MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/05/14 -- Erich Zuri has spent his work life in hotels, beginning as a director of Food & Beverage at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. On 13th January 2014, he found himself checking into another -- this time as the new general manager at the Munich Marriott Hotel.
Zuri's many years of experience in the hospitality industry make him the perfect fit as general manager of this Munich hotel near Marienplatz. His work has taken him from the US and around Europe, giving him experience that's truly an asset with the international clientele found at the Munich Marriott Hotel.
Zuri graduated from the HOSPA in Switzerland before heading off to Washington, DC, where he was director of Food & Beverage at the Mayflower Hotel and then the Madison Hotel. Staying in the city, he took a higher position at the State Plaza Hotel and Suites as general manager. With that experience under his belt, Zuri spent the next 4 years as general manager at the Renaissance Arlington Hotel in Virginia.
With Europe beckoning, Zuri headed to Prague, where he was general manager of the Renaissance Prague from 1994 to 1998. During this time, he was named Hotelier of the Year in the Czech Republic. His experience prior to joining this Munich hotel near city center also includes a stint as vice president for CTF Hotels and Resorts, a position he held from 1999 to 2006. The company, which has 72 luxury hotels and resorts in North America and Europe, gave him additional international experience, which Zuri took with him when he joined the staff at the Athens Ledra Marriott Hotel in 2006 as general manager. His last position before joining this Munich family hotel was as general manager of the Courtyard by Marriott Brussels.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
