NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Contrary to popular belief, awards were not created just to give fashion houses a red-carpet catwalk. Rather the best of them alert the world to achievements made within a given industry that might otherwise go unnoticed. In the case of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Charleston Airport/Convention Center, those achievements are making real impacts both on property and within the community. And the results of its most recent brand conference are ensuring that everyone takes notice.
One of the most notable awards this Charleston Airport hotel took home was the Bruce Reed Rally to Serve Award. Bestowed upon just one out of more than 700 Fairfield Inn & Suites properties, the honor reflects the hotel's above-and-beyond efforts at collaborative work. The property reached out to every Fairfield Inn & Suites in the Lowcounty to work as one team that built a house for Habitat for Humanity, an organization that creates quality housing for families in need.
The property's support of Habitat for Humanity is part of a company-wide program known as "Hospitality at Home." Designed to enlist the support of associates, owners, franchisees and even guests, Hospitality at Home engenders a number of different programs that benefit Habitat for Humanity. Some of the biggest contributions happen during special events and major company conferences whereby new guest-room furnishings are donated to the organization. Hotel refurbishments, meanwhile, usually result in donations of guest room furnishings that Habitat Restores can resell in their local markets and fund local Habitat construction.
Few hotels in North Charleston, SC can match this property when it comes to philanthropic work. Not only did the hotel earn the Bruce Reed Rally to Serve Award, it also took home the CMN Hotel of the Year award for its brand. This honor distinguishes the hotel as being the top fundraising property among Fairfield Inn & Suites for Children's Miracle Network.
But the community isn't the only group this hotel helps. Boasting attentive service, numerous amenities and some of the most comfortable hotel rooms in North Charleston, SC, the hotel is ideal for families, extended-stay guests and corporate travelers. And visitors know it. Their survey scores with regard to guest services helped catapult the property to a position within the top 20 percent of all Fairfield Inn & Suites, earning it a coveted Silver Performance Award.
From guest experiences to community outreach, the awards this property received point to its outstanding record of service. And that's more impressive than any red-carpet fashion show.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

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 @...

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...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
