3 Big data security analytics techniques

One of Britain's fledgling e-commerce sites, Jungle.com, claims it has generated more than £1 million in its first month of trading -- double its own bullish estimates. It's good news for Jungle.com's very own Tarzan, Steve Bennett. "We thought we'd turn over £500,000 in our first month but instead we've done more than £1 million," Bennett told The Register today. But the success of the operation so far has not impressed everyone. Some customers have reported that their orders have not been fulfilled. Others have claimed that Jungle.com's prices are no lower and in some cases higher than High Street stores. One customer, who asked not be named, has been waiting more than a week for his order despite paying an extra £4.90 for guaranteed next-day delivery. Bennett gave a pledge to look into the matter personally before adding that 95 per cent of his customers were "completely satisfied" with Jungle.com. ®
