MINNEAPOLIS, MN and ST. PAUL, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 03/07/13 -- TST Media, Inc., a leading provider of web and mobile-based software solutions for sports organizations, today announced it has been selected by the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC), a new NCAA® Division I men's hockey conference, to design and maintain the conference's website, www.nchchockey.com. The announcement was jointly made this morning by Justin Kaufenberg, co-founder and chief executive officer of TST Media and Jim Scherr, NCHC commissioner, at the 24th annual Let's Play Hockey Expo at RiverCentre in St. Paul, Minn.
Under the terms of the agreement, the NCHC will use TST Media's proprietary sports software, Sport Ngin, to power its conference website and connect with conference stakeholders through online, mobile and social media channels. Leveraging Sport Ngin's rich functionality, NCHC can easily update player and coach profiles, team rosters, game schedules and results and other conference information, and offer high-quality, integrated experiences and engagement to fans.
"The NCHC's selection of Sport Ngin to manage its web and mobile presence represents another important milestone in the ongoing growth and development of TST Media, and serves as further evidence of our unique ability to meet the diverse marketing and digital commerce needs of today's hockey organizations," said Kaufenberg. "Sport Ngin offers customers a great deal of value and flexibility, so the application can be easily refined as the conference's communication needs evolve, and as fan and media interest in its member schools grows."
"With the help of TST Media's development team and through Sport Ngin's many leading features, this newly-launched website will serve as the centerpiece of the NCHC's communications strategy to generate brand awareness and stimulate fan engagement heading into our first season of play later this year," said Scherr. "Ultimately, we aligned ourselves with TST Media because of its extensive hockey experience, which includes the management of similar online platforms for the world's largest pond hockey tournament, the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships, and nearly one-fourth of all the hockey clubs in North America."
The NCHC's members include Colorado College, University of Denver, Miami University (Ohio), University of Minnesota at Duluth, University of Nebraska at Omaha, University of North Dakota, St. Cloud State University, and Western Michigan University. Conference play is scheduled to begin in mid-October of 2013. The first conference championship, the winner of which will earn an automatic berth in the NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Championships, will take place March 21-22, 2014 at Target Center in Minneapolis.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

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 @...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

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...

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.
