StreamSets Inc. expanded its streaming data product line to include tools that bring more data governance to big data applications where data is in motion, not just at rest. The StreamSets Data Protector works with the company's existing platform elements to automatically check that the vast quantities of new incoming data adhere to corporate governance policies.
Daragh O'Brien has a message for companies as the European Union's May 25th General Data Protection Regulation deadline approaches: GDPR is your friend. As head of the Castlebridge consultancy in Dublin, Ireland, he leads efforts to bring information quality and data governance to bear on data issues, including the issues of data privacy highlighted in GDPR. As a longtime advocate for information quality, he does not, in his words, "come to this party new."
The scale of HDFS continues to soar upward. For large social media and cloud providers, the size of Hadoop clusters is such that it is hard to test out this basic component of classic Hadoop at scale before roll outs. That is another one of those niggling issues that slows Hadoop adoption. At LinkedIn, the challenges of successfully making even small configuration changes across broad arrays of HDFS led a team to create Dynamometer.
"We have raw tools to do data streaming, but now we are starting to see higher-level apps that apply governance to that streaming data," - Dave Menninger, Ventana Research http://bit.ly/2Dv04zG via @sdatamanagement
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
