Big Data Definitive Guide for iOS and Android now live

30/09/2014 by


V3 has teamed up with Intel to produce a free Big Data Definitive Guide available for the iPhone and iPad, Android devices and also on the web.

The amount of information being created continues to rise at a rapid pace, with many organisations struggling to work out how they can take advantage of this wave of data.

Along with official corporate systems, firms are faced with new pockets of data – social media channels and instant messages to name a couple. But the information is stored in such a disparate range of apps and websites, that getting a handle on it is a huge challenge.Big data could be the answer to these problems. With big data technology, firms are able to feed in all this disparate data, crunch it, measure it and manage it, and receive useful nuggets of insight about their business, their customers, or their competitors.

But to get the best out of big data systems, firms need to make sure their IT infrastructure is up to the task of managing such huge volumes of data. And it’s not enough to just have the right technology in place, there’s also a need for a whole new generation of workers: data scientists who marry the required analytical skills with technical nous.

To help you wade through this complex landscape, we’ve put together the Big Data Definitive Guide.

Covering everything you need to know on the topic – from why Hadoop is such a big deal for big data through to the storage requirements for unstructured data and how firms can keep their big data green – this guide is all you need to start taking advantage of the big data revolution in your organisation.

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...


Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
