EDITOR'S DESK PHOTOGRAPHY BY TRAVIS ANDERSON 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: ĀÃ,IÃ,ÃVNLSÃWKLVÃJDVÃVWDWLRQÃZLOOÃ,ÃUXQÃRXWÃRIÃJDVÃEHIRUHà à the next one?

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. 6 // NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013 ibmsystemsmag.com 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. http://bit.ly/17SmCXv http://www.ibmsystemsmag.com
