Tillster to Build Customized Online Ordering for Pizza Hut and KFC International Markets

Tillster Inc., the world class leader in digital engagement and ordering platforms for the quick service and fast casual restaurant industry, has been selected by Pizza Hut and KFC as the preferred partner for its global reference ordering applications. Through these agreements, the company will support regional Pizza Hut and KFC franchisees with best-in-class web applications that ensure a consistent user experience across various channels.

Utilizing a technology platform that allows customers to visualize and build their own pizzas and remember customers’ favorites and past orders, Tillster will work with Pizza Hut and KFC to ensure its overall brand is accurately represented while the application ensures necessary customization to meet market needs. The application will be built as a responsive design, and available to consumers via the web, on their mobile devices or on their tablets, with an optimized view for each platform.

“The ability to provide Pizza Hut and KFC with a global reference application – one that can be customized for their various markets – allowed us to show how scalable our integrated platform can be,” said Perse Faily, Chief Executive Officer of Tillster. “Our digital ordering platform will provide a new method to help Pizza Hut and KFC and their franchisees around the globe increase their bottom line and meet their aggressive revenue goals.”

With the launch of the localized Pizza Hut reference application in May 2014, Canada will be the first country to implement Tillster’s custom solution in the form of a new ordering website. Pizza Hut will immediately follow this with the launch of a reference application later this month in Thailand. More markets for Pizza Hut, as well as the launch of KFC, will follow soon thereafter.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
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.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
