Customization and efficiency have always been important to businesses. To some it may seem obvious, but in reality, these two software features are frequently overlooked. Akvelon is proud to have worked on two new releases from Microsoft which were made available last week. The first,... Read more →
The amount of deaths caused by traffic accidents each year is staggering. In 2014 alone, there were over 35,000 motor vehicle related deaths in just the United States and it’s nearly forty times that worldwide. With recent advancements in technology, Victor Bahl, director of Microsoft’s... Read more →
Bellevue, Wa – Open source SDK provides access to a new set of Office 365 OData based services for Exchange Mail, Contact, Calendar as well as Sharepoint files and lists. Except for a small authentication wrapper, Exchange SDK code is automatically generated based on OData metadata and is exposed via Java Proxy (reflection) classes that provide JPA in a simple way to interact with a structured object model.
An infrastructure has been developed to generate SDKs based on any OData V4 compliant service metadata. SDK has been released to Maven Central repository. SDK and demo application, showcasing the SDK, have been presented at the SPC 2014 conference. Through the project, code contributions were made to ODataJClient OSS project and ADAL (Azure Active Directory Authentication Layer) OSS project. The contributed code has been moved to Apache Olingo project which has evolved from incubation, to a top level Apache project in a little over a month.
Akvelon engineering team has been working on Android Office 365 SDK in collaboration with the MS Open Tech team and we are happy to see it is finally released.
Microsoft blogged about it as did MS Open Tech in a more detailed post.

Working with data for professional athlete injury avoidance
Data science in sports has evolved and accelerated over the last several years, helping teams make better decisions regarding athletes and strategy (post & pre game, scouting, recruitment & acquisitions). The adoption and evolution of new applied technologies is slowly replacing notational analysis and allowing for improved insights into large data sets with specific actions to affect performance, create high performance environments and optimize applied Sports Science approaches.
Akvelon has seen the potential of sports technology, thanks to our participation in projects with professional sports teams and sports application development around the world. This exciting advancement was recently shown at the Microsoft Data Insights Summit. The Seattle Seahawks, in collaboration with Akvelon, Microsoft and Advanced Machines LLC, presented some new technologies that aid in player injury prevention.
This process uses Facial Recognition to identify the players, specially designed hardware to capture specific core and strength measurements, Azure Services to analyze the data and Power BI to visualize insights from the data.
Dean Riddle of the Seattle Seahawks and the Sports Science team utilize the results of these measurements to adapt training sessions and load for particular players who could be at risk from potential injuries.

The collected data is visualized through the use of Power BI toolset for quick interpretations and insights into the data gathered from the device. It’s incredibly valuable to help ensure the continued health of the athlete, aid in the training load decision making processes and feedback mechanism of the coaches.
Dean Riddle and Patrick Ward from the Seattle Seahawks’ Sports Science Team in conversation with Marc Reguera demonstrated the technology on Monday, June 12th. We look forward to working on further advancements in this exciting area of growth.
We held our annual Akvelon Holiday Party on December 18th! Check out some of the photos from the event:
