CLEVELAND, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When TOA Technologies identified the opportunity to provide cloud-based mobile workforce management software to the global field service market, the vision was to provide businesses with a solution to manage their field workforces in real-time using patented predictive analytics and pattern recognition technology. ETAdirect, TOA's flagship solution, is always up-to-date, takes less time to implement and delivers a lower total cost of ownership than any other application of its kind. A noted innovator in the global software-as-a-service community and a leader in the field service management market, TOA Technologies has been recognized as a SaaS Top 250 company on the quarterly list produced by Montclair Advisors for delivering mission critical enterprise solutions in the cloud.
"When we set out to solve the problem of customers waiting without knowing when a product or service would arrive, one thing was clear – we knew we had to deliver mission critical enterprise software in the cloud with flexible solutions that were always on and always future-ready," said Yuval Brisker, co-founder and CEO of TOA Technologies. "This revolutionary approach immediately set TOA apart on two levels – using SaaS as a delivery model for enterprise software to large, complex customers and driving efficiencies through time-based, predictive, pattern-recognition technology."
"With this in mind, we built our customer-centric field service management application natively in the cloud, and delivered it directly through the browser to provide customers with the flexibility to quickly and cost-effectively meet the changing needs of their evolving field service businesses. We are honored to be recognized among the top global SaaS providers as an organization that pioneered the use of SaaS in our market," said Brisker.
According to the current SaaS Top 250 report from Montclair Advisors, the SaaS market is growing at approximately five times the rate of the on-premise software market. The SaaS Top 250 debuted in 2010 and provides a comprehensive view of the leading companies in this dynamic, cloud-based software market. Companies selected for the SaaS Top 250 are leaders in both pure and hybrid SaaS categories globally. The list is comprised of start-ups, as well as notable public SaaS firms such as salesforce.com, Netsuite and Workday.
"We are pleased to recognize TOA Technologies as a SaaS Top 250 company," said Kevin Dobbs, Managing Partner at Montclair Advisors. "As one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in North America, TOA has demonstrated excellence in innovation, growth and entrepreneurship."
TOA Technologies developed its flagship solution, ETAdirect, to overcome the frustrating problem of consumers waiting without knowing when a product or service delivery will happen. ETAdirect leverages time-based measurements and predictive analytics to help service organizations ensure the right worker arrives at the right appointment on-time, every time. An established tech innovator, TOA was the first vendor in its market, field service management, to deliver solutions completely through the cloud. Throughout its history, TOA has evangelized and legitimized cloud as a delivery model for field service management and CRM applications globally.

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.

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.

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.

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...
