Strong support from the corporate community for Frost & Sullivan SG's annual Frost the Trail Charity Run at MacRitchie

SINGAPORE, Aug. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Held on 23 August 2014, Frost & Sullivan Singapore's 9th edition of the 'Frost the Trail' run saw 165 teams, 95 individuals and over 750 runners gather at the MacRitchie Reservoir Park to run in support of the underprivileged.

'Frost the Trail' saw both avid and novice runners hitting the winding trails of MacRitchie in the cool morning air amidst lush greenery. Runners participated in one of two categories -- the 5 km team race as well as the 10 km individual race. In total, Frost the Trail Singapore 2014 helped raised more than SGD140k, with 100% of proceeds going directly to this year's adopted charity, Bright Hill Evergreen Home.

Bright Hill Evergreen Home is a 250 bed, accredited, 100 per cent non-profit Nursing Home for the destitute and poor. Its mission is to provide health care services to the aged regardless of their race, language or religion. More than 90 per cent of the elderly have no family, no money, and are in varied stages of dementia.

Thomas Tay, a Senior Director at Frost & Sullivan was the organising chairman of this year's event whom presented the cheque to the beneficiary. He was grateful for the support received.

"It is inspiring to see so many people here today joining hands for a good cause. Besides benefiting the underprivileged, I am delighted to see more and more people pursuing a more active lifestyle. Together with the invaluable support of our corporate partners, we hope to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate in the community through 'Frost the Trail'."

"In addition to raising funds for our adopted charity, we also hope to increase awareness about their needs so more corporations and individuals will get to know them and hopefully come forward to help so there is sustained aid for them. We hope that 'Frost the Trail' will grow from strength to strength every year so as to make a difference to these charities," he added.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
