Furman Transformation Emerges as First "Growth Agency" in the Technology Sector

WELLINGTON, Fla., Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Furman Transformation is an emerging growth hacking agency focused on assisting companies in the technology sector to realize their full potential and achieve sustainable growth. The agency offers business consultation and workshops covering key aspects of strategy, planning and problem-solving, with a laser beam focus on accelerating growth and value.

An overwhelming amount of today’s business is powered by computing technology. Almost 55 per cent of large companies in the technology sector use sales technology to manage customer relationships. In the age of web 2.0, marketing innovation has become a discipline in itself, taught in universities and brainstormed at laboratories.

Marketing divisions within technology companies are leveraging automation and data science to identify key customer moments, capture qualified leads, and design creative social media campaigns. Across sales and marketing, a key strategic priority is to always remain customer-centric. They have also come to realize that the best customer advocacy is a sum of different parts: it is driven by technology but requires the commitment and determination of people and teams to achieve the customer-first mission.

In other words, opportunities and challenges exist side by side, requiring a 360-degree approach enabling companies to build skilled sales teams and effective processes, and invest in the right sales technologies. There are more choices than ever before and companies are under stress to take decisions that generate the returns they aspire to and put them on the path to growth and digital transformation.

Furman Transformation LLC is the first growth agency assisting companies in the technology sector to optimize operations before growth happens and envision and implement growth plans. The agency counts companies in the information technology, artificial intelligence (AI), medical, nanotechnology, neuroscience, biotechnology, robotics, and energy sectors/industries among its clients.

The agency offers business consulting services encompassing sales, marketing, and operational growth. From goal setting and operational analysis to creating solid sales and marketing foundations, Furman Transformation addresses all aspects of running a company’s core functions and processes. The agency also holds workshops to train teams in areas of sales and account management. The business workshops aim to inspire attendees to break out of their comfort zone and learn new ideas and approaches that make them more effective at what they do. Attendees also view the workshops as a chance to reflect on important topics and conduct self-assessments to take ownership of improvements.

Founder Jonathan Furman is a former digital media and account management executive who brings his leadership expertise and multi-disciplinary acumen to Furman Transformation’s operations. Jonathan believes that companies are embracing innovation, opening up to new business models, leveraging new sales channels, and becoming more flexible in their work strategies, creating a confluence of technology and people centricity that generates value-driven growth. “We are the technology sector’s first growth engine,” he explained. “We coach, mentor and train to help companies set up robust operations before they can actually grow, and both adapt and stay profitable in a disruptive industry.”

Internet of Medical Things Shakes Up the Development of Medical Devices with Analytics and Cloud

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — As patients are increasingly asserting their right to choose the therapy that best suits them, demand for better access to their medical data is intensifying. The shift in the balance of power during decision making is compelling healthcare providers to find more efficient ways of extracting meaningful information from medical records to present to patients. This has heightened the need for analytics to process the voluminous data produced by advanced, connected and smarter patient monitoring devices, which, consecutively, has turned the spotlight on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Meaningful insights accrued from the range of connected medical devices and monitoring tools can help patients make lifestyle changes or better manage an existing disease, and simultaneously aid clinicians by facilitating decision making.

“Sharing of medical data or transmission of medical data through the cloud is a recent trend and is gaining traction, even in developing nations, with the healthcare industry becoming digitized,” observed Frost & Sullivan TechVision Industry Analyst Bhargav Rajan. “IoMT will accelerate the development of advanced medical devices that can seamlessly transfer structured information to electronic health records more efficiently than existing technologies.”

Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) Revolutionizing Healthcare is part of Frost & Sullivan’s TechVision (Medical Devices & Imaging) Growth Partnership Subscription. IoMT is an amalgamation of medical devices and applications that can connect to healthcare IT systems using networking technologies. The analysis covers product-centric and process-centric functions of the technology.

To access more information on this analysis, please click here.

While the benefits are many, IoMT has inherent IT security vulnerabilities that expose highly sensitive data to cyber and phishing attacks. Technologists are attempting to resolve this issue by employing blockchain technology, which enables a highly secure, decentralized framework for data sharing. Using a combination of artificial intelligence and blockchain technology, companies can keep an audit trail of all transactions. Predictive modeling used in combination with big data analytics can reduce healthcare costs and improve patient experiences and outcomes.

“Blockchain technology in IoMT will allow patient records to be automatically fed with real-time data of the patients, which will subsequently be sent to healthcare providers over a secure network through a web-enabled platform,” noted Rajan. “Through this process, personalized care can be delivered to a patient in a remote location.”

About TechVision

Frost & Sullivan’s global TechVision practice is focused on innovation, disruption and convergence, and provides a variety of technology-based alerts, newsletters and research services as well as growth consulting services. Its premier offering, the TechVision program, identifies and evaluates the most valuable emerging and disruptive technologies enabling products with near-term potential.

CableClix Leap-frogs Cable-cutting Hardware to Deliver Groundbreaking Software Solution

LOS ANGELES, August 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

CableClix (USA), Inc. (OTCPK: CCLX), the publicly traded company that combines big data with artificial intelligence to perfect the personalization of TV content, was established in 2013 to drastically improve the cable-cutting offer whilst gathering key data on viewing habits. At that time, hardware logistics were a huge hurdle to delivering quality online TV, especially to wireless ISPs, and thus CableClix prioritized that solution. Since then, hardware offerings have proliferated, freeing CableClix to focus its resources on what audiences themselves are asking for: access to content, and enhanced usability.

CableClix’s research released in Q1 revealed that online viewers were frustrated with key software issues around user experience: too many separate apps, too many choices, and confusing interfaces. CableClix’s app introduces key solutions to solve these pain points, by continuously introducing new content from across a number of providers onto a single platform, based on an ever-more intelligent personalization engine. Unlike any other TV software platform, CableClix presents a new machine-learning powered lean-back experience easing users’ discovery of new content.

Cauri Jaye, Chief Product Officer at CableClix, said, “Viewers are savvy users now and demand more from their online TV viewing experience. They’re no longer willing to commit to hardware solutions if the software that comes with it doesn’t meet their needs, or quickly becomes obsolete. CableClix’s focus on software enables us to gain those key user insights from user habits – a core objective of the business – in a far more fluid and adaptable way than hardware could.”

CableClix’s app is already being alpha tested by end users, and will launch first on AppleTV (currently 23 million US users), the most developer and marketing-friendly environment to trial new apps. With the insights gained from this user-group, twinned with the larger number of content partners recruited throughout this soft launch, CableClix will then widen its availability to the larger platforms, including market-dominant Roku (39 million users) and Google Chromecast (37 million users).

CableClix launches the entirely personalized online TV lean-back experience to a discrete beta test group in the fall. Join the waitlist at cableclix.com/itspersonal .

About CableClix (USA), Inc.
CableClix delivers innovative hardware and software ‘cord cutting’ solutions for the global online TV streaming market. CableClix was formed in 2013 to be a leading provider of high-definition streaming television, including local network content, directly to the local consumer, on nearly any device, at any time.
