Peer Instruction and Flipped Learning – Perfect Together! | What is big data? How do we use it? | Scoop.it

"This week I read this great Campus Technology article about a couple of techniques Dr. Julie Schell is using to make the most of her flipped classroom. I wanted to share one of these techniques with readers here … Peer Instruction. According to Schell, Peer Instruction was developed in the 1990s by Professor Eric Mazur at Harvard University."

McDonald's recipe for Big Data:

1. Discover - rapidly come up with ideas and incubate them

2. Develop - get the right perspective and develop these new projects

3. Deploy - more diverse departments become involved, such as marketing or design


McDonald’s has became an information-centric organization that makes data-driven decisions.


In particular McDonald’s focuses on providing the best possible experience to customers. That's why, although all McDonald’s around the world look the same, each restaurant is slightly different as they are optimized using all that data for the local market.

When Big Data and Small Data Work Together

Ultimately, success via insight depends not on the size of the data set, but on the effectiveness of the analytics used to generate results.

Luca Naso's curator insight, March 4, 2014 4:48 AM

Insights come from Big Brains, not Big Data.


Big Data doesn't necessarily have to be terabytes or petabytes in size to be considered “Big.” Any amount of data that a marketer can't easily convert into actionable insights with internal data management resources can be considered “Big Data”, at least as far as the owner of the data is concerned.


Therefore, when it comes to developing insights, I would say that the size of the data is fairly irrelevant. Ultimately, success via insight depends not on the size of the data set, but on the effectiveness of the analytics used to generate results. 

 

Here are 4 key components for developing actionable insight:

1. Develop a data-centric approach to marketing;

2. Create an appropriate data management infrastructure;

3. Collect relevant data;

4. Use effective analysis tools.

Tomáš Kuzár's curator insight, March 4, 2014 8:11 AM

Big Data is not only about big amount of data, but is also about smaller about of data, which cannot be processes with traditional tools.

R skills attract the highest salaries

R skills attract the highest salaries | What is big data? How do we use it? | Scoop.it
Two recent salary surveys have shown that R language skills attract median salaries in excess of $110,000 in the United States. In the 2014 Dice Tech Salary Survey of over 17,000 technology professionals, the highest-paid IT skill was R programming. While big-data skills in general featured strongly in the top tier, having R at the top of the list reflects the strong demand for skills to make sense of, and extract value from big data. Similarly, the recent O'Reilly Data Scientist Survey also found R skills amongst those that pay in the $110,000-$125,000 range (albeit amongst a much smaller and...

Customers expect a lot. They want the right product or service to fit their needs, they want it quickly, and want it to work well.


Data plays into satisfying all of those goals. At its core, data for the small business means streamlining processes and finding what is most relevant to customers.


Here are the main two guidelines:

1. Decisions should be informed by data;

2. Departments within the company need to measure everything.

Can MapReduce solve planning problems?

Can MapReduce solve planning problems? | What is big data? How do we use it? | Scoop.it

To solve a planning or optimization problem, some solvers tend to scale out poorly: As the problem has more variables and more constraints, they use a lot more RAM memory and CPU power. They can hit hardware memory limits at a few thousand variables and few million constraint matches. One way their users typically work around such hardware limits, is to use MapReduce.
