"Since announcing the move to Plano, all of our teams have worked cohesively and cross functionally to insure inclusion among the certifying regional councils, government entities, our suppliers and throughout the business community in general," said Monetta Stephens, Toyota Supplier Diversity.

"In fact, based on prior success, we are partnering with DFW MSDC and DIP to insure that this build-out engages the most innovative designs and processes, based on Toyota's pillars of respect for people and continuous improvement," adds Bonnie Clinton, who leads Indirect Procurement at the Torrance location.

This exchange event is designed to promote total inclusiveness by engaging potential participants in the Dallas Metroplex.  DIP and DFW MSDC are partnering to insure that the most pivotal suppliers are reached by conducting outreach not only within the regional councils of nationally recognized certifying agencies, but also across key Metropolitan areas, in faith-based institutions, civic groups and on social media.

Qualified suppliers will need to submit their business profile in order to receive an invitation to the event.  Suppliers receiving an invitation will be treated to networking opportunities with key decision makers, construction timeline and project management information and business growth opportunities.  During the event, Toyota's Construction Developer and Project Management Teams will engage potential suppliers in a match-making session to gauge capabilities and align Toyota business needs.  For more information and to obtain prequalification criteria, certified MBE/WBEs are asked to contact DIP and/or DFW MSDC using the contact information below.

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyer belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are m...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Cloud resources, although available in abundance, are inherently volatile. For transactional computing, like ERP and most enterprise software, this is a challenge as transactional integrity and data fidelity is paramount – making it a challenge to create cloud native applications while relying on RDBMS. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Claus Jepsen, Chief Architect and Head of Innovation Labs at Unit4, will explore that in order to create distributed and scalable solutions ensuring high availa...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
