OWINGS MILLS, Md., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its founding in 1984, American Pool Enterprises, Inc. has demonstrated its expertise in the commercial swimming pool industry.

American Pool Enterprises is renowned for its skills in swimming pool management, lifeguard services, pool maintenance, pool construction, pool repair, pool renovation, and fountain construction. Annually, the company services more than 3,500 commercial pools across 24 wholly-owned subsidiaries. Additionally, the organization's recently updated website offers daily news, a full online magazine, a complete glossary of pool terms and a project gallery.

For its lifeguard services, American Pool Enterprises has created a one-of-a-kind lifeguard program through Guard For Life. This program supports lifeguard employees by focusing on safety and workplace confidence through training, skill assessments and career development. Guard For Life continues to grow by adding more employment opportunities each year.

In addition to lifeguard management, American Pool Enterprises completes a variety of pool construction projects every year, including spray pad installations, high-end pool renovations, new pool construction and strategic pool repairs.

"We are celebrating a great milestone for our company. It really has been an exciting 30 years. Right now, we are 24 companies strong and continuing to expand. Year-after-year, we have continued to develop our services and knowledge. Recently, we added playground design and installation to our menu of services. This is one example of our commitment to providing solutions that will benefit our customers," said Chief Executive Officer of American Pool Enterprises, Inc., Mitchell Friedlander.

"By collaborating with our wholly-owned subsidiaries we can offer a large variety of pool services to our clients. Normally, a property manager would need to work with several different pool companies to match our range of services. This anniversary is a testament to the quality of those services and our hardworking, knowledgeable staff that represent us by the pool and in the lifeguard chair," he added.

On this 30-year anniversary, the company seeks to continue its expansion efforts and bring a wide range of professional pool services to more regions in the United States.

"At the end of the day, we want to provide clients with the right solutions for their aquatic facility. And the right solutions often come from a combination of industry experience, a proven track record and a commitment to safety at all levels of service," said Friedlander.

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?

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.

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.

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 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...

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. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas.
