Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. (“Skkynet” or “the Company”) (OTC.BB:SKKY), a global leader in real-time cloud information systems is pleased to announce the launch of Skkynet VINE™ real-time data middleware for connecting Excel spreadsheets in real time. Traders, brokers, and financial analysts can now benefit from having analytics for any incoming data feed displayed and updated immediately, as the data arrives. A free demo version can be downloaded at: www.skkynet.com/vine.
“Every trader has Excel on his desktop,” said Mr. Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet, “but until now there was no efficient and cost-effective way to network the data in and out of spreadsheets in real time. This technology can significantly enhance the trading process.”
The real-time data transmission technology used in Skkynet VINE is the same as is used in the Skkynet Secure Cloud Service, which has been attracting interest in the investment community, and will be discussed in Skkynet’s presentation at the 3rd Annual Marcum MicroCap Conference on May 29th in New York City at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
At its core, Skkynet VINE is an industrial system, based on 19 years of experience in real-time data collection, integration, and distribution for mission-critical process control data. The result is a powerful real-time middleware product in a tiny package that can transfer tens of thousands of data changes per second between Excel spreadsheets across a LAN, WAN, or the Internet.
“We set up a small system with one of our traders in New York and in 15 minutes we got an email back saying he thought it was amazing,” said the manager of a pilot project team at Breakwater Trading. “The update cycle between New York, Chicago and back to New York was reduced from around a minute with our old Linux system, to less than a second using Skkynet VINE.”
Skkynet VINE’s unique, non-intrusive, firewall-friendly, low bandwidth and highly scalable solution allows users to not only control data distribution, but also intellectual property. Because it shares only analytical data, not the whole spreadsheet, all computations are secured and only selected results are distributed.

In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...

This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance...
