SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - February 05, 2014) - Since 2006, Teleperformance employees have played a vital role in improving the lives of thousands of children and families in the United States and around the world. Through their partnership with Feed The Children, Teleperformance's Citizen of the World team provides immediate relief for families in poverty and those affected by natural disasters.
In 2013, Teleperformance USA employees distributed truckloads of food, essentials and other services to thousands of children and families in 14 cities. Teleperformance employees collectively contributed nearly $670,000 in cash and donations and volunteered more than 800 hours. Teleperformance's Global Crisis Fund helped tornado victims in Moore, Oklahoma and provided immediate relief for families in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan and a devastating earthquake in the Philippines.
The dedicated employees of Teleperformance have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years to help struggling families across the United States. In the last two years alone, the employees have helped 11,200 families by sponsoring 28 truckloads of food and essentials.
"We are so thankful to Teleperformance and their employees for helping to provide food and essentials to children and their families across the country in 2013," said Erin Engelke, spokesperson for Feed The Children. "Their employee's generosity provide help and hope for thousands of struggling families. We look forward to helping more children and families with the help of Teleperformance in 2014."
More than one in five children living in United States (22 percent) is considered impoverished. The number of impoverished children living in the U.S. (16,319,909) could fill this year's Super Bowl venue at Met Life Stadium more than 197 times.
"I am humbled by the generosity put forth by our employees to help those less fortunate and in need," said Brent Welch, Teleperformance, CEO, English World and Asia Pacific. "This past year, our employees collectively contributed more than $1.5 million to a variety of Citizen of the World initiatives. However, we are particularly proud of our association with Feed the Children to support the organization's wonderful efforts."

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.

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. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
