RALEIGH, N.C., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- / Continental Who's Who/ Dr. Kimberly Juanell Pettaway Willis is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional as a result of her role as Founder and CEO of Kolorz of Cancer presented by Cor'Rae, LLC (KOC), which specializes in providing awareness of and information about various types of cancers and the ribbon colors associated with those cancer types.
Kolorz of Cancer presented by Cor'Rae provides information about various cancers and their ribbon colors, symptoms of different cancers, and more information is provided at events by guest speakers with knowledgeable cancer research and experience in their perspective fields. One of the most important and distinguished elements of KOC is the CEO wanted to focus on the different ribbon colors for each different cancer, hence the name of the business and the logo for the company. Each letter of "Kolorz" represents a different type of cancer; Lavender (all cancers), Pink (Breast Cancer), Multi-Colored (All), Lime Green (Lymphoma), Blue (Colon Cancer), and the Zebra Stripes (Carcinoid).
Dr. Willis' focus and mission is to plan and execute many informative awareness events, in different cities, to discuss the purpose of Kolorz of Cancer, recognize survivors of any type of cancer and anyone affected by cancer; Dr. Willis has recently been affected (11.24.2013) by cancer with the death of her 35 year old cousin-in-law to breast cancer. The founder is able to raise funds through ticket sales of events, merchandise sales, and book sales; more devotionals focusing on specific cancers are in the works now. Dr. Kimberly Willis uses these funds by donating to different cancer research missions, giving to cancer charities and smaller research companies in various areas, and presenting families of cancer patients (or a cancer patient without a family). These donations, especially to the families of cancer patients and/or actual cancer patients with limited family support, are extremely helpful to pay for medications, bills, or anything…just to make their lives a little better. The First Annual Kolorz of Cancer presented by Cor'Rae Donation Ceremony was held January 2013. The Second Annual Ceremony will be at a later date in 2014.
In November of 2012, Dr. Willis partnered with her Aunt and client, Lisa Pettaway Whitaker, her beloved "sister," LaQuanta P Knight, and AuthorHouse Publishing to create a powerful poetry devotional titled "Cancer…Teardrops Beneath the Kolorz of the Rainbow~ A Poetry Devotional to Uplift the Heart, Mind, and Soul," which is a book of poetry to reach anyone who has been affected by cancer. Upon flipping the pages, readers may relate the text to their life experiences with cancer. An especially unique aspect of the book is that after reading each poem, the readers are encouraged to write their own daily devotional. Reflecting on the development of the devotional, Dr. Willis stated, "We (Kimberly, Lisa and LaQuanta) were excited to develop a product that was based on passion, although it was an extremely tedious process, BUT the vision was completed and published."
Dr. Willis gave her client the task to write all poetry for the devotional while she was responsible for all editing, designing the cover, writing all original quotes after each poem, as well as writing the introduction and conclusion of the book. The cancer devotional was dedicated (months before her death) to the strength and fight of Mrs. LaQuanta Pittman Knight, Kimberly's "Sissy Pooh" /cousin-in-law who was more of a sister, who passed five days before her 36th birthday. LaQuanta was the wife of Dr. Willis' first cousin, but always referred to as her brother Kentay Knight, with whom she shares a very close bond. Cancer…we need to find a cure.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

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.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
