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".

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
