Through the crowdfunding platform, RocketHub, Spooner will attempt to raise money to acquire his next top international mount through a source of revenue that has proved successful for new ventures, game developers and movie producers. Describing his intentions on the RocketHub website, Richard states that he "will select the horse from prospects he has located in Europe after a trial, and a full vetting. Once purchased, Richard Spooner will compete with this horse both nationally, in the United States, and internationally, Europe, Canada, and other countries. The goal is to acquire a horse that will soon be competing at the Grand Prix level."

So what is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding, alternately termed crowd financing, equity crowdfunding, crowd equity, crowd-sourced fundraising, is the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. Crowdfunding is used in support of a wide variety of activities, including disaster relief, citizen journalism, support of artists by fans, political campaigns, start-up company funding, motion picture promotion, free software development, inventions development, scientific research, and civic projects.

Top game developing companies such as Ouya, inXile Entertainment and Obsidian Entertainment raised an impressive $16.78 Million collectively, in crowdfunded capital. Game developers and technology start-ups have been the most popular and successful companies to use crowdfunding but non-for-profit organizations have also used the new-age capital source to also raise money for much-needed causes.

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters.

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.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage.
