Two Acquisitions Extend SQL Server

Customer Experience Matrix

I don't usually bother to post "breaking news" here, but I've recently seen two acquisitions by Microsoft that seem worth noting. On July 14, the company announced purchase of data quality software vendor Zoomix , and just today it announced purchase of data appliance vendor DATAllegro. Both deals seem to represent an attempt to make SQL Server a more complete solution--in terms of data preparation in the Zoomix case, and high-end scalability with DATAllegro. The whole point of the product was to use open source software (the Ingres database in this case) and commodity components.

Sybase IQ vs. Vertica: Comparisons are Misleading, But Fun

Customer Experience Matrix

I received the “Vertica Fast Lane” e-newsletter yesterday, which I am amused to note from its URL is generated by Eloqua. This is only amusing because I’m researching Eloqua for unrelated reasons these days. Still, if I can offer some advice to the Vertica Marketing Department, it’s best to hide that sort of thing.) The newsletter contained a link to a post on Vertica’s blog entitled “Debunking a Myth: Column-Stores vs. Indexes”. This is worth knowing, but doesn’t apply to Sybase IQ because IQ’s primary indexes are not B-trees. There's no alternative to live testing on actual tasks.

Haro and PR Spam

PR Meets Marketing

Help A Reporter Out. Help A Report Out (or Haro).com com  is a free version of Profnet. Started by Peter Shankman, this great service is growing greatly based on word of mouth. Frankly, if it’s free and a way to pitch stories to journalists, us PR folks are on it faster than flies on shit. So it saddened me when I saw this in a recent Haro newsletter:  . This morning, I got a pitch (as did MANY of my key journalists on HARO) about the rumor that Matthew Broderick cheated on Sarah Jessica Parker, and offering me a celebrity life coach to talk about it. This is MY list. Don’t like it?

Is There Hope For Google Placements?

KoMarketing Associates

As you know by now, Google has decided to merge its Placement Targeting (henceforth: Placements) into the normal campaign management taxonomy. Essentially this means where in the past you would have to set up a campaign specifically for Placements, now it will slide into your pre-existing Content campaigns. What Are The Benefits of This New Structure? Assuming you already separate Search and Content into their own respective campaign, Placement Campaigns would stick out like a sore thumb and require additional time and effort for data accumulation and comparison. Here only the bid talks.

Brand 101: Clearing Up the Misconceptions


There has been a growing interest in branding and differentiation among A/E firms in recent years. Yet brand remains an elusive concept, misunderstood by most in our industry, even among marketing professionals. Branding is predominantly thought of as a marketing activity, something that is assigned to the marketing department to do but is largely ignored by the rest of the company. But, in fact, the marketing department has limited control over your brand! What is brand? There are various definitions in the literature, one of the reasons for the confusion. So what does define your brand?

Using Google Knol as a B2B Marketing Tool


Yesterday, Google officially launched Knol , its Wikipedia-like tool for crafting encyclopedic expert articles. As with Wikipedia, subject matter experts can write or contribute edits to a Knol page on a specific topic. Unlike the case with Wikipedia, however, the author(s) is identified, so readers know who contributed to the article and understand any biases the author(s) may bring to the topic. For example, a technology vendor may write a very different page on a specific topic than what a user would write. So, why is this exciting for B2B marketers? It's Not Wikipedia.

Google and the Parable of the Turkey


In The Black Swan , Nassim Nicholas Taleb writes about the life of the turkey: for 100 days, the turkey is sheltered, fed and cared for by the farmer. The turkey grows to trust the farmer completely, even perhaps developing a fondness for the farmer (and of course the feed). Then, on the 101st day (with Thanksgiving quickly approaching), the relationship between the turkey and the farmer changes abruptly and permanently. Taleb's lesson for us from this: don't be a turkey. Also, remember that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Err, advertisers. Adore it. Benevolent.
