ObjectsOnClouds.org – An Open Source Project Initiative

The ObjectsOnClouds Open Source Project Initiative (ObjectsOnClouds Project) is a worldwide collaborative effort to develop a set of technologies interworking together as a cloud computing platform. The ObjectsOnClouds Cloud Applications Computing Platform (ObjectsOnClouds Platform) consists of a Java-based server component (The Ionosphere Server), IDEs for building cloud applications (Aurora), platform-native desktop cloud application clients (Gravity), as well as AJAX/web-based cloud applications.

Highlights of some of the select features the ObjectsOnClouds Platform are – real-time multi-user collaborative multi-language content editing, version control with instant push notifications upon content changes, fine-grained permission control for secure access to contents, and much more.

The ObjectsOnClouds Platform is also a complete cloud applications development environment. It features many innovative ideas including a free-form “natural” database which abstracts the complexity of traditional relationship databases. This allows even non-technical people to easily create the next generation of cloud applications very quickly and easily.

The Ionosphere Server – Java-based server component
The Ionoshephere Server is a Java EE/GlassFish-based server component that is central to the ObjectsOnClouds Platform. The RESTful-based Web Services API is built-in for fully connected cloud computing with both the platform-native desktop clients and AJAX/web clients. A Web Server API is also included to serve validated HTML pages for deploying dynamic websites that are fully optimized for search engines.

Aurora for Mac and Windows – IDEs for building cloud applications Aurora is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for building cloud applications. As a native application for Mac and Windows, Aurora is designed to take advantage of the platform’s speed and efficiency.

Intelligent web plug-in tracks customer intent in real-time and optimizes delivery of product offers from affiliate networks

EchoCurrent Software, Inc. today announced the availability of the Affiliate Product Optimizer™, a software service to enable web publishers to better optimize product and ad targeting f r o m affiliate networks. This product is free of charge and initially available for new or existing users of the Commission Junction® affiliate network.

Web publishers are increasingly relying on affiliate networks to source products and offers in support of their topic-based web sites, blogs, or online stores. Unlike Google AdSense®, which will automatically match ads to the content of each web page, sites which rely on affiliate networks have lacked the ability to do automated matching of customer interests to products, or have been forced to build custom solutions.

With the introduction of the Affiliate Product Optimizer™, publishers gain the ability to understand their visitors’ interests in real-time and display optimal, personalized product offers f r o m affiliate networks. By truly listening to website visitors’ words and actions, publishers can increase their revenues by showing their customers the most relevant products at just the right time.

The Affiliate Product Optimizer™ goes much further than standard search or page ads by building a unique profile of each web site visitor as they interact with the web site, a“Customer Echo”. The Echo is continually refined over the life of the user session. Rather than using static page content to match offers, the Customer Echo is used to select the most appropriate offers f r o m the affiliate network, specific to each visitor. This provides each visitor with a unique and optimized experience based on their personal browsing interests and exhibited site behaviors.

Initially released with support for the Commission Junction® network, and using the Commission Junction® Web Services, the Affiliate Product Optimizer™ easily plugs into a publisher’s website by adding a pre-generated piece of javascript to the page. In addition, plugins are available for  WordPress and the Joomla content management system, allowing this new capability to be easily added to these popular platforms without touching any code.

The Affiliate Product Optimizer is being initially released free of charge and operates in the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. Website publishers sign up at echocurrent.com, add the plugin to their web sites, and the EchoCurrentservers handle the rest. EchoCurrent provides tools and reports that make the publishers’ lives easy, tracking, for example, trends in the Customer Echoes, products of highest interest, and what web content is driving the most product click-throughs. With this valuable information, publishers optimize their site content to generate more revenue.

“Coming f r o m a background in business intelligence technology at the enterprise level, it was clear to me there was a big opportunity to make affiliate sites smarter” says Mike Ruggieri, founder and president of EchoCurrent Software, Inc. “By combining our Customer Intent Engine with the Commission Junction Web Services, we were able to build a powerful affiliate optimization widget that can drive higher revenues for site publishers while simultaneously improving the customer experience for all visitors.”

About EchoCurrent Software, Inc.
Founded in 2008, EchoCurrent Software is dedicated to delivering technology that makes web sites smarter. EchoCurrent has developed a proprietary Customer Intent Engine that can track user behavior in real-time, identifying patterns, capturing data, or reacting to events as they occur. The company has released its first product, the Affiliate Product Optimizer, which utilizes their Customer Intent Engine with affiliate network services to enable web publishers to make more effective use of their affiliate product catalogs and create higher value customer experiences.

With SaaS Microsoft Dynamics CRM, TLA Technologies is responsible for managing the servers, the software, and the backups for their customers. The hosted CRM solution frees customers from purchasing, and maintaining hardware and software.

Lassa and Harrison use Dynamics CRM themselves, saying the software is easy to use and works seamlessly with Microsoft Office products. They use their Dynamics CRM in-house expertise to support client requests.

It is the tool of choice for improved customer service, insightful marketing communication, and streamlined sales processes.
