La red CityNext se basa en una red de soluciones basadas en la nube, para administrar datos y aplicaciones así como para gestionar y automatizar procesos administrativos, con el objetivo de brindar a los ciudadanos una plataforma global que le permita desenvolverse en sistemas tanto a nivle corporativo como móviles y de servicios al consumidor.

Todo esto está apoyado en una estructura global de más de 400 mil expertos en tecnología de todo el mundo que brindan soporte en todos los niveles. Uno de los casos de éxito iniciales, antes de oficializar el ingreso de Buenos Aires al proyecto, es el de la empresa Accendo, que en colaboración con el Gobierno de la Ciudad, desarrollaron el Centro de Atención al Inversor (CAI), una herramienta para asesorar y apoyar la reubicación de empresas para optimizar su rendimiento. Gracias al CAI, la ciudad logró reducir en un 65% el tiempo de gestión administrativa que necesitaba una empresa para realizar los trámites de relocalización.

Buenos Aires se suma a la lista de ciudades que integran la iniciativa CityNext junto a Auckland (Nueva Zelanda), Barcelona (España), Provincia de Hainan, Zhengshou (China), Hamburgo (Alemania), Manchester (Inglaterra), Moscú (Rusia) y Filadelfia (Estados Unidos).

Dos amigos crearon una app para que conseguir un vehículo no sea una odisea.

 “¡Taxi!” El clásico grito a mano levantada en las calles porteñas corre riesgo de entrar en la lista de costumbres argentinas en desuso por la irrupción de las nuevas tecnologías. A la proliferación de servicios de radio-llamada, ahora, aparecen nuevas formas de pedir un taxi en Buenos Aires. Conocedor de la idiosincrasia del mundo negro y amarillo por ser tercera generación de una familia vinculada al negocio de los taxis, Matías Biglieri (28) creó, junto a Federico Scaduto (28), Dinerotaxi.com, una aplicación para smartphones a la que presentan como “la evolución del sistema de radio taxi”.

“Sólo se necesita bajar la aplicación para que, de manera rápida y segura, enviemos el taxi al lugar donde uno está. A través de un celular o smartphone, localizamos la ubicación del usuario y le mandamos el taxi más cercano”, explican los emprendedores, ambos, expertos en sistemas y desarrollo de software, que se conocieron trabajando en Telecom. “Es fácil: en dos clicks, uno tiene un auto esperándolo. Y, además, le mandamos la información del chofer y del móvil”, agregan.

Are You a Lumberjack or a Tree Hugger?

It’s hard to argue because everyone will have a different viewpoint depending upon where they are looking at the situation, but they both have an important role to play. The really good stuff happens when organisations like Greenpeace, Make Trade Fair or FSC come into play because they are the glue that sticks both sides together.

Social media often bridges the gap between the commercial arm of the business and customer service or marketing.  It’s a good place to be because it gives you the freedom and creativity to add value and contribute across the company, but it’s also hard to keep your integrity when you have split priorities.

Quality Athletic Websites
By Brady Nord | Published August 27th, 2010 in Inspiration

There are not many aspects in life that can bridge gaps between religion, race, and nationality. Although, one that has proven time and time again is sport. There is not a city across the world that you can visit without seeing a team jersey or logo somewhere! Because of this, many sports clubs and teams have a unique challenge of designing their web presence to appeal to an international arena more so then the rest of us. I have assembled what I would consider out of the box and quality athletic based websites.

Whether you love or hate the brand or team, I hope you would agree that these companies are standing out in comparison to what the rest of the field is doing.

19 Reasons Why I Love Manchester City

Manchester City Understand Social Media

“I think this is due to how the club perceives itself within the footballing world. Some clubs may see themselves simply as a brand that exists separately from the day-to-day lives of their supporters and because there are no real direct revenue stream, do not see the value of social media.

For various reasons, others may feel that social media is not a worthwhile endeavour for them and somewhat of a minefield that is best steered clear of. At City we’re proud of the way that the club is able to reach out to supporters and we’re proud of the way the fans have reacted and embraced what we’re trying to do.

We’re also keen to ensure that the club remains at the forefront of new developments in the field of social media whilst it is imperative that the club’s soul, the very reason why people fall in love with Manchester City, is retained”.
