💼 Past Experience
I have worked on developing platforms to automate the data mission critical tasks for steel mills across the world. I have been working with a few different mills and I have found that the platforms that work best for them are also the ones that work best for me.From my work with steel mills, I have learned that the best way to automate the data-flow is to use a platform like Hadoop. Hadoop gives you the power to organize your data into named zones, so that you can reason about it easily. This makes it so that you can analyze it quickly and efficiently, without having to go through the hassle of parsing it yourself. Additionally, using Hadoop can help you improve accuracy and performance in your data analysis. By automating data misprocessing and predicting future events, Hadoop can help you take better advantage of your data. Additionally, by using Hadoop, you can reduce the amount of time you need to gather data, which can speed up your workflow.I have also found that using a platform like Spark can be a great way to automate your data analysis. With Spark, you can use streaming data to make it easy to process vast amounts of data quickly. Additionally, Spark can help you analyze data in real time, which can help you get a better understanding of the data you are working with. Finally, using Spark can also help you find patterns in the data that you may not have found using other methods.Lastly, using data visualization tools like Excel or Catapult can help you see the patterns that you are trying to see in your data. Additionally, by using data visualizations, you can make your data easier to understand and diagnose.
