GridGlo Secures $1.1M to Expand its Groundbreaking Data Fusion Platform; Rebrands as TROVE Predictive Data Science

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. --(Business Wire)--

GridGlo, a leader in data-powered predictive science, announces that it has raised $1.1M in new capital and has rebranded under the name TROVE Predictive Data Science.

TROVE fuses an organization's existing internal data with valuable external data sources and applies its state-of-the-art predictive science to help customers uncover new opportunities to monetize data and drive innovation. The capital infusion comes from new strategic investors as well as existing investor and TROVE partner CUBRC, Inc., a research organization with deep data fusion expertise initially developed for the U.S. Department of Defense and other U.S. government agencies. The funding will be used to develop new applications for TROVE's platform. Today, TROVE's predictive science platform is helping utility companies optimize programs, identify fraud, forecast demand, and segment customers.

"Over te past three years we have continually refined our technology to meet the big data challenges faced by utility managers as they seek innovative ways to extract business and operational value from the smart grid," said Isaias Sudit, founder and CEO of TROVE Predictive Data Science. "As TROVE has evolved, we have discovered many new ways that predictive data science can identify insights that drive value for our customers across many market segments. In fact our experience shows that the ability to transform data into actionable, results-driven insights is the single most important key to achieving business transformation in the coming years."

The rebranding from GridGlo to TROVE was driven by the need for a name that was more reflective of the value the company brings to its customers. "After considering numerous alternatives, we settled on TROVE as a name that immediately connotes a collection of valuable resources," commented Sudit.

Tom McMahon President and CEO of CUBRC noted, "TROVE's technology platform is state-of-the-art, leveraging decades of research and development in multi-source data fusion. Combining expertise in statistics, engineering, computer science, data fusion and other highly specialized disciplines, TROVE can accurately and repeatedly help customers predict future behaviors and capitalize on emerging trends."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
