    Goshen, IN, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- TechKnowledgey Inc of Goshen, Indiana, is excited to announce that out of 6,000 worldwide Google Apps Authorized resellers, Google recently featured their company in a video and associated post on the Google Enterprise Blog. TechKnowledgey, Inc helps companies, large and small, transition from old-school business methods to more efficient, high-tech methods of the 21st century. Google sent a camera crew to the small town of Goshen, Indiana, to tell a story about how Google Partners like TechKnowledgey Inc work with customers to transform their businesses.

    TechKnowledgey Inc’s founder, Boyd Smith, says, “The introduction of cloud-based IT technology like Google Apps for Business has dramatically changed the way companies do business. All of the effort and expense once dedicated to keeping hardware and software running smoothly can now be used to grow a business in new ways.” Unfortunately, making the transition from the old-school methods of running a business to the newer, high-tech methods can be difficult.

    It’s this challenge that gave birth to TechKnowledgey Inc; they not only understand the traditional methods used to effectively run a business, they also understand today’s technological advances, and they know how to leverage those technologies to improve a company’s efficiency.

    The blog post and video tell the story of how TechKnowledgey Inc helped Monroe Restoration, a local disaster recovery company, do this. Not only did TechKnowledgey Inc help Monroe Restoration leverage the power of Google Apps for Business, they also helped the company develop a paperless purchase order system. The new system enabled Monroe Restoration to track purchases quickly and easily in real time. “We know exactly what we purchase when we purchase it. It has really reduced our overhead and has saved us money,” says Jeremy Davidson, President of Monroe Restoration. “Boyd genuinely cares. He’s here to help us become a better company so we can help others.”

    TechKnowledgey Inc became an Authorized Google Apps Reseller in 2010 and achieved Google’s highest Premier SMB Reseller status in 2013. There are only a handful of Google Apps Premier SMB Partners in the Midwest, and to the best of their knowledge TechKnowledgey Inc is one of two Google Apps Premier SMB Resellers in Indiana.

    While small- and medium-sized businesses are their strongest market, scalable cloud technology like Google Apps helps them serve customers ranging from solo entrepreneurs to billion-dollar credit unions.

    San Francisco, CA, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The idea of Elioplus begun to take shape a couple of years ago, when the founders of the project were browsing through thousands of products and services from established companies and innovative startups to add to their internet marketing agency portfolio. But the whole process was tedious and ineffective.

    The focus is to create a platform where you can discover great partnership opportunities at ease and efficiently. You can search between different industries to find the right programs that fit your company needs and read the respectively reviews and ratings from other users to help you collect more data for your decision.

    The long term vision is to develop a platform where users can compare different vendors and the diversity of their product features. On the other hand, to provide vendor companies with tools to grow their domestic channel or even open a new market. The company is planning to roll out new features that will help vendors to attract high quality partner leads and close the loop of missing opportunities.
    Finally, Elioplus is especially committed to helping startups grow their indirect channel. Because startups lack the experience and resources to create efficiently channel programs and promote their offerings, it is common that they constantly miss opportunities that are significant for their revenues and their viability. Elioplus plans to empower startups with the correct strategy and tools to recruit business partners from their respective industry and to penetrate into new markets.

    HOUSTON, TX, August 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This year marks the 40th anniversary of Skylab, and as the first crew changeover date of July 28th came to pass, it seemed fitting to look back and celebrate the success and legacy of the nation's original space station. Remembered for taking research to new heights and paving the way for future exploration into the solar system, Skylab hosted experiments with results that proved humans could adapt to microgravity and function effectively in that environment for months at a time.

    Skylab, launched in 1973 atop a Saturn V rocket, served as a precursor to what we do in space today. "When we started the Skylab Program we had to make a lot of guesses about the best way to operate in space," said International Space Station Program Scientist Julie Robinson, Ph.D. "Everything from how to plan the day, to how to have the crew exercise, to how to operate instruments on a human-occupied spacecraft. We owe so much to the pioneering crews, the operations teams on the ground and the scientists that paved the way. Skylab helped us define the problems for long-duration spaceflight, and now the International Space Station is solving them one by one."

    The Skylab Program led to new microgravity-based scientific and technological research and was an important stepping stone for the construction, operation and use of the current space station design. Special toilets, sleeping bags, exercise equipment and kitchen facilities were all designed to function in microgravity based on what we learned from Skylab.

    The nation's first space station served as the greatest solar and Earth observatory of its time, a microgravity lab, a medical lab and a home in the sky. Three Skylab crews completed more than 300 investigations to answer questions about our planet, the universe and living in space. The variety of research disciplines included human physiology, materials science, technology demonstration and even student experiments.

    As a result of Skylab's contributions, we now have a technological marvel circling the Earth at more than 17,000 miles per hour and roughly the size of a football field. The current International Space Station is a world-class laboratory that has been enabling scientific research in orbit for close to 13 years.

    One of the greatest scientific legacies of Skylab is the collection of astronomical observations returned from the Apollo Telescope Mount. This instrument rack kept Skylab's array of eight solar telescopes pointed at the sun during a period of extraordinarily high activity. Skylab's first commander, Charles "Pete" Conrad, said his command of Skylab meant more to him than his walk on the moon. He explained in a documentary that part of his reason for this viewpoint was being able to run the solar telescope and bring back an incredible amount of information that nobody had seen before. Today, spectrophotometers mounted on the outside of the International Space Station measure solar irradiance, the energy from the sun that reaches Earth. Solar irradiance information is significant to both Earth-based and space-borne communications systems as well as to our climate.

    In addition to filming the sun, Skylab returned more than 40,000 photographs of the Earth giving valuable data pertaining to geographical, forestry and oceanic industries, to name a few disciplines benefiting from the astronauts' orbital perspective. Building upon those images captured by Skylab's crews, there now are more than 1 million photographs taken from the International Space Station of our home planet with standard cameras and thousands more with specialized cameras such as the Hyperspectral Imager, with specific studies including mapping the characteristics of tropical rain forests; agricultural crops, forests, and rangeland areas; urban/developed areas; water resources; geologic features; maritime/littoral zones, wetlands and coral reefs; etc.

    Scientists now use more advanced technology, a growing foundation of knowledge and more time devoted to in-orbit studies to expand upon the important work started on Skylab. One key area of research traversing from Skylab to today's space station is the concern for body mass and bone density loss, due to the microgravity environment. Scientists now know from these studies that sufficient resistive exercise and proper nutrition can maintain bone density during long duration spaceflights.

    "Skylab took the first step of Americans living in space and doing useful science above the atmosphere at lengths not possible on the ground and for long duration periods," said Owen Garriot, science pilot on Skylab 3. As medical technologies have advanced on Earth, so has our ability to understand the changes that occur in astronauts during extended periods of time in space.

    Other medical breakthroughs like ultrasound training methods developed for use on the space station have been used by the American College of Surgeons to teach imaging techniques to technicians, doctors and hospitals. These techniques have applications for diagnosing injuries and illnesses in remote locations on Earth, disaster areas and war zones. Crew members have conducted Advanced Diagnostic Ultrasound in Microgravity exams on one another to determine the accuracy of ultrasound use to diagnose certain types of in-orbit injuries and illnesses, as well as to assess the feasibility of ultrasound for monitoring in-flight bone alterations.

    Experiments aboard Skylab proved materials processing concepts while continued and advanced investigations taking place aboard on the International Space Station, like the colloid studies, have led to lighter, stronger alloys, better medications and longer a shelf life for household products.

    Student proposed investigations aboard Skylab, such as web-spinning studies with spiders Arabella and Anita, were performed to compare arachnid behavioral capabilities in microgravity versus on Earth. The spiders proved successful over time, adapting to their environment. Today's students are bringing forth new innovative ideas and experiments expanding on these biology questions, for instance the YouTube Space Lab investigation to see how jumping spiders adapt to capturing prey in microgravity.

    Skylab's success can be attributed not only to the nine astronauts who made up the rotating crew, but also to the many ground-based teams who worked vigorously during the program. The Skylab Program provided knowledge key to the design and operation of our current orbiting laboratory. "The [International] Space Station was built around what we learned on Skylab," said astronaut Kevin Ford. "What they put up there for us, the way the modules were sized and the way they were constructed in space ... that all came out of what we learned from Skylab."

    The investigations performed aboard Skylab, much like the work performed on today's space station, will continue to help extend our reach farther into the solar system. "We may have done it first, but these guys are doing it better," added Gerald Carr, commander of Skylab 4, echoing Ford's comments. "People need to continue to do it better and better because we learn more and more as we do this. We just took the first step, and the rest of the steps...are being taken right now."

    Happy anniversary, Skylab. Thank you for the paving the way from your friends in the International Space Station Program.

    MCLEAN, VA, August 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Taking on the topic of "Big Data" in its latest blog, Corcentric, a leading provider of Accounts Payable automation and e-invoicing solutions, discusses the importance of the CFO and finance department when it comes to breaking down company silos and sharing a wide range of data. The blog starts with some startling facts: As of 2012, there were an estimated 2.8 zettabytes (or approximately 2.8 trillion gigabytes) of global data. That number is expected to increase by 2,000% by 2020. Yet, estimates indicate that only 3% of all available data has actually ever been used. The reality is, however, that used properly, all of this information allows CFOs and finance managers to make better, more strategic decisions.

    The blog makes the point that the first step in truly being able to get the benefits of big data, companies should be automating all the functions of the finance department, including AP and AR. By centralizing data processing, implementing an automated workflow, and instituting electronic P2P processing, these changes can increase a company's cash flow, improve supplier relationships, lower operating costs, adjust customer pricing based on real-time data, and more. One of the examples given cites a hypothetical situation where a product line experiences a downturn in sales, and then gives two different scenarios for that drop. In one, accessing competitor pricing shows that the price is too high and the company can then make a decision to lower the price. In the other scenario, the company, by accessing many sources of information, including social media, finds that the quality of the product has suddenly been deemed inferior by customers. That may require new sourcing or changes within the quality control division. In a purely AP example, the blog talks about missing out on discount capture due to late invoicing. By implementing e-invoicing and an AP automation workflow solution, the data accessed can quickly identify where the bottleneck occurs and the company can then rectify the situation.

    Corcentric uses the blog to answer those who are avoiding big data, responding to each of the concerns. The ultimate conclusion is that big data is here to stay and businesses that learn how to use the information to their advantage will succeed.

    The Corcentric blog is a knowledge center for accounts payable professionals to explore automation best practices along with the latest trends and news in financial process automation.

    Inwood, NY, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- CSU Industries, a leading IT support and advisory firm headquartered in New York, presented its firsthand experience with disaster preparedness and recovery at the Gartner Catalyst Conference, held July 29 - August 1, 2013 in San Diego. Matt Seif, VP of CSU, discussed “How CSU Industries Kept Users Productive in the Aftermath of Superstorm Sandy” at the industry’s premier event focused on the convergence of mobile, cloud, and big data in transforming IT and reshaping the way business is conducted.

    Due to a close working relationship with Microsoft, CSU has participated in the development of past, current, and future Windows Server and client operating system releases. This partnership led to CSU’s early adoption of Microsoft Server 2012 Hyper-V, a technology that was critical in keeping the company’s operations running at full capacity even in the midst of a natural and national disaster.

    In the session, Seif attributed CSU’s ability to ‘weather the storm’ to a combination of virtualization, staff dedication and excellent planning. CSU’s disaster recovery (DR) planning included a comprehensive business continuity plan; a hosted, redundant phone system; decentralized inventory; cross-training of responsibilities across departments; and a global distribution of staff. In addition, the company carried out extensive testing of its DR plans by conducting comprehensive failover drills.

    Seif, joined by Steve Rubin, President of WorkITSafe, then led an open discussion about the power of virtualization and the private cloud, and how the technology helped CSU ensure their clients experienced business as usual during the storm.

    Sacramento, CA, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Direct Marketing Partners (DMP), a 22-year provider of B2B lead generation services, specializing in the IT industry for Fortune 500 and SMB companies, announced that John Dandin has recently joined the company as VP of Business Development.

    Prior to joining DMP, he held executive sales and marketing positions with Sun Wireless, Sports Motion, Inc., InfoPlex Corporation and Apple subsidiary, FileMaker, Inc., among others.

    Dandin brings more than 20 years experience in B2B sales and marketing, specializing in the EDU market. He has consistently delivered growth in revenue for such companies as Mindscape, Mathpert, The Learning Company and Computer Curriculum Corporation (CCC). His program for CCC was a finalist in the National Telemarketing Awards.

    “In his new position, Dandin will help DMP private and public sector clients enter new markets as well as design programs to help them penetrate deeper into existing ones. The process of finding quality sales-ready leads for B2B companies is always evolving,” said Debra da Costa, President of DMP.

    “One of the most significant challenges our clients are experiencing in today’s climate is the need to qualify the abundance of inbound inquiries generated by marketing automation. Marketers have so many demand gen media in play: social media, email, direct mail, on- and off-line advertising, webinars, seminars, mobile marketing. Their prospects are looking for the right information at the right time. That's why human intervention is so critical – and why DMP places such a strong emphasis on integrating teleprospecting/telequalifying with marketing automation,” Dandin said.

    DMP helps clients that don’t yet have a marketing automation solution in place. “DMP can help design and implement a solution to ensure each opportunity is evaluated and moves through the marketing to sales funnel,” explained da Costa.

    Minneapolis, MN, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce (SPACC) and Brandography, a full-service Internet marketing and web company, have just revealed the new website created for Oak Meadows, a not-for-profit senior living community in Oakdale, MN.

    Oak Meadows, located online at www.oak-meadows.org, was the popular winner in the recent “Doggone Worst Website” contest, a digital makeover competition sponsored by the SPACC and Brandography. As the winner, the senior living provider received a $10,000 value design and marketing transformation by Brandography’s team of online marketing specialists.

    The SPACC co-hosted this competition in accordance with their greater mission to revitalize and support the Twin Cities business community. As the largest local chamber in Minnesota, the SPACC has a number of dynamic programs and networking opportunities for their 1,200+ members. Sponsoring the “Doggone Worst Website” contest allowed them to help the winner, a local non-profit, but also a larger audience of website owners through the blog series the SPACC is backing with Brandography. The blog, located at brandography.com/blog, has been using the Oak Meadows renovation to educate readers about ways to optimize their own web presence.

    The latest post in the blog series links to the brand-new www.oak-meadows.org. With a completely renovated design and organizational system, content designed for online search engine marketing, a responsive site for mobile access, custom photography, a digital video tour and more, the finished product is a site with increased readability, visibility, and performance. “I can't think of anything I don't like about our new website,” said Kim Prayfrock, the Director of Community Relations at Oak Meadows.

    As promised, the makeover took the Brandography team only 45 days. The blog series they are co-hosting with the SPACC is available at brandography.com/blog, and it will continue to update with helpful information to assist readers with online marketing, ecommerce, design, and more.

    For more information, contact SPACC YPro Committee Chairperson, Shelly Dailey, at shelly@brandography.com or 612-293-6767.

    Tampa, FL, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Tampa-based IDEAS4 just launched its new website featuring a portfolio of their work in websites, branding, advertising and print. It’s a big departure from its previous sites where they went into detail about each service. “Our site tracking was telling us that our visitors wanted to see our work, so we made the site simpler and feature our work much more prominently,” said Art Fyvolent the company’s founder.

    Located at http://www.ideas4.com, the site features more than 200 pieces of their work including 62 of their newest websites, 74 examples of their branding expertise and 75 advertising and print pieces.

    “There aren’t many, if any, web design companies in Florida that can do a site like this - and it shows off several of our four key points of difference - creativity, diversity, experience and excellence,” explains Fyvolent.

    “Next year, I will be celebrating my 20th year in website and Internet development and it was time to start showing off a little more,” said Fyvolent. Originally started in 1994 as Creative Solutions Interactive, the company went through various name and company changes as the web evolved. “Everything is reinventing itself every year, so our companies had to evolve as well,” said Fyvolent.

    Fyvolent and IDEAS4 have done work for some impressive companies, including Oracle, NCR, Lexmark, Transitions Optical, Florida Power and Jabil Circuit. Jabil’s first 40 page website was actually built by hand, page by page, by Fyvolent and his partner.

    Today, IDEAS4 has a proprietary, state of the art content management system (CMS) called Full Control, that makes creating and managing websites and updating content very easy. “The biggest difference,” says Fyvolent, “is that our CMS is built around the client’s brand with the design coming first and the CMS installed based on the client’s corporate needs. With open source CMS systems, like Joomla, Drupal and even Wordpress, you have to work within their framework or templates - it can limit your design possibilities and is harder for clients to update their own sites.”

    Their CMS takes about 15 minutes to learn and anyone in the company, from the CEO to the interns can run it. A far departure from the hand made sites 20 years ago.

    Portland, OR, August 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- DocsCorp, a global leader in document integration technology and productivity software for enterprise content management systems, announced today that it has reached agreement with Chicago-based Datalogics to license core Adobe technologies. Datalogics is Adobe's premier partner for licensing PDF toolkits to software developers.

    DocsCorp will utilize the Adobe PDF Library and Adobe Normalizer technologies in all its products - pdfDocs, compareDocs and contentCrawler. In particular pdfDocs 4, scheduled for release later this year, will see a complete rebuild to incorporate these technologies to provide DocsCorp clients with an expanded and even more powerful PDF editing and manipulation capability. The rebuild will also see a simpler and more intuitive user interface for increased end user productivity.

    Commenting on the announcement, DocsCorp President Dean Sappey, said "This agreement underscores Adobe's view of DocsCorp as a partner rather than as a competitor. Under the terms of the agreement, DocsCorp can now take full advantage of the same core PDF technology that Adobe uses in its Acrobat family of products." Sappey continues to note that not all PDF developers and software houses are able to license this technology.

    DocsCorp suite
    pdfDocs is a project-centric PDF management application that integrates with business systems to deliver higher levels of efficiency and productivity when assembling, editing and distributing business-critical documents in PDF and PDF/A.

    compareDocs is the world’s leading-edge technology for comparing and analysing the difference between two documents with incredible accuracy and reliability across all document types. In addition to Word-to-Word comparison, compareDocs can natively compare the difference between two PDF documents.

By offering innovative technologies that overcome the challenges of language and accessibility combined with professional services for ease of implementation, Across the Great Wall enables companies to reach the growing number of Chinese consumers and businesses that are eager to buy high quality goods and services from around the world.

    Baidu, not Google, is the search engine used by 87% of China's 500 million Internet users, but Baidu's advertising management system is completely in Chinese. Glogou Endu, one of the technologies in the Across the Great Wall suite, is the world's first English web interface for Baidu's advertising platform so any business is able to conduct search engine marketing on China's top search engine.

Glogou TWINS also integrates automatic and human translation services.

    Additionally, on average 17% of foreign business' websites are either completely or partially inaccessible in China at any given time. Glogou has developed WAVE (Web Accessibility and Visibility Evaluator), a cloud based software service that monitors website accessibility and also provides visibility into the interest level for a product in China's web presence and social media. Glogou WAVE delivers valuable insight on where a business can direct their China marketing effort.

    "There are many intimidating barriers for a business when they decide to market their products and services in China. However, China can be a very lucrative and important market for many businesses," said Iris Huang, co-founder of Glogou Inc. "Glogou understand all the pains and barriers to marketing in China. Glogou's turnkey China marketing solutions will ease the pains, break all the barriers, and enable a business to run a successful China marketing campaign and to get more customers from China."

    SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA and WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - August 7, 2013) - Paradyne, a Microsoft Online Services Partner of the Year finalist and leading Cloud Accelerate partner, and Exoprise, a provider of cloud based monitoring and enablement solutions for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, today announced a value-add, strategic partnership. The agreement brings Exoprise's complementary offerings for Microsoft Office 365 to the Australian market for the first time and accelerates the adoption of cloud office applications. The announcement follows the recent launch of Exoprise's new cloud monitoring solution for Microsoft Office 365.

    Office 365 is a subscription-based suite offering online access to the software and services built around the Microsoft Office platform. Unlike on-premise deployments, where IT teams can monitor performance via direct access to the servers running their Office applications, visibility to Office 365 performance is limited to the Microsoft Office 365 Service Status Dashboard. While this dashboard provides current status of Office 365 itself, it cannot provide real-time end-to-end performance data nor can it provide information on the health and availability of the various networks -- the customer's, the ISP's, the regional backbone, etc. connecting the users to the service.

    Exoprise CloudReady Monitor for Office 365 provides IT groups and service providers with end-to-end visibility into the availability and performance of their mission critical Office 365 applications, with real-time statistics, alerts and trend reports for the entire service delivery chain, from behind the customer firewall to the Microsoft datacenter and back. In addition, it leverages the power of crowd sourcing to pool performance data from all users, providing valuable baseline metrics to compare performance, quickly pinpoint problems and speed resolution.

    Paradyne specializes in the deployment and integration of Microsoft Cloud Products including Office 365, Exchange Online, Lync, SharePoint Online, Office Web Apps and more. It also helps businesses already using cloud technology to migrate or upgrade to Microsoft Cloud products from outdated cloud platforms.

    "Visibility and control are essential for enterprises looking to move their mission-critical applications to the cloud," said Loryan Strant, Microsoft Office 365 MVP and CEO at Paradyne. "By providing end to end performance visibility of their Office 365 services, Exoprise's CloudReady Monitor solution gives users the confidence they need to take full advantage of all the benefits of the cloud."

    Exoprise CloudReady Monitor for Office 365 leverages four core capabilities to deliver end-to-end visibility and control for IT groups and service providers:

    • Active Point of Access Monitoring - Using sensors placed at user access points, CloudReady Monitor actively tracks application availability and performance. By monitoring from the point of user access, rather than from an arbitrary location, Exoprise provides critical visibility into the actual service delivery chain for the user location and enables problems to be detected proactively, before user transactions fail.
    • Crowd Sourced Data Analytics - By aggregating data across all customers' sensors, CloudReady Monitor provides each customer with a global view of availability and performance metrics. This enables users to quickly determine the location (local, ISP, or SaaS provider) of any service impacting issues, while providing a rich dataset from which to determine whether their service delivery chain is optimally configured.
    • Simple Management as a Service Deployment - CloudReady Monitor is a pure, cloud-based application, with all the cost, simplicity, availability, and scale benefits of SaaS. This is unlike complex and expensive traditional ITSM and network monitoring solutions that are optimized for traditional on-premise software management, or current APM solutions that are optimized for application developers and hosters and often overkill for most SaaS customers.
    • Deep Exchange Environment Insight - Exoprise supports CloudReady Monitor with a comprehensive assessment tool that provides thorough analysis of the customer's Exchange environment. This can identify important usage patterns that enable solution partners and service providers to guide a customer in selecting the right mix of SaaS email, communication, and collaboration tools, along with data from which to structure a cloud migration plan. No other solution on the market today provides this level of insight.

    "We are very excited to partner with Paradyne and extend the availability of our cloud based monitoring solutions to the Australian market," said Warren Mead, vice president of channel and sales for Exoprise. "Paradyne is a Microsoft Born in the Cloud partner and has played a major role in driving the adoption of Office 365 in Australia."

    Exoprise will also provide Paradyne with high-impact sales, assessment and enablement tools to make the customer business case for the move to Office 365 and deliver value-added services such as migration planning and cloud audits.

    About Exoprise
    Exoprise is driving the adoption and retention of mission-critical, cloud based applications with its CloudReady monitoring and enablement solutions. CloudReady Monitor provides real-time performance visibility from behind the firewall to the cloud and back. This synthetic based monitoring also leverages crowd sourced data to pinpoint problems and ensure the best possible service performance. CloudReady Insight is a cloud-based assessment that helps customers build a business case to move to the cloud with a focus on cost, user readiness and migration planning. The Exoprise solutions help customers get to the cloud faster and keep them there longer. Visit Exoprise at www.exoprise.com on Twitter @exoprise; and on LinkedIn.
