Long-term business relationships are frequently beneficial for everyone involved, but every now and then a long-term arrangement simply becomes too costly to maintain.

Bootstrapping the right way?

Data Science and Beyond

Bootstrapping the right way is a talk I gave earlier this year at the YOW! Data conference in Sydney. You can now watch the video of the talk and have a look through the slides. The content of the talk is similar to a post I published on bootstrapping pitfalls , with some additional simulations.

IBM BigFix and Licensing Metric Tool

Perficient Data & Analytics

A few months ago, I was assigned the task of installing BigFix*/IBM Licensing Metric Tool (ILMT) for a client. I’ll admit that this was the first time installing this application, so I had to do my research. The video below goes through a basic installation based on what I learned.

Data Analytics in the Cloud for Developers and Founders

Speaker: Javier Ramírez, Senior AWS Developer Advocate, AWS

You have lots of data, and you are probably thinking of using the cloud to analyze it. But how will you move data into the cloud? In which format? How will you validate and prepare the data? What about streaming data? Can data scientists discover and use the data? Can business people create reports via drag and drop? Can operations monitor what’s going on? Will the data lake scale when you have twice as much data? Is your data secure? In this session, we address common pitfalls of building data lakes and show how AWS can help you manage data and analytics more efficiently.

Keynote and Session highlights at ASG Evolve19

Jen Stirrup

I’m excited to be attending ASG Technology’s Evolve19 event in Dallas, Texas on October 21 – 23. I’m particularly interested in learning more about metadata management. As I’ve written previously, I believe that metadata management is often overlooked in data science. It’s an important part of obtaining full value from data, and it should be part of the data maturity model.
