Amazon Web Services likes to use its annual re:Invent conference to show off new ways cloud computing is growing in strategic markets, and it would appear it’s putting the finishing touches on a deal with health-care giant Cerner in time for next week’s conference, according to a report. CNBC reported Wednesday that AWS and Cerner are partnering to give AWS customers better health-care focused tools for running their health-care applications on the cloud.
As a steady stream of last-minute Thanksgiving shoppers poured into Whole Foods stores around the country Wednesday afternoon, Amazon Web Services chose what is traditionally the best time of the year to bury bad news to announce that it has won a significant amount of business away from its closest rival. Symantec, the giant security vendor, plans to run “the vast majority of its workloads” on AWS, the two companies said in a press release.
Salesforce continues to post strong revenue growth on its quest to put its marketing technology in the hands of every business on earth, beating financial analyst expectations for revenue and earnings per share in its most recent quarter. For the period ending Oct. 31st, right before its massive Dreamforce conference, Salesforce recorded third-quarter revenue of $2.68 billion, up 25 percent compared to last year’s third quarter and slightly higher than analyst expectations of $2.65 billion.
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".
