[session] Measure Twice, Correlate Once | @CloudExpo @Catchpoint #WebPerf

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 02/16/2017 - 18:00
Tricky charts and visually deceptive graphs often make a case for the impact IT performance has on business. The debate isn't around the obvious; of course, IT performance metrics like website load time influence business metrics such as conversions and revenue. Rather, this presentation will explore various data analysis concepts to understand how, and how not to, assert such correlations. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, will review data analysis basics, and then move into some data-to-actionable information concepts. Afterward, YOU decide whether to use your newfound knowledge for good or evil.

Causation and Correlation in #Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #APM

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 02/16/2017 - 17:15
Causation and Correlation: What’s the difference? Why does it matter? Does it matter? Some vendors use time-based correlation to connect events across multiple observed data sets, and claim there’s a connection between two observed data sets. This type of approach is flawed and can lead to wildly inaccurate conclusions, which itself leads to wasted time by technical teams and high cost to the business. In the chart below we observe the Number of Requests and the Memory Utilization. Wow, the increase in the Number of Requests is causing memory utilized to go up. Quick, call Engineering and get them on this right away.

[session] #DevOps Economics and #SaaS | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #Serverless

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 02/15/2017 - 02:15
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cloud marketplaces and DevOps are changing the economics of hosting and delivering software.

Systems of Innovation for Ongoing Digital Transformation | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Agile

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/14/2017 - 15:00
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo. It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before. So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition? Back in 2015, the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted a market study that included the findings from over 1,800 CIO interviews from around the globe. The resulting insights are worthy of revisiting today, as we consider the digital business transformation outlook in 2017.

Signaling Layer for #WebRTC and #IoT | @ThingsExpo #M2M #AI #RTC #UCaaS

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/14/2017 - 11:00
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

AI-Defined Infrastructure: AiDI | @CloudExpo @ReneBuest #AI #ML #SDI #AiDI

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 02/12/2017 - 21:45
Software-defined infrastructure (SDI) is one of the most popular and ongoing trends within datacenters and cloud environments leading to better infrastructure flexibility by developing the infrastructure based on scripts respectively source code. However, SDIs are more and more becoming just a means to an end since automation, sophisticated algorithms and thus intelligent systems are leading to an Artificial Intelligence defined Infrastructure (AI-defined Infrastructure – AiDI).

Business Model Transformation | @CloudExpo #BigData #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 02/12/2017 - 14:15
I recently read an MIT Sloan Management Review article by Clayton Christensen’s recent book titled “The Hard Truth About Business Model Innovations.” While the article is full of great observations about business model transformation, the most important motivation for business model transformation is found at the end: “..our understanding of the business model journey allows us to see that, over the long term, the greatest innovation risk a company can take is to decide not to create new businesses that decouple the company’s future from that of its current business units.”

Blockchain: Everything You Need to Know | @CloudExpo #Cloud #FinTech #Blockchain

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 02/11/2017 - 21:00
The first thing you need to know about blockchain is that it enables the creation of virtual currencies and intelligent contracts. At its core is the concept of a “distributed ledger,” where data on transactions is recorded across a range of specified databases. Every transaction can be tracked and replicated in real time. That’s how the identities of user accounts, even if they are anonymous, can be verified and secured behind advanced cryptography and digital signatures.
