Another Demonstration of my IoT Workflow Software

Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action.  In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff!

Avaya CPaaS – A Communications Platform for Today and Tomorrow

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now… Joni Mitchell It wasn’t that long ago that ownership was everything.   I bought CDs for music and DVDs for movies.  I went to bookstores for the hottest summer reading.  I filled a filing cabinet drawer with disks to install TurboTax, Photoshop, Windows and Mac operating systems, and […]

And the winner is…

I was very excited to see that one of the winners at the Enterprise Connect TADHack-mini used my Zang IoT software!  That’s pretty darn cool!

Dragging and Dropping Your Way to IoT Greatness

Do you have a great idea for an IoT application, but don’t know the first thing about programming and have no interest in learning a programming language?  The Avaya Breeze and Zang drag-and-drop workflow designer tools allow you to visualize your idea and with a few mouse clicks, go from concept to a powerful, enterprise-grade […]

IoT in the Cloud

From Bits and Bytes to Drag and Drop: The Zang Workflow Designer

It was almost exactly one year ago that I first wrote about Zang in my article, Zang from the Inside Out.  While I was impressed with its comprehensive and innovative web services interfaces, I’ve moved beyond that.  These days I want the power of those web services, but I’ve been spoiled by the drag-and-drop programming […]

Teaching Mom About PaaS

Here’s a little something I posted on TalkingPointz. Despite the fact that I wasn’t born in Missouri, I am very much a “show me” kind of a guy. Abstract technology only excites me so much and I need to touch, see, or hear something before I’m convinced it truly is a better mousetrap. In a […]

Zang From the Inside Out

When I was a kid growing up in the 1960’s, the big question of the day was “Mary Ann or Ginger?”  Being the fairly wholesome, innocent child that I was, my answer was always the same – Mary Ann.  Ginger certainly had her appeal (which grew as I got older), but Mary Ann was the […]
