Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology and management consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it has entered into a broad and multi-faceted, mutually beneficial partnership with the St. Louis Rams. Under terms of the agreement, Perficient will receive marketing and corporate engagement opportunities, while the Rams will leverage Perficient’s deep technology solutions and application development expertise to improve football operations. Core to the relationship is a joint commitment to several important community-oriented initiatives.
“Like Perficient, the Rams are a civic-minded enterprise that cares deeply about investing time and resources back into the St. Louis region,” said Bill Davis, Perficient’s managing director of marketing and communications. “Their history of commitment to the community is inspiring, and we’re honored to join forces to further their tradition of giving back, lifting up and enabling those in need across our region.”
As the official community sponsor for the 2014 St. Louis Rams, Perficient will invest time, resources and dollars in supporting a variety of the Rams’ ongoing community-oriented initiatives. In addition to sponsoring the recent Coach Fisher and Friends Celebrity Softball Game, Perficient has become the sponsor of the Rams’ Staff Days of Service program, a monthly initiative where the Rams’ front office staff takes time out to volunteer with local non-profits. Since the program’s inception in 2009, the Rams have provided more than 9,000 hours of volunteer service to the community. The Rams’ annual Playground Build is the cornerstone effort of the Staff Day of Service program, and Perficient volunteers are participating in the 6th annual Playground Build at Marygrove, a residential treatment center dedicated to providing mental health services to severely disturbed children, young adults and their families who are economically disadvantaged. Perficient will also have a presence on the community section of the Rams’ web site and their logo will be on the players’ community appearance jerseys that are worn during the majority of charitable and off-the-field appearances.
“The Rams are excited to add another dynamic and fast-growing St. Louis corporation like Perficient to our partner family,” said Bob Reif, St. Louis Rams’ executive vice president and chief revenue officer. “Partnering with Perficient is meaningful because they share both our passion for community service and our interest in deploying innovative technologies to improve operations.”

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
