by Ziko Rajabali April 11, 2017 A bridge is only worth crossing if it can hold strong while we cross. When we’re crossing the chasm on a bridge of data, it needs to have integrity. Last week, we discussed chilling the data: why it’s important to put operational data into long-term storage. Unfortunately, teams often pre-aggregate the data when chilling it, under the impression that storage is expensive or that the visualization will always be faster. But what about the questions we don’t know to ask yet? What happens when we don’t know what we don’t know? Avoid Destruction of […]

Three Data Strategy Oversights – Part Two

by Ziko Rajabali April 4, 2017 We’ll cross that bridge when we get there only works if that bridge already exists. When that bridge is a strategic decision, it is a bridge of data. Last week, we talked about unconventional sources of data, like emails. In a way, it was like unearthing a new raw material for the bridge. But what about the refinement of known raw materials? How do we maximize the value of data that comes from conventional sources? In part 1 of this series, we mentioned how sensor measurements are often overlooked in data strategy. Sensors are […]
