Funds Raised to Help Team Member Donated by Global Travel Network Utah

Global Travel Network Utah is proud to announce that it has contributed to a fund-raising campaign to help a relative of a marketing department member in dire need.

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Travel Network Utah is an industry-leading vacation provider with a marketing department that is focused on being better community partners and corporate citizens. Throughout the year, GTN Utah donates to a variety of causes. Global Travel Network Utah strongly believes in many core values, including that of a corporate responsibility to help those less fortunate and to assist those who are in need.

Recently, a family member related to a Global Travel Network Utah employee in the marketing department desperately needed an operation to replace a kidney. The family member had been battling kidney cancer for a long time. The gentleman is the main provider for his family, which includes his wife, two daughters, and mother. One of his daughters was willing to donate her kidney to her father, but she unfortunately was not a match.

The gentleman is on dialysis treatments for nine hours a night, and is hoping to switch to a different form of treatment. Unfortunately, his condition does impact him in all aspects of his life, and he was struggling to provide for his family. He hopes to increase awareness about the Kidney Swap Program, which is a transplant program that is implemented in many hospitals around the country.

With the help of Global Travel Network Utah, the Booster campaign, which was run online, was able to raise nearly $2,500 for the family to help with their food expenses and rent while the gentleman waits and hopes for a kidney that will be a match to his body's antibodies.

GTN Utah is proud to have aided this extremely deserving family in helping them to pay for their daily expenses and rent costs. Global Travel Network Utah pledges to continue to donate to worthy causes and initiatives throughout the year of 2014 as part of its good corporate citizenship program, and hopes that its charitable contributions will improve and change the lives of those in the community and around the world.

Because of these efforts, the company's marketing department has thrived, thanks to a positive mentality shift for its team of dedicated telemarketers. Prospects for this luxury vacation club recently faced challenges in respect to the details of their offers, but with a recent effort to clear up any miscommunications, along with positive press, these issues have been resolved. This has freed the company up to partake in more charitable fundraising, rather than spending valuable prospecting time on resolving complaints.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development ...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Part...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
