Competitive intelligence just got easy: thank you Saas

Competitive intelligence just got easy: thank you Saas | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

More recently, we have seen the rise of Software as a Service, or SaaS, where the application is hosted by a vendor and the data may be accessed from anywhere. Companies no longer need expensive datacenters. Industrial designers do not need to purchase pricey new systems every few years – the application evolves continually on the back end.  Accounting, once a core in-house department of every business, is now outsourced to a dedicated provider for a monthly subscription fee. And SaaS has introduced new methods to gather and analyze competitive intelligence. Here’s how.

Why do I need KM? | Harold Jarche

Why do I need KM? | Harold Jarche | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it
Why Do I Need Knowledge Management asks @HaroldJarche http://t.co/yGSKbwI2Ac PKM skills are now vital

 

"In response to my post on relevance, my long-time friend Ralph Mercer asked, “Why do I need KM at an institutional level when information is ambient at a global level and personal at a hyper local level?” This illuminates an observation made by Thierry deBaillon, which I have often quoted, “The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” We are surrounded by information and have many ways to collaborate, but unless each person has effective sense-making processes, social business networks are mostly noise amplification.

Collaborative knowledge work must be coupled with cooperative knowledge sharing. Cooperation, or sharing without any quid pro quo, is the foundation of personal knowledge management. PKM is based on playfully seeking knowledge, not task-driven searching. It is also about sharing to inspire, not because you have to. The results of PKM can then be used in collaborative work."

5 Strategies For Creating A Genius Mindset In Students

5 Strategies For Creating A Genius Mindset In Students | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

"When we hear the word genius, certain people come immediately to mind—Albert Einstein in mathematics, or Warren Buffett in investing—but what exactly sets these people apart?

 

It’s easy to simply shrug and say to ourselves, “Those people are just different.  They have something most people don’t, and it’s as simple as that.”

 

But the steps taken to arrive at a place of genius are actually more concrete, and have less to do with innate talent, than you might think."

The Future of Search: 2013 Search Engine Ranking Factors Released

The Future of Search: 2013 Search Engine Ranking Factors Released | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

 

Every two years, Moz surveys over 100 top industry professionals to compile our biennial Search Engine Ranking Factors.

 

For 2013, we've supplemented the survey with real-world correlation data from a scientific examination of over 17,000 keyword search results by Dr. Matt Peters and his data science team.

 

>> Why do we call it ranking factors?

"Correlation is not causation but it sure is a hint."
- Edward Tufte

 

>> Comparing correlation metrics:

By comparing the data, we find that high-ranking URLs are more highly correlated with page-level link metrics than general domain-level link metrics.

 

What's really incredible about this view is that Page Authority is the most highly correlated metric in this year's study at 0.39, making it one of the most highly correlated SEO metrics we've ever observed.

 

>> On-page keyword usage vs. page-level anchor text:

While the correlation with on-page keyword usage has declined over the years, the correlations with page-level anchor text remain as strong as ever.

 

For instance, the number of root domains linking to the page with partial match anchor text has a 0.29 correlation.

 

>> Social correlations vs. link metric correlations:

Social metrics have also gained a lot of attention in past years. Do they still correlate well with higher rankings?

 

Here we see social metric correlations almost equal with link metric correlations.

 

Note: Just because a metric is highly correlated, doesn't mean Google uses that metric directly.

 

>> The future of search: 128 industry experts lead the way:

Raw data only gets you so far. Often, the observations and experience from those on the ground goes much farther when working toward search marketing success.

 

This year, we invited over 100 industry experts to weigh in on how they see search engines working, what tactics are successful, and what the future might hold.

 

We asked each of our contributors about the future of search.

Towards a universal definition of competitive intelligence | Pellissier | SA Journal of Information Management

Enterprises face intense competition caused by globalisation. Consequently, enterprises look for tools that provide a competitive advantage. Competitive intelligence (CI) provides a competitive advantage to enterprises of all sizes. There are many definitions of CI but no universally accepted one. The purpose of this research is to review the current literature on CI with the aim of identifying and analysing CI definitions to establish the commonalities and differences, to propose a universal and comprehensive definition of CI and to set the borders of CI for common understanding amongst CI stakeholders.

Information Does Not Equal Insight

Information Does Not Equal Insight | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

It has long been assumed in the BI community that more information is "a good thing" when it comes to making better decisions. Except when there is too much information...when we encounter information overload.This leads us to look beyond information as the sole or, even, majority basis for decision making. Rational choice theory has long held sway as the foundation of thinking about business decision making. In recent years, the roles of intuition, gut-feeling, emotional state and intention are slowly coming to the fore as possible contributors.

What did Einstein know about Knowledge Management?

What did Einstein know about Knowledge Management? | Strategy and Information Analysis | Scoop.it

By Chris Collison:

"...top ten favourite “Einstein on KM” quotes, which have been roughly curated into a journey from information to knowledge, through to learning and simplicity, experimentation, failure, curiosity and imagination…

Information is not knowledge.The only source of knowledge is experience.Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."
