Read this eGuide to discover the fundamental differences between iPaaS and dPaaS and how the innovative approach of dPaaS gets to the heart of today’s most pressing integration problems, brought to you in partnership with Liaison.

Cloudera's Josh Wills discusses the life of a data scientist:


Data scientists-- the people who straddle the line between statistician and software engineer-- are in demand like never before. Even though this kind of position has existed in many industries for years, it never had a name before, and thus it was challenging to recruit people who possessed this relatively rare mix of skills. As data sets have grown larger and computational skills have become more critical to working with data, what used to be merely challenging has become nearly impossible. The current talent scarcity means that we need to identify and develop people with backgrounds in either statistics, software engineering, or scientific research into successful data scientists. We will discuss how to grow data scientists as well as data science teams, and how to build the kind of work environment that data scientists love.


Discover the unprecedented possibilities and challenges, created by today’s fast paced data climate and why your current integration solution is not enough, brought to you in partnership with Liaison
