American Airlines Center Partners with ParkHub.com

Moving forward, parking for your favorite sports game or concert just got easier

American Airlines Center, the premier event center ranked #4 in the U.S. and #9 in the world by Venues Today in 2014, is proud to announce their partnership with ParkHub.com to rollout their new mobile point-of-sale program: "PRIME" by ParkHub.com. Always on the cutting edge of technology integration, American Airlines Center recognized the intrinsic value of ParkHub.com's software and hardware solution that enables their attendants to not only validate all pre-purchased parking and season ticket holders' passes via Ticketmaster, but, more importantly, accept all major credit cards in all their parking lots.

This functionality is accomplished from a handheld unit slightly larger than a pack of cards.

Craig Courson, Executive Vice President and CFO at American Airlines Center, stated that he, "...look[s] forward to exploring other vertical marketing opportunities that ParkHub.com's platform supports in an effort to maximize the system and our revenue potential. I have no doubt that ParkHub.com will continue to deliver."

What patrons of American Airlines Center may be aware of is that this new technology has been in effect since January 5th of this year. Mr. Courson and his colleagues wasted no time in implementing PRIME, going through the transition and training process in the middle of the Stars' and Mavericks' seasons. Speaking on ParkHub.com's process, Courson stated, "They have gone above and beyond to make this a seamless and enjoyable experience."

American Airlines Center is excited to notify their attendees that from now on, their lots will be accepting credit cards.

It comes as no surprise that American Airlines Center and ParkHub.com, a Dallas-based technology company and Ticketmaster Certified Partner, will be responsible for turning what traditionally was an analog and antiquated process into a speedy digital exchange. This is parking for the 21st century, and American Airlines Center patrons will have front row seats for everything that it entails; from brand new parking garages, less time in traffic and lines, and new apps created specifically for American Airlines Center.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
