Enabling Trust for Healthcare IT Security | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Security

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 09/20/2016 - 01:15
Enabling patient-doctor trust goes a long way in a provider’s ability to provide care. Trust is also critical for enabling network connections that are safe, to help secure health networks. The healthcare industry is scrambling to shore up defenses as cyberattacks and breaches increase. The rapid adoption of electronic health records/electronic medical records (EHR/EMR) has created an attractive opportunity for cyber criminals. Ponemon Research recently reported that breach costs are $363 for each stolen healthcare record, and that is the highest across all vertical markets.

Reducing IT Operation Costs | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Azure

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 09/19/2016 - 21:00
The newer Windows 10 devices with the Hello extensions are definitely going to have a cost implication, but in today’s context in our own consumer world where every individual has access to Smartphones with advanced biometric features, why should the enterprise user continue to use the old PCs that are managed by traditional passwords? I think the cost of transformation to these devices will be worth the efficiencies in the ITIL operations as well as improved security to enterprise data. It would be useful to collect data about OEMs who have Windows 10 PCs with Biometric Hello features and the same list can be utilized by enterprises. I will write a separate article on Windows 10 devices for enterprises.

Site Reliability Engineering: DevOps 2.0 | @DevOpsSummit #Cloud #DevOps #DataCenter #Monitoring

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 09/19/2016 - 12:45
Has there ever been a better time to be in DevOps? TV shows like “Person of Interest” and “Mr. Robot” are getting better at showing what developers actually do, using chunks of working code. Movies like Michael Mann’s “Blackhat” (2015) won praise from Google’s security team for its DevOps accuracy in a few scenes. Look around and you’ll discover elements of DevOps culture filtering out into wider society, such as people in all walks of life discussing their uptime or fast approaching code lock.

[session] DevOps: What Is the Lean Cloud? By @SolidFire | @DevOpsSummit #Cloud #Agile #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 09/18/2016 - 21:45
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of SolidFire, will discuss how to leverage this concept to seize on the creativity and business agility to make it real.

Learn the ABCs of Service Virtualization | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Storage #Virtualization

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 09/17/2016 - 15:15
To achieve "quality @ speed", it's essential to have unrestrained access to a trustworthy and realistic test environment. It is important to recognize that a complete test environment includes the application under test (AUT) and all of its dependent components (e.g., APIs, 3rd-party services, databases, applications, and other endpoints). Service virtualization is an emerging technology that provides DevTest teams access to a complete test environment by simulating the dependent components that are beyond your control, still evolving, or too complex to configure in a test lab.

Building Digital Capabilities | @CloudExpo #Cloud #BigData #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 09/17/2016 - 03:00
Most enterprises are struggling to innovate and are not investing enough into new technologies to counter disruptive measures. As a result, in a few years, their products are becoming irrelevant in the market. Examples of Blackberry, Nokia, Kodak, Blockbuster have been quoted numerous times. Technology has lowered the entry barrier to innovation, and new entrants can easily disrupt the entire business models in a matter of months. Geographical borders do not guarantee any competitive advantages anymore. Any breakthrough or new idea travels around the world in a matter of minutes.

Do Your Big Data Analytics Measure or Predict? | @BigDataExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData #Analytics

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 09/16/2016 - 21:45
Organizations have key business processes that they are constantly trying to re-engineer. These key business processes – loan approvals, college applications, mortgage underwriting, product and component testing, credit applications, medical reviews, employee hiring, environmental testing, requests for proposals, contract bidding, etc. – go through multiple steps, usually involving multiple people with different skill sets, with a business outcome at the end (accept/reject, bid/no bid, pass/fail, retest, reapply, etc.). And while these processes typically include “analytics” that report on how well the processes worked (process effectiveness), the analytics only provide an “after the fact” view on what happened.
