They also had the highest winning percentage of anyone on the 2016 Annual Contest leader board. And they ended up with 42% more net profit won than service #2 at the SportsWatchMonitor for every pick, in every sport, for the entire year of 2016.
Nothing like this has ever been done by anyone else in the sports handicapping industry.
About.com (owned by The New York Times) has called Dr. Bob Akmens & his BAsports.com the best sports handicapper in the world: "no other handicapper can match Akmens in terms of winning."
HandicappingReviews.org lavishes yet more praise on BAsports.com when they say "He claims to be the world's best and most accurate and it would appear that he's got the evidence to back up that lofty claim."
The search engines agree that Bob Akmens is the best sports handicapper around. When one Google's "who is the best sports handicapper in the world?," BAsports.com is ranked #1 out of millions of hits. Bing comes up with 1.45 billion hits…and ranks BAsports.com #1.
With 2017 upon us, BAsports.com expects to make their basketball and hockey clients substantial profits in the coming months. And they're very proud to announce they also beat out 130 other sports services to finish #1 and win the 2016 Las Vegas SportsWatchMonitor MLB Handicapping Contest. MLB baseball is just a few weeks away.
The 80 #1-finishes BAsports.com has in national basketball contests are just a small fraction of their 340 #1-finishes in all national contests in all sports – a world record.
BAsports.com has produced the best NCAA Basketball handicapping results over the years through the use of algorithmic computer models that analyze thousands of patterns and trends of teams, coaches and players.
Across the wide spectrum of sports, BAsports.com has only one goal: to maximize the profit of their clients.
BAsports.com has also been spectacular in football: for the combined college football and NFL seasons in 2012-13, BAsports.com had 72.16% winners in one of the toughest contests of all, the Combination Football Contest of The Sports Monitor. 125 services participated. BAsports.com came out with 72.16%, 9% better than service #2. That was the biggest margin of victory ever in 27 years of any contest run by The Sports Monitor. BAsports.com became the very first service to ever finish a football season with over 70% wins in both college & NFL football. So it's not surprising BAsports.com is perfect so far in the NFL Playoffs.
About.com summed up BAsports.com very well when they said, "you truly do get what you pay for...plus more," and that "I can count on one hand the number of services that I would give a positive recommendation about to a fellow sports bettor. Bob Akmens Sports would certainly be included in that group."
BAsports.com has every reason to believe 2017 will be as good as their record-shattering Las Vegas Handicapper of the Year performance in 2016. And they invite everyone to come aboard and generate huge profits from their expertise.
Dr. Bob Akmens

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.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?
