NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MGA Entertainment will shine the spotlight on new-for-spring developments for each of its mega-brands at New York International Toy Fair 2013.
The Bratz® dolls – Bratz has never been afraid to take risks and they're at it again! Cloe, Jade, Sasha and Yasmin are shaking things up with a 2-inch taller scale, while maintaining their now-ubiquitous beautiful and bold look. The Bratz dolls increase in size from their original 10-inch scale to a taller 12-inch frame allowing for a wider array of fashion design opportunities as well as enhanced articulation for increased playability. Ever since their earliest introduction in 2001, the Bratz dolls quickly set themselves apart as innovative, inspiring and independent and capturing the hearts of girls the world-over with their unique, almond-shaped eyes, innovative fashions, strong friendship and cutting-edge style. To help introduce the new taller Bratz dolls, MGA Entertainment will launch a special Real Bratz campaign showcasing girls that exemplify the dolls' commitment to taking charge and seeking positive change. So what is a Real Bratz girl? She is a leader, game changer and your best friend. She thinks outside the box, unleashes her passion to be who she is and creates her own path!
Bratz® Totally Polished™ brings fun and funky nail play to fashion dolls. Each doll comes with 12 adhesive reusable nails that match the Bratz girls' fashions.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

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. In this power panel at @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
