Speexx demonstrates organisational impact of its online language training solution by securing two Chinese e-learning awards

Two e-learning awards for web-based Speexx solution out of over 100 competing training solutions.

Munich and Beijing - Monday, 19 November 2012 - Speexx, the global provider of online language training solutions, has won the prestigious BOOAOO e-learning Award in China for 'Best Courseware'. In parallel, Speexx's global customer GEA Process Engineering has been awarded for the 'Best Application of Blended Learning.'

BOOAOO is a series of awards issued by CEEFE (China Enterprise e-Learning Forum & Expo), which is organised by China Online Edu. The BOOAOO judging panel in Beijing consisted of respected scholars and experts from the Chinese e-learning and corporate learning industries. The panel highly recommended Speexx's innovative courseware which brings together technology, coaches, content and students to enable a convenient and efficient way of language training. Speexx was awarded for the 'Best Courseware' category out of over 100 competing solution providers of the industry.

An additional tribute to the Speexx solution was paid during the annual CEEFE e-learning enterprise application event in Beijing. Every year, CEEFE selects the best case studies in which enterprises apply the latest learning technology as part of their business development. Here, GEA, one of the largest system providers for food and energy and a significant Speexx customer, was presented the 'Best Application of Blended Learning' Award based on the Speexx blended language training solution it has implemented for its global workforce.

Armin Hopp, Founder and President of Speexx, commented, "We are delighted to be recognised by two international training bodies and are thrilled that our online language solution is delivering an easy-to-use platform for students that wish to improve their communication skills. With increased cross-border activities, the need for common business language skills is crucial to business growth. Multilingual communication is now recognised as an asset for all business activities, not just for sales and marketing. Our award-winning solution provides a cloud-based, innovative and blended delivery platform to ensure that staff benefit from flexible online training and personalised coaching."

Today's awards build on Speexx's presence in mainland China. In May 2012, Speexx was awarded with the prestigious 2012 Golden Engine Award for 'Strategically and Sustainably Driving China's Education Industry'. Speexx took the top spot in the 'Best contribution to the improvement of the education industry' category. The national award has been initiated by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
