Gamification and IoT | @ThingsExpo #IoT #Gamification #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/16/2016 - 23:15
Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid Data, discussed how wearables, analytics, and geospatial technologies can be combined to transform the world into the ultimate game board. Organizations can grasp consumer, employee, or client intrinsic interest by setting up cool, collaborative, and rewarding systems using the IoT.

Cloud: Disrupting Application Architecture | @CloudExpo #SaaS #PaaS #ITaaS #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/16/2016 - 20:30
A revolutionary change in the industry was the foundation of cloud on the automation of virtualization technologies. Initially it was meant for infrastructure, but with the advent of new and innovative cloud services it has crossed the boundary of Infrastructure and invaded the application space. The concept of ‘as a Service' model has three pillars: IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service). Over a period of time cloud services have grown and diversified to the extent that clubbing the services into these three pillars is not only difficult but unattainable. That's the reason none of the public cloud providers classify their services in ‘as a Service' model category.

Similarities Between School Lunch & Software Development | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Software

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/16/2016 - 17:00
The need to add more features on shorter release cycles is ubiquitous. At some point we will reach the threshold of gaining efficiencies and quality will begin to degrade. There is some evidence that we’ve reached and crossed that threshold already. In the late 1960's the National School Lunch Program was struggling to keep up with the growing number of children needing assistance. To combat the issue The Child Nutrition Act was passed in 1966, but eventually privatization of school lunches was seen as the only affordable option for continuing the service. By the late 1970's, private companies were supplying schools with fast food to serve in their cafeterias. Source.

DevOps: How to Make It Work Best for Your Business | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Agile #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/16/2016 - 14:30
With business agility emerging as a key requisite to staying ahead of the competition, enterprises have adopted agile methodologies to deliver high-quality digital experiences that delight customers, rapidly and at lower cost. However, these initiatives sometimes fail to deliver the desired benefits, mainly because of the existing organizational silos, processes and technologies and missing collaboration among IT, development and testing teams. This necessitates the needs of DevOps to help businesses build better-quality products and services quickly and with greater reliability. Let us figure out for a minute on what is DevOps and how businesses are creating value out of it?Ops is associated with a collaborative set of practices that aims to break the silos between developers, testers, release managers, and system operators. The products and tools developed in this area focus on maximizing predictability, visibility, and flexibility, while maintaining stability and integrity.
