Queplix Data Virtualization Platform Integrates with Social Media

New Application Software Blades in Virtual Data Manager Enable Companies to Integrate Social Media Data

Queplix Corp., a provider of data virtualization, has introduced three new Application Software Blades (http://bit.ly/e4wpQf) integrating social media sites and their content. Companies can now securely and automatically capture information from FaceBook, LinkedIn and Google Contacts and harmonize it with their own corporate data. Queplix is the first data virtualization solutions provider to bring packaged social media data integration capability into a standard product family for use in corporate data integration projects.

Amidst the exploding popularity of social media sites, companies typically struggle with how to incorporate and leverage the data within these communities for business gain. With the new social media integration capability, Queplix allows organizations to combine data from social media sources with internal information. This provides a new layer of intelligence to business-supporting functions that benefit from having greater visibility into market opinion and demand.

Unique Application Software Blades enable the Queplix Virtual Data Manager (http://bit.ly/eJMkZ9) platform to securely connect to many different source applications and data. The new Application Software Blades for social media can identify and extract key metadata and associated security information from FaceBook, LinkedIn and Google Contacts, then bring it into the Queplix Engine to support data integration with any existing or new corporate applications.

"The value of social media and its potential to enhance corporate initiatives is widely recognized, yet barely tapped," said Mark Cashman, chief executive officer, Queplix. "Adding FaceBook, LinkedIn and Google Contacts to the arsenal of applications and data the Virtual Data Manager can integrate with, allows companies to leverage dynamic social media for a variety of functions, such as customer relationship management, sales force automation, marketing activities, public perception monitoring, and more."

The new social media functionality in Virtual Data Manager showcases Queplix's ability to integrate data from multiple sources and then keep it harmonized as changes occur. The powerful architecture of the Virtual Data Manager drives the application and data integration process. The product can manage a simple integration between two applications or scale easily to integrate many multiple instances of complex applications.

In addition to the new social media blades, Queplix also offers Application Software Blades for customer relationship management applications such as Siebel, SalesForce.com, and many other on-premise and cloud-based applications. Additional Application Software Blades will be made available to support business critical functions as Queplix extends its integration capabilities across many applications.

Availability

The Queplix Virtual Data Manager application blades for FaceBook (http://bit.ly/dEHYgM), LinkedIn (http://bit.ly/gtByGD) and Google Contacts (http://bit.ly/fGyYUm) are available for shipment immediately.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
