Airbnb is a great way to find a cheap place to stay or make a couple extra bucks by renting out spare space you have in your home. But the service wants to be known for more than just lodging, and its latest feature, “Experiences,” helps establish Airbnb as a hospitality brand. “Experiences,” currently available in San Francisco and Paris, lets you sign up for activities like guided city tours, nature hikes, food and drink tastings and more. If the program takes off, being an Airbnb “host” may not require you to have an apartment or space to rent – you could instead be an amateur chef, tour guide or teacher. “Experiences” is a win-win for everyone involved – it makes Airbnb and its users more money and gives travelers more to do. Whether or not “Experiences” expands to more markets remains to be seen. But if you’re planning a trip to Paris or San Francisco and you’re looking for something to do, check out Airbnb’s offerings.

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.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration.
