Dan Marino Foundation and Panera Bread Team Up and Score a "Touchdown for Autism!"

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/14 -- The Dan Marino Foundation and Panera Bread will team up to celebrate Autism Awareness Month and score a "Touchdown for Autism!" The Touchdown for Autism campaign will be hosted at 29 Pittsburgh, PA Panera Bread Cafés.

Panera Bread will feature an exclusive shortbread "Football" cookie that will only be available in cafés from April 1st-April 7th, 2014. These one-of-a kind cookies will represent the colors of Dan's college alma mater, The University of Pittsburgh. The cookies will be sold individually or by the "Marino Dozen," (13 cookies). Proceeds from each cookie will benefit the Dan Marino Foundation and Wesley Spectrum Services.

"We are very appreciative of Panera Bread's commitment to our community and The Dan Marino Foundation. Partnering with businesses, like Panera, makes all the difference in creating positive awareness and support." said Dan Marino, Chairman of the Dan Marino Foundation.

Over the last three years, with the support of the community, Panera Bread Pittsburgh cafes have raised nearly $100,000 for autism and other developmental disabilities.

"This year is a new partnership, but still an opportunity to impact the people of Pittsburgh," said Sam Covelli, Owner Operator, Covelli Enterprises/Panera Bread. "We are very excited about being able to raise awareness and make a difference in the Pittsburgh community through our partnership with the Dan Marino Foundation."

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
