ATLANTA, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is inviting the world to watch live action of the annual International Photographic Competition (IPC) from August 4-7.

The IPC is designed to discover the most innovative, impactful imagery captured by photographers who seek to meet PPA's "12 Elements of a Merit Image" gold standard. The competition's categories include: portrait, illustrative, wedding, commercial, album and master artist.

"If it weren't for the coaching I received at IPC, I doubt that I would be where I am today with the level of my photography art," said Richard Sturdevant, M.Photog., M.Artist.CR., and IPC's 2013 first place winner in the Illustrative category. "I'm in a constant state of learning, and IPC gives me a bar that I can measure my success against the best in the world."

"The IPC experience drives me to raise the level of my photography to the next level and grow my business," said Randy Van Duinen, Cr.Photog., CPP, and the IPC's 2013 first place winner in the Commercial category. "Getting first place was one of the most incredible achievements in my professional life. This was my second year entering, and I will keep on competing as I have learned much from the judges' critiques."

With the addition of live streaming, PPA members and non-members can witness pivotal moments as the competition unfolds. Judging runs from August 4-7 at Gwinnett Technical College in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Live streaming will be accessible at no charge on desktop devices at Stream.TheIPC.org from 8:15 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EDT each day.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.
