NEW YORK, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recording group Full Force partners with Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, to make their return to the airwaves with the arrival of not one but two new singles. The tracks herald the legendary R&B/hip-hop vocal band/production team's upcoming new album, Full Force: With Love From Our Friends, which is slated for release later this year.
First up is the electrifying ballad, "All Cried Out (Feat. Tisha Campbell-Martin)," which has just premiered at Urban AC radio outlets nationwide. Full Force debuted the new track – the original version of which was featured on 1985's RIAA platinum certified r&b, pop, hip-hop, dance classic, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force – with an exclusive visit to New York City's world famous 107.5 WBLS FM. Full Force surprised everyone when they brought Tisha Campbell-Martin herself into the radio station.
As if that weren't enough, a soaring second single from Full Force: With Love From Our Friends, entitled "I Feel Good, I Look Good, I'm God Good (Feat. Faith Evans with Sheila E and The God Good Choir & Children)," has also just impacted Gospel and Inspirational radio across the country, before hitting Urban AC outlets later this spring.
Full Force: With Love From Our Friends is an extraordinary celebration of Full Force's thirty years in the music industry, its broad range of sounds and styles spotlighting the Brooklyn-based group's still-distinctive approach towards contemporary r&b, soul, pop, hip-hop, and dance. Inspired by Quincy Jones' Back On The Block classic, this new album is dedicated to Full Force member Paul Anthony and his cancer champion bone marrow initiative. Paul says, "This project is my musical re-birth." (For more info please visit www.Palivelife.org)
The album is a self-described "True Skool All-Star Project" bringing together an astonishing line-up of special guests. In addition to the aforementioned Tisha Campbell-Martin, Faith Evans, and Sheila E, Full Force: With Love From Our Friends sees stellar contributions from fans, friends and longtime associates like Samantha Fox, Raphael Saadiq, Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shante, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Regina Belle, Cece Peniston, UTFO, Tevin Campbell, Cheryl Pepsii Riley, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Flavor Flav, Shanice, Howard Hewett, Force MDs, Blair Underwood, Vivica A. Fox, and many more.
Full Force – that is, Paul Anthony, Bowlegged Lou, Curt-T-T, J-R aka Shy Shy, Baby Gerry, and B-Fine – stands tall among the most talented and successful musical collectives in the annals of modern pop, r&b, hip-hop, and dance. Writers, producers, and performers all, the pioneering group is behind a seemingly endless string of genre-busting, groundbreaking classics, spanning UTFO's seminal "Roxanne Roxanne" and the blockbuster Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force, collaborations with icons like James Brown, Selena, and Bob Dylan, and writing and/or producing major tracks by such superstars as Rihanna, Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake & Nsync, Jill Scott, The Black Eyed Peas, and countless others. Through it all, Full Force has remained a sensation all their own, offering up such top-charting R&B favorites as "Aint My Type of Hype, Alice I Want You Just For Me "Unselfish Lover," and "Temporary Love Thing," as well as starring roles as the big bad comedic bullies in the blockbuster film comedies House Party and House Party 2.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

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...

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
