Today’s post comes from Joseph A. di Paolantonio, an industry expert working at the convergence of IoT with data management and analytics at DataArchon.com and the Boulder BI Brain Trust. Leveraging a career that started with renewable energy research in graduate school and industry, developing risk assessment models and algorithms for aerospace systems, and managing teams for enterprise data warehousing, BI and data science, Joseph is defining sensor analytics ecosystems to bring value from the IoT.
What’s IOT All About
We have been asking what the IoT is all about for a very long time. Since Kevin Ashton first coined the phrase in 1999, and perhaps even since Nikola Tesla first played with a remote control boat in 1898. For many, the simple act of connecting a device, not a computer, not a router, to the Internet is enough. But even if everything around us, in work, at home, for business, for play, was connected..Does this make the Internet of Things? Does this fulfill much of the hype or any of the stories surrounding the IoT? Not at all.

The future for big data processing lies in the adoption of commercial Hadoop distributions and their supposed deployments. The macro use case for big data are data lakes, which are massive amounts of structured and unstructured data that do not carry the same restrictions as traditional data warehouses. They store everything, including every type of data, any volume, any scope of data that may be used by enterprise data users, for any reason.
Despite the power and potential of data lakes, many enterprises continue to approach this technology with the same data integration approaches and mechanisms they’ve used in the past, none of which work well. How can we tap into the power of the data lake? Continue reading “The Data Lake Data Integration Challenge”
Have you fallen for the API lie? The API economy implies everything easily connects and simply needs to be governed and managed. But do the data integration pains simply go away? Find out in this Intellyx White Paper written by Jason Bloomberg. Continue reading “Don’t Fall for the API Lie”
Here at SnapLogic, we launched our very first Summer Internship program. This summer we employed five interns, each working in a different area of the company: Rakesh Dammalapati, a Professional Services Intern; Dave Gan, an Engineering Intern; Gracie Walters, a Human Resources (HR) Intern; Michael Westra, a Business Development (BD) Intern; and Natalie Wiser, a Marketing Intern.
All five of these interns got to be part of an up-and-coming startup company in Silicon Valley. They not only gained that well desired real world experience, but the internship also came with a lot of profitable perks. The interns were given their own managers in which they were able to establish a professional relationship that taught them about the company’s values of innovation, intensity and integrity. They were also given the opportunity to meet with some of the top executives of the company who shared details of their past career paths. Each executive shared valuable stories, advice and resources that will give the interns a huge advantage when they start making decisions about their own careers.
With the summer coming to an end, we asked our interns to reflect on their past 12 weeks spent here at SnapLogic. Here is what they said:
