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."

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

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.
