LatinVision Media Inc. Announces Its Line-up of Speakers for the 5th Annual Marketing to Latinos Sports Business Summit and Networking Event

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- LatinVision Media Inc., a producer of business summits for the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American Markets, announced its full lineup of speakers for the Sports conference aimed at helping U.S. and Latin American marketers reach and engage Hispanic consumers.

According to Carlos Vassallo, CEO of LatinVision Media, sports is the fastest growing industry among Hispanics across the world, including Latinos in the US and in Latin America. Fans are consuming sports content, including live events, at the level that has not been seen before and they are using multiple platforms and social media channels to stay informed, connected and engaged with their teams and athletes. Latinos spend more time engaging with sports than any other group. The U.S. Hispanic Market is one of the most attractive for advertisers and marketers due to its purchasing power, which is estimated to be greater than 1.5 trillion dollars. "The exponential growth of the Hispanic Market as a segment is changing the engagement rules, forcing marketers to change their approach, strategy and tactics if they want to maintain their share in the business. Sports is perhaps the stronger driver to reach this consumer group," he explained.

This fifth edition of LatinVision's sports summit is part of the industry-specific marketing summits the company has planned for 2014. To learn more about the summit series, see the following:

While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Surace, CEO of Appvance, will discuss how we learn from these real-world succe...
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings.

There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
