IoT and Utilities | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData #InternetOfThings

More than a decade ago, the choices were few to address the needs of data gathering and recording. Water and wastewater utilities, for example, had to be able to use a ‘fits all’ unit with set parameters and make their systems adaptable to the technology of the day. Since then, many municipal water systems such as those in Southern Utah, have had to broaden the area from which they gather, use and reclaim water. Most growing areas are even facing the dilemma of higher demands on services while trying to stay within shrinking budgets and manpower cutbacks. This is because in the past, many viewed electronic data gathering as a ‘want’ instead of a ‘need’ until now.

Hybrid Cloud Versus Hybrid IT: What’s the Hype? By @Kevin_Jackson | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Once again, the boardroom is in a bitter battle over what edict its members will now levy on their hapless IT organization. On one hand, hybrid cloud is all the rage. Adopting this option promises all the cost savings of public cloud with the security and comfort of private cloud. This environment would not only check the box for meeting the cloud computing mandate, but also position the organization as innovative and industry-leading. Why wouldn’t a forward-leaning management team go all in with cloud?

Going Beyond Defined Agile Methods By @DavidSprott | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - 5 hours 55 min ago
I’ve been spending nearly half my time in Philadelphia over the past while, and I just happened to have a spare Saturday yesterday, so I hightailed it downtown. I had two objectives – to explore the Museum of Art and to attend a Brahms concert by the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. One of the featured exhibitions in the adjacent Perelman Building caught my eye. It’s named, Work on What You Love: Bruce Mau Rethinking Design. I wasn’t sure what to expect; I certainly hadn’t heard of Bruce Mau before, but I am always interested in design and design methods.

Oracle Enables Telefónica Spain to Power New Services

Oracle Database News - 6 hours 10 min ago
Press Release Oracle Enables Telefónica Spain to Power New Services Oracle products help modernize the communications service provider’s network enabling it to deliver mass market services

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Feb 11, 2016

In a move to evolve its network to provide converged communications, leading European communications service provider (CSP) Telefónica Spain has chosen Oracle as a supplier of session border controller and will use the Oracle Communication Session Border Controller for its full portfolio of services which include residential services, mobile rich communication services (RCS), business services including SIP trunking, interconnection to support agreements with other CSPs, and Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

CSPs continue to evolve their network in order to offer innovative and differentiating services. This is especially true for traditional fixed-line and mobile carriers like Telefónica Spain. As the CSP planned to expand its converged services, it looked to Oracle to help it create a more flexible and secure network with Oracle Communications Session Border Controller. Telefónica Spain chose the Oracle product because it enabled it to:

  • Achieve faster time to market for services: The Oracle product offers the right mix of hardware and software to help create optimal performance for the individual services, while at the same time, simplifying network operations using a common, flexible software set across all services and platforms
  • Optimize network capacity and growth: Telefónica Spain will have more flexibility in how it uses its network because of Oracle Communications Session Border Controller’s network-wide licensing model
  • Increase network capabilities: The Oracle product meets Telefónica Spain’s high security standards, with its proven and rich feature set in the areas of transcoding, encryption and quality of service
  • Prepare for network function virtualization (NFV): Oracle Communications Session Border Controller offers virtualization for deployment flexibility and network agility, helping to ease Telefónica’s transition as it deploys its NFV platform, UNICA

“We are committed to offering the kinds of innovative services that our customers are demanding. The first step is creating the modern and reliable network that can accommodate the connectivity that these services require,” said Ángel Blázquez Martín, Core Network Director, Telefónica Spain. “This is a significant evolution for us, and so we wanted the most proven technology and vendor for session border controls, which is why we chose Oracle. We are looking forward to expanding our existing collaborative relationship.”

Oracle Communications Session Border Controller enables CSPs to deliver trusted, first-class real-time communications services across Internet Protocol (IP) network borders. The product is currently used for a variety of services and applications from Voice over IP (VoIP) to any services enabled by IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)—including VoLTE, video conferencing and calling, presence, instant messaging, IP television (IPTV), GSM Association’s IP Exchange (IPX), and femtocell or Wi-Fi–enabled fixed-mobile convergence.

“As CSPs provide more converged communications services to their subscribers, flexibility and security in the network become even more critical,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “Oracle Communications Session Border Controller is proven to deliver a solution to this challenge to many CSPs around the world, including for Telefónica Spain.”

How to Create a High Performing API: A New Perspective for 2016 | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Performance is the elusive butterfly of API development. Everybody is intrigued with its beauty, yet few know how to capture it. In the old days, the approach of many shops to ensure a performant API was to create some code and then pass it over to the wall to QA to do load testing. Later some integration testing took place. As long as the API worked and it was met some marginal performance benchmarks, things were good. This worked well when a public, HTTP based API, consumed by a wide variety of distributed devices was more the exception than the rule. However, today APIs are a big deal and they are everywhere, so much so that companies are posting very big infographics prominently in the front page of the New York Times to create even more awareness about the technology to the general public.
