Founded in 1999, Barefoot was officially the first browser-based vacation rental system on the market.  They are currently one of the few systems to offer customer relationship management (CRM) software, social media, document management and the most innovative work order system on the market.  They have also attracted more than 20,000 vacation rentals properties, and offer online availability, rates and booking options.

Thanks to the new integrated two-way interface, Barefoot Technologies will be able to publish comprehensive rental details with online rates and availability for ResortsandLodges.com's nearly 10 million guests to book online.  This two-way interface offers Barefoot's customers a new channel to attract new travelers and will save the property owners time so they don't have to individually update rates and availabilities.

"We have an endless pursuit to ensure our travel audience is able to access the largest collection of accommodations across the world and be able to book them online. This ability will offer travelers the chance to create truly memorable vacation experiences. In order to meet our traveler's demand we are connecting with properties where the availability isn't typically sold on travel sites we may have become familiar with; Expedia, Priceline, Hotels.com and Travelocity. Our partnership with Barefoot Technologies is very exciting; we will be able to offer our nearly 10 million guests access to book real-time availability with more than 20,000 unique rental properties across North America," said Ryan Bailey, CEO of ResortsandLodges.com.

"Our customers are always interested in connecting with shopping sites to generate new customers and it is difficult to do so with major OTAs like Expedia, Kayak and Hotels.com because of their traditionally high commission rates.  It is exciting to find a company like ResortsandLodges.com that offers a channel that is more feasible for resort and property managers," said Ed Ulmer, President of Barefoot Technologies.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
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.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
