Myrtle Beach, SC Hotel Is Among the South's Best Destinations for International Meetings

Guests From Around the World Find Inspiration Among the Attractions of the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes

MYRTLE BEACH, SC -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Myrtle Beach may enjoy an established reputation as an ideal vacation spot, but its horizons are about to expand. ConventionSouth magazine recently ranked the city among its top seven destinations for international meetings, thus opening it up to a whole new league of travelers. And when it comes to meetings in Myrtle Beach, no property can combine pleasure with productivity quite so well as the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes.

When the editors at ConventionSouth compiled their 2014 list of "The South's Best Destinations for International Meetings," they considered several criteria. Among them, the city had to offer world-class meeting spaces and lodging. And in these respects, this business hotel in Myrtle Beach easily shines.

Business travelers considering other Myrtle Beach, South Carolina hotels would be hard-pressed to find the same caliber of service available at this property. A full-service business center affords guests copy, fax and secretarial service along with overnight delivery for last-minute deadlines, while epicurean pleasures are attended to by creative and satisfying event menus. Most importantly, the property offers 45,000 square feet of flexible conference space in Myrtle Beach. Eleven meeting rooms include the Atlantic Ballroom, which can welcome up to 1,665 guests, as well as several other options that feature natural light. And, in a nod to the high-tech needs of modern travelers from around the world, state-of-the-art A/V equipment and services are available in all meeting rooms.

When delegates aren't hard at work, they can relax within the most comfortable accommodations in Myrtle Beach, SC. Cotton-rich linens, custom duvets and marble bathrooms create a luxurious atmosphere in the guest rooms. And with the beach just outside the window -- not to mention golf, tennis, swimming and more available on property -- there's never a shortage of things to do.

Groups that would like to experience this exciting destination first-hand are invited to contact the hotel's sales department directly at 1-843-692-3709 or [email protected], mention this announcement and receive a 20-percent discount off the A/V services at their next meeting.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility?

How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two.

With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
