YouSendIt on new Electronic Signature and Cloud Offerings

August 24, 2011

I recently sat down  for a talk with Mihir Nanavati, senior director of Product Management of online file sharing company YouSendIt and got a chance to learn about how the company has expanded its service offering from sending large files via email to mobile apps, e-signature technology and cloud storage.

The company is looking to continue to make products and services which are easy to use - and over time the company hopes to sell more management solutions to the enterprise to more effectively manage what the users are doing.

One interesting stat is more than 61% of knowledge workers store their information in e-mail. Actually, I am surprised the number isn't larger.

Here is an article about the interview which is worth a read if you are in a meeting or don't want to watch the video.

Speech analytics in greater demand

At the recent SpeechTek 2011 conference in New York I gained some great insight into the state of speech technology. For example, Jeff Schlueter of Nexidia told me his company’s speech analytics solutions have been in greater demand in this current economy as the desire to control costs has led to increased adoption of speech analytics. In addition, the company has released version 9.0 of its Enterprise Speech Intelligence product suite which cuts the TCO in half and allowing for customers to handle even larger amounts of data.

BlackBerry PlayBook First Thoughts

May 19, 2011

In my review of the BlackBerry PlayBook I must say I am impressed with the device - it is small - not too heavy, feels good in your hands and runs Flash like a champ. The back of the device is rubberized which holds the promise of increased durability and a large degree of scratch-resistance. TMCnet's Stefanie Mosca has more thoughts on the device and as a BlackBerry user it was certainly more functional for her. She also thinks it is an ideal device for traveling which is tough to disagree with - it likely even fits in most purses.

I was just interviewed on a podcast by Peter Radizeski who in addition to being a TMC blogger is an expert on the telecom channel and a sought out social media and marketing consultant. On the online community building and SEO podcast we discussed not only how to improve search rank but how to select keywords and use call to action to ensure success.

I Hope you like it.
