Reimagine Collaboration & Productivity for the Modern Information Economy With the Revel Foundry on Aug. 7

Give us your doers, your planners, Your cubical-bound creatives yearning to breathe free... We lift our lamp beside the Foundry's golden door.

KIRKLAND, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- The Revel Foundry invites the public to a workshop to reimagine the future of knowledge work. The workshop will take place on Thursday, August 7, 2014 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Revel's headquarters in Kirkland, Wash. Register online via MeetUp.com.

In July, the largest players in technology and productivity including Apple, IBM and Microsoft, announced partnerships and strategic initiatives which will further accelerate the pace of innovation around collaboration and productivity. Simultaneously the walls, which traditionally establish the boundaries between work and home and competitor and partner, whether physical or intangible, are evaporating.

"I see an incredible opportunity to redefine work itself," said Vikas Kamran, Revel's CEO. "Transparency and agility are becoming increasingly important for innovation, especially when it comes to knowledge work. These recent announcements show a renewed commitment to designing products with these values at their core."

Knowledge workers are particularly suited to solve the problems they're facing. Their primary capital is information. Their deep experiences and intellectual curiosity primes them for work grounded in specialized non-routine problem solving.

Seattle consistently ranks near the top of the smartest cities, best places for entrepreneurs and best places to live lists. The city has and continues to attract a depth of knowledge worker talent unlike almost anywhere else in the world. Revel Foundry is simply providing space for them to come together to solve a problem.

"We invite knowledge workers to come together to imagine a world without boundaries and ensure Seattle's position as the hub for innovation in productivity," said Kamran. "We must continue to work towards people being able to collaborate wherever and however they want in a capacity above today's productivity standards. It's an exciting time to be in the Pacific Northwest."

Revel hosts similar workshops for divergent and convergent ideation internally and for clients on a regular cadence, but is now opening the workshops as a public beta of the Revel Foundry. The Revel Foundry is a platform where people come together to experiment, find inspiration and forge new solutions.

"These workshops create engaging experiences by unleashing the creativity of each participant and making a pre-defined vision of success come to life," said Michael Nguyen, Manager and change agent behind the Revel Foundry. "They are prime opportunities to share and acquire knowledge and skills of relevant topics by doing them."

The platform consists of spaces, experiences and information -- spanning the physical, digital or ethereal -- to serve the emerging generation of consultants and distributed knowledge workers.

Revel launched the public beta of its digital space, RevelFoundry.com, as the first space accessible to the public. It hosts content published from a select group of contributors from the firm. The content includes stories, insights, tools and curated links.

"Peers and competitors increasingly have access to the same information, technologies and talent pools due to globalization, the Internet and social media," said Tim Bowman, Revel's Manager of Strategy & Insights. "The differentiator is no longer the information or the people, it's how those people come together to leverage those resources; it's not about what we do, it's about how we do it."

Stories, videos and photos from previous Revel Foundry workshops are available at RevelFoundry.com.

The workshop is free to attend. Register online via MeetUp.com.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
