all® Laundry Detergent is helping moms make messy moments memorable in a new campaign that turns their mobile device into a movie making machine with Magisto’s cloud-based smart technology. The campaign, “Summer Play” helps mom produce professional quality videos featuring her kids at their dirtiest – and most fun – moments, like sliding into second base, playing lawn games, taking road trips and enjoying a barbeque.
“We know moms depend on all® Laundry to get out tough kid stains, now we’re connecting with moms in a new way through their mobile devices and Magisto,” said Lora Van Velsor, Vice President Marketing, Sun Products. “We’re combining the power of new technology and creative storytelling to help mom celebrate kids being kids, which is what all® is all about.”
The Magisto campaign, which is the first of its kind in the category, enables parents to document, preserve and share their kids’ summertime moments in videos set to custom themed music and select imagery to inspire sharing across multiple social platforms, including Facebook and Twitter. More than 40 million people are currently engaged in Magisto’s user base.
As the Official Detergent of Little League®Baseball, the first phase of the “Summer Play” promotion, which launched in June, encouraged moms to capture the dirtiest moments from Little League games across the country. The July promotion phase expanded to all summer sports and in August the campaign continues by asking moms to submit video that captures the very best memories from Summer 2014. By entering videos into the campaign, parents can win prizes such as a trip to the Little League Baseball® World Series.
“Magisto is proud to be engaged in this campaign with an iconic American brand like all®. The melding of our technology and the all brand’s customer base of families who want to capture special moments is a great combination,” said Reid Genauer, Chief Marketing Officer, Magisto. “A sponsored theme provides a platform for families to connect with all®, create branded stories about the people and moments that matter most to them, and share their videos with a qualified and trusted audience.”
Thus far the campaign has created 305,527 all® branded “Summer Play” movies and garnered 1,208,544 movie views. The project is on target to hit 600,000 movies by the end of the summer. The winners to date include http://www.magisto.com/album/alllittleleaguemoments/video/cSojQVFWSV5-ITIPYnZLAHk

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.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
