  1. One of my colleagues, Hugh McCann, recently presented our company with an update on his data analytics work. He kicked off with a summary of his home energy usage. I knew he'd been tracking this, and I believe we talked on the day he accidentally deleted 3 months of data!

One common classification of the data associated with a task is to consider the data products in three ways: the raw data collected or generated, the analysis and deliverables given to the client, and the knowledge generated from doing the work. It is good practice to describe in the contract how
  4. Big data is often confused with lots of data. This topic raises the issue of how to handle the growing volumes of data, and the 'Flood of data' knowledge note shows just how large this can be, but it there is further discussion that can be had on the differences between handling high volume data as a technical issue, and conducting data analytics of a big data set. The link can also be drawn to IOT design whereby the purpose for sensing and observing a particular data event should be a deliberate outcome of the design process to inform a decision. I see reports of data stores being overwh
