techhq | May 07, 2020

Cloud computing has served as a lifeline in the business disruption caused by the pandemic. While interest, and investment, in cloud has been surging for years now, we can expect a further turbo injection as a direct result of the current climate. Billions of private and business users now take advantage of this on-demand technology – 78 percent of companies were already using public or private cloud in 2019, according to IDC data. It’s changed the way people communicate, manage data and do business, and has made advanced capabilities like data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence accessible to really any company that wants them.

Syxsense | August 26, 2021

Syxsense, a global leader in IT and security management solutions, announced today the ability to automatically respond to critical IT infrastructure disruptions. Syxsense adds customizable workflow status checks and controls for services, databases, websites, events, and servers. Within the workflow, monitor that there are no data disruptions, alert that your website is non-responsive, restart and repair windows services and events. Use the web monitor action to watch for and respond to website outages to help guarantee that a customer's experience, from first click to purchase, is a positive one. Set downtime checks as frequently as every 30 seconds, if your site is non-responsive you will immediately receive notification. Completely customizable, workflows can automate the restart of necessary services, responding and fixing the problem with no manual intervention and limited downtime. With a variety of web action checks (delete, get, head, post, put, trace), interact with any web service or web API for transaction monitoring and avoid technical outages at the point of purchase. Checks run from any number of locations for worldwide redundancy, know that customers from Asia to Europe are getting similar response times. Syxsense also extends its' automation workflow library with logic action pairs to verify uptime and reboot servers; check the state of windows events and services then start or stop them, and finally monitor the responsiveness of SQL databases to initiate repair.

The Syxsense Cortext workflow is able to disable or enable a specific windows feature, saving time and securing the environment. Syxsense Cortex is a visual drag and drop designer that easily automates complex actions directly on the endpoint, only available in Syxsense Secure.

He has decades of experience working in the technology, media, sports, and finance industries around the world, as well as serving on the boards of several private and public firms. In addition, Yonathan Lapchik, who has been acting as InfiniteWorld's CEO and is a Co-Founder of the Company, will continue to work with the company as a Senior Advisor to the CEO and as the CEO of InfiniteWorld's Web 3.0 partner, SUKU. "I am excited and honored to be joining InfiniteWorld at this inflection point in the Company's development and at the very early days of what we believe to be a rapidly opening market for all elements of the Metaverse and Web 3.0, including digital asset creation, infrastructure, and engagement. InfiniteWorld has capabilities that I believe are well-positioned at the intersection of digital content, content creators large and small, communities of users and consumers, and next generation engagement and marketing strategies for brands around the world. I look forward to a successful business combination with Aries and our ability to grow and develop as one of the first pure-play Metaverse companies in the public markets" stated Mr. Allen. Mr. Lapchik stated, "InfiniteWorld has experienced strong momentum this year, which puts us in a position to bring on Brad Allen, a seasoned sports, media and technology executive, to take the company to the next level of growth. It's a bittersweet moment for me but we have always anticipated bringing on new leadership for this phase. Serving as CEO of both InfiniteWorld and SUKU at the same time has been my true pleasure and I believe has been beneficial for both companies. Brad can now help InfiniteWorld transition into its next stage as a public entity. This will allow me to devote more energy to my passion for decentralization through SUKU, which I believe will help deepen InfiniteWorld's integration with other decentralized Web 3.0 ecosystems and communities." All critical workstreams linked to the business combination and InfiniteWorld becoming a public company later this year are being actively worked on by InfiniteWorld and Aries. As a result, the transaction can be completed with no minimum cash requirement.

UConn | April 20, 2021

The University of Connecticut (UConn) and AT&T* are collaborating on the Stamford campus to advance entrepreneurship, innovation, and data science by using AT&T 5G+ millimeter wave and Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) technologies. The AT&T 5G+ network will allow the university to advance research initiatives that will investigate new use cases and increase entrepreneurial activity. AT&T's partnership with UConn Stamford, with the assistance of CTNext and StamfordNext, will add 5G capabilities to bolster the UConn Stamford Data Science Initiative, which includes the Stamford Start-up Studio, the UConn Technology Incubation Program (TIP Digital) in Stamford, and the work of a soon-to-be recruited a team of data science research faculty. AT&T and UConn anticipate that the latest resources on the Stamford campus will connect business experience with student and faculty innovation, paving the way for new job opportunities and cutting-edge research. AT&T's 5G infrastructure will provide UConn Stamford with cellular high-speed access. MEC computing is a wireless network infrastructure that, when combined with 5G+, enables near real-time, ultra-high bandwidth, and ultra-low latency connectivity to wireless mobile applications. Through a private network, 5G and MEC will help connect students, faculty, and university partners. In other words, the technology would enable UConn Stamford to provide advanced experiences and results to students, teachers, and research groups without requiring data to travel to distant data centers. The addition of AT&T's 5G+ mmWave service will boost and extend Connecticut's innovation ecosystem, enhancing UConn Stamford's capacity to support the state, city, and university. Academic programs and student life should benefit as well, and the socioeconomic effect of this growth should benefit University partners and stakeholders in a meaningful manner. AT&T and UConn anticipate that the new 5G lab will enable a wide set of technical tools and innovations that will allow the university to extend its work in entrepreneurship and data science. AT&T 5G+-enabled UConn use cases will include: Entrepreneurship and Innovation Co-op – This program will teach aspiring entrepreneurs how to develop early-stage innovations and technologies for the real estate and construction industries. The 5G technology will assist student entrepreneurs in unleashing their innovation and transforming business operations. Besides, the initiative assists women and minority-owned business innovators by connecting and developing a network of partnerships within the university and throughout the state. Data Science Tech Incubator – 5G will assist TIP Digital startups in studying and assessing data more quickly and effectively. Real-time processing of patient data so that treatment can be delivered more quickly, as well as better management of extreme weather so that service providers can adapt to power outages more quickly, are examples of use cases. Access to 5G technologies enables TIP Digital firms to evolve more quickly and draw top talent to the field. Faculty Fellows in Data Science – 5G can be used for analytics and data visualization research in engineering, liberal arts, fine arts, and industry. These data science faculty fellows will collaborate with industry partners to conduct cutting-edge research with the potential for commercialization. UConn's commitment to Stamford and the business community is accompanied by this initiative. When the lab opens, UConn anticipates partnering with regional companies to expand student activities and opportunities.
