Public Interest Registry Unveils New Brand Identity

.ORG's Nonprofit Operator Introduces New Logo to Reaffirm Mission to Serve in the Public Interest

RESTON, Va., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Public Interest Registry, the not-for-profit operator of the .ORG domain, today announced a rebranding of the organization. The fresh change in its visual brand design exemplifies the organization's brand identity as the trustworthy, purposeful, spirited and collaborative operator of .ORG – the world's third largest generic domain – and the soon-to-be-launched .NGO and .ONG domain.

By integrating the term "Your" into its new logo, Public Interest Registry aims to demonstrate its long-standing commitment to the individuals, organizations and companies that use .ORG, .NGO and .ONG. Coupled with a symbol that is a graphic interpretation of the organization's mission of being open to the public interest, the rebranding illustrates Public Interest Registry's commitment to providing a platform that anyone, anywhere in the world can use to share their story.

"We're a small organization operating a huge domain that people around the world continue to choose year after year to engage their communities," said Brian Cute, CEO of Public Interest Registry. "As .ORG continues to expand its international footprint and with the introduction of new internationalized domain names (IDNs), .NGO and .ONG launching in the near future, we felt the timing was right to update our brand to better reflect our unwavering commitment to the public interest and to those who choose these domains to give a voice to their causes, passions and ideas."

In addition to the new company logo, Public Interest Registry redesigned logos for .ORG, .NGO and .ONG. Each logo includes the same graphic symbol found in Public Interest Registry's logo but with its own unique color, creating a color scheme of greens, blues, and oranges to reflect the diversity of different voices, perspectives and people that Public Interest Registry serves.

Over the past year, Public Interest Registry conducted extensive research to develop a design that would maintain and build upon its brand identity as an organization that is trustworthy, purposeful, spirited and collaborative.

"We wanted to have a logo that is not only relatable and understandable but also personal," said Nancy Gofus, chief operating officer of Public Interest Registry. "Public Interest Registry is where your passions, ideas, beliefs and causes come alive, and our new brand strongly reflects that as well as our mission to serve the people."

Public Interest Registry worked with The Richards Group to develop its brand voice and messaging and Moving Brands to create its new visual identity and branding assets. The organization plans to unveil a new website and other external-facing materials in the coming weeks inclusive of its new logo, icons, typography, brand colors and photography style.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
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.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets?

Further, serverless computing, cl...
