Throughout the quarter, SPRIZA(TM) focused on building new relationships with potential clients, while improving and expanding its product and service offering.

SPRIZA(TM) added a critical individual in Business Development who is generating new business relationships within the professional sports industry.

SPRIZA(TM) designed and developed a new product vertical - a customer lottery platform - to add to its current offering. The new lottery platform includes a user-friendly microsite or landing page where participants can easily purchase lottery tickets, each with an assigned unique number. The platform allows clients to open their lotteries to a broader audience, eliminating the restriction of sales from traditional off-line lottery processes. The software system includes a payment integration with security protocol, ticket print mapping and functionality, and reporting and analytics of the lottery campaign. The software tracks and stores all data providing a system that is Legal Compliant, Audit-able, and includes Terms & Conditions and Fulfillment. Lottery campaigns may include automatic email confirmations and send-outs, and have the option for user incentives for purchasing multiple tickets or digesting specific content.

SPRIZA(TM) created a local contest campaign for No Greater Love, Canada's largest outdoor Christian music festival, owned by Christian Ventures Group Ltd. The short-term contest gave away VIP passes to the festival. The campaign had a Conversion Rate of 24%.

A SPRIZA(TM) contest that was live throughout Q3 was for Artists Within Makeup Academy. This contest offered three Grand Prizes of Online Makeup Artist Academy Tuition and a Pro Makeup Kit to one winner and two of their friends. The contest incentivized users to share it, contributing to the hundreds of thousands of 'Shares' SPRIZA(TM) has experienced.

SPRIZA(TM) continued to provide support to its client Dingsly, a new player in the crowd-funding market. SPRIZA(TM) created a contest campaign for Dingsly to generate market awareness and drive traffic to dingsly.com. Dingsly is an eSport-centric crowdfunding website and application that will allow gaming tournament providers to increase the total prize amounts for tournaments and ladders. The two-week campaign had a conversion rate of 51.26% and was shared by consumers over two-thousand times. The contest granted the Grand Prize Winner a Gamer Prize Pack, which included a fully customizable Cinch Gaming controller and other wearable gear. The contest also gave away seven Entry Prizes of various Cinch Gaming gear and apparel.

Other technical advances to the SPRIZA(TM) platform have enhanced the user experience and effectiveness of campaign creation and management. SPRIZA(TM) continues to update its Social Integrations to allow for effective distribution and viral sharing of the contest campaigns. The SPRIZA(TM) system tracks over 150 data points, presenting them in a user-friendly Analytics Dashboard. The platform collects Leads and their demographic data, with an improved search and sort function.

Momentum is leading to results as Q3 transitioned into Q4. SPRIZA(TM) campaigns to come include a variety of new business relationships in the industries of Sports (with a focus in the NHL), Travel, Entertainment and more.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total.

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.
"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
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...
