Jump on Free Cloud Storage (with Caution!) By @IanKhanLive | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 01:30
Imagine the scenes from any of the last few Black Fridays with people lined up for days to grab the new flat screen TV or a new iPhone. The moment the gates open up there is usually a crowd of people swarming like bees, trying to get their hands on what they can, and yes there were also many reported cases of snatching, grabbing and what not. If only the world of cloud storage could be so dramatic!

Now feeling full and contemplative, I thought I’d join the club and write about the big industry news: Anthem’s massive loss of customer and employee data.

The Internet of Me, Myself and I By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sun, 02/15/2015 - 17:00
What happens when the gadgets you wear also control the things around you? No doubt you’ve heard of various internet-connected things like light bulbs, coffee makers and thermostats making their way into our homes. And no doubt, you’ve probably heard of such devices that you wear (or insert) to track your fitness, sleeping or even blood sugar levels. But when that sleeping monitor can alert the light bulb and coffee machine that you are about to wake up, that’s called the Internet of Self. Data from your body that is used to control the objects around you. Your body controls the your environment, without you even knowing. Cool and for me, a bit unnerving at the same time.

Programmability "in" the Network By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sun, 02/15/2015 - 16:00
"Programmability in the network" is a wordy yet simpler way to describe the extension of network capabilities through the use of software-defined techniques. See what I mean? In any case, whatever you want to call it, there are two distinct methods of leveraging programmability in the network. One is specifically tied to SDN, using the extensible capability of an SDN controller supportive of a plug-in, module or app-based model. The second is more broadly applicable (in that it can be used for SDN but also as part of traditional or legacy architectural approaches as well) and implements an in-path model for executing logic (programmability) on inbound and outbound traffic. As usual, I think a picture can probably suffice to explain it fully instead of inundating you with words, words and more words.

Monitoring Mobile Users Valentine’s Day By @Neotys | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/13/2015 - 02:00
Just as big box stores will see an increase in foot traffic, web outlets will also see more consumer transactions in the days prior. With increased mobile use, it is important to remember to test both your web and mobile application versions, and everything in between. If not, you may think that your mobile site will be prepared to handle the load, when it might not.

DevOps Use on the Rise, But Confusion Remains By @Skytap | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 21:00
​I recently poured over F5’s “The State of Application Delivery in 2015” and InformationWeek’s “2015 App Dev Priorities Survey” that they presented with Dr. Dobb’s. The similarity of their titles, and even their release dates made me wonder how unique each of their findings would be, and I challenged myself to flush out any interesting findings or patterns that emerged from their collective research. Both reports were really well done, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to see if your organization is on the right path of change, or to anyone who knows you’re not on the right path, but you’re willing to get on it—if you could just figure out where it is.

SDNs in the Carrier Hotel By @JohnSavageau [#SDN]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 16:15
While layer 1 (physical) interconnection of network resources will always be required – the bits need to flow on fiber or wireless at some point, the future of carrier and service resource intercommunications must evolve to accept and acknowledge the need for user-driven, near real time provisioning of network and other service resources, on a global scale.

New Rules of Digital Engagement By @MLeray24 | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 15:00
Good food is not the most important attribute for a restaurant. Cleanliness is. It doesn’t matter how great your dishes are – if patrons catch even a glimpse of a roach, they won’t stick around to sample your cooking. The same principle applies to your company’s digital experience. You may have great products at a great price. But if customers have a bad experience with your digital channels, they won’t buy from you. In fact, studies show that 73-82% of customers abandon intended purchases because of a poor online experience.

‘The Data Science of Email’ By @SendGrid | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 07:30
There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics.

Public Cloud Security Demands a CASB By @PaigeLeidig | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 22:30
If your business has any investment in public cloud SaaS applications, then it’s time to invest in a Cloud Access Service Broker (CASB). That’s our takeaway from the recently released Gartner security report, “Emerging Technology Analysis: Cloud Access Security Brokers.” More and more enterprises of all sizes are adopting the public cloud, thanks to the cost savings and flexibility and scalability benefits SaaS providers offer. Ninety percent of enterprises that have adopted public cloud applications plan to put more than half their spending towards enterprise SaaS applications by 2018. But they’re doing so in a time rife with public cloud security and privacy concerns, which have turned other organizations way from the cloud. According to Gartner, security and privacy continue to be the top reasons for businesses to avoid SaaS – a choice that offers some security benefits but ultimately hamstrings cloud-averse organizations.
