MindEdge Releases White Paper on Effective Writing; Offers Online Programs to Improve Business Communication

WALTHAM, Mass., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- MindEdge today released a white paper on "Writing for your reader: 'So where are the people?'" by Jefferson Flanders, an author, educator and independent journalist. The white paper, available at http://www.mindedge.com/whitepaper.php, suggests that practical and personal writing offers a way to reach readers and audiences -- and is a key for the successful exchange of ideas and delivery of important information. Flanders writes: "Clear, concise writing that engages the reader will always win out over lengthy and dense prose. Whenever possible, stress the personal: what will your message mean to the reader?" Flanders argues for a practical approach, reflecting a perspective gained during his career as an editor, newspaper columnist, sportswriter, radio commentator, college professor and publishing executive. (A contributor of occasional opinion pieces to newspapers, his blog, Neither Red nor Blue, is syndicated by BlogBurst.)

This practical and personal approach to writing and communication is the foundation for several online programs offered by MindEdge aimed at improving business communications. These programs include "Effective Business Communication," "Strategic Communications" and "Organizing and Presenting." The programs are available to higher education, corporate education or continuing education organizations looking to enhance communication skills and competencies for their students or employees.

MindEdge is an educational content provider, publisher, and supplier of online programs for adult learners. Clients include Harvard Business School and Boston University, as well as major corporations. Using relevant, engaging online content and affordable supporting course texts and article compilations, MindEdge helps adults build essential skills and competencies.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

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 ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
