Social Media Breakfast Calgary #37, 8:30 am - 10:30am, Friday, February 15, 2013 Melrose Café & Bar

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- The Calgary Social Media Breakfast (SMBYYC) is pleased to announce Jeff Nelson and Joel Olandesca as the February SMBYYC speakers:

Pinterest - Falling Down at Rabbit Hole

If you are a "Pinner", you know what it's like. If not, welcome to the wacky world of Pinterest. During this presentation, Jeff Nelson will challenge you to explore pinning, re-pinning, commenting, linking, and integrating boards. He will also give you some tips and tricks on how to use Pinterest for your business.

Instagram - (mobile) Photography - That's Quite the Phone You Have Attached To Your Camera!

We've all taken a pic or two with our smartphone. You press a button, edit it (maybe), then post it for the world to see - so what's the big deal? During his talk, Joel Olandesca will open a film can of worms as he talks about how this form of photography has emerged, where it's at today and where it's possibly headed. Is it even headed somewhere...or is it just a fad, like the internets?

Post discussion, Jeff and Joel will answer audience questions in an interactive Q&A.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP at http://www.amiando.com/smbyyc37

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data.

Is the ongoing quest for agility in the data center forcing you to evaluate how to be a part of infrastructure automation efforts? As organizations evolve toward bimodal IT operations, they are embracing new service delivery models and leveraging virtualization to increase infrastructure agility. Therefore, the network must evolve in parallel to become equally agile. Read this essential piece of Gartner research for recommendations on achieving greater agility.
