BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - EXO U, Inc. (TSX-V:EXO), unveils the next release of its award-winning, cross-OS application engine and user interface ("UI") at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (Hall 1, Booth G1.22). EXO's UI enables Bring Your Own Device ("BYOD") by providing the same snappy user experience on top of 5 different operating systems (OS's), with or without Internet connectivity.
As the number of operating systems and form factors proliferates, the challenge of managing these devices continues to escalate. Developers are forced to pick and choose which operating systems they will support. But with EXO U's latest software release EXO UI 3.0, IT administrators are able to easily develop, manage, and deploy applications to their workforces, dramatically improving productivity for development resources and staff while saving on infrastructure and connectivity costs.
EXO U enables the same user experience across different OS's, and allows developers to run the same apps on several different devices and form factors. From the device's hardware to on premise networking and infrastructure, EXO U integrates with existing systems in order to deliver a simple, intuitive UI that is easy to use, easy to manage, and easy to build on.
EXO U's platform stands apart in the following areas:
- Unified Experience across All Devices - from the developer to the end user, everyone can focus on a great user experience. A user experience at its simplest, consistent across any devices, enabling true BYOD.
- Snappy and Flawless - less than a second to start using an app, supports offline mode, and is not dependent on the quality of the connectivity. Delivers greater productivity to your workforce with tools that are so simple and intuitive, they rival their consumer counterparts.
- Collaborative - removes the barriers to collaboration with the EXO U framework. With its hybrid server and peer-to-peer model, EXO UI delivers a natural and consistent collaborative experience.
- Always On - EXO UI and apps run online and offline. Using local static data and data synchronization improves responsiveness, optimizes bandwidth usage and enables offline productivity. Ensures end users can continue to collaborate in peer-to-peer mode.
- Full control - The EXO UI is a sandboxed, protected area running on the device that creates a dual persona. IT administrators have full-control of the sandbox from the EXO U provided management console which allows them to administer security policies, provision apps and data, and manage users.
Private Beta Program Now Open
Today, EXO U opens its private beta program to allow key partners, customers, and developers to explore the possibilities of the EXO U solution within their computing environments.
The private beta gives developers and partners access to:
- The latest release of EXO U's snappy, award winning solution consisting of the EXO UI, Collaborative Workspace, and IT Management Console;
- Preview of exciting cross-OS applications; and
EXO U pushes the limits of any web model by solving the problem of fragmentation and software deployment, revealing a fast, efficient, productive and collaborative world while reducing the costs and risks related to the infrastructure.
- Snappy experience - working fast is addictive. It increases self-confidence and avoid millions of seconds lost waiting for a web pages or slow software
- Productivity is not lost when Internet connectivity is poor or down
- Mix of real-time and asynchronous collaboration allows users to concentrate on their tasks while sharing live moments
- Evolutionary with a development kit allowing fast, cross OS apps development with access to both client-side and server-side resources, with support of peer-to-peer protocols
- Sandboxed environment with secure communication between devices and with the servers, and full control of this environment, with no impact on the rest of the device
"The interface created by EXO U is what schools need: a solution that facilitates implementing BYOD, while allowing the teacher to focus on teaching" Thierry KARSENTI (@thierryUdM), MA, M.Ed., Ph.D. Canada Research Chair in Technologies in Education
The challenge is huge when teachers need to support a classroom running multiple operating systems. With the same UI running on top of any OS, a teacher can manage his/her classroom, push content and activities, and prevent students from socializing on the web during class time.
- Same interface, same apps on all the devices, ensures teachers won't have to become IT specialists
- Instant and easy sharing of digital content with an ability to select all of the students or individual students
- Classroom management which can prevent students from socializing online during class or exploring the web during an exam
- Keeps running when Internet is down
- Allow the teacher to access the technology available everywhere in his/her environment, from the student's devices to the whiteboard, and focus on his/her classroom.

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.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
