Multilateral Diplomacy Drives Initiatives of Small Island Developing States' Major Groups and Stakeholders at United Nations

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 04/21/14 -- Major groups and stakeholders of the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States continue delegations for thematic areas on Millennium Development Goals and Post-2015 Agenda, including human rights, social development, climate change, biodiversity, diplomatic missions, and international partnerships by initiating multilateral motives on intergovernmental affairs at this week's Intersessional meeting from April 21 through 25 at the United Nations.

ECCO2 Global Partners, an intergovernmental association of civil society partnerships (in cooperation with Member States), as ECCO2 Haiti Programme, Micronesia New Millennium Program, and Jamaica New Millennium Programme plan to strengthen its multilateral affairs by establishing thematic focal points in Europe, North America, West Africa, Brazil, and China to develop international supply chains that will create job opportunities for small island nations, as Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic for assembly and manufacturing of textiles, machinery, and consumer goods that are developed from raw materials that can be cost effectively imported from origins as China.

H.E. Cary Lee Peterson, Chairman of ECCO2 Global Partners comments, "There are over forty million people in the Caribbean alone. One fourth of these people live in Haiti where the unemployment ratio is above 40 percent according to global statistics. We are working to develop multilateral supply chains in the U.S., West Africa, Brazil, the Asia-Pacific region, and Europe that offer efficient and sustainable methods to manufacture and distribute products that would usually not be economically viable to produce in the Western World due to logistics and cost of labor for certain parts of production."

The anticipation is to develop inexpensive labor for foreign private sectors (without downsizing the number of indigenous laborers) and create jobs that offer a slight wage increase to workers in developing island nations, as Haiti, who have a lower GDP rate per capita and employment-to-population ratio than the rest of the Western Hemisphere. Europe, West Africa, Brazil, and United States, who are on the sending or receiving end of these supply chains stand to benefit from this motive due to the fact that more goods can be produced and distributed in a shorter timeframe at a lower cost (via entrepots in small island nations) without compromising product quality or increasing the cost of goods (due to expensive raw materials) that would inflate resale pricing within a marketplace, which would impact private sector budgets that include compensation to indigenous laborers of the micro-economies, who are exporting the raw materials and spare parts used for production of finished product to the end buyer.

ECCO2 Global Partners has established civil society partnerships within Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, Micronesia, and West Africa, in conjunction with the Diplomatic Mission Peace and Prosperity (Europe), ECCO2 Jamaica, Centre for Climate Change and Environmental Study (Nigeria), ECCO2 Corp. (U.S. and Guam), and Haitian NGO partners, AHDSEE and CMOCDAPUNDHJ. Overall, the thematic agendas on multilateralism are to create awareness and allure support from other Member States, major groups, and stakeholders at the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to increase a global market share in international trade that moderates economy, social development, and international trade partnerships between Member States where there are opportunities for an increase in gross national product and rate per capita from production or labor.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...
With the proliferation of both SQL and NoSQL databases, organizations can now target specific fit-for-purpose database tools for their different application needs regarding scalability, ease of use, ACID support, etc. Platform as a Service offerings make this even easier now, enabling developers to roll out their own database infrastructure in minutes with minimal management overhead. However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
