MEDFORD, Mass., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Black History Month brings recognition to so many people but it often forgets to look at our everyday citizens who work tirelessly and silently in their communities to make a change. Well in the small suburbs of Boston is a woman making history in her own right. In recognition of small businesspersons, who perform extraordinary deeds daily for their communities and their business world, Doreen Wade has received nomination by the Small Business Administration. Doreen has lead N.E. Informer Newsmagazine to develop partnerships with renown specialists throughout the United States, delivering news and information to uplift, educate and inform citizens of the community.
Doreen Wade, a driving force, works tirelessly in raising the public's awareness on missing children and adults. She sits on various boards, around the country. For example, she serves on a California board that raises awareness on the use of the "N" word through United Voices of Color Community. Doreen has spent many years as a surrogate single parent to her niece, Lisa and nephew, Ralph Wade. This event caused her to get involved, right out of college, working to help youths in Cambridge, Massachusetts, her hometown as a mentor and advocate in collaboration with the Cambridge School System and Police Department.
"Being an advocate, for the youth, was a great opportunity which guided me to where I am today. These youth helped me understand the importance of knowledge," Doreen said. "I've watched children in many communities, including my own in Cambridge, build confidence and grow through sharing the news and information they needed to find scholarships, write resumes and more information not many people take the time to relay. Doing this business helps me teach so many no matter where they come from or what they need, the resources are there to give them."
Doreen Wade has a strong commitment to uplift, educate and inform around the nation through its N.E. Informer Newsmagazine which supports organizations, foundations and businesses that help others improve their lives through education, literacy, help and more.
"It may sound simple, but it hasn't been for me," Doreen maintains. "It has been a struggle being a black woman with this type of business. Everyone wants to know if you make money; that's what they base working with you on. Small business is not looked on as a good risk. If they can't make money from you they don't care about your cause. This also goes for churches, government agencies, businesses in your community and people who preach to assist until you knock on their doors."
This spring, Doreen's nomination will either be a winning situation or a loss but, as Doreen said, just being given the honor of being nominated and knowledge of knowing her work has value is a win for her and her company.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
