GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- Vegalab, an internationally acclaimed manufacturer of sustainable agricultural products, has developed a brand-new product named Nematode Control, which is proven to combat nematode problems in a variety of crops and turfs. Within the last two months, Nematode Control was applied by a number of prestigious country clubs in Florida that were all struggling with serious nematode infestations showing the typical symptoms of weak and thin turf grass, or even entire patches of dead grass. The selected country clubs applied Nematode Control once every 15 days for a period of 45 days. The results were astounding: visibly greener, denser and healthier grass that showed a dramatic improvement compared to the state of the grass before the application of Nematode Control.
Given these great results, Vegalab's CEO, Jill Duggan, and its President, David Selakovic, have announced plans to incorporate Nematode Control in the fight against crop and turf problems across all of the United States. Thanks to the all-natural composition of the innovative and environmentally friendly product, state registration is not required. Nematode Control is based on Vegalab's micronization technology, which has shown an efficacy of more than 80% when tested on a wide array of crops, including cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries and melons, and significantly reduced the population of parasitic nematodes. The product has already demonstrated great results in Asia and Costa Rica and after the recent success stories in Florida, Vegalab is ready to conquer new markets including California, Wisconsin, North Carolina, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
David Selakovic, who oversees the company's plant, laboratory and development in Geneva, Switzerland, is optimistic that professional farmers, hobby gardeners and golf course owners alike will greatly benefit from Nematode Control, which will allow them to reduce the amount of harmful nematodes without using chemicals that can be equally harmful to the grass, crop or soil. By developing Nematode Control, Selakovic and Vegalab stayed once again true to their motto of producing environmentally safe and sustainable solutions, which include, amongst others, natural pesticides and organic fertilizers. Vegalab is a global leader in its field and is represented with offices all over the world. At the European headquarter in Geneva Selakovic and his team are constantly developing new ideas and approaches to realize the company's vision of optimizing the world's resources to ensure a more efficient ecologically sound planet for future generations.
David Selakovic is known as a hugely successful and experienced entrepreneur, innovator and manager who keeps constantly pushing himself and his teams to find even better solutions and approaches that can be applied on a global scale. In the course of his career, Selakovic has been setting business trends and high standards in the information technology, medical, chemical, energy and marketing industries. As a result of this, Selakovic is an internationally sought-after advisor who has helped many companies to create high performance teams, develop innovative strategies and come up with tactile business initiatives. Originally from Slovenia, Selakovic is a world citizen who currently lives with his wife Leah Selakovic in Singapore and is a frequent visitor to Switzerland, where he oversees the progress his team makes at the Vegalab laboratories in Geneva.

As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within. In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

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.

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

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...
