LAS VEGAS, NEVADA and TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Caesars Entertainment and Advantex Marketing International Inc. (CSE:ADX) have joined together to develop a program where members of Caesars Entertainment's award-winning Total Rewards loyalty program now have even more ways to earn rewards in their everyday lives when they use their Total Rewards card at participating local retailers in select cities. The Total Rewards program has teamed up with Advantex Marketing International, Inc. to expand the brick-and-mortar footprint of the Total Rewards Marketplace. The expansion, which started with 44 participating locations in Memphis, Tenn. and Tunica, Miss., will include locations in Nashville, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Mo. and Omaha, Neb.
"Total Rewards is continually seeking new and more meaningful ways of creating benefits for our members in their everyday lives," said Michael Marino, Vice President of Customer Loyalty for Caesars Entertainment. "The expansion of the Total Rewards Marketplace from a primarily online retail forum to brick-and-mortar establishments that our members regularly frequent allows members to derive even more value from participation in the program. Now, many of our members can earn Total Rewards Reward Credits every day when they shop, dine, golf or go to the spa in their hometowns."
To take advantage of the additional opportunity to earn rewards, members must swipe their Total Rewards card during check-out at participating retail locations. At most participating retailers, Total Rewards members will earn one Reward Credit for every one dollar they spend (unless otherwise specified at TotalRewards.com/EarnLocally).
"This marks a defining moment for Advantex and a significant business opportunity for us in the U.S. marketplace," said Kelly Ambrose, Advantex Marketing International CEO. "We're thrilled to be partnering with a global leader like Caesars Entertainment and their award-winning Total Rewards loyalty program to bring even greater rewards to their members."
More information and a list of participating retailers may be found online at TotalRewards.com/EarnLocally.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
