Introducing Analytics


Let us jump right into the graph. What do you make out of it? 

The graph has been taken by using the google.com/trends.

lets see.
Four different words has been compared with each other on the bases of how many times they were searched in the google. 

Does these words(sony, hp, apple, dell) mean anything to you? Well its obvious that these are related with the four different big brand names. Well then, what can you infer from the graph? Straight away, you can say that the word sony has been searched more often then the the others, showing its relative popularity among the people. But watch out the result is related only to the United Kingdom region. May be in other region, its different.

But is that it? Is that the only thing we can infer from the graph. Well lets think over it. Can't it have any relation to the share market values? Does the two different types of trends have some relationships with each other. Is it possible to infer the trend in share values by looking at the trend in its popularity in google? 

Well, may be yes. May be it is possible to do so. Or may be and just may be its even possible to predict the future values too. 

Analytics is just the field that is trying to deals with these unquestionable questions. 

Look, Observe, Transpose and Deduce. But the steps are not so simple as it looks. There are many different and complex mathematical theories that can play into the process of deduction. Hence it turns out that Analytics is just the other field on its way to becoming engineered. 

Well next time, I will try to explore just what complexity may rise during the process of analysis. It a pure science of deduction. But when you get it just right then its what Sherlock Holmes would say, "Elementary , my dear Watson, elementary."



Comments

  1. I may not comment philosophically, but i can say from the graph that there is the periodicity in the data of the sony, this may be due to the new brand being launched yearly. please don't be angry if this comment is faltu

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it?

As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so.
It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise. Just…
