Why your data doesn't match (SiteCatalyst, comScore, Google Analytics) via @MikeWebGuy | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
It seems like every web analyst's dream is to have numbers from similar reports match across their vendors. However this is never the case. The core of the question I am addressing is: "Why don't my
Farid Mheir's insight:

Nice overview of discrepancies between web analytics data, this paper raises a very important issue when thinking about data, business intelligence and Big Data: multiple sources of data often requires a very strict data quality management process in order to interpret the data meaningfully. This paper provides a very good example of it. Thank you Mihnea.

40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

'Fog computing' is likely to play a key role in supporting smart devices like jet engines and refrigerators via @mims @wsj | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Keywords column: Computing things as close to the user as possible is going to be critical to making smart devices ranging from jet engines to refrigerators responsive enough. That's where 'fog computing' poses a challenge to 'the cloud.'

Via Fred Thiel
Farid Mheir's insight:

New MEME: fog computing. The idea that cloud computing requires very fast (and low latency) networks to deliver useful processing in real-time. But even high-speed Internet is not fast enough in most cases, cellular networks are even worse. This is where fog computing comes in: push computing to the edge f the network, in routers and devices that are close to the user devices and let them perform some of the work. Great idea, kind of like the Content Delivery Networks that Akamai and others have built over the years.


That being said, this does not appear to be a revolution but a minor evolution  in the cloud computing era.

Direct Visitors Are the Gold Standard for #Websites via @pew @statista

Direct Visitors Are the Gold Standard for #Websites via @pew @statista | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
According to new data published by the Pew Research Center, direct visitors to news websites are much more engaged than those coming from search engines or social networks. While the latter two may be indispensable for news websites to be discovered in the first place, those (returning) readers that have a site bookmarked or consciously type in its address are the ones who are truly valuable to online publishers.
Farid Mheir's insight:

The message is simple: if your website is well made, people will come back to it directly and if they do they will be "Sold" to consume your content.

I use Google autocomplete for other purpose than to simply save time. I use it for product research, trend analysis, and sometimes competitive analysis. I use it as inspiration and sometimes for guidance, when I am not sure exactly what to search for. An invaluable tool.

Farid Mheir's insight:

A most important story for anyone interested with digital disruption and transformation it has on business and life. I am particularly interested in those books that explore the extremes of the spectrum, in this case "what did people do before the Internet". Questions like these, I find, help me better understand what we should do, today, when in the middle of a digital transformation.


Other than the book "The Shallows" I recommend the following read as well:

1- the slides are made available for us to review after

2- we can pause and rewind

3- she stresses what's important: the rest we get by looking at the slides

#netNeutrality in one chart - What Happened When Netflix Paid For Direct Access To Comcast via @jyarow @bi | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it

This chart from Statista adds context to the debate around net neutrality. It shows what happened when Netflix paid for direct access to Comcast. The speed took off.

Now, imagine this across the board for many other companies. They'll be stuck at a slower speed unless they're willing to pay for a speed boost. Those costs will end up being passed on to you by the companies paying for access to the high speed lane.

Many wonder what the "net neutrality" is all about and what the big deal is. This chart says it all, along with the comment by Jay. We have been blessed with uniform access no matter who we are (OK you have to pay to get high speed Internet access over dialup) but once you do, there is no limit.

What is interesting is the steady rise of non-human traffic. With a larger and larger number of devices being connected to the Internet - from cars to watches to refrigerators - we can expect this trend to continue in the years to come.
