Eight Things to Know Before Starting ARA | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 03/01/2017 - 18:00
Since the start of this decade, Agile development patterns such as Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum and Feature-Driven Development (FDD) have been all the rage. That shift has led to massive gains in developer productivity, resulting in more applications and associated updates being delivered at increasingly faster rates. Until recently, there has been little in the way of real governance being applied to how applications are being released into production, to which team and on what schedule. Stepping into the void are application release automation (ARA) tools that provide the framework required for managing the roll out of applications at unprecedented levels of scale and speed.

[video] #BigData-Driven #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #IoT #SDN #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 03/01/2017 - 01:15
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.

[video] #IoT Keynote: Are You Seeing DOTS? | @ThingsExpo #M2M #BigData

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 22:45
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.

The Case for DNS Redundancy | @DevOpsSummit @Catchpoint #AI #WebPerf

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 14:15
The Domain Name System, or DNS, provides the location/IP address of the server that hosts the domain that you are trying to access. The DNS resolution process (as explained in the image below) is the first step in the sequence of events that are triggered when you enter a domain name into your browser. If this process does not complete, the end user is left facing an error page stating, “Server Not Found/Webpage Not Available.” The user experience can be affected if DNS availability is compromised; user frustration is proven to lead to loss of revenue and brand reliability.

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 17:15
Smart phones. Smart TVs. Smart toilet seats (yes that is a thing!). Let’s face it, smart technology surrounds us. It has become a de facto part of our everyday lives. The Internet of Things is growing at breakneck speeds. No matter which analyst you read, the growth predictions are staggering. Gartner predicts that we will hit over 20 billion (with a B) devices by 2020. IHS predicts even larger numbers, with 30 billion by 2020, and over 75 billion devices by 2025. No matter what, that’s a lot of devices. A lot of the devices will be with us, on us, in our homes. All of them will be collecting information, sending large amounts of data up into the cloud. Many times without us even being aware of it.
