Presented by Ashton Whited and Shawn Stockman from the legendary R&B group Boyz II Men, and hosted by Hollywood DJ Orator and former NBA star Cedric Ceballos, the Beatbike Launch Party benefits Micah's Voice, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established by Shawn and Sharhonda Stockman.  Micah's Voice helps provide community, hope and financial resources for families affected by autism.

"One of the Stockman's twin sons, Micah, was diagnosed with autism at an early age and they realize the financial burden families are experiencing," said Vertical Wellness owner Shanna Israel.   "Although research is very important, Micah's Voice is focused on the present situation and has a deep concern for families dealing with autism.  Events like the Beatbike Launch Party help support these families and bring awareness to the effects of autism."

The Beatbike event is expected to attract a wide variety of attendees, including celebrities.  Some of the dozens of celebrities invited to this event include Kyle Massey, James Lesure, Joey Fatone, Dean Cain, Drew Kenny, Rob Kardashian, Nick Lachey, Common, Cedric Ceballos and Jamie Foxx.

Beatbike is a 4,500 square foot oasis within the city.  The facility offers participants an organic juice bar, posh lounge areas, a beautiful outdoor patio, WIFI, and private bathrooms, showers and vanities.  A state-of-the-art sound system plays the latest music during the 45-minute immersion classes. These workouts simulate a real road ride, with a power-packed playlist and top level instructors to push participants physically, mentally and spiritually.

In addition to the event's sponsorship, Vertical Wellness will also collaborate with Stockman to create a new section called "Shawn Stockman's Favorites" in their Autism Spectrum BeWell Boutique. This section will showcase Shawn's favorite products and the items that have helped their family navigate Micah's journey, as well as exclusive videos, interviews, and tips. All proceeds from the section will be donated to the Micah's Voice charity.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs.

The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved efficienc...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control.

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...
