Tabula Rosa Systems Technical Term - Quant - Do you know What It Is?



 

Quant (quantitative analyst)
A quant (quantitative analyst) is a financial industry professional whose qualifications also include advanced mathematics and and computer skills.
Typically, quants design complex mathematical models for use in securities trading. Although the term is most commonly associated with finances, economics and risk management, it is increasingly used in a wide variety of other industries. Essentially, any area that requires quantitative analysis might employ a quant. With the advent of big data and the complexities of big data analysis, most industries and organizations could benefit from an employee with that skill set.
In a growing trend, IT professions have skill sets that have traditionally been thought of as part of separate career paths. Other examples of IT jobs with converged skill sets include growth hackers, chief marketing technologists (CMT), DevOps and WebOps.

Netiquette Basics For Social Media For Job Seekers



 





The following is from my new book, "You're Hired!" Please see the information following the Blog post.

============================================================



“Privacy and social media are as far apart as living in the wilderness is to living in a New York City high-rise.”
—Paul Babicki

Social Media Netiquette for job seekers

Netiquette for job seekers has expanded to include social media. This is a rapidly growing segment and requires a proactive approach. Consider the following statistics from career.com:

·         Of employers, 37 percent use social networks to screen potential job candidates.
·         Of employers who use social media, 34 percent have found information on a candidate that caused them not to hire the person.
·         Of job seekers, 89 percent use social media to look for jobs.
·         Of the hiring managers who use social media, 45 percent want to learn more about a candidate to see if he or she has diversified experience.
·         Of employers, 51 percent want to know if a candidate is a good fit for the company, and they actively utilize social media to learn more about a candidate of interest.

In contrast to these statistics, 29 percent of hiring managers have found something positive on a social-media profile that contributed to their selection of that candidate. This low number would likely indicate, among other things, that there exists the potential to be ahead of the curve in this area. For example, if there are items that are potentially detrimental for a recruiter/hiring manager to see, they should be removed, particularly from LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Another strategic action you can take is to follow any company you are seeking employment with on their respective social-media accounts.
            Additionally, there are many groups in virtually any category that are open to join on LinkedIn, Yahoo, and other sites. Add your name to the groups. Once you join, it is essential to participate in them and contribute to discussions and topics. It is even better to initiate discussions. To go even further, it is often a very good idea to mention a possible employer in these threads. If a recruiter runs a search on you and finds you have commented ositively on their company or product, this will likely be viewed favorably. But care should be taken to insure that you are not praising separate companies that are direct competitors! Finally, it is in keeping with good Netiquette to be a contributor, not observer, to any group you join. This will also give you better positive exposure on Google and other search engines.

Tabula Rosa SYstems Technology Definition Leaf-Spine Networks



 














Leaf-spine is a two-layer network topology composed of leaf switches and spine switches. Servers and storage connect to leaf switches and leaf switches connect to spine switches. Leaf switches mesh into the
Every leaf switch in a leaf-spine architecture connects to every switch in the network fabric. No matter which leaf switch a server is connected to, it has to cross the same number of devices every time it connects to another server. (The only exception is when the other server is on the same leaf.) This minimizes latency and bottlenecks because each payload only has to travel to a spine switch and another leaf switch to reach its endpoint.
A leaf-spine topology can be layer 2 or layer 3 depending upon whether the links between the leaf and spine layer will be switched or routed. In a layer 2 leaf-spine design, Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links or shortest path bridging takes the place of spanning-tree. All hosts are linked to the fabric and offer a loop-free route to their Ethernet MAC address through a shortest-path-first computation. In a layer 3 design, each link is routed. This approach is most efficient when virtual local area networks are sequestered to individual leaf switches or when a network overlay, like VXLAN, is working.

Tabula Rosa Systems Technical Term Of 9/23/2016 - Social Media Analytics



 










Social media analytics
Social media analytics is the practice of gathering data from blogs and social media websites and analyzing that data to make business decisions. The most common use of social media analytics is to mine customer sentiment in order to support marketing and customer service activities.
The first step in a social media analytics initiative is to determine which business goals the data that is gathered and analyzed will benefit. Typical objectives include increasing revenues, reducing customer service costs, getting feedback on products and services and improving public opinion of a particular product or business division.
Once the business goals have been identified, key performance indicators (KPIs) for objectively evaluating the data should be defined. For example, customer engagement might be measured by the numbers of followers for a Twitter account and numbers of retweets and mentions of a company's name.
There are a number of types of software tools for analyzing unstructured data found in tweets and Facebook posts. In addition to to text analysis, many enterprise-level social media tools will harvest and store the data.
