The Freedom Act: An American Milestone

Today, we’re going to stray slightly off our usual topic and talk about the latest milestone the U.S. has achieved recently.

Data gathering, a topic that outraged the masses since Edward Snowden revealed thousands of documents about NSA’s nefarious activities. The revelation paved the way to the newly passed bill, The Freedom Act, which is designed to counter the Patriot Act’s Section 215 – the part which allowed the NSA to seize business files and gather massive bulk of phone records.

Finding the Silver Lining in Cloud Computing

What really is cloud computing, and why are companies of different sizes and shapes adapting to this new technology?

A cloud refers to a unique information technology environment that is formulated to deploy groups of remote servers and software networks that allow centralized data storage and online access to computer services or resources. It is said that the symbol of a cloud represents the Internet in various specifications and architectures. IT resources provided by cloud environments are committed to providing back-end processing and user-based entrance. Read More

The Need for Sensors for All Types of Process Control Measurements

There are few prevalent technologies for level measurement. Each technology is based on distinctive methods and present different challenges.

Level measurement is a requirement in many industries, especially those that deal with liquid substances that necessitate such control measures which are crucial to the smooth running of the particular industrial process. Accommodations have to be made for potential changes in temperature and pressure due to climatic fluctuations and considerations have to be for their effect on the density and volume of the liquid being measured.

Understanding IoT and its Effect with Data Engineering

In the previous post (Staying Ahead of the Competition through Data Engineering) we have briefly bump into an important topic, and that is the Internet of Things (IoT).

To start things off, what is exactly is this IoT?

Put it shortly, IoT is a plethora of objects embedded with software and sensors capable of exchanging data with its manufacturer and other smart devices. The data is sent to a network along with the other information that is being directed by other objects embedded by the same software and sensors. These sensors will allow the object to be observed in real time, providing information on that specific object relevant to whatever data is needed at a certain time. Read More

Staying Ahead of the Competition through Data Engineering

Data is everything. Business owners, big and small, have been using these data as foundation for their marketing strategy – and for a good reason. Data never lies. Information is critical in identifying human behaviors, behaviors that can potentially yield a lucrative amount of money if gathered, sifted, analyzed, and implemented properly by companies that use them.

However, it is quite the challenge to find reliable information through the large chunk of information that is usually gathered. This is where professionals in data engineering come in. To put it shortly, data engineers are people that build, design, and manage infrastructures that will help in identifying useful data in a way that can benefit a business. Read More
