  • Data Science | @ThingsExpo #IoT #BigData #DigitalTransformation Wed, 27 Jul 2016 16:15:00 EDT
    You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead at PHEMI, discussed how data science is changing our ideas of what’s possible with data, using examples and case studies drawn from finance, precision medicine, and genomics.

  • Facing SaaS App Reality | @CloudExpo #API #SaaS #Cloud Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:15:00 EDT
    I'm often guilty of sticking my head in the sand, ignoring very small details that could turn into big problems later on. Like when Netflix told me my credit card was about to expire, but it seemed like such a boring task, so I ignored them...till the day Netflix stopped working. I grumbled at the TV for awhile, then wasted another half hour remembering my login details and finding the credit card update page. Clearly, I should have followed the easy link in the first place. It was my oversight that led me to waste time and my good mood updating my info. I consider missing my favorite television an actual problem in life, but realistically, it's a minor problem that only affected me (and the people I live with. I was pretty grumpy).

  • Next Gen IoT Platforms | @ThingsExpo #BigData #IoT #DigitalTransformation Wed, 27 Jul 2016 02:15:00 EDT
    The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development process, accelerating application delivery times, and ensuring that developers will become heroes (not bottlenecks) in the IoT revolution.

  • BMC Introduces MainView for Java Environments Enabling a Transaction Engine for Digital Business Tue, 03 May 2016 08:04:00 EDT
    BMC has announced MainView for Java Environments. This integrated systems management solution provides complete insight into how Java is consuming resources and affecting application performance on the modern mainframe. In the race to thrive as a digital business and to gain a competitive advantage, organizations are increasingly looking to Java for z/OS® to quickly develop applications. With the demand for instant service, always-available, high-performing applications, it is not surprising that 93 percent of mainframe organizations in a BMC survey said Java usage is growing or steady, and Java is the language of choice for writing new or rewriting existing mainframe applications. However, Java workloads can affect performance and availability on the mainframe, as they consume system resources without regard for the needs of other applications or services. An integrated management approach allows IT Operations a holistic view of the environment to quickly and easily discover Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) and to manage the effect of their resource consumption on application performance.

  • Implementing the Mediator Design Pattern in Angular 2 By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud Wed, 30 Mar 2016 09:00:00 EDT
    In any component-based framework you’ll need to implement component communications. The main principle is that components should be loosely coupled hence reusable hence testable. The mediator design pattern allows you to arrange component communications via “the man in the middle” so a component A never communicates with the component B directly. If a component needs data, someone will provide the data via bindings to the component’s input properties. Who’s this someone?Ain’t no business of the component. If a component needs to provide some data to the external world, it’ll emit events (with the data payload). Emits to whom? Ain’t no business of the component. Let whoever needs the data listen to the events from this component.

  • Frustrated by JavaScript? By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud Fri, 19 Feb 2016 12:30:00 EST
    I decide to write this blog after reading this post of a frustrated developer (he goes by the nick pistacchio) who couldn’t create a simple single-page application (SPA) in JavaScript in several days. Typically frustration is a result of unmet expectations and this is the case here as well. If pistachio would decide to create a simple app using the JavaScript framework he already knew, he could achieve his goal in 2-3 days allocated for this job. The problem is that he decided to achieve two goals:

  • Angular 2: Passing Data to Routes By @YFain | @ThingsExpo #IoT Fri, 29 Jan 2016 17:00:00 EST
    In the previous blog I did a high-level overview of Angular 2 router and wrote a basic routing application that demonstrated displaying different components in a predefined area of the window. We often need not only display a component, but also pass some data to it. For example, if we navigate from the Home to the Product Detail route we need to pass the product ID to the destination route. Angular offers a directive RouteParams so a route can receive data from the parent component. There is also a RouteData directive that can be used to pass additional data to a route from the @RouteConfig section. I’ll illustrate the use of both directives by modifying the app from the previous blog.
