The Race is On: How Blockchain Will Change Governments

May 24 9:10pm Datafloq
We are at a global crossing point and if we manage to solve some of the problems that we have created in the past decades, the world can become a better place. When the internet was developed 28 years ago, the objective was to create a decentralised internet. However, somehow, we ended up with an internet which is in the hands of a few very powerful companies. As a result, the internet can go down for millions of people if one of those companies has a problem. This was the case a few months ago, when AWS experienced ‘a glitch’, or better know a typo, which brought down the internet for millions of users. Sir Tim Berners-Lee explained it eloquently during the Decentralised Web Summit in 2016: “The web was designed to be decentralised so that everybody could participate by having their own domain and having their own webserver and this hasn’t worked out. Instead, we’ve got the situation where individual personal data has been locked up in these silos.” - Sir Tim Berners-Lee Fortunately, a new technology has appeared that can solve the existing problems with the internet and bring it back to its origins; a decentralised web, where everyone can participate ...Read More on Datafloq...

Guest post by Tiffany Rowe If you have read any type of business news in the last few years, you’ve no doubt noticed that “big data” is one of the most important trends in every industry. Every day, millions of bytes of data are collected and stored – data that has the potential to provide keen insights to make businesses run more efficiently and profitably. That is if the data is properly analysed. In fact, some experts have even deemed big data “useless” unless someone has the skills to analyse it and draw conclusions from it. So, while even just a few years ago, the field of data analytics was relatively small, today it’s been called the “sexiest” career field [...] Continue Reading...

Data in Marketing - The Key to Future Strategy

May 21 2:41am Datafloq
What do you think when you read the first line of an unsolicited email that begins with the words, Dear Buyer , or Dear Manager ? If you have not heard from the company before, or, you are not the manager of anything, then it is even more peculiar. Whatever reputation that company was trying to develop, they've just lost it. Many will delete the email and just conclude that this is poor marketing - which is true.But what I think is that the company that sent me this email has not cleaned up its database lately. The reason behind these common marketing mistakes is simple. A deficit has developed between the marketing team and data expertise. Every year, the quality of our lead generation data is improving. Accuracy, strategic planning and conversion rates are all becoming more and more dependent on marketing where big data is having it impact.And yet, many organisations are not where they need to be regarding data management and application. This is most evident within the digital marketing sector. Data and Marketing A 2017 Data-driven Marketing Report by Jaywing bears this out.

The Amazing Disruption in Business Intelligence

May 19 10:59am Datafloq
The world of business intelligence used to be rather basic and only included things like basic surveys and employee evaluations. However, the space has gotten a major makeover in recent years with the growth of new disruptive technologies and strategies. That disruption has had huge effects in a number of areas and is changing how companies across all industries do business. Cloud-Based Analytics At its core, business intelligence is all about using data to make strategic decisions. The amount of data companies could store and use was traditionally limited by human capabilities and storage functions. However, the growth of cloud services has allowed companies to tap into vast amounts of data that is more complex than ever before. Use of the cloud also allows businesses to share that data seamlessly between various departments and remote employees. Instead of the old model of dividing up different aspects of business intelligence to various services and vendors, companies can now consolidate everything in the cloud to make it easy to store, analyze, and access whenever needed. This means the departments can share data and analytics to form a cohesive company goal and keep everyone on the same page. Big Data-Driven Marketing The use of the cloud and more ...Read More on Datafloq...

Why Data Governance is the Foundation of a Healthcare Big Data Strategy

May 18 10:56am Datafloq
Big data is everywhere, and many businesses are using it to improve their processes and strategies with great success. But one area where big data seems to be lagging is in healthcare. Many healthcare institutions want to adopt and expand their usage of big data, but in order to do so, they’ll need to focus on data governance. What is data governance? In a nutshell, data governance is what keeps data safe, secure, and up to an organization’s standards. Data is everywhere around us, and patients and consumers are used to being able to access the information they need almost as soon as they need it. However, that accessibility comes with a cost that many people don’t see—it puts much of the data at a greater risk of being hacked and stolen. Data governance works to fight that and to secure data by creating systems so that users can trust their data. In a comprehensive data governance program, users are responsible for creating quality data and using it in a secure and ethical manner with proper authorization. In healthcare, this often comes down to establishing data governance principles that ensure data is consistent and reliable. Why is it important? The overall goal of data governance ...Read More on Datafloq...

What is the Future of the Internet of Things in Health?

May 18 10:33am Datafloq
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad term referring to all pieces of technology that connect to the Internet and each other. A subset of the Internet of Things is the Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT). This refers to all pieces of Internet-connected technology that apply to the healthcare industry. The IoHT and development of new technologies in the healthcare field has made significant strides in improving patient care. It is not just about maintaining records and communicating with patients. If household appliances and business technology can be added to the IoT, then medical devices can as well.   A fully connected IoHT can enable practitioners to provide individually customized data-based treatments. If patient records are made readily available, the provider can view a comprehensive medical history cross-referenced with data-based treatment research successfully administered to similar patients. The more data available regarding current treatments, medications, and patient history, the better care the patient will receive. The IoHT will not only benefit patients on a personal level, but it will streamline the healthcare process by allowing practitioners to communicate and instantly access patient information with the appropriate permissions. Let’s say, for instance, that a patient resides in Arizona. However, while vacationing in California, ...Read More on Datafloq...
