Promotional products retailer 4imprint donated $57,000 in in-kind grants during the second quarter of 2014. A total of 114 nonprofits and charities across the United States and Canada received promotional products grants through the promotional products distributor’s one by one® charitable giving program, which awards an in-kind gift to a nonprofit organization every business day. Among the donations: water bottles for the Limestone Cove Volunteer Fire Department in Unicoi, Tennessee and safety vests used for an event with the Niagara Falls Sunrise Rotary Club in Ontario.
Recipient organizations use $500 grants to purchase promotional products that help them generate awareness for their organizations, reach customers, promote events and thank key audiences. In addition to supporting these grant recipients, 4imprint also donates product samples to other charitable organizations to help advance their causes.
“It’s amazing to see the creativity these organizations use to spread the word about the important work they do,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, president and CEO, 4imprint. “Whether it’s through one by one grants or product sample donations, we are thrilled to play even a small role in helping them do good things in their communities.”

Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization is encouraged to apply.

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.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

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 However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
