Samsung, Engadget and Yahoo! Named Top Talked-About Brands at CES 2014, According to New Gorkana Report

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gorkana Group today released the findings of its Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 Social Insight Report, noting the top influencers, most buzzed-about organizations, most popular media outlets, and key trends and talking points from this closely watched tech event. Samsung took top billing as the most-discussed organization. As the official show website, Engadget was also the top media outlet for CES conversations, and Engadget's Executive Editor, Marc Perton, was the top influencer for CES 2014. Rounding out the group as the top keynote speaker was Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer.

"One of the things this report shows is that not being there does ultimately impact a brand's place as part of the CES conversations," said Jeni Chapman, Managing Director, Gorkana Group US. "Apple, for example, dropped from being the second most-talked-about brand in 2013 to ranking #5 this year, and the same three-point drop happened to Microsoft. New entrants like Audi, which leaped into becoming part of the 10 most-talked-about brands during CES, demonstrated another trend we saw this year: the larger presence of new sectors like automobile and healthcare," she added.

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...

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.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.
