Wyse Pays it Forward -- Supports Bay Area and Silicon Valley Charitable Foundations

Cloud Client Computing Leader Donates to Charities for Education, Youth, Health, Anti-Poverty Programs

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/12 -- As a company with a 30-year history in Silicon Valley, Wyse Technology, the leader in cloud client computing, has strong ties to the community where it resides. In 2011, Wyse supported various charitable foundations that create programs for education, youth, health, and the fight against poverty in the greater Bay Area and Silicon Valley.

"While Silicon Valley is known for creating wealth, there are individuals and families who are struggling to make ends meet, and organizations that lack resources for the constituents that they serve. Wyse is proud of its philanthropic tradition of supporting those in need," said Jamie Horejš, Director of Human Resources at Wyse.

Wyse has had a long history of volunteering and donating to San Jose-based Sacred Heart Community Service, whose mission is to build a community in Silicon Valley free from poverty. Each year, Wyse employees volunteer their time to assist with food and toy distribution during the holidays. In addition, this past year Wyse spearheaded the creation of 60 Survival Sacks for the holidays. The Survival Sacks are backpacks containing essential new items such as underwear, socks, a washcloth, a small blanket, and hygiene supplies. Wyse also donated the company's industry-leading thin clients to revamp Sacred Heart's computer lab where adults can take computer skills courses. Thanks to the Wyse devices, the new computer lab requires less maintenance, less power, less space and is more reliable than the previous aging PCs.

In addition to Sacred Heart Community Service, other organizations that Wyse supported in 2011 are:

American Heart Association, Silicon Valley Chapter: The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Okizu Foundation: The mission of the Okizu Foundation is to provide peer support, respite, mentoring, and recreational programs to meet the needs of all members of families affected by childhood cancer.

Santa Clara County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association: Provides resources and advocate for the needs of Foster & Adoptive Families in Santa Clara County.

Silicon Valley Education Foundation: The mission of SVEF is to make Silicon Valley the leader in academically prepared students, especially in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Silicon Valley Leadership Group's 1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds: The 1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds campaign was created to narrow the achievement gap in Silicon Valley by leveraging the creative energy of the world's most innovative workforce and residents to support students who are struggling most in the core areas of literacy, math and science.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.
