ASHKELON, ISRAEL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.
Avi Benlolo, President & CEO of the Canadian Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC), is on a fact-finding mission to Israel to obtain the most up-to-date information on events in the country. In a series of meetings with Israeli community, government and military representatives to discuss their personal experiences, and to better understand the difficulties they continue to live with on a daily basis, he met with the Mayor of Sderot, Alon Davidie, on the frontlines of the war with Hamas.
"Mayor Davidie told me that Sderot is not dealing with Post Trauma - just with Trauma; the traumatic pain of Sderot from rocket fire and sirens is constant. The price of countering this unending terrorist threat is shock, panic, sirens, shelters, pain, injuries mild, severe and life-threatening, and death. Arguably the price for the Palestinians living under the brutal Hamas rule is even worse: utter devastation," Mr. Benlolo explained. "None of the people with whom I spoke want a war. They prefer peace. But they are united in their belief that preserving democracy and their freedom is a sacrifice without option. They understand that Sderot stands for Israel, and Israel stands for the free world."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
