How To Optimize Business Intelligence In The New Remote Workforce Landscape

Ted Sergott, EVP, Product Development at PRO Unlimited, is responsible for all aspects of PRO’s Vendor Management System, Wand.

In just a few months, the coronavirus pandemic has changed the candidate sourcing and talent landscape. According to a Gallup poll, 70% of the workforce was always or sometimes working remotely in April 2020.

Workers and organizations have had to adjust to this “new normal,” which offers both challenges and opportunities. For savvy organizations, one such opportunity is the ability to source contingent job positions in previously untapped locations, which can open up possibilities to lower costs, reduce fill times, and increase talent levels and diversity.

Remote Work And Business Intelligence: The New Landscape

Let’s say your company has been hiring primarily on the West Coast. Now that Covid-19 has ushered in a “new normal,” many employees in these areas have successfully been working remotely.

Data classification (business intelligence) – Wikipedia

In business intelligence, data classification has close ties to data clustering, but where data clustering is descriptive, data classification is predictive.[1][2] In essence data classification consists of using variables with known values to predict the unknown or future values of other variables. It can be used in e.g. direct marketing, insurance fraud detection or medical diagnosis.[2]

The first step in doing a data classification is to cluster the data set used for category training, to create the wanted number of categories. An algorithm, called the classifier, is then used on the categories, creating a descriptive model for each. These models can then be used to categorize new items in the created classification system.[1]

Effectiveness[edit]

According to Golfarelli and Rizzi, these are the measures of effectiveness of the classifier:[1]

  • Predictive accuracy: How well does it predict the categories for

California Financing Law | The Department of Financial Protection and Innovation

Responsible Small Dollar Loans Pilot Program

Senate Bill 318 (Chap. 467, Stats. 2013) was signed into law on October 1, 2013 and is operative January 1, 2014. The bill created the Pilot Program for Increased Access to Responsible Small Dollar Loans (RSDL) to increase the availability of responsible small dollar installment loans of at least $300 but less than $2,500. Finance lenders who are licensed underthe CFLL and approved by the Commissioner of the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (Commissioner) to participate in the program may charge specified alternative interest rates and charges, including an administrative fee and delinquency fees, on loans of at least $300 but less than $2,500, subject to certain requirements. Licensees participating in the program are also permitted to use the services of a finder as defined in Section 22371 of the Financial Code.

Business Intelligence Definition | What is Business Intelligence?

What is Business Intelligence?
At Teradata business intelligence is viewed as a way for businesses to avoid the less-than-helpful results of inaccurate, insufficient data analysis using a procedural and technical infrastructure that collects, stores, and analyzes data produced by a company’s activities. BI is a broad term that encompasses data mining, process analysis, performance benchmarking, and descriptive analytics. BI parses all the data generated by a business and presents easy-to-digest reports, performance measures, and trends driving management decisions. Business intelligence addresses the needs of casual users, including executives, managers, front-line workers, customers and suppliers. It delivers reports, dashboards and scorecards that are tailored to each user’s role and populated with metrics aligned with strategic objectives and goals. This top-down style is powered by a classic data warehousing structure that consolidates enterprise data and enforces information consistency by transforming shared data into a common data model (schema) and BI semantic layer

5 ways productive business owners fight distractions and stay focused

It’s no secret that Americans are stressed. A recent study shows 3 out of 4 Americans experienced a symptom of extreme stress in the past month. Throw entrepreneurship into the mix, and you’re primed for a breakdown, or burnout at the very least. The good news? It doesn’t have to be this way.

This is why self-care is important.

The term “self-care” is nowadays often associated with skincare routines and Netflix, but in reality, it’s much more than that: It’s valuing yourself and your health enough to graciously set boundaries and say no. That way, you bring the best version of yourself to your job and relationships day after day.

I’ve started several companies, sold two, and recently started a new gig as VP of Growth & Ops for Steadfast Media (hi, guys!) while running Honey & Vinegar, so it’s safe to say I’ve been one tired woman. There were

Wildfire Insurance Crisis for California Homeowners

Homeowners in fire-prone areas of California may soon find there’s no one to insure their properties.

Last year, the state barred insurance companies from canceling policies on about 800,000 homes in or near areas with a high risk of wildfires. That ban is set to expire soon and there’s no way to renew it, according to the New York Times.

Insurance companies, which have been financially battered by huge payouts in high-risk areas, are expected to continue pulling out of them unless California officials allow them to raise rates.

“The marketplace has largely collapsed” in those high-risk areas, Graham Knaus, executive director of the California State Association of Counties, which has lobbied state lawmakers on the matter, told the Times. “It’s a very large geographic area of the state that is facing this.”

Why Right Now Is the Best Time Ever to Start a Business

“I am really concerned about starting a new company right now. I think the world is too unstable and it’s just too risky,” a very close friend of mine was relaying to me the other day. “I have a job. I don’t want to voluntarily quit, have my company fail and then struggle to find something on the other side.”

“You need to look at things differently,” I responded. “You need to look at the extraordinary opportunities and the lower barriers to entry for starting a company right now. You can have access to people and talent that you would not have had previously.” 

“Yes, I know, but I am still worried,” my friend immediately responded. “I guess I want to have my cake and eat it.” 

As technology futurist Kevin Kelly would say, right now
