What levels of security does your knowledge platform provide?

IQxCloud is distributed through one of the world’s largest international Cloud datacenters. The datacenter currently utilizes Military grade security.  This means best practices for physical systems security, and Military grade encryption.  The datacenter also backs-up stored data using a mirroring systems that provides that content is backed-up and stored in different physical locations to protect each client's knowledge stores against regional catastrophic events.  Likewise, some of the most advanced virus software is utilized by the datacenter to guard against malicious software infestations and data attacks.   

Subscriptions

Is Storage unlimited?

IQxCloud is a knowledge system, not a data system.  IQxCloud provides ample storage for most knowledge content requirements for small, medium, and large organizations, relative to their user base. 

What is your definition of a “user?”

IQStrategix considers a user to be one individual who is tied to a single email account.

How does your Enterprise Service Plan work?

Every company is different.  IQStrategix professional teams are available to work with Subscriber clients to accommodate their requirements.  The process involves an opening discussion, analysis and assessment of the plan’s requirements, followed with a quote and agreement for the services.  We like to take a systematic approach to each clients requirements as a foundation to a successful long-term relationship.

Do you offer discounts and service incentives?

Yes, as long as the number of users and term of engagement is cost effective.  As an example, client’s may want to use IQxCloud an an extended knowledge transfer technology for their customers.  In this case, the level of use by customers using an IQxCloud extended LMS system is less because customers typically only use the knowledge ecosystem as a product reference source, not as a day-to-day operational tool.  In these cases, use will be orient to search, copying, and downloads of how-to, and other documentation.   In other cases, a client may have multiple locations and require an English knowledge base be translated to other languages.

Is IQxCloud GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation) and CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) compliant?

IQxCloud is not required to be GDPR certified.  Certain client companies who have E.U. operations, however, might be required to be GDPR certified, in which case, we should discuss the specific applications they have in mind so we can work through those requirements together.  Likewise, IQStrategix and its IQxCloud technology are not operating as data brokers.  We do not collect and sell customer data to third parties. For this reason there is no reason for the company to be CCPA compliant.

Glossary

The world economy has reached the end of the Information Age which is now eclipsed by the Knowledge Age.  The Knowledge Age is about intelligent machines that are concept-driven that can know and reason like people. 

Conventional Cognitive technologies that are based on self-consistent logic that are bound by rules and functional limitations, are giving way to rational reasoning technologies that interact with people as if they were an associate or world authority on any subject.  This new breed of cognitive technology will soon become co-creative partners with people, not their controllers. 

This means that small, medium, and large companies can capture and share atomic concept knowledge without the need for vast and expensive stores of Big Data information.  They will work inductively (specific to the general), more than deductively (general to the specific). The efficiency, performance, and cost advantages are enormous. 

Following are some of the terms to help users better understand this new breed of technology and where it is headed.

Best Practices

The agreed-upon processes within an industry for accomplishing particular outcomes.

Cognition

the neurological process of acquiring, judging, organizing, storing, retrieving, and reasoning with the knowledge gained through human interpretive intelligence; life experience, enculturation, education, deep analytical thought.

Cognitive Literacy

Conscious understanding and use of disambiguated concepts (context, meaning, and purpose), thought schemas (universal patterns-of-thought), cognitive and explicit ontological expressions, and how mediating relationships work to promote critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Cognitive Task Analysis

An inductive (specific to the general) analysis of the thought processes that underlie the development, implementation, and application of ideas, products, and services.  Cognitive task functions are “second nature” and transparent to people once they are learned.  As a general rule Subject Matter Experts, management, and operational personnel typically leave out 50%-70% of the cognitive knowledge related to their expertise when sharing or transferring their knowledge to others.

Cognitive Technologies

Technologies that seek to mimic the thought processes of the human brain.

IQxCloud

A cognitive technology that is designed to interact with users on a conceptual level versus just a word level. IQxCloud digitally represents and conveys  the underlying conceptual structures that gives words, symbols, or phrases their context, eaning, amd purpose. When words represent multiple concepts, such as the word “spring,” each underlying concept is disambiguated according to its unique context, meaning, and purpose.  Once a word’s underlying concept(s) have been disambiguated and digitized, these contextualized words can be used to represent simple to complex knowledge.

Knowledge Management (KM)

Coordinated activity of identifying where the cognitive and explicit knowledge of an organization exists, and how that knowledge flows through the organization to optimize goals and objectives.  KM is concerned with corporate cultures, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the alignment of talent, knowledge, and skills with functions and tasks.  KM is an umbrella term that includes change management, training and development, learning and development, eLearning, eMentoring, Lean/continuous improvement, and ISO Quality Management Systems.

Lessons-learned knowledge

Firm-specific human capital for gaining competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Logical Reasoning

Man-made, rule-based reasoning systems requiring binary true/false, yes/no verification.  Logic requires self-consistency and looks for self-consistent answers.  Linguistics and general mathematics are based on rules and axiomatic assertions.   Most programming languages are based on logic as demonstrated by algorithms which are designed to execute self-consistent, repetitious, functions and tasks.

Ontology

A cognitive thought or explicit representation, that embodies context, meaning, purpose, especially with a point-of-view.

Organizational Knowledge

The individual and aggregate value of an organization’s “how, why, and what-if” workforce knowledge.  Organizational knowledge is mostly cognitive.  It is the intelligence that underlies the organizational structures, functions, procedures, tasks, and processes that employees, partners, suppliers and customers need to accomplish personal and organizational goals and objectives.  This organizational knowledge gives data/information its context, meaning, and purpose.  Cognitive knowledge = 85%, Data/Information = 15% of the knowledge equation.

Rational Reasoning

Innate human reasoning.  Purposeful, imaginative, goal-oriented reasoning processes that solve problems or predicts impacts, outcomes, and consequences.  Rational thought considers known variables (dependencies, contingencies, cross-references, causal relationships, etc.), and points-of-view, that argue for or against something.  Rational thought solves problems, is used for planning and general human-to-human interactions.  It gives the facts associated with situations and circumstances their context, meaning, and purpose. 

What are IQxTemplates

Templates from SMEs

Subject Matter Expert (SME)

A person who knows a lot about a particular subject.

Thought Schemas

Cognitive frameworks that enable rational and logical cognitive processes to occur between people regardless of language or culture.  Common thought schemas include sets, flows,, compositions, taxonomies, sequences, and choice.  Thought schemas are foundational to IQxCloud human-machine concept-driven interactivity.
