SAN DIEGO, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Together, everyone achieves more. That's the philosophy the San Diego Marriott Del Mar has always fostered when hosting conferences, board meetings, conventions and retreats in its 12,078 square feet of event space.
But in 2014, the Marriott hotel wants to take San Diego Del Mar meetings to the next level with a new promotion that puts an "I" in team – at least from a technology standpoint.
Meeting planners who book 75 cumulative rooms at the Del Mar hotel over select value dates before April 30, 2014, will receive a complimentary iPad mini loaded with the new Marriott Meeting Services app. When utilized in tandem, the tools will allow planners, CEOs and/or company owners to control every aspect of their meetings from the palm of their hands while keeping event information organized in one secure place.
"The new Marriott app is the future of meeting services and keeps organizations connected to our professional planners 24/7 from at least three days before their event until the final attendee departs," said Brian Findley general manager of the Del Mar hotel. "Whether you need coffee refills, room temperature changes or more seating, the real-time app puts meeting management at your fingertips. Our concierges will work promptly to exceed your expectations on the request."
The iPad offer adds extra value to the Del Mar hotel's deluxe accommodations while emphasizing the importance of technology in today's event spaces. The San Diego Marriott Del Mar boasts 14 Del Mar meeting rooms with high-speed Internet access and quality audio and visual equipment and offers access to a full-service business center equipped with computers, a copy machine, fax and overnight delivery and pickup services. The largest of the Del Mar meeting rooms, the Grand Ballroom, features 7,290 square feet that can accommodate up to 1,040 guests for receptions and 500 for banquets. Professional event managers are prepared to assist with some of the heavy lifting when it comes to planning menus with everything from simple coffee and snack breaks to elaborate themed galas with advance notice.
Conference-goers also can partake in breakfast, lunch or dinner at Arterra, the onsite Del Mar restaurant serving American cuisine. The eatery's award-winning food and wine program has been recognized by epicureans and critics as one of the premier dining destinations in San Diego. The sushi bar at Arterra, open for dinner, offers a wide variety of dishes including shrimp tempura, sashimi, shiitake mushrooms and specialty rolls.
The Del Mar, CA, hotel offers an online guide for businesses to start their event planning early by calculating costs and setting up floor plans for maximum comfort and efficiency.
After long strategic planning sessions, business professionals can retreat to one of the 281 comfortable guest rooms and three luxury suites at one of the premier Del Mar, CA, hotels. Tech-friendly rooms boast 32-inch flat-screen TVs with premium movie channels and iHome docking stations to keep professionals entertained when they aren't working. High-speed Internet access allows business travelers to stay well-connected to work, while spacious work desks with ergonomic chairs provide all of the comforts of home. Irons and ironing boards, coffeemakers and two phones with voicemail capabilities are among other amenities guests will appreciate in their well-appointed rooms. When it comes to retiring for the night, the Del Mar hotel's thick pillow-top beds with down comforters, custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and plenty of down and feather pillows will lull guests into a sound night's sleep.
For information about booking a meeting at the Del Mar hotel, contact the sales team at 1-858-369-6004 or visit www.ipadpromotion.marriott.com for more details.

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...

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
