Why Startups Own the Future of Big Data

Rich Brueckner from insideHPC shared his knowledge and insight during SC14 at the Adaptive Computing Theater. He presented on, “Data and Goliath – Why Startups Own the Future of Big Data.” He discussed a hobby of his: inside-Startups and in the context of big data, there’s an important thing that’s going. Companies like Docker (containers) […]

Time for HPC to Take it’s Rightful Place in the Datacenter

In May 2011 I moved my family to a sleepy little town in Utah called Provo. Utah is far different than sunny Southern California where I had lived my whole life. I started working for this hot little Cloud Management Platform (CMP) company called Adaptive Computing. Adaptive Computing was a little different from the Hi-Tech […]

Big Data Challenge: Data Wrangling

One of the well-known difficulties for data analytics is data wrangling. Essentially, the process of “data wrangling”—sometimes lovingly referred to as janitor work—is transforming raw data into something that can actually be analyzed by algorithms and data scientists. When you have totally raw data it is very difficult to process, especially with natural language. Think […]

Predicting the Big Data Landscape

In the time since I co-wrote Big Data for Dummies (Wiley, 2013), there has been an explosion in the interest around big data (and big analytics and big workflow). While the interest, and concomitant marketing, has been exploding, big data implementations have proceeded at a relatively normal pace. Now that we are closing out 2014, I […]
