For the second time in a year, senior management from Rhiza Labs will be speaking at the Web 2.0 Expo. Michael Higgins, Rhiza’s CTO, will be on a panel titled, Insight on the iPad. Mike will be on a panel including other leaders from Google, Loopt and Jackson Fish Market (creators of A Story Before Bed, one of my kids favorite iPad apps).
The Web 2.0 Expo is hosted by Tim O’Reilly and O’Reilly & Associates, and is described as “a conference and tradeshow for everyone who cares about embracing and extending the opportunities created by Web 2.0 technologies. Web 2.0 Expo engages thousands of participants.” Thousands of attendees are expected.
Rhiza Labs’ recent announcement about our web apps just working on the iPad caught the attention of the conference organizers and they invited Mike to speak.
Rhiza Insight continues to be one of the only business intelligence mapping engines that works on the iPad (and almost every other common platform) because it is a well-designed web app that does not rely on Flash or other add-ons. Almost all competitors to Rhiza Labs are stuck trying to re-engineer most of their front end because of poor design choices that are not scaling with the emerging web ecosystem.
