Free-To-Play on the web, iPhone, and Android

DURHAM, N.C., Dec. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CrossComm, Inc. announced today the launch of GoalWorthy.com, a free social game for discovering new life goals, earning points for life achievements, and sharing life victories with family and friends.

GoalWorthy uses social media and gamification to create a unique goal-setting experience. Users play by accepting real-life goals from the GoalWorthy community or by contributing their own goals. They can also use GoalWorthy to follow their friends' goal activity and provide encouragement. Players determine the worth of a goal using a voting system and as a goal receives more "worthy" votes, the points awarded to players upon achievement of that goal increases as well. The continued earning of points will cause a player's life to "Level Up." The GoalWorthy platform integrates seamlessly with Facebook, and GoalWorthy users can suggest goals and gift badges in recognition of achievements to their Facebook friends.  

"Our society spends a tremendous amount of time and energy on video games. As a gaming enthusiast myself, it would be great if we could channel some of that enthusiasm into achieving real world goals that matter to ourselves and our communities and Level Up our real lives." says Don Shin, CrossComm CEO. "Social media is an inherently powerful platform for personal goals as we tend to try harder when others are watching, and support from our community is essential for overcoming life's challenges. With the New Year approaching, we hope GoalWorthy will help our players have more fun in setting New Year's resolutions with their friends."

GoalWorthy, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of CrossComm, Inc., a mobile and web development studio headquartered in downtown Durham, NC. CrossComm sees the GoalWorthy launch as only the beginning, and plans to significantly enhance the platform in 2013 based upon initial end-user feedback and suggestions. CrossComm has kept the "beta" label on GoalWorthy as a reflection of these upcoming improvements, and aims to make GoalWorthy a catalyst for helping people reach their life dreams.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
