Feature Enhancement: Text Analytics

We are pleased to announce the launch of our latest analytics module - Text Analysis/Tagging.
Text Analytics:

We've spent some time researching different options on analyzing open-ended text data within surveys. We've looked at integrating with other third-party vendors to do automatic "sentiment analysis" to a simple "tag cloud" - and after some user testing and research we've decided to a simple but effective tagging and categorization model. Here is how it works:

  • View all the comments (20 at a time)

  • Create dynamic "Tags" to represent sentiment

  • Quickly categorize your open-ended text - with minimal screen refreshes

  • Pie Charts to visualize the data.

With the Survey Analytics Enterprise Platform you can analyze text data. For this you can set up Text Categories. Go to:

* Login » Surveys » Analytics » Analytics Tabs » Text Analysis

Text Category can be set up on an Open Ended Text - Comments Box type question.

* Click on the Add New link for adding a new category.

* Enter in the name for the category.

* For the Text Response click on the Category Name to assign the category.
* Repeat the steps for each response

Once you have categorized all responses under the appropriate categories, you can view pie-chart reports for the categorized data.


  1. OH THANK YOU - thank you - thank you! I do surveys where respondents seem to think it's fun to write 200 word open ended responses :-)

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Internet of Things

In 2008, the number of things connected to the internet exceeded the number of people on Earth. By 2050, we are expected to surpass 50 million different devices connected to the internet. And we're not just talking smartphones and tablets - we mean everything. Wearable tech, household appliances, smart homes, public transportation, hospitals and even cattle have all been using sensors to transmit data automatically. It is an exciting yet scary time to be alive. The various interactions between these different entities are opening up doors for more apps, more software and more auxiliary services. With so many "things" connected online, the possibilities for information exchange becoming wider everyday. Check out the top 5 infographics to learn more about the IoT.
