"The NRF 'Big Show' is a highly attended and leading event for the retail industry at large," commented Best. "Mercent is pleased to enter 2013 with our largest portfolio of enterprise retail clients and look forward to a week's worth of private meetings and events where we can gain valuable insights and feedback from merchants, and in exchange, share in-house expertise to guide them to a successful and profitable New Year."

Complementing its attendance at the NRF "Big Show," Mercent is hosting a private Retail Executive Forum led by an expert leadership panel featuring Google's head of Google Shopping Jon Venverloh, Citi Investment Research's lead Retail Analyst Deborah Weinswig and Redcats' VP of eCommerce Yann Tanini.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
