monitor110

monitor110 was a corporate intelligence tool used by the financial services industry to track blogs, the hidden web and static web pages for changes.

Monitor110 was founded with the simple goal of helping Institutional Investors leverage the latest technology and data to make better investment decisions. The company prides itself on using technology to identify, collect and organize hard-to-find, yet publicly available information before the information is widely disseminated.

There is a wealth of new information on the Internet. Finding, collecting and organizing information for investors is the mission of Monitor110. The Monitor110 solution includes reviewing over 20 million data sources, in real-time, to detect changes that could be pertinent to the financial community.

monitor110 is now out of business and the monitor110 website now responds to web requests via ChangeDetect.

The founder of monitor110 in a post morteum has claimed the following issues leading to the demise of monitor110:

  1. The lack of a single, "the buck stops here" leader until too late in the game
  2. No separation between the technology organization and the product organization
  3. Too much PR, too early
  4. Too much money
  5. Not close enough to the customer
  6. Slow to adapt to market reality
  7. Disagreement on strategy both within the Company and with the Board

Seems that the venture was doomed from the start. Nobody could figure out what the "110" in monitor110 meant. However the owners of monitor110 may have been quoted with this as the definition of the "110" in monitor110: "110" is binary for the number "6". "6" as in six degrees of separation.
