With Google Business View, customers can now explore, walk-through, and truly experience a business like never before. By offering an immersive, interactive virtual tour of their business the program aims to give customers a better sense of the layout, decor, and beauty of a business interior.

Recognized and awarded by Google as their first Top-Performing Company in New York, Maureen believes, "It is an incredible marketing tool. With the world renowned Street View no longer being limited to streets alone, we want to do our best to help local businesses in New York leverage this amazing feature to influence the decision making process of their potential customers, increase online exposure and visibility, and further enhance their Google listing."

The new feature offered by Google is suited to just about any type of business, including spas, warehouses, dental offices, medical facilities, cafes, hotels, bars, restaurants, auto dealerships, design and furniture showrooms, office spaces, and retailers, you name it. The team of Google Trusted Photographers can be seen all over the world, harnessing the immense potential of this program that enables visitors to take a 360-degree virtual tour of local businesses using Google's Street View technology. Published and hosted on Google+ Local pages, Google Maps, and other Google properties. With easy-to-use html snippets or Maps APIs, businesses can also link to these images from their own business website, thereby attracting potential customers who visit their website. 

Expressing the effectiveness of the program for her business, Laura Anderson of Resource Furniture said, "We're not on the ground floor, so our Street View tour is a great way to give customers a sneak peak of our showroom."

An extension of Google Business View also includes Hotel Business Views. Based on the results of the Hotel Pilot conducted during July-December 2013, Google will be investing in heavily expanding Maps Business Views to Hotels.

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
Docker is hot. However, as Docker container use spreads into more mature production pipelines, there can be issues about control of Docker images to ensure they are production-ready. Is a promotion-based model appropriate to control and track the flow of Docker images from development to production? In his session at DevOps Summit, Fred Simon, Co-founder and Chief Architect of JFrog, will demonstrate how to implement a promotion model for Docker images using a binary repository, and then show h...
The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
