AI and Machine Learning have the ability to transform the world as we know it. Many Fortune 500 CEOs feel the same—81% of respondents in a recent survey said that AI and Machine Learning are a“critical area of investment”.

With the Cloud platform software market expected to reach $90 billion by 2020, even the largest and most conservative organisations are moving some or all of their analytics to the Cloud. With so many options for…

Machine Learning (ML) algorithms learn from data. It is critical that you feed them the right data for the problem you want to solve. Even if you have good data, you need to make sure that…

Creating an Agile Closed Loop Data Science Workflow with Datameer and Amazon SageMaker

Introduction If you’re going to do machine learning work right, you’re going to need well-honed data sets to build your models on.  It is not just about cleaning up the data.  It is also about discovering…

In this blog, we cover five best practices for system administrators to keep users satisfied when it comes to maintenance updates: schedule, think holistically, review urgency, test changes incrementally and repeat changes into production.

The nominations are in and – Who are we kidding? The results aren’t even close. The winner of Big Data’s Person of the Year is…The Chief Data Officer (CDO). Clearly congratulations are in order! But let’s step back for a second and take a look at the marketplace that’s made this all possible.

But all of these data points are really part of a much greater puzzle that, once “solved” and articulated, has the power to fuel digital transformation.

2017 has been a big year for big data industry trends and for the Datameer team as well. From our introduction of SmartAI, which allows you to deploy artificial intelligence directly to your data lake, to our major announcement of Datameer Visual Explorer’s interactive data exploration capabilities, we’ve claimed our place among the movers and shakers of the 2017 Big Data Marketplace.

Vivint Smart Home’s Miki Seltzer, data scientist, and Raul Olvera, senior data engineer, visited theCUBE, SiliconANGLE’s mobile livestreaming studio, and spoke with host Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick) They discussed how the company handles the massive amount of homeowner data it collects, Datameer Inc.’s role in analytics, and the future use of personal information by customers.

3 Steps to Optimize your Data Lake

Data today is quickly growing in volume, variability and complexity. This has left organizations with the challenge of harnessing all this data – however broad in variety or large in volume – to derive more value and insights from it.

Six Key Characteristics of a “Cloud-native” Platform

With the Cloud platform software market expected to reach $90 billion by 2020, even the largest and most conservative organizations are moving some or all of their analytics to the Cloud. According to the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms report:

The cloud computing revolution has changed technology, and how businesses use it. It’s made for unprecedented levels of agility and flexibility in the use of, and budgeting for, technology. It’s lowered barriers to entry, it’s leveled the proverbial playing field and it’s also pressured organizations to accelerate their adoption of technology in order to stay competitive. But you knew all that.
