Last fall, members of the Tech in Motion community from around the Washington, DC metropolitan area attended the DC chapter’s Demos & Drinks meetup event at the Advisory Board Company. Emphasizing a relaxed atmosphere, Tech in Motion’s demos events are styled similarly to a job fair; attendees can circulate freely from one company’s table to the next while enjoying drinks and good company.
The demos event took place at the Advisory Board Company, a modern-style office located in the heart of Washington. Members of Tech in Motion DC’s community, including entrepreneurs, developers, product and project managers, systems and network engineers, designers, and marketers all began arriving at 6:00 pm; attendees began filing into the board room suite that allowed the demo companies to set up their presentations and interact with the 100+ engaged attendees comfortably. Refreshments flowed abundantly at a bar located in the back of the room.
The demo companies, DataRPM, Streamup, EventKloud, and Vouched, received an extremely enthusiastic response from the DC tech community and shed light on their respective products’ impact on their industry.
DataRPM is an award-winning, industry pioneer in Smart Machine Analytics for Big Data. DataRPM’s demo showed how their product enables Automatic Data Modeling from disparate data sources using cognitive algorithms.
Streamup is a live video community, whose product allows viewers to watch thousands of real-time channels and talk to other viewers or create their own channel and broadcast from there. Their demo detailed how users can establish their own streaming channel as well as discover new channels of interest to subscribe to.
Pipevine’s Vouched app geared their demo towards professionals who are business development oriented. This tool allows users to crowdsource their strongest professional traits, using existing LinkedIn connections.
As an event marketing software, EventKloud’s demo was interesting to those who are business analytics oriented and find themselves in the marketing and sales space. This customizable software provides personalized content, encourages engagement & utilizes data-driven audience intelligence to improve the marketing for event campaigns.
“It was a really awesome, engaging event,” one DC techie remarked.
