GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (GWIV) And The Rising Cloud

|Includes: GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (INLX)

Although headlines heralding the end of the personal computer can rightfully be considered overly dramatic, the rapid ascent of cloud processing gives some legitimacy to visions of a world where the devices we physically touch are little more than powerful front-ends. Accelerating communications technology has made it all possible, but what is there about cloud processing that makes it desirable? GlobalWise Investments, an Ohio based company that has embraced and helped drive cloud technology for its own unique business applications, provides some real life examples of what cloud processing means, both to vendors and the customers they serve.

GlobalWise, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Intellinetics, provides both public and private organizations a way to deal with what is becoming a growing and costly problem, the necessary storage and access of thousands, sometimes millions, of daily documents. It's not unusual for a company or government agency to have up to 85% of their critical content trapped as unstructured data, making it difficult, sometimes impossible, to find when it is needed. In some cases the information is effectively lost, existing somewhere within the organization, but requiring simply too much time to be worth locating.

GlobalWise and Intellinetics are using cloud processing, together with advanced ECM (Enterprise Content Management) technology, to turn a common problem into an operational advantage. Their Intellivue system is designed to ensure that documents and records of every kind are able to flow freely, and be accessible when and where they are needed. Clients can easily manage the content of every scanned or digitized document, whether text, spreadsheets, emails, photographs, audio, or video files.

But cloud processing adds a new dimension to this already important beneficial offering. Through the careful integration of cloud processing and security technologies, GlobalWise clients can now access virtually any required corporate files from any online device, including smartphones, from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The company has named it "Knowledge In Motion," a way of providing every authorized member of the team with an unparalleled link to the organization, a new platform for projecting corporate information resources any time and any place.
