Cookies for Kids' Cancer Joins MyJobChart.com as Featured Charity

Bake Sales, Races and Other Fund Raising Activities Can Now Be Tracked Using MyJobChart.com

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - MyJobChart.com Founder and CEO Gregg Murset announced this morning that Cookies For Kids' Cancer, an organization dedicated to providing more money for research of childhood cancer, will become the newest featured charity for members of the fastest growing online jobs and rewards website for kids. Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States with approximately 13,500 children and adolescents 18 and under diagnosed with cancer each year, and more than 30,000 in treatment at any given time.

Starting immediately, kids enrolled in MyJobChart.com will be able to complete their assigned jobs and make donations to Cookies For Kids' Cancer. Additionally, parents or grandparents can choose to match the donation by using the MJC donation portal. MyJobChart.com will make an additional donation to Cookies For Kids' Cancer for each new member that enrolls through the link http://myjobchart.com/cobrand/cookies as a way to give back and support such a worthy cause.

"You can't help but get excited when you are working with anyone from Cookies For Kids' Cancer," said Murset. "Teaming with Cookies For Kids' Cancer is a fantastic fit especially since their grassroots campaigns generally involve kids doing something to help raise money for other kids in need. MyJobChart.com is the perfect tool for parents and kids planning a fund raising event or completing projects around the house in order to make a donation."

Through the concept of grassroots bake sales and other fundraising events, as well as online cookie sales, Cookies for Kids' Cancer provides the support and inspiration for anyone, anywhere to join the fight against childhood cancer. Cookies for Kids' Cancer has granted more than $5 million to childhood cancer research, funding dozens of research projects and helping nine promising new treatments advance to clinical trial, where children are receiving them today.

"Cookies for Kids' Cancer is thrilled to team up with My Job Chart to inspire kids across the country to Be a Good Cookie while doing their chores," said Cookies for Kids' Cancer Founder Gretchen Witt. "Our shared love of kids and passion for making a difference makes My Job Chart a natural fit."

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
