      Why Mobile Analytics Matters

      We’re well past the Year of Mobile and into the New Society: the one where people and devices are never really parted and mobile marketing analytics is just marketing analytics with an extra “m” for, well, “mojo.”

      You spend more than two hours a day staring at your phones. To be more specific, you spent about 141 minutes using your mobile device in 2013, up from just 20 minutes five years ago.

      10 Proof Points - Why Customer Experience Is the Next Big Thing

      If you’re bombarded as much as most marketers are with pushed content, then you’re probably skeptical of one more claim for the “next big thing”. Every marketing technology and service provider, every specialized association and publication, and every “independent” pundit has at one time or another proclaimed the “next big thing” you need to pay attention to – and of course invest in. Even when they present proof points, I take the claims with a grain (sometimes a heaping teaspoon) of salt.

    9. Preparing your Enterprise for Big Data

      Explore databasejournal.com (Oct 16 2014)

      It’s difficult to simply 'drop' big Data applications into an existing IT infrastructure and expect to run smoothly. In addition to energy and cooling requirements for new hardware to support the new big data application, other IT areas need to prepare. The major factors that determine whether enhancements will be needed to existing applications include large data storage needs, larger data transmission capacity, and the demands these will place on existing hardware and software.

      Earlier this year, Microsoft renamed its Windows Azure cloud computing platform to be just "Azure," reflecting support for operating systems other than Windows.

      Today, the company made an equivalent announcement for Windows Intune, its cloud-based mobile device and application management tool. Since it supports iOS and Android, neither of which are actually Windows, Windows Intune is now known simply as Microsoft Intune.

      Japan has chosen Fujitsu to help it regain the top spot in the global supercomputer race with an exascale machine, which at 1,000 petaflops would be about 30 times faster than the leading supercomputer today.

      The electronics giant said Wednesday it will work with the Riken research center to come up with a basic design for the supercomputer that would succeed the K computer, a machine they co-developed that grabbed the No. 1 spot in June 2011.
