WealthEngine is working to meet growing demands for wealth intelligence and marketing services in an environment of increased competition in the non-profit and commercial sectors. To meet growing customer needs and expand the value delivered to users, the company plans to invest heavily in major areas of its business, including: upgraded SaaS platform technology, improved "FindWealth8" interface, expansion of its' WealthEngine Consulting Services, heightened self-service capabilities, real-time data and analytics, and greater customer support for marketing automation.  Supported by an expansion of its API, the company is also targeting significant growth in its partner network.

To support WealthEngine's strategy to extend its top position in the industry and exploit emerging trends, the company has added three new executives to fill critical roles:

  • Bobby Yazdani joins as Executive Chairman. In this role, Mr. Yazdani will be responsible for strategic business development and implementation. A former executive with Oracle Corporation, Mr. Yazdani is also founder of Saba Software and an investor in Google, Salesforce, Dropbox and Klout.
  • Peggy Padalino joins as Chief Revenue Officer. In this role, Ms. Padalino will be responsible for sales, professional services and customer care. Having worked in customer service and sales capacities at companies like Avectra, CareerBuilder and Sybase, Ms. Padalino brings more than 20 years of experience to WealthEngine. 
  • Mike Lees joins as Chief Marketing Officer. In this role, Mr. Lees will be responsible for positioning WealthEngine as the go-to source for marketers and fundraisers seeking information on the "mass affluent", HNW and Ultra-HNW demographics. Mr. Lees has led marketing initiatives at companies including Cerebra, webMethods, Software AG and more recently, Intralinks.

"Demands on the resources of the affluent are increasing and traditional approaches for marketing to them are rapidly becoming outdated. Simply knowing a prospects' net worth is no longer enough, and marketing to a mass group based on demographics and zip code alone is ineffective. Marketers and fundraisers need to know more -- they need to go beyond wealth to understand their prospects' personal interests and passions. We are investing heavily in our technology and operations to evolve our service that helps clients design effective marketing and donor outreach programs," said Tony Glowacki, CEO & President of WealthEngine. "I am also thrilled to welcome Bobby, Peggy and Mike to the WealthEngine leadership team.  Together, their expertise will allow us to provide our customers in the US and UK with access to highly-effective intelligence tools," added Mr. Glowacki.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done?

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...
