About TriStar Motorsports
TriStar Motorsports was established in 1989 by Mark and Kathy Smith. In its early years, the team competed in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, where the team won the Coors Light Pole for the 1994 Daytona 500 with Loy Allen Jr. -- the first rookie in the history of NASCAR to set the pace for the historic race. After accumulating 151 starts in the Winston Cup Series, with three poles and nine top-10s, Smith withdrew from team ownership to focus on building engines for the NASCAR industry. Now, Smith's company -- Pro Motor Engines -- is the leading independent builder of race engines for all three of NASCAR's top-tier divisions and other series like ARCA and the SCCA. Smith was eager to return to team ownership and the opportunity came along in 2010 when he re-launched his TriStar Motorsports team and began fielding cars in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In only three short years, TriStar Motorsports has accumulated 279 starts and closed out their 2012 campaign with driver Mike Bliss sitting eighth in the Championship Point Standings. Former driver Tayler Malsam closed out the year 15th and the team's sophomore driver, Eric McClure, finished a mere 50 points out of the top-15 in 16th position. The team plans to field four entries in 2013 with manufacturer support from Toyota.

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...
