New Video Tutorial Series: Studio and Cockpit

Some things are vintage and some things are just old. While we were digging through the archives, we found one of our older videos and decided to dust it off and give it an update. Who says something old can’t be new again? And speaking of new, if you’re starting to learn about streaming analytics and trying to figure out how to create, run, or test a project in studio, this is the perfect video for you.

Ready for more good news? Silly question, I know. That’s like asking if you want the last slice of pizza. Anyways, the good news is that this video is part of a tutorial series. So, after you’ve learned the basics of creating and working with projects in studio, you can then learn how to use cockpit to monitor those projects. The bad news? You’ll have to wait for the end of November for the second video to come out. You know the saying: good things come to those who wait!

Anonymization: Analyze sensitive data without compromising privacy

When is data truly anonymized? You can probably remember several cases where organizations such as public transport organizations or telecommunication providers published insufficiently “anonymized” data sets resulting in very damaging highly visible news headlines.

This is not to do any finger-pointing, because you know what? Anonymization is really hard! For many real-life use cases it isn’t enough to just substitute names with pseudonyms, or mask some of the values. With a little additional background knowledge it is often possible to identify the individuals you thought had been anonymized.
