Data engineers have a wide array of responsibilities. Usually, their main job is to make data useful and accessible to other data professionals. Yet, none of their tasks can’t be performed without the proper tooling. That’s why in this article, our data expert is taking you on a journey through the core data engineering tools. With these tools, you’ll be well-equipped to complete all of the key data engineering endeavours.
Did you know that Netflix saves $1 billion annually thanks to big data? From that perspective, it’s not surprising that 97.2% of organizations are already investing in that field. However, with this rapid growth also comes a rising threat – security issues. To fight off these malicious activities, you need protection. So, in this article, we'll explore why big data security is important and how to set it up.
You've probably heard that "data is the new oil" before. That’s a really cool analogy – said somebody in 2006. Now, this perspective has become a trope. Yet...it still depicts what Data Engineering is really well. That’s why we’re going to disappoint and talk about Data Engineering with gasoline analogies once again. But don't leave; we promise it's worth reading.
Microsoft Power BI Desktop (the “BI” stands for “Business Intelligence”) connects the world of spreadsheets and programming – it has an interface not too distant from Excel, but also enables you to design complex data loading processes and enhanced built-in transformation features with snippets of real code.
The beginning of the last decade saw the rise of Data Science. Multiple companies – including some leading brands – started employing Data Scientists. Businesses spent millions on developing this field at their organizations… and often contributed towards the biggest ML Ops fails in history. Luckily, the current data science landscape is completely different. In this blog entry, we're going to guide you through a fairly easy implementation of tools that will empower your Data Scientists to deliver value effectively.
5G – the fifth generation of the cellular network standard – is undoubtedly a technological game-changer. Compared to 4G, it introduces an entirely new level of data transmission speed, reliability, number of connected devices, and low latency. Each of these improvements is a crucial change. But, in my opinion, the most ground-breaking is the minimised latency.
