On the Road With Analytics

A

nyone who wants to learn something about data
analytics should take a road trip. Myriad real-time
decisions must be made based on analysis of static
information as well as ever-changing conditions. Data
about traffic, weather, road construction, fuel, time, current
location and available funds are just a few of the factors.

This information and much more are needed to answer
questions like:

CONTRIBUTORS

R Paul DiMarzio
Old money
Among his interests, Paul DiMarzio, the author of "The System z Crystal Ball?"
on page 28, counts numismatics, the study and collection of currency. His
primary collection of more than 300 pieces focuses on bronze coins from the
Roman Empire minted between A.D. 296 and 325 in Londinium (modern-day
London). In 2011, the Yorkshire Numismatic Society invited DiMarzio to York-
where Constantine the Great was declared emperor by his troops upon the
death of his father-to deliver a paper on the topic.

R Harry Campbell
Serious mileage
A dedicated cyclist, Harry Campbell,
who illustrated the feature on page 28,
frequently logs 100 miles a day on his
bike. The fortitude and endurance his hobby demands
translate well into his profession as an illustrator. During
his 25-year career, Campbell's work has appeared in
many publications, including the New York Times, Time
magazine and the Wall Street Journal.
