As part of a project for BPIFrance (French investment bank), Netvibes Dashboard Intelligence recently analyzed the top tech trends between Silicon Valley and France. A custom dashboard analyzed over 1 million news and high tech articles, as well as social media accounts of nearly 500 venture capitalists on both sides of the Atlantic. Just yesterday, Netvibes CEO Freddy Mini presented the findings at BPI Hub, a conference organized by BPIFrance Innovation.

If you missed the session, then join us for a free webinar next week, where Freddy will present the findings from our research. Explore what’s hot in tech in 2017 in French Tech and Silicon Valley, and see how Dashboard Intelligence can help you analyze trends online, identify key topics and understand what’s happening over time.

Webinar : Analyze Elon Musk’s “Master Plan”

Update: Watch the webinar video here: https://vimeo.com/207682225

In 2006 Elon Musk announced his first Master Plan, with steps intended to take Tesla from an early concept without any tangible products to the world’s hottest automotive manufacturer. Did he succeed?

Join us for a free webinar where we will use a Netvibes Dashboard to analyze the data and determine whether Elon Musk has fully achieved Tesla’s original Master Plan. We’ll start with the first bullet, “Create a low volume car, which would necessarily be expensive,” and evaluate available data to determine whether Mr. Musk has been successful in each of his objectives.

With the Netvibes dashboard collecting and analyzing data over the last year, we have been able to see and predict key trends. This webinar will introduce you to the key elements of gaining insights with Dashboard Intelligence, including:

  • Cross-analysis of web, social and financial data sets
  • Identifying key trends & insights and automating delivery
  • Understanding consumer purchasing decisions
  • Predictive analytics and historical comparisons

New from Netvibes: Improved Universal Search

We’re continually improving our dashboard features to help you get more done with Netvibes. Today we launched our newly improved Universal Search functionality for VIP and Premium users. Let’s explore what’s new.

With Universal Search, you can instantly find whatever you’re looking for by typing in simple keywords or drilling down by facets, including language, sentiment, geographical location and more. Beginning today, you can also use Universal Search to locate apps on the dashboard. To try it, simply search for a keyword, such as the app name or a word contained in the app. Netvibes’ Universal Search bar will auto-return results as you type. Results are automatically divided into categories to help you home in on your target, whether you’re looking for an app, an RSS feed, an article, or something else.

For example, when we search for the keyword “Weather,” Universal Search returns many results across different categories:
Article: “Winter weather slams the east coast”
App: Weather
Feed: The Weather Channel

If we want to see only feeds containing the keyword “weather,” we can type in that facet using Universal Search. For example, if we search for “Feed:weather”, the dashboard returns these results:

Happy 2017!

From the entire Netvibes team, we wish you a happy and magical new year!

voeux_en

In 2016, Netvibes introduced many new features to the dashboard, including: Shared Libraries to organize lists of sources, a Geolocation facet so you can map where news is happening, Trend-Tracing Triggers so you can automate actions based on data trends and predictive analytics, and more.

We are excited for what’s in store this year, and we’re sure you are too. We all tend to set lofty New Year’s Resolutions, and studies say about 25% of resolutions are abandoned by the end of the first week of the year. But with your Netvibes dashboard, you don’t have to be part of the statistic! Customize existing Netvibes Potions or create your own to monitor your success, keep track of progress, and increase motivation to stick with your 2017 goals.

To get you started, here are a few ideas for Potions to keep your New Year’s Resolutions:

Social Analytics’ text cloud improvements

The What and Where Analytics apps offer several ways to represent their results, one of which is “Text cloud”. Text cloud displays the main keywords mentioned in the results. The more occurrences of a keyword, the bigger it is displayed. This view is especially convenient to spot trending topics at a glance.

However, this view may also generate some noise or display keywords you are not interested in. For instance, an overall What analysis of the New York Times’ homepage feed may show the keywords “BBC” and “Reuters” even though NYT’s sources may not be relevant to you.

That’s where the new improvements come into play. You are now able to hide the irrelevant keywords. To do so, click on the keyword you want to hide and click on the “Hide” option and “Done”. The app will automatically refresh to effectively hide the keyword and display the next keyword in line.
