365 Data Science

365 Data Science is perfect for beginners—people or organizations—to start doing data science. They never assume you know something before explaining it. 365 Data Science is not optimal for experienced programmers as they would find the pace too slow.

Books 24x7 is well suited for a corporate environment where employees need to have access to a variety of books on many topics. It is not so friendly for someone who is traveling because they have to be online, logged into the company network in order to read the books they have put on their shelf. One time when it is most convenient to read is on an airplane, but this is not an option in the current setup of Books 24x7.

Cons

365 Data Science

  • There was no coding in the browser supported. I know that other platforms offer this, but the 365 Team suggested that having all files on your PC resembles real-life coding much better.

  • The biggest issue I have with Books 24x7 is that you have to be online to read the books. It would be nice if there was a download option where you could read the book in an e-reader app like Kindle or Nook.
  • The portal to log in to Books 24x7 is not easy to navigate. This may be an issue internally with our Information Systems.
  • Having an option to highlight sections of the book as you are reading it would be very helpful.

Books 24x7 is a useful tool for growth, knowledge sharing, and overall intellectual health within the company. Our company has been very forward thinking in offering this to every employee. As a result, people have been able to grow in areas they may not have previously explored because of the free access to resources they may not have bothered with before they had free access to them.

Overall, Books 24x7 is relatively easy to use, and has a lot of positives going for it. It has room for improvement, but in its current state or version it is still a useful tool to enhance, encourage, and promote learning across the entire corporation. It has filled a much needed gap in learning and personal development, and is a value add to any organization.
