Domino Data Lab Uses the Domino Effect to Improve Data Science Processes

Domino is an addictive game – just one flick of the first domino can send a chain of others falling, creating a fascinating display of physical force and physics. While most people are familiar with the traditional set with 28 double six dominoes, larger sets are available for games requiring more tiles and players interested in longer domino chains. The most popular type of domino play involves positional games. In a positional game, each player places a domino edge to edge against another, with matching values either identical (e.g., 5 to 5) or forming some specified total. The players then take turns playing these dominoes. The game ends when a single player cannot play a domino from his hand or all the players have played all their dominoes.

Domino Data Lab provides a centralized platform for executing and hosting data science models in order to provide internal stakeholders with self-service access to the results. This can be done using a variety of languages, IDEs and data sources. This centralization enables the modeling process to be scaled in order to handle large datasets and to run on a wide range of hardware.

It also enables parallel execution of the model, allowing multiple users to work on the same dataset simultaneously. In addition, the platform allows for rapid development and deployment of the model. This is possible because the model is run on the Domino server, minimizing the time required to develop, test and deploy a new version of the model.

A Domino Data Lab blog post describes how the company uses the power of a domino effect to improve data science processes. The author writes, “Domino’s goal is to provide a fast, simple and effective way for businesses of all sizes to leverage data analytics. To do this, we use a domino effect to help our clients make better decisions and achieve their business goals.”

Domino’s domino effect extends beyond the company’s retail stores to its delivery service and even its online ordering system. Its corporate culture promotes open communication and listening to its employees. Domino’s CEO recently made an appearance on an episode of Undercover Boss in which he was sent to visit several Domino’s restaurants and observe how its employees interact with customers.

Domino’s success is based on the ability to listen and respond to customer feedback. In addition, the company’s leadership structure focuses on developing and empowering its employees. This has allowed Domino’s to become a top workplace. For example, the Undercover Boss episode featured a Domino’s employee who addressed an issue raised by a customer. The company responded by putting a new policy in place to resolve the problem.
