The goal of this e-book is to explore and collaborate on the various details that emerge when you think of data analytics and social business. In particular, social data is Big Data. The challenges are similar but also more specific because of the nature of social identities.
The actual e-book version (an iBook for the Apple iPad) of this is available from: http://ow.ly/eC4E6
We need to expand our minds of how we convey thought leadership knowledge. That has already begun in the rise of social media interactions and relationships creating small format ways of quickly delivering nuggets of information. I am an active participant in that domain. Yet, I believe we still need the long-format of articles, blog posts, and even e-books. I am taking this opportunity to expand a short series into an e-book of its own focused around Analytics and Social Business Data.
The format and most importantly the content for the e-book will change over time, as I modify, expand or add chapters, findings, interesting resources and interviews over time.
If you have not seen my work before, perhaps a good start would be to look at my Forbes blog. As always, I am very open to discussions, conversations, commentary and criticism of my work, however it is delivered. You can reach me, regardless of if we are connected, through Twitter (@rawn), Facebook (Rawn Shah), or Google+ (+Rawn Shah).
