WISHCLOUDS Premieres New Social Shopping Platform at ChefDance in Park City, UT

Helps Celebrities Connect With Fans, Charities Raise Funds, Consumers Save Money

PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WISHCLOUDS (www.WISHCLOUDS.com) is debuting its beta social shopping site to the entertainment community as the Presenting Sponsor of ChefDance, the five night invite only dinner party series.  WISHCLOUDS empowers consumers to discover recommended products from their favorite celebrities, friends and curators.   Designed to help celebrities foster deeper relationships with their fans, WISHCLOUDS also creates a new avenue to raise money for their favorite non-profit organizations.  

Each "Wish Cloud" is curated by the tastemaker, enabling them to communicate a truly honest, authentic reflection of their personal taste while giving fans unprecedented access to their favorite things.  On the WISHCLOUDS site, celebrity tastemakers curate an unlimited number of "Wish Clouds"  -- personalized product collections – selected from millions of products from more than 75 popular retailers, including Macy's, Nordstrom, Best Buy, Williams-Sonoma, Bloomingdales, Forever 21 and across the web.  Once a celebrity saves a product to their "Cloud," WISHCLOUDS goes to work tracking the prices of products, alerting fans when they go on sale. 

WISHCLOUDS has 60+ high profile tastemakers signed-up from popular TV shows like "Castle," "Revenge" and "Teen Wolf."  Through WISHCLOUDS, celebrities can activate the power of their social media footprint to support their favorite charities by designating proceeds from their "Wish Clouds" to individual non-profit organizations.  Charities can also set up their own "Wish Clouds" comprised of products associated with the organization's DNA.  WISHCLOUDS has already aligned with a number of charities, including The Magic Johnson Foundation and Walking with Anthony.

"WISHCLOUDS is a game changer for fan/celebrity connections as it provides unprecedented access to a tastemaker's favorite things," says Gregory Miller, CEO of WISHCLOUDS.  "WISHCLOUDS extends beyond celebrities to brands.  Think of a blockbuster franchise offering products featured in the film in its own branded WISHCLOUD, bringing opportunities for studios, networks, production companies and brand America."

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

“Why didn’t testing catch this” must become “How did this make it to testing?” Traditional quality teams are the crutch and excuse keeping organizations from making the necessary investment in people, process, and technology to accelerate test automation.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
