If you work with BI, data, content, or analytics, please participate in a survey being run by Seth Grimes of Alta Plana Corporation, and check out the Sentiment Analysis Symposium, planned for November 9 in San Francisco.
The 2011 Text/Content Analytics Market Study asks current and prospective users -- business people and technologists -- about their perceptions and experiences with text/content analytics. The survey is anonymous (unless you volunteer contact information). Findings will be released in a free report. Please visit surveymonkey.com/s/Text11 to participate.
The Sentiment Analysis Symposium, November 9 in San Francisco, is a follow-on to very successful New York events held in the springs of 2010 & 2011. Sentiment analysis is about discovering business value in opinions, attitudes, and emotions in social media, news, and enterprise feedback. The event targets marketers & market researchers, social-media analysts, customer service/support, online commerce, media & publishing, and, new in San Francisco, Pacific Rim markets.
The Call for Speakers for the November symposium is open through June 28. Please check out the event - sentimentsymposium.com/ - whether you'd like to propose a talk or would consider attending.
