Six Daily Tips for #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #Docker #APM #MicroservicesWed, 26 Oct 2016 02:30:00 EDT At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling.
To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone knows what everyone else is doing can create a real team spirit and social cohesion that will drive DevOps forward. Here are six tips that can be implemented to help you get there.
[session] Agility for #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #MLTue, 25 Oct 2016 17:45:00 EDT Successful digital transformation requires new organizational competencies and capabilities. Research tells us that the biggest impediment to successful transformation is human; consequently, the biggest enabler is a properly skilled and empowered workforce. In the digital age, new individual and collective competencies are required.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bob Newhouse, CEO and founder of Agilitiv, will draw together recent research and lessons learned from emerging and established companies, providing a road map for engaging our organizations in the creation and support of digital value chains.
Java Deserialization: Running Faster Than a Bear | @CloudExpo #API #Java #CloudMon, 20 Jun 2016 16:42:00 EDT Software components that were once good can sour instantly when new vulnerabilities are discovered within them. When that happens, the bears are coming, and you have to respond quickly.
Two men are walking through a forest. Suddenly, they see a bear off in the distance, running toward them. Adrenaline pumping, they start running away. But then one of them stops, takes some running shoes from his bag and starts putting them on.
“Frank, what are you doing?” says the other man. “Do you think you will run faster than the bear with those?”
“I don’t need to run faster than the bear,” Frank replies. “I just have to run faster than you.”
This scenario repeats itself every time a new security vulnerability is discovered in a widely used open source component. Imagine the bear as your adversary. Rushing to attack when easy prey is present. Your response time is critical.

Audit Certificate Inventory in Java/JDK | @CloudExpo #API #Java #CloudTue, 03 May 2016 09:35:00 EDT The purpose of this document describes how to generate a report for all the certificates using in the Java environment by using a simple shell script. The script checks all certificates that are stored in Keystores. The script generates a report in the form of CSV file and the report contains the hostname, Keystore Name, Certificate Alias, Issues to (common name), Issued by, Expire in number of Days and Expiration Date.
BMC Introduces MainView for Java Environments Enabling a Transaction Engine for Digital BusinessTue, 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.
SAP Hybris: Achieving Omni-channel with Application PerformanceMon, 02 May 2016 12:01:00 EDT The retail industry is transforming in today’s digital age. Consumer behavior keeps evolving and online spending is skyrocketing. In addition, retail customers are looking for a blended online and in-store experience and expecting brick-and-mortar stores and online channels to be integrated through an omni-channel strategy. This requires retailers to become customer obsessed and strive to deliver personalized, convenient and seamless shopping experiences online and in the stores.
Implementing the Mediator Design Pattern in Angular 2 By @YFain | @CloudExpo #CloudWed, 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.
Angular 2: Passing Data to Routes By @YFain | @ThingsExpo #IoTFri, 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.
