Hoopla Establishes New Silicon Valley Headquarters

Hoopla, a leading provider of performance optimization solutions, today announced the opening of its new San Jose, Calif. headquarters. Founded in the Philadelphia region, Hoopla chose to open a new location to meet the rapidly growing demand for its applications, which help companies build high-performance cultures by applying game mechanics to business processes.

Hoopla’s solutions are being rapidly adopted by sales teams, service organizations, call centers, and other organizations to motivate employees to perform their best while forging stronger teamwork.

“Silicon Valley is a hub of business opportunities, where a high-performance culture is the difference between success and failure,” said Mike Smalls, Founder and CEO of Hoopla. “As more companies seek ways to motivate employees and supercharge business processes, Hoopla is expanding to meet this demand. With the addition of our Silicon Valley office, we can now better serve our rapidly growing base of customers and partners from coast to coast.”

To support the new location, Hoopla is growing its Silicon Valley team, and currently has openings for a software engineer, customer success manager, and an inside sales rep. These professionals will join Hoopla’s highly experienced team of salespeople, technology developers, and motivational psychology specialists.

Hoopla’s software as a service (SaaS) applications are licensed for a subscription fee and are available on the Salesforce.com AppExchange.

Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
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.
