Park Ridge Celebrates Its New Look With the Mayor Terry McGuire

Park Ridge Marriott Completes Lobby Renovation and Hosts Mayor Terry McGuire for Ribbon-Cutting Celebration

PARK RIDGE, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- The Park Ridge Marriott recently concluded a lobby redesign -- including the addition of Brae's Lounge restaurant -- and Park Ridge Mayor Terry McGuire was on hand to participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

According to Christine Devers, General Manager, the Bergen County, NJ hotel's lobby was completely renovated to reflect Marriott's "Great Room" style, which is perfect for socializing after a day of meetings or travel. "Marriott has found that today's travelers don't want to stay in their room all evening. This Great Room design reflects this new mentality and offers comfortable seating and complimentary Wi-Fi access so web surfing and email have never been easier."

The highlight of the new Great Room lobby is Brae's Lounge. Offering a variety of menu items along with state-of-the-art technology and comfortable spaces, Brae's Lounge is the ideal location to relax and socialize over fine food and drink. The menu has a wide variety of selections to appeal to most any appetite offering New Age American cuisine featuring sharable plates and trendy cocktails like our "Mojirita" -- part Mojito and part Margarita made with fresh picked herbs form our own garden or the refreshing Cucumber Gin Martini, perfect for a hot summer night.

Chef Daniel Ritacco has created a menu in Brae's Lounge with something for everyone. He is inspired by guests gathered at one of the lounge's communal tables sharing food. His most popular sharable appetizers include the Spicy Tuna with Wonton Crisps, Flat Bread Pizzas which range from the traditional Margherita to the inventive Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese, and the ever-popular Wings with choice of Spicy, Honey BBQ and Sriracha.

The Park Ridge Marriott is set within a tranquil urban oasis in Bergen County, making it one of the most romantic hotels in New Jersey. Visitors cross over a scenic bridge overlooking a natural stream with koi fish before arriving in the hotel's lush, tree-filled setting. The hotel's facilities include The Botanical Spa & Salon, indoor and outdoor pools, and the Park Ridge Marriott Health Club. The property also features 289 well-appointed guest rooms. For meetings and events, the property offers a total of 18,000 square feet of space and 19 meeting rooms, the largest being the 8,400-square-foot Grand Ballroom which can accommodate up to 1,350 people.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets?

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
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...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
