ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/24/14 -- When The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead opened its doors on January 8, 1984, it was embraced by tastemakers and trendsetters throughout the Southeast. The hotel marks its 30th anniversary in 2014 as an icon of luxury in the region, renowned for preserving longstanding traditions and introducing new experiences destined to become traditions for couples and families.
"One of the most rewarding aspects of our longevity in the city is that we now welcome generations of loyal guests," said Erwin Schinnerl, general manager. "Guests who attended our teas as children now bring their own children to experience these traditions, and a new generation of bridal couples celebrates their weddings with us."
Afternoon Tea is one of the hotel's great rituals. It was served on opening day in 1984, with loose tea steeped in Wedgwood teapots and poured through sterling silver strainers into teacups. Earl Grey, the most popular tea at the time, continues to be the most requested today, although the tea menu now includes red and green teas as well as tisanes. A commemorative 30th Anniversary Afternoon Tea -- served on the original Wedgwood china -- is added to the hotel's Afternoon Tea offerings in 2014.
The lively scene and evening entertainment in The Lobby Lounge is another enduring feature at the hotel. Guests will enjoy an expanded roster of artists in 2014.
Recently launched, Spa Level is an innovative concept featuring overnight guestrooms and suites on the same floor as the spa, with a relaxation lounge and Spa concierge. Throughout 2014, guests may indulge in "Timeless and New," a rejuvenating facial therapy created in recognition of the 30th anniversary.
In 2012 the hotel underwent a visually dramatic transformation of interior spaces, adding new design elements to traditional décor to reflect the collections of cherished heirlooms and contemporary objet d'art in fine private homes.
Throughout the 30 year history of the hotel, the emphasis on providing uncompromising personal service has remained constant.
"We strive for excellence," said Mr. Schinnerl. "We are dedicated to offering unparalleled service, while delivering a sophisticated, gracious experience desired by our guests. We look forward to the future with great excitement. Cheers to the next 30 years!"
Guests who visited The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead on January 8, 2014 were welcomed with a Mimosa or Champagne cocktail while a pianist performed on a grand piano in The Lobby.
For an even more luxurious overnight retreat, guests may reserve the Celebration of a Lifetime Package which includes a multi course dinner for two with wine pairings, prepared in-room by a private chef. Other amenities include a spa treatment for two, champagne breakfast, a bouquet of 30 long stem ivory roses and more.

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.

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.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
