FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai's award-winning Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Program added to its accolades as Veloster and Santa Fe won their category in the 2014 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards.

"Hyundai's CPO program gives customers an added level of comfort, satisfaction and peace of mind in their vehicle purchase," said Steve Flood, director, Sales Planning and Retail Operations, Hyundai Motor America. "By selecting a Hyundai CPO vehicle, consumers receive $2,066* of added value over a comparable non-certified used Hyundai. Veloster and Santa Fe are both excellent vehicles offering stylish design and functionality for different lifestyles, and as these awards show, great value."

The Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards are vehicle-specific honors that determine the best value certified pre-owned model in each segment. Using a statistical analysis, the company identified the Vincentric Best CPO Value in America winners by measuring which vehicles had lower-than-expected ownership costs given their market segment and price.

Vincentric measures cost of ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. Each CPO vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus D.C. assuming each has been driven 15,000 miles per year, with the expectation that they will be driven an additional 15,000 miles per year over the coming five years.

Hyundai's CPO program benefits include:

  • 10-year/100,000-mile CPO Powertrain Limited Warranty from the original in-service date and zero (0) miles
  • 150-point inspection
  • 10-year/Unlimited Mileage Roadside assistance from the original in-service date
  • Rental car reimbursement (up to $35/day for up to 10 days per occurrence)
  • Towing coverage to the nearest Hyundai dealership
  • Travel breakdown reimbursement (for breakdowns more than 150 miles from home, up to $100 per day, $500 per occurrence)
  • 90-days of no-charge SiriusXM® satellite radio (for vehicles equipped with SiriusXM®)
  • Complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History Reports™

*$2,066 represents the national value of benefits included in the purchase of a Hyundai CPO vehicle as compared to a non-certified used Hyundai. Since $2,066 represents an average for all Hyundai CPO vehicles sold nationally, individual value received may vary.

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...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a b...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for companies without hyper-scale resources.

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
