Akamai Reaches The Beach

Twelve co workers crammed into vans all weekend? No sleep? No showers? Camping out under the stars? Running in the woods at night? This is not everyone's idea of a good time but for Team Faster Forward - Akamai it was an amazing experience we will never forget.
Many charitable organizations have been established over time and people have found innovative ways to give back to each charity. However, none of these efforts have come close to the magnitude with which the #IceBucketChallenge has spread awareness across different social mediums. This challenge has raised millions of dollars since its inception. Touched by the world's efforts to spread awareness and help raise charitable contributions to benefit Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS),we at Akamai Customer Care - East, decided to do our part. We took the Ice Bucket Challenge and we now nominate the Global Akamai teams for Customer Care and Professional Services, as well as our valued Customers to get involved! Our motive behind extending the challenge to these teams, as opposed to individuals, was to reach out to a larger audience.

Cisco and Akamai Announce Solution to Enable Digital Experiences and Relieve Network Congestion

Today marks another important milestone in Akamai's relationship with Cisco. Together we are enabling IT to respond to the business challenges to support the huge traffic increases brought on by the digital era.  Specifically, the IT challenge of supporting business leaders who are innovating at the branch office. Consider a retailer engaging customers with mobile assisted selling apps, digital displays and customer wi-fi. Think about a banker building out virtual branches to promote new financial services. Contemplate educators delivering a rich media curriculum to thousands of students. Reflect on business leaders adopting myriad digital experiences to improve productivity and drive revenues. In all these situations, organizations across the board are adopting new applications and services that require significantly more bandwidth than has been required in these "branch" locations. As important, these applications are no longer being hosted solely within the corporate data center. They are delivered from private or public cloud infrastructures, or directly from the Internet as a SaaS application.


OPEN Thoughts

It was only six months ago that Akamai opened its core technology, revealing the Open Platform Initiative strategy. The main idea was to enable everyone; every developer, every customer and every partner, to access Akamai technology and benefit from its amazing power. You may arguably say that this was a small step on a long path. But let's look back and see how much we walked, using the evolution of technology as our context.

As technology has evolved, there were milestones that changed the way we use it in our lives, milestones that changed and improved things forever. More importantly, technology plays a key role in the way we all behave, communicate, learn, share and spend our leisure time. Technology is now part of our lives, as it was never before.
