LeadFerret Creates Directory of Contacts at Companies using Laravel

Laravel was initially released in 2011 and is already considered one of the most popular open source PHP, MVC, frameworks.  While many frameworks like CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Drupal, Joomla!, WordPress, Zend, and Symphony have been around longer, Laravel has gained notoriety quickly because of it’s modular packaging system with a dedicated dependency manager, open and active development community, huge application library, and the fact that it plays well with databases.

Laravel is licensed under the MIT open source license and keeps code protected by bundling it an only keeping those files that are necessarily public. This prevents server misconfiguration from letting code leaked to third parties.

LeadFerret Builds Directory of NoSQL Experts

NoSQL databases where born and evolved as an answer to challenges posed by big data. Companies like Facebook and Google discovered NoSQL when they realized traditional relational could not handle the huge volumes of data they were processing. The drawbacks of the NoSQL systems include a lack of schema and data consistency, difficulty in testing and maintaining, and absence of a structured query language. Despite this, the upside when processing big data is significant enough that companies like Cisco, SAP, Adobe, Verizon, Metlife, Nokia, and many many others have adopted the technology.

According to db-engines.com, 7 of the top 10 database technologies are still relational, but MogoDB, Cassandra and Redis have cracked the top 10 and are gaining ground.

The professionals found in this directory have all reported and/or demonstrated knowledge of one or more NoSQL technologies, such as MongoDB, Cassandra, MarkLogic, Datastax, Couchbase, or Redis. Anyone looking for a NOSQL expert, might find this directory useful. Also, anyone with a product, service, or solution that is especially useful for NoSQL professionals, should find this directory to be an excellent source of prospects.

LeadFerret Unveils Directory of Contacts at Companies Using AngularJS

Often times when something is simple it’s popular to make it more complicated, and then when something get’s complicated, it’s popular to make it simple again. AngularJS is a perfect example of this. Front end web development was once so simple that anyone could pick up basic HTML and start creating web pages in a weekend, but they were also extremely limited in what they could do. Fast forward a couple decades and there are now a wide array of very powerful front end frameworks to choose from, but of course many of them are very complex. AngularJS has helped with the movement back towards the simply by being one of the only major front end frameworks that utilize plain old Javascript objects (POJOs) for the model layer. This makes integration with existing data sources extremely easy, and limits the size of framework along with the bootstrapping time. Less complex frameworks also result in faster loading pages.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/companies-using-angularjs

The folks running the AngularJS Twitter account sum it up pretty well in their description: “Bringing ‘simple’ back to the development of complex webapps.” They also say: “Angular is what HTML would have been if it had been designed for building web applications.”

Anyone who has a complementary or competitive solution, service, or product should find this directory very useful.

It’s estimated that around half a million websites use AngularJS, including industry leading companies found in this directory, such as:

Intel
Sprint
Ford Motor Company
Walgreens
H&R Block
The Gap
Toyota
.. and many more

LeadFerret Rolls Out Directory of Business-to-Business (B2B) Professionals

Regardless of their title or place of work, the professional found in this directory have all reported and/or demonstrated knowledge of Business-to-Business (B2B) ecosystem. In fact, they many work at companies that appear to be in the B2C space, while they work in some B2B facet of the business. This could involve B2B sales, B2B marketing, B2B consulting, or anything that involves businesses working with other businesses. For those not familiar with the difference between B2B and B2C (business to consumer): B2B is businesses interacting with other businesses, like a printing company printing up fliers for another local business, whereas B2C is businesses interacting with consumers directly, like when an individual buys a soda at a convenience store. B2C purchases can be large, like a car or house, and B2B transactions can be small, especially in e-commerce, but on average B2B transactions are significantly larger than B2C.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/business-to-business-professionals

Historically B2B transactions have been larger in part due to the fact that they tend to have longer sales cycles, fewer impulse buys, and thus businesses did not want to engage other businesses for smaller amounts of revenue if they know the sales cycle would be long. However, with the emergence of e-commerce in the B2B space over the last couple decades, the cost to acquire new B2B clients, and the length of the B2B sales cycle have gone down, thus allowing businesses to engage in B2B transaction that may have previously been prohibitively small, and this has in turn actually lead to a slight downward trend in the size of the average B2B deal.

If you’re looking for a B2B expert, this directory could be very useful for you. Also, if you have a product, service, or solution that is especially useful for B2B professionals, this directory could be an excellent source of prospects.

LeadFerret Rolls Out Directory of Contacts at Companies using Amazon Web Services

It’s hard to believe that a service that has only been around for 10
years can so thoroughly dominate a market. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is
celebrating it’s tenth birthday, and holds 27% of the Cloud
Infrastructure As Services (IaaS) market. They’ve done this in part by
making AWS so easy for even small companies to use. In fact, the
majority of the over 1 million AWS users spend less than $50K per year,
although they account for only 4 percent of $7.88 billion in revenue AWS
reported in 2015.

AWS is not just big, they are trusted by some of the largest companies
and government agencies. They are by far the largest provider of cloud
infrastructure and services to the federal government, including to the
Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon.
