Online Office Parties at Seeq: The Virtual Baby Shower

In previous jobs, organizing a social gathering for my team was relatively straightforward; people do it all the time.  For a co-located team, the steps are clear and obvious.  First, find a conference room that is not only available, but as secret/hidden as you need it to be.  

How well do you really know your coworkers? A virtual company shares all.

With so much market noise, it’s no wonder the Gartner Hype Cycle (another analyst firm, for IT audiences) has “Machine Learning” and “Deep Learning” at the highest level of their July 2017 Technology Hype Cycle report, in the “Peak of Inflated Expectations” category.

Beyond the “Aha!"

Before a discussion of how Seeq is going “beyond the aha!”, a quick head’s up to let you know Seeq is now a Schneider Electric Wonderware Registered Partner.  This partnership is another milestone in our effort to support the broadest range of customer data sources, including options that span a dozen historians, relational data sources like Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle, and open source systems for “big data.”
