PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/14 -- Time travel has long fascinated the human race. Whether people look forward or back, there's a sense that breaking free of time's ceaseless march would make life just a little bit better. And while successful time machines have yet to be developed, the future can in fact be glimpsed at the Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Marriott Hotel. Its newly renovated meeting rooms integrate cutting-edge technologies, service and style for a meeting experience unlike anything seen before.
Of the hotel's 12 conference rooms near the Paris CDG airport, three have been renovated according to Marriott's signature Next Generation Meeting Room concept. The principles behind the change stem from extensive research on how business is best conducted today. Those findings led to a holistic approach to meeting planning where, instead of focusing on rates and layouts, meeting planners can consider their individual goals and then tap Marriott's extensive services for ideas, suggestions and available spaces to achieve them.
At this Paris airport hotel with a dozen conference rooms, that approach has yielded impressive results. For starters, seating involves more than endless rows of uncomfortable chairs. Instead, clusters of cushy seats invite small groups to gather and brainstorm, while the traditional boardroom setup has been upgraded to feature sumptuous chairs and a spacious table that put delegates in their best creative space.
Modern color palettes sweep over the reimagined rooms in soothing neutrals that are enlivened by pops of greens, oranges and yellows. Natural light pours into each room for a refreshing atmosphere. And state-of-the-art technology like video conferencing, smart whiteboards, projection walls, docking stations and touch-screen controls not only enhance each meeting's productivity, but also set this property apart from other 4-star hotels in Roissy.
The redesigned meeting rooms nicely complement Marriott's forward-thinking services. In addition to a Meeting Services App that allows planners to make changes and requests in real time as the meeting is underway, the Meetings Imagined platform opens up a treasure trove of ideas, tips and examples to event coordinators. Meeting planners can simply visit MeetingsImagined.com to cull images, suggestions, trends and customizable options based on the specific objective of their event.
The newly renovated meeting rooms at this property may not be a time machine per se, but they do serve as a window to what's possible. And once glance at that reveals a future that is beyond bright.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
