Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Looking at the infographic, it clearly reminds me about the start of "Enterprise Data Warehouse": failures by "Innacurate scope", "Technical Roadblocks" & "Siloed data and no collaboration". It looks so familiar.

Tony Agresta's curator insight, January 30, 2013 10:15 AM

Very interesting infographic.  Why do they fail?  For all of the reasons above and then some...    Over 80% of the data being collected today is unstructured and not readily stored in relational database technology burdened by complex extract, transform and load.  There's also pre-existing data, sometimes referred to as "dark data" that includes documents which need to be included and made discoverable for a host of reasons - compliance and regulatory issues are one.   Log activity and e-mail traffic used to detect cyber threats and mitigate risk through analysis of file transfers is yet another set of data that requires immediate attention.

 

Social and mobile are clearly channels that need to be addressed as organizations continue to mine data from the open web in support of CRM, product alerts, real time advertising options and more.  

 

To accomplish all of this, organizations need a platform with enterprise hardened technology that can ingest all of these forms of data in real time, without having to write complex schemas.   Getting back to the point - What do most projects fail?   If companies attempt to do this with technology that is not reliable, not durable and does not leverage the skills of their existing development organization, the project will fail.  

 

We have seen this time and time again.   MarkLogic to the rescue.   With over 350 customers and 500 big data applications, our Enterprise NoSQL approach mitigates the risk.  Why?  Our technology stack includes connectors to Hadoop, integration with leading analytics tools using SQL, Java and Rest APIs, JSON support, real time data ingestion, the ability to handle any form of data, alerting, in database analytics functions, high availability, replication, security and a lot more.  

 

When you match this technology with a world-class services organization with proven implementation skills, we can guarantee your next Big Data project will work.  We have done it hundreds of times with the largest companies in the world and very, very big data.

Adrian Carr's curator insight, January 30, 2013 10:27 AM

This is a great infographic - it shows that whilst everyone is doing it (it being "Big Data" - whatever that is...), talent is rare, technology is hard to find and the projects never end.  A far cry from the speed with which companies such as the BBC deployed MarkLogic to serve all data for the sport websites through the Olympics.  Now that was big data, delivered by a talented team in a short space of time.

Jose Jordan's curator insight, June 28, 2013 1:48 PM

OpenTopic es un servicio de curación de noticias que te permite agregar, monitorizar y filtrar cualquier número de fuentes para publicar y compartir tu selección en los sitios que prefieras desde WordPress,  canales de Social Media o boletín electrónico.

 

Dentro de OpenTopic puedes crear uno o más cuadros de mando "Topic". esencialmente muestra las páginas que donde se agregan nuevos contenidos y el contenido entrante de las fuentes que se especifiquen. Puedes saltar de un panel a otro topic con el clic de su ratón.

 

Para curar historias simplemente tienes que seleccionar los que son relevantes para tu público y se les proporciona un módulo de edición para modificar y personalizar el contenido de la historia. En este punto también se puede seleccionar en los (canales) que la historia será publicada y se puede personalizar la historia de manera diferente para cada uno de ellos.

 

Incluso hay una opción que te permite configurar algún tipo de curación automática, dándole la opción de establecer un conjunto de reglas sencillas, que cuando coincide, dará lugar a la publicación de una noticia.

 

OpenTopic te permite conectar a un mayor número de canales posibles, por lo que es fácil enviar de un lugar a tu sitio web, RSS, redes sociales y newsletter.

 

Por último, pero no menos importante, OpenTopic integra un servicio de análisis completo, capaz de informar y dar a conocer los resultados de su trabajo de curación a través de historias y canales de distribución.

 

 

Mi comentario: Excelente herramienta para redes sociales y community managers, así como especialistas de marketing web que necesitan el soporte eficaz para descubrir noticias relevantes sobre un tema y la publicación fácil de diferentes canales de una plataforma centralizada. Fácil de usar.

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education"

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education" | Content Curation: Emerging Career | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:
"This week the teacher-turned-entrepreneur Adam Below officially launched eduClipper, a platform that allows teachers and students to explore, share and contribute to a library of educational content. In both function and design, it’s essentially a Pinterest for education, with one notable difference: Because eduClipper is built exclusively for teachers and students, unlike Pinterest, you probably won’t find it blocked by your local school.

Educators and students can explore thousands of pieces of educational content, find lesson plans, resources and videos and search for the most popular content by subject or interest.

With eduClipper, users can share individual eduClips (or pieces of content) or eduClipboards (collections of content) with colleagues or students while cross-posting or embedding that content on other social platforms or sending them through email.

EduClips are created through the site’s bookmarklet (a Chrome extension), so once it’s installed in their browsers, teachers and students can grab any content they find on the web, Google Drive, Google Apps and more, and add them to their collection, i.e. their eduClipboards. Once grabbed, the site automatically grabs the source link, too, so that it’s easy to get back to the original content and easy to give proper citation.

Teachers and students can share these clipboards so that their classmates and colleagues can collaborate on assignments or in-class activities, create groups to share these resources with and align the content that’s clipped and shared to Common Core Standards. That’s the big advantage of eduClipper over Pinterest, that content can easily be organized and annotated for each class or subject by way of these learning collections. It also has the benefit of being created by a teacher who has spent the last five years searching for and curating the web’s best educational content..."

Absolutely a huge trend. Recent NRF show in NYC, curated commerce was very popular topic. Not only are brands and websites positioning themselves, newcomer companies are starting to prepare platforms to facilitate the creation of curated commerce. For example, Dell unveiled a special curated commerce project that will provide the platform for others to enable curated commerce on their website.

Fashion SKU curation is the solution to reduce consumer anxiety: A search for ‘black dress’ in Clothing & Accessories on Amazon.com brings back 65,529 results! For consumers, this large number of choices can lead to confusion, exhaustion and dissatisfied purchases, or worse, no purchase at all."
