Analyzing the Question - How Covered Are We?

When your career hinges on ensuring coverage over regulatory compliance, you will appreciate the common curse that is had when asking, "how covered are we?". The answer is never straight, nor simple, and generally results in wondering why you asked to begin with - ultimately it’s a judgment call. Readers may find some consolation knowing that there exists a large group of red-eyed, late-night, complex report-reading types that must make the same difficult decision, and seek to ensure… Continue

Data Mining with the Naked Eye - Looking for Contributors (new book)

We also show that simple but smart reporting, careful metric and data selection, when combined with appropriate visuals, provide higher efficiency than sophisticated statistical models. This is true even with the largest data sets, when data is seen through the eyes of a sharp data miner with a strong… Continue

A case for Business Intelligence in Aviation

How are low-cost airlines faring in India today? "Low-cost" airlines? Doesn't that sound like an oxymoron? Yes it is, indeed. Low cost airlines are practically non-existent nowadays. It's been five years since the launch of so-called low cost airlines but today it is literally bleeding to death. Darwinism has propelled the airlines to its next stage in evolution. Value carrier is the in-thing now.





Go-Air, which was till recently, a low-cost carrier offering fares in the range… Continue

Applying Wisdom of Alexander the Great to Business Intelligence

The title at first glance might beg the question "What does Alexander have to do with Business Intelligence?", which is quite a natural reaction. But what is unnatural and invisible to many is the perspicacity that one can derive from the wisdom of Alexander to solve problems, not necessarily problems in BI implementation alone, but any problem for that matter.



The discussion here, though, shall be focused on the application of leadership process of Alexander to successful management… Continue

Cloud Computing - Methodology Notes, by Paco Nathan

A couple companies ago, one of my mentors -- Jack Olson, author of Data Quality -- taught us team leaders to follow a formula for sizing software development groups. Of course this is simply a guidance, but it makes sense:





9:3:1 for dev/test/doc



In other words, a 3:1 ratio of developers to testers, and then a 9:1 ratio of developers to technical writers. Also figure in how a group that size (13) needs a manager/architect and some project management.
