  • IoT Data Analytics | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #IIoT #BigData #Analytics Fri, 26 Aug 2016 05:45:00 EDT
    As IoT technologies attempt to live up to their promises to solve real-world problems and deliver consistent value for companies, there is still confusion among businesses on how to collect, store, and analyze a massive amount of IoT data generated from Internet-connected devices, both from industry and consumers, and unlock its value. Many businesses that are looking to collect and analyze IoT data are still unacquainted with the benefits and capabilities the IoT analytics technology offers, or struggle with how to analyze the data to continuously benefit their business in different ways such as cost reduction, improving product and services, safety and efficiency, and enhancing customer experience. Consequently, businesses still have the prospect of creating competitive advantage by mastering complex IoT technology and fully understanding the potential of IoT data analytics capabilities.

  • Docker Meets Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit #SDS #DevOps #Kubernetes Fri, 26 Aug 2016 03:15:00 EDT
    Kubernetes, Docker and containers are changing the world, and how companies are deploying their software and running their infrastructure. With the shift in how applications are built and deployed, new challenges must be solved. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, will discuss the implications of containerized applications/infrastructures and their impact on the enterprise. In a real world example based on Kubernetes, he will show how to migrate an existing application to Docker and Kubernetes, and what the benefits are.

  • Engaging Consumer Apps | @CloudExpo #Mobile #DigitalTransformation Fri, 26 Aug 2016 02:30:00 EDT
    The development of your app isn’t something that happens overnight, but rather it is something that takes place over time and through multiple iterations. While you may have developed the framework for your app already, improving engagement and innovating to provide a better user experience is a completely different process. There are plenty of ways that you can improve user engagement, but these five strategies will help you improve your app while also reducing the risk that your “innovative” updates actually decrease user engagement.

  • The True Cost of Downtime | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #IoT #DataCenter Fri, 26 Aug 2016 02:15:00 EDT
    Do you know how much your organization risks with every potential outage? Application performance issues can impact away more than revenue, your brand might take a substantial hit as well. Hundreds, thousands of potential customers could take to Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, the App Store and voice their complaints and give poor reviews simply because your app crashed, stalled, or they weren’t able to successfully check out.

  • Agile Analytics | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #BigData #ContinuousDelivery Fri, 26 Aug 2016 02:00:00 EDT
    In today’s digital economy, companies are faced with a fast data challenge as well as a Big Data one. As a result they are under pressure to adapt their analytics processes and data flows at pace to move beyond traditional data warehouse silos. Big Data projects are either too big or too complex to handle the traditional way. That’s why most projects by companies at the start of their Big Data initiative have no process at all. Waterfall approaches are notably inefficient as you probably won’t have access to proper staging environment and only limited time and scale for qualification.

    Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.

  • Infrastructure 101 | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #SDN #SDS #DataCenter Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:45:00 EDT
    In a series of articles, I am going to share my thoughts on the state of IT infrastructure and how we've arrived with current architecture trends. The topic today is SAN. Storage Area Networking (SAN) is a technology that solved a real problem that existed a couple decades ago. SANs have been a foundational piece of IT infrastructure architecture for a long time and have helped drive major innovations in storage. But how relevant are SANs today in the age of software-defined datacenters? Let's talk about how we have arrived at modern storage architecture.

  • Java Deserialization: Running Faster Than a Bear | @CloudExpo #API #Java #Cloud Mon, 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.

  • 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.
