AJAX-Based Web 2.0 Business App To Be Launched by FinSock

Aimed at Allowing Business Owners and Employees To "Break the Confinement of the Conventional Office"

FinSock has announced that it will release worldwide a web-based small business software solution in June. The so-called "Web 2.0" application will allow business owners and their employees the ability to break the confinement of the conventional office. It has had the benefit of two years of development and successful client reviews.

"With the web-based application model being considered the next evolution in business software solutions, we feel the timing of our core release is perfect," says FinSock COO Rich Svir. "FinSock may not be the total software solution to all companies. It will, however, position itself as a simple, yet robust, software solution for the small or startup businesses. FinSock is ideal for certain companies who are currently frustrated with the high up-front hardware and software costs, ever changing IT complexity, and IT resources."

The "simple solution" (in Svir's words) provided by FinSock promises, he says, "to ease the minds of business owners by enabling them to run their business without the high costs and/or headaches usually associated with technology."

Comprised initially of a few key features, FinSock will be available for a predictable monthly fee as an on-demand subscription basis, says Svir. 

"As a web-based solution," he continues, "FinSock's appeal is that it will ultimately reduce or eliminate any implementation risks and costly technical infrastructure typically associated with small business software solutions. "

FinSock's immediate applications scheduled for the June 2006 worldwide release include: AddressBook, Calendar, MessageCenter, FileCabinet, ClientManager, HRMonitor, and Scheduler.

It seems they may be targeting the same small business market that Office Live is? It may be nice to have an alternative to Microsoft!

Yes it appears similar, but with more features, (check out the communication module)2 years of operating experience. My understanding of businessitonline is only free for a limited time with a 2 user max. I don't know what the pricing will be, but this may definitely worth checking out.

This seems very similar to Business IT Online (www.businessitonline.com) which has been on the market for some time and offers much of this for free.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
