    Data Driven Marketing: An Analytic Doorway to Success

    There was a time when marketing firms had to treat everyone like generic off-brand mac & cheese. Sure, they could make certain assumptions based upon average consumers, but real, personalized customer offers and promotions just weren't possible. That time, however, has passed. These days, brands are able to gather data about individual customers from before any sort of interaction even begins to take place. Through information sources such as web browsers, social media, surveys, customer reward programs, transaction data, etc., it is possible to gather massive amounts of data regarding the personal preferences of millions of potential customers.

    Technologies like Apache Hadoop are enabling companies to more effectively manage and utilize this data to market to their target audiences.This, combined with basic demographic data, provides a wealth of information that can be used to reach and influence potential purchasers and clients. But despite these amazing new inroads, few companies are taking proper advantage of analytics to increase their business prospects. This may be because many marketers have trouble distilling actual, usable information from the maelstrom of raw numbers that are gathered during analysis. Four steps that can help are as follows.

  • Denial of Service on an Apache server

    Last week was a very frustrating time for me. For whatever reason, an unusually number of botnets decided to zero in on my Drupal site and created what I call an unintentional  Denial of Service attack (DOS). The attack was actually from spambots looking looking for script vulnerabilities found mainly in older versions of e107 and WordPress. Since the target of these spambots were non-Drupal pages, my Drupal site responded by delivering an unusually large number of "page not found" and "access denied" error pages. Eventually, these requests from a multitude of IPs were too many for my server to handle and for all intents and purposes the botnet attack caused a distributed denial of service that prevented me and my users from accessing the site.

    These type of attacks on Drupal sites and numerous other content management systems are nothing new. However, my search at as well as Google didn't really find a solution that completely addressed my problem. Trying to prevent a DDoS attack isn't easy to begin with and at first the answers alluded me.
