SQL For Data Science With Google Big Query


SQL For Data Science With Google Big Query You will also get to learn Google Big Query, a very popular cloud based tool for querying large amounts of data at scale in the cloud. Not only will you learn SQL, ... I am a data scientist with years of experience working in industry. As a data scientist I use a ton of different tools/techniques but the one I use the most is probably SQL! This course assumes you know nothing about SQL and teaches you all the basics as well as more advanced features/methods.

Big Query SQL on Google Cloud Platform -- Part 1


I'm creating this post not just to let the world (alright, atleast my readers! Big query is a highly scalable, server less, cost-effective multi-cloud data warehouse designed for business agility and is integrated on Google Cloud Platform. If you are a developer who works with huge amounts of data, you can use Google Cloud Platform to query data at fast speeds. This post covers the most basics to advanced SQL. Hang in fellas, let's get started -- We use a SELECT statement to retrieve data from a database.

Push-down query capabilities: Five questions to ask your cloud BI provider


Software-as-a-service (SaaS) offers many benefits, including but not limited to elasticity: the ability to shrink and grow storage and compute resources on demand. Clients of most leading enterprise business intelligence (BI) platforms enjoy this cloud elasticity benefit but at a cost. Ultimately, elasticity requires both application and data components (compute and store) to be elastic, and therefore, cloud-native BI platforms require that on-premises data be ingested into the cloud platform before it can be analyzed. But not all organizations are ready to let go of their data from inside their firewalls, and they are not ready to commit to a single cloud provider -- most are opting for a hybrid on-premises and multicloud environment. Here's a look at how the cloud leaders stack up, the hybrid market, and the SaaS players that run your company as well as their latest strategic moves.

Alation adds cloud storage access from hybrid environments


Big Data upended the economics and architectural practices of enterprise data warehousing by not only making it cost effective to store and process more data and more varied forms of it, but also promoting new patterns that pushed analytics computing and data tiers together. Now the cloud is prompting a shift of the pendulum back the other way. By decoupling data from compute, cloud Big Data services take advantage of object storage, which is far cheaper than HDFS file storage, and compute can be made elastic. While Amazon EMR allows customers the option to use HDFS, most EMR customers have embraced S3. Yet paradoxically, few data warehouses have fully taken advantage of the cloud architecture.

Using Postman to load test an Azure Machine Learning web service


Azure Machine Learning (Azure ML) is a fully managed cloud service that enables you to easily build, deploy and share predictive analytics solutions. Azure ML allows you to create a predictive analytic experiment and then directly publish that as a web service. The web service API can be used in two modes: "Request Response" and "Batch Execution". A Request-Response Service (RRS) is a low-latency, highly scalable web service used to provide an interface to stateless models that have been created and deployed from an Azure Machine Learning Studio experiment. It enables scenarios where the consuming application expects a response in real-time.
