After you’ve enjoyed your holiday meal – or recovered from it – take a break and “unwrap” Zoomdata’s big data and analytics special gift. A trove of reports, recorded webcasts, and DM Radio episodes selected from a very big year in big data.
First, up the O’Reilly Media report: State of Data Analytics and Visualization Adoption. In the fast-evolving data analytics and visualization market, you don’t want to fall behind. So, businesses and individuals are scrambling to make the best technology choices.
Businesses need to choose the right languages, products, architectures, and data sources. Individuals need to learn the right skills to snare the best jobs. Choose poorly and either runs the risk of failing to take advantage of the timely insights provided by well-conceived and timely data analytics and visualization programs. Read the report now.
Then, we have two IM Live webcasts. One looks at how streaming data can help you react in real time to events that shape your business -- if you have the data architecture and analytical tools to harness it. The other explores the “dark side” of the internet of things (IoT). It’s a great source of real-time data, but with every connected device, data privacy and security concerns increase. Watch now: IM Live: Streaming Analytics or IM Live: IoT and Security
And for the finale, three DM Radio episodes. In each, a panel of experts takes on questions and topics like:
- Innovations in the technologies of KYC
- Customizing offers in real time
