[session] #Compliance in the Cloud | @CloudExpo @IBMcloud #DevOps #InfoSec

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 10/26/2016 - 15:00
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task. CSPs need a foundation that provides a uniform, non-repetitive view across all the requirements.

[session] Internet Great Again | @CloudExpo @ERave02 #IoT #Cybersecurity

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 10/26/2016 - 14:45
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does not address real-time apps, video, conferencing and collaboration, which is the Internet. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Elad Rave, CEO and co-founder of Teridion, will discuss why.

[session] @IBMBluemix By @RagsS | @CloudExpo #IoT #Docker #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 10/26/2016 - 11:15
As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The Microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. Serverless computing is revolutionizing computing. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, an Architect/Developer Evangelist at IBM, will discuss the Microservices architecture, 12-factor app, containers, etc., and how to architect applications for the cloud in general and Cloud Foundry in particular.

[session] #FogComputing & #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #IoT #BigData

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 10/25/2016 - 16:45
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 and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development process, accelerate application delivery times, and ensure that developers will become heroes (not bottlenecks) in the IoT revolution.

[session] #IoT Software Delivery Challenges | @ThingsExpo #M2M #API

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 10/25/2016 - 16:30
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target – this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software updates for IoT more problematic. How do you coordinate the diverse moving parts that must come together when developing your IoT product or updating each of its components?

[session] IoT Intelligence | @ThingsExpo @BsquareCorp #BigData #IoT #M2M

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 10/25/2016 - 15:45
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of the cloud. This enables companies to realize their business objectives by creating an architecture that is distributed, fast and cost-effective.

[session] Optimizing Ops | @DevOpsSummit @RedHatNews @GHaff #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 10/25/2016 - 14:45
operations aren’t merging to become one discipline. Nor is operations simply going away. Rather, DevOps is leading software development and operations – together with other practices such as security – to collaborate and coexist with less overhead and conflict than in the past. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will discuss what modern operational practices look like in a world in which applications are more loosely coupled, are developed using DevOps approaches, and are deployed on software-defined, and often containerized, infrastructures – and where operations itself is increasingly another “as a service” capability from the perspective of developers.

A Harsh #BigData Message | @BigDataExpo #Analytics #DigitalTransformation

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 10/25/2016 - 04:45
This is a short blog with a harsh message for Big Data vendors. Camera fades in to Pastor Schmarzo heading to the pulpit… What does the future hold for today’s big data vendors? Hundreds of startups are rushing into the big data market to stake their claim to a market that IDC predicts will reach $187 billion by 2019. Dang, that’s a big market, especially considering that the Global Business Intelligence market will only reach a trifling $20.8 billion by 2018 or the long-running ERP applications market is expected to reach a trivial $84.1 billion by 2020. Yes, the big data market opportunity is very exciting indeed!

[panel] #BigData and #DevOps | @CloudExpo #MachineLearning #Blockchain

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sun, 10/23/2016 - 10:15
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 19th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will explore this emerging use of Big Data generated by the digital business to complete the DevOps feedback loop, and inform operational and application decisions.
