Pingsta Pioneers Workforce-in-the-Cloud Service to Help Organizations Monetize Excess In-House Intellectual Capital

SILICON VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Pingsta - the collaborative platform for Internet experts and Network-Expertise-in-the-Cloud(TM) service provider - today announced the launch of Virtual Private ICET (VPI), a subscription-based service that enables enterprises, IT service providers and Government agencies worldwide to enhance workforce collaboration, capture reusable knowledge and monetize excess intellectual capacity to generate new, green revenue streams.

The lack of a plug-and-play customer-workforce collaboration and knowledge capture platform hinders the agility and scalability of organizations, resulting in reduced productivity and increased operational costs. Furthermore, recent industry research shows that all organizational workforce is underutilized leading to about US$1,000 worth of untapped excess intellectual capital going to waste every day per knowledgeable employee. Pingsta VPIT provides clients with a quantifiable path to IT cost savings and revenue generation via a secure cloud-based platform. Pingsta VPIT is fully customized with real-time connection features such as user task feeds, ongoing knowledge capture and validation tools, as well as the capacity to monetize excess intellectual capital.

"With Pingsta VPI, organizations can now create their own workforce-in-the-cloud platform across all industries and areas of expertise, enhance collaboration like never before and monetize excess intellectual capital to generate a new differentiated revenue stream," said Deka Yussuf, VP of Marketing at Pingsta. "Imagine a scenario where Internet Service Provider A has a certain critical skill set in its VPI cloud that Internet Service Provider B requires urgently to roll out a new service. Rather than ISP B going out to hire engineers, it simply taps into ISP A's VPI cloud for the needed skill set on-demand and only pays per use."

"The opening up of our APIs to enable the integration of third-party corporate applications into the Pingsta VPI platform will greatly enhance the user-experience," added Tobi Knaup, Lead Software Architect at Pingsta.

Pingsta VPIT is available in three editions

* Gold - for Enterprises across all industry segments

* Platinum - for Service Providers

* Government - for Government agencies

Pingsta VPIT is already drawing the attention of large IT service providers and enterprises with several pilots scheduled from Q1 2010. For more on Pingsta VPIT, see http://pingsta.com/products/vpi.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
A valuable conference experience generates new contacts, sales leads, potential strategic partners and potential investors; helps gather competitive intelligence and even provides inspiration for new products and services. Conference Guru works with conference organizers to pass great deals to great conferences, helping you discover new conferences and increase your return on investment.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
