Talend CEO discusses importance of mining relevant data

Business intelligence only exists by mining relevant data.

Without the ability to find the right data, there’s no actual BI to base decisions upon.

Mining relevant data, however, is no simple task.

Given the organizational complexity of today’s big enterprises — many are multinational with offices around the world, others amalgams of companies sewn together over the years by mergers and acquisitions with product lines that go beyond one small niche — the amount of available data amassed over decades can be overwhelming and disorganized.

To help organizations curate their data and gain meaningful insights, vendors such as cloud Talend, founded in 2005 and based in Redwood City, Calif., along with others such as cloud data integration provider Informatica and MuleSoft, recently acquired by Salesforce, have risen and become specialists in data integration.

In a two-part Q&A, Talend CEO Mike Tuchen discusses in depth the difficulty companies face in mining relevant data.

In part one, Tuchen talks about the general challenges that have developed over the last 10 to 15 years as organizations digitize and pool their data, while in part two he discusses differences large corporations face compared with their small and midsize brethren, as well as Talend’s own strategy in helping organizations deal with their sudden abundance of data.

In terms of mining relevant data, what are the challenges organizations face?

Mike Tuchen, CEO of TalendMike Tuchen

Mike Tuchen: The biggest challenge that every company has is that their data is all over the place. It’s in a lot of different systems. They’re in a lot of different formats — some of them you might know about, but most of them you don’t know about. Where is all the relevant info, and how does it relate to each other? Once you start finding all of this data, you quickly start realizing that you’ve going from not knowing where it is to suddenly seeing you’ve got 10 different versions of everything, and they’re all inconsistent and overlapping. How do you start? Where do you go to find the right information? How do you get all that stuff consistent? Those are the core problems every single company faces.

How has it developed to this point — what has happened in the last 10 to 15 years to lead us to this point where mining relevant data is so difficult?

Tuchen: It was more simple 10 to 15 years ago, but that wasn’t necessarily a benefit. It was simpler because many companies simply hadn’t digitized. They had a whole lot of manual processes, so the data simply wasn’t available in any electronic system. The first part of a digital transformation is digitizing, getting everything in the system and now having electronic workflows, and that’s a huge step forward. But it brings that second step, which is that now you’ve created electronic information which you can start to harness and analyze. That’s a huge opportunity that’s just now starting to be tapped, but it leads to exactly the problems we just discussed. Where is all the data that’s relevant, how does it relate to each other, what’s the correct info, how do I make it consistent and correct and find that information and start there and use that to drive my analysis? That’s where value comes from.

What can a company do to find the data it needs?

Tuchen: One of the first steps a company takes is to start cataloging their data. There are companies like us that provide a data catalog that allows you to understand where all your data is and now get to the point where you have a common definition. When I talk about annual recurring revenue, what’s the actual definition, and how am I defining that here? There’s no accounting standard that says here’s what ARR [annual recurring revenue] means, so you need to define it somewhere, so how do I define that and say here are the source tables where all that kind of stuff is going to form. So you start with cataloging it, and now you start driving that cleaning and governance process, you start pulling the data together, automating the cleanup steps to start making it consistent and correct. And then, as you’ve built out those two core capabilities, you now are at the point where your data is consistent and correct and you know what it is. You’ve defined the most important definitions, and your team knows where to go to analyze it.

Are there potential pitfalls that can arise while mining relevant data?

Tuchen: The secondary problem that’s been created that we’re now starting to touch on is that different analytical teams, without having a catalog to go find the data, are going to start recreating it themselves — you not only have duplicate work being created but in some cases inconsistent work, which is even worse. It’s not just that they’re wasting time that could have been saved, it’s that they’re coming to different results by creating different definitions or different flows that result in different answers. It’s creating more confusion. By creating a catalog, understanding where your data is, and now driving convergence and consistency, you’re starting with the right data and everyone is starting in the same place and maximizing use.

For Sale – 2017 13” MacBook Pro (Space Grey) – 2.3GHz i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB HDD

Hi

I am sure a lot of people have claimed because it is actually a consumer right. I am sure you could find out plenty of information online. I think AppleCare is apple’s way of simplifying things – you can just take it into their store anytime. But just so you know, I have never known Apple to turn away any of their hardware……I have had a 3 year old iPad sorted by then FOC but that could be few and far between.

I will provide an email confirmation print out as proof of purchase.

Teleporting holograms, a belt for fetal health, and more at Microsoft’s Imagine Cup student contest

Team Pengram. From left to right: Bill Zhou, Will Huang, Vedant Saran. (Microsoft Photo)

Bill Zhou wanted to be able to help his mom fix the WiFi router when she called. The only problem? He was at school in Berkeley, Calif., and she was not.

“So I try to send her links online or send her videos or try to do a phone call with her, but it’s not really clear,” Zhou said. “And sometimes I wish I could just teleport my presence back home just for five minutes, show her what’s going on, and then teleport back to Berkeley to do whatever I’m doing.”

That personal desire was part of the inspiration for Pengram, an augmented reality tool for remotely assisting and collaborating on projects such as fixing equipment or assembling furniture. The Pengram team, made up of University of California, Berkeley graduate students Zhou, Vedant Saran, and Will Huang, will be one of 49 teams competing in the world finals of Microsoft’s Imagine Cup student competition starting Monday in the Seattle region. Imagine Cup brings together high school and college students who are “innovating and addressing some of humanity’s biggest problems.”

Pengram uses both augmented and virtual reality to “holographically teleport” an expert to assist on a task involving a physical object in another location. The expert, wearing a virtual reality device, can work in the virtual world on a virtual model of the object that needs fixing, such an engine. Whatever the expert does to that virtual engine will be reflected on the other person’s side, except in augmented reality, with an avatar representing the expert demonstrating on the physical object.

“The operator will be able to see the expert as if he was actually there,” Zhou said.

Saran said the platform uses Microsoft Azure to deliver the content via the HoloLens device. Pengram allows users to watch experts in real-time or in previously recorded videos.

Though personal use was one part of the team’s vision for Pengram, inspiration also came from what the team noticed businesses needed. Companies worked with much more complicated machines, like wind turbines or locomotive engines. Zhou said that often, to repair the machines, they would have to fly out an expert because field technicians wouldn’t know how to fix them.

“So what they’re looking for is actually a remote assistance solution where the expert can teleport their presence to the field to assist their technicians anywhere in the world,” Zhou said.

Pengram has worked with companies like smartphone maker HTC to explore the possible uses for the platform. Zhou explained that any company could use Pengram’s capabilities in a unique way suited to their needs. HTC, which supports trade schools in China, finds pre-recorded assistance helpful in training students.

Flashes of Pengram’s capability can be seen in Microsoft’s own Holoportation project, which Microsoft revealed in 2016. Holoportation, like Pengram, uses the HoloLens as a tool to holographically transport 3D models into a physical space in real time, as if all participants were in the same space. In another demonstration, Microsoft showed how someone using a tablet in one location could annotate the real world for someone using a HoloLens in another, such as a plumber showing a homeowner how to fix a sink.

The Pengram team, who have known each other for three years and met through the [email protected] club when they were undergraduates, began the project at a Cal Hacks hackathon a year-and-a-half ago. Pengram won the Microsoft Imagine Cup U.S. Finals to advance to the world finals.

On the other side of the world in Pakistan, Iqra Irfan, Areeba Kamil, and Sami Ullah are developing a wearable belt that monitors fetal health. The team, named Fe Amaan, consists of three undergraduates in their last year at the National University of Sciences and Technology. They wanted to tackle Pakistan’s miscarriage and stillbirth problem, which they described as one of their home country’s biggest issues.

“One of the major issues we found in the healthcare facilities in our country is that there is not enough access to facilities for expecting women,” Kamil said. “And the women who have to suffer the most are women in rural areas, and then they become the target of stillbirths. Later on we also realized that this problem is not just confined to Pakistan, but it’s also a worldwide issue.”

Fe Amaan works as a remote fetal monitoring device, helping ease the consequences of a lack of access to medical facilities. The belt and corresponding Internet of Things sensor device, which sits on the mother’s abdomen, can monitor fetal movements and heart rate. It sends the data to a mobile app, which analyzes it and generate alerts if it detects any anomalies. The device uses Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform to host its applications and to predict the state of the fetus in advance, based on the data gathered.

The hope is that precautionary measures can then be taken before it’s too late.

“We believe it’s the right of every woman to have good medical facilities and we want to make sure it’s our aim to eliminate the risk of having a stillbirth,” Irfan said.

The three have were friends prior to the project, and decided to work on Fe Amaan as part of their senior projects for university. Fe Amaan has gone through clinical trials, which the team cites as the most difficult part of the process. The team participated in the Pakistan national finals and won the Middle East and Africa finals to advance to the world finals.

The Microsoft Imagine Cup World Finals will take place in Seattle next week, from July 23 to 25. The annual student technology and innovation competition requires participants to submit their software, instructions, and give live presentations on the team, the project, the target market, and how the team plans to bring the project to market.

Forty-nine teams, including Pengram and Fe Amaan, will compete on the world stage after winning national and regional competitions throughout the year. The winning team will get $100,000 and a mentoring session with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

This year’s Imagine Cup, the 16th annual competition, includes awards for projects in artificial intelligence, big data, and mixed reality. The judges include Microsoft executive vice president of business development Peggy Johnson, coding community Glitch CEO Anil Dash, and software package management company Bitnami co-founder and COO Erica Bresica. Snowboarder and Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim will also be a special invited guest at the competition.
