Compare the Cloud launches CloudPitch.me


(PRWEB UK) 23 August 2013

Compare the Cloud, an independent cloud computing comparison, information, and advice website, today announces the launch of CloudPitch.me.

CloudPitch.me is a free online resource where Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) have the opportunity to pitch for your businesss cloud computing requirements. In 150 words or less, each service provider has to explain why their cloud solution or technology will solve a particular business problem better than their competitors. Visitors to the site then have the opportunity to vote up pitches that resonate with them; and overall voting directly impacts the order of appearance of that provider.

The concept of the 150 word Cloud Pitch was spawned from a Compare the Cloud blog written in March 2013 by Paul Bevan – a Bloor Research Analyst, who identified the need for service providers to make the connection to their customers needs and aspirations and to articulate the benefits, or face the prospect of disappearing into obscurity – even if their offering is technically superior.

Luke Wheeler, Chairman of Compare the Cloud, explains further: The Cloud Computing industry is melting pot of exciting technological innovation from companies of all sizes and from every corner of the planet. There is barely an area of business information technology that isnt being revolutionised or reformed by cloud computing in some way. The flip-side of this is that theres a lot of confusion in the market place both from end-users getting to grips with new technology and whats out there, to the service providers themselves who are unsure of their messaging and their best route to market. Cloud Computing has to cross the chasm and make it into mainstream adoption where its trusted to support mission-critical operations by even the most risk-averse businesses, and to deliver an ROI to every department and stakeholder in a business.

Graham Spivey, Sales & Marketing Director of The Bunker a lead sponsor and supplier of web hosting to CloudPitch.me, adds: Compare the Cloud exists to simplify Cloud Computing, provider selection and the uptake of Cloud-based technologies. CloudPitch.me is an exciting and compelling proposition as it forces service providers to dispatch with techno-babble and marketing gloss – and to focus on their solution and the business problems it solves. It focuses the mind of the provider and is of significant value to end users.

Cloudpitch.me can be found at http://cloudpitch.me.

SysTools MailXaminer Launches Team Collaboration Feature

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

MailXaminer, the application launched by Indian software firm SysTools Software Private Limited, now has an innovative Team Collaboration feature that enables multiple individuals (corporate entities, reviewers, digital forensics services firms, paralegals, etc.), interconnected on the same network, to analyze and review evidence related to the same case.

This feature allows the user to work independently and simultaneously with one case administrator.

Scanning and indexing a large volume of data (to the tune of 1TB), even working under the most stringent deadlines), can take weeks with any given tool.

In such circumstances, the only logical solution can be achieved by breaking the data into smaller chunks and indexing them on multiple machines simultaneously, to be available on a central server later. This will definitely increase the processing time for the investigation process, as multiple machines are being used for investigation at the same time.

This makes MailXaminer an ideal email investigation and eDiscovery software tool for law enforcement agencies, law firms, or investigative teams that need to coordinate the search and analysis of emails in large volumes. For their benefit MailXaminer also features the powerful indexing search engine and unique cloud based review platform.

MailXaminer harnesses the power of “client-server architecture” to empower eDiscovery analysts and technicians to complete forensic analysis of large volume of emails at a much faster rate than before.

Digital forensics investigators can quickly and easily search, review, and analyze emails. The easy-to- use interface allows investigators to find critical data, visualize relevant relationships, and drill down to the most pertinent evidence.

With MailXaminer, one can index and search multiple email sources, file types, and metadata. Results can be in a visual layout of choice and documents of interest can be exported in a wide variety of file formats.

MailXaminer includes the most advanced export and sharing features available. Work done by analysts and reviewers can be consolidated into a single result facilitating collaborative investigations.

Essentially, the MailXaminer Client application comes loaded with all the features that are already available in the standalone MailXaminer version.

The upcoming release of MailXaminer with the Team Collaboration feature will have two components:

MailXaminer Administrator/Server is the primary component and will perform three critical functions:

New Resource Launches to Help Find the Best Cloud Bookkeeping Services


(PRWEB) June 24, 2014

The online Cloud Bookkeeping resource hub has been newly launched to help freelancers and self-employed workers to take charge of their accounts and harness the power of cloud computing in order to better managing their finances.

The website which can be found at http://www.cloudbookkeeping.org.uk/ has gotten off to a busy start by offering plenty of advice to those who are interested in learning more about cloud bookkeeping and cloud accounting. The first portion of the website is devoted to explaining and demystifying this modern approach to bookkeeping, covering how the services work and why it can be a good choice for many individuals and business organizations.

As the website has evolved and expanded over the short period it has been live, the team have been busily reviewing and evaluating a selection of the best and worst online cloud book keeping services available to individuals and small groups. This published advice not only covers the main contenders in great detail, but also provides a lot of advice for evaluating the options according to the needs of the customer.

When speaking to the team behind the website, the inspiration for the website and their future plans were readily shared. Everyone keeps hearing about the cloud and cloud computing but not many people correctly know what it means, the site founder of the website noted. When we began looking into the different cloud services online, it became clear that cloud bookkeeping and online accounting were the main areas where traction was really being found, he continued. That told us that there must be a lot of people out there that could benefit from these services, but might not be sure how best to harness them or even that they need them, and thus the website was born, the shared further.

When looking at the different online service providers in this growing sector, the website team were able to clearly pick out a handful of options that offered the best range of services and usability at a fair price. These options all made their way to the comprehensive guide to the top 5 online accounting software leader board which includes such eminent names as Cloud Bookkeeper, Cloud Bean Counter, and Fresh Books. With so many options to choose from, the website aims to simplify the selection process and arm consumers with the information they need to make the right decision for their needs and the needs of their company or the services they offer.

Future plans for the website include working with those offering these cloud-based financial services and establishing promotions and discounts for the readers of the website. Although these deals are yet to be finalized, it is expected they will include free trials and discounts on the price of the most popular online bookkeeping services out there.

With many more users turning to the cloud for their business needs, it appears that sites like Cloud Bookkeeping will continue to play an important role in informing and educating customers in the options available to them, in order to help them find the best solutions for their needs.
