CHANDIGARH, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Business, as it turns out, doesn't have to be boring. When a meeting is held in an exotic location and within elegant rooms where the ceilings soar almost as high as a group's collective imagination, or a chef is on-hand to fuel the great minds gathered at the table, well, work can become downright exciting. And this is precisely the thinking behind the new business package available at the JW Marriott Hotel Chandigarh.
As one of the most state-of-the-art business hotels in Chandigarh, India, this property would attract meeting planners even without promotional packages. A vast 16,500 square feet of meeting space unfolds indoors and out in the most creative of ways. In The Living Room, for example, an open kitchen -- replete with a chef ready to whip up a snack of one's choice -- open foyer and lounging area provide space where guests can relax, take breaks and refuel. (The kitchen is generously stocked with beverages, health bars, bite-size pastries, sandwiches and fresh fruit.) Productivity is further enhanced by the meeting rooms' tech-savvy features like a large, drop-down screen with lift projector; a surround-sound A/V system; and wiring for both cable and wireless Internet.
For those who prefer more traditional meeting spaces, the hotel outshines other conference halls in Chandigarh once again. Its Grand Ballroom features soaring ceilings at six meters, a dimension matched by the vast square footage. (It spans more than 6,000 square feet to accommodate up to 900 people.) Once again, cutting-edge technology that includes A/V equipment; wireless, high-speed Internet access; and multimedia conferencing facilities is available to ensure the success of every event.
No matter which room a group selects, everyone can be assured of a seamless experience, thanks to the on-site event planners who provide 24-hour service.
Enhancing these already appealing spaces is the hotel's latest business package, which includes an extensive menu, a 20-percent discount on A/V requirements, conference stationery, floral arrangements and deals on beverage packages. Rates are based on group size according to the following format:
- INR 1400++ for 30 to 50 guests
- INR 1300++ for 51 to 100 guests
- INR 1200++ for 100+ guests
In addition to offering top-notch business facilities, the hotel is near all the best places to visit in Chandigarh, so guests can look forward to squeezing in some sightseeing during downtime. As one of the few five-star hotels near the Panchkula Golf Club, for example, the property also puts visitors close by to the Zakir Rose Garden and Sukhna Lake Chandigarh.
At the JW Marriott Hotel Chandigarh, business has officially become fun.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
