SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Alongside world premiere independent films, Verve made its debut to the film world elite at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival held in Park City, Utah, from January 17-27. As a sponsor of the Project Green Music Lounge, Verve not only helped support the nonprofit's mission to protect green space for future generations and fund Back-to-Basics Summer Camps for under-served children, but it also energized Sundance attendees, from A-list celebrities and film industry executives, to VIP moviegoers.
Guests of the Project Green Music Lounge and The RE:treat lounge sponsored by Entertainment Tonight, MTV, Project Green, The Creative Coalition, CW3PR, Nikki Beach, Southwest Airlines and Minnetonka were treated to Verve Energy Drink as well as Verve Healthy Happy Hour cocktails. The Project Green Music Lounge and RE:treat were bursting with energy and provided spectacular views and hot venues for celebrity interviews, music and entertainment. Guests also received a selection of Verve Energy Drink products in celebrity swag bags distributed at the lounge-style gifting suites. Verve was shared with Hollywood elite such as Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Watts, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Bell, Jane Lynch and others, who received Verve and Verve Zero Sugar to enjoy at the festival.
With its great taste and healthy ingredients, Verve also caught the attention of Entertainment Tonight and will be featured on the show's Sundance Special, which airs this week in the United States and internationally over the weekend.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
