Logodex.com Launches Groundbreaking Visual Search Engine, Offering Myriad Benefits to Businesses, Consumers

Charlotte, NC, February 01, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Thanks to the increased prominence of photo-sharing platforms such as Instagram, as well as digital “bulletin board” applications like Pinterest, the Internet is more image-based than ever before, leading some pundits to herald the advent of “the visual Web,” and of visual marketing. Taking that trend even further is a groundbreaking new site called Logodex.com. The first of its kind, Logodex.com is a visual search engine, designed to streamline and simplify the information retrieval process while offering unique benefits to businesses and brands. The site is set to launch on February 6—and businesses are encouraged to get in on the ground floor, as rankings within the Logodex.com database will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.

According to site developer Johnny Lawrence, the impetus for Logodex.com was to provide search engine users with an easier, simpler way to locate the information they needed. “In a way, it cuts through all of the noise and the clutter found on traditional search engines,” says Lawrence. “It is all about making it quicker and easier to locate needed services. The user only needs to input the kind of business needed, as well as the city, and the Logodex.com search engine will display the logos of companies that fit the description.” Clicking on any one of these logos will take the consumers to the website of the applicable company or local business.

Lawrence says that the appeal to search engine users is obvious, but the benefits for businesses and brands are just as important. “This takes the idea of visual marketing to a whole new level,” he says. “Businesses can make strong first impressions by using striking visuals; uploading a logo to the Logodex.com database makes it easier than ever to boost brand visibility.” Businesses can also promote themselves on a Groupon-styled “local deals” page, on which Logodex.com provides businesses with opportunities to host discount codes and coupons. Search engine users can sign up to receive updates and deals from the local businesses they frequent.

Lawrence notes that the simplified functionality and vast logo database of Logodex.com offer immense consumer appeal—so businesses are encouraged to take part. “Businesses can choose to list themselves under different keywords, including their city, their industry, and different buzzwords for the services they offer,” he explains. “The bottom line is that this provides a tremendous opportunity for companies to market themselves and make themselves more visible to the clients who matter the most—that is, local consumers.” Logodex.com is committed to helping businesses with those marketing efforts; a robust social media campaign is planned to draw users to the Logodex.com database.

A listing in the Logodex.com directory is free, Lawrence says, though premium memberships are available. “Some of the paid features include a larger logo placement and more search terms,” he offers. Rankings within the Logodex.com search engine are decided on a first-come, first-serve basis, however, which Lawrence says creates a level playing field—and a sense of urgency. “It obviously helps to have your business listed first among its competitors,” Lawrence concludes. “As such, now is the time for businesses to take advantage of this first-of-its-kind visual search technology.”

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
"We are a well-established player in the application life cycle management market and we also have a very strong version control product," stated Flint Brenton, CEO of CollabNet,, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.

Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
