While the field of data science is not tied directly to Big Data, advances in one tends to produce advances in the other. Big Data increases our ability to harvest and process data, while data science allows us to dig into it for insights.
Today’s tech-savvy organizations are typically proud of their innovation and culture. Most will say they are indeed “data-driven.” However, is it true? In my experience with many silicon entities, not meaning to court tabloid controversy, I would have to answer this question with a “No.” Let me explain by invoking
As part of Springboard’s effort to put together a comprehensive, free guide to acing the data science interview, we interviewed Springboard alumni and one of our mentors to get a handle on how they made it past the data science interview. Springboard teaches data science by pairing learners with one-to-one instruction

Cloud computing is quickly becoming popular and the number of cloud based applications is increasing with the passage of each day. One of these is the cloud based knowledge base. A knowledge base is a digital resource that contains data as well as the rules for sharing and updating information
I do believe the future can be much better with the possibilities technology offers us. BUT, it will always require our participation and action. We can’t expect technology to solve all our problems but it will definitely empower us to do more. This is our vision at The Social Coin
Pokémon Go is a big deal, and no city is safe from the roaming hordes of trainers seeking more powerful Pokémon, sprinting like packs of animals whenever something rare appears. For all of the hype and positivity surrounding the game, there has also been ample concern generated by the not-so-surprising
Despite the advances in data integration and the blurring of the lines between batch (ETL) and real-time (EAI) integration, the process of managing and blending third-party or externally public datasets continues to be a burden for IT, and a cost for business, both in dollars and missed opportunities. Identifying and
