The History and Future of the Java Programming Language | @DevOpsSummit #Java #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 01/08/2017 - 19:00
As the internet’s renowned programming language, Java has had a profound impact on how people navigate the digital world. Much of what users expect in terms of performance from their devices that access the internet has been set by Java functionality. You don’t have to be a developer, however, to recognize its influence. The story of Java goes back more than two decades and has evolved along with the digital transformation of the world. As consumer and business demands on scalability increases, Java is forced to grow and adapt in order to stay relevant. Stakeholders are approaching their work armed with a primer on Java’s history, current use, and future direction.

Digital Transformation in the Retail Banking Industry | @CloudExpo #Cloud #FinTech #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 01/08/2017 - 18:00
Like other industries did before it, retail banking is riding a bucking bronco of digital transformation. While customer satisfaction levels drop and government rules and regulations continue to expand, retail banking seeks new ways to adapt to the massive changes in how consumers interact and use financial products and services. However, unlike other industries such as book publishing that have been rocked by the tsunami of digital changes in the marketplace, companies in the banking sector also have to comply with extensive regulations intended to protect consumers. In confronting this new landscape, banks are looking at better ways to use their existing data in real-time to improve customer experience and loyalty, comply with a growing number of government rules and privacy laws, and consolidate disparate IT systems in their current infrastructure. Banks must provide a seamless experience for customers no matter which product or service they choose.

Blockchain Identity | @CloudExpo #FinTech #Blockchain #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 01/08/2017 - 15:00
As good Venn diagrams always show it's the intersection areas that offer the sweet spot for trends and markets, and an especially potent one is the intersection of Cloud computing, with the blockchain and also digital identity, particularly when considered within contexts such as Digital Democracy. Given the diversity of each field alone there are multiple perspectives to this, more the start of a conversation rather than a definitive design.

[slides] #DevOps and #Microservices Security | @CloudExpo @Aporeto #CD

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 01/08/2017 - 03:15
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software security issues.

Optimizing the Ops in DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #Cloud #DevOps #Containers

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/07/2017 - 22:00
We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code and pulling pager duty. We also talk about culture a great deal in the context of developers and DevOps. About touchy-feely topics like empathy, trust, learning, cooperation, and responsibility. It can all be a bit kumbaya.

[video] Innovate a Platform | @CloudExpo @ReadyTalk #IoT #RTC #WebRTC

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/07/2017 - 19:00
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and more than a decade of web conferencing product development to start a project that reflects shifts in customer needs, cloud, dev tools, web standards, enterprise mobility and video. He covered the upsides, downsides and learnings in terms of investment, resource allocation, talent retention and technical considerations.

Why Healthcare IT Teams Love Intelligent Deception | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Cybersecurity

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/07/2017 - 15:30
The healthcare industry is not immune from today’s relentless wave of cyberattacks. Cyber theft of protected health information (PHI) is on the rise, and health organizations understand that 100 percent prevention of attacks is not realistic. According to Ponemon Institute’s Sixth Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security of Healthcare Data report, nearly 90 percent of all healthcare organizations have suffered at least one data breach in the last two years. According to another report, 88 percent of ransomware attacks in Q2 2016 were on healthcare entities.

[slides] Embedded Intelligence | @ThingsExpo @TegoInc #IoT #AI #IIoT #M2M

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/07/2017 - 13:00
In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart products will accumulate information and data wherever they go and will be able to recount this information on command when needed.

IoT Way of Thinking | @ThingsExpo @EricssonIT @EsmeSwartz #IoT #M2M

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 01/07/2017 - 10:15
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver unique customer value for new go-to-market models based on a cloud and IoT way of working. Analytics, IoT service mashups, fail fast business models and contextual data streams enable data to become the new currency for digital citizens and businesses and will determine business success or failure.

[slides] The Factory of the Future, Today | @ThingsExpo @Cisco #IoT #IIoT #M2M #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 01/06/2017 - 23:30
IoT offers a value of almost $4 trillion to the manufacturing industry through platforms that can improve margins, optimize operations & drive high performance work teams. By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often underestimate the complexity of IoT integration and overestimate the built-in integration capabilities of their IoT platforms.”
