Three Containerization options for Android

No matter how organizations choose to deploy Android devices – Android for Work, Samsung KNOX or Secure Work Space (by BB) – BlackBerry and BES12 will be at the center of their secure mobility ecosystem.

Containerization option for BlackBerry

(Note: for BlackBerry 10 devices, we separate work and play content via a technology called BlackBerry Balance.)

Net Promoter score

Net Promoter Scores are calculated using the answer to a single question, using a 0-10 scale: How likely is it that you would recommend [brand] to a friend or colleague?  This is called the Net Promoter Score question or the recommend question. Respondents are grouped as follows:

  • Promoters (score 9-10) are loyal enthusiasts who will keep buying and refer others, fueling growth.
  • Passives (score 7-8) are satisfied but unenthusiastic customers who are vulnerable to competitive offerings.
  • Detractors (score 0-6) are unhappy customers who can damage your brand and impede growth through negative word-of-mouth.

Subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters yields the Net Promoter Score, which can range from a low of -100 (if every customer is a Detractor) to a high of 100 (if every customer is a Promoter).

An encyclopedia has to be these three things

  1. authoritative
  2. comprehensive
  3. up-to-date

Isnt it similar to Brewer’s theorem for NoSQL systems? Can all three be true at the same time?

Why Europe has not produced online tech giants

http://www.businessinsider.com/ap-why-europe-isnt-creating-any-googles-or-facebooks-2015-9

As technology upends industries and lifestyles at breakneck pace, the Old Continent is not producing any of the online giants like Google, eBay or Facebook.

Europe’s relatively cautious attitude to investment stands out as one of the biggest hurdles — and among the most difficult to change.

Investors in Europe want to see that a young company can generate revenue from the start. Europe’s many high-technology companies are focused on manufactured goods that can be sold right away to generate revenue — industrial equipment, energy turbines, high-speed trains, medical devices, and nuclear energy.

By contrast, Internet companies often have little to no revenue at the beginning. Twitter and Facebook, for example, first focused on building up their user numbers. Only once they were established as global forces did they put more attention to making money, through advertising and other strategies.

Quote on “Change”

  1. The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
  2. When the rate of change on the outside is greater than the rate of change on the inside, the end is near – Jack Welch.
