Turning Realtime into Real Revenue

A session at Keeping It Realtime Conference 2011

Monday 7th November, 2011

10:00am to 10:40am (PST)

The realtime web is just getting started and while there are clear success stories amongst some silicon valley b2c startups, how can other small startups and the rest of the mainstream web develop, scale and profit from realtime products?

Khris Loux is the co-founder and CEO of Echo - a leading provider of realtime infrastructure to major media, brands and startups. Together with ISVs they have built and shipped realtime products at scale - making millions of dollars in the process.

Khris will share insights on where the realtime web is going, the business models and techniques to get there and how to turn cutting edge technology into profit.

Khris Loux has a long history of building, running and selling successful technology startups. He works with his team at Echo to define broad philosophical models for how the web might evolve (See: Synaptic Web, Data Portability, Realtime Storytelling, Facebook Tentacles) and leads Echo in executing on its part of the future.

Echo’s StreamServer serves 1 billion search requests/realtime streams a month for major customers like Turner Sports, NBCU, UMG, ESPN/ABC/Disney, Discovery, Reuters, Washington Post, Newsweek, Showtime, Rainbow media and more.
