The complete alphabet of pendants, as well as the ampersand, allows women to add custom monograms, words and phrases to their PANDORA jewelry. Spell out a favorite word, such as "Live," "Laugh," "Love" or combine the letters of a school or Greek affiliation. For a fashion-forward look, layer an initial with other meaningful pendants on multiple bracelets or necklace chains of varying lengths.
"We're thrilled to introduce the letter pendants, which have been a top consumer request for a long time," said Angel Ilagan, Vice President, Marketing, PANDORA Jewelry, Americas. "This addition to our collection gives women the opportunity to express themselves and their personalities in a whole new way."
To achieve the level of detail on each hand-finished sterling silver pendant, PANDORA craftsmen use a micro bead-setting to fit cubic zirconia stones into tapered holes that are almost level with the surface. The stones are held in place by small metal beads.
The new letter pendants retail for $35 each and are now available to consumers. To view the entire spring collection or locate an authorized PANDORA retailer, visit www.pandora.net.

But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
