Data Insights Generate Big Wins for Kids via Donors Choose and Looker

pencilandsharpener.jpgSometimes the difference between a kid who can write a story and a kid who cannot is a pencil that’s sharp enough to write. And believe it or not, there are classrooms that don’t have pencils or pencil sharpeners.

There are first graders who haven’t read "A Cat in the Hat" because their classroom doesn’t have a copy of the book.

And there are fourth graders who are supposed to be learning about science, but their teacher is unable to access microscopes, lab notebooks or even geodes. 

Cloudera Stakes Its Claim to the Enterprise Data Hub

Cloudera literally aroused wonder at Strata Conference + Hadoop World last fall when it announced its Enterprise Data Hub (EDH) strategy. Standing before a packed house at the conference in New York City, the company’s co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Mike Olson proclaimed that Hadoop was moving from the periphery to the architectural center of the data center. It is now not only a place where data destined for Hadoop processing can land, but also where all enterprise data, without discrimination, can be efficiently and securely stored, processed, analyzed and delivered on demand to special purpose systems for further processing.

Often times these attacks go unanswered because I typically don’t carry cash in my pocket, or for the times when I do, the machine is broken.

Well, enter smart vending -- and the answer to my vending machine woes!

We Know What You'll Be Eating During the Super Bowl [Infographic]

Super Bowl teaser.jpg

Hunches are good, but data is better, so says best-selling author Dan Pink. And in a world of big data and sophisticated analytics, why would you even want to go on a hunch, especially when there’s so much great data available?

Maybe because, in this day and age, huge volumes of variable data come at you with such great velocity that it’s difficult to get an accurate picture of what it’s telling you. Especially if it’s all loaded into a spreadsheet.

And, even if you’re OK with jockeying spreadsheets, chances are the people with whom you want to have conversations and collaborate about the data are not. When they see you coming at them with an Excel file, they’ll run the other way. Send the e-mail with an .xls attachment and they may “accidentally” delete without reading …

Zettaset and MicroStrategy Deliver Secure, Big Data Insight #MSTRworld

hadoopornohadoop.jpgOK, so it’s not popular to say so, but Hadoop has some real big problems. Among them, the security vulnerabilities that exist “at every layer of the stack,” according to a blog post penned by Gartner analyst Merv Adrian.

So it goes to follow that the enterprises who turn a blind eye to those vulnerabilities might be headed for trouble.

That being said, companies who fail to identify data-driven insights and make decisions around them could be digging their own graves.

Altiscale has the RX for Hadoop Headaches

Hadoop isn’t easy.

Sure, there are vendors out there who will tell you that it is ... Just take this course or that exam. Work with us side-by-side as we “elephantize” your Enterprise, and presto you’re a pro.

No, you’re not.

Not yet, anyway. Regardless of what any of the 268,000 hits you get when you enter the term “Hadoop training” into Google happens to say. And it’s not that these folks are trying to mislead you — they’ve put their heads and their hearts into encouraging and enabling the widespread adoption of Hadoop.

It’s just that becoming a master at Hadoop (Wikipedia definition: open-source software framework for storage and large scale processing of data-sets on clusters of commodity hardware) takes time, experience, trial and error and enough opportunities to generate a continuous record of success. But that’s not all. As a new technology with a vibrant Open Source community, Hadoop keeps changing, so it’s hard to keep up.

How Will the Internet of Things Reach its Potential?

RFID.jpgKevin Ashton coined the term “Internet of Things” [IoT] in 1999. He built the concept primarily on his experience and expectations for Radio Frequency Identification [RFID] adoption. Since then, the IoT concept has grown to encompass any device that uses any type of Internet connectivity.
