if you can find a job that pays the rent, it helps if it’s a job you like. Based on these factors, Raleigh, N.C., came in at the top of the ranking. That’s no surprise.

    At the European Hadoop Summit in Brussels last week, SAP underlined its support for the fast-growing number of enterprise Hadoop deployments. In the opening keynote, Forrester analyst Mike Gualtieri advised attendees that Hadoop was clearly ready for certain use cases in the enterprise, and that “adoption is the only option.” Irfan Khan, CTO for SAP Global Customer Operations, opened his keynote by emphasizing SAP’s open-source credentials, including contributions to over 100 different projects.

    Even several years after its initial launch, I still find people who think SAP HANA is primarily a fast, expensive database — a “luxury” that they don’t need and can’t afford. But from the very start, HANA wasn’t about “speed” — it was about how rapidly-falling technical barriers would let us get much closer to the age-old vision of seamless, simplified management information systems. It’s already been six years since Hasso Plattner’s SIGMOD paper that pointed out that existing relational database systems had failed…

    This morning, I had one of those serendipity moments. As I was waiting at the bus stop to take my daughter to school, I noticed one of the other pupils was wearing a t-shirt with the classic cover of Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” album. The record came out in 1979, when I was about the same age as the girl wearing the t-shirt, and I remember having a huge poster-sized version on my wall at University. A quick Google search on my phone, and I quickly discovered that it wasn’t the random scribbles of a graphic artist that I had always assumed. In fact, it turns…

    The New York Times article “Learning to See Data ”  discusses novel ways of gleaning valuable insights from the deluge of data by presenting it visually. One of the ways involves working with an artist named Daniel Kohn. “Advanced computing produces waves of abstract digital data that in many cases defy interpretation; there’s no way to discern a meaningful pattern in any intuitive way. To extract some order from this chaos, analysts need to continually reimagine the ways in which they represent their data — which is where Mr. Kohn comes in. He spent 10 years working with…

    note: don't miss the link below to download a chapter of the BI Guidebook - From Data Integration to Analytics on Reed Elsivier's SciTech Connect blog. Data is everywhere in the enterprise, from large legacy systems to departmental databases and spread­sheets. No one controls all of it, it’s often duplicated erratically across systems, and the quality spans a wide range. You might say it spreads like kudzu, but despite the tendency for chaos, the bulk of data is the lifeblood of an enterprise. If it doesn’t smell like a rose – that is, if it’s not clean, current,…

    It might have started with the Frappuccino, the line of frozen coffee beverages sold by Starbucks. The term was coined as a combination of the words frappé (in Boston: a thick milkshake with ice cream) and cappuccino (in Italian: espresso coffee with frothed milk). While the 500+ calorie beverage was only introduced in 1995, it now represents $2B in revenue and more than 20% of Starbuck’s coffee sales. While I wasn’t a fan of the drink, I was amused by the name – since I’m a fan of words, I liked that it was a portmanteau. Before Starbucks, the only other portmanteau food I had…

    A mentee of mine recently asked how she should confront a co-worker about a delicate situation. Her intentions were good but she was worried the conversation would quickly escalate – to the point the co-worker might lash out at her. What should she do? As the situation could have had legal ramifications, I encouraged her to be upfront with her co-worker but allow him to remedy the situation. In other words, don’t back him into a corner. To bring the point to life, I told a story attributed to Winston Churchill, the former prime minster of Great Britain: During dinner for Commonwealth…

    A few weeks ago, I asked a co-worker to take the lead on a complex situation involving a partner. When I asked him whether he was comfortable being on point, my co-worker replied: This ain’t my first rodeo. If you’re not familiar with the expression, it’s a colorful way of telling someone you’re prepared for a situation and it doesn’t offer a significant challenge to you. Where I grew up, locals used a similar vivid expression: I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. In my experience, both expressions have a touch of sarcasm. They are often used when someone is being…

    OK, an admission. I’ve been avoiding reading Antifragile, the latest but now three-year-old book by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Nothing against Taleb; I follow him on twitter and really enjoyed his earlier books, The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness. The buzz surrounding Antifragile was mixed. A friend of mine summed up his opinion in one word: ‘Eh’. I still remember a withering review in the NY Times that included this sentence: Unfortunately he delivers such lessons with bullying grandiosity and off-putting, self-dramatizing asides. Ouch. But this weekend, I finally read…

    On a recent transatlantic flight, I watched the movie Forever Strong which was “inspired by” incidents surrounding the Highland Rugby team in Salt Lake City, Utah. While the movie gets mixed reviews, I was intrigued enough by the story of Larry Gelwix, Highland’s head coach, that I decided to do a bit of research into his story. Gelwix coached the Highland Rugby team for 35 years, from its founding in 1976 until his retirement in 2011. During his tenure, Highland had an amazing 418 wins with only 10 losses – winning 20 of the 27 national rugby championships held. True to the movie,…

We are all products of experiences, education, culture and our environment so it is only natural that we carry the biases we develop into most business situations.  There is an old…

First,  big thanks to Nick Merritt and Ian Cook from the TIBCO Analytics team for providing the foundation scripts and examples for this Tip!   Thank you!

    It all started with Moneyball, the 2011 film detailing how general manager Billy Beane used analytics to vastly improve the fortunes of his Oakland A’s.

Bottom line? It’s a game-changer. Here’s why. Seeing is Believing According to Forbes, a number of high-profile soccer clubs, such as Premier League’s Arsenal, are now spending big on analytics.

    26 May 2015 | 10:21 am
    Why are visual communications important? At one time or another, a parent or colleague probably told you, “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.” This maxim holds true to a great extent in visual communication. No matter how important the message, if it is conveyed poorly, people won’t read it, remember it or react to it. Here are five critically important design elements to keep in mind when working on your visual communication: 1.

  • How to Effectively Upsell and Cross-Sell [#infofraphic]

    Douglas Idugboe
    30 Mar 2015 | 8:57 am
    Are you familiar with upselling and cross-selling? If not, let me start by defining both terms to you: Upselling is a sales strategy that presents a buyer the chance to upgrade a purchase to a related product or service with more features and add-ons, often for more money, to increase a purchase volume. Cross-selling is similar to upselling. However, it is the process of selling different product or service to existing customers, again, to increase purchase volume. As a business, if you’re to grow at exponential rate, you should upsell and cross-sell with every sale whenever possible.

Hence the data analyst was needed in order to help the company make sense of its data. However, business intelligence software has changed all of this: Suddenly, data is…
