Ed Macnair, CEO of SaaSID, commented, "We are extremely excited to have been nominated in two categories of the Tech Trailblazer Awards. Our technology solves a real problem faced by CIOs who are trying to manage web applications and the influx of personal computing devices into the enterprise and it has already caught the attention of the judging panel, which includes some notable names from the technology and investment worlds. Our participation in the Tech Trailblazer Awards has provided us with a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of our innovation with CIOs of companies worldwide. Tech Trailblazer Awards is a great initiative that really supports up and coming companies in the technology sector. I'd like to thank everyone who adds their vote."

SaaSID's technology, Cloud Application Manager, facilitates organisations' use of cloud-based applications by authenticating employees through the browser, then managing and auditing their use of applications. Cloud Application Manager seamlessly integrates with existing directories, including Active Directory, LDAP and OpenID. The browser-based technology can perform policy-based redaction of sensitive information presented by web applications, or restrict features within web pages according to a user's role, regardless of the device they are using. This extends enterprise security policies to the cloud and helps organisations to address the governance, risk and compliance issues associated with web application use and the implementation of BYOD initiatives.

SaaSID has been shortlisted as a Cloud Trailblazer and a Security Trailblazer in the 2012 Tech Trailblazers Awards. Votes can be added by following the links below:

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. SendGrid sends up to half a billion emails a day for customers such as Pinterest and GitHub. All this email adds up to more text than produced in the entire twitterverse.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at 15th Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, Vice President, Product Strategy of LogMeIn's Xively IoT Platform, will show you how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
