Emerging Tech Evangelist in Los Angeles, California
I jumped on the high tech fast track long before the internet was born and the sci fi of yesterday became the reality of today. Like a good roller coaster, the ride has been exciting, challenging, and breathtaking - and that's why I keep getting back in line.
Hi, my name is Tamara (rhymes with "camera"), and I’m the Director of Emerging Technologies for SAS Best Practices, a thought leadership team at SAS Institute.
My current focus is on big data technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), and open source (specifically, as it interplays with proprietary software). But if you really want to get me fired up, let's chat about the data privacy and security issues that are top of mind now due to the aforementioned topics.
My current obsession? Making my dumb home smart. Thank you, IoT.
I have fun speaking and writing about all this stuff, too. Check out some of my articles: Brand Quarterly, CMSWire, Datafloq, KDNuggets, LinkedIn, ODBMS.org, SAS Customer Intelligence, SAS Data Roundtable, Smart Data Collective, and Social Media Today.
