OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- Canadiankiosk.ca, Canada's largest online city guide is giving Ottawans the chance to save at local businesses with the launch of their Digital Rewards program. Canadian Kiosk Digital Rewards kicks off February 16th and 17th during Winterlude, as part of WinterBrewed beer festival on Sparks Street.
Canadian Kiosk representatives will be on site at WinterBrewed signing up new members, and the first 400 people to sign up at the Digital Rewards tent will receive access to an exclusive VIP party. The party is being held on Sunday February 17th in the Marriot Hotel ball room, in celebration of the program launch. Party attendees will have the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes, while enjoying a live band, as well as food, cocktails, and local craft beers.
Digital Rewards by Canadiankiosk.ca is a loyalty program with a twist. Members earn points just for walking into local businesses, no purchase necessary! Members can trade in their points at the Digital Rewards Online Store for gift certificates, freebies, and special members-only offers. It's easy to get started, simply visit www.digitalrewards.ca, sign up for a bracelet, key chain, or card - and register it at one of the Canadiankiosk.ca Digital Rewards Kiosks installed at participating businesses.
The in-store shopping experience is destined to change for Canadian Kiosk Digital Rewards partners, and members. Recognizing that Near Filed Communication (NFC) is quickly becoming standard on next generation mobile devices, Canadian Kiosk Digital Rewards Members can use NFC enabled phones to rack up their reward points at participating retailers instead of carrying a traditional membership card.
Eager Digital Rewards Members can collect extra points by participating in Canadian Kiosk Missions, such as the Bar Star Mission where members check into three bars within 6 hours, and are rewarded extra points for successfully completing the mission! For those with a more cultured palate, the Art Attack mission awards bonus points for visiting three art galleries in a six hour period.
The CanadianKiosk.ca Digital Rewards program also rewards its members for being loyal by offering four levels of membership. Members begin as a 'Tourist', and as points are accumulated, graduate to the level of 'Local', 'VIP', and finally 'Local Celeb'. The more businesses the member experiences - and the more events they attend - the bigger their rewards. Not only will higher ranking members have access to better deals, they are also given more exciting missions, as well as better items in the Digital Rewards Online Store.
The program is all about enjoying what is local. From arts and entertainment, to high end shopping and sporting events, Canadian Kiosk is set to create the largest and most trusted online rewards programs that encourages people to buy locally, and be active in their communities.

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...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
