The 2014 Strategic North American Top 100 List Released by CG/LA Infrastructure

$369 Billion Total Project Value Identified

WASHINGTON, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CG/LA Infrastructure Inc., a global market maker specializing in strategic infrastructure project identification, yesterday released the Strategic Top 100 North America (NA) List of the 100 most strategic projects critical to the revitalization of economic competitiveness and opportunity creation.  Projects were selected over six months, beginning with a preliminary list of over 400 projects and narrowed down using CG/LA's proprietary ranking model.  Comprised only of shovel-ready projects with business opportunities within the next 3-18 months, the 2014 Strategic Top 100 North America is valued at US$369 billion

Strategic Objective.  The objective of the Strategic Top 100 NA is to show what is actually required – in terms of financial and human resources – to rebuild the competitiveness of North America.  Projects were selected based on their proposed contribution to long-term competitiveness and opportunity creation.  "The horizon for our infrastructure vision should be based on 30-40 years, instead of what is politically expedient for the next four," said CG/LA Infrastructure President and Founder, Norman F. Anderson.  "The projects included in this year's list are a clear roadmap for revitalizing a struggling economy and improving our quality of life for years to come." 

The 6th North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum. The Strategic Top 100 NA is the cornerstone on which the 6th North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum is built.  Scheduled for October 28-30, 2014 in Washington, DC, the Forum is a dynamic infrastructure marketplace focusing on strategic project opportunities and platform to provoke innovation in the industry.  "The Strategic Top 100 prompts a serious conversation between public and private sector leaders on how to fund the infrastructure North America needs to maintain its competitiveness," said Andres Gluski, President and CEO, AES Corporation.  "Today, more than ever, we need innovative proposals, like a national infrastructure bank and greater use of public private partnerships, to start building the infrastructure we need for tomorrow."

Building Strategic Infrastructure.  The Strategic Top 100 is designed to assist public and private sector leaders from throughout North America in identifying and rapidly building strategic infrastructure.  All projects are invited to attend and present their immediate business opportunities at the 6th North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum. CG/LA's region-specific Forums convene four times annually, each time bringing together a community of over 500 industry executives from all aspects of an infrastructure project lifecycle - including financial lenders and investors, law, design, engineering and construction firms, and owner operators – to focus on specific projects. The Forums are open to the public and registration information can be found at www.cg-la.com/forums

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
