Social Business + Big Data = Business intelligence Every day we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. Yes, that sounds like quite a lot – and it is! To put it into perspective, we have produced more than 90% of all online data that exists in the world today within these past two years. BDAs – what exactly is it again? Breaking down BDAs’ structure to us, Raj De Datta’s article explains: “Every user that joins LinkedIn adds a signal to the LinkedIn BDA stack, enabling the recruiter to harness all their millions of profiles, not just their individual silos. The point of Big Data and thereby BDAs is neither marketing nor PR. Social Performance Software: helping us to retrieve business intelligenceEnter Social Performance Software.

www.ibiza-voice.com/story/news/4694?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter More than any other genre of music, dance music is obsessed with its own heritage. Despite having existed for a shorter period of time than most other strains of contemporary music, house and techno (and everything in between) propel themselves forward by recycling their history. From revivals of old sounds, to promoters putting on parties in warehouses in hope of capturing a by-gone aesthetic, to the rapturous reception a well-placed ‘classic’ track will receive when played in a set, retrospection is deeply engrained within dance-music culture. And amidst the heady fog of crass nostalgia and cash-ins, it is all too easy to perceive dance-music history in terms of the enshrined mythology that it is often presented, rather than how it really was. From legendary NYC loft parties to acid house raves in ‘89 to the early days at DC-10, it is often difficult to distinguish the rose-tinted memories from reality. 01.
Infographics: overview and best practices The use of infographics also known as information graphics in web design is a quite new trend in the designer community. They are mostly used in order to represent complicated information or workflows that need to be easily understood. Complicated maps, technical writing, mathematics, science and other fields usually go for infographics in order to represent the information clearly and as simple as possible. Infographics are meant to represent conceptual information without intimidating the end user. Designers should definitely pay more attention to representing information easier because in some cases using infographics is more than necessary in order for the big flow of information to be pleasant for the eye as well as understood. If the flow of information is too big, you can simply split it up into logical categories or chunks of information and try to represent it by using graphics and numbers.

Death by Desk Job: How to Fight It [INFOGRAPHIC] Your desk job can kill you. At the very least, it will likely make you fatter, sicker and more stressed out than a job that doesn't require sitting down and hunching over a keyboard for a third of the day.

[Infographic] Taking HTML5 to the Next Level for Mobile By 2013, there will be more than 1 billion HTML5-capable browsers in use throughout the world. Applications for those HTML5 browsers will be created by 2 million HTML Web developers, according to research from IDC. There is no question that HTML5 is going to be a major factor in mobile development during the next five to 10 years. The rise of HTML5 does not mean the death of native applications, but as the standard progresses, many developers will begin to incorporate more HTML5 into their apps than native code. By 2015, IDC predicts that 80% of all mobile apps will be based wholly or in part on HTML5. It makes sense: As HTML5 evolves, it gains access to many features that were once the sole domain of native code. It takes a village to raise a child - or, in this case, HTML5. But the mobile universe is not quite ready for a full-fledged HTML5 ecosystem yet. This is where Ringmark comes in.

[Infographic] How People Use iPhones and Androids in China Did you know that the majority of Android users in China are on a 2G network? That about 44% of Android users in China use HTC phones? That almost 14% of iPhone users in China have spent $10-$20 on paid apps, with 9% spending more than $50? China has the largest mobile-phone installed base (by volume) in the world, and just as it is in the U.S., the Chinese market is an Android vs. iPhone war. As it is in the U.S., the top app categories in China are games and social networking, according to Chinese mobile ad firm Guohe. Also just like in the U.S., content is apparently king in China. Android leads in Chinese smartphone usage, with 54% of the market share on Guohe’s network. Chinese users love to use their apps, too, which makes the demographic really no different from the rest of the world. Interestingly, Android users in China do not pay for apps, while many iPhone users do. Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock
