|20150254685||METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR COMPILING MARKETING INFORMATION FOR A CLIENT - Methods are provided for exploiting the secondary traffic generated by social networking sites. Traffic on a commercial website is constantly monitored by a web analytics tool that collects traffic measurements of hits, button presses, enquiries, purchases etc., as well as the referrer URL of a site, such as a social networking site, through which the commercial website is accessed. The collected measurements are forwarded to a referred traffic analysis system. Concurrently, the referred traffic analysis system crawls the Internet and collects a large number of social networking sites, analyses their content by extracting insight terms and phrases from them. The collected traffic measurements are correlated with the collected insights from the social networking sites, and the top insights that reoccur frequently enough to appear to be a driver for the measurements observed, are presented to the client. A corresponding system is also provided.||09-10-2015|
|20150254286||TRUNCATING DATA ASSOCIATED WITH OBJECTS IN A MULTI-TENANT DATABASE - An exemplary embodiment of a multi-tenant database system is provided. The system includes a multi-tenant database, an entity definition table, and a data processing engine. The database has database objects for multiple tenants, including an existing object for a designated tenant. Each entry in the existing object has a respective entity identifier. The definition table has metadata entries for the database objects, including a metadata entry for the existing object. This metadata entry has a tenant identifier for the designated tenant, an entity name for the existing object, and an old key prefix for the existing object. Each entity identifier of the existing object begins with the old key prefix. The engine performs a data truncation operation on the existing object by updating the metadata entry to replace the old key prefix with a new key prefix. This results in an updated object that is identified by the new key prefix and the tenant identifier.||09-10-2015|
