David Selakovic and Vegalab Emphasize the Importance of Sustainable Practice

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Ever since Dr. Henry I. Miller published his opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal questioning the sustainability advantages of organic agriculture, advocates of organic farming have been arguing their case against Miller in an effort to demonstrate how the all-natural approach is the only option that offers a realistic long-term outlook for our environment and hence for the world population as a whole. The Washington, D.C.-based Organic Center reported, for example, that most studies on the runoff of nutrient show that organic production methods lead to lower nitrogen losses compared to traditional crop production. In addition to that, the Organic Center argues that the greenhouse gas emissions and the overall energy usage for organic farming are considerably less than for conventional agriculture.

David Selakovic, the president of Vegalab, a renowned manufacturer of agricultural products, agrees with the Organic Center and has been emphasizing the importance of sustainable practices for many years: "Sustainability is the driving force behind every one of our brands, products, and services. We have dedicated our company to providing all-natural products that make a positive difference, and do not deplete the earth's resources." Vegalab uses natural plant extracts and organic minerals for all their process in a relentless effort to display their commitment to sustainability, striving to optimize resources all over the world in order to ensure a more ecologically sound and efficient planet for future generations. Many years of biological research and development go into each product to utilize the power of nature and achieve all-natural, organic, sustainable and environmentally safe results.

Vegalab does not limit the principle of sustainability to its products, but to the entire business process, from research and discovery, to development, testing, and manufacturing. "We are proud of our position as a leader in biological innovation and progressive organic science. And we are equally dedicated to being at the forefront of social responsibility," says David Dragan Selakovic. For this reason, he constantly encourages his team to work with local communities and has been supporting educational and volunteer projects that foster environmental protection for many years. Selakovic strongly believes, that sustainability cannot be achieved by manufacturing environmentally friendly products alone, but that every company, every manager and ultimately every team member should feel committed through social responsibility to carry the message of safe and sustainable practices to others.

Vegalab is an international leader in the field of formulating and manufacturing environmentally responsible agricultural products that promote sustainability. Products are based on many years of biological research and patented technology, leading to breakthrough products that in turn lead to higher productivity, lower residue in crops, decreased waste and a reduction of the chemical footprint on the land. David Selakovic is the President of Vegalab S.A. and manages the corporate headquarters in Geneva. David is known across many industries for his skills as a wise and powerful business leader, savvy investor and sought-after advisor. His passion for business, for helping others with his entrepreneurial zest, for building highly productive teams, and supporting the communities in which he lives and works, is of utmost importance to him. In his rare free time, David likes to explore his personal interests in photography, sailing, classical art, racing cars, participating in extreme sports, and spending time with his wife, Leah Selakovic. Together, they are actively supporting a number of charities that reflect their personal core values and allow them to give back to the local communities.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
