Netiquette IQ Technical Term of The Day - Data Mart


data mart
A data mart is a repository of data that is designed to serve a particular community of knowledge workers. 

The difference between a data warehouse and a data mart can be confusing because the two terms are sometimes used incorrectly as synonyms. A data warehouse is a central repository for all an organization's data. The goal of a data mart, however, is to meet the particular demands of a specific group of users within the organization, such as human resources or finance. For this reason, a data mart can be thought of as a subset of an organization's data warehouse. 

Because data marts are optimized to look at data in a unique way, the design process tends to start from an analysis of user needs. A data warehouse's design process, on the other hand, tends to start from an analysis of what data already exists and how it can be collected in such a way that it can be used later on. In general, a data warehouse tends to be a strategic but somewhat unfinished concept; a data mart tends to be tactical and aimed at meeting an immediate need.

Today, data virtualization software can be used to create virtual data marts, pulling data from disparate sources and combining it with other data as necessary to meet the needs of specific business users. A virtual data mart provides knowledge workers with access to the data they need while giving the organization's data management team a level of control over the organization's data throughout its lifecycle.

Netiquette And Color Effects on Communications Via Netiquette IQ

 Color in business as well as email can make a big difference in the message you deliver. Although it is usually best to avoid color or color fonts in email, they can also be used to attract attention or embellishments in a positive manner.

Regardless, it is interesting and useful to know the "tone" that colors can generate and to use this to convey enhanced Netiquette.

What Colour is Your Brand?
Posted on June 30, 2013 by Craig Pethebridge  brightowlmarketing.com
A guide to help you choose your colours wisely
Colour is the ultimate brand builder. It has such an impact on evoking emotions from your customers and instils long lasting feelings towards your brand. That’s why choosing the right colour, or a set of colours, is really important to positively represent your products or services in the best way possible.
Everyone has a favourite colour. So how do you choose the right colour for your brand? And which colours are going to have the most impact to help communicate your message in the most effective way?
Start with word associations
As a starting point, colours can be placed into 2 categories:
  • Natural Associations
  • Cultural Associations
For example, green is the perfect colour to associate with nature and freshness. On the other hand, it can be symbolic of good luck, money and jealousy, all of which have nothing to do with the environment. All these associations have come about from complex cultural, political, religious and historical associations, which can sometimes be completely contradictory with each other.
To point you in the right direction, the table below provides a general word/colour association guide and how it relates to popular brands:
How to select the perfect colour
Choosing the wrong colours can be disastrous to your brand, which is why I always ask the following questions as part of the design consultation process:
  • What colour represents your brand identity and personality?
  • What colour relates best to your key products or services?
  • Which colours do your competitors use?
Colours can be relevant to any industry
Some colours will always be suited to certain industries, but that shouldn’t stop you from choosing one that best suits your brand personality. This often stems from the business owner’s persona, especially when it applies to a small business brand. It’s also really important to send your customers the right visual message when they see it for the first time.
“Research reveals people make a subconscious judgment about a person, environment, or product within 90 seconds of initial viewing and that between 62% and 90% of that assessment is based on colour alone.”
Don’t just limit yourself to one colour
Almost every logo around the world uses more than one colour to represent their brand. Some global brands such as Ebay use multiple colours to represent variety, while most use two or three that compliment each other. The key is not to go overboard when selecting your colours. Think how your brand can be represented on a large billboard or on the side of a pen, and how easy it is for your printer to interpret and apply your brand’s colours different mediums.
Consider cultural differences
Many reactions to colour are often based on instinct such as feeling pleasure or disapproval, hot or cold; while others can be based on significant cultural factors. In western cultures for example, white means purity and peace, while in Japan it means mourning and death. This is why it’s important to provide the right impressions for markets you’re entering. Also, mixing appropriate amounts of different colours can help offset negative cultural connotations.
Don’t use your competitor’s colours
A brand’s ability to stand out from the crowd is a really important factor and key to long-term success. So if you’re competitor’s main colour is red, try going for blue instead. If they’re using brown, go for green.
If your competitor was first to market and you pick the same colour, then you’re brand will just be another carbon copy and will never get ahead of the game. Instead, you want to separate yourself from the competitor. You want to show that you’re different.
Add a bit of texture
You should always avoid being too safe or boring. Hence an effective brand design should incorporate complimentary colour arrangements of shades, tints and tones to entice your customers. Adding textures can alter colours too. A roughly textured surface makes a colour seem darker, while a smooth surface lightens the same colour.

Netiquette IQ Techical Blog - How The Internet is Connected



A Map of Every Device in the World That's Connected to the Internet
Alissa Walker from Gizmmmo.com

Where is the internet? This map might explain it better than any statistics could ever hope to: The red hot spots show where the most devices that can access the internet are located.

This map was made on August 2 by John Matherly, the founder of Shodan, a search engine for internet-connected devices. Matherly, who calls himself an internet cartographer, collected the data to put it together by sending ping requests to every IP address on the internet, and storing the positive responses. A ping is a network utility that sends an echo-request message (known as a packet) to an IP address—the internet's version of "hey, are you there?"

That part was relatively easy compared to the visualization process, says Matherly. "It took less than five hours to gather the data, and another 12 hours or so to generate the map image." For that, he used the matplotlib plotting library in the programing language Python.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
With its rainbow of connectedness, the map is similar to one produced last year anonymously—which was illegal—and also to this project by CAIDA (these links and the credit to CAIDA has been updated). Although Shodan is well-known for its potentially shady practices that prey upon insecure networks, ping requests—the same thing your internet provider uses to test speed and data loss—are completely benign, Matherly says. "We've just advanced enough in technology where we can do it on internet-scale."
Basically, Shodan is now able to send and receive the requests fast enough that the world can be queried in just a few hours. Armed with the new process, Matherly plans to track the changes in the globe's internet connectivity over time. With the proliferation of the Internet of Things, we're bound to see some of those black holes slowly colorize over the next few years.
