AVENTURA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- Anyone who abides by the notion that if you can't say something nice, you shouldn't say anything at all, clearly hasn't visited the Internet lately. From first-person reviews, to social-media campaigns, people now more than ever feel liberated to say exactly what they think about any given experience. Considering this no-holds-barred social attitude, getting a positive review is not only that much harder, it's that much more valuable. And that underscores the monumental achievement of the Courtyard Miami Aventura Mall, which recently received two awards for doing what they do best: making guests happy.
As the recipient of the Elite Appreciation Award, the hotel enjoys a No. 1 ranking among all 881 Courtyard properties when it comes to recognizing its Elite Members. The hotel's most seasoned guests, in other words, are the ones who consistently rate the hotel as providing the best service.
This is a notable distinction not just among Courtyard properties but among all hotels in Aventura, Florida. Guests rave about the fact that the property's staff greets them by name, for example. They like that the hotel's meeting rooms near Miami, Florida are both attractive and conducive to productivity. The hotel, they say, isn't just convenient. The staff works hard to make it a happy place to be.
Such glowing reviews go a long way toward explaining the hotel's second recognition: the prestigious Silver Performance Award. This award is bestowed upon the top-performing 20 percent of Courtyard properties for outstanding customer satisfaction. The Silver Award is particularly meaningful since it recognizes each team member's contribution to creating a positive guest experience.
"I'm very fortunate to have such a great team that not only understands what our guests' expectations are," notes General Manager Jose Batista, "but is then able to meet and exceed those expectations."
The service isn't the only feature winning over travelers from all parts of the globe, though. This property's ideal location next to the best of Aventura dining, shopping and entertainment, combines with its outstanding accommodations to be a premier destination in its own right. Guests, for example, can look forward to spacious digs and a host of perks (think free Internet access, free parking and premium-channel cable) in some of the most well-appointed hotel rooms near Miami.
Between the luxe accommodations and the demonstrably superior service, the Courtyard Miami Aventura Mall is more than a place to write home about. It's a place to talk about.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
