Swipp to Unlock the Wisdom of the World

Announces Global Social Intelligence Platform, Commercial and Consumer Apps

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Swipp launches the world's first social intelligence platform with applications designed to take every day social expressions and turn them into a new type of living, social data. With Swipp, people can get rich information about any topic in the world, learning and participating in the conversation while tracking what the world thinks about that topic in real-time.

Swipp believes that the collective knowledge of the social graph is of extreme value as it represents what everyone is thinking at any particular time. When collected, aggregated and displayed, that information creates a better-informed world.

"For the first time in human history, we have over a billion people connected to each other, which has produced an enormous amount of data but very little insight," said Don Thorson, CEO and co-founder of Swipp.

"Our goal at Swipp is to take all the ideas, thoughts and comments that are currently being lost and bring them together in meaningful new ways that can be used by people, businesses and developers alike."

Swipp For People

Swipp has iPhone, web and mobile web apps that let people say what they think about something and instantly find out what the rest of the world thinks about that same topic. But beyond that -- and more importantly -- Swipp is a social intelligence platform that moves the act of sharing your thoughts and ideas through social media from a flat, linear experience to a deep, knowledge-centric experience fueled by users from all over the world.

Swipp's consumer applications let you search among millions of topics, speak your mind and simply "swipp it." Your comments enter a social stream around that topic so you can see what other people say, how they're reacting to a topic, and even photos that they're uploading around that topic. The data is available in real-time as well as over time, so you can see how people swipped at any point. You can also filter the information by friends, location, age and gender.

Swipp For Businesses

Swipp is also launching Swipp Plus, which brings the global social conversation directly to any website or application. Instead of sending visitors out to secondary platforms, businesses gather information locally so reaction to their content or products remain on their website.

Swipp Plus widgets bring businesses added content and customer engagement by letting visitors view the "living information" while also letting them join the conversation around the specified topic. The Swipp platform pulls in data from all Swipp sources, resulting in a global, aggregated view of what the world thinks of their brand, product or content.

Swipp For Developers

Swipp is architected with an open API that will enable developers to integrate social intelligence directly into their existing products or create entirely new applications on their own -- unlocking a new layer of insight while adding immediate value to their customers. All current Swipp products are built on this architecture, and third party developers will be able to request access to the APIs later in the year.

The Global Nature of Swipp

Social media has no borders, so neither does Swipp. At launch, the app and platform will be available in five languages: English, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. The Swipp app is pre-populated with millions of terms, which will be reconciled across the languages to allow for a real global experience, and an aggregated global view off that topic.

To make sure that the experience is also authentically local, Swipp has engaged an on-the-ground network of social ambassadors in the US, UK, Germany, Brazil, Spain, Portugal and France who will ensure that local topics and trends are accurately represented.

How to get Swipp

Swipp is available for the iPhone and is also available as a rich web-based experience. You can download the iPhone app from the Apple App Store or go to www.swipp.com to start swipping from your computer.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
