Take Our Reader Survey & Bring in a New Day

Lyricists love to write about new days, learning from what's been, and starting fresh. Michael Buble, Patti LaBelle, Alicia Keys, Will.i.am... and the list goes on.

It's a great sentiment, especially heading into a shiny-white 365 of them. And so here at AllAnalytics.com we'll be capitalizing on the idea.

January will begin our second full year of delivering you insight an all-things analytical (for those of you who haven't been with us from the start, we launched in June 2011). As the month unfolds, watch out for a new look and new capabilities as we look to serve you, our valued community, better. I won't reveal too much here, but you can expect in-depth looks at the people, trends, and technologies shaping the analytical world; online learning opportunities; and even a regular dose of humor.

But we have a favor to ask: Please help us refine the new us for the new days of 2013 by participating in our first reader survey. Available here, the survey will take just a few moments of your time but will provide us invaluable insight on how we can better serve your needs. What do you like about the site? What don't you like? Are we hitting your sweet spots? If not, what are we missing?

It's only natural, after all, that we turn to a traditional means of gathering insight, the survey. More than anything, AllAnalytics.com is about establishing thought leadership and generating conversation among analytics, business, and IT professionals who live and breathe data. So let us turn your personal views on this site into data we can use to better serve you!

As Michael Buble croons:

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
It's a new life
For All Analytics!

Well... clearly, I made up that last bit, but in keeping with the spirit of rejuvenation I don't think he'd mind.

Again, you can find the All Analytics Reader Survey here. Thanks in advance for your participation: Your opinion matters.

It's always a good idea to time a survey before promising a short reply time!

Well, I dunno how much of a New Day it will help bring in, but I took the survey.  I guess there's always room for improvement of anything, but I couldn't think of much to suggest.  I do hope that any changes will be made for real improvements and not for the sake of change.

You guys forgot to let us know how long it might take to complete the survey.


Yes. Beth's assurance that "the survey will take just a few moments..." reminds me of the "few moments" the flight attendants assure us it will take before landing, when you know the plane is still 15-20 min. away from the airport.

You guys forgot to let us know how long it might take to complete the survey. It's a bit longer than it first appeared after page one. :)
