Will your project fail without a data scientist?

Will your project fail without a data scientist? | All @Virtualization & @Cloud | Scoop.it
Data scientist may be the sexiest job of the current century, and everybody in the world may be crying hoarse over the growing shortage of data scientists, but if you are leading an international development project or an international development agency, chances are you don’t have a data scientist on your team and you likely aren’t looking for one. That’s a problem.

Big Data and the Internet of Things | SmartData Collective | All @Virtualization & @Cloud | Scoop.it
So what exactly is the internet of things? There’s so much hype surrounding it, yet many people don’t really know what it is, or what to expect from it. Simply put, the internet of things is when basically everything we do is online. To some degree we’re already seeing the beginning of that, and it’s just going to continue.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 11, 2014 6:32 PM

"Data is the starting point and basic building block in a knowledge-based organization. Since the majority of big data uses today are machine-to-machine ad serving applications of “real-time” digital or internal data, knowledge isn’t required. Strategy requires a broader view of data. Strategy requires data that serves as fuel, but logic and experience still need to be applied to generate knowledge-based systems. Knowing not only what happened, but why it happened (diagnostic), what will happen (predictive) and how we can make it happen (prescriptive) is important for moving beyond big data to knowledge."

Cassandra Hits One Million Writes Per Second on Google Compute Engine

Cassandra Hits One Million Writes Per Second on Google Compute Engine | All @Virtualization & @Cloud | Scoop.it

Augusto Porto's insight:

Google is known for creating scalable high performance systems. In a recent blog post, we demonstrated how Google Cloud Platform can rapidly provision and scale networking load to handle one million requests per second. A fast front end without a fast backend has limited use, so we decided to demonstrate a backend serving infrastructure that could handle the same load. We looked at popular open source building blocks for cloud applications and choose Cassandra, a NoSQL database designed for scale and simplicity.
