Design: feet on the ground, head in the cloud

The legend goes that, one day, we will release Design6, our online survey programming package. Check the night sky for a star indicating the Orient because D6 is scheduled for this winter. In the meantime, the D5 team is still very active. As we often do with other software, we first test and release functionalities for offline apps (in 5.4 and 5.5) to make them available later online (in D6). We have communicated already on the new Web Service routing and the changes to AskiaScript so JSON would…

GDPR: what we all need to keep in mind

Are you ready for GDPR?

What is General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)? GDPR is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of European citizens for transactions that occur within European member states. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

Why I joined Askia

It’s my first blog post for Askia and I thought a good initial piece would be to summarise the key reasons why I joined the team here.

So a chance to work alongside him has…

A fortunate chain of events – a dry read

A fortunate chain of events

At Askia we love to talk about Askia things… and about a year ago, the technical team got together in a room and agreed on what was our biggest need: the ability to elegantly call a web service from a survey and decipher the result and store it appropriately. Web-service not included I have mentioned in previous articles how an API allows you extend your para-data. With the IP-address that you collect (and that we encrypt – GDPR is watching you), you can obtain the general location of…

“Simplicity is complexity well done” by DemoSCOPE

Simplicity is complexity well done

The following is a transcription of an article published by Stefan Klug, Head of Production at DemoSCOPE. It explains DemoSCOPE’s innovative approach to programming complex surveys, using Askia software.  While many market research projects today are created using DIY Software, DemoSCOPE usually solves technically demanding survey tasks for its clients. Traditional market research programming has always been, and still is to some extent, to transfer a paper questionnaire into a CAWI, CATI or CAPI application – question by question, sequence by sequence and language by language. We have had several…
