Mega Social Networkers

Sua empresa já pensou em conversar com esses 50 top usuários do LinkedIN?

Desde que as redes sociais surgiram há cerca de 10 anos atrás, observei o nascimento de uma nova espécie de indivíduos, mega social networkers, ou se preferirem, mega connectors. São pessoas apaixonadas por redes sociais, early-adopters em relação as ferramentas e super curiosas em aprender mais e mais sobre esse mundo fascinante.

Algumas são bastante ecléticas, estando presente em diversas redes e sempre com um elevado número de contatos. Outras escolheram desenvolver uma fortíssima presença, mas focadas em apenas 1-2 plataformas. Nesse sentido, destacamos o ator Ashton Kutcher, um ardoroso fã do Twitter, que recentemente desafiou e venceu a toda poderosa BBC ao alcançar a incrível marca de 1 milhão de seguidores antes que a gigante das comunicações o fizesse. Esse feito demonstra como indivíduos, ao fazer um uso eficiente de toda rede de comunicação existente no planeta, podem construir um canal de comunicação totalmente independente e com total domínio sobre seu conteúdo.

Pensando em termos corporativos, alguns membros do LinkedIN mantém uma lista dos TopLinked.com Top 50 List. O Presidente dos EUA, Sr. Barack Obama, ocupa a 36a. posição. Sou o 34o. nesse momento depois de já ter sido o no. 3.

Na medida em que amadureci o meu jogo em redes sociais, mudei o meu foco completamente. Não estou mais interessado em ser o Brasileiro mais bem posicionado no LinkedIN. Nesse sentido, vejo com grande simpatia o crescimento passivo mas diário do grupo da TEN no LinkedIN que me confere uma rede acumulada e estimada em 35.000+ contatos no mesmo. Acredito que esse grupo trará bons frutos para nossa própria rede social focada no mercado corporativo e complementar ao LinkedIN, TEN - Top Executives Net. Ela agora está com um design totalmente revitalizado.

Sua empresa já pensou em conversar com esses 50 top usuários do LinkedIN? Só para se ter uma idéia, eles trazem consigo uma população na ordem de 1 milhão 360 mil contatos. Vamos assumir que tenhamos 360 mil contatos duplicados e 1 milhão de contatos individuais. Considerando-se que todos os membros dessa lista são profissionais ligados ao mundo corporativo com maior ou menor grau de influência nas decisões e com uma renda per capita acima da média mundial, imagino que uma aproximação seria extremamente recomendável. Isso sem mencionar de que a grande maioria desses mega networkers também gerenciam grupos próprios que lhes confere uma capilaridade ainda maior. Se pensarmos no alcance dessas redes ate´o 3o. grau, o resultado é uma população de executivos globalizados de extremo valor.

Particularmente, já estou naturalmente conectado a grande maioria deles e posso facilmente acessar os demais com a simples menção de pertencer a tão seleto grupo. Como a questão de identificação é muito importante, acredito que uma parceria com, pelo menos, um mega networker no LinkedIN seria altamente recomendável para atrair mais e mais adesões em torno do seu negócio. Pense nessa idéia com carinho antes que seu pior competidor o faça.

Sucesso e bons negócios!

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
