Independence Title Taps Zonability to Get Instant Access to In-Depth, Data-Driven Information about Real Estate

Independence Title, the largest privately-held title company in the state of Texas, is licensing Zonability to gain faster access to useful, data-driven insights about thousands of parcels of land in seven central Texas cities.

Zonability is a powerful, new web application that converts multiple sources of data into innovative, graphically rich reports and interactive maps for PCs and mobile devices.

By licensing the Zonability application, Independence Title staffers will be able to quickly uncover unique insights into real estate opportunities for their clients derived from zoning rules, public record data, FEMA status, and calculations to show estimates of maximum building size and height for a specific address or parcel of land. Clients will benefit by having greater transparency into important rules that control property potential.

With Zonability, Independence Title will be able to instantly access in-depth information about thousands of parcels of land in Austin, Pflugerville, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Round Rock, Bee Cave, and Lakeway. The company plans to add more Texas cities soon.

“Zonability is an amazing new technology product,” says Erik Wanson, Director of Customer Service for Independence Title. “We are always looking for cutting edge tools that solve problems for our customers. Frequently, we receive questions regarding potential uses for a property and potential locations for businesses. Now, Zonability instantly compiles and presents answers to these questions that previously would have required hours of manual research.”

“Title companies are known for research – especially uncovering potential restrictions that can impact a property. Independence Title recognized immediately that Zonability is game changing technology to address their customer’s needs. Zonability is the first online tool that presents this important information in an efficient, user-friendly way across multiple cities. Zonability uncovers hidden opportunities, keeps deals moving, and gets conversations started,” said Leigh Budlong, founder of Zonability.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
