Tableau wants you to be data literate


Analytics software provider Tableau has launched its Data Literacy for All educational program.

"Regardless of role or tenure, data skills are no longer a 'nice to have.' The events of this year have accelerated the need for organisations to adapt and evolve with timely, accurate decision-making rooted in data," said director of Tableau academic programs Courtney Totten.

"Whether preparing to join the workforce or reskilling amidst the 'new normal,' the journey towards building a more data literate world begins with cultivating foundational data skills at every level."

Data Literacy for All is available to everyone.

It comprises seven modules:

Introduction to Data Literacy
Recognising Well-Structured Data
Exploring Variables and Field Types
Exploring Aggregation and Granularity
Understanding Distributions
Understanding Variation for Wise Comparisons
Using Correlation and Regression to Examine Relationships

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
