Zomato, South Asia's Largest Restaurant and Nightlife Guide, Enters the European Market with London

LONDON, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Zomato, South Asia's largest restaurant and night-life guide has made its way to London, launching its London section both on the web (http://zomato.com/london) and mobile (for iOS and Android for now). Headquartered in New Delhi, Zomato entered the Middle East market in 2012 with the launch of its Dubai section in September 2012 and has quickly expanded to Abu Dhabi and Sharjah in the UAE, and Colombo in Sri Lanka and now Doha in Qatar. Continuing its aggressive international expansion, Zomato has now entered Europe with London as its first market.

Zomato.com provides in-depth information on over 16,000 restaurants in the Greater London area, making it the most extensive restaurant discovery platform in London for anyone looking to dine out, get food delivered or order take-away. Zomato's strength is the information it provides on the restaurants - such as scanned menus, photos, mapped coordinates, and transit access. A new feature on the website, Dish Search, will also lets users in London find restaurants serving their favorite dish from over 800,000 unique dishes served by the restaurants on Zomato London. On mobile, Zomato's location aware applications suggest the best restaurants around the user location. All of Zomato's features - menus, photos, mapped coordinates, ratings and reviews are available and fully supported on the mobile apps.

Zomato is now over four years old and gets over 10 million users every month who use the platform to discover the best places to eat around them. Deepinder Goyal and Pankaj Chaddah founded Zomato in July 2008 for restaurants in New Delhi. Since then, Zomato has expanded its services to 19 cities in India, United Kingdom, UAE, Qatar and Sri Lanka covering over 73,000 restaurants. Zomato plans to further expand its reach into continental Europe, Middle East, South America and South East Asia in 2013.

Deepinder Goyal, Founder and CEO of Zomato, said, "London is a very mature market due to high Internet and smartphone penetration among users accessing local information. When it comes to local coverage of restaurants, we feel that there is a huge need for Zomato's rich and comprehensive restaurant information. Our goal is to provide users in London with accurate and in-depth information about the restaurants around them before they make their decisions on where or what to eat. We are very excited to bring our product here and are expecting a great response from the bustling city of London! In our opinion, a better product always wins, and it will be interesting to see how we fare against established players like Yelp and Qype in London."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
