"We've built a reputation for launching and growing new websites like HelloBeatiful.com, TheUrbanDaily and BlackPlanet Radio, as well as enhancing content and increasing traffic for established ones through our work with brands like American Airlines' BlackAtlas.com," said Tom Newman, President, Interactive One. "Zona de Sabor extends our reach in the growing Latino community, allowing us to provide our content expertise and digital services to a broader urban audience."

"We're thrilled to have Boost Mobile and Lexus partner with us in launching Zona de Sabor.  Together we will build stronger relationships with the Latino community by providing best in class content," said Keith Bowen, Chief Revenue Officer of Interactive One. "Lexus recognizes the value of ensuring our readers can access our content anytime, which led them to partner with us to launch Zona de Sabor on the tablet with the goal of providing content for today's active and on the go consumers."

New Tablet Experience
The launch of Zona da Sabor on the tablet leveraging the Onswipe platform allows readers to engage with content through a touch enabled experience. Onswipe creates the functionality for a pixel perfect layout that is customized to both the branding and audience. Zona de Sabor readers will enjoy the same high quality editorial they access on the desktop, now on their tablet, plus a highly-engaging, full-page interstitial from Lexus, reminiscent of the print experience.

"Onswipe is reinventing the way the world experiences the web for touch," said Onswipe CEO Jason Baptiste. "Our platform makes it incredibly easy for a publisher like Zona de Sabor to provide an engaging, app-like experience in the mobile browser."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
