6 Data Connectivity Topics You Care About

A Closer Look at These Topics

Our goal is to give you as many connectivity resources as we can to help you succeed. Here is some content we have already created regarding these topics. Hopefully they are of help to you, and if not, please comment below with any questions you have.

Artificial Intelligence

This is a topic that we discovered you care a lot about. We will definitely start writing and researching this topic to bring something fresh to the blog. On this note, one amazing development in the artificial intelligence space is the creation of AI music.

In an article by Quartz, “The first pop song ever written by artificial intelligence is pretty good, actually,” they describe how researchers at Sony CSL Research laboratory just released the first pop song ever composed by AI entitled “Daddy’s Car.” The basic concept is that the AI analyzes a database of a certain genre and tried to create its own, original version.


Data Science

This topic fascinates us and we have quite a bit of content written about the subject. Below are the blogs in our three part Data Science series.

Hybrid Connectivity

With the relatively new advent of an easy-to-use, low cost cloud, more and more business are leveraging their resources in the cloud and making the move from on-premises connectivity. But, there is still a tremendous need for on-premises connectivity because many companies cannot move 100% of their resources to the cloud. It would pull the rug out from under their organization and cost an excessive amount of money.

What if you could have the best of both worlds and embed a lightweight connector behind your on-premises firewall to have a single, standardized interface for all of your data? You can! Our latest release, Hybrid Data Pipeline, does just that. Learn all about it with these resources:
