Task and data management as a cloud service

Comm-Unity EDV has introduced KOI Solutions, a cloud-based solution for task and document management. The service enables access to Office documents, PDF files, pictures, voice memos or tasks – and from any Internet-enabled device, whether PC, MAC, iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone. Prices start from 29 euros per year.

KOI Solutions is an offer of the Austrian provider Comm-Unity EDV and sees itself as a cloud-based task and document management system. The service lets you manage tasks and create to-do lists, as well as offload Office documents, PDFs, images, and voice notes to the cloud.

In this way, all information of a project is centrally available and at any time retrievable from an Internet-enabled terminal. The service is available in three different editions for Windows, MacOS, iPhone and Android smartphones.

KOI TASKS is suitable for projects and tasks and includes functions such as follow-up, Smartfolders or Outlook integration and is available for the price of 29 euros per year. This includes a storage volume of 50 MB.

KOI DOCS includes all the features of KOI TASKS and offers additional document filing / management and scheduling options, and costs 89 Euros per year for a storage volume of 2 GB.

Finally, KOI Gold sees itself as a business solution and offers additional delegation functions, archiving, workflow management, organizational and role models and can be operated as a cloud service, but also on its own IT. Prices called the provider on request.

Virtual Directory for IP terminals from Alcatel-Lucent

XPhone Virtual Directory makes it possible to use distributed contact data, as found in almost every company, via a central interface as a web address book or in third-party systems such as CTI or unified communications solutions. Original data sources are linked to the Virtual Directory and made available via LDAP interfaces – without complete replication of the data stock.

Direct access to live address data

In addition to OCBC Active Directory, CSV, Tobit or application data Microsoft Dynamics products to personal and public Outlook contacts can be integrated. Users would always have direct access to current live address data. An integrated index should offer a search comfort, as one is used to it by common search engines. Numbers would automatically be normalized so that third-party systems such as CTI or UC applications could dial directly.

Program internal LDAP server

XPhone Virtual Directory extends any LDAP-enabled IP PBX and system telephones, such as Siemens OpenStage, but also Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft OCS via Web add-in and other LDAP-compatible systems via the program-internal LDAP server. In addition, the contact data could be provided on the company intranet and for mobile access via smartphones, for example with the Apple iPhone. Even unified communications solutions such as XPhone UC 2011 should be expandable with XPhone Virtual Directory.


Finding the appropriate machine learning algorithm to apply to data sets in finding patterns and relationships for situational analysis and for predictive analysis is a significant challenge. There are many desktop data miners, deep learning libraries and cognitive toolsets to choose from, but deep neural network learning is costly in terms of computing. Failure to consider performance and throughput at full scale can lead to customer dissatisfaction.

Fortunately, software engineers and related professionals are working together to solve these problems. For more information, visit the IEEE’s Big Data Initiative and the NIST Big Data Working Group
