As a supporter of design and the arts, Caesarstone was eager to partner with MOCA for the acclaimed Mike Kelley exhibition and to celebrate MOCA's 35th Anniversary. The exhibition will conclude its worldwide tour in Los Angeles after being shown at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Centre Pompidou in Paris, and MoMA PS1 in New York City.

For the Los Angeles presentation, Caesarstone is a proud sponsor of MOCA's Leadership Circle Brunch and Members' Opening Day on Sunday, March 30 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. respectively. A strong attendance is expected from the local art and cultural communities.

"Caesarstone is a big supporter of MOCA, the local LA community, and the arts," said Sagi Cohen, CEO of Caesarstone US.

The Mike Kelley exhibition Members' Opening Day will offer a first look at the highly anticipated exhibition, and will feature a special presentation of Pansy Metal/Clovered Hoof, originally created in 1989 as a collaboration between Mike Kelley and Los Angeles-based choreographer Anita Pace. Dancers Beau Dobson, Erica Carpenter, Jos McKain and Lindsey Lollie will be clad in silk scarves designed by Kelley and will perform on a fashion runway-style ramp to Orgasmatron by British heavy metal band Motorhead. There will also be a musical performance by former Sonic Youth front-woman Kim Gordon and artist Jutta Koether, both longtime friends of Kelley's.

A one-of-a-kind 16-foot Caesarstone quartz bar has been specially fabricated for MOCA's 35th Anniversary Gala and Leadership Circle Brunch, which takes place at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles. The Caesarstone bar featuring their Concrete surface, will serve as a stunning focal point for both events.

The upcoming retrospective, the largest exhibition of Kelley's work to date, will feature over 250 pieces ranging from drawings, sculptures, paintings, performance, photography, music and video, and is organized at MOCA by curator Bennett Simpson. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, Mike Kelley (1954–2012) produced a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions—which he set in relation to relentless, dark, and delirious examinations of self and society.

The exhibition will open on March 31, 2014 and run through July 28, 2014 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and MOCA Grand Avenue.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
