Coverall's corporate website, launched in fall 2012 as part of the company's sales and marketing integration initiative, was selected a gold winner from more than 1,200 nominations submitted. Coverall VP of Marketing Diane Emo and her team's mission was to establish integrative marketing platforms to educate and support Coverall franchised business owners, their customers, prospective customers and industry advocates.

As a supplementary information and education source, the company's blog was rebranded as the Coverall CleanFeed in June 2013 and regularly delivers small-business tips, commercial cleaning industry updates and interesting facts about creating and maintaining a healthy work environment.

In addition to Emo serving as vice president of marketing, more than 36 percent of Coverall's 9,000 independent franchise owners are women. Moreover, the roles of CFO, vice president of operational development, vice president of human resources, two of three regional vice presidents of operations and one of two regional vice presidents of sales are held by women.

The Coverall marketing team members who created and maintain the website are also mostly women as well. They include Emo, Kim Dailey, manager of franchise marketing, Ryan Nacht, manager of sales and marketing operations, Sima Taslimi, communications manager and Natalia Rex, sales and marketing operations coordinator.

"Not only do we have inspiring female leaders on our marketing team, we are lucky to have outstanding women at all levels in the Coverall system," said Coverall CEO Rick Ascolese. "The recognition of our marketing team reflects our dedication to finding the best tools to support Coverall franchise owners and their customers and to provide important information about maintaining healthy working environments. We are very proud of this honor."

More than 1,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and individuals in 16 nations were submitted this year for consideration. Coverall's latest gold Stevie® Award joins the company's numerous 2013 Stevie recognitions, including a bronze Stevie for Support Development of the Year and a silver Stevie awarded to Michael Gumiela, Coverall's regional vice president of sales, for National Sales Executive of the Year.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an international competition produced by The Stevie, producers of the world's premier business award. Stevie Award winners are selected by more than 130 executives nationwide who participate in the judging process.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will present a new approach where business and development users collaborate – each using tools appropriate to their goals and expertise – to build mo...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics arc...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way.

In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas.
