A Closer look at Big Data Today!

When a collection of data sets are really large & complex, it becomes hard to process and manage such data in traditional ways using conventional RDBMS tools & programs. Such forms of data could be referred to as Big Data. This includes both structured & unstructured data.


Now, it is pretty evident that data is going to keep getting bigger and bigger. Today's data comes from multiple sources. If such data is not managed correctly, it can spiral out of control. 

The aim for most organizations working with Big Data is to be able to analyze & drill through any harmless relevant parts of such data in order to achieve the following:-
  • Relative predictions of outcomes and behaviors
  • Smarter business decision making
  • Quick identification of the most significant customer base
  • Cost & time reductions during new product development with optimized offerings
  • Usage of inductive statistics with data mining to detect fraudulent behavior
By using some diverse products and extensive data analysis strategies available today, organizations could certainly achieve all of the above & much more.
Almost all Big Data explorers today are saying that it will accelerate efficiency, quality and produce higher levels of customer satisfaction & experience. One must be clear of what their Big Data strategy is and how to go about implementing it.

There seems to be some new business value waiting to be utilized through various emerging big data technologies. Many such products & platforms today are entirely cloud based or have cloud versions. This goes to show that Big Data & cloud computing go hand in hand.

The big question is, will they be consistent enough in handling & monitoring such large data to derive true & new value!

Today's intelligent Web Browser!

Nowadays, more and more business is done through a Web browser. The fact is, for many business users and consumers, the Web browser is by far the single most-used application on the PC. 
Kensoft Infotech's flagship financial software products are intuitive web-based online systems built on a state of the art weblogic architecture. While Ken-SOFTIL (Kensoft's Software for Industrial/Institutional Lending) and Ken-HFS  (Kensoft's Home Finance Software) work seamlessly with google chrome, firefox, opera & IE. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is one that is continously evolving. In IE 11, JavaScript runs 50 percent faster than in Chrome. It has improved support for HTML 5 features like drag and drop that will allow cloud-based tools like Microsoft’s SkyDrive and Office Web Apps to work more intuitively. IE 11 also supports WebGL for delivering smooth, 3D graphics over the Web.
There’s a new Web, though Web 1.0 was about simply displaying static HTML pages. Web 2.0 introduced interactivity, user-generated content, and Web applications. Now, we’re entering the Web 3.0 phase, the “intelligent Web” era of ubiquitous connectivity, data mining, and artificial intelligence.

Is the canvas element still going strong?

It will take some time before it completely replaces flash!
Flash is not yet obsolete.
It's just lost out with the tablet/mobile browsers.

The <canvas> element is not as responsive or lag free as flash.
It's got limitations when it comes to certain versions of chrome & safari.
But to an extent this is what killed flash.

Only time will tell!
