Automatically Track the Value of Everything You Own with Trov - the Cloud for Your Things

Today Trov, the cloud for your things, officially launched its iPhone app in the US. Trov tracks the value of the things people own by automatically collecting relevant product data and organizing it in a personal Trov. Insights are then surfaced for users about their things, including changing market values, that help them make better decisions and take advantage of unique opportunities.

"The world's information is quickly becoming digitized and accessible via smartphones, but the information about the things people own has yet to find its digital home,” said Scott Walchek, founder and CEO of Trov. "We're aiming to reinvent the way people manage their things in a digital world so they can benefit more from it."

To date, the barrier to managing things digitally has been the laborious collection process. Trov is automating collection with its technology and by integrating with world-leading product databases and marketplaces. Trov wants to make the collection process ridiculously easy and automatic. For example:

  • Trov a vehicle: Scan a VIN and get the market value (and other details) of a vehicle from world-leading data provider, Black Book.
  • Trov a home: Use GPS location (or type address) to get current value and other data about homes from Zillow and Title365.
  • Trov anything from e-receipts, barcode, and photos
    • Connect an email inbox to a Trov to parse all past and future purchases from digital receipts.
    • Scan a product barcode and its details are automatically populated, including market value.
    • Snap a photo of something and Trov Auto-ID will identify it, assign a value, and organize it.

“At Trov we’re working hard to make the collection process not just easy, but nearly invisible. In these early days, collecting things may require some manual elements, but soon everything should be automatically in your Trov,” said Dr. Jim Gemmell, co-author of Your Life, Uploaded and CTO of Trov.

Each item in a Trov is assigned a market value and then rolled up in a central dashboard that tracks the total value of your things, replete with timely notifications when the things in a Trov change in value. With this type of information at users’ fingertips, new opportunities are surfaced, such as timely selling, more efficient insurance and better informed management of finances and possessions.

Trov is currently available for free on the iPhone in the US. Download Trov on the App Store or visit trov.com to be notified of the Android version, when it becomes available.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...

Organizations do not need a Big Data strategy; they need a business strategy that incorporates Big Data. Most organizations lack a road map for using Big Data to optimize key business processes, deliver a differentiated customer experience, or uncover new business opportunities. They do not understand what’s possible with respect to integrating Big Data into the business model.
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster.
