Voxware will be showcasing its innovative voice management software at the Modex Show in Atlanta, Georgia on March 17-20. The company will highlight its Cloud Voice Management Suite (VMS), which has demonstrated remarkable growth since its launch 18 months ago. Voxware will be celebrating the 18 month mark of its cloud-based voice offering during a cocktail reception on Tuesday evening from 5:00-7:00 pm in Room B301.
Joining Voxware at booth #3713 will be Caroline Gibson from Hi Spec Lenses and Shawn McGhee from Hollywood Feed, who will speak to the benefits they have seen since deploying a voice warehouse solution.
Caroline Gibson will highlight the results that Hi-Spec, a distributor of eyewear products, has seen after just a few months of using Voxware. These include a reduction in training time, increased picking accuracy, and improved operational efficiency. Caroline will be giving 30 minute presentations and taking questions about the implementation at 11:00 am ET Monday – Thursday and 2:00 pm ET Monday – Wednesday.
“We started talking to Voxware at a critical point during our efforts to modernize our warehouse. They helped us make the business case for voice and showed us how the software would work for us,” said Caroline Gibson, Process & Projects Manager at Hi-Spec Lenses Ltd/ NLRX Services Ltd, Hi Spec Lenses. “We were able to quickly build up a level of trust and understanding that made us feel that we would be in good hands with Voxware.”
Shawn McGhee will discuss how Hollywood Feed, a provider of natural and holistic pet food, was able to reach ROI within 60 days and increase productivity by 33% since their implementation of Voxware’s cloud-based voice solution. He will also speak to how voice has enabled his company to easily scale without requiring additional resources. In addition to his presence at booth #3713, Shawn will also be presenting in Theater H on Monday, March 17th at 3:45 pm and Wednesday, March 19th at 12:45 pm.
“Any dollar that I have to spend on infrastructure detracts from my ability to grow my retail operation. Voice in the cloud allows small businesses to take away one of the competitive advantages that all the big guys have,” said Shawn McGhee, President of Hollywood Feed. “Voxware’s implementation could not have gone easier or faster, and I can’t emphasize that enough. If I had to do it over again, the one thing I would do is definitely contact Voxware faster and implement the technology sooner.”
“We are excited to have Caroline and Shawn join us at Modex to share their success stories, including tips, insights, and benefits they have experienced since adding voice to their warehouses,” said Keith Phillips, CEO at Voxware. “Our Cloud Voice Management Suite, for large and small customers alike, allows companies to save on capital costs and invest in other strategic areas of the business. Updating warehouses with the latest technologies is critical to providing excellent customer service and remaining competitive in the market. Caroline and Shawn are great examples of this fact.”

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

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. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
