Make your designs immediately self-explanatory and easy to use, and never "agree to disagree" again about whether they are intuitive!

Your mission: To design an intuitive UI for your next project. Your problem: You're not sure what "intuitive UI" really means. Worst problem: Your team isn't sure either, so your discussions about intuitive design are unproductive and opinion-driven.

If this sounds familiar, Intuitive Design: Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI will give you the insight, principles, and guidelines you need to get the job done. You'll learn the objective and actionable steps for designing intuitive UIs - for mobile, web, and desktop apps. Mission accomplished!

It has never been easier for organizations to gather, store, and process data. Use of data science is driven by the rise of big data and social media, the development of high-performance computing, and the emergence of such powerful methods for data analysis and modeling as deep learning.

Data science encompasses a set of principles, problem definitions, algorithms, and processes for extracting non-obvious and useful patterns from large datasets. It is closely related to the fields of data mining and machine learning, but broader in scope. This book offers a brief history of the field, introduces fundamental data concepts, and describes the stages in a data science project. It considers data infrastructure and the challenges posed by integrating data from multiple sources, introduces the basics of machine learning, and discusses how to link machine learning expertise with real-world problems.

The book also reviews ethical and legal issues, developments in data regulation, and computational approaches to preserving privacy. Finally, it considers the future impact of data science and offers principles for success in data science projects.

Learn how blockchain works, where to use it within your organization, and how it will impact data management.

This audiobook contains three parts:

  • Explanation. Part I will explain the concepts and principles within blockchain. A precise definition is provided along with an example illustrating how blockchain works. Variations of blockchain are explored based upon the concepts of purpose and scope.
  • Usage. Now that you understand blockchain, where do you use it? The reason for building a blockchain application must include at least one of these five drivers: transparency, streamlining, privacy, permanence, or distribution. Usages based upon these five drivers are shown for finance, insurance, government, manufacturing, retail, utilities, healthcare, nonprofit, and media. This audiobook will illustrate each usage through inputs, guides, enablers, and outputs. Also examined are the challenges of applying these usages, such as cooperation, incentives, and risk.
  • Impact. Now that you know where to use blockchain, how will it impact your existing IT (Information Technology) environment? Part III explores how blockchain will impact data management, using the Data Management Body of Knowledge 2nd Edition (DMBOK2) as a reference. Learn how blockchain will impact each of the 11 data management disciplines within DMBOK2. Once you understand blockchain concepts and principles, you can position yourself, department, and organization to leverage distributed ledger technology.
