Ορολογία της Ημέρας (T.O.D) – 22/6/2017 [Agile BI]

Agile BI is an approach to business intelligence (BI) that incorporates Agile software development methodologies to accelerate and improve the outcomes of BI initiatives.

When an organization embraces Agile BI, it generally embeds Agile software developers in the organization’s business intelligence team. As with all Agile initiatives, BI projects are broken down into a series of smaller projects that are planned for, developed, tested and rolled out on a continuous basis. This iterative approach facilitates continuous improvement and helps an organization adapt more quickly to changing market conditions and organizational goals.

Each iteration of an Agile BI project is planned and reviewed by both the software development team and the business owners who have requested work. The close collaboration between business and IT results in better communication, more clearly-defined goals and end results that more accurately meet expectations.

As with any Agile initiative, Agile BI tends to reduce total cost of change (TOC) and promote a culture that values reflection, accepts change and understands how to respond flexibly to shifts in organizational value. Because BI project iterations are released on a regular basis, changes to a business intelligence dashboard or data warehouse can be made functional in a matter of weeks or months, providing business users with the information they need to make data-driven decisions much faster than could be realized with a more traditional waterfall project approach.

Ορολογία της Ημέρας (T.O.D) – 29/1/2017 [Machine Learning]

Machine learning is an area of computer science and statistical modeling that allows a computer program to predict an outcome or make a decision without being explicitly programmed to do so.

Machine learning, which forms the basis for artificial intelligence (AI), is closely tied to data analytics and data mining programming. Continue reading

Ορολογία της Ημέρας (T.O.D) – 25/12/2016 [Cloud Orchestrator]

A cloud orchestrator, also called a cloud service orchestration platform, is software for managing interconnections and interactions among cloud-based and on-premises business units.

The goal of cloud orchestration is to automate the configuration, coordination and management of software and software interactions in a distributed computing environment so that intercomponent and interapplication links are correctly established and maintained. Continue reading

Ορολογία της Ημέρας (T.O.D) – 24/12/2016 [Glue Code]

glue code

Glue code, also called binding code, is custom-written programming that connects incompatible software components.

Although glue code can be written in the same language as the code it is connecting together, it is often written in a specialized interpreted scripting language for connecting system components called a glue language. Popular glue languages include include AppleScript, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, VBScript and PowerShell.

In addition to connecting disparate software modules, glue code can be used to tie together multiple systems. If an organization runs cloud services on both Amazon and Google, for example, glue code can be written to allow workloads and data flow between the two companies’ servers. Glue code is also useful for custom shell commands, application wrappers and rapid application prototyping.

Glue code is sometimes looked upon as a necessary evil because it can easily become the weakest link for service level agreements (SLAs) and, if not managed properly, become excessively complicated spaghetti code that negatively affects performance.

Μίνι Παρουσιάση – BI Tools – Ad Hoc Analysis

Στο post αυτό, που το περίμενα καιρό, θα συνεχίσουμε τις μίνι παρουσιάσεις των BI εργαλείων της αγοράς, ανά ομάδα χρηστικότητας και λειτουργίας (utility & functionality).

Οπότε παρακάτω σας παρουσιάζω τα εργαλεία εκείνα που έχουν την δυνατότητα να ικανοποιήσουν αιτήματα των χρηστών για queries που δεν είναι προκαθορισμένα (predefined) αλλά είναι “επί τη εμφανίσει” όπως λέμε, δηλαδή όταν και όποτε ζητηθούν (Ad Hoc).
