Few days ago, I received an email reminder from Microsoft that three of my Azure Data exams, i.e. DP-100, AI-100, and DP-200/DP-201 were going to expire soon! The criteria for Microsoft certification renewal include:
I went over to Renewal for Microsoft Certified: Azure Data Scientist Associate — Learn | Microsoft Docs, and I was asked to take the renewal assessment.
GitHub Profile “tells people the story of your work through the repositories you’re interested in, the contributions you’ve made, and the conversations you’ve had.
You can add personal information about yourself in your bio, like previous places you’ve worked, projects you’ve contributed to, or interests you have that other people may like to know about.”
“Improving business performance through software development comes down to empowering developers, creating the right environment for them to innovate, and removing points of friction. Industry leaders refer to this capability as “Developer Velocity.” This goes beyond the definition of velocity as it relates to agile methodologies — meaning it is about not just speed but also unleashing the full potential of development talent.”
Developer Velocity involves forty-six different drivers across thirteen dimensions! Business leaders must bear in mind the following dimensions:
In my time of professional or academic life, I am always blessed to receive feedback from my peers and colleagues to help me grow in the area I am weak at. Meaningful feedback is powerful and allows me to rethink my current approach or pivot to an alternate course of action. Let me introduce “F.A.S.T” feedback to you. This is a framework that supports the performance planning, learning and review cycle. Do you know what it takes to provide constructive feedback and what characteristics of feedback should be there?
Strong feedback has 4 characteristics:
In the past several decades, artificial intelligence and robotics has played a vital role in the improvements in technology and led to a surge in public interest. As the figures from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) show, sales of robots are increasing year-on-year, with a 15% increase in 2015 over the previous year. The IFR estimates that over 2.5 million industrial robots will be at work in 2019, representing an average annual growth rate of 12% between 2016 and 2019 (International Federation of Robotics 2016). Many companies are “experiencing a wave of robot-related optimism and investment” because of the…
For some time, Microsoft has been working on the internal project under the codename “Babylon” for restructuring the data catalog service on Azure. Now, it is officially revealed that the data product is “Azure Purview”.
“Azure Purview is a unified data governance platform which automates the discovery of data, cataloging of data, mapping of data, lineage tracking — with the intention of giving our customers a very good understanding of the breadth of the data estate that exists to begin with, and also to ensure that all these regulations that are there for compliance, like GDPR, CCPA, etc, are managed…

Last year, it was obvious from the Microsoft BI official announcement that Power BI Premium is a superset of Azure Analysis Services. You may check out my old post below.
The concept of data mart vs. data warehouse has been one of the biggest hurdles to my customers. The difference comes in three aspects:
In the early days of data repository, a data warehouse (DW or DWH), also known as an enterprise data warehouse (EDW), is a commonly known system used for reporting and data analysis, and is considered a core component of business intelligence. Extract, transform, load (ETL) and extract, load, transform (E-LT) are the two main approaches used to build a data warehouse system. DWs are central repositories of integrated data from one or more disparate sources. They store current and historical data in one single place. It may sound remarkably similar to the definition of a data lake. In particular, data…
