David Wilson Homes Continues to Boost Local Economy

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 -- Leading new home builders David Wilson Homes, continues to boost the local economy throughout the UK with the announcement it will start work on seven new projects in the East Midlands, during the next year.

Once completed, these developments will deliver 710 new homes and will underpin hundreds of jobs in Leicestershire.

The new programme will support future growth - including site acquisitions, major new planning wins and partnerships. This follows the legal completion of 553 homes during the 12 months to June 2012.

Philip Lacey Sales Director for David Wilson East Midlands commented, "Buyer confidence is steadily improving and we're seeing encouraging demand for our homes. The fact that we are starting new sites is also good news for local sub-contractors and the supply chain. We continue to highly value the strong relationships we have with our partners in the build process.

"One of the key issues for anyone buying a home continues to be getting the right mortgage. NewBuy, the 95% mortgage backed by government, is only available on new build homes, which means customers - both first time buyers and home movers - only need a 5% deposit."

David Wilson Homes will be working on the new developments over the next 12 months which includes 145 homes at Hastings Park on Leicester Road in Ashby, 122 at Ivanhoe Fields on Smisby Road in Ashby, 92 homes at The Greens in Hinckley, 52 at Britannia Park in Burbage, 178 in Whetstone, 108 in Glenfield, and 13 at De Lacy Court in Castle Donington.

Just three four bedroom homes remaining for sale priced from GBP 299,995 to GBP 302,995. For more information please contact David Wilson Homes at Quorn.

David Wilson Homes is committed to boosting the UK economy, whether new homes for sale in Leicestershire, London, or houses for sale in Glasgow. This news comes after the announcement of six new sites across Leicestershire, earlier in the year creating over 1,500 new jobs.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders?
