Trends Critical to E-commerce Growth in 2015
Sep 24, 2015
This year, worldwide business-to-consumer e-commerce is projected to total more than $1.7 trillion, with mobile purchases representing almost $300 billion of that amount. Obviously every e-commerce business wants to get as big a slice of that market as they can, so they try to stand out and get the attention of consumers, a large portion of whom use mobile devices for shopping. What are the best ways for a company to outperform its rivals in 2015? The key is understanding eight current trends. Greater complexity is being built into content, but text still matters. Many companies are finding that consumers are especially responsive to more dynamic, interactive features on e-commerce sites, comments e-commerce visual specialist Russ Somers of Invodo. What types of content, specifically? “Images that spin and rotate, interactive videos that have clickable elements that allow consumers to learn more about products and purchase them, and guided online walkthroughs of consumer electronics devices,” says Somers. While Somers is right that sophisticated visuals can be effective at engaging consumers, it’s also important not to forget the basics: words. After all, original copy (i.e., any kind of unique text) is still considered the most valuable form of content by three in five marketers […] The post Trends Critical to E-commerce Growth in 2015 appeared first on Superb Internet.
KPI Focus: Know Your SaaS Company’s Key Performance Indicators
Sep 16, 2015
What are the most important metrics for SaaS? Here are 5 big ones, one of which is churn. After looking over the metrics, we will review a simple way to reduce churn. Key Performance Indicators Monthly Recurring Revenue Churn Cost per Acquisition Mean Revenue per Customer Lifetime Value Reducing Churn with Speed Key Performance Indicators What are the key performance indicators for your company? In other words, what metrics do you most need to watch to figure out the best direction and how you might need to change? There is a lot of overkill with metrics. Data is helpful, but it quickly makes a situation chaotic and even more difficult to understand if you’re trying to focus on dozens of metrics at once. As a basic rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to eliminate the amount of metrics you track simultaneously to 10, according to KISSmetrics market analyst Lars Lofgren. Otherwise, you can end up in the classic situation of “not being able to see the forest for the trees.” “When you’re tracking dozens of metrics at once, it’s nearly impossible to focus on the most important trends and act on them,” says Lofgren. “There’s just too much going on.

Tapping Innovation: How Developers Leverage Cloud
Sep 10, 2015
Introduction: Developers Key in a Data-Infused World Cloud as a Critical Tool for Development The Role of Open Source True Distributed Cloud for the Best Results Introduction: Developers Key in a Data-Infused World Developers are essential to the new economy. First, just think about the scale of data – even from a year ago: Think your post is important? It’s got competition. Every minute, 2.5 million instances of Facebook sharing occur. Do you think search engine optimization might be important? Do you think it might be getting more sophisticated? Every single minute, over 4 million search requests are placed with Google. Do you want to make a living off of your YouTube show? So does your neighbor. Every minute, 72 hours of new video is uploaded to YouTube. In other words, the sheer amount of raw activity occurring in the digital universe is staggering. Because that activity is so intense, data is becoming more valuable all the time. Forbes Data Driven Business editor Howard Baldwin points out how powerful data is by looking at two companies, one that is data-based and one that is physical. Baldwin contrasts Facebook to a major airline, United Airlines, which he describes as “a company that actually […] The post Tapping Innovation: How Developers Leverage Cloud appeared first on Superb Internet.
Toward a Fully FISMA-Compliant Federal Cloud
Sep 03, 2015
FISMA compliance is a fact of life for federal agencies. However, many agencies aren’t meeting regulatory requirements with their cloud computing services. What is FISMA? How to Achieve FISMA Compliance FISMA Cloud Compliance Has Holes The FISMA-Compliant Cloud What is FISMA? The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) was passed by U.S. Congress to create a management structure in order to safeguard federal data, systems, and properties against environmental disasters, cyberattacks, and human error. FISMA was a piece of the Electronic Government Act of 2002. FISMA gives certain agencies regulatory powers to maintain data security throughout federal systems, explained Margaret Rouse in TechTarget. “The act requires program officials, and the head of each agency, to conduct annual reviews of information security programs,” she said, “with the intent of keeping risks at or below specified acceptable levels in a cost-effective, timely and efficient manner.” How to Achieve FISMA Compliance The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) outlines the process to meet and maintain FISMA compliance: Using the security category definitions from FIPS 199, figure out what the impact level is for the data you want to secure. Determine the basic mechanisms that are necessary. Further improve your security stance with […] The post Toward a Fully FISMA-Compliant Federal Cloud appeared first on Superb Internet.

Cloud Providers Treating Customers Like Barflies Scout’s Explanation of Steal Time at AWS How Much is Steal Time Affecting You? Movie Tickets Analogy Importance for Web Apps 4-in-1 Cloud VM Cloud Providers Treating Customers Like Barflies Almost all cloud service providers are overselling their resources to a ridiculous degree. They don’t provide real resource guarantees because they don’t want to: it’s easier to pack in as many customers as they can, especially since that terrible service quality is so standard in the industry. The quality of what you are getting in a cloud service at most providers is like bathrooms at dive bars (enter at your own risk). If everyone in the dive bar market is agreeing not to raise their cleanliness level into the Not Completely Disgusting range, customers are less irritated when they walk into another cesspool. Dive bars are designed for barflies: you can get the bar atmosphere for cheap, but don’t expect to be treated with respect. The basic philosophy shared by many cloud providers and dive bar owners is: “Everyone else is providing something awful, so why don’t we?” Just as the result of that philosophy leads to dirty bathrooms in the dive bar, it […] The post Neighbor Stealing Your CPU vs. 4-in-1 Machine appeared first on Superb Internet.
Projection: 15 Million Developers in Cloud by End of 2015
Aug 27, 2015
As cloud becomes the central development environment, cloud services are aiming to best meet developer needs. Infrastructure-as-a-Service Growing Astronomically Developers Rush Toward the Cloud Why Developers are Critical to Your Mission Setting the Stage for Great Developers The CIO vs. the Developer Distributed Storage for Developer-Grade Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service Growing Astronomically Cloud is growing extraordinarily fast. You probably have heard that, but a new report from International Data Corporation (IDC) backs up what previous analyses have suggested. The IDC report predicts that the amount spent on cloud infrastructure will expand 21% year- over-year between December 2014 and December 2015. It will rise from representing 28% of all infrastructure costs to 33% of them, totaling $32 billion by year’s end. The rate at which businesses continue to switch over to cloud platforms will continue to be high through the end of the year and into 2016, explains Kuba Stolarski of IDC. “As the market evolves into deploying 3rd Platform solutions and developing next-gen software,” he says, “organizations of all types and sizes will discover that traditional approaches to IT management will increasingly fall short of the simplicity, flexibility, and extensibility requirements that form the core of cloud solutions.” Developers Rush Toward the […] The post Projection: 15 Million Developers in Cloud by End of 2015 appeared first on Superb Internet.
Digital Duncecap: 9 Memorable Cloud Fails
Aug 25, 2015
Cloud industry market leaders are incredibly successful in the category of failure. Here are some top trending #CloudFails from the technology’s brief history. At Superb Internet, we consider almost ALL cloud providers to be fails because they’re overselling their services, leading to unnecessarily spotty performance. Before we get into why what we offer is vastly superior to the often disappointing speed and reliability of our competitors, let’s look at nine of the biggest historic cloud fails. Netflix Goes Down Thanks to Amazon This year, AWS proudly let us know that its cloud computing division was worth almost $5 billion. For growth, they get a gold star. But as the dangers of eating contests reveal, bigger is not always better. Netflix was one of the original mega-companies to try out Amazon Web Services (AWS). At first glance, it looked like a match made in heaven. “On the one hand, there was Netflix, whose streaming services were growing far faster than the company could maintain with internal IT resources,” says Andrew Froehlich of InformationWeek, “[O]n the other, retail giant Amazon was on the bleeding edge of the cloud computing movement and ready to make a splash with its new venture.” Sadly for anyone hoping […] The post Digital Duncecap: 9 Memorable Cloud Fails appeared first on Superb Internet.
Not All Cloud Services are Created Equal
Aug 23, 2015
Think about any field, and you can identify the promise of the service provided and how that promise is left unfulfilled by many businesses due to their greed and willingness to leave their customers unsatisfied. Two obvious examples: Preventable medical errors are the third-highest cause of death in the United States, suggesting that many American “healthcare” providers are doing an awful job at living up to their name. In academia, the cost of for-profit colleges is almost twice that of in-state public four-year school tuition ($15,130 vs. $8893), but employability for for-profit graduates is 22% lower that it is for public institutions and private nonprofit schools. Should you go to the doctor when you get sick? Maybe, but be careful what clinic or hospital you choose – apparently there’s a fair amount of collateral damage. Is an education worth it anymore? Sure, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that a diploma is just as valuable no matter where you go. Not every doctor will kill you, and not every diploma is worthless, though. The message here is that quality still matters. It matters in technology just as it does in other industries. It’s critical when choosing cloud providers because cloud […] The post Not All Cloud Services are Created Equal appeared first on Superb Internet.
Cloud Fuels Worldwide Adaptation & Predictive Analytics for E-commerce
Aug 21, 2015
The adaptability and predictive analytics of cloud allow e-commerce companies to excel in an increasingly complex marketplace. Global Adaptation Predictive Analytics Strong Cloud with Distributed Storage Global Adaptation Clarins, a French makeup manufacturer, decided to aggressively target the Chinese market in 2012. The company had previously only made sales in China via its affiliates. It wasn’t easy to figure out how to maintain its current brand presence and properly position itself with Chinese consumers, explains online sales VP Laurent Malaveille. Using a cloud e-commerce system makes it easy to split those two messages. In years past, running a complete second website could have been prohibitively expensive. Today, system maintenance is entrusted to a cloud provider. Since the basic technical aspects of Clarins’ infrastructure are covered, the IT and e-commerce teams are able to focus on more specific work concerns such as the company’s rewards program. The Chinese site was a huge success, with double-digit revenue increase through the first six months. The company currently operates a dozen e-commerce websites worldwide, each of them tailored toward the specific regional culture and powered by a cloud server. One reason the company is using cloud is that it wants to be able to […] The post Cloud Fuels Worldwide Adaptation & Predictive Analytics for E-commerce appeared first on Superb Internet.
Social Entrepreneurship Accelerates with Cloud Computing

By running data science projects in the cloud, social entrepreneurs such as actor Adrian Grenier can tackle poverty and other global problems. Business for Social Good Cloud Data to Improve Lives No More Head-Scratching Recovery from Natural Disasters Building Your Social Entrepreneurship Tool Business for Social Good In the HBO show Entourage, Matt Damon has to call in backup from Lebron James to convince Vincent Chase to give more than $10,000 to his children’s charity. In the background is the private plane in which Chase will be flying momentarily to Italy. Essentially, Chase is being shamed into giving more money – relenting and casually telling his assistant to stroke a check for $150,000. As it turns out, the guy who plays Chase, Adrian Grenier, does not need to be convinced to pay it forward. Alongside his acting, he created the content platform SHFT in 2010, which focuses on movies, cuisine, industrial design, and creative projects that promote environmentalism. In turn, he has been given a new position at Dell as its social good advocate. It’s a fancy title, but does it mean anything? The short answer is yes.

Lessons That Cloud Computing is Teaching the Car Industry
Aug 18, 2015
Transportation is about getting different places within the physical world, while cloud is fundamentally about moving around in the virtual world. Regardless of this different focus, the car can learn much from the cloud. Transportation is a vast field of industry. The top five car companies bring in more than $822 billion in just one year. Although automotive is enormous, it’s vulnerable to the same technological disruption that is occurring elsewhere. Zipcar, Lyft, and the ultra-popular but much-loathed Uber are changing the way that we get ourselves from place to place. IT has been in rapid transition just as transportation has. Looking at the computing transition from physical, legacy systems to cloud architectures shows us the path forward for automotive companies – as indicated by these five lessons. 1. Renting is the budget-friendly choice. In the pre-cloud era (that of the second platform, the common client-server setup), those who rented IT basically expected to pay more and get less. However, as the volume of IT consumers expanded and technology was adjusted to optimize efficiency, renting became the way to go. “Today’s cloud IT vendors have both the buying power and the operational discipline to minimize the cost to the customer of […] The post Lessons That Cloud Computing is Teaching the Car Industry appeared first on Superb Internet.

ITIL Category #3 – Service Transition ITIL Category #4 – Service Operation ITIL Category #5 – Continual Service Improvement Remembering the Fundamentals Getting Certified Healthy Skepticism Multiple Certifications = Checks & Balances ITIL Category #3 – Service Transition No matter how much you strategize and design your service approach, business is fundamentally about adaptation. Transitioning from one service to another has become even more common during the age of cloud self-service provisioning. New systems can be implemented almost instantly, which raises the possibility that processes can be potentially thrown into disarray. Systems must be set up properly so that tasks can be conducted as planned, without interruption. Service transition involves a range of complexity, though – it could mean including an additional column within a PDF report or adoption of different enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. Remember again that ITIL centers IT specialists on the services that they are providing rather than the technology itself. “The focus of the conversation with the customer is not on the ‘ERP System,’ but instead on the new capabilities and the timing of the switchover,” says Heusser. “That’s […] The post What is ITIL Certification?

Origins of ITIL How IT is Framed by the Library Four General Roles within IT Provision ITIL Category #1 – Service Strategy ITIL Category #2 – Service Design ITIL-Certified = Ordering off a Menu Many people consider IT a little obtuse just because of the sheer volume of terminology. Just think about it: OS, GUI, SSD, DDoS… The list goes on. Certification standards and compliance mechanisms are no different from the rest of the field: HIPAA, HITECH, PCI-DSS, SSAE, ISO, ITIL. There are just a lot of different things to keep straight, and it’s understandable that many of us have a surface-level knowledge of certain elements. In the case of ITIL, many people know to check if a vendor has that certification but don’t know much about what it entails. Is that you? Here is a quick guide that gives you a sense of what the certification means so that you can know how it helps, whether internally or through an IT vendor.

10 Reasons for ISO 9001 Certification: Showboating vs. Integrity
Aug 13, 2015
Why are we certified for ISO 9001:2008, and why might going through that process make sense for any organization? ISO 9001 is a standard established by the International Organization for Standardization (with the confusing acronym ISO) – a body that creates voluntary technical guidelines for international business and technology, founded in 1947 in Geneva, Switzerland. The ISO 9001 standard is straightforwardly entitled “Quality Management Systems” (QMS). Although people often think of the ISO standards as a way for tech companies to prove their credibility, they are helpful for any type of business, yours included. If you do decide you want to get certification for the standard, you would need to get audited by a registrar that would come out and physically check your systems and processes. Here are 10 reasons to answer the question above: why it might be relevant for your organization and is especially important for choosing IT service providers. Ability to Meet Needs First, let’s focus on some of the reasons that this standard is helpful for IT vendors. Sometimes a customer will say that they can only work with an organization that is certified for ISO 9001. The service provider goes out and gets audited – […] The post 10 Reasons for ISO 9001 Certification: Showboating vs. Integrity appeared first on Superb Internet.
How IT Can Benefit from ISO 27001 Certification
Aug 12, 2015
Background of the ISO Wide Applicability of ISO Importance of ISO 27001:2013 Certified Partnership You may think of the certifications from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as simply a way that IT service providers can demonstrate their adherence to universally accepted practices and principles. Similar to physician board certification or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification in construction, ISO information technology standards essentially provide third-party validation so that you don’t just have to trust marketing material. In fact, ISO isn’t just about figuring out what IT companies deserve your business. It can also be helpful in assessing your company’s own IT policies and procedures. Background of the ISO The International Organization for Standardization is the most prominent creator of worldwide standards. The collaborative group essentially creates a commonly understood language of expectations that businesses can use as guidelines to improve themselves and to prove their credibility to potential customers and partners. The goal of the organization really is to reach across national borders so that knowledge on how to conduct business safely and effectively can be shared unfettered. In 1969, soon after Olle Sturen became the group’s Secretary General, he announced that the mission to globalize technical […] The post How IT Can Benefit from ISO 27001 Certification appeared first on Superb Internet.
The Most Effective CRM on Cloud Based Environment

Customer satisfaction being the underlining statement of manufactures and marketers of goods and services, business processes are being monitored to achieve that under every circumstance. An entire business cycle from generating prospects to closing and providing after sales support is monitored by thoughtfully designed CRM packages. Customer relationship management tools are now an essential part of business automation as these create the route to creation of a new client base. Implementation of a customized and responsive CRM package is a concern of all current generation businesses. CRM package developed by Salesforce addresses this issue with perfection. For business nowadays it is essential to have separate functional areas integrated. In a manufacturing setup there are different divisions looking after production, marketing, deliveries, materials management, maintenance and support. Though these functions are independent they are all part of an integrated process. CRM provides the basis of this process and works towards total customer satisfaction.

In the case of a cybercriminal hack, one study – the 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study – found that the astronomical expense was indicated by the average expense per record compromised: $154. Unfortunately, hackers typically aren’t just looking for one record. In fact, the 1.023 billion records that were stolen during 2014 were based on only 1541 breaches, indicates a report from Gemalto – representing a rise of 78% over the previous year. Cost is not the only thing that organizations have to worry about when a breach occurs. The cost study also looked at loss of credibility, finding that 55% of firms that don’t have continuity plans in place prior to attacks reported that their brand lost value as well.

Crude oil has to be refined – distilled to separate the desired hydrocarbons – in order to be useful. Data must be similarly processed, boiled down into the most relevant components that can power your company with insight and innovation. While data and crude oil do have similarities, one area of major difference is abundance. While there is obviously a finite amount of oil, with prices based on availability, the amount of data that businesses have at their fingertips is absolutely mind-boggling. In fact, that’s become exponentially more true in the last few years. Between the dawn of humanity and 2003, we collected an aggregate of 5 billion gigabytes of information.
