Picowork Helps Businesses Capitalize on Big Data, IOT, and Industry 4.0

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Deals, discussions and exchanges often take place in a coffee shop environment. The shop offers a convenient and comfortable place where the contents and interactions is kept to the people involved. 

Frank Cheung, Chairman of Picowork

We all want the freedom to collaborate and communicate in an environment that is convenient, safe and secure. 

Today, communication, collaboration and interactions take place on the cloud, and through different messaging applications or web platforms. However, the information and content is not exclusive to those involved; different applications and providers control the data, and own the "who, what, when, where, and how" content of every bits of information exchanged. With or without your approval, your information will be used for various other commercial purposes. 

As the reliance with web platforms and applications intensifies, so does the flow of information and resources on the internet. "The need to communicate and collaborate almost instantly over the Internet have opened up new challenges and concerns as information and content is in the hands of third-party hosts and providers," said Frank Cheung, Chairman and CEO of Picowork Limited. 

Individuals, for example, may receive targeted email and online advertisements after viewing a travel blog post on Facebook, or a friend request from a shuttle service on your instant messenger because Google Maps was used at the airport to check-in. For enterprises, this means that all sensitive information is owned and online interactions is monitored by the application providers. 

Cheung further noted that the current cloud architecture is fragmented as the vast majority of information and resources on the cloud are hosted with a small number of providers. Communication and collaboration online can only occur through the same external applications, which leaves control and complete authority to these providers. 

The key to breaking through this bottleneck is a structural system aimed at encouraging and enhancing collaboration in a agile, controllable, free and extendable environment.  

Picowork Limited, established in 2010, is a network-software company specializing in the research and development of online cloud services. The Company has recently launched Collaborative Cloud Computer (CCC) and Collaborative Cloud Operating System (CCOS) to address the ever growing transition demands onto the cloud. 

"We are one of the few companies in the world to offer an open and secure framework, which enables users to fully collaborate independently on the cloud. All communications, interactions and content take place in your own self-contained environment and space," Cheung explained. 

Picowork enables a collaborative environment designed to manage resources scattered across the Internet and assimilate available online services into a single, interoperable framework which will allow users to also freely utilize the available online tools and continue to use existing web applications with no integration required. 

Highlights of Picowork, CCC and CCOS: 

  1. The "Collaborative Cloud" system enables users to interact in a fully independent cloud environment. Any collaboration, communication and interactions can take place in the self-contained cloud space.  
  2. The Collaborative Cloud Computer (CCC) can be installed onto any data center; public or private. 
  3. CCC interoperable property across any existing PC and/or mobile devices makes it much more desirable given the difficult in coordinating collaborative activities and business interactions 
  4. CCC can assimilate existing online services and remove the need for standardization and concerns over compatibility issues. 
  5. Users can communicate ideas with audio or video calling, share data and files, work collaboratively on tasks as well as invite any internal, external and cross-cloud user to interact all under one cloud environment. 
  6. Web applications, content, and systems, such as ERP can be imported and developed through the SDKs of CCC and CCOS. 
  7. Aggregate data ownership and information is in the hands of the users and businesses to capitalize.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
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...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get.
