New Approaches for New Big Data Insights | @BigDataExpo #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 17:00
Business Intelligence has matured as a core competency necessary to sustain competitive advantage. Organizations of every size and industry are generating valuable data with each interaction, and that data can be captured, analyzed, and turned into business insight. These organizations are using analytics features like dashboards, advanced visualization, data warehousing, and other technologies to achieve their strategic business objectives. Many companies are taking a hybrid cloud approach to data analysis. Leveraging a hybrid cloud environment as part of a big data analytics strategy enables businesses to take advantage of cloud elasticity. This allows organizations to process data across clusters of computers, enabling analysis to occur across multiple cloud compute environments. As organizations' need for more compute power grows, the cloud can scale with their requirements. Cloud-based business analytics capabilities enable organizations to make smarter decisions that better address real-time business imperatives.

Intelligent Infrastructure Defined By @JamesCarlini | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 16:00
Today, more organizations are looking at new technologies and applications for their operations. There is a convergence of industries that were thought to be independent which are now interdependent. What is missing is the ability to find common ground in definitions of infrastructure and other terminologies. From the US Army Corps of Engineers’ “Infrastructure and the Operational Art” Handbook: The word infrastructure has many definitions, each tailored to the particular perspective of the author. Each is correct for the needs of the author, but in a broader, conceptual sense, multiple definitions taken together are necessary for a complete understanding. The U.S. Army states that infra-structure “is composed of the basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of a community or society” (U.S. Army 2012a)

The IoT Ready Platform By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo #IoT #API

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 16:00
Over the last couple months, in between some video coverage for events, I’ve been writing a series of IoT stories. From the basic What are These "Things”? and IoT Influence on Society to the descriptive IoT Effect on Applications and the IoT Ready Infrastructure. I thought it only fair to share how F5 can play within an IoT infrastructure. Because F5 application services share a common control plane—the F5 platform—we’ve simplified the process of deploying and optimizing IoT application delivery services. With the elastic power of Software Defined Application Services (SDAS), you can rapidly provision IoT application services across the data center and into cloud computing environments, reducing the time and costs associated with deploying new applications and architectures.

The Secure Path to Value in the Cloud By @Windstream | @CloudExpo #IoT #API #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 15:15
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

Microservices and HTTP/2 By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 19:15
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Microservices & IoT Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit | #IoT #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 19:00
Buzzword alert: Microservices and IoT at a DevOps conference? What could possibly go wrong? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, the leading expert on architecting agility for the enterprise and president of Intellyx, panelists peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise.

Connecting DevOps to the Business at @DevOpsSummit By @DaliborSiroky | #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 16:15
This week we're attending SYS-CON Event's DevOps Summit in New York City. It's a great conference and energy behind DevOps is enormous. Thousands of attendees from every company you can imagine are focused on automation, the challenges of DevOps, and how to bring greater agility to software delivery. But, even with the energy behind DevOps there's something missing from the movement. For all the talk of deployment automation, continuous integration, and cloud infrastructure I'm still not seeing an adequate roadmap for how DevOps aligns with the larger organization. DevOps is about delivering software faster, but there's more to the story than new tools and techniques for developers and operations.

Allaying Your Fears with Cloud Hosting | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 14:00
As more and more businesses choose to depend on the cloud, it is not unreasonable to be cynical and doubt the evolution. Are businesses risking it all by moving their data to the cloud? Or is this a totally thought-out move? The days of hosting websites and applications on your own in-house server are numbered. The recent RightScale State of the Cloud report found that close to 88% of businesses today make use of the public cloud while 63% are on a private cloud. As more and more businesses choose to depend on the cloud, it is not unreasonable to be cynical and doubt the evolution. Are businesses risking it all by moving their data to the cloud? Or is this a totally thought-out move? If you are a business that is yet to make the move and have your questions unanswered still, this article will attempt to allay those fears.

Docker Monitoring Support By @seti321 | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 06/17/2015 - 15:30
Containers and Docker are all the rage these days. In fact, containers — with Docker as the leading container implementation — have changed how we deploy systems, especially those comprised of microservices. Despite all the buzz, however, Docker and other containers are still relatively new and not yet mainstream. That being said, even early Docker adopters need a good monitoring tool, so last month we added Docker monitoring to SPM. We built it on top of spm-agent – the extensible framework for Node.js-based agents and ended up with spm-agent-docker.

BaaS – The New Possibility in Mobile Cloud Technology | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 06/17/2015 - 14:00
Today, a mobile phone is endowed with more capabilities than it was five years ago. One of the contributing factors to the power of mobile apps is Backend as a Service (BaaS). BaaS is gaining huge momentum lately; its highly flexible and scalable nature has the capability to bring out the best from a mobile application. The use of mobile applications is also witnessing an increasing curve in the IT Market because of the features on offer, further simplifying our day-to-day needs. Focusing on statistics, BaaS is estimated to grow from $216 million to around $7.7 billion in 2017; this rise is mainly supported by the Entertainment Applications sector as it derives maximum revenue for any mobile application development company.
