Ein letzter Paukenschlag vor dem Ende der Welt

GENF, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

27'000 Reisende aus aller Welt wählten New York zur besten Nightlife-City

Am 21. Dezember geht gemäss Maya Kalender die Welt unter. Wo also sollte man seine letzten Stunden auf Erden verbringen? Zuhause mit Freunden ist sicher eine Möglichkeit. Aber warum nicht auch mit einem letzten grossen Paukenschlag bei einer grandiosen Party in New York?

Der Hotel-Experte Hotels.com hat kürzlich in einer Studie herausgefunden, dass New York die beliebteste Stadt für ein unübertreffliches Nachtleben ist. 27'000 Reisende aus aller Welt wurden befragt und wählten den Big Apple zur weltbesten Stadt in Sachen Nightlife Entertainment. Das Casino-Paradies Las Vegas ist der Weltenbummler zweite Wahl, während London auf Platz drei folgt.

Obwohl die Gold- und Silbermedaillen an die USA gehen, zeigt die Studie auch, dass sechs der Top Ten Nightlife-Städte in Europa liegen. Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam und Madrid schafften es ebenfalls in die weltweite Lieblingsliste. Bangkok gelang dies als einziger asiatischer Stadt.

"New York und Las Vegas bieten immer ein atemberaubendes Reise-Abenteuer. Aber es ist die Vielfalt der europäischen Städte, die sie so faszinierend für Reisende aus aller Welt machen," sagt Alison Couper von Hotels.com. "Auf dem Kontinent kann man so vielseitige Erfahrungen machen. Sei es eine Ausgehnacht in den berühmt-berüchtigten Clubs von Berlin, in Amsterdam mit seinen schwimmenden Restaurants und der Coffee-Shop-Kultur oder in Paris, mit seinen kleinen, vertrauten Bars und Musikkneipen."

Die Mehrheit der Schweizer Umfrageteilnehmer wählte das Zürcher Nachtleben an zweiter Stelle hinter New York. Gefolgt von Paris, London und Berlin. Aber wenn man sich die Zahlen genauer ansieht, zeigt sich, dass die Westschweiz immer noch das Pariser Nachtleben vorzieht!

Na dann mal los auf die Party des Lebens!

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In today's uber-connected, consumer-centric, cloud-enabled, insights-driven, multi-device, global world, the focus of solutions has shifted from the product that is sold to the person who is buying the product or service. Enterprises have rebranded their business around the consumers of their products. The buyer is the person and the focus is not on the offering. The person is connected through multiple devices, wearables, at home, on the road, and in multiple locations, sometimes simultaneously...
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
