DANA POINT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- California lays claim to summer vacations in a way that's hard for most destinations to top. There's something about its casually sophisticated lifestyle, abundance of attractions and, of course, beach-ready weather that speaks to children and parents alike. And this year, only one Dana Point beach hotel captures everything that makes California a dream vacation destination: the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa.
Families in search of exciting Dana Point hotel offers won't find anything that features the one-stop-shopping appeal of this oceanfront property. The fun begins with the resort's seasonal Kahuna Laguna Kids Club, which entertains children ages 5 to 12 with supervised arts and crafts, games, outdoor adventures and poolside playtime. Open only during the summer, the Kahuna Laguna Kids Club takes the stress out of creating California experiences kids will not only embrace but remember. And with both half- and full-day sessions available, parents can easily indulge in their own adventures, too, courtesy of the two pools and 14,000-square-foot spa.
Unique among Dana Point hotels on the beach, the resort also offers a newly renovated splash zone at its Del Mar Pool specifically for kids' enjoyment. After frolicking in the water, kids and parents can indulge in a themed Family Dinner Buffet, where the meal (Mexican one night, Italian the next) is topped off with a kid-approved chocolate fountain for dessert. From there, families can attend the resort's Saturday night movie event, where a red carpet greets guests, and complimentary popcorn, snacks and drinks sweeten the experience. (Parents can get in on the fun, too, by purchasing cocktails or food through the resort's in-room dining service.) And, in a nod to happy endings, the resort provides a complimentary breakfast voucher to children who attend the movie.
Families in town on Friday nights during the summer can head across the street to Lantern Bay Park for a similar, city-sponsored event with movies and snacks provided.
From its enviable beachfront location, to its family-friendly programs, this resort offers the best of Dana Point hotel deals in one stunning package. And that's a dream come true for everyone.

Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
