BAKU, AZERBAIJAN -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- If the city of Baku is where history and the future intersect, then the JW Marriott Hotel Absheron Baku represents the splendor such a marriage can produce. Its lavish appointments, contemporary aesthetic and personalized service have created a new benchmark for hospitality in the area. And with the arrival of its new General Manager, Martin Kleinmann, another successful match has been made.
Kleinmann began his career 17 years ago as an apprentice at a luxury hotel in Stuttgart, Germany where his enthusiasm and dedication helped him quickly climb the ranks. Today, he's applying that same passion for hospitality to this exciting new role.
"Joining the JW Marriott Hotel Absheron Baku is a tremendous opportunity to share what I've learned and to grow as a professional," Kleinmann says. "I look forward to continuing the success of the hotel by making every guest's visit one to remember."
Kleinmann's arrival at this Baku hotel represents a perfect culmination of his experience and interest. Having successfully held senior executive positions at luxury properties around the world -- including The Barclay InterContinental New York, The Imperial in New Delhi and as a General Manager for The Ritz-Carlton properties in Bahrain, Cairo, Istanbul as well as Shenzhen -- Kleinmann brings a seasoned, global perspective to his new position.
While this luxury hotel in Baku has only been open for two years, it has already established a glittering reputation. Its ideal location within the historic part of town puts visitors near the business and fashion districts for an experience that encompasses the many faces of Baku. And with 21,528 square feet of inspired meeting space, four restaurants, a transcendental spa and 243 sumptuous, Baku, Azerbaijan hotel rooms, guests are poised to experience a modern-day oasis under Kleinmann's enthusiastic leadership.

Four restaurants, which range from Asian specialties, to Italian masterpieces, to swanky cocktails, ensure guests can savor a variety of dishes during their stay. If travelers arrive for work, they can look forward to enjoying productive meetings within the hotel's 14 daylight-infused event spaces, or the stunning, Sharg Zali ballroom whose panoramic views are uninterrupted by structural pillars. A full-service spa on the 21st floor, a state-of-the-art fitness center and an indoor swimming pool on the hotel's roof provide diverse methods for relaxation and wellness.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
