Join fellow technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors for the NY Enterprise Technology Meetup's (NYETM) March meetup on Tuesday 3/12/13 from 6:45pm-9:00pm!
The format of the event this month will feature Irish-themed enterprise tech demos and a fireside chat with VC Ed Sim. There will be networking before/after.
Demos will be from the following Irish companies:
- DataHug works by using information you already have - communication data coming in and out of the business daily. With this Datahug builds up a dynamic database of company-wide connections and uses analytics to show who knows who. It digs deeper to provide insights into the connections showing “how well they know them”.
- Waratek has developed the first Java Virtual Machine (JVM) specifically designed for cloud computing and Java-as-a-Service (JaaS). It allows Java code to run in a cloud environment without the need for code change. Its utility chargeback statistics enable a multitenant ‘pay exactly what you consume’ model for individual applications.
- Preact is the first intelligent support and account management tool that integrates seamlessly into your existing workflow to accelerate and improve every interaction you have with your customers. By leveraging powerful scientific analysis of customer actions across web, mobile and email, Preact identifies customers who are likely to churn, optimizes the timing and content of lifecycle messaging, and helps internal teams recognize high-value customers who could benefit from proactive engagement.
We'll also have a fireside chat with VC Ed Sim.
