Oculus Technologies Corporation's Oculus CO is a peer-to-peer application used to increase the flow of information within an extended enterprise as a means of smoothing out the product development process and enabling people to make better decisions. Oculus P2P provides an infrastructure "glue" for integrating disparate data, applications, platforms, and organizations together using a 4-Tiered peer-to-peer (P2P) architecture to provide a completely decentralized and secure computing environment. Ford motorcompany announced that it will be using Oculus CO to enable its remotely-located design teams to collaborate with each other across numerous operating systems and applications. Ford believes that Oculus CO will provide a collaborative environment in a vendor-neutral environment that will greatly improve its design processes.
