  • IoT Keynote: Are You Seeing DOTS? | @ExpoDX #AI #IoT #IIoT #API #BigData #SmartCities #DigitalTransformation Wed, 16 May 2018 12:45:00 EDT
    The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.

  • Can a Freelancer Cost $500 an Hour? | @ExpoDX @Yegor256 #Java #Cloud #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #DigitalTransformation Tue, 15 May 2018 03:45:00 EDT
    A traditional way of software development efforts reimbursing is pay by the hour, which in case of remote programmers means $20-50 per hour, depening on the territory and the complexity of tech stack. However, what is the real amount of work programmers are delivering for that money? How many features and bug fixes they are usually capable of closing in a single working hour? Those metrics are rarely being calculated. In the presentation I will demonstrate the numbers obtained from over 30 projects completely in the last four years, all remotely. The numbers will show that the real amount of money we spend on coding is much higher than we expect.

  • Securing the SDDC | @CloudEXPO @TufinTech #AI #DevOps #Serverless #CloudNative #SDDC #Docker Sun, 13 May 2018 11:00:00 EDT
    The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, will discuss the main security considerations enterprises face when rolling out SDDCs and how they can harness key functionality of a virtual environment to achieve more granular security controls across hybrid environments.

  • DevOps and #Docker | @DevOpsSummit #Serverless #DevOps #CloudNative #Microservices #ContinuousDelivery Sun, 13 May 2018 06:45:00 EDT
    Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of DevOps with containers and the benefits. In addition, he discussed known issues and solutions for enterprise applications in containers.

  • DX and The Hospital Concierge System of the Future | @ExpoDX #DX #IoT #M2M #SmartCities Fri, 04 May 2018 18:00:00 EDT
    Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built an Alexa-powered voice application for both patients and nurses. Patients got answers for common questions, it provided service feedback and registered complaints. Nurses can register patient health metrics. They were only able to do this because of cloud-based technologies. The cloud enabled them to complete this complex project while ensuring compliance with HIPAA and other privacy regulations.

  • Serverless Your Job | @CloudExpo @DavidLinthicum #CloudNative #Serverless #DevOps #Microservices Sat, 10 Mar 2018 18:00:00 EST
    In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we’ve lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the constant monitoring of servers, provisioned or not, that’s required to support the workloads.

  • Jogl and Java 3D | @CloudExpo #Java #Linux #IoT #IIoT #AI #SmartCities Wed, 07 Mar 2018 12:30:00 EST
    We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rather long.

  • What Is Java #DevOps? | @DevOpsSummit #CloudNative #Serverless #SDN Tue, 27 Feb 2018 22:45:00 EST
    DevOps sees the coming together of practices, philosophies, and tools that allow you to create services and applications very quickly. This means that you can improve on your apps and evolve them at a much faster rate than those developers who are using traditional software development processes. We’ve talked about DevOps, in general, a great deal, but today, we’re going to dig a little deeper and take a look at Java DevOps specifically.

  • A Practical Guide to Java Remote Debugging | @CloudExpo #JVM #Java #Cloud Fri, 22 Dec 2017 14:00:00 EST
    Troubleshooting a problem on a remote server, especially in production, is not an easy task. Sometimes it involves debugging the application code directly on the server. But the production servers are usually run in a strict environment, where not all convenient developer tools are available. In this article, you'll discover how to configure a running web server and debug your application using standard facilities provided by the Java platform.
