CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 -- Hannibal Industries, the North American master distributor for Metalsistem, announced launching a stocking distributor program in the United States today.

The automotive, archive, retail and food industries across the United States have a need for shelving and mezzanine products. The Hannibal Industries Metalsistem shelving program will better serve each of these industries' material handling needs by bringing product and support to their area.
"Hannibal Industries has well established material handling sales channels, and selling the Metalsistem product line opens up significant growth for the company," said Steve Rogers, VP of Sales for Hannibal Industries.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

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...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
