The findings come from a new quarterly paid search study released today in the Q1 2014 EMEA Search Advertising Trends infographic from Kenshoo (www.Kenshoo.com), the global leader in predictive media optimisation technology.

"The rise in CTRs in EMEA underlines the strength of paid search for marketers in the region.

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.
