Officescape® Office on Demand℠ Network Tops 1,500 Locations

Officescape continues to expand its network of Office on Demand℠ locations, now numbering more than 1,500, offering more options for the type of spaces that can be reserved and adding facilities in new business markets. With the recent roll-out of Officescape’s redesigned website and the first-of-its-kind location search engine, earlier in 2012, Officescape makes it simple for anyone to reserve office space and meeting rooms in virtually any city they choose, by the hour, day or month.

Building upon the success of its office and meeting room network, Officescape has begun to focus on development of a network of large conference rooms and event centers that can accommodate more than 25 people. The number of these conference rooms has grown to more than 600 as Officescape’s clients begin to reserve them for large corporate meetings, conferences, parties and more. The number of office and meeting room spaces available has also continued to increase with significant domestic growth in New York City, Los Angeles, Houston and Dallas and internationally in the United Kingdom.

In addition, Officescape’s on-demand reservation tool now allows anyone to reserve on-demand space at any of these 1,500+ locations. This ability was previously limited to only those with Officescape Memberships ($50 annual fee) but is now available to those with a Virtual Office 2.0 account (Free). A simple search of each location can be done directly from Officescape’s home page and sign-up for a Virtual Office 2.0 account can be done after selecting an ideal location and takes only minutes to complete. A reservation app for mobile devices will also be available to the public soon, which will further simplify the reservation process.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
