On Thursday, 28th June, the Co-founder & Head of Business Development at JamiQ Private Limited, Kelvin Quee, will give a talk on social media, sharing his opinions on the fallacies and insights on Social Media Visualisations.
With the increasing popularity of social media, how should you make full use of it? Have you spent unnecessarily on social media? Are you listening and responding to what netizens are saying about you? How do you intelligently manage your reputation online? Gain an advantage over others – effective social media monitoring allows brand managers and decision makers to transform mere metrics into real insights that your business needs for immediate, strategic (and often cost-sensitive) decision-making.

There is a lot of buzz surrounding the area of social media monitoring (SMM). SMM has become mission critical with global crisis situations like BP Oil Spill, Toyota recalls, KFC Coupon crisis in China and the DBS ATM breakdown right here in Singapore. Web 2.0 platforms have provided consumers with opportunities to voice their concerns in real-time. In effect brands are being hijacked and managed by the consumers. SMM enables brand owners and agencies manage this phenomenon by listening and getting involved in the conversations appropriately.
This month for Web Wednesday, the speaker is Arvind Sethumadhavan, the CEO of JamiQ, a social media monitoring company. Arvind will showcase how companies can benefit from monitoring using intelligent real-time data visualization and share some examples of how brands can be hijacked on social media and show us how to leverage the social broadcast opportunity.

It’s that time of the year when we actually review what has gone past a turbulent year 2009 and probably a year after the financial crisis that rocked the world after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in Sep 2008. Of course, one of the key after effects is that fundraising for start-ups in the technology space become increasingly difficult this year. While we are beginning to see more and more acquisitions in the US tech space, the SG tech start-ups are still working towards a tough environment. In the technology entrepreneurship scene, significant incidents have shaped and brought forward new perspectives in Singapore. While we are about to start the new road ahead in 2010. Here are the top 5 tech entrepreneurship events that rocked SG in 2009 (in no order of preference): Read more
Yesterday, JamiQ has launched their automated social media monitoring solution to the market. While it is a competitive landscape, social media has yet to go mainstream given its lack of metrics to justify to media buyers and brand marketers. Yet, the market opens an opportunity for the team in JamiQ. We interview Benjamin Koe, one of the co-founders of JamiQ shared with us about the technology that is powering JamiQ, the challenges in a start-up environment and how their solution is distinct against their competitors.

Looks like the market of social media monitoring is about to be heated up (and we have already another two companies in Singapore which are doing this too), we hear that JamIQ just launched their platform in full, with the view that their service is not manual but automated for social media monitoring. Currently, looking at their features, they monitor blogs, forums, microblogs and comments with a multi-lingual interface, and offer trends, influence indicators & sentiment detection. It comes with a price at the start, and it’s likely that it targets small medium enterprises to large corporations. However, the service does not come free as the minimum pricing for the product to monitor 1 topic is $55 (not sure which currency). We congratulate the founders of JamiQ on their launch and more will come soon (for those who followed our twitter feeds). (Picture from JamiQ site): Read more
ThoughtBuzz is a feature rich and powerful 24/7 real time application for tracking public content on social media networks.

We caught up with both founders Anshul Jain and Ashok Patro and discussed about their product, what value does it generate for customers and not to mention how they plan to be different from their competitors.
