Why email nurture campaigns rock. No, really. They do.

  • by Jeanne Kirby
  • February 09, 2018

For those of us in marketing, the rationale behind an email nurture campaign is very clear: once is not enough. We need repetition to build familiarity and trust with our audience, and to cut through the clutter. Building on our message through a series of communications gives us the time and space to create more of a connection with our target audience and reinforce desired perceptions of our products or services.

Short is best.

  • October 30, 2017

What's in it for me?

  • by Jeanne Kirby
  • September 27, 2017

As a vendor of marketing services, I’ve been lucky to work with some pretty amazing clients over the years – mostly in the technology world lately. One of the things I think vendors bring to the table is an outsider’s point of view. We’re often close enough to the business to know what the client’s needs are, but not so close that we’re overly caught up in the details.

How to transfer cached SQL Server names in SSMS between machines

  • by Michael Gombasy
  • September 05, 2017

SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) has a helpful feature that remembers that last 15 SQL server instances to which you’ve connected, displaying them in a dropdown list within the Connect to Server window. This eliminating the need to remember or track the often-times complex server names we use on a daily basis.

Combine that function with a couple of DAX formulas and parameters in the Query Editor window, and you get a reusable template you can use for almost all of your time intelligence needs.

An Introduction to Machine Learning

  • by Jeff Scherrer
  • June 10, 2017

Today, an engineer can easily write software to perform addition, subtraction, searching items in databases, and even complex algorithms. But tasks like recognizing the text on a street sign - something that is very easy for a human to do - is still very difficult for a computer to do.

The next revolution in computing - machine learning - is attacking this problem by giving software itself the capacity to solve these problems. Boosted by the power and scalability of modern hardware and the cloud, machine learning is turning the artificial intelligence theories of yesterday into reality and blurring the lines between the human brain and software.
