Product Release: Survey Analytics Version 5.6 Release

We've just released Version 5.6 of the Survey Analytics Platform on September 19, 2014. We wanted to tell you about a few of the most exciting updates in the latest release as well as what we've fixed based on reported issues in our last release.

Survey Analytics Core Features and Enhancements: 

New Discussion Feature

We are excited to annouce the latest discussion feature added in panel called QualStorm. QualStorm allows you to set up a live chat with a unique URL that can be shared directly with people to join by entering a valid email address. Then they are able to talk to other participants or moderators as well as view the whiteboard.

HotSpot Image Testing

HotSpot Image Testing is our newest interactive question type added in Survey Analytics Version 5.6. With HotSpot Image Testing, you are able to select multiple areas of an image for respondents to see, as well as add question text when they hover their mouse over that area. Then they are able to select whether they like or dislike that area by using the thumbs up and thumbs down sign. In the example below, we are showing a ski lift map to see which area of the mountain guests like best.

In this ski map example, respondents can click on which area of the mountain they like the most.
New Data Segmentation/ Filter Tool

We have also enhanced the data segmentation and filtering tool in Survey Analytics Version 5.5 to include some new question types. These question types include:
  • Date/time 
  • Open ended numeric input 
  • Open ended comments 
  • Rank order 
  • Side by side matrix

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.
