Hoping that companies wise up to the fact that they need a systemic, bottom-up approach to dealing with Big Data Variety, not just more point tools that let everybody and his brother do self-service data prep - thereby exacerbating the problem (more disconnected data silos).The more disconnected data silos, the more the status quo persists: enterprises will still be tapping only 10%-12% of their data. Gotta change the math, once and for all.

Very cool research work with endless possibilities.
 
New on the blog: How can Big Data make our communities better and more livable? Check out this post by ISTC Researcher +Kristin Tufte  of +Portland State University and Deena Platman of transportation planning and engineering firm DKS Associates. It's about the huge opportunities in using operational data collected from transportation systems to make better, more-data-driven decisions in transportation and urban planning - and the challenges in achieving this using current data-management tools. Learn about the Portal transportation data archive for the Portland, OR-Vancouver, WA region and how it is helping advance research.
By Kristin Tufte, Portland State University, and Deena Platman, DKS Associates. The Urban Planning and Transportation domains are undergoing a major change in data collection and usage. Two major factors contributing to this change are: first, a significant increase in deployment of urban ...

+tamr just announced an enterprise platform for scalable, end-to-end data unification - plus three new customers: GE, Roche and Toyota Motor Europe. This announcement is significant beyond the product: it ushers in a new era of enterprise-class management for Big Data - not just more point tools for techies. Tamr lets businesses lay down a scalable, disciplined and repeatable process for harnessing Big Data Variety - turning it into a business asset from a liability.

Big Data serial entrepreneurs +Andy Palmer and Mike Stonebraker, and their company +tamr will be at Strata + Hadoop World thisweek in San Jose. If you're interested in how to harness Big Data Variety for competitive advantage, check out the talks by Andy, Mike and others. With the Tamr Platforn, finding and connecting siloed data into unified views for analytics and downstream applications starts to look more like a Google search circa 2015 than a Yahoo index crawl circa 1995.
Heading to Strata? We’d love to meet up. Be sure to stop by booth #531 for a demo of Tamr’s next-gen data unification platform and some fresh baked cookies. Better yet, sign up below to schedule some time with Tamr’s experts to discuss how you can curate a unified view of all your data. Tamr... Read more »

Good read for marketers. 
One percent of people who see my tweets click on the links. That's not traffic. It's a rounding error.

The mainstreaming of data unification into business: Packaged solutions for business problems, specifically CDISC data conversion (pharma) and procurement (supply chain). Shortens time to value of diverse data, because it limits the effort that data scientists have to put in before data is business-digestible. +tamr is showing at Strata + Hadoop World this week in San Jose.

Good reminder for everyone/anyone in business: think before you Tweet. But shouldn't communications professionals, of all people, be held to a higher standard of social media conduct than most of the rest of the world? And thus hold themselves up to this standard?

""It’s a memoir of my ridiculous attempt to reinvent myself and start a new career as a marketing person inside a software company during the second tech bubble." Can't wait for the book.

Congrats to my amazing colleague Magda Balazinska of the University of Washington - one of the best, most creative research brains in Big Data management.
 
Congratulations to Intel S&TC Researcher Magdalena Balazinska of the University of Washington on being appointed to a Career Development Professorship – endowed positions that are awarded for a fixed period of time (typically three years) to extraordinary associate professors at the university. She "has become a world leader in big data management, scientific data management, and cloud computing."

Story
Tagline
Thinker, Marketing Writer, Muse & Creative-Communications Problem-Solver for Businesses
Introduction
Janice L. Brown specializes in using communications to position technology ventures, launch new companies and products, and develop industry thought leader programs. I have worked with technology companies since 1979 (beginning with Data General, Prime Computer and Computervision) and with health care, biotechnology and medical devices businesses since 1978. I've  been involved with Internet marketing and social media since 1990 (bulletin boards on CompuServe), and have helped launch online communities, a search engine and a browser.
 
When I'm not working with entrepreneurs, I am thinking about working with entrepreneurs - and sometimes reading, writing for personal enjoyment, cooking, watching films, learning languages, hiking and traveling to places that require at least two airplanes to get there. I also make citizen's arrests for poor grammar and evasive language.
Bragging rights
I am the luckiest consultant in the world. I have worked with some terrific entrepreneurs to help launch several dozen start-ups. My work has won numerous awards. More importantly, many of my clients stay with me for years, bringing me into their next ventures. And often becoming friends.
