Jesta I.S, a leading provider of enterprise business solutions for
retailers and wholesalers, has announced today the launch of a strategic
partnership in South America with Grupo Megabyte. Headquartered in
Panama, Grupo Megabyte provides turnkey solutions including integrated
barcode printing systems, mobile technology, point of sale computers,
security systems, and supplies to retailers and wholesalers across South
The partnership is aligned with Jesta I.S.’s strategic international
business development plan, which has South America designated as one of
its main global hubs. The South American apparel and footwear
manufacturing/retail market is growing rapidly, however, local ERP
software solutions are not providing the necessary capabilities to
sustain the developing markets. With the support of Grupo Megabyte,
Jesta I.S. has introduced its robust solutions to the industry in
Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.
“Ariel Eskenazi is the founder of Grupo Megabyte and his team has
extensive experience in the South American apparel and footwear market.
Their knowledge, coupled with Jesta I.S.’s four decades of expertise
lays the groundwork for what will surely become a fruitful partnership.
Together, I am confident that we will successfully introduce our robust
solution suite to the local industry, enabling them to better manage
their operations. From product development to production, purchasing,
fulfillment, merchandising, store operations and analytics, all of the
pieces to an end-to-end-solution will be housed in one single system,
eliminating redundancy and inefficiencies,” said Sam Edery, Head of
International Business Development at Jesta I.S.
“We are proud to establish our partnership with Jesta I.S. because we
will now have a superior solution for our local businesses who need a
specialized wholesale and retail solution focused on the apparel,
footwear and accessories industries. We will finally have a scalable
solution that manages the entire supply chain from beginning to end.”
said Ariel Eskenazi, General Manager of Grupo Megabyte.
In the coming months, the Grupo Megabyte team will become certified
users of the Jesta I.S. platform in order to support the local customer
base. Jesta I.S. commits to growing organically in Latin America,
offering local customers not only a robust product, but more
importantly, a demonstration of respect toward their cultural priorities
and an understanding of their business operations.

To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

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 @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
