Here isContinue reading “A Questionnaire for Agilists”

SCRUM / Sprint Sequencing

Data and application processing evolve. Each of these application components starts at a certain stage in their life cycle and change as the rest of the application’s capabilities mature.

Data’s After Life

When we are born, a birth certificate is usually created with our Name, Date, Weight, Length, Parents names, location, etc..  It is also at this point that our Health Record begins tracking injections, infections, operations, procedures, prescriptions, reactions… When / If we join or are entered into some religious group, records are kept of theContinue reading “Data’s After Life”

With Great Data, comes Great Opportunity

There once was a line in a movie: “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.” My take on that is that the more Data we receive, the more Opportunity we get to use that data. Big Data, the Internet of Things, Business Intelligence and the current evolution in newer, faster, fresher data puts responsibility and opportunityContinue reading “With Great Data, comes Great Opportunity”
