Panasonic amplia o relacionamento com a Hendrick Motorsports

A Panasonic ampliou o relacionamento com a Hendrick Motorsports com um novo acordo plurianual que inclui o patrocínio principal para a equipe n° 24 de Jeff Gordon, quatro vezes campeão e atual líder de pontuação da NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. A Panasonic será apresentada como a principal patrocinadora da equipe n° 24 em duas corridas Sprint Cup anualmente e como parceira associada em todos os outros eventos. Será a primeira vez que a marca Panasonic aparecerá num carro de corrida desde que se juntou à Hendrick Motorsports como parceira tecnológica em 2007. O acordo cobre as etapas da NASCAR em 2014, 2015 e 2016.

O Panasonic Chevrolet SS n°24 de Gordon estreou em 22 de junho na Sonoma Raceway, Califórnia, e vai aparecer de novo em 31 de agosto, na Atlanta Motor Speedway. A marca Toughbook da Panasonic será exibida nos painéis laterais do carro em Sonoma.

"Para maximizar o valor de um patrocínio na NASCAR você precisa se associar com equipes e pilotos reconhecidos que exemplificam sua marca," disse Rance Poehler, Presidente da Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "A Hendrick Motorsports e Jeff Gordon tem um histórico de excelência que é a perfeita combinação para a Panasonic e sua marca Toughbook. Somos parceiros tecnológicos da Hendrick Motorsports há muitos anos e, à medida que nossos negócios evoluem em direção de soluções e parcerias mais profundas com nossos clientes, este é um excelente momento para ampliar nosso relacionamento, saindo dos bastidores e indo para o carro nas pistas.”

Os computadores Toughbook da Panasonic desempenham um papel-chave nas operações das corridas. “Quando introduzimos os Toughbooks da Panasonic em nossos negócios, o chefe da equipe e os engenheiros imediatamente disseram que amam este produto”, declarou Chris Newsome, Gerente de Infrastrutura de TI & Instalações, Hendrick Motorsports. “Dependemos da Panasonic," acrescentou Newsome. A Hendrick Motorsports também utiliza atualmente a tecnologia Panasonic na sua unidade de Concord, incluindo camcorders profissionais, monitores de tela plana profissionais, televisões, sinalização digital e unidades de projeção. A equipe também usa os produtos de vídeo profissionais da Panasonic para apoiar as capacidades de produção de vídeo de uso interno. A Panasonic vai alavancar a parceria para promover soluções e produtos tecnológicos para os negócios.

A Panasonic já ajudou o Sonoma Raceway, onde o Panasonic Chevrolet SS fez sua estreia, a reduzir seu impacto ambiental com a instalação de um sistema de geração de energia solar que fornece aproximadamente 40% da energia necessária ao circuito.

"A Panasonic tem uma combinação de pessoal e produtos de categoria internacional”, disse Rick Hendrick, proprietário da Hendrick Motorsports. "Usamos sua tecnologia em toda nossa organização e ela nos oferece os melhores instrumentos possíveis em todas as áreas, da competição ao marketing e a TI. O fato de que eles veem mais oportunidades para seus negócios e querem ampliar o relacionamento é uma mensagem muito positiva."

Gordon, 42 anos, que cresceu na vizinha Vallejo, Califórnia, é um dos pilotos mais bem sucedidos na história da NASCAR, com um recorde de cinco prêmios na Sprint Cup, no Sonoma Raceway. Ele é quatro vezes campeão da Sprint Cup e suas 89 vitórias o classificam em terceiro lugar na lista de vitórias de todos os tempos. Em quinze corridas dessa temporada, ele obteve uma vitória, esteve cinco vezes entre os cinco primeiros e onze vezes entre os dez principais finalistas da série. "Estamos ansiosos para trabalhar com a Panasonic de uma nova forma e não posso pensar em melhor lugar para esta estreia que com a equipe n° 24", disse Gordon, antes da corrida em Sonoma. "Este é o próximo passo de uma parceria que já é bem sucedida, e vai ser agradável passar para outro nível. Esperamos começar com uma vitória para Panasonic e Toughbook neste fim de semana."

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...
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
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...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

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.
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.
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...
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.
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
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...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
