Innovation vs Out-of-the-Box

The term Innovation is often misunderstood. Without innovating, enterprises fail, waste your time and  money, and often take away livelihoods.

While fossil fuels are becoming a realistic energy source for private use, it is important to note how K Sridhar of Bloom Energy made a few tweaks to the ordinary approach one takes.

The use of color and hard "paper" (which is actually baked beach sand) made a really big difference if you remember the video in my previous post. Now, companies, no matter how huge, can power their facilities with Bloom Energy installations.

Clean energy is finally here, but what about foolproof data?

One thing's for sure: If your data business has to earn money that is enough to install a Bloom Energy power box, it better does some genuinely good business.

Innovative approaches are seldom effective, unless they are both, timely and targeted. It simply means that a new algorithm may hardly work as expected. It is the little tweaks that you make in the data algorithm after practical use and failure, that can take your innovation to a level of newsworthiness.

Algorithms for uplifting big data businesses are evolving fast. So fast and thick, that the demand for them seems to be creating a deluge of average stuff. While that is always the case in every open market, an alarmingly low number of effective solutions is what could awaken you. Awaken you enough to keep an eye for what really is innovation.

So the next time you are buying from a promising source, make sure it is at least an experienced one. Because someone who hasn't made a mistake, is probably just about to make one!

We made mistakes through the first decade (2003-07), losing value for data and what we procured thinking will stay good for a few years. Then we brought in regular updating, which still remains unmatched and unique, and supplemented by a manual component. The manual process is driven by a list of rules, which enable callers to maximize the number of verifications made in a day.

What followed was relational data-accuracy algorithms. Collating a number of techniques of data sorting and large-database solutions, we came up with innovations that allowed the simplest interfaces, providing search access to influential decision makers and people who are likely to purchase in the B2B arena. What's better? The information is real-time!

Some innovations can be easily perceived, sometimes mundane, but just impossible to implement. Big data is one such arena. However, Procure Data has proved to be a game changer by implementing verification, cleansing, overall management, and manual processes under one umbrella - so that you can get what it takes to find new and highly relevant clients

Is the Manufacturing Industry Disappearing?

A 2012 Huffington post for Canada read that the country witnessed 79 industrial plant shut-downs in 2011, which took away 14,000 jobs. At the pace which US manufacturing plants, with over 1000 workers, have been declining since 2011, it seems quite evident that the manufactured goods from countries like China are being purchased in large numbers and hence, the downfall of manufacturing companies. The role-play of technology has become more prominent in countries like USA and Canada, and so, even though, the output of human labor in manufacturing has been good, machines have replaced most of it. So, since, the labor cost is being minimized this way, most manufacturing plants are closing outright and work is being shifted overseas. Though over 12 million workers are still employed in manufacturing, importing manufactured goods from other countries is only going to worsen the situation. Laying the groundwork for a comeback In the background of American manufacturing companie
What Is Thought Leadership The Role of a CEO as a Thought Leader Thought leadership comes with the responsibility of processing a particular thought to making it achieve the goals that can improve the health of an enterprise. A though leader happens because the audiences, the industry and the markets recognize you as that. A proper planning and execution is required to get to the goal point estimated. How as a CEO would you want to see your company respond to new business contracts, share purchases, product purchases, technology based software purchases and legal procedures? Only you as a c-suite executive can decide on how you would guide and take guidance for some important decision-making. Thought leadership affects a company's image Be it a small company or a large enterprise, thought leadership can be elevated. This elevation can take place in a company catering to a small audience for mere promotions and then in its larger version using various contemporary plat

Hospitality Marketers and their Data

Coming to realize the concerns of a B2C marketer, data companies like us realize the complexity of tracking targets. Favorite cuisines, ambiance preferences, locations, and work and travel behavior... wooh! that's a lot of information when it is not a business concern, and individuals only. However, we are talking about something a little more penetrative, realizing that it could be controversial at the same time. Do you remember restaurants requesting your information at the end of a meal, and you just end up leaving your office name or address at the bottom of the review. That leaves the scope for a hospitality or restaurant marketer to find out information about your colleagues - at least the ones who share a similar taste in food. We embarked upon some brainstorming last week to figure out if the complexity could be lowered at some level in the process of data-driven marketing in the B2C sphere. While collecting information from prospects and customers, restaurant and ho
