HOLLYWOOD, FL--(Marketwired - August 27, 2014) - As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified Inc. is delighted to honor American Home Shield, the largest home warranty company in the nation, with the 2014 Women's Choice Award seal. This award designation is based on a national survey of thousands of women across America who were asked to select the brands they would most highly recommend to family and friends.
"The Women's Choice Award program works to raise awareness among consumers about which brands are most recommended by women and to honor those brands," said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder. "By carrying the Women's Choice Award seal, companies like American Home Shield signify their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices."
American Home Shield provides home warranty protection to nearly 1.4 million homeowners in 49 states, and is a business unit of ServiceMaster, a leading provider of essential residential and commercial services. Merry Maids, also part of the ServiceMaster portfolio, earned 2013 and 2014 Women's Choice Awards as the Most Recommended Cleaning Service.
"We're very proud to have earned this honor," said Mark Barry, president of American Home Shield. "Our warranties provide tremendous value, especially in today's world where women are busier than ever. They expect quality service and coverage, and know they can depend on us to be there for them when a covered item breaks down. We help get things up and running again and protect their budget -- so that they can get back to the things that matter most in life."
According to a 2013 Fleishman Hillard Study, today's U.S. female consumer values the opinion of others and over half of all women believe they have a responsibility to help friends and family make smart purchasing decisions.
That belief is at the heart of the Women's Choice Award program, said Passi. "When women say they are willing to recommend a brand like American Home Shield to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. We're proud to recognize this company for delivering outstanding value and quality service to women."

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

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