Living, the only global technology and lifelong learning solution to
revolutionize an aging population’s ability to connect and create
change, today announced it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s exclusive
list of the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the United
States. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most
important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
The company ranked 1693 as a result of achieving significant customer
and revenue growth between 2010 and 2013 of 240%
“This Inc. 5000 recognition is validation of our success inspiring an
aging population to connect, contribute and lead healthier lives," said
Sarah Hoit, CEO and Founder at Connected Living. "We gain far more than
we give by having the wisdom, voice, advice and powerful contribution of
the greatest generation.”
The uniqueness of the Connected Living solution is its integrated C3

cloud based technology to tie senior communities, home and mobile health
together; the Connected Living University, providing content and
programming to deliver life long learning; and Connected Living
Consulting, to speed technology adoption and community development.
Together these capabilities enable an aging population to contribute and
live a healthier life.
"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety
of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting
how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief
Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far
fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago.
But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

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.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
