David Selakovic Promotes Selacorp's 'From Office to Streets' Initiative

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- The annual research report by the CNCS, the Corporation for National and Community Service, showed that with one out of every four Americans volunteering through an organization, the willingness to support community services in the United States is very strong amongst citizens of all generations. According to the report, 64.5 million Americans volunteered almost 7.9 billion hours of their time in 2012, which amounts to an estimated value of nearly $175 billion, based on the estimated value of one volunteer hour. The trend of serving to improve the quality of life of neighbors and local communities has been increasing over the past 11 years, a movement that is fostered by more and more companies that organize activities in order to get employees involved in local community services.

One company that has been fostering community projects and initiatives for many years is Selacorp, an all-in-one business solutions provider with offices in Las Vegas, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. "We believe that it is our duty to be proactive in our society," explains Managing Director, David Selakovic. Instead of merely donating money, Selacorp gets actively involved in what Selakovic describes as a "From Office to Streets" initiative. "We go to orphanages, take care of kids, give food to people, clean the streets or provide entertainment. Our goal is simple: To educate not only the people outside but all our employees no matter what their position is, that when they go out, they have a social responsibility and no matter how small or big this may be, they can be a big asset to community development."

David Selakovic, who is not only a highly impactful business leader, but also an active philanthropist, believes that the company's projects help employees as well as residents living in the supported communities. He says he has witnessed a sense of camaraderie growing out of the mutual efforts of Selacorp employees, their bosses and executives to improve the lives of others that have had a very positive effect on employees' work attitudes as well as their general approach to life. Selakovic once revealed that his philosophy for his business as well as for his private life was an adage attributed to Abraham Lincoln: "Ability may get you to the top, but its character that will keep you there." Spearheading the "From Office to Streets" initiative shows that Selakovic really believes in Lincoln's wise words.

Originally from Slovenia and having lived in various countries around the globe, David Dragan Selakovic is currently based in Singapore. From there he manages Selacorp, one of his biggest success stories to date. Selacorp is a leading international company that specializes in strategic IT resources and intellectual asset management. The company provides flexible, creative and resourceful services, products and innovations that live up to global expectations. Thanks to his experience in finance and his expertise as an information technology software architect and developer, Selakovic successfully launched Selacorp and set the stage for a new global market. A sought-after corporate adviser, David Selakovic is known for his engaging style, expert advice, and keen insights on business building.

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.

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.

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...
