Verdant Web Technologies LLC Launched

New Applications Services Provider Offers Web-Based Solutions for EPA Compliance

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Addressing the dual challenges of increasing scrutiny of environmental risks and the intensifying need for organizations to streamline compliance with government regulations, Verdant Web Technologies LLC (Verdant) has launched in Portland, Oregon with a mission to help multi-facility organizations create uniform, paperless and cost-efficient environmental compliance data that will meet the stringent requirements of environmental regulators.

A wholly owned subsidiary of leading NW consulting firm PBS Environmental + Engineering Inc., Verdant was created to leverage the power of technology to simplify and lower the cost of developing and maintaining asbestos surveys, lead information, drinking water data, training records and other regulatory data. Modules for these and other environmental issues are bundled to create a custom platform for easy, web-based data management.

"Verdant uses technology to do what technology does best," says PBS President and Verdant co-founder Ron Petti, "and that is to store, organize and make readily accessible large amounts of data in a simple and cost effective way."

According to Petti, environmental regulators are becoming increasingly open to technology solutions to satisfy environmental record keeping requirements. "We're finding a growing acceptance, particularly in EPA Region 10, of paperless, web-based data management systems for environmental recordkeeping. Our instincts tell us that this acceptance will only grow as regulators observe how superior these systems perform, while also lowering the cost of compliance and reducing the overall environmental footprint of paper-based record keeping," said Petti.

Verdant Web Technologies' customized data modules can be populated from archived information or through ongoing data input by the user. Other Verdant services include organization of archived data, scanning and uploading, interactive facility plans, database creation, and web hosting services.

The Verdant data center features the latest modern enterprise level information technologies for reliability and performance. The Verdant web hosting servers exist in a redundant cloud, backed by an enterprise-level fiber internet connection that has uptime in excess of 99.99%. The web and database connectivity is secured using industry-standard encryption for privacy.

Verdant is headquartered in Portland, Oregon and has a core team consisting of industry practitioners and software developers with more than 25 years of experience in the environmental compliance industry. Verdant clients include school districts, universities, public agencies, hospitals, and large-scale corporations. Read more about Verdant at www.verdantwebtech.com.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
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-c...
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 ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
