Banckle – Simple and Secure Collaboration Apps

Banckle – Simple and Secure Collaboration Apps
http://banckle.com/

Launched in August 2010, Banckle.com is a collaboration website dedicated to delivering cloud-computing solutions to enterprises on a global scale. Their mission is to provide easy-to-use applications that enable teams to work together regardless of location. In essence, they have created a suite of powerful collaboration tools — file sharing, web conferencing, live and group chat, email server, remote access, site search, enterprise-level instant messaging — and made all of them accessible online via an intuitive dashboard interface… just logon, point-and-click, and you’re good to go. All of their work is powered by a singular vision: to bring people together. That may sound corny, but they are stimulated by the idea of bringing real collaboration to the masses. They feel that collaboration is the vehicle by which people can become more innovative and productive. Their solutions are designed to be used by any enterprise, regardless of size and location. They are secure, accessible, scalable, flexible, customizable and, well, a lot of fun to use! The price isn’t bad either (hint: free for one year!). As the newest division of Aspose Pty Ltd, the world’s leading .NET and Java component vendor, Banckle has a worldwide footprint — they have a corporate presence in both the U.S. and Australia and their distributed teams are located throughout the world. Their working model reflects the global nature of collaboration and is a real-life manifestation of their vision to bring people together through collaboration.

TextChannels – Social News Aggregator

TextChannels – Social News Aggregator
http://www.textchannels.com/

TextChannels is a social news aggregator. Instead of having subsections for different subjects, users create, customize and moderate news channels. Members can follow news channels, give stars to posts and comment. Channel moderators can remove posts and comments, or block abusive users. Voting for comments is more complex than in most news aggregators. Instead of having a simple up/down button, readers can vote for multiple parameters (e.g. funny, useful etc). News channels have different presentation needs. Channel administrators can fine tune their sorting algorithms for both posts and comments to fit their preferences.

Centius – A Smarter Approach to Business Intelligence

Centius – A Smarter Approach to Business Intelligence
http://centiusnet.com/

At Centius we’ve strived to make our products as intuitive and user friendly as possible. This all emerged from our strong belief that other BI products on the market today are too burdensome for the user and required a steep learning curve. THeir application is designed by the business user for the business user. In designing the Qi™ platform, they took into account all the struggles they ran into as users of the traditional BI solutions. They focused especially on narrowing the gap between the user and viewer (of report, charts and dashboards) and the technical staff. The end result is a very intuitive easy to learn solution with a very low implementation risk. The next generation of Centius QiTM will include more features towards user customization. Their goal is to make the system work for you and make you as a user more efficient at your core job. This has been added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Weather Sparks – Interactive Weather Charts

Weather Sparks – Interactive Weather Charts
http://weatherspark.com/

WeatherSpark is a new type of weather website, with interactive weather graphs that allow you to pan and zoom through the entire history of any weather station on earth. Get multiple forecasts for the current location, overlaid on records and averages to put it all in context. We’re still in beta, so please pardon any rough edges on the site or glitches in the data – weather stations sometimes report bogus values, and we’re working to sort those out. We currently have more than 4,000 weather stations, but are working to add more. It’s primarily METAR right now, but we want to add Mesonet/PWS as well.
