Get Excited for a New World of Data Analytics with Corterix

2017-05-25

Large sums of data can be difficult to gather, store, and decipher. Luckily, [url=http://corterix.com]Corterix[/url] is fit to do that for you. The big data market isn't providing usable data to it's customers so Corterix is determined to store all forms of unstructured data into a SQL database and transform it into usable, structured data without being disruptive to the industry. Traditional formats were built on a search platform, not a big data platform. Current versions have merely been pieced together over time which has created more of a work around environment than a unified and easy to use platform. This is where Corterix is different because they are built on a new and radically different concept. The platform has been engineered from scratch to swiftly ingest data of all types as well as index, compress and load it into a single, easily accessible SQL database. And the storage capacity is amazing. Corterix is able to store up to 64 terabytes of data in a single cell of a database and can also store other formats such as videos. Data is constantly growing and as it gets larger, it needs larger databases to query and Corterix can provide that service. Check out their website [url=http://corterix.com]here[/url] for more information. [Collision2017Sponsor]

Fantastic Visuals Made From Hidden Data with Cinchapi

2017-05-24

Data, data everywhere but not a drop of reason. As small and large business owners alike are looking to capitalize on the increasing amount of data that is available to them from multiple sources, it becomes increasingly difficult to properly analyze the figures to actually increase profitability. Let's face it, it's sometimes difficult enough to even try to figure out the raw data, much less turn it into something useable. [url=http://cinchapi.com]The Cinchapi Data Platform[/url] has found a way to, as they put it, take your data "from cluster to clarity" by combining machine learning with human intelligence. Their approach makes it easy and intuitive to work with real time or conventional data for maximum results. The software is able to decipher data from any source (including IoT) and quickly does the hard work of transforming it into usable information for your team to review without delay, while those conditions still exist. This enables businesses to make changes in design and process at the right times. In other words, strike while the iron is hot rather than resort to using dated information when it's too late to capitalize on those conditions. Cinchapi streams, examines, and stores definitive data generated in real-time, as well as from conventional, legacy, and proprietary databases and sources. Other features include a context aware, conversational interface; customized visualizations, data prep reduction and more.

Microsoft Surface Laptop and Windows 10 S - Episode 138

2017-05-21

This week, Avram Piltch discusses one of the topics we have missed over the past few weeks: Microsoft announcements. First is the Surface Laptop, not to be confused with the Surface Book. The new Laptop is not a convertible, but instead a traditional laptop. It comes in a variety of configurations, including color choices, something new in the Surface family. Next up is Windows 10 S, the new edition of Windows intended for schools. This edition is essentially a full version of Windows 10, with the limitation of not being able to install software from outside of the Windows Store. This allows for a greater sense of security for school officials, without any issues from students. Microsoft will use Windows 10 S to compete with Chromebooks, which have recently begun to infest schools because of perceived security.

Best and Worst Laptop Brands 2017 - Episode 136

2017-04-09

This week, Avram Piltch discusses LAPTOP Magazine's 2017 [url=http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/laptop-brand-ratings]Best and Worst Laptop Brands[/url] results. While he is not able to discuss who took the top few spots, he was able to talk about one company who fell from grace this year: Apple. In the past 7 years, Apple has always taken the top spot. This year, the company fell not one place, but to a tie for 5th place. Considering in 2016 only 10 brands were rated, falling to a tie for 5th is beyond collapse. Avram discusses how their rankings work, what went wrong for Apple this year, and what went right for some of the others.
