PHOENIX, Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Web technology and development company, TechMoguls, unveiled the launch of "Floristopia.com" today at the start of SAF's (Society of American Florists) 130th Annual Convention in Marco Island, Florida. There have been many major developments in the floral industry recently, but perhaps none as significant as the launch of Floristopia.com, an innovative website designed to help consumers connect directly with the perfect local florist. The largest and most comprehensive florist directory and review site online, Floristopia.com features more than 35,000 local flower shops and wholesale florists throughout the United States and Canada.

Shopping local is an immensely popular movement that grows stronger every day. People want to support their local businesses and have a connection, a relationship, with the vendors in their towns. Floristopia.com supports the shop local movement by directly connecting consumers with local florists. The concept is simple: consumers can go to www.floristopia.com and search for local florists by entering a specific city, state, or zip code in the search navigation. With two clicks, consumers are able to access all pertinent information on local florists within their geographic search criteria. What makes the website unique is the vast array of technology and features that it offers to both consumers and florists. The website features a detailed landing page for each florist including pictures and videos as well as full social integration with Facebook and Twitter. In addition, consumers can save their favorite listings, post ratings and reviews, redeem "Deals" and more.

"We feel this type of service is long overdue in the floral industry," said Mr. Denham, a TechMoguls founding partner. "Our goal is to improve the consumer experience when it comes to helping consumers find a local florist in any given city." The service is free for both florists and consumers, although TechMoguls plans on florists paying for enhanced listing features over time. "Floristopia.com has real potential to change the way people buy flowers. We are excited to see how this new tool will affect the floral industry and where it could take us in the future," Denham further added.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
