Brothers Mark and Jon Sider created the drink which combines the best of sports nutrition, health and the pursuit of continuous improvement. Greater Than contains all natural ingredients, is low calorie and has twice the electrolyte content of mainstream sports drinks. The brand has enjoyed explosive growth since its introduction in 2010 in a single Chicago area store. Today, Greater Than is available in more than 200 locations as well as on-line from Amazon.com. In support of its expanded distribution and growth, the company has refreshed their brand, their formulations and their packaging based on consumer feedback.

The redesigned package is now topped with CSI’s Extra-Lok V 38mm OD closure. This cap has been optimally designed to be the lightest weight two-lead, 38mm closure in the market while maintaining performance excellence. Co-owner and co-developer Mark Sider said, “We wanted to emphasize our GREATER THAN branding to our consumers with our message on both sides of the package and on the closure; CSI enabled us to do that. In addition, CSI quickly facilitated color matching and has been very flexible in meeting all of our delivery requirements.”

The startup company founders researched other closure suppliers and made their choice based in part on CSI’s experience and industry-wide reputation. “CSI’s technical knowledge and application problem-solving are impressive,” said Mark. “We sought an experienced partner to ensure we would have a trouble-free national rollout.”

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes.

Docker containers have brought great opportunities to shorten the deployment process through continuous integration and the delivery of applications and microservices.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
