Go back in time with Street View If you’ve ever dreamt of being a time traveler like Doc Brown, now’s your chance. Starting today, you can travel to the past to see how a place has changed over the years by exploring Street View imagery in Google Maps for desktop. We've gathered historical imagery from past Street View collections dating back to 2007 to create this digital time capsule of the world. If you see a clock icon in the upper left-hand portion of a Street View image, click on it and move the slider through time and select a thumbnail to see that same place in previous years or seasons. Now with Street View, you can see a landmark's growth from the ground up, like the Freedom Tower in New York City or the 2014 World Cup Stadium in Fortaleza, Brazil. This new feature can also serve as a digital timeline of recent history, like the reconstruction after the devastating 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Onagawa, Japan.
The Intersection of IoT and Payments: An Emerging Commerce Opportunity Big Data projects offer the promise of generating value from previously ignored or under-exploited data. Many enterprises are looking to take advantage of new data sources and combine that with the wealth of information they already hold about their customers, their business, even their competitors to develop new innovative applications and services, such as: · combining data from devices, sensors, customers, and analyze that in real time to react better and faster (example, location-based services) · pursue new opportunities in an adjacent markets – for example selling predictive maintenance services to the buyers of your products · accelerate time to market – for example identifying the most valuable customers and launching special programs to boost loyalty Innovation from Big Data is driven by experimentation to uncover new markets or data-driven products and services, as well as trying out new business processes, searching for new insights, and testing new hypotheses.

Submit MSISDNs (cell phone numbers) via the Enterprise Web Client, the HTTP REST API, file upload or SDKs. The HLR lookup core engine then queries the SS7 signaling network, obtains data from the relevant Mobile Network Operator (MNO) and you receive reports with results in JSON, HTML, PDF or CSV at a speed of up to 500 MSISDNs per second. HLR Lookups is a technology to check the status of any GSM cell phone number. By making a query to the Home Location Register, the lookup service determines whether that number is valid, whether it is currently active in a mobile network, and if so which network, whether it was ported from another network, and whether it is roaming. The query will also return meta information such as the IMSI, MSC, MCC and MNC.
