Lewis Hamilton won the Formula One drivers’ championship for the fourth time in 2017. He was the fastest driver, in the best car – his Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team also won the constructors’ title. While Hamilton’s speed and aggressive driving style have been lauded, a less heralded aspect of his victory was the data analytics used to give him the best possible chance of winning. The Mercedes car contains over 200 sensors, some of which collect data points up to 1000 times a second.
MPs have said it is “deeply worrying” that even the slightest delay in the government’s new customs IT system could mean it not being ready for the UK’s deadline for leaving the European Union (EU). The Home Affairs committee has called for the government to prioritise contingency planning in case the £157m Customs Declaration Service (CDS) being developed by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is delayed or lacks full functionality by the Brexit date at the end of March 2019.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has insourced about 400 staff from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as part of bringing a major outsourcing deal for application development, maintenance and support back in house. The move was completed in March 2017 without any external announcements. The former HPE workers are not employed directly by DWP as civil servants, however.
@InfoMgmtExec@SAP I'm not suggesting ERP and CRM are part of digital transformation - nor that every startup succeeds, only that UK companies are not investing enough in IT and govt ought to provide incentives for them to do so
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
