Best Practices in Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing [July/August 2015]

 

Grasping For The Cloud

The cloud is gathering. There have been several baby steps leading up to now. ASPs (application service providers) opened the door to off-site, provided service that allowed organizations to off-board certain IT functions to a data center somewhere off site. Typically, the organization owned the licenses for the applications; the data center simply stored and maintained them and provided a grade-of-service that was usually negotiated in advance . . . .

Top Three Differences between Enterprise and Consumer Clouds

The cloud has been a boon to people and businesses that enjoy its convenience, agility and flexibility. But increasingly, corporate users are choosing the cloud applications they use without involving IT, and often without understanding the issues that can result when critical corporate information is shared through consumer cloud applications. . . .

How Users Search and Discover: User Scenarios

How Users Search and Discover: User Scenarios

By Christine Stohn, Senior Product Manager, Discovery & Delivery, Ex Libris

http://initiatives.exlibrisgroup.com/2015/06/how-users-search-and-discover-user.html

Last time, you will recall, I described how Ex Libris user studies were designed to provide a better understanding of users’ discovery needs, by placing their search scenarios in their real-world context.  During the collection and analysis of a wide range of user case studies, three core discovery concepts repeatedly appeared in our user scenarios:

  • Search and find
  • Exploration
  • Learning
  • Personalization

In this post, I’m looking at these concepts in the context of two different scenarios that I see as fairly representative of various classes of users.”
