Looking in Both Directions

· Big Data Zone

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.

From David Mumford’s May 2013 interview in SIAM News:

The applied mathematician has the difficult job of looking at a problem in context with no explicit mathematics and trying to see what kinds of mathematical ideas are under the surface that could clarify the situation. I think the most successful applied mathematicians are those who look in both directions, at the science and the math.

You can’t become too attached to one way of looking at things. Applied math has always rejuvenated pure, and theorems in pure math can unexpectedly lead to new tools with vast applications.

Emphasis added. I wish Mumford had said “at the problem and at the math” because not all applications of math are scientific.

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
