SevenTwenty Strategies is proud to announce it has been awarded two gold
Pollie Awards from the AAPC, the industry’s highest honor bestowed upon
political consultants at the national and international level.
SevenTwenty was recognized in the public affairs division for best
website and less than full-page newspaper advertisement.
“SevenTwenty remains on the forefront of innovation in technology and
design,” President Pam Fielding said. “We are honored that AAPC has
recognized the hard work and creativity our team delivers on a daily
basis to help our clients tell their story.”
In the newspaper division, SevenTwenty, an integrated public relations
and public affairs firm, was recognized with a gold Pollie Award for its
work with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Together,
SevenTwenty and AANP developed a comprehensive campaign to inform
Washington decision makers about the high-quality and trusted role nurse
practitioners play in American medicine. The advertisement ran in
newspapers with a combined circulation of more than 70,000, which target
key decision makers in Congress and the White House. As a result of the
comprehensive campaign, the mentions of AANP’s Nurse Practitioner Week
on Google increased from 780,000 in 2012, to 1,710,000 in 2013.
“Nurse practitioners are a trusted and skilled group of health care
providers who are providing high quality, affordable access to
patient-centered care,” Dave Hebert, president of AANP, said.
“SevenTwenty was able to place our message front and center and show
decision makers in Washington the integral role that nurse practitioners
play in ensuring millions have access to highly-qualified health care
SevenTwenty was also recognized with the top honor in the
highly-competitive Internet division for the public affairs website for
the site StopExportingAmericanJobs.com on behalf of the National Council
of Textile Organizations (NCTO). With an increasing involvement in
online advocacy, the Internet division was one of the most competitive
for Pollie Awards.
“This year’s Pollie Awards were especially competitive for an off cycle
with over 1,600 entries. We were pleased to see innovative voter contact
and persuasion strategies applied in all segments, especially in our
Internet and social media categories, which saw a significant increase
in number over last year,” said AAPC CEO Art Hackney.
The AAPC announced this year’s winners at the 2014 Annual Pollie Awards
& Conference on April 4 in San Diego, CA. The Pollie Awards (Pollies)
are bipartisan honors awarded annually by the AAPC to members of the
political advertising and communications industry who have demonstrated
superior work on behalf of their candidates and causes. A blind jury of
their peers selects AAPC award winners. Esquire magazine has
dubbed the Pollies as “…the Oscars of political advertising.”
The annual Pollie Awards & Conference brings the leading political
professionals in the world together to network and hear from top
technology innovators, pollsters, pundits and service providers as the
2014 political cycle begins to heat up.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

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...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
