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

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

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. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

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. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
