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.

Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

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