LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Chuma Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:CHUM) (the "Company"), an entity providing both financing alternatives and turnkey support services for the lawfully organized cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that FINRA processed and approved the Company's name and symbol change request. Effective today, August 29, 2014, CannaMed Corporation will be known as Chuma Holdings, Inc.
The name change was accomplished through a merger with the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Chuma Holdings, Inc., that is effective as of today, August 29, 2014. CannaMed Corporation is the surviving entity in the merger, but it will continue with the new name and ticker symbol. Only the Company's name was changed in the Articles of Incorporation.
In connection with the name change, FINRA has assigned the Company a new symbol, "CHUM." The new CUSIP number is 171326101.
Purpose of Name Change
"When we initially chose the name CannaMed we were targeting the Nevada marketplace. However, since changing our scope to operate nationwide, and arriving in the California markets, it came to our attention that there is a private company in the cannabis sector with the CannaMed name, operating prior to ourselves. In order to avoid confusion between this great company and ourselves, we engaged with our marketing and legal teams to assist us in rebranding the Company," stated Mr. Jordan Shapiro, CEO of Chuma Holdings Inc.
Mr. Shapiro continued, "we are pleased to announce the new name of our brand, Chuma. Chuma means 'fantastic' and 'unbelievable'. This aligns perfectly with our Company's vision; which is to make the cannabis industry a better place to work for our clients. We will continue striving to create a better environment in which our clients can build their operations and empower their patients. We are very excited to bring the Chuma brand to market in the coming weeks."

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. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

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...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.
In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
