"We are committed to making safe, effective, delicious, and seriously friendly products at hello, and we don't think there's anything friendly about testing on animals," said Craig Dubitsky, founder and friendly CEO of hello products. "We think our four-legged head of HR and Chief Greeting Officer, Harbor, would agree. We are extremely proud of our supplier partners for meeting the Leaping Bunny standards on the non-testing of their ingredients on animals, and we thank the folks at Leaping Bunny for doing what they do, and for certifying hello products as cruelty-free." 

"We are very excited to welcome hello products into the Leaping Bunny Program. Their certification means that consumers have more choices to purchase cruelty-free dental care products at stores nationwide," said Kim Paschen, communications manager of the Leaping Bunny Program. "And we are happy to see that safe, effective dental care can be accomplished without the need for animal testing."

hello successfully received Leaping Bunny cruelty-free designation after a detailed review to ensure the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals is upheld throughout the entire manufacturing process.

Since 1996, the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program has certified more than 540 companies as being cruelty-free. The Leaping Bunny Program is internationally recognized and used throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

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.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

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. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
