MODERN MOM HITS THE ROAD: ModernMom.com Adds Auto Reviews to Its Growing Lineup of Resources for Today's Busy Mothers

LOS ANGELES, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- ModernMom.com, the leading online resource for today's busy moms, has added an exciting new feature to the site's existing lineup of informative and inspirational content. This first-of-its kind column, 'Mobile Mom', will run twice monthly and will present auto reviews from a mom's perspective, focusing on the features and options that really matter most to them.

Out of a best possible five "M" scale, each vehicle will be rated on its style; real world performance; comfort; family-friendliness, such as entertainment options, storage for strollers and other child-related gear; mom-essentials, such as space for purses and diaper bags, interior lighting and ease of reaching the back seat; and other essentials, including cost, horsepower, fuel economy and engine size.

"Research shows that women influence and are involved in the majority of car purchases today, yet very few outlets actually address the information that will help women make the best decision for their lifestyles," said Lolita Carrico, founder of Modern Mom. "How easily do the seats fold down? Is it Bluetooth enabled? Can I get it with a navigation system or keyless entry? Our Mobile Mom column breaks down the clutter of information to reveal what our readers really want to know."

In addition to auto reviews, the Mobile Mom column will also feature car accessory information, highlighting essential auto-related items for moms on the go.

ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
