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.

"We've discovered that after shows 80% if leads that people get, 80% of the conversations end up on the show floor, meaning people forget about it, people forget who they talk to, people forget that there are actual business opportunities to be had here so we try to help out and keep the conversations going," explained Jeff Mesnik, Founder and President of ContentMX, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

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.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.
