Content Guru | February 02, 2022

Content Guru, a contact center and customer experience technology leader, announced its partnership with FourNet, the award-winning cloud, and managed services provider.

In this new partnership, FourNet’s sixteen years of experience providing communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions to essential public sector organizations will be combined with Content Guru’s best-in-class storm cloud contact center platform. Both public and private sector organizations will benefit from the partnership’s storm-based solutions, enabling mission-critical communications to migrate and scale into evergreen, omnichannel cloud services without sacrificing availability or security.

The synergies between Content Guru and FourNet make us a perfect match, and we share a common purpose of delivering transformative and innovative cloud-based communications at scale. FourNet are experts in providing services to the public sector and, since the pandemic began, our own presence in this vital segment has increased significantly.”

Deputy CEO and Co-Founder of Content Guru, Martin Taylor
 
Content Guru’s storm platform is already revolutionizing the communication capabilities of crucial public sector organizations (that includes NHS Healthy London Partnership, Sheffield City Council, and HUC), streamlining operations and providing a better and improved experience for employees and citizens alike. Storm’s cutting-edge Natural Language Processing (NLP) and sentiment analysis capabilities, for example, can recognize where a call agent has dealt with a particularly tense interaction. Supervisors can utilize this information to ensure their team members get suitable support after such encounters.

“FourNet is delighted to have forged this exciting new partnership with Content Guru. We pride ourselves on offering our customers the best technology, from artificial intelligence and automation to customer experience solutions, and in building long-term, collaborative relationships with the vendors behind them. Partnering with Content Guru was the perfect choice for delivering highly-resilient cloud communications to FourNet’s customers now and in the future,” shared Richard Pennington, CEO of FourNet.

Umbraco and Microsoft extend DXP-based CMSs through Azure Marketplace

Umbraco | June 14, 2022

Umbraco and Microsoft have announced a strategic partnership to broaden the reach of Umbraco's easy-to-use, flexible, and open-source content management system (CMS) built on Microsoft.NET, as well as strengthen its position in the Azure Marketplace, an online store built around Microsoft's Azure cloud platform that contains thousands of IT software applications and services to help build new solutions and manage cloud infrastructures. "Not only is Umbraco one of the most deployed contact management systems on the Microsoft stack, but it is in the top 5 most popular server applications and among the 10 most popular open-source tools available today. Our partnership is based on a common desire to strengthen the spread of Umbraco's CMS, its cloud products, and its position with Azure even further to help companies more easily publish content on their digital platforms," said Morten Thomsen, Partner Director, Microsoft. Umbraco Cloud and Umbraco Heartcore, the company's headless CMS, are available on the Azure marketplace. These technologies are at the heart of Umbraco's composable digital experience platform (DXP), which allows companies to integrate best-of-breed applications or tools with the CMS to create digital experiences that are tailored to their organization's needs rather than deploying a monolithic suite that combines multiple MarTech technologies into a single suite purchased from a single vendor. Instead, the solutions, including Umbraco Cloud, work together via APIs to flexibly offer content and tailored digital experiences to customers as a composable DXP. "Microsoft's secure, stable and scalable Azure cloud, and its extensive online marketplace, will enable even more companies to take advantage of our composable DXP designed around our user-friendly and highly flexible CMS, As a result, they can configure their digital experiences across their digital platforms just the way they want, creating their preferred tech stack without any limitations. We look forward to seeing new success cases enabled through this new partnership—-and go to market together with Microsoft." Jesper Lyngbye, vice president of technology partnerships, Umbraco

TetraScience Launches Revolutionary Scientific Data Cloud, Unlocking Innovation and Value Throughout R&D, Manufacturing, and Quality Control

TetraScience | July 22, 2022

In response to overwhelming customer demand, TetraScience announced today the evolution of its industry leading data cloud to include manufacturing and quality control (QC) data as it seeks to relentlessly replatform and reengineer the world's scientific data in its cloud to radically accelerate and improve scientific outcomes. The Tetra Scientific Data Cloud™, already deployed in 10 of the top 20 pharma companies, helps customers solve previously intractable scientific data problems at scale. BioPharma organizations have attempted to unlock the full value of their scientific data for decades in order to decrease time-to-market, glean scientific insights, and gain operational efficiencies. However, legacy systems, manual processes, incomplete cloud solutions, proprietary data formats, have contributed to inflexible point-to-point integrations to thousands of primary sources and millions of data silos. Having both upstream Research and Development (R&D) and downstream manufacturing and QC data available in the Scientific Data Cloud will yield long sought-after breakthroughs including new process development efficiencies, analytical control strategy, technology transfer acceleration, and reduction of manufacturing risk. The Tetra Scientific Data Cloud systematically solves these problems across the BioPharma ecosystem, accelerating drug delivery while improving quality controls and data integrity. It comprises productized API-based integrations from the Tetra Partner Network, the open, cloud-native Tetra Data Platform which re-engineers raw or primary data into FAIR, harmonized "Tetra Data (™)," and use case-based Scientific Applications enriched by Tetra Data and the Tetra Partner Network. The Tetra Data Platform runs natively on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is available as a SaaS solution in AWS Marketplace. These new classes of scientific applications, built on the Tetra Data Platform in conjunction with Tetra Partners, reduce time-to-value by addressing the challenges of specific scientific lab operations and workflows. Examples include data flow automation in high throughput screening and batch release and stability testing. In addition, for customer use cases in manufacturing and quality control , Tetra GxP ensures the capture of data provenance through a comprehensive audit trail, disaster recovery, control matrices, and software hazard analysis. In addition to its unparalleled cloud capabilities and deep scientific data knowledge, TetraScience's market position as the "Switzerland of Scientific Data" – namely, not seeking to compete with our instrument manufacturer, ELN, and informatics partners - uniquely engenders trust among all industry and adds value to their core offerings. With the world's scientific data trapped in millions of data silos, it's essential that TetraScience remains open and agnostic to data sources and endpoints and focused on one goal - maximizing the value of the data for all relevant stakeholders. "By engineering and automating data flow in late stage biopharma labs, Tetrascience and our Tetra Network Partners have already transformed how safer, better products can be manufactured more efficiently. In fact, meaningful decisions are already being made using Tetra Data-powered data science in QA/QC labs across the globe. Increasingly, Tetra Data (™) is now being requested for reactors, bioanalyzers and other manufacturing equipment for the game-changing therapies of tomorrow," said Spin Wang, TetraScience CTO. "As CRISPR advances our mission to develop transformative gene-based medicines for serious human diseases, it's critical that our advanced analytics are able to leverage as much scientific data as possible coming from a wide range of instruments and informatics systems., TetraScience has brought us value in this area already, and we're very pleased to see the company further evolve their capabilities to better support an expanded set of use cases in QA and manufacturing via the Scientific Data Cloud." Julian Fowler, VP, Head of Information Technology at CRISPR Therapeutics "The Tetra Scientific Data Cloud is a one-of-a-kind, purpose-built industry data cloud optimized to accelerate and improve scientific outcomes. We're closely collaborating with the world's most innovative BioPharma companies, scientific vendors, leading technology companies – such as AWS, and top global systems integrators – such as Deloitte, to fundamentally transform customer outcomes," said Patrick Grady, TetraScience Chairman and CEO. "TetraScience's cloud-native platform, built on AWS, coupled with its partner network and deep scientific knowledge, allows it to securely and compliantly assemble and engineer some of the world's largest scientific data sets," said Lita Sands, Worldwide Life Sciences Strategic Solutions Leader at Amazon Web Services (AWS). TetraScience's data engineering and harmonization at enterprise scale delivers the underlying data that enables advanced analytics and new artificial intelligence-based capabilities. This leads to accelerated and improved outcomes including increased business agility, reduced costs, improved productivity, and faster time-to-market." "We've seen first-hand the pains and challenges biopharmas experience around fragmented, siloed scientific data trapped in legacy systems," said Laks Pernenkil, Principal, Life Sciences at Deloitte. "Digital innovation in the life sciences space is at an inflection point, and what TetraScience is doing to help organizations leverage the full value of scientific data will play an important role in transforming the value stream across drug discovery and development, QA, manufacturing, and supply chain." About TetraScience TetraScience is the Scientific Data Cloud company with a mission to accelerate scientific discovery and improve and extend human life. The Scientific Data Cloud is the only open, cloud-native platform purpose-built for science that connects lab instruments, informatics software, and data apps across the biopharma value chain and delivers the foundation of harmonized, actionable scientific data necessary to transform raw data into accelerated and improved scientific outcomes. Through the Tetra Partner Network, market-leading vendors access the power of our cloud to help customers maximize the value of their data.
