Data Science for Spreadsheet Users

DataCamp

In this webinar, DataCamp Account Executive Chris Cardillo will challenge anyone spending their days in and out of spreadsheets to pick up a coding language. He’ll cover the tangible benefits of incorporating coding into an everyday workflow, as well as examples of where coding enhances or replaces work done in spreadsheets. Finally, he’ll cover some R language equivalents for spreadsheet techniques, and where to get started when you’re ready to take the first step.

In 1948, the post-war British Government badly needed to improve the nation’s economy. To help it draw up the right policies for jobs and growth, the Government took a very scientific approach - one of which Lord Kelvin would have been proud. Government statisticians were instructed to count, classify and measure the economic activity of every business in the country. They developed a set of Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes and the data they collected was used to shape policy in every aspect of the British economy.

Improving Transactional Applications with Analytics

MariaDB

Today, most web and mobile applications are limited to “lightweight” analytics because general-purpose databases can be optimized for transactional or analytical workloads, but not both – and since transactional processing is critical, applications have to compromise on analytics. However, what if an e-commerce application could let customers know which products are soon to be sold out based on clickstream data, shopping carts, current inventory and recent purchases as well as historical buying patterns and emerging shopping trends? In this webinar, attendees will learn how to leverage MariaDB ColumnStore to provide transactional applications with real-time analytics on historical data.

Data Governance Strategies

DATAVERSITY

Much like project management and home improvements, Data Governance sounds a lot simpler than it actually is. In a nutshell, Data Governance can be explained as “managing data with guidance.” In general, the perceived utility of these programs increases with the specificity of desired data and processing improvements. Whether restarting or starting your Data Governance programs, it is critical to be guided by a periodically revised Data Strategy that links support for organizational strategy to specific operational data improvements. Understanding these and other aspects of governance is necessary to eliminate the ambiguity that often surrounds the implementation of effective Data Management and stewardship programs.

Frameworks add significant value for those organizations getting started and improve or address missing components for programs already in place.This month’s RWDG webinar with Bob Seiner will focus on dissecting a common Data Governance framework and customizing the framework to match the needs of your organization. Frameworks can be complex to describe but, in this case, the framework will become the self-describing face of your program.
