Non Profit Organization Choice Group Inc. Hosts Its Inaugural Fundraiser Gala On Tuesday, December 11, 2012 In Santa Monica, CA

THE EVENING WILL FEATURE SPECIAL PERFORMANCES BY GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING RECORDING ARTISTS MARY MARY, SINGER AKELEE AND CHOICE GROUP KIDS

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Non-profit organization, Choice Group Inc. (CGI), celebrates its inaugural fundraising gala with an intimate evening of recognition, exhibitions and performances on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at the Annenberg Beach House (415 Pacific Coast Highway, Santa Monica, CA 90402) at 6:30 PM (invite attached). The gala will showcase music, artwork and performances of Choice Group kids in the Los Angeles area along with special performances by award-winning recording duo and CGI Board Members, Erica and Tina Campbell of Mary Mary and Los Angeles-based singer Akelee. CGI, which is dedicated to providing quality media arts after-school programs for inner city and foster youth, will recognize and honor one of its board members, Grammy Award-winning producer Warryn Campbell, for his dedication to the program as well as title sponsor, Wells Fargo Bank's Branch Manager, Brad Moser for his involvement with CGI. The theme of the evening and overall message of CGI is "It's my choice", a slogan that encourages CGI kids to make better life choices.

"Knowing that so many schools are taking their music programs out, Choice Group offers that outlet for kids to have something meaningful and life-enhancing after school," says Mary Mary's Erica Campbell. "I know the program is very beneficial to at-risk youth. This is an organization that's making a difference in the community."

"We've seen Dana take children whose families may be facing economic challenges and have little to no knowledge of music and in 6-8 weeks, they are learning how to read music and playing collectively, like professionals," says Tina Campbell of Mary Mary. "We are encouraging others to get involved as we have because this is the organization to support. They are doing great things and it is definitely worth the time, effort and professional expertise of supporters."

In an effort to gather support for its mission from the music and entertainment industries,  CGI's gala not only aims to raise funds, but also bring attention to the impact CGI's programs has made on the South Los Angeles community for the past five years.

Choice Group participants will showcase musical performances and art exhibitions created during the 16-week program. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. To support the event or purchase tickets click the link: http://bit.ly/SaPOAt.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

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.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
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...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
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. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
