As big data abounds, new research reveals companies are increasingly using off-premises Iaas data environments. Big hitters AWS and Microsoft are among the top cloud providers as the traditional on-premises model is shown the door. Yet the survey of over 1,000 global IT leaders also uncovered shakiness in formulating a complete digital transformation plan for their companies.
As artificial intelligence and robotic process automation (RPA) steadily improves, AI robot co-workers are not so far away from becoming a reality. Despite scaremongering that AI will precipitate sudden mass redundancies, recent research has found staff are looking forward to smart tech ‘colleagues’. A notable 88% of respondents would be comfortable with the prospect of working alongside intelligent machines, while a further 91% are comfortable with the prospect of managing them.
IBM is reportedly set to undergo a rebrand of massive proportions. The tech giant is allegedly set to merge its Global Technology Services (GTS) section with Global Business Services (GBS) under the single name of “IBM Services” in order to strengthen its position within the IT services industry. Big Blue told staff it is making the change to “increase awareness of the powerful talent that GBS and GTS bring to our engagements,” according to internal communications seen by The Register.
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".
