Cassidy Turley established its Atlanta presence in 2011 with the acquisition of Carter's brokerage and property management operations.

"Lisa is a great addition to our Atlanta team, and I look forward to working with her as we continue to grow and thrive in the Southeast," said Doug Brandon, Cassidy Turley Regional Managing Principal. "Atlanta and the Southeast are among our highest priorities. Atlanta is a regional, national, and international business hub. It's a strategic market for Cassidy Turley not only due to its amazing growth and demographic patterns but also because our clients need us to be there."

Added Cassidy Turley Senior Managing Director Mike Shelly, "I've known Lisa and worked with her for two decades, and I know there is no better person to lead Cassidy Turley in Atlanta. She brings to Cassidy Turley an immense intellect combined with the ability to earn investor- and landlord-clients' trust, collaborate with tenant rep brokers to complete complex transactions and lead complex and diverse organizations.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

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 can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
