Golden, CO (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Firebox has announced the addition of a new Python training course that will be offered in a four-day format. The course-ware being used for the new Python training course was recently completely re-engineered from the ground up. The previous version of the course-ware lacked some of the practical application aspects included in the new course. The new Introduction to Python | Fundamentals and Essentials of Python four-day course, jump starts students into action. After completing the course students will immediately be able to use Python to complete tasks in the real world.

Some of our best Python instructors also do consulting. Instructor-led online Python courses help these instructors bring recent real-world experience to the classroom, said Julie Johnson, Founder of Firebox Training.

In this four-day Python Fundamentals training course, our students get a hands-on learning experience starting with the Python programming basics of writing and running Python scripts to even more advanced Python programming features such as file operations, regular expressions, and using the extensive functionality of Python modules, said Mr. Johnson. If you are an IT professional looking to modernize the tools in your skills set, becoming a Python programmer and developer is a definite must and Firebox can help you get there.

Firebox Training is instructor-owned and instructor-operated. According to Firebox, Python and other programming instructors are well vetted - its part of why they seek out actively consulting instructors. Firebox seems to be finding success with this top-grading of instructor talent, which means only the most qualified deliver Python training. The new Introduction to Python four-day course is delivered most often as a live instructor-led public online course-the virtual classroom. Additionally, the courses are taught on-site at client locations throughout the US and world. Firebox also offers traditional classroom style IT training courses.

Firebox also received some very positive feedback from recent post course student surveys, according to company sources.

'Possibly the best online training courses I have ever taken,' was a student comment we received recently, stated Shawn Johnson, Director of Operations at Firebox Training. We take our post Python training surveys seriously and make adjustments as needed.

There is a wide variety of industries using Python programming from web development, gaming and graphics firms to financial, science and business software. Clearly Python is a widely used and popular coding language today. Education and governments are also implementing operational solutions using Python.

Python programming skills are in high demand right now. In fact at the start of Q2 2013, there were more that 2000 Python programming jobs advertised on Dice.com, a leading IT employment source. There are a wide variety of employers and locations seeking to hire IT professionals with Python skills and the Introduction to Python programming course offered by Firebox Training empowers students to get past technical interviews and land a job.

Ayata Celebrates 10 Years of Big Data Software, Helping Customers See and Shape the Future with Prescriptive Analytics

Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

Ayata, the inventor of prescriptive analytics software for big data, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Ayata started as a research laboratory for developing the third and final stage of big data analytics - prescriptive analytics. Since then, the companys prescriptive analytics software has been used by major high-tech and energy customers such as Cisco, Microsoft, Dell, and Apache Corporation to manage sales, improve customer service, launch new products, streamline parts logistics and increase oil production.

Before Ayata, companies could only use big data tools for descriptive and predictive analytics. While these two stages have proven to be tremendously valuable, companies have sought software to not just describe the past and predict the future, but prescribe actions that can improve future performance.

Ayata's patented technology for prescriptive analytics combines thousands of variables from numeric-based structured data as well as unstructured data such as images, videos, texts and sounds. By using both types of data, Ayata software provides a more complete picture of future outcomes along with time-sensitive prescriptions to improve them.

Ayatas prescriptive analytics software has several applications in the oil and gas industry. For example, more than 90 percent of the one million oil producing wells in the world use artificial lift pumps to push hydrocarbons to the surface. Ayata software can predict pump failures and preempt production loss due to pump failures.

Ayatas prescriptive analytics technology has the potential to make a significant impact in the oil and gas industry, said Ayata CEO Atanu Basu. Hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil are lost every day due to unpredictable electronic submersible pump failures. Ayatas software can predict not only what pumps might fail, when and why, but also prescribe actions to minimize the anticipated production loss. Our technology can do the same for other types of artificial lift mechanisms.

About Ayata

Ayata is a big data analytics software company focused on prescriptive analytics with hybrid data. Ayatas software helps large corporations see and shape the future of their mission critical processes. Prescriptive analytics is the science of automatically synthesizing big data with mathematical and computational sciences to make smarter decisions about the future. Ayatas prescriptive analytics software not only predicts future outcomes, but also prescribes decision options to improve the predicted future and shows the impact of each decision option. Ayatas customers include Fortune 500 corporations in energy and high-tech industries. For more information on Ayata, visit http://www.ayata.com
