Is Your Cloud Getting Smarter? | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #CognitiveComputing

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 11:15

[session] Divergent #DevOps Patterns | @DevOpsSummit #ContinuousDelivery

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 06:00
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

[session] The Right #Microservices | @CloudExpo @IBMDevOps #AI #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 01:00
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure. The real and more difficult question, in developing microservices-based applications, is this: What's the best combination of cloud services and tools to use to get the right results in the specific business situation in which you need to deliver what your end users’ want. Considering that new streams of IoT data are already raising the stakes on what end users expect in their mobile experiences, the versatility and power of cloud services is going to become the key to innovation that’s meaningful in the market.

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 05/12/2017 - 17:15
IT leaders have always had their hands full with ghost issues on-premises. But for businesses that rely on remote and branch offices, monitoring a sprawling network of on-premises equipment introduces even more challenges. That's why we move to the cloud, right? To help us eliminate truck rolls, improve cost efficiency and centralize management of applications across all locations. When you've migrated to the cloud (even if it's just for something like office applications like Office 365 or G Suite), you've already considered compliance, licensing, budget concerns. But what happens when your remote users start experiencing classic ghost issues?
