Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, August 15, 2013 7:37 AM

Stay with this article as it picks up speed the more you read. The new concept to me is the idea of "semantic" correctness. Since HTML tags can be used in many way knowing the "semantically correct" way to tag your markup protects meaning and SEO now and in the future.

In the future HOW use a tag will be as important as what tag you are using. Semantics will be attached so learning to correctly "semantically code" is going to be THE NEXT SEO.

Big Data Is the Only Way to Compete With Google

Big Data Is the Only Way to Compete With Google | Technology, Big Data, Business Intelligence | Scoop.it
While Google’s search business continues to grow and expand successfully, it isn’t without potential competitors in major areas of its permeating business model.
Greg Mudd's insight:

While Google may be the 800 pound gorilla when it comes to search, their other service lines could see potential competitors trying to edge in. The article specifically takes a look at both Amazon and Salesforce. 


With Amazon, their data could be more valuable for advertisers than the data Google has as Amazon has a very good understand of a users purchasing intent. This data can be used to expand Amazon's advertising business opening up new fronts of competition with Google.

 

Salesforce, which has been a leader in CRM, B2B marketing and SaaS has been making acquisitions over the past few years to help position themselves into a fully integrated marketing platform and giving them plenty of data to connect between end sales and social marketing.

Is Coding the New Second Language? | Technology, Big Data, Business Intelligence | Scoop.it
Kids may know their way around a computer, but in order to get a job in the new economy, they will have to know how to write a program, not just use one

Via John Evans, Bruno De Lièvre
Greg Mudd's insight:

Coding is an essential skill in this technology driven world and is an extremely useful skill for everyone to learn... it's such a shame that many schools still don't offer coding classes until high school and even then the classes are fairly rudimentary and in some areas has the stigma of being for nerds which is a real shame.

Iconic Mind: Our Blog Corner: Dominate The Marketplace with a Mobile-Enabled Sales Army

Iconic Mind: Our Blog Corner: Dominate The Marketplace with a Mobile-Enabled Sales Army | Technology, Big Data, Business Intelligence | Scoop.it

The analogy between business and war is not a new one.  CEOs have been known to quote The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings and On War for years.  The reason is because there are strong parallels between the two.  Your business has competitors trying to steal market share from you, and you have to defend yourself from losing clients the same way an army has to defend its homeland.  At the same time, in order to grow you have to win new business by going on the offensive and either taking existing clients from the competition or landing new clients just entering the marketplace.

Greg Mudd's insight:

Business agility is the ability of your organization to be able to adapt quickly and effectively in an efficient manner to changes in the business environment.

 

If you're looking at ways to make your organization more agile and faster to react to the marketplace then one solution to consider is cloud computing. 

 

The more of your critical business intelligence you can store in a central location, which can be accessed from anywhere, the more easily you will be able to react to changes in the marketplace and grab an advantage over the competition.

Big Data To Recognize Individuals Instead of Stereotypes | SmartData Collective

Big Data To Recognize Individuals Instead of Stereotypes | SmartData Collective | Technology, Big Data, Business Intelligence | Scoop.it
The problem is that no two people are actually the same, let alone a whole group of them. However usually they’re similar enough that you can get away with grouping them together with decent results.
Greg Mudd's insight:

Instead of receiving coupons for baby food when your household consists only of you, imagine receiving offers tailored specifically for you based on your behavior. Big Data gives the promise of businesses being able to better target your needs and desires and though you may be treated as a predictive output of a Big Data customer segmentation algorithm, it’s a lot closer to being treated like an individual than the way you, as a consumer, are currently being treated.
