Chris Balbrick Infographiste's insight:

Data Lakes as the Big Data alternative to Data Warehouses.

 

Their main features are:

1. Contain ALL of the data, both structured and unstructured, internal and external;

2. Store all data in RAW format;

3. No SCHEMA is imposed on the data.

 

I like Data Lakes because they:

1. Are flexible

2. Break silos

This increases the success rate of Big Data projects.

Les "lacs de données", une nouvelle façon de stocker les données

 

Infographie listant les informations de base sur les lacs de données et leurs différences avec le stockage classique. Les lacs de données regroupent les données en vrac et sans traitement. L'accès y est plus ouvert que pour les bases de données classiques. De ce point de vue, ils s'apparentent à l'open data.

 

Cette nouveauté semble intimement liée au développement de méthodes de recherche capables de relier entre elles des données hétérogènes.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 25, 2015 12:13 AM

Health issues resulting from poor air quality are a growing concern for consumers and accurate monitoring is becoming more and more in demand, for both outdoor and indoor environments.
Air quality is typically measured on just a few distinct locations per city, with specialized equipment. Many current gas sensors are large in size, have high power consumption and are too cost prohibitive to be implemented on a large scale for I2oT applications. Imec and Holst Centre have developed small, simple, low power and high quality autonomous sensors that wirelessly communicate with the environment and the cloud.  Imec and Holst Centre's NO2 sensors were integrated in the Aireas air quality network, a multiple sensor network in the city center of Eindhoven (the Netherlands). The purpose was to test -in actual outdoor conditions and long term- the stability of the sensors, and benchmark them against established reference sensors. The sensors are operational since early May 2015 and contribute with valuable outdoor sensor data since then. During traffic rush hours, the sensors detect a significant increase of NO2 concentration up to the health safety limits.  Imec and Holst Centre are currently deploying a similar sensor network inside the Holst Centre building in Eindhoven to test the sensors for indoor air quality monitoring. This environmental monitoring platform today includes it proprietary NO2 sensor and commercial sensors for temperature, relative humidity and CO2. The measured levels can be monitored live, over the internet. In a next step, proprietary low-cost low-power sensors will be added for CO2, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), ozone, and particle matter.  The generated sensor data are transferred to the cloud, stored in a database and immediately available on (mobile) applications, explained Kathleen Philips, director of imec's perceptive systems for the intuitive internet of things R&D program. "Data fusion methodology and advanced algorithms enable us to combine data from different sensors such as temperature, several gasses, humidity, human presence detection and to derive contextual knowledge. This information contributes to a correct interpretation of the situation and helps us to take adequate.

I used to be "old school" about the use of  "they" as described in this article. I would certainly use it in speech, but I would never use it in written content. But as this article points out, as I become more aware of transgender issues, it makes total sense to use "they". I would rather refer a person as "they" than "it" because "it" refers to a thing, and a person is far from a thing.

If you haven't heard the news, Google Fiber is expanding to a few more cities.  Will it make a difference? Is it more affordable than its competitors and truly offer better service and faster rates? Time will tell. But the good thing in all this is that it offers additional competition to FiOS, Comcast, and several other providers out there. Hopefully this will help drive down costs and make internet accessibility more affordable for all in the long run, even in far-off places. It's a start!

Stop hiring data scientists until you’re ready for data science

Stop hiring data scientists until you’re ready for data science | AWS or the life of a web agency | Scoop.it
If you thought you were ready for data science but you're not, don't put your new data science hire into a different role or block them as they keep trying to be successful. Be honest and let them go.

Via Richard Platt
Chris Balbrick Infographiste's insight:

This same list goes for hiring Professional Innovation Managers we use descriptive, prescriptive and diagnostic models to evaluate opportunities and challenges to innovating and enabling the firm to be competitive. 


Tips on letting that brilliant HR data scientist you hired be one of your most brilliant hires:

1. Assign reporting to someone else. It’s a very important task, but it doesn’t require a data scientist. Reporting will quickly bore them to tears and they’ll resign.

2. Don’t block them from talking directly to your business areas. I often hear they have to go through the HR Business Partner who protects the business leader and blocks them from access. Working with the HR Business Partner of course makes sense. Being blocked by the HR Business Partner doesn’t.

3. Task HR Business Partners with finding either high turnover roles or low performance roles that your data scientist can work to help with.

4. Have them focus first on solving business challenges (like Financial Advisor turnover) not HR challenges like compliance issues. This will give visibility to the great work they do and introduce HR’s new expertise to solving business challenges that affect the bottom line.

5. When they complete an analytics project, give them a chance to talk and present the results, regardless of the outcomes. Did it help or not help? Don’t keep the results inside of HR.

6. Admit that you’re a little nervous about what they do. They’re nervous about what you do too.

7. Trust your data scientist. Stop being scared. You hired them because they have an area of expertise traditional HR doesn’t. Embrace their area of expertise. You need to trust their advice and approach, or, yes, they’ll leave.

 

“Anyone can hire a data scientist. Not every HR department or organization is ready for data science. Generating reports are not analytics — even if they’re prettier or faster reports. Dashboards are not analytics — even if they’re really pretty dashboards. More than anyone, HR should understand the devastating impact of changing job description on someone that’s been hired.”  -  Ironically, that data scientist hire is perhaps one of the most brilliant and strategic hires that HR department has ever made — perhaps ever. But only if they let her do what she was hired to do. HR data scientists can help move HR from being tactical to strategic, using an analytics approach to highlight never seen before patterns, make decisions based on data, and the like.

As organizations become more and more data-driven, it becomes progressively more important to set up a healthy and productive way to manage data.

Here are 4 major steps to follow to help you improve on this:

1. Data Management

2. Data Security

3. Data Quality

4. The Team

-----

1.

Data management is the “administrative process by which the required data is acquired, validated, stored, protected, and processed, and by which its accessibility, reliability, and timeliness is ensured to satisfy the needs of the data users.”Basic pillars are: provisioning, protection, replication and recovery.Evaluate data before engaging in big data analytics.Have a maintenance plan.
2.

Data security must be prioritized by any organization to enable it to function properly and for operations to flow efficiently. It also provides stockholders and executive teams peace of mind of knowing that the information they have stored in their servers will not be easily exploited by hackers or cyber-criminals.
3.

A study conducted by Experian Data Quality shows that outstanding data quality has a direct correlation to an increase in company profits. 4 steps to reduce incidence of human error (cited by 65 percent of organizations to be the main cause of data problems): Identify data entry points, train staff, Automated verification, clean data over time.
4.

Hire a competent team of professionals who know their roles very well: data management supervisor, data entry staff, data analyst, quality and training staff

Social media has become a essential part of business as many people gain information from social media and they decide whether to trust or choose a certain market. In my opinion, social media generally brings positive impact to business as buyers can get as much information to buy a product which is reliable which promotes more people to buy things and markets can also advertise their product to people more since more and more people are using social media. It is also more convenient for buyers to check whether the market is reliable or not as people can check and compare to other sources more accessibly in social media.
