ADDISON, Ill., Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zadro Web (http://zadroweb.com) announced that beginning in 2013, all future offers from this Illinois-based service provider will be focused on delivering support for competitive online marketing efforts. This marks a shift from five years of professional services dedicated to answering physical networking needs in a small business. In 2013, Zadro Web (formerly known as Zadro Solutions, Inc.) has completed its internal shifts and rebranding efforts to attain a model offering expert guidance in web design, content management, lead generation, inbound marketing and SEO exclusively. The company announced plans to continue providing the services most needed by today's growing small business owners.
"A lot has changed in the global marketplace since we started offering services publicly in 2007," stated Dario Zadro, owner of Zadro Web, "and it is definitely moving even further away from physical needs in the stores themselves, to being equipped and built specifically to better serve the web-based global markets. We began by offering services focused on IT, telephones and networks, and basic web design because five years ago, these services were the primary means that most small businesses had to improve efficiencies, increase profitability and to reach and serve their markets. However, the last five years have seen the web become much more crucial to any competitive business model, so we have been slowly bringing in experts, forging strategic partnerships, and migrating our own service offerings to more completely meet these evolving marketing goals. As 2013 begins, we are proud to announce the completion of this gradual shifting in our own offers and branding efforts - a shift that now connects small businesses to cutting edge assistance with web design, custom Wordpress site building and maintenance, SEO, and other aspects of inbound marketing shared in all of today's successful business stories." He adds, "By focusing only on expert web services, Zadro Web can better help businesses of any size to remain competitive and growing in current markets. Zadro Web picks up where Zadro Solutions, Inc. had led us in the continued support of small businesses."
Zadro points out that in addition to offering more competitive and necessary services to its established client base, Zadro Web is now able to also offer services to a more encompassing group of small business owners. "When our business model was centered on answering needs in networks and telephones, it required a lot of physical, hands-on work in each location. The nature of the work limited our service area to primarily Illinois businesses, most of them within 100-200 miles of our own building. In contrast, the web-based services we are now providing exclusively do not fall under the same physical restrictions, thus allowing a greater number of businesses in a much wider geographical range to harness the powerful marketing edge we offer. There is no longer a limit on who we can help, and there are more powerful tools at our disposal and in-house here to be able to help them. Our model has always centered on providing the best services for small businesses to compete and grow - and the future of this direction is decidedly web-based. We look forward to reaching more businesses and with them, exploring better ways to harness the web's commercial and connective power."

The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
