Where is OpenStack used? Soon you'll be using it every time you send data over the AT&T or Verizon networks.
OpenStack started as an infrastructure-as-a-service cloud, but telecoms such as AT&T and Verizon are turning it into their service foundation.

The biggest hurdle to productivity is the fact that AR processes are often too complex—too many disparate financial systems, too little standardization and too many manual steps. Add in interruptions resulting from issues demanding quick resolution, and it’s no wonder that productivity suffers.
If automation can speed up business processes, just think of the benefits that accounts receivable automation can bring to your company.

You might think team success is primarily a matter of which people are on the team. In other words, if you could just come up with the right combination of people, any team would be successful. But +Google, which has hundreds of teams, examined all its team data in an attempt to answer this question, and found it was something else entirely.
Google examined the data on hundreds of its teams to find out what made them successful. The answer? Develop Team EI to make members feel safe.

Filter Your Survey Data for Added Insight
You can learn a lot from the survey data you collect – that’s the point! – but too often, people look only at the overall results. The real “Aha!” moments are in the details. One easy way to do that is with data filters.
You can learn a lot from the online survey data you collect. However, one option is to filter the report data and to do a deep dive into the overall responses from one community segment. Know how this can be done using filters in SoGoSurvey.

How To Say “Successful Survey Results” in 28 Languages

We live in a global society, and your company is ready to serve customers worldwide. So why limit your survey distribution to only people who speak your language? With automatic language translation, you can run a multilingual survey even if you personally only can say, “Thanks for responding!” in a single language. #survey   #i8n

Sites that prevent ad blockers lose readers
Locking people out of websites doesn’t seem to be working.
There are different ways to address ad blockers. Locking people out of websites doesn’t seem to be working, though.

Keeping Surveys Short – But Not TOO Short

When you design an online survey, there’s a temptation to ask respondents a lot of questions. After all, you surmise, this is your own opportunity to pick their brains! But people rarely are motivated to answer long surveys. How can you get all the data you need without chasing people away? #surveys   #research  via +SoGoSurvey

The U.S. spends a lot of money on intelligence activities, yet hackers still get into our computing infrastructure. It’s time to create the Federal Data Commission.

Excellent service pulling my few remaining teeth and digging out the buried remnants of several others. Could have been major pain, but Dr. Frenchman and staff made it almost a pleasant experience. And dentures... well-made, fit well, an excellent job. My only quibbles have to do with price, and I would have the same problem with almost any independent dentist. I'm a low-income senior citizen, and a lot of prices seem high to me, especially in the medical and dental fields. I could have spent less by going to one of the "chain" dental operations, but I think I would have had a lot of pain and lower-quality work. Price is not always a good indicator of quality, but in this case, maybe it was. My wife had some extensive dental work done a few years ago (elsewhere) for major $$$. Of course, she has a husband to pay for things, and I don't. Will I go back to Dr. Frenchman? Yes. Should you go to him or to his partner (and wife) Dr. Scala? Might as well. You'll get competent, friendly service, and that's more important than price, right?

My wife and I eat at this Applebee's about once a month. Our most common meal is the baby back ribs -- and a single order is plenty for both of us. We generally like to eat later than most local fooderies serve, so we especially appreciate Applebee's late hours (they close @ 2:30 a.m.) -- and we've learned that when we go there after 9 or 9:30 p.m. it's never crowded so service is better than in the middle of rush hour. Plus I get a free meal on Veterans Day. Great gourmet food? No, but decent American restaurant chow, which is what we go there for. And I think we will eat at Applebee's tonight. Why not? :)

We've been totally 100% happy with the Bug Guys. They come when called and knock 'em dead not only with "safe for people and pets" chemicals but with bad jokes. Seriously... they're the best exterminators we've found in Florida.
