Big Data
Green computing
One of the highlights of the MIT VC Conference every year is the Startup Showdown. Here are three of this year's competitors that might be of interest to CIOs:
  • Jisto Inc. ("Big data, Big computing, Little cost") uses underutilized computing resources you already own, such as employee PCs, to run "distributed apps in a virtual private cloud." And, it claims, it won't impact employee productivity.
  • Polyceed Inc. is developing a class of "smart materials" that won't require an electrical voltage. Smart materials, which change properties when there's a change in the environment (temperature, moisture), are a "true green energy solution," Maha Achour, the startup's CEO, said.
  • Vensy wants to make conference rooms go wireless. Cables will no longer be needed to connect your mobile device to the conference room screen. Instead, all you'll need is Vensy's portable wireless device that hooks directly onto the projector.
