DATA and ANALYTICS
During our recent webinar on scaling self-service analytics, AtScale spoke with Kwan Lee, EVP of Engineering at EverQuote about its multifaceted self-service approach to data analytics for business users and machine learning.
The benefit of implementing analytics policies at the semantic layer – for both access control and usage policies – is that users can be guided and coached how to interact with analytics in real-time. This empowers individuals to operate independently and with confidence that they are working with data in the right way.
AtScale’s semantic layer platform can be a key enabler by addressing some of these fundamental challenges head on. Here are 10 important ways an AtScale semantic layer can help.
Predictions based on time-series analysis are one of the most common products delivered by data science teams. This post focuses on how AtScale + Snowflake create a powerful combination in this common use case.
Have you ever googled “data migration”? Many business owners have already done this. And you should be intimidated by that too. So, data migration is a process of importing or exporting your records from one place to another, from one cloud platform to another, from one help desk solution to another and the list may go further. Nowadays, data migration services help companies to move from on-premise or cloud-based platforms to more suitable options. That happens for a few reasons…

There are several ways enterprise cloud computing is transforming business management. Importantly, enterprise cloud computing allows business organizations to access IT resources and services. For example, companies may partner with a cloud service provider to obtain servers, data storage, and networking infrastructure. Cloud migration is becoming one of the most popular business trends, as companies look to accelerate their day-to-day processes and improve their data storage strategy.
A business’s success is determined by several factors including leadership, marketing, and operations. Those are usually the first things that come to mind. Yet, what most people don’t think of right away, even though they should, is the business’s IT infrastructure. In our technology-driven world, IT is baked into everything. Since it’s a major part of how we live and work, mastering it is essential to a business’s survival. How you implement IT is critical to the business’s security, growth, and scalability.
The creation of the first computer virus in 1971 led to the development of the cyber security industry. Unfortunately, since then, new malware is created every day by threat actors who continue to develop the tools for their nefarious activities. The cyber security threats grew in complexity and scale, and the attack surface also grew exponentially larger. But in this age of sophistication and the range of attack methods, you can identify some common causes of attacks.
keyb The spate of high-profile cyber attacks does show that in today’s digital environment, the question is no longer “if ” but “when” (a firm will be a target). However, the culprit is sometimes not system vulnerability but human error, complacency, outdated security programs, and lack of cybersecurity awareness.
In the wake of restrictions in access to certain services or content online because of location or other reasons, the Virtual Private Network (VPN) has become a handy tool for internet users. Its unique ability to hide users’ IP addresses and redirect the network through a specially configured remote server. Many users have adopted private networks to access information and contents on the internet that they would typically not have accessed.
Laptops are great – most of them have the capabilities of a personal computer, yet are portable enough to move around whenever you need a change of environment. Even with the rise of the smartphone and, more recently, the smartwatch, the laptop has still managed to withstand the competition to be an item most of us need to work on.

The pandemic has led to significant changes in education. The level of education directly affects the income and employment of the population – better-educated people find jobs easier, have better working conditions, and earn more. Education is also positively linked to life expectancy, health, and social integration. Education is a fundamental human right enshrined in Article 26 of the Declaration of Human Rights.

It’s open source the way open source should be.
Usually this error is faced by the gamers – people who have installed Steam games and now cannot launch them. Usually, this happens when you try to launch not licensed games, however, the problem still need to be solved. As a rule, you need to start from finding a good source to download steam_api.dll from as you need the original file without modifications.
It is inevitable that users will encounter different kinds of errors in any software development environment. The CrashLoopBackOff error is one of the common errors that will occur when dealing with Kubernetes deployments. This article covers how to identify a CrashLoopBackOff error and how to diagnose it effectively in order to find the root cause.
For years, database experts struggled to find suitable positions that demanded their unique skillset – software developers seemed to be rapidly moving into their field, often boasting of being proficient with the “Full Stack” of technologies and techniques involved in creating data-driven computer software.
There are several steps to building an enterprise software development infrastructure. Leading firms need an advanced infrastructure to manage development methodologies, active projects, and necessary resources such as container images. Using these infrastructure, enterprises boost tech workplace productivity, reduce costs, and provide opportunities to differentiate from the competition. This way, businesses increase resource usage efficiency, accelerate software releases, and provide continuous post-release support. As an enterprise software developer, you should embrace lightweight, open source software with minimal dependencies and strong encryption to build your infrastructure.
Your data is the most valuable information you create and store on your devices, like smartphones, laptops, etc. Data is mostly unique and sensitive that if accessed by unauthorized persons or it gets lost, the aftereffect can be devastating. Whether the data belongs to private individuals or corporations, they are typically sensitive and confidential.
The use of data aggregations (i.e. aggregates) to accelerate query performance is a common practice for data engineering teams, but the question remains how to balance resources like time and compute consumption in the aggregation process. Rather than relying on manual data engineering, AtScale accelerates analytics query performance using a novel combination of autonomous aggregate management and graph-based query optimization.
While self-service data analytics requires the right technologies, promoting the use of data throughout an organization demands strong data literacy and non-intrusive governance, as well. During our webinar, How to Scale Self-Service Analytics for Smarter Decision-Making, we spoke with John Ackerman, VP of Data and Analytics at Affinity Federal Credit Union about their success with adopting a modern data architecture and facilitating data empowerment.
Why is this such huge news? To date, there has never been a great, live query experience on Power BI for Snowflake, BigQuery, RedShift, Databricks and even Azure Synapse SQL. Historically, Power BI has only supported “DirectQuery” access for cloud data sources. “Live Query” provided by AtScale’s DAX connector will deliver extreme performance benefits for these applications. Coupled with the AtScale semantic layer, the combination of analytics-ready data with the ease of use of Power BI is a terrific combination.
In this day and age – data is king. Companies that are able to completely utilize the data that goes through their business are the ones who can completely break their limits. Data is a sensitive matter and it’s not something you’d want to be handled by amateurs which is why looking for the right professionals is highly recommended.
We tend to think that the security of SaaS is mostly the concern of SaaS vendors due to separation of responsibilities. SaaS vendors must maintain the security of their application—keep all elements patched up to date, implement their own security tools, and monitor for intrusion attempts. All the user has to do is make sure that no one steals their credentials.
