" #IBM & MSFT 2 Offer Greater Choice in Hybrid Cloud" ( ) JK--Key solutions 2 B available on each other's public clouds

A7: #makedatawork Streamlining access to data-driven insights needs a cognitive-computing fabric to guide your explorations--e.g., #Watson

A7: #makedatawork Streamlining access to clean/relevant data also involves giving users access to powerful data-discovery tools.

A7: #makedatawork Streamlining access to refined/relevant data should involve convergence onto a strategic cloud #datarefinery platform.

A6: #makedatawork IT focuses on setting policies around data sourcing, security. governance, and access in self-svc cloud-analytics era

A6: #makedatawork IT's role shifts toward providing ctr of excellence to help business analysts collab with data scientists on biz problems

A6: #makedatawork In era of self-svc data access, analytics, DW, & refinement, IT's role becomes implement/admin foundation cloud platform

A5 application integration too - need to plug refinery services into apps and biz processes #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

A5 We've focused on access to the data. Now it needs to be governed--quality controls, privacy, etc. #makedatawork

A5 machine learning - refineries should learn and get smarter as biz people use data #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

A5: #makedatawork Data cant be clean if stewardship absent. #Datarefinery must enforce cleansing/enhance policies defined by data stewards

A5: #makedatawork Data can't be accessible to all if #datarefinery layer doesn't delivery it downstream. Landing/staging must be transient

A5: #makedatawork Data not relevant without context. Hence, metadata needs to be refined for downstream delivery & contextual insights
0 replies 1 retweet 0 favorites

A4: #makedatawork Agile #datarefinery also needs to orchestrate complex workflows between/among sources and downstream data apps/platforms

A4: #makedatawork #Datarefinery for #bigdata needs connectors into structured & unstruct sources + support for batch & real-time latencies

A4: #makedatawork #Datarefinery core capabilities include integration with sources, archives, data warehouses, & downstream analytic apps

A4: #makedatawork Critical capabs for #datarefinery: acquire, extract, aggregate, profile,transform, match, merge, cleanse, enhance, load

A3 important 2 think about refinery from pov of biz user - it's about getting data & automatic refinement #makedatawork

A3: #makedatawork Refining is process that happens every step o way 2 insight/action. #Datarefinery is where it happens 1st & in high-volume

A3 and on development PaaS so developers build data-ready apps - stop the problem at the source #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

Q3 Data refinery sits by the lake/makes the data in the lake accessible to other parts of infrastructure #makedatawork

A3 plugged into every business application as the easy button to get data #makedatawork

A3 bolted on to a Hadoop data lake as the @rwang0 brita filter to clean data before wide usage #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

A3: #makedatawork #BigData pipeline (data -> insight) tiers: source -> #Datarefinery -> DW -> mart/access -> end user.

A3: #makedatawork #DataRefinery fits into enteprise data architecture in data acquisition, landing, staging, preprocessing, cleaning tier

RT @DCorrigan: A2: A refinery definitely adds value - relevant data in biz users hands. #makedatawork

RT @rwang0: A2 MyPOV: think of #datarefinery as the Brita Filter for your #datalake #makedatawork

A2: #makedatawork Data refinement is no gimmick: it's the core of every data integration/cleansing tool/job. Acquire, land, stage, transform

A2: #makedatawork Many terms in big-data lexicon metaphors: warehouse, mart, etc. "Refinery" alludes to distill of value from data reservoir

A1 I think it's about augmenting systems with new additions like a data lake to land and understand all data #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

MyPOV: on Q1 the big issues is to make sure your #datalake does not turn into a #dataswamp #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

A1 new "paradigms" still require key foundational data constructs #makedatawork
0 replies 3 retweets 0 favorites
jameskobielus retweeted

A1 those new systems like a data lake create new needs - like taking raw data & refining it b4 sharing with existing systems #makedatawork
jameskobielus retweeted

A1: #makedatawork If you associate reservoir w/ specific optimized platforms, eg Hadoop, then it's clear that they're not for all use cases

A1: #makedatawork IMHO, metaphor "reservoir" makes more sense than "lake." Big data is resource to be held in reserve and tapped when needed

A1: #makedatawork A data lake/reservoir is primarily for data explore and/or refinement. Trad'l platforms play other roles (hub, mart, etc.)

A1: #makedatawork Paradigms don't replace plaforms. Only better platforms can. Data "lake"/"reservoir" platforms supplement, don't replace
