When people hear the word “analytics,” they tend to get nervous—especially when it’s coupled with other words like “algorithm,” “GPU,” and “deep learning.” And they automatically think that the subject matter is beyond their understanding (or even their IT team’s abilities). However, analytics doesn’t have to be impossible or “beyond your current capabilities.” Your company […]
Previously, we discussed the three fundamental branches of analytics as well as how each one successively breaks data down into more manageable pieces. In today’s installment, let’s continue the data ingestion conversation by discussing the different components of the Data Value Chain. Let’s Get Back to Basics The Business Dictionary Online defines a value chain […]
Housing untapped, raw data does little but expend additional storage and security resources. But, at the same time, accessing that data for active use is hard. Because of this, many companies have started working through their database administrators (DBAs) to try to get more from their data. However, as is the current trend, organizations are […]
Previously, we discussed some of the pros and cons posed by machine learning. While “self-learning” computers have become the future of autonomous tech, R&D teams are still working to iron out fundamental limitations found within the technology. Machine learning was created to eliminate the constant need for human computational resources, but researchers are finding more […]
Inflexible architectures prevent you from having the power and scalability to thrive in ever-expanding conditions. With limited mobility, customization, and agility to speak of, modern businesses are searching for a solution that is without compromise—a technological panacea that addresses the whole of their IT needs rather than simply solving a portion of them. In short, […]
As we mentioned before, there are seemingly limitless ways that Big Data can augment our realities, and we believe that it is important for you to understand how these analytics work behind the scenes in our everyday lives. If you have read the previous post, then you hopefully noticed the undeniable trend that runs throughout […]
The Latest Innovations and Controversies of Machine Learning Up until the 1950’s, computers needed incredibly detailed commands, in highly-specific languages, to accomplish even the simplest of tasks. By 1959, Arthur Samuel had developed the Samuel-Checkers-playing Program—a computer game that became the world’s first ever self-“learning” machine. Rather than pre-program his computer to tell it what […]

Today, we return to our ongoing analytics conversation. If you are new to the discussion and want to get caught up, consider revisiting our posts on the three fundamental levels of analytics as well as the analytics implementation learning curve that the tech industry is currently experiencing. For those who are caught up, however, we […]
“The majority of companies don’t realize that they can answer many of their business questions with the data that they already have. It’s just a question of being able to access it.” — TSA Enterprise Solutions Architect, Corey Gary
In a previous blog post, we discussed the three basic levels of analytics—descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive—and explained how this technology is architected to break down massive amounts of raw data into more manageable, actionable chunks. With modern business data analytics, researchers and technologists no longer have to “drink from the fire hose” of raw data.
However, it is important to establish that analytics is not simply a “wind-up-and-let-it-go” apparatus; it requires more resources than its current IT buzzword-status may have you believe. As a result, many companies are underutilizing the data at their disposal.
