Charlotte, NC Hotel Strengthens Its Leadership Team With Two New Members

Decades' Worth of Experience Promise Great Things for the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- While there are many compelling attributes that staff can bring to the table, nothing quite trumps experience. But when experience is matched with those other valuable traits like innovation, enthusiasm and dedication, the results are the kinds of résumés boasted by the two newest team members at the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel.

Floyd Isley and Nancy Obstler have both cultivated distinguished careers among Charlotte, NC hotels. From opening hotels, to helming catering and sales departments, Mr. Isley and Ms. Obstler have seen and done it all when it comes to hotel management. So when Mr. Isley joined this Charlotte, NC Douglas Airport hotel as the new Director of Sales, and when Ms. Obstler joined as the new General Manager, staff and guests alike had reason to rejoice.

Mr. Isley's arrival on February 8, 2014 was not his first of his several positions within John Q. Hammons hotel group. The 20 year industry veteran previously worked at the hotel as the Senior Catering Manager before transferring to the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord during its pre-opening. There, he eventually traded in his position as the Director of Catering to become the property's Sales Manager.

This experience, diversified in terms of both properties and roles, bodes well for his position as Director of Sales, especially as it complements the responsibilities of Ms. Obstler. Formerly with the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord as well, Ms. Obstler arrived at this property in December 2013 with extensive sales experience. She joined the Embassy Suites during its construction to develop an exceptional and effective sales team that directly impacted the success of the property. However, her roles transcended sales to impact everything from hotel operations, to guest services, to the strategic development of the hotel as a whole. With 25 years of industry experience and 15 years with John Q. Hammons Hotel Group, Ms. Obstler provides impressive insight and expertise to the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel.

With combined experience among hotels in Charlotte, NC that boasts impressive breadth and variety, both Mr. Isley and Ms. Obstler are positioned to lead this hotel to bright new horizons. Already the property stands out among other Charlotte airport hotels for its experienced sales staff, superior service and spacious, suite-style accommodations. With Mr. Isley and Ms. Obstler now onboard, that reputation is poised to only grow brighter.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition.

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.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
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...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
