Conceiving Valuable Data Driven Insights

Posted by James Burr on Mar 13, 2018


How valuable is an insight if you don’t know what’s driving it?

The investment in big data made in recent years by companies has been significant. Many are now looking to capitalize on the insights to be discovered in their expansive data lakes. Developing an analytic solution is a difficult and laborious process. More than a few projects have been abandoned long before any conclusive benefit is realized. Some efforts end due to constraints on time and money, others as a result of bad design or poor end user adoption. That last point is significant.

Abstraction lets me work with a well thought out interface designed to let me accomplish more without having to always consider the system at a molecular level.

It turns out business people also like abstraction. This shouldn’t be surprising as businesses model complex real world concepts where the details matter. From calculation to contextual meaning, abstraction helps with correctness and understanding.
