Homestead.com CEO Will Declare That 'Your Small Business is Dead,' During Keynote Address at Small Business Summit 2007

MENLO PARK, Calif., January 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Justin Kitch, founder and CEO of Homestead.com, a company providing website creation software, ecommerce and online marketing products and services for small businesses, will boldly declare that "your small business is dead," during his keynote address at Small Business Summit 2007 on February 13th at the Crown Plaza Hotel in New York. Although, Mr. Kitch will offer the "tongue and cheek" statement to the audience of small business professionals -- his message is to educate business owners regarding the negative consequences of not marketing their products and services online and to debunk the myth that websites are a medium being utilized by the vast majority of small business owners. Mr. Kitch will also discuss the importance of search engine optimization and the five reasons he feels that online marketing is more important than traditional advertising.

"Research has shown us time and time again, that websites are the most efficient and cost-effective means of marketing a business," said Justin Kitch. "Small business owners are simply not creating websites and marketing online in pace with the growth of the Internet and consumers' demand for the products and services that they offer. The failure for small businesses to participate in online marketing will have negative implications for the growth of small businesses, and will provide larger-sized competitors with additional economic opportunity, because they've figured out how to leverage the technology for their benefit."

Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Today, we have more data to manage than ever. We also have better algorithms that help us access our data faster. Cloud is the driving force behind many of the data warehouse advancements we have enjoyed in recent years. But what are the best practices for storing data in the cloud for machine learning and data science applications?
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
