    Title: Achieving Buzzword Compliance
    Sub-title: Data Architecture Language and Vocabulary
    By (author): David C Hay
    ISBN10-13: 1634623703 : 9781634623704
    The Data Architecture field is rife with terms that have become fashionable. Some of the terms began with very specific, specialised, meanings -- but as their use spread, they lost the precision of their technical definitions and become, well, buzzwords. A buzzword is a word or expression from a particular subject area that has become fashionable because it has been used a lot. Compliance is the obeying of an accepted principle or instruction that states the way things are or should be done. The assignment is to take buzzwords and follow rules to use them correctly. We cut through the hype to arrive at buzzword compliance -- the state where you fully understand the words that in fact have real meaning in the data architecture industry. This book will rationalise the various ways all these terms are defined. Of necessity, the book must address all aspects of describing an enterprise and its data management technologies. This includes a wide range of subjects, from entity/relationship modeling, through the semantic web, to database issues like relational and beyond relational (NoSQL) approaches. In each case, the definitions for the subject are meant to be detailed enough to make it possible to understand basic principles -- while recognising that a full understanding will require consulting the sources where they are more completely described. The book’s Glossary contains a catalogue of definitions and its Bibliography contains a comprehensive set of references.

    By (author): Dr Wade A McNair
    ISBN10-13: 1634624378 : 9781634624374
    Shift happens -- Proverb. Every day, every person experiences changes that impact how we live our lives. Some changes we see as helping us, others we see as hindering us. These shifts happen in our home life, our work life, and everywhere in between. Simply put, AdaptAbility is the skill we use to adjust to these new conditions and situations. As we grow and evolve, we realize that building our AdaptAbility will engage, equip, and empower us to live better lives. When shift happens, the challenge (and the choice) to adapt is yours -- will you be ready?

    Title: After Action Review
    Sub-title: Continuous Improvement Made Easy
    By (author): Artie Mahal
    ISBN10-13: 1634623231 : 9781634623230
    Master the After Action Review (AAR) to improve the outcome of any personal or professional activity. From the beginning of time, humans have survived and thrived by learning from their experiences – both good and bad – and then tweaked their actions for better results next time. This continual quest for improvement stems from the difference between what was and what could be. Even if we're not consciously aware of it, we're constantly seeking improvement in this very same way. If we turn to this analysis in a more intentional and methodical way, with an eye towards continuous improvement (CI), then next time around the outcomes can be more rewarding and desirable. After Action Review (AAR) is a continuous improvement approach for reflecting on the work of a group or team. Learn how to apply both informal and formal AAR approaches. Along with a complete walkthrough, the book includes resources and materials you can use in your work right now. For example, the Group Insights template will help you distinguish "likes" from "wishes," and the Planning Template will show you how to optimize the time spent during the AAR. Chapter 1 covers basic facilitation skills needed to conduct an AAR including active listening, questioning, information gathering and analysis, public speaking, presenting, intervening, and managing group dynamics. Chapter 2 explains the AAR in detail including its value proposition and frameworks. Chapter 3 explores the informal AAR and Chapter 4 the formal AAR.

    Title: AI for Data Science
    Sub-title: Artificial Intelligence Frameworks and Functionality for Deep Learning, Optimization, and Beyond
    By (author): Dr Zacharias Voulgaris Ph.D., Yunus Bulut
    ISBN10-13: 1634624092 : 9781634624091
    Master the approaches and principles of Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, and apply them to Data Science projects with Python and Julia code. Aspiring and practicing Data Science and AI professionals, along with Python and Julia programmers, will practice numerous AI algorithms and develop a more holistic understanding of the field of AI, and will learn when to use each framework to tackle projects in our increasingly complex world. The first two chapters introduce the field, with Chapter 1 surveying Deep Learning models and Chapter 2 providing an overview of algorithms beyond Deep Learning, including Optimization, Fuzzy Logic, and Artificial Creativity. The next chapters focus on AI frameworks; they contain data and Python and Julia code in a provided Docker, so you can practice. Chapter 3 covers Apache’s MXNet, Chapter 4 covers TensorFlow, and Chapter 5 investigates Keras. After covering these Deep Learning frameworks, we explore a series of optimization frameworks, with Chapter 6 covering Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Chapter 7 on Genetic Algorithms (GAs), and Chapter 8 discussing Simulated Annealing (SA). Chapter 9 begins our exploration of advanced AI methods, by covering Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs). Chapter 10 discusses optimization ensembles and how they can add value to the Data Science pipeline. Chapter 11 contains several alternative AI frameworks including Extreme Learning Machines (ELMs), Capsule Networks (CapsNets), and Fuzzy Inference Systems (FIS). Chapter 12 covers other considerations complementary to the AI topics covered, including Big Data concepts, Data Science specialization areas, and useful data resources to experiment on. A comprehensive glossary is included, as well as a series of appendices covering Transfer Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Autoencoder Systems, and Generative Adversarial Networks. There is also an appendix on the business aspects of AI in data science projects, and an appendix on how to use the Docker image to access the book’s data and code. The field of AI is vast, and can be overwhelming for the newcomer to approach. This book will arm you with a solid understanding of the field, plus inspire you to explore further.

    Reviews:
    "John and Shawn bring decades of hands on experience helping clients understand where and how data and analytics can deliver business value and market differentiation. The authors do not get bogged down in the technology tail-chase, but instead provides clear and actionable guidance on how organizations need to embrace a “business first” approach when considering how to exploit the business potential of big data. Like I ask my clients, “How effective is your organization at leveraging data and analytics to power your business?” It’s a question this book will help you to address." -- Bill Schmarzo, CTO Big Data, Dell Technologies Services
    "One could argue—and probably easily win the argument—that there has been more change in analytics over the past ten years than at any time in the history of the world. For that reason alone, a book like this one that provides a clear-eyed assessment of the state of the art in analytics is enormously valuable." -- Thomas H Davenport
    "We are moving into an era where information is potentially more valuable than tangible things or services. Organizations who connect information with their product will have a huge advantage, and conversely organizations that miss this transformation will find themselves increasingly un-competitive. No longer just something for the Information Technologists or Data Scientists to deal with, everyone who makes things or serves customers in some way needs to understand how people interact with their product or service in a very granular way. This book will help people in business and government understand the power of data analytics technology and how some of the tools available can be applied to a wide range of applications." -- John Swainson, former President, Dell Software Group

    Title: And People?
    Sub-title: Why Are Managers’ Cars the Most Important Asset in Every Organization?
    By (author): Ivica Vrancic
    ISBN10-13: 1634620771 : 9781634620772
    What? Another management book? You will find And People? to be refreshingly different. Its Eastern European perspective, enhanced with best practices and research studies, will reveal the secrets for successfully leading and managing people. Part textbook, part handbook, each word is crafted based upon author Ivica Vrancic's 20 years of experience in management and consulting, which includes working with hundreds of managers from all hierarchy levels. And People? dares to ask why so many managers spend more time, resources, and consideration on their company cars than the real greatest asset of any business: people. Early chapters explore motivation and organization culture; later, Vrancic examines the challenge of selecting the right people for your organization and developing those people to maximize their strengths. Through practical real-world examples built on respected theoretical foundations, readers will gain new insight into the dual role of both manager and leader. And no, a manager and a leader are not the same thing.

    Title: Audacity to Spy
    Sub-title: How Government, Business & Hackers Rob Us of Privacy
    By (author): Catherine Nolan, Ashley M Wilson JD
    ISBN10-13: 1935504797 : 9781935504795
    Ever get the feeling you are being watched? The thieves that steal identities are using cutting-edge, high-tech tools that can take one fact from a social media site, another from an online travel survey, a third from a purchase made via the internet and even access highly confidential medical records. Little by little they piece together your buying habits, your religious and school affiliations, the names of your family and pets, your political views, your driving habits, the places you have vacationed, and much, much more. This is not science fiction and this is not the future, this is what is happening to each and every one of us now - today. And although the vast majority of adults say they are concerned about providing personal information online, nearly 1/3 say they have never used a privacy setting on their computer, never inquired about the charities to whom they donate their money, never worried about someone accessing their medical information and never thought twice about giving a financial institution their social security number over the internet. The Audacity to Spy, written by an attorney with an interest in privacy laws and legislation and her grandmother who is an experienced Information Analyst, reveals the ways in which your identity and personal data have been stolen by various sources. Yes, you should be concerned about the NSA and other government agencies having your phone logs and emails; but you should worry more about the insidious data brokers that are collecting information about you every time you log on to your laptop, use your cell phone, access an app, or use your GPS. Companies are collecting a variety of data about you, combining it with location information, and using it to both personalise their own services and to sell to other advertisers for behavioural marketing. Law enforcement agencies are tracking your car and insurance companies are installing devices to monitor your driving. Clerks are making copies of your credit cards. And if that wasn't enough, the FBI has reported that hackers have been discovered embedding malicious software in two million computers, opening a virtual door for criminals to rifle through users' valuable personal and financial information. More than warning you about the ways your data can be stolen, at the end of each chapter are suggestions for limiting the amount of personal data that is available to be seized and divulged. Can you completely cut off the flow of information about yourself? The answer is no, not completely - there is already too much data out there and increasingly sophisticated ways to obtain bits and pieces. But knowing how it is collected, and by whom, gives you the power to control sensitive information and determine how much of your life you wish to expose to those more than willing to exploit it.
    About The Author:
    Catherine Nolan has an MBA in Business Administration and 25 years' experience as an Information Analyst. When she became a victim of identity fraud through the hacking of her credit card information, she began extensive investigation into credit card and identity theft. Her research led to this book which describes the many ways personal information is being compromised and how the average person can protect themselves and their digital assets.
    Ashley M. Wilson, JD, is an Attorney at Law practicing in Illinois and Wisconsin. She is a graduate of the University of Illinois and received her law degree at Marquette University. As an attorney she became interested in the growing threat to privacy and the lack of legal protection afforded to individuals by the government and our court system.

    Title: Blockchainopoly
    Sub-title: How Blockchain Changes the Rules of the Game
    By (author): Steve Hoberman
    ISBN10-13: 1634621727 : 9781634621724
    Learn how blockchain works, where to use it within your organization, and how it will impact data management. This book contains three parts: 1.Explanation. Part I will explain will explain the concepts underlying blockchain. A precise and concise definition is provided, distinguishing blockchain from blockchain architecture. Variations of blockchain are explored based upon the concepts of purpose and scope. 2. Usage. Now that you understand blockchain, where do you use it? The reason for building a blockchain application must include at least one of these five drivers: transparency, streamlining, privacy, permanence, or distribution. Usages based upon these five drivers are shown for finance, insurance, government, manufacturing and retail, utilities, healthcare, nonprofit, and media. Process diagrams will illustrate each usage through inputs, guides, enablers, and outputs. Also examined are the risks of applying these usages, such as cooperation, incentives, and change. 3.Impact. Now that you know where to use blockchain, how will it impact our existing IT (Information Technology) environment? Part III explores how blockchain will impact data management. The Data Management Body of Knowledge 2nd Edition (DAMA-DMBOK2) is an amazing book that defines the data management field along with the often complex relationships that exist between the various data management disciplines. Learn how blockchain will impact each of these 11 disciplines: Data Governance, Data Architecture, Data Modeling and Design, Data Storage and Operations, Data Security, Data Integration and Interoperability, Document and Content Management, Reference and Master Data, Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence, Metadata Management, and Data Quality Management. Once you understand blockchain concepts and principles, you can position yourself, department, and organization to leverage distributed ledger technology.

    Title: Building the Agile Database
    Sub-title: How to Build a Successful Application Using Agile without Sacrificing Data Management
    By (author): Larry Burns
    ISBN10-13: 1935504150 : 9781935504153
    Is fast development the enemy of good development? Not necessarily. Agile development requires that databases are designed and built quickly enough to meet fast-based delivery schedules - but in a way that also delivers maximum business value and reuse. How can these requirements both be satisfied? This book, suitable for practitioners at all levels, will explain how to design and build enterprise-quality high-value databases within the constraints of an Agile project. Starting with an overview of the business case for good data management practices, the book defines the various stakeholder groups involved in the software development process, explains the economics of software development (including "time to market" versus "time to money"), and describes an approach to Agile database development based on the five PRISM principles. This book explains how to work with application developers and other stakeholders, examines critical issues in Agile Development and Data Management, and describes how developers and data professionals can work together to make Agile projects successful while delivering maximum value data to the enterprise. The book will serve as an excellent reference for application developers, data managers, DBAs, project managers, Scrum Masters and IT managers looking to get more value from their development efforts.
