1World Announces International Launch; Also Awarded by AlwaysOn as a Top 100 Global Company to Watch

San Jose, CA, July 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- 1World Online, an engagement applications, content, and analytics platform company, today announced the official launch of its international market expansions, and also that the firm received an industry-wide award as a top global company. 1World is launching today 1World Europe and 1World Asia. In related news, 1World has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Global 100 Companies to Watch.

“It’s an honor to be selected as a top global company as just a three-year old enterprise,” said Alex Fedosseev, CEO and co-founder of 1World, “it shows I think the tremendous value we have created for our partners, and for social research and engagement on the Internet around the world. Our name ‘1World’ illustrates that we always had the vision to be a global company. And since we’ve launched our 2.0 Platform earlier this year, our service usage, overall traffic, and membership count have been in a hockey stick growth mode. We have achieved a working model providing high-value to web publishers trying to better engage their users and learn more about them, as well as to end-users trying to determine, on almost any particular topic, what do people really think?”

Some recent milestones for 1World including having passed 300 partners and customers using its Software-as-a-Service web publisher system, over one million votes in its popular 1World Poller engagement application, and exceeding 400,000 end-user memberships to its opinion and social research service. The 1World service is also being used in over 200 countries today.

To facilitate its growing list of customers and soon-to-be announced partnerships, 1World is expanding internationally. The 1World Development Center, staffed already in Europe with part of the company’s technical team, is being expanded and a new office has been opened in Setubal, Portugal, which will also be the regional business development and sales office for 1World. The 1World EU Office will handle the entire EMEA (Europe-Middle East-Africa) region for sales and business activities.

In Asia, 1World is working with Defta Partners, a recent investor in 1World, to enter the Japanese market. In China, 1World recently became a portfolio company of Hanhai Investment, and will be leveraging this new relationship to enter the Chinese market later this year. 1World will have offices and operations within and among the respective eco-systems of these partners to serve the Asian region.

Defta Partners and Hanhai Investment are joining 1World’s previous financial backers; this includes, beyond the founders, a dozen prominent Silicon Valley early stage investors, such as Keiretsu Forum and Fifth Era. 1World was started in 2011 in San Jose, CA, began east coast USA operations last year, and is now formally expanding throughout Europe and Asia with local presences.

1World also today announced that it was named a Global 100 Companies to Watch. This is an annual landscape survey by AlwaysOn, winners considered top among its peers and with game-changing approaches that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. 1World was specifically selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. The winners were selected from among many hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.

1World and the AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn’s tenth annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 29th and 30th, 2014. 1World will be at the event demonstrating its solution on July 29th and Mr. Fedosseev will address the entire audience that day as well.

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.

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...
