The last year has seen a move by IT vendors to introduce increasing amounts of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and cognitive systems. How well the solutions meet the claims made by vendors is not part of this article. What is important is that companies are feeding these systems vast amounts of data to do advanced analytics. The advantage of using these systems is that they are able to deliver solutions far faster than data scientists and security analysts can.
At IBM InterConnect in Las Vegas, Enterprise TImes had an opportunity to catch up with Sebastian Krause, General Manager, IBM Cloud Europe. Over the last two years, IBM has been moving its messaging to position Hybrid Cloud as its key cloud offering. At IBM InterConnect, it changed the definition of hybrid cloud. This, it claims, has been driven by customers. Krause explained what the change in emphasis was about and what it means for customers.
Enterprise Times recently visited Forcepoint’s HQ in Austin, Texas where we got to sit down with Chief Scientist, Dr Richard Ford and talk cybersecurity. It was an interesting conversation that looked at WannaCry and the failure of many companies to stop thinking of a physical perimeter around their network. We talked about a range of challenges that are hurting companies today and whether there is a role for HR when it comes to securing the enterprise.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
