The two-hour episode of Basketball and Beyond with Coach K will air nationwide on SiriusXM NBA Radio (XM channel 86, Sirius channel 207) and give listeners a preview of USA Basketball's summer events.  After the debut the special will replay August 4 at 11:00 pm ET/8:00 pm PT and will be available on SiriusXM On Demand.

The USA Men's National Team will play a series of exhibition games against Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Slovenia in advance of the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup, which begins August 30.  Coach K and co-host Joel Meyers will be joined on the program by USA Basketball assistant coaches Jim Boeheim, Monty Williams and Tom Thibodeau to preview the team and their upcoming competition. 

Listeners will also hear from several of the star players on the 2014 Men's National Team roster including Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis.

"We are excited to start our preparation for the World Cup and bring our SiriusXM listeners closer to the players and coaches who make USA Basketball such a special program," said Krzyzewski.  "We have a lot of work to do in the next several weeks.  This show will provide insight into the upcoming tournament, player personnel, coaching philosophies and the latest happenings in the sport of basketball."

"As USA Basketball prepares for what will be an exciting stretch of international play, we're thrilled to have Coach K give the fans this special preview," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer.  "Our listeners will get extraordinary insight from both the coaches and players into another talent-loaded U.S. team and the competition they'll face."

Krzyzewski has been involved with USA Basketball as a coach on and off since 1979, when he started out as an assistant to Bob Knight with the USA Pan American Games team that won gold.  Over that time he has helped lead the U.S. to nine gold medals, two silver medals and two bronze medals.  Since 2006, when USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo selected Krzyzewski as the Senior Men's National Team head coach, the USA is 62-1 in major international competitions.  With the gold medal victory in the 2012 London Olympics, Coach K became just the second coach in USA Men's history to earn consecutive Olympic golds.

Over 39 years as a head basketball coach, 34 of them at Duke University, Coach K has built one of the most extraordinary coaching resumes in sports history.  He is the all-time winningest head coach in NCAA Men's Division I basketball history with 983 victories, and has led Duke to four NCAA Championships, 13 ACC Tournament championships and 11 Final Four appearances. He was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001.

Basketball and Beyond with Coach K airs weekly during college basketball season on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 91.  On the show, Krzyzewski discusses a wide array of topical issues and interviews guests from the worlds of sports, business, entertainment and politics.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
