LNETM is BACK for 2015-2016 – Join Us!

Join fellow technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors for the September London Enterprise Technology Meetup (LNETM) on Monday 28th September 2015 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. 

We will have demo presentations from four highly innovative companies:

• DynamicIQ has created a product called Application Modeller, which is a better approach to software configuration, focused on providing an integrated configuration environment with a resilient/scalable engine and other helpful tools to make IT teams more effective.

• Illumio provides an Adaptive Security Platform (ASP) that is completely independent of underlying infrastructure and delivers visibility and control over workloads running in any data center or cloud environment. It computes security policies and ensures they are provisioned accurately by understanding and continuously adapting to changes in the infrastructure and applications.

• Move Guides brings together all the fragmented pieces of talent mobility management in a single technology platform, making it easy for both employees and companies to manage moves. Their Talent Mobility Cloud is easy to use by anyone in a company, integrating with core IT systems and supporting all aspects of mobility – including the employee move, integrated payments, vendors, and automated workflows/reporting.

• Demo Four – TBC

We plan to continue piloting Glisser at the September Meetup, as it has great potential to enhance the user experience at LNETM events. If you have any feedback on the product from July’s event, please drop me a line.

This Meetup is FREE for all LSE IS Alumni and Current Students. Contact Ian at  ian@lnetm.com , Charles at cwahab@alumni.lse.ac.uk , or Mariya at mariyad@gmail.com  so they can add you to the attendee list.

January Enterprise Tech Meetup – Kickstart 2014!

After the holiday break, the London Enterprise Tech Meetup in collaboration with LISA resumes in 2014 with an exciting agenda. So join fellow technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors on Monday 13th January from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at LSE Campus.

The list of demo presenters includes:

  • LogScape provides big data analytics software for real-time system monitoring and root cause analysis. Logscape dashboards and searches help visualize and correlate events across disparate infrastructure, and mine and search structured and unstructured data.
  • Ontology Systems applies the power, simplicity and speed of search to business applications across the enterprise, by using a semantic model, powered by innovative graph storage technology, to provide search-engine access to fragmented enterprise application data and enterprise documents.
  • Sedicii provides an patented authentication service based on challenge-response called TrustInside. This authenticates people without the need to transmit a password over the web, or for the end service to retain a password for comparison.

Companies will demo for 15 minutes each (with 10 minutes of audience Q&A after each demo), along with networking before/after. The company line up is varied instead of themed, so that there will be something for everyone and also opportunities to learn about different areas.

The meetup is £5.00 and you can register here. It is free for all  LSE Information Systems Alumni. Please contact Charles  or Mariya with your name and graduation year to register.

London Enterprise Tech Meetup Kicks Off

Bankers and Financial Services may grab most of the headlines when it comes to business in London, however London is a capital for many other industries, from the well known such as publishing, fashion and media, to smaller niches such as Hollywood films post-production that is done in the alleys of Soho, to high end tailoring on Saville row. However London is fast becoming a hub for the Technology Industry, spearheaded by Old Street’s “Silicon Roundabout”. However beyond the trendy cafes of Shoreditch, another industry brews, less flash yet more robust: Technology Companies for Enterprises.

Ian Ellis, ADMIS class of ’04 has recently returned to London after a few years in New York City. While in the Big Apple, Ian and his colleague, Jonathan Lehr, felt that there was a disconnect in the Technology sector. An ecosystem that lacked conversations amongst its practitioners, so Ellis and Lehr started the New York Enterprise Technology Meetup. A monthly forum for practitioners, enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and investors to present and discuss Technology for Enterprises, in a similar manner to the world’s largest Tech Meetup, the NY Tech Meetup.

When Ian relocated to London in September 2012, he extended the initiative and created the London Enterprise Technology Meetup, as an opportunity to bring together a community of like-minded people, the entrepreneurs of London and the UK, to talk about the latest trends and innovations in enterprise tech. With backing from the likes of Bloomberg Ventures, the LSE Department of Management and Aimar Capital, the LNETM hosts between three and four companies that vary from the newly founded startups, to the established emerging technology companies.

On October 17th, the LNETM launched at Bloomberg’s London HQ offices by hosting four companies : Amplience , a company that enables merchandisers and marketers to build device-optimised, rich and engaging customer experiences and channels for all channels and devices, Enterproid a company that helps organizations and individuals get the most out of mobile technology and corporate BYOD policies, Evolven, which redefines configuration management and change management with its groundbreaking Change & Configuration Monitoring solution, and Import.io: a data exchange connecting data suppliers with data users, large and small.

LSE’s Hong Kong Theatre, and under the auspices of LSE ISG Professor Carsten Sorensen, played host to the next four monthly LNETM meetups, hosting a suite of companies covering a range of topics and domains: Centrix Software (next generation workspace solutions for mobiles) JClarity (Java performance tuning products), Perspecsys (privacy, residency and security solutions for the cloud), Bromium (micro-virtualization security) , CipherCloud’s (cloud encryption) , iRise (creative iPhone apps design), Nexenta (core storage platform), Channel Mechanics (Channel Enablement as a Service), iMobMedia (mobile solutions).

Some of the more interesting presentations covering the hot topics in Information Systems studies and Innovation, were Digital Reasoning that has developed an automated understanding for Big Data, DataHug an information analysis software that builds up a dynamic database of company-wide connections and uses analytics to show who knows who. Cloud computing was featured in the likes of WaraTek who developed the first Java Virtual Machine (JVM) specifically designed for Cloud computing and Java-as-a-Service (JaaS). Cybersecurity was covered by Threatspike , a cloud service that allows you to build a secure network with built-in protection against malware, hackers and insider threats without requiring installation of any hardware or software.

Each company gets a fifteen minute slot to talk about what they do, and to give a short demo, with another ten minutes for questions and answers. A networking and drinks event follows each meetup, sponsored by the LNETM and Aimar Capital.

April’s LNETM event will feature demo presentations from Digital Shadows, who offer managed security services focused on preventing threat vectors from social media and Mobeelizer, that provides products to help with synchronising back end systems with mobile applications. In addition, there will be a panel discussion about how to grow high quality European enterprise tech companies, lead by partners from leading venture capital firms, Accel Partners, DFJ Esprit, Hoxton Square Ventures and Intel Capital.
