White Paper: Mosaic Data Science
Data scientists are a scarce commodity, and are likely to remain so for years to come. At the same time, data science can create a substantial competitive advantage for early adopters who make the best use of their scarce data-science resources.
data scientists often struggle to recognize that every data-science project is an optimization problem.iii In business the objective function is usually expected value, but sometimes expected value is and should be traded away to avoid the possibility of catastrophic losses.
Data science has a long, highly technical learning curve. An inexperienced team with limited background has two ways to shorten its learning curve. The first is training. For example, Coursera offers a series of online classes designed to train data scientists in specific computational techniques and tools.
This paper explains how management can make the most of data-science resources and opportunities, to achieve data-driven competitive advantage.
Skype for Business is fast becoming the most widely-used single vendor unified communications platform. However, as the enterprise implements Skype for Business, it hits a seemingly impossible barrier, realizing complete video communication and collaboration. There is no easy or elegant way for existing video conferencing equipment to seamlessly integrate with Skype for Business. This whitepaper addresses what the available migration strategies for video calling and conferencing are, and how interoperability between Skype for Business and professional video systems can be achieved for inter and intra-company calls. It highlights: How to bridge the gap between Skype for Business and legacy H.323 meeting room systems on a scheduled meet-me basis ‘Do nothing’ strategy- Both the video conferencing rooms and Skype for Business are maintained in parallel How to achieve direct calling and conferencing for all, while maintaining current legacy room systems, registered directly to the video cloud
