pew

Janna Anderson and Lee Rainie recently shared a new report out of Pew Research on the Internet of Things. They write, “This current report is an analysis of opinions about the likely expansion of the Internet of Things (sometimes called the Cloud of Things), a catchall phrase for the array of devices, appliances, vehicles, wearable material, and sensor-laden parts of the environment that connect to each other and feed data back and forth. It covers the over 1,600 responses that were offered specifically about our question about where the Internet of Things would stand by the year 2025. The report is the next in a series of eight Pew Research and Elon University analyses to be issued this year in which experts will share their expectations about the future of such things as privacy, cybersecurity, and net neutrality.” Read more

Concept Searching Metadata Survey Results Indicate Search is Not an Information Governance Consideration

Concept Searching

McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB) March 03, 2014– Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, has completed its annual SharePoint Metadata Survey and based on responses although search is important, it is not viewed as a key component in Information Governance.

 

The Concept Searching second annual survey was completed by close to 400 organizations using SharePoint and the objective was to determine how organizations are using metadata and/or the SharePoint Term Store to manage unstructured content. The survey questions sought to solicit feedback on how, or if, organizations were using metadata to drive applications such as search, records management, protection of privacy and confidential information, migration, and to a lesser extent applications such as text analytics, collaboration, and social content. The white paper containing the detailed results will be published in late March. Read more

Veveo

Mari Silbey of Light Reading recently wrote, “Pay-TV companies are investing heaps of money in new user interfaces (UIs). But, according to a new study sponsored by semantic technology company Veveo, more than 85 percent of customers still can’t find anything to watch, at least some of the time. Veveo Inc. argues that current UIs are a big part of the problem, and that operators could reduce churn significantly by improving usability and adding new navigation features.” Read more

New Survey Shows Enterprise Search Still a Top Priority

A new article reports, “Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, recently completed a survey of its clients as well as the broader marketplace. The survey focused on the use of intelligent metadata enabled solutions within enterprises from diverse industries and sizes.

The results of the survey indicated the number one priority is improving enterprise search.” Read more

Text and Sentiment Analytics Team In Servicing The Customer Experience

Did you ever take a survey and wonder if anyone actually was paying attention to your input? Here’s a tip: If it’s more than 20 questions, ignore it, advises Sam Keninger, director of product marketing at customer experience vendor Medallia.

“That’s the old market research way of doing things, and [the resulting big report compiled by market researchers] ends up in a binder on someone’s desk and no one will read it,” he says. A shorter survey – about a page long, and generally with a question about whether you’d recommend the product or service – signifies that attention will be paid.

Why? “The survey is an extension of the customer experience itself, so the shorter it can be the better,” Keninger says. And surveys can be shorter – and more effective at telling the company what it needs to know in real-time – when they can depend more on free-form text responses. They can do that when they can leverage both text and sentiment analytic engines to understand which topics are trending and to identify emerging issues, and ideally route those in real time to the front-lines where workers understand and can take action to fix the underlying problems.

Call for Participation: An Open Data Survey

Paul Miller recently called on Open Data professionals to participate in a brief survey. He writes, “Back in 2006 as we rolled out the first public draft of the Talis Community Licence, the world of data licensing seemed a simple place. Today, the Open Knowledge Foundation‘s Data Hub contains 3,888 data sets, many of which are explicitly licensed with respect to the Open Definition. But many are still not explicitly licensed. Over at the UK Government, there are 8,619 data sets today, and an assertion that ‘in general, the data is licensed under the Open Government License.’ Too much still isn’t, of course, but they’re getting there. And then there are the many, many more data sets out on the web, not registered with repositories like the Data Hub or data.gov.uk at all. More than four years on, how are we really doing?” Read more

EMC Surveys Data Science Community, Finds Lack of Effective Data Use

The EMC Corporation has revealed the findings of the largest-ever survey of the global data science community: “Spanning the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, India and China, the EMC Data Science Study reveals and quantifies a rampant scarcity across the globe for the prerequisite skills necessary for a company to capitalize on the opportunities found at the intersection of Big Data and data analytics.  Only one-third of companies are able to effectively use new data to assist their business decision-making, gain competitive advantage, drive productivity growth, yield innovation and reveal customer insights.” Read more
