He went on to emphasize the creativity of the pieces made by the UCS (User Creative Solutions) department, which creates customized solutions for advertisers' needs. Daniela Martinez, for her part, noted that nowadays people no longer buy only in accordance with the characteristics of traditional demographic audiences, but one must also stress the role played by emotional triggers, as she demonstrated in the study, User Intelligence Beyond Demographics, where she highlights seven psychographic segments with different consumption habits, behaviors and tendencies. Cesar Sabroso presented the highlights and novelties of programming together with A&E talent: Drew Manning from Fit2Fat2Fit Eoin Macken, Jill Flint and Brendan Fehr from The Night Shift, HISTORY: Juan Pablo Raba and Nadine Velazquez from Six, LIFETIME: Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Kim Matula, Meagan Tandy from UnReal and H2: Scott Wolter from America Unearthed.

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 conta...

In this power panel at @...
