LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/11 -- Teleflora, the world's leading flower delivery service, along with five-time Grammy Award winner Faith Hill, today announced the creation of "The Collection by Faith Hill." Developed with Teleflora to reflect her style, taste, and artistry, Faith Hill and her Teleflora collection -- "The Collection by Faith Hill" -- will be unveiled in Teleflora's latest television commercial set to debut during Super Bowl XLV on FOX on Sunday, February 6, 2011. Teleflora returns to the big game for a third year with a 30-second spot that will air during the second quarter. Teleflora and Hill will collaborate throughout the year on "The Collection by Faith Hill," adding to the assortment with a variety of elegant bouquets, including Valentine's Day flowers, Mother's Day flowers, and Christmas flowers, as well as everyday occasions.
Hill stars in a laugh-out-loud Valentine's Day spot staged in a recording studio where she steps in to coach her sound tech through a Valentine's Day dilemma, creating an unexpected and funny twist to the spot. Also making its debut in the commercial is the lead bouquet in "The Collection by Faith Hill" Valentine's Day assortment -- "The Valentine's Bouquet." The Valentine's Day product lineup in "The Collection by Faith Hill" also includes five additional bouquets, all available on teleflora.com and in the shops of local Teleflora florists. Like every floral gift from Teleflora, it is personally designed and delivered by a local florist in the recipient's neighborhood and arrives ready-to-enjoy in a keepsake vase.
"We are excited about our partnership with Faith Hill, who is a perfect fit for the Teleflora brand. Faith is an entertainer who has broad appeal and transcends musical genres. Teleflora leads the floral industry with products that showcase quality and superior designs, and this partnership is another reflection of that," said Shawn Weidmann, President, Teleflora. "There is no better opportunity to introduce consumers to "The Collection by Faith Hill" than with a spot during the year's most widely watched sporting event on television. And it's right before Valentine's Day -- one of the busiest times for the floral industry."
"It's been a lot of fun designing a line of hand-arranged bouquets with Teleflora," said Faith Hill. "They're a great company that takes pride in their products, their flowers -- and in their commercials. I can't think of any better way to kick-off this partnership than with an ad during the Super Bowl."
Also debuting in conjunction with Teleflora's latest commercial will be Teleflora's fun new "Flower Coach" iPhone application, which ties into the theme of the commercial with an unexpected twist.
The company's in-house ad agency, Fire Station, was behind the concept and creation of the hilarious new spot. The spot was produced by Hungry Man, Inc. and directed by Bryan Buckley, who has directed more than 50 big game commercials and has won numerous awards for his work. The commercial will continue to air through Saturday, February 12, 2011 on sports-focused cable channels and primetime cable shows geared towards male viewers.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
