As of mid-2017, I’ve spent almost two years in the big data analytics and data science world, coming from 13 years of diverse work experience in engineering and management prior. Starting from a professional curiosity, it has taken me a while to develop some data science and engineering skills and hone key skills among these […]Read more "Pervasive Trends in Big Data and Data Science"
One of the changes envisioned in the big data space is that there is the need to receive data that isn’t so much big in volume, as big in relevance. Perhaps this is a crucial distinction to make. Here, we examine business manifestations of relevant data, as opposed to just large volumes of data. What Managers Want From […]Read more "Big Data: Size and Velocity"
Data products are one inevitable result and culmination of the information age.

The context that suits a discussion on this is to me, centred around prioritization of what comes in through the sensors (or other big data gathered from these “jagged edge” sources). This is a […]Read more "The “Jagged Edge” of Real Time Analytics"
