NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 21, 2014) - Nest Seekers International CEO Eddie Shapiro, and top Broker, Ryan Serhant, delivered powerful presentations at Real Estate Connect 2014 in New York City. Shapiro opened the conference at the CEO Summit, sponsored by The New York Times, and Serhant participated in the final program, "Partnering for Global Success," presented by The Wall Street Journal.

Shapiro joined fellow industry luminaries at the CEO Summit including Pete Flint, CEO Trulia, Sherry Chris, President, Better Homes & Gardens, Errol Samuelson, President Realtor.com, Greg Schwartz, CRO Zillow and Diane Ramirez, CEO Halstead. Shapiro discussed the incredible growth of Nest Seekers International, which now includes 15 office locations spanning New York City, The Hamptons, Miami and Beverly Hills. "Nest Seekers International achieved extraordinary success by investing in our brokers and agents," said Shapiro, "Join our firm and we will invest in you more than anyone else in the industry," adding, "We will help you develop and grow a strong and lasting business, it's not about what you can bring to our company, it is about what we can do for you. Later, Shapiro joined a panel discussion entitled "Boutiques vs. Brands - Which Model Works Best Today" and noted that Nest Seekers believes in the power of web marketing and lead generation, "We continue to invest substantially in online campaigns and tap into the power of social media," said Shapiro.

Nest Seekers International Broker, and Star of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York, Ryan Serhant, was invited to speak at the closing event, "Partnering for Global Success," presented by The Wall Street Journal. Serhant's presentation entitled, "How to Rule the World -- Building Global Business in the New Era of Real Estate" outlined his "Ten Commandments of Global Marketing." Serhant explained that he developed the commandments as an educational tool for his international team. The commandments include, "Know thine potential buyers -- globally," "Knoweth what the global wealthy seek," "Advertise to thine buyers where they dwelleth," "Buildeth -- not an ark -- but a global network." Serhant said that education is critical to building a global business in the luxury residential real estate space and stressed the importance of understanding the markets and how they interconnect, "As economies have globalized, prominent cities around the world have become more interconnected with prominent cities in other countries than they are with less prominent cities in their home countries," said Serhant, "Through its business firms, London is more connected with New York City, Chicago and San Francisco than it is with other major British cities. In many ways, New York City is more connected with Tokyo, Rio, Mumbai and Hong Kong than it is with, say, Salt Lake City, Utah." Serhant said the population of wealthy people would grow considerably in the next ten years in the following global cities; Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Beijing, Delhi, Mexico City, Hong Kong, Houston and San Francisco.

The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...
Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
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 move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago.
