Je dromen achterna in Anfi Resorts Gran Canaria

ANFI DEL MAR, Gran Canaria, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Met zon het hele jaar door, een onwaarschijnlijk mooi landschap en prachtige stranden wist Gran Canaria gedurende eeuwen al reizigers te lokken. Een mengelmoes aan culturen en tradities heeft zijn stempel gedrukt op de plaatselijke keuken, kunst en architectuur - en de magie van het eiland trekt nog steeds moderne reizigers aan.

Anfi Resorts biedt reeds gedurende meer dan twee decennia luxeverblijven die gezinnen van over de hele wereld bekoren. Op een bevoorrechte plek in het zonnige zuiden van Gran Canaria, ingenesteld tussen twee bergen en de zee, biedt Anfi droomvakanties die alle verwachtingen overstijgen. Om de bron van deze droomvakanties terug te vinden, moeten we vijfentwintig jaar in de tijd terugreizen - naar de ongelooflijke visie van één man.

Tijdens een vistochtje langs de kust van Mogan aan het begin van zijn pensioen, zag de Noorse ondernemer Bjorn Lyng een indrukwekkende bergrug verschijnen boven een kleine met keien bedekte inham. Rond diezelfde tijd, in het buurdorpje Arguineguin, vierden Fernando Jiménez en zijn vrouw Eva Silva de geboorte van hun eerste zoon, David Josué Jiménez Silva - die later op een dag internationale voetbalfaam zou genieten.

Toen David in 1988 zijn eerste pasjes deed, was Bjorn Lyng trotse eigenaar geworden van de Playa de la Verga en de omliggende zone, en begon met de ambitieuze taak van het opwaarderen van de berg, die later Anfi del Mar zou worden.

In 2013 is het 25 jaar geleden sinds de berg werd uitgegraven - een jubileum waar het team bij Anfi uitermate trots op is. En wie beter om dit zilveren jubileum te helpen vieren dan de plaatselijke held - de internationaal bekende middenvelder David Silva.

In de loop van het jaar 2013, zal de Manchester City-speler een rol spelen in een Europese promotiecampagne als ambassadeur voor Anfi.  Zijn beeltenis zal prijken naast de foto's van Anfi - voornamelijk het strand van Anfi - op bussen, taxi's, metrostations en vliegtuigmagazines, waarbij men slogans zal zien die mensen moeten overtuigen van een bezoek aan Gran Canaria en Anfi: zoals "Dit is mijn strand", "Welkom in mijn huis" en "Tot binnenkort in Anfi."

De 26 jaar oude ster is opgetogen dat hij de Anfi Group in de belangrijkste Europese landen mag  vertegenwoordigen. Tijdens een recent bezoek met enkele van zijn ploegmaats zei Silva: "Wanneer ik maar kan, vlucht even naar Gran Canaria en breng mijn tijd door in Anfi - dit is voor mij een unieke plek in Europa. Ik ben er trots op dat ik een bedrijf met een dergelijk belang voor mijn eiland voor wat betreft het creëren van werkgelegenheid mag vertegenwoordigen".

Anfi Group CEO, José Luis Trujillo, is net zo blij met de aanwinst van Silva in het Anfi team - "David is een perfecte vertegenwoordiging van de waarden waar de Anfi Group voor staat. Hij is de belichaming van doorzettingsvermogen, winnersmentaliteit en samenwerking. We zijn opgetogen dat deze plaatselijke held met ons samenwerkt bij dit 25-jarig jubileum - een gelegenheid waarbij even wordt teruggeblikt en waarbij wij onze visie voor de ontwikkeling van Anfi voor de komende vijfentwintig jaar kunnen naar buiten brengen".

In de loop van het ganse jaar 2013 zal Anfi voor deze feestelijke gelegenheid loterijen, sociale netwerkcampagnes  en gelegenheden organiseren waarbij leden de kans zullen krijgen op een ontmoeting met Silva.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
