I recently found a thought-provoking piece in the Harvard Business Review Blog Network entitled “Data is Worthless if You Don’t Communicate It” by Tom Davenport. This article supports what I’ve been harping on in the blogosphere for a long while now – every data set tells a story and it is the job of the data scientist to be its mouthpiece. Gone are the days when you could just print a report with columns of numbers to provide business insight. As the article says:

 

"Too many managers are, with the help of their analyst colleagues, simply compiling vast databases of information that never see the light of day, or that only get disseminated in auto-generated business intelligence reports. As a manager, it’s not your job to crunch the numbers; …  it is your job to communicate them".

Pro Data Visualization using R and JavaScript makes the R language approachable, and promotes theidea of data gathering and analysis. You’ll see how to use R to interrogate and analyze your data, and then use the D3 JavaScript library to format and display that data in an elegant, informative, and interactive way. You will learn how to gather data effectively, and also how to understand the philosophy and implementation of each type of chart, so as to be able to represent the results visually.

With the popularity of the R language, the art and practice of creating data visualizations is no longer the preserve of mathematicians, statisticians, or cartographers. As technology leaders, we can gather metrics around what we do and use data visualizations to communicate that information. Pro Data Visualization using R and JavaScript combines the power of the R language with the simplicity and familiarity of JavaScript to display clear and informative data visualizations.

Gathering and analyzing empirical data is the key to truly understanding anything. We can track operational metrics to quantify the health of our products in production. We can track quality metrics of our projects, and even use our data to identify bad code. Visualizing this data allows anyone to read our analysis and easily get a deep understanding of the story the data tells.

What you’ll learnA rich understanding of how to gather, and analyze empirical dataHow to tell a story with data using data visualizationsWhat types of data visualizations are best to use for the story that you want to tell with your dataA comprehensive introduction to the R language, covering all the essentialsExploration of how to construct interactive data visualizations using JavaScript and JavaScript librariesWho this book is for

Developers at all levels interested in data visualization, beginning to intermediate engineering managers, statisticians, mathematicians, economists and any others interested in data visualization.

Intelligence and Chess

Intelligence and Chess | Data games | Scoop.it

In competitive intelligence, it is extremely unlikely that your competitor is equal to you. In competitive intelligence, you are governed by the rules that you and your employer (or client) set, in addition to rules established by law and custom. It is never clear whether your opponent is governed by the same rules and if so, whether or not a competitor complies with them (but, usually they do). In competitive intelligence, there are no third-party judges make final decisions. And in competitive intelligence, the more you learn about your competitor and, conversely the less you can keep your competitor from learning about you, the better you will ultimately do..

Is it a fact or a dimension? When starting out in dimensional modeling, this can be tricky. Well, this likely continues to be tricky sometimes. Facts are generally regarded as measures of the core business, and dimensions are usually descriptors of those facts. Good reference article from the Kimball Group.

Carla Gentry CSPO's curator insight, November 4, 2013 8:40 AM

Venture capitalists (VCs) hear lots of pitches from startups, and usually use their personal intuitions to separate the good from the bad. For an elite few, this intuition-driven process has delivered fantastic returns. Yet most of the roughly 500 US-based VC funds have performed rather poorly, with the national venture capital index showing negative industry returns for the 2000 – 2010 decade. This isn’t meant to give VCs a hard time; picking winners is tougher than it looks. But why not branch out into a more data-driven approach?

A five minute Google outage equals a big dip in internet traffic | GigaOM Tech News

A five minute Google outage equals a big dip in internet traffic | GigaOM Tech News | Data games | Scoop.it

If there was any doubt about Google and its dominant reach on the web, then the five minute outage that took down all Google properties including GMail and YouTube on late Friday proved it for once and for all.

 

Go Squared, which keeps track of web traffic, on its website noted that “the number of page views coming into GoSquared’s real-time tracking — around a 40% drop.”

 

According to Deepfield, an Ann Arbor, MI based networking company, Google (not including its other properties) now accounts for nearly 25 percent of internet traffic on an average.

 

“I’d say the overall impact was modest since the outage mainly seemed to impact lower bandwidth (but arguably more critical) services like gmail,” said Craig Labovitz, founder of Deepfield and added, “Specifically, the large volumes of Youtube traffic originating from distributed Google edge caches (GGC) do not appear to have been impacted in the same way.
