Finetech appointed as Google Maps Platform Partner for Sri Lanka

Image
For as long as explorers have journeyed the seven seas, maps have been the key instrument to getting them to where they want to go. This ancient “art form” has truly evolved to a tool in the 21 st century that allows not just individuals, but also businesses, to quite literally navigate their way to a desired destination. Understanding the importance and unending possibilities, Google developed the Google Maps APIs in 2005. Since then it has evolved to Google Maps Platform and helps organizations and developers create better experiences and improve operations through detailed Geo-spatial data for more than 250 countries and territories.  Google’s work transformation certified partner in Sri Lanka since 2010, Finetech Consultancy (Pvt) Ltd recently became a Google Maps Premier Partner, adding to their list of capabilities with Google Cloud products and services. Becoming a Google Maps Premier Partner means FCPL is specialized in providing Geo-spatial experiences to their end users to op

Google Cloud and MongoDB Atlas expand their partnership

As the volume and velocity of data grows daily, business success depends on the ability to manage it effectively and transform it into actionable insights. Since 2019, Google Cloud and MongoDB have worked together to give businesses the secure, global, and highly performant infrastructure, the sophisticated data intelligence, and the developer-centric tools they need to power modern, data-driven cloud applications. Our partnership with MongoDB continues to deliver richer yet simpler ways to lead with software.  With MongoDB Atlas on Google Cloud, developers can build upon a solid foundation that enables them to work with data the way they want in support of global-scale applications. For example, Forbes, a large business media brand, migrated its platform to Google Cloud and MongoDB Atlas in just six months. The company’s new cloud infrastructure helped the website scale to accommodate record-breaking growth even while making development more nimble. MongoDB’s document model meant deve

Intelligent corrections for formulas in Google Sheets

Image
  Last year, Google launched formula suggestions in Sheets, which recommend formulas for specific cells based on the data you are analyzing. Now, you can write formulas faster and with higher confidence with formula corrections. These intelligent, context-aware corrections help you improve and troubleshoot many different kinds of formulas. Some examples include:  VLOOKUP errors  Missing cells in range input  Locking ranges when applying formulas across cells  Whenever you insert a formula that Sheets detects may be improved, a suggestion box will appear with details on a new version that can replace the current formula, including the ability to accept or reject it. For example, the above correction helps users when writing VLOOKUP functions, which only return values to the right of the matched cell. The correction suggests a combination of INDEX and MATCH functions to reverse the column order in the formula.  End users: This feature will be available by default and can be disabled by g

Zoom Reaches Three Key Milestones Across Healthcare

Image
  We’re proud to announce that we’ve reached three key milestones across the health sector, with Zoom now DTAC and DCB0129: Clinical Risk Management ready and with a Data Security and Protection toolkit in place, giving healthcare organisations the confidence they need to make full use of our platform. These milestones cement our commitment to helping the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) achieve its priorities to significantly increase the number of people it can diagnose, treat and care for, while reducing inequalities in access, including through use of video consultations.

The use of Zoom across the NHS has grown significantly over the last two years and we’ve seen NHS organisations enhance their delivery of care and patient outcomes by introducing virtual Zoom consultations and integrating it seamlessly with their electronic patien

How technology is forging the foundation for more efficient, transparent and secure financial markets

Image
Financial markets were among the first to adopt new technologies, and that has certainly been true of the derivatives markets, which were early adopters of electronic trading. Going forward, new capabilities will transform the way industry participants communicate, analyze, and trade.  I sat down with Google Cloud’s Phil Moyer and former SEC Commissioner, Troy Paredes, for a fireside chat at FIA Boca 2022 to discuss the future of markets and policy, the new technologies that are already paving the way for greater speed and transparency, and how cloud can help promote greater resiliency, performance, and security to enable the long-term vision for the market. The following is a summary of our discussion. The current state of cloud technology When it comes to technology adoption, we’re seeing the market and participants adopt cloud technologies, and increasingly, machine learning (ML) on a wider scale. Cloud technology allows for easier, faster, and much more secure experimentation with

New Google Meet management settings for admins

Image
  What’s changing Through new settings in the Admin console, admins can now control access to the following Google Meet features: Chat Present Q&A Polls These new settings are available for Google Workspace editions that include admin capabilities. See below for more information. Who’s impacted Admins and end users Why it’s important Previously, only the meeting hosts and co-hosts could control access to these features on a per meeting basis. Now admins will be able to specify which interactive Meet features users in their domain can access.  These features give administrators more control over how Google Meet is used in their organization. For example, in a school, these settings allow you to control whether or not students can present or send chat messages during video meetings. In business settings, specifically at large company meetings, giving the event host control over whether or not to conduct polls or Q&As during video meetings is a useful feature. Additional details O
