MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Spring has brought some big changes to leadership at the Minneapolis Marriott West hotel. While this Minneapolis suburb hotel was sad to see its former general manager go, they're happy he'll be taking his talents to another Marriott property. Plus, it also allowed the hotel to bring in a fresh face to fill the general manager position.
Former general manager Michael Clark is now the managing director of The Depot Minneapolis Complex, which is coincidentally where it all began for him. In 2004, he started at The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel as a banquet manager before moving on to be the general manager at the Minneapolis Marriott West in 2011. After two years at this Minneapolis hotel near downtown, he's excited to take on a new challenge.
With Clark leaving this Lake Minnetonka hotel near downtown, it left a space to be filled in the general manager position, and the Minneapolis Marriott West hotel found a well-qualified replacement in Lori Geiwitz. She began her career with CSM Lodging in 1998 as director of training. In 2003, she and Clark crossed paths at The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, where she was general manager until 2011. She then took on the general manager role at the Courtyard Minneapolis Bloomington.
At the Courtyard Minneapolis Bloomington, Geiwitz had a significant and positive impact on associate satisfaction survey scores, a result of her focus on staff development, hotel appearance and technology. In her time there, three employees went through the manager-in-training program and found permanent positions in the company.

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 ...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

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...

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...
