Why Data Analytics Knowledge Is the Key to Career Success

Guest post by Tiffany Rowe If you have read any type of business news in the last few years, you’ve no doubt noticed that “big data” is one of the most important trends in every industry. Every day, millions of bytes of data are collected and stored – data that has the potential to provide keen insights to make businesses run more efficiently and profitably. That is if the data is properly analysed. In fact, some experts have even deemed big data “useless” unless someone has the skills to analyse it and draw conclusions from it. So, while even just a few years ago, the field of data analytics was relatively small, today it’s been called the “sexiest” career field […] Continue Reading

Sensor Data Analytics Creating New Possibilities for Business

For nearly five years now, visitors staying in Walt Disney World Resort hotels in Orlando have received “Magic Bands” before their arrival. These wristbands, similar to fitness trackers, are equipped with RFID technology and sensors that allow them to serve as hotel room keys, park admission tickets, and can be used to charge meals and other purchases to the credit card on file. For those who like to plan ahead, Magic Bands also allow visitors to schedule up to three attractions in advance, and then bypass the lines. While Magic Bands help simplify a Disney vacation for visitors, the real benefit is to the resort itself. The data collected by Magic Bands can help streamline park operations while also managing […] Continue Reading

Harvesting Photons for the Highways of the Future

About six years ago, an out-of-the-box idea started making waves all over the web, and its campaign on Indiegogo.com was one of the most successful ever recorded. Not only have they gathered over $2.2 million USD from enthusiasts in all corners of this oblate spheroid we call home, but they also got $1.65 million and some change from several contracts for SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research), from the USDOT (U.S. Department of Transportation) and various personal donations from 2009 to 2015. Where did all this money go? Most of it went into empiric, trial and error, rather expensive R&D for the Solar Roadways® hexagonal panels/pavement blocks. It was a “wild idea” that had conquered Julie Brusaw, a concerned-for-the-environment private counselor […] Continue Reading

Career Roles In Big Data

Guest post by Imarticus Learning These days, it seems like the term ‘big data’ has become somewhat of a catchphrase for anyone working in the IT sector, or someone who is remotely interested in data science and technology. The main reason is probably the fact that big data is potent enough to create ginormous miracles on a daily basis. For instance, you’re planning a big trip to someplace very exotic, the first thing that you would do is begin to look for hotels. While you are looking for hotels, you come across an email in your Inbox, which gives you great discounts on bookings of hotels, in the very location you were looking for. This is no mere coincidence, but one […] Continue Reading

Remedies for an Ailing Business: Choose the Right SEO Tools and DBA Support

Over the last few years, nothing has changed more drastically than the SEO rules for small businesses. With the radical change in algorithm brought on by Google updates, the rules for all successful SEOs have changed beyond recognition. Gone are the days when you could simply stuff your content with reiterating keywords and hoped that the search engines picked up on them. Humanizing the spiders Today, you need to add keywords according to the context of your content. More often than not, keywords are read as a part of the complete sentence. Search engine crawlers like to look for the context of the keywords rather than isolated phrases or words. This happened because Google wanted to create a complete reading […] Continue Reading

Five Steps To Handling Big Data

Community posts are submitted by members of the Big Data Community and span a range of themes.  No longer ring-fenced by the IT department, big data has well and truly become part of marketing’s remit. A deluge of data flowing from the ever-increasing number of offline and online media, coupled with rapid changes in consumer behaviour – the way people shop, work and relax – is making marketers’ job more difficult. But despite the complexity of big data, it offers huge opportunities for brands to drive value from their customer information. The sheer volume and number of different sources producing big data means marketing departments need a cast-iron plan for making the most of it. Traditional offline sources are being […] Continue Reading
