This partnership will provide customers with a fully managed yet cost effective 3D virtual solution. Customers will have the choice to use the platform alone as well as to select related services when they need it. “GenerationO has always been forward thinking. We are constantly looking for the latest and most accessible tools in marketing and continuously analyzing the market and related information. GenerationO concluded that attendance declining at physical events and virtual events have become the prevailing demand and lead generation techniques. In addition we found that the new generation of executives are not the newspaper reading crowd. This new generation wants to “show themselves” and “interact”. Consequently we looked for a 3D interactive and immersive platform that we could add value to and provide quality at a competitive price.” Said Mercedes Oz, Generation O Marketing’s Chief Marketing Generator. “3DXplorer was an obvious choice since it is the only platform on the market that provides a cloud-based collaboration and quality at a reasonable price.” continued Oz. This partnership will also allow GenerationO to present our offerings to other departments since virtual 3D collaboration is versatile and all departments can benefit from using it. Whether that is HR for employee on boarding, kick off meetings for sales, or product demos for engineering.”- added Oz.

All of this is available for free.  Any Webmaster can create their own lobby or space for Online gatherings and events.  The spaces can be customized to suit any type of business, association or group.

Enjoy it!

Oracle’s Acquisition of Sun Microsystems is a Giant Step Forward for Java!

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has signaled that once the $7.4 billion acquisition of Sun Microsystems is completed, he’ll push aggressively for broader use of Java software — by challenging Google and Microsoft, among others, in developing programs for netbooks, mobile devices and office productivity.

Ellison stated, “I think you’ll see lots and lots of Java devices, some coming from our friends at Google, but I don’t see why some of the devices shouldn’t come from Sun-Oracle,” he said. “There will be computers fundamentally based on Java and JavaFX, devices based on Java and JavaFX, not only from Google but also from Sun.”  Ellison even mentioned he wants to use Sun’s JavaFX Web development tools to beef up OpenOffice, a set of programs developed to rival Microsoft’s Office franchise.

3DXplorer, being Java-based and currently the only immersive and interactive 3D Online development platform which is browser-based and plug-in-less, will have significantly more development applications and an even broader market reach.  As a true enterprise software company, Oracle and its acquisition, is a giant step forward for Java.  3DXplorer developers and users will be in an ideal position to benefit greatly from this push for broader Java use!
