SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/14 -- Nexia Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NXHD), parent company of Slide the City, LLC, reported that planning for its next event in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 19, 2014 is well under way. Total participation in the event is expected to be in the 1,000s. Slide the City has plans for a string of events which you can review at its web site http://www.slidethecity.com.
Slide the City is bringing 1000 feet of soapy vinyl to brighten your city streets. Come dressed to impress because you'll be climbing the corporate ladder once your boss spies you from his corner office with your cool dance moves and slick slides. Did we mention 1,000 feet? Yeah, that's over 3 football fields. Usain Bolt will be green with envy once he sees how fast you can cover that much ground. Oh and in case you were wondering, our slide was made right here in the good ole U.S of A and travels with us throughout the country.
Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event. There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt. Don't worry, we got this thing padded. Bring your water balloons, buckets, floaties, and water guns (non-realistic of course), to squirt, spray, splash, and get all attending soaked.
Richard Surber, CEO of Nexia, commented, "Nexia through its talented entertainment division is expanding its business model to include events like Slide the City. Nexia's pilot event was completed in Spokane, Washington on June 1, 2014. For more details on the Lantern Fest, go to http://www.thelanternfest.com. Expansion into this market is very exciting."

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

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.
