Why is targeted advertisement so hard?

The 3 ways Hadoop will change your Business Intelligence

“It’s the analytics stupid!” Obviously the offense is not intended at the dear reader. It’s a wake up call for all the people excited with Hadoop and lack BI vision. The BI people that lack infrastructure vision are also to blame. Blame for what? We’ll see later in this (more...)

What does Data Science, Borat and Monty Python have in common?

Research: the heart that pumps data If you talk to any kid in school about how he acquires knowledge, he would say that is through studying. The study uses books, classes, internet resources, and all the classic means of knowledge gathering. The further school gets into science the more important it gets to gather knowledge [...]

Big Data: stop the panic, start the project. Do’s and Don’ts.

Hadoop! What is it good for? Absolutely … everything!

In times of hysteria people tend to use their reptilian brain. This sub-brain, that has been with us since we were fish, or tadpoles, it’s what kicks in when we face the unknown. In computer science or information technology, organizations tend to hold down to emotions and less and less in reasoning. Could it be [...]
