LONDON, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
27.000 rejsende fra hele verden har stemt på New York som bedste by for natteliv
Lider man af søvnløshed, leder man efter gode nytårsløjer, eller har man bare ubændig lyst til en vild nat i byen? Så er det måske relevant at vide, at New York er byen, hvor man finder verdens bedste natteliv! Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com blandt 27.000 deltagere fra det meste af verden.
The Big Apple er verdens bedste by, hvis man vil have en rigtig god bytur!
27.000 rejsende fra det meste af verden har således stemt byen, der aldrig sover, ind på førstepladsen over de storbyer, som man kan have den bedste fest i. New York er dermed suverænt den bedste party-by i verden. Hernæst følger gamblerparadiset Las Vegas og urbane London.
Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com.
Europa er bedst til fest
Undersøgelsen viser også, at selvom både første- og andenpladsen på listen går til byer i USA, så er de seks ud af de ti bedste nattelivs-byer europæiske.
Både London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam og Madrid er således repræsenteret i top 10. Mens Los Angeles og Bangkok, som den eneste asiatiske by, indtager niende- og tiendepladsen.
"New York og Las Vegas er byer, hvor man altid er garanteret et godt rejseeventyr. Men det er forskelligheden i de europæiske byer, der gør dem så interessante og spændende for rejsende fra hele verden," mener Alison Couper fra Hotels.com og fortsætter:
"Der er derfor også mange forskellige oplevelser at hente på tværs af Europa, uanset om det er en nat på en af de berygtede klubber i Berlin, middag på en flydende restaurant eller hygge på coffee shop i Amsterdam eller et besøg på en af Paris' små, intime barer og spillesteder."
Danskerne har den bedste fest i London
Danskerne er da heller ikke nødvendigvis enige i, at New York er det bedste sted at feste. På den danske top 10 indtager New York nemlig en fjerdeplads - efter både London, Berlin og Paris.
På femtepladsen udpeger vi desuden København, der ikke figurerer på listen over bedste party-byer i den globale undersøgelse.
Top 10: Verdens bedste by til natteliv:
- New York
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
Danskernes top 10:
- New York

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...
