By Kevin Casey for Channel PartnersADTRAN CONNECT — If you want to sum up ADTRAN CONNECT 2017 in a word, try: “software.” As in: software-defined access and the future of the network. There were plenty of related keywords, too: open, programmable, platform. And, of course, more than enough networking acronyms and terms, including the likes of: NG-PON2, G.fast, FTTH and the two-character giant that seems to loom ever larger over the network universe these days, 5G.
Explaining hybrid cloud to your fellow IT pros isn’t always a clear-cut discussion. People and organizations may define the term differently, plus it’s easy to get lost in the technical weeds. How, then, should CIOs and their team members discuss hybrid cloud in plain terms with the board of directors and other non-technical stakeholders – the CFO comes to mind – who have a major say in your budget and your ability to drive business strategy? It’s time to increase your level of planning.
The headline makes it sound like a cool summer breeze. But finding, attracting, and then keeping the IT pros necessary for effectively managing a mix of private and public clouds, often across multiple vendors, as well as legacy infrastructure? It’s no easy task for most CIOs and their teams. “Finding an individual who has a strong grasp over both private and public cloud environments is tough,” says Patrick Circelli, regional recruiting manager at the IT staffing firm Mondo.
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".
