For the first time on mobile, "The Rise of Atlantis," SkyZone's popular online game, is available exclusively to Verizon Wireless customers. In "The Rise of Atlantis" players explore Atlantis and the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World as they navigate through elaborate animated maps to help solve a system of puzzles that bring players closer to raising the fabled ancient city of Atlantis from its aquatic grave. Addictive tile-swapping puzzle action and a networked high-score feature keep customers entertained while they compete against each other to become the best explorer in the world.

"Escape!" and "Twinkle Town" are being made available through SkyZone's Asian Gateway Program that provides Verizon Wireless customers with innovative mobile gaming content from South Korea. Currently, more than a half dozen titles have been localized and published in North America through this initiative.

"Escape!" features a conspiracy theory-themed storyline where players awake in a secret corporate lab to discover their memories have been erased, and they are being held captive as test subjects at an unknown agency's headquarters. Players must collect useful items to help them escape before it is too late by uncovering clues and solving puzzles along the way.

In "Twinkle Town" players must re-connect a series of disconnected wires that together light up a town. Through 24 intense levels, players must use assigned keys to send a jolt of lightning into the town and light up all of the darkened homes, avoiding any breaks in the string of lights. Additionally, players must find and use special items to light up the entire line of light bulbs to speed up the process.

Verizon Wireless customers can purchase and download "The Rise of Atlantis," "Escape!" and "Twinkle Town" in the Games shopping aisle in the Get It Now(R) or Media Center virtual store on a number of popular phones from Verizon Wireless, including the Voyager(TM) by LG, LG Chocolate(TM) 3, Samsung Gleam(TM) and MOTORAZR(2) V9m. Customers can download "The Rise of Atlantis" or "Escape!" for $2.99 monthly access or $6.99 for unlimited use purchase. "Twinkle Town" is available for $2.49 monthly access or $6.49 for unlimited use purchase. Each game also offers customers a complimentary three-minute demo. Application purchase prices and subscription fees may vary; unless customers have unlimited data features, airtime or megabyte charges may also apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

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...

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...

We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.
