22 April, 2015 - 23:12

Jahia is aiming at launching a community project at the Apache Foundation, whose mission it is to provide software for the public good. One of the Apache Foundation many strengths in this respect is to provide a license that is both business-friendly and open to any development community. Thus this project would allow all software vendors, brands, organizations and communities to use an open, agreed upon and community-enriched engine to collect and share user context data.

How Retailers are Creating a 360-degree Shopping Experience

20 April, 2015 - 10:18

Competition in the retail world is as cutthroat as ever. With so many retailers out there, the race is on to reach as many customers as possible with the best offers possible. Businesses that go into this race expecting to use traditional methods, however, will quickly find themselves falling behind the rest of the pack. We live in a much different world now where customers are more knowledgeable and empowered than ever before. Thanks to the internet, consumers can find out all they want to know about specific products before ever deciding to purchase them. This has forced retailers to raise their game when it comes to wooing current and prospective customers. It’s not enough anymore to simply offer a better product at a lower price. Today’s retail world requires businesses to offer a more complete and satisfying customer experience. To achieve this, many retailers are working hard to create what’s known as the 360-degree shopping experience.

Smart Wearables and Cloud Security: The Rise of Mobile Malware

17 April, 2015 - 15:11

When you look at the greatest technological advances of the past several decades, it's clear that software has taken the lead. While hardware continues to improve, get smaller and do more with less, it's software that has enabled feature-rich operating systems that can exist on an interface barely larger than your hand. Hardware has maintained a more or less consistent form. It's no wonder then that many corporations are still painfully in the dark ages when it comes to the increase in the BYOD ecosystem. As the new Apple Watch and other smart watches begin to hit the scene, it's going to become increasingly difficult for network engineers to keep company networks secure. Even The Federal Trade Commission has warned about the threats posed by these small, connected devices stating that the data they collect should be limited for security reasons.

When new hardware does come onto the scene, it's widely talked about and speculated upon. Google Glass has failed to catch on so far, but the Apple Watch is likely to spur growth in the smartwatch industry and encourage other manufacturers to create their own versions. Google's Android Wear selection has already entered the market with good success. However, the Apple Watch is likely to be the most popular new piece of hardware introduced in 2015. A boon for Apple, and a virtual nightmare for IT administrators.

Beating Google AdWords: How Social Media Platforms are Expanding Their Advertising Reach

9 April, 2015 - 10:21

Many social media sites are trying to push back against the juggernaut known as Google and its mammoth advertising operation. Perhaps it’s no secret how important advertising revenue is to most social media platforms. After all, free services have to find money to operate from somewhere. Fully taking advantage of advertising, however, has been tricky thanks to Google AdWords and its powerful influence across the web. AdWords’ reach is impressive and plays a crucial role in Google’s growth. In fact, AdWords is the mega-corporation’s primary source of revenue. Needless to say, many social media platforms see this and want to expand their own advertising efforts in a push to compete with Google every step of the way. Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn know the value of a more expansive advertising scope, and though each is working independently of the other, it’s fascinating to see that they’ve come up with similar strategies to achieve their goals.
