Determine top industry influencers Find influencers particularly influential among influencers Track influencers to determine what they think are trends Gauge influencers’ social status Find which outlets and websites are most popular among influencers Klout isn’t good enough. © Copyright 2/24/2014 BMC Software, Inc 5
  • 7. What We Found Out: Key Players in Cloud Two influencers lead the Cloud conversation in media – writing many Cloud-relevant articles and also linked to by other influencers. The Top 50 media influencers are mostly all that matter, as total influence is concentrated to them (86.43% Total Influence). Two influencers are both high on the influencer list, as well as notably influential to other top influencers. Even though one particular influencer is ranked #17 on the list, we recommended engaging him whenever possible due to his reach within the IT trade channels. © Copyright 2/24/2014 BMC Software, Inc 6
  • 8. Top 50 Influencers • 26 influencers from news outlets • 24 influencers write primarily for blogs • The Cloud conversation is split between blog and news outlets • Many top blog and news outlets have more than one of the top 50 Cloud influencers writing for them – indicating the prevalence of the Cloud conversation throughout many tech sub-topics. • While both blog and news outlets cover trends within the major Cloud service providers, blogs provide more targeted information for those who are in the planning or running stages of Cloud development. © Copyright 2/24/2014 BMC Software, Inc Top Topics by Channel Blogs: cloud planning and management News: cloud acquisitions, trends 7

  • 10. Top 25 Influencers • • The first wedge represents the Meme’s top influencer • Bars represent channel scores • Petals represent overall scores • Channel scores are often higher than influencer scores • © Copyright 2/24/2014 BMC Software, Inc This visualization is read from midnight to midnight, clockwise If an influencer has good social presence but low overall relevance, their social channel scores may be greater than their overall influence 9
  • 11. Tiers of Influence • This graph represents all 262 of the Meme authors, divided into tiers of influence and ranked by Meme Score • The top two tiers contain the top 66 authors, and are the most influential authors on this topic • The long tail of this graph shows that few authors are both relevant and influential on this topic; the majority of authors who create content for this space are either creating little relevant content, or are sharing their content with a very small audience Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5 100 80 60 40 20 0 Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5 Reach Out To Follow Closely Keep an Eye On Distribution List Use as Bellwethers © Copyright 2/24/2014 BMC Software, Inc 10

  • 13. Analysis Thoughts Thought Leaders vs. Conversation Leaders: - Some individuals who may be regarded as thought leaders in this space do not rank well in our Meme. Why is this?   Thought leadership is not the same as digital influence. To be influential, an individual must be currently active within a conversation. Highlights from the Muse Analysis: - Among influencers, reputation and credibility of certain authors become evident. - Authors who can serve as megaphones for content on the topic also become evident. © Copyright 2/24/2014 BMC Software, Inc 12
