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 Kicks Off Directory of Contacts at the Biggest Advertising Spenders for Super Bowl 50

LeadFerret, the free B2B data site, announced today the release of their latest fully searchable directory, Contacts at the Biggest Advertising Spenders for Super Bowl 50.

Super bowl commercials and the dollars spent on them have become as much a spectacle as the Super Bowl itself for many Americans, including a few members of the LeadFerret staff. So, in honor of Super Bowl 50, which is projected to be the single largest global television event ever, we’re kicking off the weekend with a specialty directory of contacts in the companies behind these commercials. Everyone loves to talk about the commercials and the money spent on them, but what about the executives that make the decision to spend that money? What about the people who work at the companies whose products are represented in those commercials? The LeadFerret team decided to answer that question with our latest specialty directory.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/contacts-at-the-biggest-advertising-spenders-for-super-bowl-50

Sure it’s fun, but it’s more than that. If you’re looking for big spenders in the world television advertising, look no further. if your looking to contact executives in companies that mega adverting campaigns dediciated to building mega brands, look no further.

“The Superbowl has become the most watched event of the year with over 114 million viewers and growing every year. Its no wonder companies spend so much of their ad budget on anything related to the Superbowl. When the average women will sit and ‘watch’ a sporting event (for the commercials, of course) with a group of girls or significant others the advertisers are doing something right.”, says Stela Cassidy, Co-Founder of LeadFerret.

This directory was built based on the projected advertising spends listed at: http://www.ispot.tv/events/2016-super-bowl-commercials
