Biometrics Advancements: Tech Leaders Develop Innovative Smart Technologies as Market Quickly Evolves; Smart Wallet up Next

CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, February 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Biometric tech companies continue to cultivate mobile technology. With smart phones and smart wallets gaining popularity, the smart wallet is poised to lead the biometrics sector: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG), Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN) and Synaptics Incorporated (NASDAQ: SYNA).

NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB:NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing m-commerce market, announced the release of new product images and a consumer FAQ for Wocket™ which is set to launch this year. Wocket™ is a smart wallet much like the smart phone and smart watch. NXT-ID is introducing its innovative, patent-pending Wocket™ as the next natural step in the evolution of smart devices.  Answering consumer question number one, "Why buy a Wocket™?" the FAQ tells us, "Wocket™ replaces all the cards in your wallet. Wocket™ keeps all your information private while reducing the number of cards you have to carry with you. Wocket™ is smartest wallet you will ever own."  

To read the full press release, click here: http://www.fnmprofiles.com/profiles-nxtd.html 

Credit, debit, ATM, loyalty, gift, ID, membership, insurance, ticket, emergency, medical, business, contacts, coupon, and virtually any card can be protected on Wocket™. Up to 10,000 cards, records, coupons, etc. and up to 100 voice commands can also be stored on Wocket™ and more can be supported with optional additional memory. Addressing competition in the digital wallet market, NXT-ID notes in the FAQ: "Rather than replace a wallet as many 'digital wallet' technologies attempt to do, we chose to improve the wallet. Unlike other digital wallet solutions that depend on connectivity to choose a payment account, Wocket(TM) does not depend upon the cloud to select or make a payment."

A key element for expansion and growth in the biometrics, m-commerce technology is the push for mobile payment platforms, which require increased security in order to aid adoption. Companies leading the path for next generation applications designed for SmartPhones and SmartWallets are NXT-ID, Apple, Google, Nuance Communications and Synaptics Incorporated.  

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) s reportedly pushing deeper into mobile payments, leveraging its vast stockpile of credit card information from iTunes, as well as the new Touch ID sensor on the iPhone 5s. Apple also recently announced iBooks® Textbooks and iTunes U® Course Manager are expanding into new markets across Asia, Latin America, Europe and elsewhere around the world. iBooks Textbooks bring Multi-Touch™ textbooks with dynamic, current and interactive content to teachers and students in 51 countries now including Brazil, Italy and Japan; and iTunes U Course Manager, available in 70 countries now including Russia, Thailand and Malaysia, allows educators to create and distribute courses for their own classrooms, or share them publicly, on the iTunes U app.

Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) announced recently that Patrick Pichette, SVP and Chief Financial Officer, will participate in a question-and-answer session at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference in San Francisco. The session is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. Eastern Time / 8:15 a.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
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.
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.
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...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages.

Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone.

Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, will discuss how they b...
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.
