Digital Crossfire | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc @Aruna13 #DevOps #API #AI #ML

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 01/16/2017 - 14:15
Brand owners are caught in a digital crossfire. From one direction comes intense competitive pressure to innovate or to at least follow very, very quickly. From the precisely opposite direction comes the potentially existential threat of an app very publicly flopping or – even worse – being very publicly revealed to jeopardize the customer’s well-being. Either way, you lose brand value in a social marketplace where brand is your primary currency. What’s a brand owner to do?

Three #DevOps Predictions | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc @Aruna13 #DevSecOps

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 01/16/2017 - 14:15
A lot of time, resources and energy has been invested over the past few years on de-siloing development and operations. And with good reason. DevOps is enabling organizations to more aggressively increase their digital agility, while at the same time reducing digital costs and risks. But as 2017 approaches, the hottest trends in DevOps aren’t specifically about dev or ops. They’re about testing, security, and metrics.

[slides] Network-Aware #Orchestration | @CloudExpo #SDN #AI #DataCenter

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 01/16/2017 - 10:00
Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing performance and reducing operational risk through standardization and best-practice architectures.

Cloud #APM | @CloudExpo @CAinc @Aruna13 #APM #DevOps #ML #CD #SDN

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/14/2017 - 19:15
As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.

IoT ID Management and #WebRTC | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #RTC #UCaaS

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 01/13/2017 - 15:00
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, looked at how this identity problem can be solved and discussed ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.

The Obstacles to #Analytics Success | @CloudExpo @Zoho #BigData #AI #ML

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 01/13/2017 - 12:00
For those of us in IT management, analytics is a familiar topic with a familiar value proposition. But for many organizations, success with IT analytics is less familiar. Why do so many fail in their adoption attempts? And how can you avoid failure and embrace success? As we'll see below, the problems usually boil down to products, people and processes.

Five Network Metrics | @CloudExpo @AppNeta #APM #SaaS #AI #DataCenter

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 01/13/2017 - 06:00
As the network has moved from a physical entity to a more abstract one, IT has valiantly kept pace by researching and deploying new network devices and functionality. IT teams have had to shift workloads and mindsets to the cloud and to SaaS providers, while remaining responsible for end-user experience-which is ever more important.

The In-House IT and MSP Dynamic | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DataCenter

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 01/12/2017 - 20:30
In-house IT professionals and managed service providers (MSPs) have had an interesting relationship over the course of IT history. Yes, they are vastly different, but if we drew a Venn diagram of IT and the MSP, the intersection of the two is worth exploring, particularly regarding how IT professionals can best manage their MSPs and work harmoniously to advance the common goal of IT performance. For IT professionals, the very utterance of the acronym “MSP” may conjure feelings of skepticism and fearing the reaper, which doesn’t need to be the case. MSPs don’t always equal outsourcing IT in its entirety. Let’s explore common scenarios where in-house IT professionals and MSPs work together, because in these cases, in-house IT professionals need to understand how to get the most out of these relationships and up-level their careers by properly managing MSPs. It’s a lot more involved than simply passing help desk tickets back and forth.

[slides] #IoT Time Series Data | @ThingsExpo @Trendalyze #M2M #ML #AI

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 01/12/2017 - 08:00
IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave Watson, CTO and Co-Founder of Trendalyze, discussed real world IoT projects from UK environmental monitoring using Mosquitto, Node-RED, Kafka, Spark, MLlib and R.

Synthetic #Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit @Catchpoint #DevOps #SDN #AI #CD

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 01/11/2017 - 12:30
Synthetic monitoring is hardly a new technology. It’s been around almost as long as the commercial World Wide Web has. But the importance of monitoring the performance and availability of a web application by simulating users’ interactions with that application, from around the globe, has never been more important. We’ve seen prominent vendors in the broad APM space add this technology with new development or partnerships just in the last 18 months.
