Since its launch on the Google Play store on February 7th 2014 and the Apple App store on March 11, 2014, Spermy's Journey has been downloaded over 4 million times and was a featured review on DailyAppShow, which cites statements such as, "The Next Flappy Bird", "Entertaining and funny", and "hilarious and highly addictive" (1).

Spermy's Journey has generated $25,300 USD over the last 30 days via in-app purchases and advertising revenue.

Spermy's Journey is available for download free at the Google Play store at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sperminator.game

Spermy's Journey is available on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spermys-journey-race-to-egg%21/id741293412?mt=8

Spermy's Journey is also available for Android users at: http://apps.goodereader.com/games/android-games-casual/?did=29746

The Company is also pleased to announce that the developer of Spermy's Journey, Mr. Brian Appell, will be joining the Company's board of advisors. Mr. Appell is a veteran tech entrepreneur and mobile app developer, and founder of Avalanche Mountain Apps, a mobile application company that focuses primarily on creating games for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Brian Appell states: "I look forward to being a part of the Brisio team and working with them to maximize the value of their existing mobile app portfolio and to generate ideas to help grow their stable of apps".

Paul Andreola, CEO of the Company, states: "In the last 90 days, since changing our name to Brisio Innovations Inc. and launching our new business plan focused on mobile app acquisition and acceleration, the Company has successfully listed on the tech-friendly Canadian Securities Exchange, completed 43 mobile app acquisitions, increased its overall install base from 0 to almost 1.3 million and increased its combined daily downloads from 0 to over 100,000. We have also entered into a letter of intent to acquire an interest in the largest independent app store in Canada, which, if completed, will allow us to increase exposure to our growing portfolio of apps and help gain exposure for the thousands of software developers trying to gain attention for their apps in a very competitive marketplace. We feel these developments will put us in the remarkable position for a new junior tech company of being a cash flow positive business in the very near future".

"In all respects, we are ahead of our own aggressive schedule of developing new value for our shareholders. With industry statistics based on the recent acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook and the IPO of King Digital valuing each at over $40(2) and over $60(3) per user respectively, the install base of over 1 Million users of Spermy's Journey adds substantial value to the Company. Many of the major app markets, such as North America and Asia, remain virtually untapped and should be very strong prospects for future growth of the Spermy's Journey game and franchise".

The additional value to the Company of being able to cross market the other apps in our portfolio to the over 1 million active users of Spermy's Journey make this latest acquisition invaluable to our future growth and success".

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades. So what has changed? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan, Solutions Architect at Red Hat, discussed the impact commodity hardware, ubiquitous connectivity, and innovations in open source software are having on the connected universe of people, thi...
WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
