Creating a Big Data Platform Roadmap

Perficient Data & Analytics

One of the most frequently asked questions by our customers is the roadmap to deploying a Big Data Platform and becoming a truly data-driven enterprise. Just as you can’t build a house without a foundation, you can’t start down a big data path without first establishing groundwork for success. There are several key steps to prepare the organization to realize the benefits of a big data solution with both structured and unstructured data.

Doing Cloud Migration and Data Governance Right the First Time

erwin

So if you’re going to move from your data from on-premise legacy data stores and warehouse systems to the cloud, you should do it right the first time. And as you make this transition, you need to understand what data you have, know where it is located, and govern it along the way.

For example, the core “json” package converts JSON to Go structures yet does nothing to automate this process. If you have a large JSON document to consume, you’ll be writing the corresponding Go structures by hand. Thus to solve the problem above, I can turn to [link] , which automatically generates Go data structures that match a JSON document.

How to Do Data Modeling the Right Way

erwin

Data modeling supports collaboration among business stakeholders – with different job roles and skills – to coordinate with business objectives. Data resides everywhere in a business , on-premise and in private or public clouds. And it exists across these hybrid architectures in different formats: big and unstructured and traditional structured business data may physically sit in different places. Nine Steps to Data Modeling. Promote data literacy.

Speculation Attack Against Intel's SGX

Schneier on Security

At a high level, SGX is a new feature in modern Intel CPUs which allows computers to protect users' data even if the entire system falls under the attacker's control. Attempts to read SGX data from outside an enclave receive special handling by the processor: reads always return a specific value (-1), and writes are ignored completely. Another speculative-execution attack against Intel's SGX.

OLAP and Hadoop: The 4 Differences You Should Know

Perficient Data & Analytics

OLAP is a technology to perform multi-dimensional analytics like reporting and data mining. Hadoop is a technology to perform massive computation on large data. They can be used together but there are differences when choosing between using Hadoop/MapReduce data processing versus classic OLAP. For transactions and data mining use OLAP. But, for analytics and data discovery use Hadoop. For unknown messier data/processes that yield suggestive results use Hadoop.

Indeed, blockchain’s distributed data structure results in a significantly higher storage demand compared to traditional centralized databases. However, central systems often suffer from a lack of trust, resulting in “hidden” data silos and often additional labor costs. However, as all the parties have a stake in accurate data, each producer also keeps its own production records. Centralized data governance.

Today, banks struggle to comply with BCBS-23 due to an inefficient data architecture within their organization. According to a study conducted by Mckinsey , having an inefficient data architecture is the number one challenge banks face when trying to comply with BCBS-23. In other words, the biggest challenge that banks face is pulling relevant information from complex data structures because data is stored in multiple data warehouses without a common data model.
