AMSTERDAM, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Booking.com (http://www.booking.com), the largest brand in the global online accommodation sector, has been recognized by The Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) for its first U.S. advertising campaign, 'Booking.yeah', which launched in 2013. On the heels of this prestigious recognition, the company has just released its next brand campaign, this time putting the spotlight on Booking.com's vast range of accommodation.
"We're proud that the Adrian Awards have recognized the Booking.yeah campaign and our commitment to helping U.S. travelers experience the 'delight of the right' with their accommodations," said Paul Hennessy, Booking.com's Chief Marketing Officer. "With more than 25 different varieties and 400,000 properties in 193 countries, Booking.com has the best accommodation offering in the world. As the campaign continues, we look forward to bringing these Booking.yeah moments to even more American travelers from coast to coast."
Booking.com's new 2014 campaign will reaffirm its dedication to delighting consumers and raise the bar for travelers, sharing how even the smallest detail in their accommodation can deliver a "Booking Epic" experience.
The first TVC of the campaign, 'Booking Epic', dramatizes the quirky things that people love about their accommodation stays, whether it's a complimentary breakfast, the cashew nuts in the minibar, the "plushocity" of the carpet, or an incredibly powerful hair dryer.
"Finding the right accommodation isn't just about the killer room and the killer view. We know there are a thousand little and often weird details that cause travelers across the globe to glow," said joint Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam Creative Directors Genevieve Hoey and Zach Watkins.
The 'Booking Epic' advertising campaign was created by Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam and will air across the U.S. from January 13, 2014.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

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.

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...
