Editor’s note: This list first appeared on our site Analyst One. -bg
In March 2011 Businessweek quoted Cloudera’s Mike Olson describing a
“Cambrian explosion” of corporate analytical technology. Mike really
nailed it with that one. With the continuous development of advanced
infrastructure based around Apache Hadoop there has been an incredible amount
of innovation around enterprise “Big Data” technologies, including in the
analytical tool space.
This is great for analysts! But it poses some challenges. How do you know
which technologies deserve your time and energy? Which firms have something
so important that you should push hard to get them into your enterprise?
Those are questions we would like to help you address.
We have produced The Analyst One Top Technologies List to help you address
those questions. This is a short list of firms that can hel... (more)

Shrinking your Url’s is all the rage nowadays. If you are on Twitter,
then odds are you have used one. Despite CodingHorror’s distaste for them
in his recent blog post on Url Shorteners: Destroying the Web since 2002,
they are a fact of life when we live in a world of 140 character status
So what’s a URL shrinking service anyway? Well, to put it simply, you
supply them with a URL, they then supply you with a shorter URL containing a
lookup “key”. When future requests are made to this shorter URL,
connections are routed to that services website where they convert the short
URL to the original URL and issue a HTTP Redirect back to your browser to
send you off to the original long url website.
So, what’s a guy, or gal, to do if they want to set their status
programmatically on Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, or the other gazillion
social networking sites ... (more)

A content management system (CMS) is a system facilitating efficient
production of desired output by using managed content. The content may be
text, images, graphics, documents, sound, video or other that can be managed
in an electronic format. It is a software application used in uploading,
editing and managing content on a website. CMS has been gaining popularity as
it handles various tasks including when to display content, how many times to
display content to specific users and how the content interacts with other
elements of the website. Open source CMS systems are popular for their
quality, lower cost, reliability and flexibility.
This article is the first in a series that lists the advantages and
disadvantages of the 18 most popular open source Content Management Systems.
The first five are WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, and b2evolution.

Facebook's mystery announcement Tuesday turned out to be what it calls "Graph
Search," a beta social search engine to find things on Facebook like "Friends
of friends who are single men in San Francisco?" or "Friends of current
employees," a good place to start for recruiting.
It's supposed be a non-web search service geared to the people, photos,
places and interests listed on Facebook that doesn't compete with Google. But
it does and if Facebook successfully develops the widgetry, well, it could be
extended now couldn't it and threaten Google's ad business.
Even at this point it promises to replace some Internet searches with what is
essentially custom content. No sense searching for a restaurant or a club if
you can see where your friends have gone.
Shares of Google and Yelp, the online directory service, were both depressed
on the news.

A few years ago, a British newspaper speculated on what might be the Web
equivalent of the Seven Wonders of the World, and received suggestions that
were hardly surprising: Google search, the Amazon.com e-tail portal, the eBay
auction mechanism, etc. But that was back in 1991, before Facebook, Google
Earth, and YouTube had even seen the light of day. So what sites or
applications would be on today's list?
My own nominations would probably include The Wayback Machine - hosted by The
Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that's building a digital library of
Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form.
My list of Web Wonders would also, for sure, feature Wikipedia.
Now all I need to do is to figure out what other five to choose. Complete
lists of seven or individual sites/apps welcome...all suggestions welcome!
