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.”
4imprint is accepting applications for its 2014 one by one program online at http://onebyone.4imprint.com. Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization is encouraged to apply.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
