What are Data containers and how are they used?

A file, say a power point presentation that you’ve created works flawlessly on your computer. The minute you open it elsewhere, glitches appear and your presentation starts looking strange or not function at all. Your nicely designed slide looks unintelligible, simply because the target computer doesn’t have the right font.

Life Cycle Management Strategy for Very Large Data Warehouses

Jim Barksdale, former Netscape CEO once said, “If we have data, let’s look at data. If all we have are opinions, let’s go with mine.”In this modern era of data, Data Warehouses are key to decision making in most of the businesses. Maintaining these systems in good health is very critical to the success of an enterprise. Every business makes decisions based on historical data that is specific to a period of time. Determining the rate at which data is refreshed in these systems, expiry date of data in the data warehouse & strategies on handling expired data in the data warehouse are collectively known as Information Life Cycle Management strategy (ILM) for Data Warehouse. A standard definition of ILM refers to – a process for managing information through its lifecycle, from conception until disposal, in a manner that optimizes storage and access at the lowest cost.

Big Data Improving Clinical Outcomes

From banking to retail, many sectors have already embraced big data, regardless of whether the information comes from private or public sources. Traditionally, the healthcare sector has lagged behind other industries in the use of big data. Part of the problem stems from resistance to change as providers are accustomed to making their own decisions, rather than relying on protocols based on big data. However, with regulatory and marketplace changes, players in the healthcare space are now looking at analytics and big data from a different perspective altogether.

Importance of flushing data in unit test cases

While writing unit test cases, it is a good practice to clear and flush the session. When an application is executed in real time, there are several requests, responses or different transactions due to which the session/cache gets cleared. On the other hand, while running a unit test, everything happens as part of a single process i.e the session (especially hibernate) has rotten values or old references which leads to raising of certain exceptions at times.

Dimensional Data Modeling

Dimensional Data Modeling is one of the methods of data modeling that helps us design a data model which is retrieval friendly. Let us try and build a crude model to understand dimensional modeling. A friend once asked me this question: “Every month, we earn and spend money. I always keep wondering at the end of the month why there’s only so little left. How can I see where’s my money going”?
