Nicole Hemsoth named as editor for new data-intensive computing publication
SAN DIEGO, Nov. 8 — Tabor Communications Inc., (TCI) publisher of HPCwire, HPC in the Cloud, Digital Manufacturing Report, and a leading international media, advertising, and communications company, today announced the launch of a new publication titled Datanami. Datanami is dedicated to providing insights, analysis, and up-to-the-minute information about emerging trends in big data. Nicole Hemsoth, formerly an editor of the TCI publications HPCwire and HPC in the Cloud, and the creator of Datanami, has been named as editor for the new online portal.
The term "big data" is frequently used to describe the vast amounts of data that is accumulating and how organizations are struggling to keep pace with data-driven demands. The explosion of this data is estimated to be growing at a rate of an additional five percent of all previous data, every month. Datanami examines the avalanche of unprecedented amounts of data flooding virtually every market sector, and the benefits and challenges this big data stream presents across the IT, enterprise, and commercial markets.
"Globally, we are becoming deluged by huge torrents of data; computational, private, and public that is becoming significantly more complex to decipher in its raw state. The challenge now facing us – every organization, every research project, and every community – is how to effectively manage and intelligently use the data we are collecting," said Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications Inc.
Tabor went on to note, "Understanding the complexities involved in data mining, analytics, and data processing requires a consummate professional, with the inside knowledge and expertise to communicate to readers the latest developments as they take place across the industry. To that end, there is no one better qualified than Nicole Hemsoth to be the editor and voice of Datanami. As the creative genius behind the publication, she will now be able to focus all her time and editorial effort solely into Datanami, and we look forward to her continued contributions as its editor."
"As an IT news organization focused on high-end computing, we have been following the big data movement closely for quite some time," said Nicole Hemsoth, editor of Datanami. "From the launch of the experimental version of Datanami over six months ago until this formal launch, we are convinced now more than ever that innovations in data-intensive computing are set to completely reshape all arenas of IT; from high performance computing to the work being done at small enterprises. Large enterprises, research centers and small companies around the globe are tapping into the possibilities of their vast wells of data and we look forward to being the resource for news about the new technologies that are reshaping their operations."
As a contributing editor for HPCwire and most recently, editor of HPC in the Cloud for TCI, Hemsoth brings insights from the world of high performance computing, as well as cloud infrastructure to the new challenges created by big data. Now, as the editor of Datanami, Hemsoth blends news and perspectives from across the academic and enterprise spheres on the larger canvas of technologies and trends that are reshaping computing across all sectors.
Datanami is a news portal dedicated to providing insight, analysis and up-to-the-minute information about emerging trends and solutions in big data. The portal sheds light on all cutting edge technologies including networking, storage and applications, and their effect upon business, industry, government, and research. The publication examines the avalanche of unprecedented amounts of data and the impact the high-end data explosion is having across the IT enterprise.
