Pneuron Executive Appointments Indicative of Growth in Prescriptive Business Solutions Market

With two new leaders on board to engage the business and marketing strategy, Pneuron Corporation (www.pneuron.com) is further defining a ripe category of market and business challenges not serviced effectively by both traditional solutions and new “Big Data” investments.

Pneuron Corporation offers a completely new way for enterprises to realize business competitiveness, operational effectiveness and risk and regulatory transparency. The company developed a patent pending technology that accelerates the creation, deployment, and management of new products, analytics, applications and operating models. This gives Pneuron’s Financial Services, Insurance and Healthcare customers the unique ability to integrate, connect, configure and maintain a huge category of enterprise solutions without the inefficiencies that result from traditional data and systems integration.

Moran and Seidel plan to evangelize and strategize using the company’s “Prescriptive Business Solutions” and Pneuron Platform™ in their work with this untapped segment of Fortune 5000 firms – solving business problems and challenges for less than 50% of the time, cost and risk of any other solution in the market.

“As with all members of our team we’ve been careful to choose just the right personalities and experience to fit within our organization,” said Simon Moss, CEO. “Monica and Heather interact with our team, our investment partners and our valued customers, so they’re an expansion of who we are as a company. They are the faces and voices of Pneuron – creative, proven, skilled leaders that align to the incredible value we are bringing our customers.” (http://www.pneuron.com/about.html)

As the Chief Financial Officer for Pneuron, Heather Moran provides oversight and leadership of all financial functions for the company. With over 18 years of financial and operational management experience in both the public and private sectors, she brings tremendous expertise in financial analysis, enhanced financial controls and risk mitigation, software revenue recognition, mergers and acquisition due diligence/ integration and human resource management.

Moran most recently served as an executive consultant to McKesson Provider Technologies. Prior to McKesson, Heather was the Director of Finance at RedPrairie and Fiserv, managing global financial operations. Previously, she served as Finance Manager at MedQuist and as a Senior Staffing Consultant at Acsys, Inc., supplying recruiting services to Fortune 500 Companies in the Atlanta market. Heather began her career as an auditor at Arthur Andersen.

Monica C. Seidel brings over 20 years of agency and corporate communications experience to her role as Chief Marketing Officer at Pneuron. She has worked with high-profile executives at MasterCard International, IBM and Microsoft to gain insight into their global planning, branding and positioning. She brings the ability to grow mind share through aggressive thought leadership programs that challenge the market and lead to transformational results.

At Pneuron, Monica plans to further enhance demand generation via integrated, multi-channel campaigns that will elevate the company’s brand equity as a disruptive Prescriptive Business Solutions provider. She will foster customer engagement through traditional and social media channels to communicate Pneuron’s unique value proposition, and serve as an added value to the customer at every level.

“As we expand our senior team we are cognizant of how crucial these roles are, and I’m personally convinced that both Heather and Monica bring just the right amount of passion and expertise to help elevate Pneuron to the next level,” said Elizabeth Elkins, COO.

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
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, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
