How Computer Databases Work: Overcoming the Black Box Mentality: A Book of Revelations

by Steffy Sota

I am a ghost writer.As far as the world is concerned, I died on June 7, 1954. I died young, too young. So now I have been given a second chance to live. To you I am a ghost; as far as I am concerned, I am fully alive.Despite my untimely demise, I have kept up with the computer revolution I started. How Computer Databases Work: Overcoming the Black Box Mentality is my attempt to make a complex subject understandable to the lay person.

I like to explain things in Plain English with clear illustrations.I have been told of the urgency of my task. Key management personnel today accept on blind faith what they are being told about their computers. The technologies of engineering and scienc...

The Culture of Big Data

by Mike Barlow

Technology does not exist in a vacuum. In the same way that a plant needs water and nourishment to grow, technology needs people and process to thrive and succeed. Culture (i.e., people and process) is integral and critical to the success of any new technology deployment or implementation. Big data is not just a technology phenomenon. It has a cultural dimension. It's vitally important to remember that most people have not considered the immense difference between a world seen through the lens of a traditional relational database system and a world seen through the lens of a Hadoop Distributed File System.This paper broadly describes the cultural challenges that accompany efforts to create and sustain big data initiatives in an evolving world whose data management processes are rooted firm...
