Hotels in Barcelona, Spain Fill Up Quickly With Travelers Flocking to the City's Events

Concert-Goers and Trade Show Delegates Alike Enjoy the Stylish Hospitality of the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel This Season

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Barcelona routinely attracts many visitors for many reasons. Its beaches, museums and architecture top a very long list of things to see and do, and that list is getting even longer during the next few months. From concerts, to trade shows, to cruises, Barcelona has it all, and only one central Barcelona hotel can keep pace with the city's event calendar: the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel.

One of the biggest attractions in Barcelona, Spain this winter is the Depeche Mode concert. Equal parts high-energy and nostalgic, the concert, which is part of the band's Delta Machine tour, will rock out at the Palau Sant Jordi on January 15, 2014. Two weeks later, Michael Bublé will also be performing at the Palau Sant Jordi on January 30, 2014. Concert-goers can start the evening off with tapas and drinks at the hotel's CUIT Bar & Lounge before singing along to all their favorite songs at the shows.

Barcelona doesn't just attract revelers, however. This historic city will also welcome two major trade fairs this spring: The premier mobile-industry event, the Mobile World Congress, will welcome thousands of communication-technology experts between February 24 and 27, 2014; and Alimentaria's trade show, which is among the biggest for the food-and-beverage industry, will get underway between March 31 and April 3.

This elegant hotel in Barcelona is ideally suited for such corporate travelers. The fresh, clean-lined lobby invites guests to congregate before or after meetings, spend some time on the computer or relax after a long day. The fitness center offers a healthy way to unwind after a day of meetings, while the CUIT Bar & Lounge is a perfect venue to relax with colleagues and friends. Guests can anticipate sampling a traditional tapas-style cuisine of Spanish Platillos, tucking in to the finest cuts of USDA-certificated Black Angus beef, and enjoying signature cocktails while discussing the highlights of the day's events.

As spring gradually blooms, so too do additional travel opportunities. Easter arrives during some of the best beach months of the year in 2014, and guests can anticipate a package that lets them take advantage of the momentous holiday along with the enviable temperatures. And with the Port de Barcelona close by, travelers can enjoy the convenience of staying in some of the most beautiful hotel rooms in Barcelona before setting sail. Accordingly, visitors will soon be able to capitalize on a package geared toward cruise-ship passengers. That long list of things to see and do, it seems, shows no sign of trailing off.

To learn more about upcoming packages, travelers may contact the hotel at 34-93-2723810 or visit www.renaissancebarcelonahotel.com.

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

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? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
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...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
