Big Data

The well-known three Vs of Big Data - Volume, Variety, and Velocity – are increasingly placing pressure on organizations that need to manage this data as well as extract value from this data deluge for Predictive Analytics and Decision-Making. Big Data technologies, services, and tools such as Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive and NoSQL/NewSQL databases and Data Integration techniques, In-Memory approaches, and Cloud technologies have emerged to help meet the challenges posed by the flood of Web, Social Media, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) data flowing into organizations.

There's a surprising trick for greatly increasing the chances of real impact, true success with many types of machine learning systems, and that is "do the logistics correctly and efficiently."   That sounds like simple advice - it is - but the impact can be enormous. If the logistics are not handled well, machine learning projects generally fail to deliver practical value. In fact, they may fail to deliver at all.

With all of the hype around data being "the oil of the 21st century" and the rise of "the algorithm economy," it seems reasonable to make it a priority to learn more about how laws affect our lives as DBAs.
