Ksenia Polyakova Packaging design as a Marketing tool and Desire to purchase, 72 pages, 2 appendices Saimaa University of Applied Science Faculty of Business Administration, Lappeenranta Degree Programme in International Business Bachelor’s Thesis 2013 Instructor: Mr. Riku Hytönen Senior Lecturer, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences The purpose of the study was to examine the consumer perception on different design elements of a milk package and to provide essential information for the companies about the consumer attraction and importance of design attributes from the consumer point of view. The theoretical framework was based on the secondary data (articles and books) and included core concepts of packaging, packaging design, consumer behavior, consumer perception, and consumer attraction. The mixed method was selected for acquiring and analyzing the research results. Quantitative data was collected from 30 questionnaire responses and was analyzed with the computer program Excel. Qualitative data was obtained from two interviews conducted with the companies, Valio Ltd and Tetra Pak Ltd. The results of the study revealed the importance of packaging design in consumer buying behavior. By examining the consumer perception, it was found out that packaging design elements such as graphics, color, and product information play a key role in decision making and ensure consumer’s attention. Based on the findings, it was defined that successful milk packaging design could be created by the cooperation between the consumer and the company. Further research could investigate other product packages’ design elements.

An Introduction to Stretchr: The intelligent Datastack impact to nosql ...

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL: FRONT PORCH DIGITAL’S RAPID APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT Front Porch Digital, Inc. is a world leader in digital asset workflow management serving global leaders in the entertainment industry. Front Porch Digital recently integrated Stretchr into its application development processes. “Stretchr has fundamentally changed the way we approach data systems development. Today’s data comes in so many shapes and sizes and is always changing, requiring you to spend a huge amount of time designing and editing schemas in traditional databases or developing expertise in NoSQL technology. With Stretchr all of that time and complexity goes away. You simply acquire the data, from any source and in any form. Stretchr then organizes the data for you based on how your users consume it – it couldn’t be simpler. Our first integration with Stretchr took an afternoon, and was effectively the insertion of one line of code into our existing application. So happy are we with the way Stretchr works and performs that we are tightly integrating our newest products with Stretchr, cutting development times significantly”.

History Repeats Itself - EDBT
by prolato 0 Comments favorite 4 Viewed Download 0 Times

In this paper, I describe some of the recent developments in the database management area, in particular the NoSQL phenomenon and the hoopla associated with it. The goal of the paper is not to do an exhaustive survey of NoSQL systems. The aim is to do a broad brush analysis of what these developments mean - the good and the bad aspects! Based on my more than three decades of database systems work in the research and product arenas, I will outline what are many of the pitfalls to avoid since there is currently a mad rush to develop and adopt a plethora of NoSQL systems in a segment of the IT population, including the research community. In rushing to develop these systems to overcome some of the shortcomings of the relational systems, many good principles of the latter, which go beyond the relational model and the SQL language, have been left by the wayside. Now many of the features that were initially discarded as unnecessary in the NoSQL systems are being brought in, but unfortunately in ad hoc ways. Hopefully, the lessons learnt over three decades with relational and other systems would not go to waste and we wouldn’t let history repeat itself with respect to simple minded approaches leading to enormous pain later on for developers as well as users of the NoSQL systems! Caveat: What I express in this paper are my personal opinions and they do not necessarily reflect the opinions of my employer.

Solving Data Integration Challenges with SQL and NoSQL - FOSE

Many organizations today would seemingly be content with having achieved an information architecture that features a broad-scope enterprise resource management environment feeding data in batch for reporting and analytics to a robust data warehouse environment. As a bonus, the data warehouses in this post-operational environment may consist of solid-state components and automated archival abilities. Irreversibly, the environment also has been inundated with data marts fed from original source and from the data warehouse itself. There is frequently a multidimensional database in the mix. Or a hundred. If there is any contentment with such an architecture, it will be short-lived. With information the “new gold” for companies, each shop must do everything it can to nurture, protect, make available and otherwise exploit the information asset. This will frequently mean venturing into new technology domains for the management of the asset. One may be tempted to consider the NoSQL movement as the epitome of these new technology domains. However, many possibilities have been laid on the table by the vendor community in the years prior to NoSQL. Most have merit in an enterprise today. We clearly need to get away from the winner-take-all mentality where every workload – sometimes whether it is analytical or operational – will be solved the same way as the last one. Frequently, that way was with a data integration operation with the data warehouse followed by the deployment of more reports in the business intelligence tool. Force-fitting a workload into a technology that it was not designed for creates more problems than it solves.
