NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Since its 2009 inception, ReputationChanger.com has routinely been honored as the top online reputation management company in the world, including a prestigious accolade from TopSEOs. A significant part of the company's reputation for efficacy and innovation stems from its groundbreaking Reputation Command Center technology; the Reputation Command Center has long offered the company's clients with a platform for proactively monitoring and managing their online image -- and now, this best-in-class technology has been made available to consumers across the world, free of charge and with no obligation to sign up for further services.
Announcing the company's new, complimentary reputation management services, ReputationChanger.com President Michael Zammuto explains why the company has decided to make these resources more widely accessible. "The simple reality is that every person and every brand has an online reputation; it may be a positive one or it may be negative, but everyone has an online reputation," he remarks. "Moreover, that online reputation can ultimately prove make or break; what people say about you on the Internet matters a great deal, yet, troublingly, many individuals and companies still do not know exactly what kind of online reputation they actually have."
That could change, with the advent of ReputationChanger.com's complimentary Reputation Command Center service. The Reputation Command Center is the heart of the company's entire operation, an online hub where clients can monitor the Web for any mentions of their name. Zammuto says the Reputation Command Center is ReputationChanger.com's flagship online reputation monitoring and management platform -- and that it more than exceeds the capabilities of any other product or service on the market.
"The Reputation Command Center's monitoring tools allow for users to scour the Internet for any mention of their name," Zammuto explains. "That includes the name of an individual, of a company, or of a branded product. The Reputation Command Center lets users determine exactly where their reputation stands by combing the Web for reviews, social media mentions, search engine listings, and beyond."
While online reputation alerts are not necessarily new, the Reputation Command Center offers threat assessments and monitoring tools that are technologically superior to the products of any other company -- including Google itself. "Our online reputation monitoring tools go further than the Google Search algorithms, or even Google Alerts, could ever go," affirms Zammuto. Indeed, The Reputation Command Center monitors online mentions in the deep Web; this includes mentions of the client's name or branded terms in Facebook and Twitter conversations, as well as in search listings only cataloged by Bing or by Yahoo.
"We are the only company in the world offering this kind of comprehensive reputation monitoring platform -- and we are offering it to consumers totally free of charge, without any obligation," enthuses Zammuto. "Individuals and corporations alike are invited to scan the Web and find out what kind of listings and social mentions are out there. Knowing your online reputation is the first step toward either defending or improving it."
For clients who are less than thrilled with what the Reputation Command Center reveals about their online portrayal, further services are available from the industry-leading reputation defense company. Paying Reputation Changer subscribers have their Reputation Command Center dashboard augmented with a comprehensive social media management tool. "The idea behind the social media management tool is that clients can proactively build their brand and establish strong, positive, and authoritative online content, all in the interest of suppressing or counterbalancing negative listings," offers Zammuto.
In particular, the Reputation Command Center's exclusive social media management tools allow users to manage as many as 100 social media accounts at once, including accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Zammuto says more social networks are being integrated all the time.
The Reputation Command Center is designed to provide Reputation Changer clients -- and now, non-paying, non-subscribing customers -- with resources for taking charge of their own online image, but the company continues to offer a variety of more exclusive, boutique services, designed to address particular reputational needs. "One example of what Reputation Changer can do is Wikipedia management," Zammuto declares. "Many clients, especially businesses and public figures, come to us because their Wikipedia entry is covered with negative, unflattering information, or else is riddled with errors. Reputation Changer's team can help clients clean up their Wikipedia pages, removing inaccuracies and framing information in the most positive, brand-enhancing way possible."
Zammuto says the examples of ReputationChanger's high-end services, for individuals and for brands, just go on from there. "Another service we provide is a review widget, which clients can affix to their online properties to help them gather consumer feedback and effectively moderate and manage those reviews," he says. "The tool is SEO-driven, which means that brands can make sure their best reviews and ratings are highlighted on the first page of Google search results."
Ultimately, ReputationChanger.com offers a comprehensive suite of online reputation management services, including PR blitz strategies, brand enhancement campaigns, and more. What unites all of these strategies is a zeal for technological development -- and a desire to help individuals and brands protect themselves against online defamation. "ReputationChanger.com is heavily invested in R&D, and the best-in-class technology implemented in the Reputation Command Center, the review widget, and all of these other products proves it," notes Zammuto.
"Still, what characterizes our company most fundamentally is the passion we have for giving clients a say in their own online portrayal," he concludes. "That is why we have made this unprecedented move of offering free, no-strings-attached access to the Reputation Command Center, and that is why so many clients trust their online branding to ReputationChanger.com."
Developed in 2009, ReputationChanger.com has grown to be known as the foremost online reputation management and monitoring company in the world. Praised by TopSEOs as the #1 company of its kind, Reputation Changer is esteemed for its standard-setting practices and innovations in the field of online reputation monitoring and repair. The company was founded by a team of online marketing veterans, eager to provide individuals and brands with control over their online reputation; now led by President Michael Zammuto, ReputationChanger.com boasts a team of SEO professionals, content developers, social marketing gurus, account executives, designers, and more.
Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
