Some People Think Gamification is Dead
Jul 24, 2015
Was gamification a trend that was overhyped? Some people now say it’s dead. What they really mean is that some companies never figured out how to apply it. The Early Promise of Gamification Gamification Over for Many Businesses Big Game Successes How To Do It Right The Early Promise of Gamification Gamification is the process of essentially turning everything into a game – applying the principles and structures of games to non-game contexts. In 2011, major analyst groups forecast that the gamification market was set to explode: M2 Research predicted that the industry would expand from $100 million to gamified application by 2014. Another group said that 7 out of 10 Global 2000 companies would deploy a gamified application by 2014. These research groups were actually correct that the market would grow enormously: more than 350 high-profile projects of this type were launched between 2010 and 2014. However, many of these initiatives were unsuccessful. They simply weren’t strategized well. Market penetration, explained Heather Clancy in 2014, was under 10%. “The pioneeers have applied these platforms to all manner of challenges, from encouraging consumers to use a new product or service more liberally to reshaping employee behavior or processes,” she said. “But without well-grounded goals, […] The post Some People Think Gamification is Dead appeared first on Superb Internet.

The word Travoltify was coined by the NYT that day, a truly proud moment in journalism history – but this trait is exciting in many ways since it utilizes the Web’s interactive potential. Gamification – Definition & Stats According to the Engagement Alliance, gamification is a technological approach that uses the structure and mentality of games out of the traditional game scenario in order to “engage users and to solve problems”, adding that it “leverages game design, loyalty program design and behavioral economics to create the optimal context for behavior change and successful outcomes.” Analyst firm statistics are strong for the gamification market: M2 Research forecast that it would hit $2.8 billion by 2016, while Markets & Markets predicted that it would achieve $5.5 billion by 2018.

In that setting, the analysts can look at the technology’s suggestions and determine what needs attention — a more sophisticated human outlook on any possible threats. The cloud company or federal office will figure out how frequently reports should be issued. A control panel should have real-time information, allowing the CSP to get up-to-the-second information and fix problems as they arise. Instructional guides It’s also necessary to properly educate everyone working on your ongoing monitoring team. Create instructional guides, conduct regular staff training, and otherwise share information throughout your IT staff. “Thorough and practical training should be part of the continuous monitoring strategy itself,” says Svec, “and this training should cover the processes involved with … all elements of a continuous monitoring strategy, as well as training on the security tools being used.” Also note that the cloud company’s ongoing […] The post Building Risk-Awareness into the FISMA-Compliant Cloud (Part 2) appeared first on Superb Internet.

FISMA compliance requires ongoing monitoring that adapts as the threat landscape evolves. To stay vigilant with information security, monitoring must become dynamic, aware of emergent risks in near real-time. NIST Risk Management Framework – 6 Steps Cloud Ongoing Monitoring Plans – 6 Elements FISMA-Compliant Partnership In order to meet the requirements of the Federal Information Security Management Act, government agencies and cloud companies have to follow strict rules and parameters. One that requires refined best practices is the need for ongoing monitoring. To standardize federal efforts and clarify how to maintain compliance, the FISMA recommendations published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) contain a risk management framework that details how public-sector entities and technology services can monitor risk. NIST Risk Management Framework – 6 Steps The framework basically delineates how to set up a risk management apparatus and keep it rolling. NIST explains why focusing on risk is so important: “The management of organizational risk is a key element in the organization’s information security program and provides an effective framework for selecting the appropriate security controls for an information system—the security controls necessary to protect individuals and the operations and assets of the organization.” There are six basic […] The post Building Risk-Awareness into the FISMA-Compliant Cloud (Part 1) appeared first on Superb Internet.

PCI stands for Payment Card Industry, and the compliance body is well-known for creating the PCI Data Security Standard through its five founding members – MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, and JCB. No one is ever pleased to hear about a bunch of rules they have to follow. However, PCI compliance does have the benefit of forcing you to prioritize security if you want to take credit cards. Accepting payments online has of course become incredibly common, but it also exposes you to a huge amount of liability: just look at 2013 stats from the National Cyber Security Alliance, integrated with the number of total businesses from the US Small Business Administration (27.9 million in 2010): One out of every five small businesses get hacked each year – that’s about 5.6 million organizations!

The Intuitive CEO: Steve Jobs Chart: Big Data Adoption 4 Pillars for Success with Big Data Big Data Insights for Smart Strategy The Intuitive CEO: Steve Jobs One of the greatest traits that many business leaders have is confidence in their own sense of the right path forward – a sureness that isn’t based on rational evidence but a “funny feeling.” In other words, they value the subtle suggestions they get from their own antennae: their intuition. One person who famously used his intuition to drive ahead of competition is Steve Jobs. Jobs (yeah, that guy) led the team that created the iPad and made it so popular, which was an incredible success since there wasn’t any established demand for it. He basically convinced people that smart phones and PCs were not enough – that for certain scenarios, tablets are ideal. It really was a remarkable feat. It would have been no matter how Jobs had achieved it, but it is important to realize that he gambled on developing this new type of device because he was trusting his gut. Intuition can be incredibly valuable. Combine it with insights drawn from strong analytics, and your business can skyrocket.

Big Doesn’t Mean Off-Limits Getting Personal with Big Data Crowdsourcing as Fuel for a Better Buying Experience Better Modeling = Better Results Technology to Turn Users into Data Storytellers Big Doesn’t Mean Off-Limits As information has grown exponentially in recent years, big data has become a powerful technological ingredient. McKinsey suggests that harvesting the data and analyzing it creatively will result in $300 billion of revenue within the American healthcare system each year. If that number sounds enormous, compare it to McKinsey’s estimate of how much consumer surplus (difference between what consumers are willing and able to pay vs. the actual market price) will go up for companies incorporating device GPS locations with predictive models: $600 billion. So, we’re talking on the scale of hundreds of billions of dollars.

PCI DSS and the End of SSL

What is PCI DSS? Requirements for Compliance SSL Now Unacceptable Security for PCI DSS Your Solid Compliance Partner What is PCI DSS? The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is the most widely recognized standard for organizations that take payments online via credit and debit cards. It was developed collaboratively in 2004 by American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. The real incentive for those companies was to prevent online fraud that could threaten people’s ability to use payment cards safely on the Internet, but PCI has the added benefit of making identity theft less likely for consumers. Requirements for Compliance There are six basic intentions of the PCI standards, all of which seek to strike a balance between strong security and convenience – with primary focus on the former. The network should be completely secure. Firewalls should be deployed. In the case of wireless LANs, specially designed firewall should be used, since those networks are high-risk for spying and breaches by cybercriminals. “In addition, authentication data such as personal identification numbers (PINs) and passwords must not involve defaults supplied by the vendors,” explained tech writer Margaret Rouse. “Customers should be able to conveniently and frequently change such data.” Payment data […] The post PCI DSS and the End of SSL appeared first on Superb Internet.

How HIPAA Law Applies to Mental Health Records
Jun 29, 2015
HIPAA Guidelines on Mental Health Congressional Bills Currently Under Discussion Maintaining HIPAA Compliant Technology HIPAA compliance is fundamental for healthcare companies and the business associates who handle their patient information, but mental health is a special case. Specific considerations for mental health include: Determining what is acceptable in terms of informing caregivers and family Figuring out how records can be transferred to other practices Understanding whether sharing between providers is allowable. HIPAA Guidelines on Mental Health HIPAA discusses the requirements of covered entities related to mental health records. This information is often especially sensitive compared to other health data. The federal regulations are designed to maintain security and privacy of information but to also aim for transparency when appropriate. The HIPAA Privacy Rule states that covered entities can discuss mental health issues directly with loved ones and professionals caring for the patient. According to the mental-health guidance on the HIPAA site, mental health facilities can ask the patient if it is okay to communicate particular details to people involved in their daily care. Doctors can also inform the patient that they are going to make disclosures, allowing them a chance to say that it’s unacceptable. Another option is that they […] The post How HIPAA Law Applies to Mental Health Records appeared first on Superb Internet.
IT Analyst: The Cloud May Not Exist

What is “the cloud”? Well, it’s actually thousands of technological infrastructures, each designed and managed by individual companies. One IT analyst thinks that the notion of a single cloud is ill-conceived. “The Cloud,” or a Cheap Imitation? Cloud Snowflake Syndrome: Every Cloud is Very, Very Special Careful Review of Outsourcing & Cloud Cloud Choice is Essential “The Cloud,” or a Cheap Imitation? What’s wrong with “the cloud”? It’s easy to see the benefits in terms of expense and speed. However, the marketing nonsense, where everything is called “the cloud” when it’s actually an individual cloud that is being referenced, gets old fast. In fact, in some cases, “the cloud” is hardly a cloud at all. Take, for instance, AWS – is that “the cloud”? If it is, then why is a guy who built a $200 million cloud startup calling AWS’s monolithic cloud “irrelevant” and “weak”? IT analyst Stanton Jones of benchmarking consultancy ISG says that we should start using “a cloud” instead so that we can repair the damage of thinking that every corporation with big marketing dollars can tell us they are selling us the cloud when it’s often a cheap imitation and certainly doesn’t deserve the status of […] The post IT Analyst: The Cloud May Not Exist appeared first on Superb Internet.
How Open Government Data and Cloud Computing Create Value
Jun 24, 2015
Innovations in Power and Information Better Insights The human Side of Technology Continuing the Push The Right Cloud Innovations in Power and Information In recent years, the federal government has moved to adopt open data and cloud technology. Open data makes it easier for governmental offices: data access is more affordable, and it is simple to make information publicly available. Cloud computing renders the costs of IT infrastructure more manageable and creates an environment within which big data analytics can allow agencies to technologically address complex issues. “Cloud computing and open data take two previously costly inputs—computing power and information—and make them dramatically cheaper,” explained Center for Data Innovation analyst Joshua New. “Government agencies invest large amounts of capital and time to build and manage their own data centers and IT infrastructure.” In other words, the cloud makes planning for the future dramatically more flexible. When only traditional IT was available, it was necessary to establish capacity by predicting how many resources would be needed in the coming months and years. Changing the capacity was complicated, so organizations ended up setting up systems with extra resources so that they would not run into a wall. The cloud makes it possible for […] The post How Open Government Data and Cloud Computing Create Value appeared first on Superb Internet.
Retooling the IT Resume: When to Throw Out the Rulebook

No, as indicated by a particular client of resume revamp specialist Donald Burns.

Like Zuckerberg and Gates, Wallace has been spending his career leveraging the success he saw upfront. With this atypical history, a standard format proved unuseful when career consultant Donald Burns started rewriting Wallace’s resume. Tossing the Rulebook Burns says that his objective as a resume writer is to take two hours of conversation with a job candidate and turn it into a document that is easily digestible so that a a recruiter can get the basic gist in six seconds. “I’ve revamped over 1,200 resumes, but I had the worst time organizing Michael’s story, because his chronology is backwards,” said Burns. “The vast majority of successful people break through midway through their careers, or towards the end of their careers, but that’s not […] The post Retooling the IT Resume: When to Throw Out the Rulebook appeared first on Superb Internet.
Pluses and Minuses of India’s Interoperability of Things

As Cloud Computing Rises, Interoperability of Things Advances in India Gameplan Lacks International Charm India of Things Caves In on Itself The Road to True Interoperability As Cloud Computing Rises, Interoperability of Things Advances in India The business world is great at innovating to create particular devices and systems that will support intelligent technology in residential, governmental, and industrial environments. However, the headway made by tech companies is disorganized. Of course it is: the challenge created by the free market is the need to cooperate to advance interoperability. In fact, lack of interoperability is already a major problem today worldwide, as evidenced by American healthcare: 50% of registered nurses say that they have witnessed a medical error because devices were not integrated. India is attempting to meet this challenge head-on by creating an established national plan to build the Internet of Things in a manner that will enhance the ability of data to flow seamlessly and securely between devices. “In what amounts to the world’s first national strategy for the Internet of Things,” explains Center for Data Innovation analyst Joshua New, “the roadmap outlines the framework for a comprehensive, systematic approach to support digitization efforts in India, particularly the recently approved plan […] The post Pluses and Minuses of India’s Interoperability of Things appeared first on Superb Internet.

[continued] Hide Your Kids from the Children of the Cloud Can We Stop Robots-Gone-Wild? Aligning Yourself with the Robot Future Fast, Cheap, and Out-of-Control? [continued] It’s becoming more apparent all the time that security practices at many organizations cannot withstand the increasing sophistication of the threat landscape. If the current approach is taken by companies with robots, the negative possibilities will be much more substantial (again, the self-driving car). The reason that the Internet of Things is such a dicey climate for security has to do with the many points of access it allows. “An Internet-connected robot is still a secure control environment,” says Cooper. However, the sensors that gauge temperature throughout a manufacturing facility are not nearly as sophisticated and are easier to trick. Just as with a hacker going through a coffeepot to get to a homeowner’s PC, cybercriminals could go through the sensors to make the robot perform incorrectly. A hacker could send inaccurate temperature readings to a robot that would cause it to weld for a longer or shorter period of time, botching the task.

Why Differential Pricing Might Actually Be a Good Thing

What’s the Price? That Depends: Who’s asking? Differential Pricing & Consumer Rights The Case for Differential Pricing What About Discrimination? What About Deceptive Business Practices? Who’s Right about Differential Pricing? What’s the Price? That Depends: Who’s Asking? There used to be a bar in a town that I will leave unnamed, somewhere in the USA, called Uptown. The bar was run by a first-generation immigrant named Ania who had a thick Polish accent and was concerned that the government was out to get her – to the point that she would often accuse customers of being federal spies. You could say that Ania’s standout feature was this conspiratorial paranoia; she distrusted structure so passionately that she didn’t want her behavior to be predictable. Therefore, she charged everyone who came up to the counter a different price for their beer. To a person, people always had a strong reaction to that. They either thought it was “genius” or that it was offensive and unfair. Fast-forward to 2015, and we see the issue of differential pricing dominating big data conversations. In Washington, DC, it’s front and center for the tech industry, a hot area of political debate.

Digital data doubles every two years. Just think about how far we’ve come: a typical laptop now contains far more data than was used to send a mission to the moon in 1969. “The rate at which we’re generating data is rapidly outpacing our ability to analyze it,” said University College of London data scientist Dr. Patrick Wolfe. “The trick here is to turn these massive data streams from a liability into a strength.” Okay, so we aren’t making the most of the data that we are creating. Big whoop. Actually, the extent to which we are missing extraordinarily valuable data analytic opportunities is incredible: right now, only 0.5% of our information is analyzed. That means that 199 out of every 200 pieces of data is dust in the wind, so it turns out that Kansas’s ballad is still relevant even if their hairdos aren’t.
