Top 14 Security Certifications in 2019

Are you looking at security certifications? Certification in the areas of Cybersecurity, IT Security, and Computer Security do not have as many straight forward options in comparison to Windows or Linux certifications, or even cloud certifications with Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, or others.

Microsoft xCloud: Azure Powered Game Streaming

Microsoft is building a game streaming network to unlock console quality gaming on any device. Microsoft has realized that not all gamers are going to buy an Xbox. Instead of focusing on building games that can only be played on the Xbox game console, Microsoft is working on a cloud based game streaming service where anyone, on any device, anywhere in the world can play games that would traditionally be made available only to Xbox gamers. The service Microsoft is building is called Microsoft xCloud; and it’s being built on top of Microsoft Azure. Microsoft xCloud streaming to a smartphone, with game play using an Xbox controller. Cloud Considerations When building a game streaming service, there are many things to consider around game quality and usability. For instance, the latency needs to be low enough that a button click doesn’t take too long to register. Imagine firing a weapon in an...

A Digestible Action Plan for Startups’ Cybersecurity Success

It’s never too early for a start-up business to begin to strategize and operationalize its cybersecurity goals–in fact, it’s a necessary prerequisite for high-yield growth. And yet, with all the high velocity activity and rapid decision-making that characterizes most startups’ early existence, it can be easy to overlook some of the critical prophylactic steps that must be taken to safeguard a nascent company’s value potential. The importance of this cannot be overstated, given that the harm to a startup’s reputation and brand name can be existential if proper controls are not in place. A recent Forbes CommunityVoice  article  by start-up founder Isaac Kohen offers some helpful starting points for businesses of all sizes to keep in mind. The major takeaways are summarized below, with additional perspective added. Growing a CyberSecurity Culture from Day One. A critical reminder for all is that cybersecurity is not at heart an infrastructure issue—it’s a cultural one....

How Retailers Use Artificial Intelligence to Innovate Customer Experience and Enhance Operations

Digitalization influences how businesses operate and build and maintain relationships with customers. With the internet open 24/7, consumers can save time and shop online at their convenience. In 2017, global eCommerce sales accounted for 10.2 percent of all retail sales ($2.3 trillion US). This figure is projected to reach 17.5 percent in 2021. Revenue from eCommerce sales is expected to grow to $4.88 trillion US. eCommerce share of total retail sales worldwide from 2015 to 2021. Source: Statista Physical stores still have the lion’s share of sales, but the growing demand for online experiences shouldn’t be ignored. To remain competitive, retailers must allow in-store customers to enjoy the benefits of online shopping. Fast checkout, personalized recommendations, or instant access to customer care at any time are a few services that can be implemented with the help of artificial intelligence. For this article, we discussed current and potential applications of AI in retail, as well as...

Data Quality Case Studies: How We Saved Clients Real Money Thanks to Data Validation

Machine learning models grow more powerful every week, but the earliest models and the most recent state-of-the-art models share the exact same dependency: data quality. The maxim “garbage in – garbage out” coined decades ago, continues to apply today. Recent examples of data verification shortcomings abound, including JP Morgan/Chase’s  2013 fiasco  and this lovely list of  Excel snafus .  Brilliant people make data collection and entry errors all of the time, and that isn’t just our opinion (although we have plenty of personal experience with it); Kaggle  did a survey  of data scientists and found that “dirty data” is the number one barrier for data scientists.   Before we create a machine learning model, before we create a Shiny R dashboard, we evaluate the dataset for a project.  Data validation is a complicated multi-step process, and maybe it’s not as sexy as talking about the latest  ML models, but as the data science consultants of...

Lightweight but effective way of documenting a group of Jupyter Notebooks

My app Qubiter has a folder full of Jupyter notebooks (27 of them, in fact). Opening a notebook takes a short while, which is slightly annoying. I wanted to give Qubiter users the ability to peek inside all the notebooks at once, without having to open all of them. Qubiter’s new SUMMARY.ipynb notebook allows the user to do just that. SUMMARY.ipynb scans the directory in which it lives to find all Jupyter notebooks (other than itself) in that directory. It then prints for every notebook it finds (1) a hyperlink to the notebook, and (2) the first cell (which is always markdown) of the notebook. This way you can read a nice, automatically generated summary of all the notebooks without having to open all of them. If you find a notebook that you want to explore further, you can simply click on its link to open it. Here is the code...

Predicting Hotel Cancellations with Support Vector Machines and SARIMA

Hotel cancellations can cause issues for many businesses in the industry. Not only is there the lost revenue as a result of the customer cancelling, but this can also cause difficulty in coordinating bookings and adjusting revenue management practices. Data analytics can help to overcome this issue, in terms of identifying the customers who are most likely to cancel – allowing a hotel chain to adjust its marketing strategy accordingly. To investigate how machine learning can aid in this task, the ExtraTreesClassifer, logistic regression, and support vector machine models were employed in Python to determine whether cancellations can be accurately predicted with this model. For this example, both hotels are based in Portugal. The Algarve Hotel dataset available from Science Direct was used to train and validate the model, and then the logistic regression was used to generate predictions on a second dataset for a hotel in Lisbon. Data Processing At...

What is a Customer Data Platform?

Customer Data Platforms have been on the rise in the CRM market in terms of a set of capabilities to manage customer data. This article takes a look at this emerging customer need. CDP as a sub-domain of CRM To put it simply, the Customer Data Platform (CDP) is an emerging sub-domain of CRM. The need for a centralised set of services, KPI’s and decision support tooling for omni-channel customer operations has been on the rise for a few years, taking various forms, and sometimes demanding more than is currently available from existing customer data management toolsets in the Identity and Marketing domains. Given the changes in customer behaviour in terms of online brand engagement and transactions, and the resulting changes to the usage of the customer records in traditional CRM systems, the need for this defined product category has emerged as somewhere to bundle all these requirements and desired capabilities,...

Infusing RPA with Machine Learning: A Powerful Medley

by Ivona Crnoja and Pierre Col Robotic Process Automation or RPA is probably this years’ most hyped term in the digital world – as you would say in France: RPA is currently “en vogue”. And that’s for a good reason. RPA is an innovative technology, automating business processes using software robots, that perform tedious and repetitive tasks – error susceptibility equals zero. Imagine the magic! Thanks to robots the human employee does no longer have to waste time on nerve-wrecking, time-consuming and manual activities. The result is relieved and happy employees, with extra time for tasks that really matter, improved work results, adding an extra pinch of value to your employees’ daily hustle. No wonder, RPA has already proven to be an intelligent and efficient driver to push digital transformation in enterprises, by increasing productivity, reducing cost, and ultimately leading to revenue and business growth. Hence, RPA is more than just...

Some Thoughts About ERP: The Devil Is Not so Black as It Is Painted

Under the pressure of such a keen interest in enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, I decided to share my impressions. Let’s try to understand who, why, and for how much money needs the ERP, whether it is necessary to regulate something, and where is that flexibility that ERP supposedly does not have. When SAP, as Wikipedia informs us , took the first steps in 1972 what was its first main function? Yes, accounting and payroll. And still these days, many organizations start their SAP journey with the aim of improving accounting. Everything is relatively clear here. What does any company do? The company makes money. That is, everything that happens is reflected in financial records. The new money came – we paid the bill. Raw materials arrived – new products left the warehouse. This scheme is known since the XIII century when Italians started to use it, long before SAP. When...
