STREAMSONG, Fla., Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamsong® Resort's centerpiece – a 216-room luxury Lodge – officially opened today, unlocking the full experience of the property's 16,000 natural acres and setting the stage for Streamsong to become the discerning traveler's destination of choice. Miles away from typical Florida beach hotels or theme park resorts, Streamsong features critically-acclaimed golf, world-class bass fishing, a sporting clays facility, a unique grotto-style spa, exceptional food offerings, stunning vistas, wildlife and more in a natural Florida setting.
"Our mission at Streamsong is to redefine what guests, particularly golfers from all over the world, should expect from a luxury resort," said Richard Mogensen, Streamsong's general manager. "With the opening of the Lodge, our guests can now experience this incredible place in its entirety. From a breathtaking natural environment to luxurious accommodations, fantastic dining and incomparable guest service, Streamsong will no doubt emerge as one of the most unique destinations in the United States and the world."
At the resort, guests can experience Streamsong Red, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, and Streamsong Blue, designed by Renaissance Golf Design (Tom Doak), which are known as "must plays" among serious golfers. In their first year of operation, Streamsong Red and Blue topped GOLF magazine's list of the "Best New Courses You Can Play" and were recently ranked as the 12th and 14th best resort courses in the United States by Golfweek.com, among other accolades.
Streamsong guests can also take guided excursions on the property's prolific bass fishing lakes; explore bird-watching and wildlife along a tranquil nature trail; test their aim at the resort's sporting clays facility; indulge in European spa treatments; and take a dip in the lakeside infinity pool.
At the Lodge's three restaurants, guests can enjoy a culinary journey with dishes to tempt every palate. They can savor contemporary Italian cuisine like osso buco, stone oven-roasted duck breast and chicken involtini at SottoTerraTM; indulge in traditional Floridian comfort foods like Apalachicola oysters, conch chowder and buttermilk fried chicken at P2O5TM; or sample pub-style small plates including sriracha glazed chicken skewers, warm blue cheese potato chips and buffalo pork rinds at Fragmentary BlueTM.
Expert in hosting small executive gatherings, larger groups and private special events, the resort includes more than 18,000 square feet of flexible meeting space as well as unique settings like a rooftop meeting room and terrace, covered breezeway and 40,000 square feet of distinctive outdoor venues for memorable events.
Award-winning architect Alberto Alfonso designed Streamsong's Lodge to showcase and celebrate the property's natural environment. Guestrooms and suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass and offer stunning views of the property's lakes and surroundings. AcquaPietraTM, a 7,000-square-foot grotto-style spa with seven unique pool experiences and nine treatment rooms, is a metaphor for the prehistoric seas that once covered the region. Fragmentary Blue, the Lodge's rooftop lounge, provides the perfect spot for incomparable sunrise and sunset viewing and stargazing.
The property's golf Clubhouse – which opened in January 2013 and is also designed by Alfonso Architects – features banquet space with sweeping water views, 12 guestrooms, Restaurant Fifty-NineTM - a steak and seafood-themed restaurant, and a bar, lounge, and golf shop.
Located between Orlando and Tampa, Streamsong is convenient to two international airports and six regional airports accommodating private aircraft. To learn more about the resort or book a reservation, visit www.streamsongresort.com.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
