El whisky de fascinante complejidad, rico sabor y excepcional suavidad toma la tradición de John Walker & Sons de mezclar para obtener un sabor grande e intenso inspirado por influencias de todo el mundo, en el siglo XXI.

Desde las cuatro esquinas de Escocia a las cuatro esquinas del mundo, Johnnie Walker siempre ha pasado fronteras para descubrir nuevos horizontes.  

Desde 1820, la familia Walker y sus agentes viajaron por todo el mundo, navegando por las famosas rutas comerciales: el Spice Road de Europa y Asia; la Royal Route de Europa a Persia; y la Gold Route de América y el Caribe, en busca de aventuras que proporcionasen nuevos negocios y experiencias enriquecidas.

Sus esfuerzos aseguraron que, por los años 20, Johnnie Walker había llegado a 120 países y estaba siendo disfrutado en las grandes líneas oceánicas de ferrocarril de lujo y los primeros vuelos transatlánticos. Mientras, la sorprendente imagen del hombre caminando de Johnnie Walker se convirtió en un icono en todo el mundo.

De vuelta a Londres, junto a las empresas marítimas y puertos desde los que los agentes de Johnnie Walker viajaron por todo el mundo, Alexander Walker estableció la Travellers' Room donde sus agentes podrían reunirse para descansar, comentar estrategias e intercambiar historias y muestras de sus viajes. Esos coloridos cuentos de exploración influyeron en Johnnie Walker Master Blenders, que comenzó a crear diferentes estilos de whisky para reflejar esas exóticas historias.

Hoy, esta tradición continúa a medida que Johnnie Walker lanza una serie de whiskies hechos exclusivamente para los viajeros - Johnnie Walker Explorers' Club Collection.

Las tres primeras combinaciones de la colección, conocidas colectivamente como Trade Routes Series, están inspiradas en la riqueza que se podría encontrar junto a las grandes rutas del comercio.

El primer lanzamiento, Johnnie Walker The Spice Road es una evocadora expresión de la vitalidad, aromas y especias que los agentes de Johnnie Walker habrían descubierto en los prósperos mercados de Asia. Se trata de un whisky de excepcional suavidad y rico sabor, madurado en barricas de roble viejo para un intenso acabado por los mercados de especias, pero aún fiel al estilo de la firma de Johnnie Walker.

 "Seleccionamos epecialmente whiskies para crear una mezcla intensa de intrigante complejidad inspirado en la riqueza de esta parte del mundo: hay un picante enérgico en la nariz, equilibrado por cítricos frescos. Los sabores suaves, ricos y de miel en el paladar, calentado por la dulzura de clavos, jengibre y vainilla, dan forma a un acabado lento del humo de la firma Johnnie Walker," comentó el Master Blender Jim Beveridge.

Steve White, director de marketing de Diageo Global Travel and Middle East, dijo: "El viajar está en el ADN de Johnnie Walker y son esas credenciales las que creemos que resonarán con los viajeros de hoy que están garantizando la fortaleza de sus viajes.

"Esta herencia de viajes y espíritu pionero de aventura hace de Johnnie Walker la compañía perfecta para los viajeros de hoy."

Con un precio de venta minorista recomendado de 43 dólares / 36,90 euros / 26 libras, Johnnie Walker The Spice Road estará disponible en tiendas libres de impuestos en Europa, Oriente Medio y Australia en diciembre. Estará disponible en tiendas libres de impuestos globalmente a partir de enero de 2013.

El segundo y tercer lanzamiento en Trade Routes Series - Johnnie Walker The Gold Route y Johnnie Walker The Royal Route estarán disponibles en tiendas libres de impuestos en 2013.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...
In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
In his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bruce Swann, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Adobe Campaign, explored the key ingredients of cross-channel marketing in a digital world.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, wil...
