O'FALLON, IL--(Marketwired - February 13, 2014) - FRA Financial Group Founder and Chief Leadership Officer Joe RoosEvans announced that Ken Estrada had been named Chief Marketing Officer for FRA Financial Group. Estrada, an industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience, will lead the marketing efforts for FRA Financial Group and all affiliated companies.

"Ken was the person we've been looking for to fill this important role in our company," said Joe RoosEvans, FRA Founder and Chief Leadership Officer. "With his diverse industry experience, leadership, knowledge and vision, Ken is the consummate Chief Marketing Officer, and I'm glad he's on our team."

Estrada has worked in the Financial Services industry specifically in strategic development on the sales, marketing and operational side. His primary strengths have been in creating and developing distribution teams.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud.
