Late afternoon panels at the SMB Cloud Summit focused on cloud risk - and mitigation through GRC, as well as cloud opportunity that is available to the smaller organization. Michael O'Neil, principal analyst at InsightaaS set the stage for the SMB Cloud Summit governance, risk, compliance, and cloud security panel by noting that governance is not function of the cloud or an IT function, it flows from the board of directors or owner.
In a muted version of Dragon's Den, afternoon panelists at the SMB Summit argued the primacy of productivity and collaboration apps, security, and integration/management. The SMB Cloud Summit packed in a full day of panels and discussions. In part one, we took a look at the morning's proceedings, which focused on planning for the cloud and selecting a provider. Now let's wander through the afternoon as panels got into actually running that cloud implementation.
InsightaaS, the Government of Ontario and DCD hosted an SMB Cloud Summit in Toronto last week aimed at helping the small business segment better understand the mechanics and business benefits of cloud adoption. While 80 percent of US companies have adopted the cloud, only half of Canadian businesses have done so, according to Joanne Anderson, director of technology adoption and regional growth in the Ontario Investment Office (OIO), and that needs to change.
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".
