As data science becomes a critical capability for companies, IT leaders are finding themselves responsible for enabling data science teams with infrastructure and tooling. But data science is much more like an experimental research organization than the engineering and business teams that IT organizations support today. Compounding the challenge, data science teams are growing fast, often by 100% a year. This guide will quickly help you understand what data science teams do to build their predictive models and how to best support them.
Learn how to modernize IT’s approach to ensure your company’s data science teams perform their best, and maximize impact to the business. Some highlights include:
Why data science should not be treated like engineering.
How to go beyond simple infrastructure allocation and give data science teams capabilities to manage their workflows and model lifecycle.
Why agility and special hardware to support burst computing are so important to data science break
A data science platform is where all data science work takes place and acts as the system of record for predictive models. While a few leading model-driven businesses have made the data science platform an integral part of their enterprise architecture, most companies are still trying to understand what a data science platform is and how it fits into their architecture. Data science is unlike other technical disciplines, and models are not like software or data. Therefore, a data science platform requires a different type of technology platform.
This document provides IT leaders with the top 10 questions to ask of data science platforms to ensure the platform handles the uniqueness of data science work.
As organizations increasingly strive to become model-driven, they recognize the necessity of a data science platform. According to a recent survey report “Key Factors on the Journey to Become Model-Driven”, 86% of model-driven companies differentiate themselves by using a data science platform. And yet the question of whether to build or buy still remains.
This paper presents a framework to facilitate the decision process, and considers the four-year projection of total costs for both approaches in a sample scenario.
Read this whitepaper to understand three major factors in your decision process:
Total cost of ownership - Internal build costs often run into the tens of millions
Opportunity costs - Distraction from your core competency
Risk factors - Missed deadlines and delayed time to market

Location3 client Mountain Mike’s Pizza and their franchisees face significant competitive challenges when advertising on Google, which ultimately requires the need to be both incredibly efficient with campaign setup and incredibly precise when managing bids and local budgets. A quick Google keyword search for “pizza near me” in Mountain Mike’s home state of California yields over 58,000,000 results (“pizza delivery” yields 56,000,000) and often features a predictable set of ad results from industry giants like Domino’s and Pizza Hut, among others.
Suffice it to say that buying “pizza”-related terms in AdWords can get incredibly expensive, incredibly quickly, if a local franchisee’s budgets and bids are not managed with precision. When you combine that fact with limited location-level advertising budgets, our team atLocation3 was presented with a significant challenge in helping Mountain Mike’s Pizza generate increases in customer pizza orders while simultaneously ensuring that ad spen

Email is possibly today's most important business tool but its use also carries many risks. Scalable, secure archiving, email continuity, data leak prevention - not to mention the constant onslaught of spam and malware - are just some of the issues that IT professionals have to deal with on a daily basis.
Despite the enormous market share that IBM Lotus Notes has earned since its release in 1989, many organizations are now finding that the combination of IBM Lotus Notes and IBM Lotus Domino no longer meets their needs. Many companies are migrating to other solutions, like Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft SharePoint, but they find that their business applications are a challenge because their IBM Lotus applications don’t migrate: instead the applications have to be rebuilt in the new environment.
For manufacturers of baked goods and snacks, the need for flexible, high-quality coding and marking solutions has never been greater. The wide array of packaging types and materials already in use today — combined with the SKU proliferation driven by consumer demands — means manufacturers have to print expiration codes and lot numbers on multiple substrates in multiple areas/orientations on their packaging lines. These codes need to be clear, precise and readable by both humans and machines to ensure customer safety and satisfaction. They must also provide traceability in the event of a recall.
This white paper from Domino looks at the types of printing technology available today and discusses their various advantages and disadvantages in bakery line applications.

Industry 4.0 promises a whole host of benefits to food manufacturers — from reduced errors and more uptime to unprecedented visibility into operations at every step in the process. But for many food manufacturers out there, this is uncharted territory. Getting machines of various vintages connected and communicating seamlessly with each other and with existing control systems can seem like an expensive and difficult proposition.
Coding and marking is a great place to start for many companies, since SKU proliferation is putting greater demands on packaging lines and introducing additional opportunities for human error.
In this brief white paper, Domino examines five key issues with integrating coding and marking systems that often present challenges for food manufacturers along the road to Industry 4.0.
Food and beverage manufacturers today face a host of challenges— SKU proliferation, more frequent line changeovers, finding and retaining skilled employees — all while handling the day-to-day challenges of keeping the line running smoothly in the first place.
This demand for continuous improvement has plant managers and line engineers examining every aspect of the production and packaging line for ways to squeeze every bit of performance from every machine, every process, and every employee

This IDC Technology Spotlight paper takes a look at why Email remains the primary mode of communication in business today. While there is prevalent speculation that social software and other real-time communications applications will replace email, email nevertheless remains a stalwart in business operations. In addition, as relationships across all business communication channels continue to be redefined, innovative modes and methods of communication are emerging. As a result, locating the right data and information at the right time — while still critical — becomes increasingly complex. IDC expects that organizations will use social software, such as Notes and Domino 9x Social Edition, to complement existing tools and address these business needs for the foreseeable future.
