House of Marley products are sold in markets worldwide, including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and the Caribbean. House of Marley donates five percent of annual profits to 1Love, the global movement sparked by the Marley family that provides funding to charities and causes focused on youth, planet and peace.
“The Marley name is synonymous with universal messages of sustainability, humanity, authenticity and integrity shared through music and a way of living that transcends geography, demographics, and cultures,” said Senior Vice President and General Manager of House of Marley –North America, Sam Vanderveer. “All attendees are invited to join our global Marley movement as we expand our distinctive audio and lifestyle product, while opening up the minds, eyes and ears of the industries in which we do business, as well as Marley fans around the world.”

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

In this power panel at @...

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
