Enables customers to choose reporting tools that best suit their needs

San Francisco, California – February 11, 2014 – Today Tickr introduced Tickr Open Reporting, which enables customers to use data from Tickr to generate reports from dozens of leading enterprise reporting tools including Tableau, Qlikview, Oracle, SAP, and more.

Today’s new capabilities enable customers to pull relevant information from Tickr-archived data into a custom report, using off-the-shelf reporting software. Tickr customers who already have reporting tools in place can leverage their existing investment. This new capability provides an open approach to reporting rather than locking customers into a proprietary reporting solution. It also allows customers to export their data into Excel, Powerpoint and Adobe PDF files.

Tickr Open Reporting is available now upon request, and it will be rolled out as a standard feature in the Tickr software platform in the second half of 2014.

“Enterprise requirements for reporting, even within a single department, can be unique and specialized. In a large enterprise the reporting needs are diverse, and there really is no way for a big company to shoehorn all their reporting requirements into a single reporting platform. Tickr open reporting offers our customers freedom of choice in deciding what to report on and how to present the information,” commented Tyler Peppel, CEO and founder of Tickr.

Tickr provides large organizations with a powerful, cloud-based business data visualization solution that leverages their existing IT investments and preferred platforms. Tickr gathers data from a wide range of business data sources, and visualizes it in an interactive browser-based UI. Data is collected from sources such as Thompson-Reuters, Facebook, Oracle, Salesforce.com, Twitter, SAS, CNN, Hootsuite, SAP, and more into a single user interface. The result—no more logging into dozens of independent information sources in order to get a clear and complete picture of your business.

“We believe that the future of enterprise software is openness and flexibility, both of which are key to enabling multi-vendor solutions. Monolithic, single-vendor, enterprise software will soon be a thing of the past. Tickr is capitalizing on this trend to grow its enterprise customer base,” said Tim Satterwhite, Vice-President, Sales at Tickr.

“We believe this is a first in our industry—no other business intelligence product enables customers to consolidate all types of business intelligence data, archive it, and then report on it, using the reporting tool of their choice,” added Satterwhite.

David Armano, in an excellent post on Responsive Marketing, argues that successful brands in the digital age must build responsive content marketing machines:

responsive content marketing model

Lets unpack those terms briefly here:

  • Responsive: A management philosophy emphasizing quick reactions to current circumstances and client feedback via multiple short development cycles and quick feedback loops.
  • Content Marketing:  In order to engage people today, brands need to create and curate content that invites people to be part of a meaningful story or resonates with an underlying narrative.  Successful brands don’t simply market their product, they tell good stories and invite others to join in.
  • Machine: Something that works automatically and cyclically (ideally improving with each cycle)

We at Tickr strongly recommend taking a look at David’s blog, then asking yourself these questions:

Do I have the tools and processes in place let emerging trends inform my marketing strategy and tactics?

Can I evaluate the performance on the content my team is producing and curating?

 

Today Tickr introduced the ability to integrate broadcast and streaming video with real-time business data from leading enterprise solutions.

“The addition of live video to the Tickr platform was a natural progression and where our customers wanted us to go,” said Tyler Peppel, Tickr’s CEO. “For brands and agencies that have an investment in television it is critical to understand its impact on business across the digital ecosystem — web traffic, sales, social media or other core business KPI’s — in real-time.”

With live video, Tickr has launched a new category of business information — enabling a true cross-media picture of how your brand is being discussed and the impact on your business.

“Tickr customers expect to understand what is happening across their business from both internal efforts and external events in real-time,” said Tim Satterwhite, Tickr’s Vice-President, Sales. “For many of our customers television is a major component of their marketing strategy and it has been difficult to correlate its impact on their business.”

Brands can track and correlate advertising, PR and competitive efforts and their impact on your digital ecosystem. This becomes a complement to audience measurement, providing a more complete, responsive picture of audience behavior in real time.

Banking and Finance can track business news mentions of public and private companies and enable correlations with financial market activity as well as online conversations about companies, financing, and M&A markets.

Live Events – Sports, politics, and live news can be analyzed as they happen alongside social media and business impact

Placing video in the context of your other key metrics enables you to maximize the business value of your media coverage and budget. Not understanding television impact creates a “blind spot” in your brand and reputation management. Video integration advances Tickr’s commitment to innovation, through improved access to, and understanding of, business data.

Broadcast sources include any cable or satellite TV network, including CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox Business, BBC World News, and ESPN. Streaming sources include YouTube, Hulu, Livestream, Vimeo, Yahoo Screen, and Daily Motion.

HYPERDATA-articleLarge“David Soloff is recruiting an army of “hyperdata” collectors.  The company he co-founded, Premise, created a smartphone application that is now used by 700 people in 25 developing countries. Using guidance from Mr. Soloff and his co-workers, these people, mostly college students and homemakers, photograph food and goods in public markets.

By analyzing the photos of prices and the placement of everyday items like piles of tomatoes and bottles of shampoo and matching that to other data, Premise is building a real-time inflation index to sell to companies and Wall Street traders, who are hungry for insightful data.”

Unknown“Social networking sites have become incredibly popular in recent years, with Facebook now ranking as the third most popular website in the U.S. With so many people spending so much time on Facebook, public relations professionals are using the site more and more to communicate to the public. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri School of Journalism have found that posting public relations information on Facebook during a time of crisis can improve the overall image of the organization that is experiencing the crisis.”

If you “like” this article on a site like Facebook, somebody who reads it is more likely to approve of it, even if the reporting and writing are not all that great.

“Hype can work,” said one of the researchers, Sinan K. Aral, a professor of information technology and marketing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “and feed on itself as well.”

If people tend to herd together on popular opinions, that could call into question the reliability of “wisdom of the crowd” ratings on Web sites like Yelp or Amazon and perhaps provide marketers with hints on how to bring positive attention to their products

Socialbots are tapping into an ever-expanding universe of social media. Last year, the number of Twitter accounts topped 500 million. Some researchers estimate that only 35 percent of the average Twitter user’s followers are real people. In fact, more than half of Internet traffic already comes from nonhuman sources like bots or other types of algorithms. Within two years, about 10 percent of the activity occurring on social online networks will be masquerading bots, according to technology researchers.
