DreamFace 2.0 Brings Social Networking and Mobile Services to Enterprise Web 2.0 Applications

Open Source Web 2.0 Application Creation Platform Drives Innovation and Efficiency

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/09 -- WEB 2.0 EXPO -- DreamFace Interactive, a leader in Web 2.0 application software, today introduced DreamFace 2.0, the latest version of the company's Web 2.0 application platform. DreamFace 2.0 provides a comprehensive open source toolset to build, use, and distribute widget-based enterprise Web 2.0 applications and mashups, including Web sites, personal start pages, business analytics dashboards, interactive and social mashups, enterprise/community social networks, and enterprise applications. Major new features in version 2.0 include an enhanced widget platform, a widget-based social networking framework, and integrated mobile services. DreamFace community members will be the first to receive the new software. Join the community by registering at www.dreamface.org.

DreamFace Widget Platform

DreamFace empowers developers to create Web 2.0 applications from diverse information sources and technologies, inside and outside the enterprise. The DreamFace Widget Library provides pre-built widgets that may be customized by developers. Business users can personalize their Web 2.0 applications by combining these widgets, customizing them, and creating interactions between them using the DreamFace Interaction Editor.

DreamFace widgets are easily integrated with existing enterprise infrastructures and can seamlessly embed Ajax, Flex, and any other Web technology that can be displayed in a browser (including other frameworks' widgets and gadgets). DreamFace widgets or widget-based applications can run anywhere, including on the desktop, on Web sites, on Web platforms, such as Facebook, SalesForce, or MySpace, and on mobile devices, such as iPhones and Android phones.

DreamFace Social Networking Framework

Each DreamFace user has a user profile that ensures authentication and privacy, manages preferences, and enables single sign-on. The DreamFace platform is open, allowing enterprises to link DreamFace profile management functionalities with existing enterprise identity management systems, such as LDAP, to ensure compliance with established corporate authentication and security policies.

Like consumer social networking platforms, DreamFace enables users to find and link with other users and to define groups of users. Each user has a "Wall" that lists contacts' activities and other messages. DreamFace also supports other powerful Web 2.0 activities, such as the tagging, rating, searching, and sharing of widgets and applications.

Uniquely, the DreamFace platform enables users to group user-defined digital assets, such as documents, photos, videos, links and even widgets or applications, into asset categories and to subscribe to other users' or groups' categories. For example, members of a working team could subscribe to the group's collection of documents or photos, ensuring that each team member is always working with the latest and most complete set of materials.

"Web 2.0 technologies, especially social networking technologies, are causing the traditional corporate portal to evolve rapidly and dramatically," said Olivier Poupeney, co-founder and chief executive officer, DreamFace Interactive. "DreamFace 2.0 provides enterprises with an open and scalable platform that significantly reduces development cost and time to deployment of 'built-for-change' enterprise Web 2.0 applications and that drives network effects in the enterprise to amplify collective intelligence."

"We chose DreamFace 1.0 for its incomparable Web 2.0 framework," said Olivier Picciotto, Twinsoft, a partner that uses DreamFace as a front-end to its Convertigo enterprise mashup toolset. "Now, DreamFace 2.0 brings us social networking, allowing easy interaction between people and information."

DreamFace Mobile Services

DreamFace 2.0 provides live broadcasting or publishing to mobile devices, providing faster access to critical or dynamically changing information. Users receiving these alerts can interact with their DreamFace widgets and applications directly from their mobile devices. The platform also provides a mobile device micro payment infrastructure. DreamFace leverages the Sybase 365 mobile messaging platform for SMS, MMS, and micro payments.

Pricing and Availability

DreamFace 2.0 will be available under a dual-license open source model that is based on GPL 3.0. DreamFace 2.0 Beta 1, including the enhanced widget platform and the new mobile services features, will be available this month. DreamFace 2.0 Beta 2, including the social networking framework, will be available next month. DreamFace community members will be notified on the date the software is available.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
