MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/21/14 -- Fuego Enterprises, Inc. (OTC Pink: FUGI), Road Scholar, and OnCuba Magazine are pleased to announce their collaboration to offer educational travel programs to Cuba with an emphasis on the rise of free enterprise. Recent government reforms are now allowing individuals within Cuba the opportunity to form and openly operate new business ventures for the first time since 1959. Participants on this special travel adventure will be among the first to experience Cuba as it balances between the old era of restricting business and the new era of supporting business creation.
Road Scholar is authorized to operate and offer cross-cultural, lifelong learning experiences to Cuba under a People-to-People educational license issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC License #CT-19201-2.). During exclusive people-to-people activities, participants will meet the Cuban people who are taking these pioneering steps toward practicing free enterprise in Cuba today, and learn first-hand the challenges and opportunities that these business entrepreneurs face each day.
Highlights of the program include:
- Visiting the International School of Film and TV and a recording studio to speak with Cuban students, instructors and musicians, to experience their creative energy and to examine the opportunities for these artists to export their art.
- Dining at several privately owned paladars, independently operated restaurants, to meet with owners and staff to discuss both the opportunities and challenges of operating a restaurant in Cuba.
- Traveling to the new deep water container port in Mariel to meet the architectural and construction team, to learn about the project and to examine the impact of a deep water port for Cuba, and the countries that trade with Cuba.
- Visiting Habanos, the leader of Cuba's cigar industry, to meet with cigar experts for a discussion on the business of marketing Cuban cigars internationally and how this will change if and when the U.S. embargo ends.
- Exploring a sugar refinery to meet with the managers and staff of the sugar mill to learn about the history of sugar production, and to discuss present-day operations and how they might evolve.
Hugo M. Cancio, President & CEO of Fuego Enterprises, Inc., states that "We at OnCuba Magazine are extremely excited to be working with such a prestigious organization such as Road Scholar. Cuba is changing, it is transforming itself -- these are exciting times and we want to invite the business and investment community to come to Cuba and discover a hidden treasure, an emerging market full of infinite possibilities."
"Road Scholar is pleased and proud to be working with OnCuba Magazine to take people to Cuba to help bring ideas to light." Steven Lembke, Vice President of Road Scholar, notes that "The rise of free enterprise in Cuba represents a cultural and economic shift that will transform the country, and we encourage all with an interest in business, travel and Cuba to join us."

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

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. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
