[session] Cognitive Computing: How Big Data Becomes Big Insights | @CloudExpo #CognitiveComputing

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 01/28/2016 - 16:30
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's happening right now in industries across the globe.

Handy Reference: RegEx in the Network By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Over the years I’ve shared a lot of posts on using programmability in the network to do, well, a lot of different things. Like implement A/B testing, and Canary deployments, and proxying requests for memcached. All these patterns can be and are implemented by proxies that offer a platform for taking advantage of data path programmability.

We are pleased to announce the results of the NetBeans IDE 8.1 Community Acceptance Survey that ended November 2nd: 85% of 89 respondents agree that NetBeans IDE 8.1 Release Candidate is stable enough to be shipped! A few respondents pointed out several serious issues. We evaluated them all not to overlook some important problem. We have noticed that majority of web programmers appreciate improved generic support for JavaScript development like enhanced Node.js support, debugging, inspection and especially testing and packaging so our investment into this area paid off. Another success worth mentioning is big (98%) satisfaction with redesigned Java Profiler. Check it out yourselves! Overall, this is a good news for the NetBeans IDE 8.1 from the community, and we thank all who provided this valuable feedback!

Trimodal IT Doesn’t Fix Bimodal IT | @CloudExpo #DevOps #BigData #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 01/27/2016 - 12:00
The battle over bimodal IT is heating up. Now that there’s a reasonably broad consensus that Gartner’s advice about bimodal IT is deeply flawed – consensus everywhere except perhaps at Gartner – various ideas are springing up to fill the void. The bimodal problem, of course, is well understood. ‘Traditional’ or ‘slow’ IT uses hidebound, laborious processes that would only get in the way of ‘fast’ or ‘agile’ digital efforts. The result: incoherent IT strategies and shadow IT struggles that lead to dispersed, redundant, and risky technology choices across the organization. The battle, however, isn’t over the problem. It’s over what we should do about it. Perhaps we should add a third mode?

2015 Big Data Startups By @JimKaskade | @BigDataExpo #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 01/26/2016 - 19:00
The following are a few Big Data companies that I was keeping an eye on starting back in January of 2015 (yeah, this is NOT a statistically significant sample)….some for “old times sake” because I knew the founding team and was curious how things were progressing, some because I trust their venture capital partners, and some because they inspire me with an application of the technology that is meaningful (I’m tired of hearing about yet another “Big Data Platform”).

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 01/26/2016 - 04:45
Digital transformation has increased the speed at which organizations must adapt. As they do so, it’s more important than ever to be able to choose solutions that will give them a comprehensive, real-time view of the network. Several factors contribute to this new priority: Root causes and threats must be quickly identified, so network and security ops personnel must have the ability to view and share real-time data from multiple network environments.

Enterprise PaaS – Agile Architecture for Continuous Innovation | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 01/25/2016 - 20:45
Although MIT makes the specific point that the Platform Business Model is exactly that, a business model not a technology, there is naturally a clear and powerful link with the Cloud model ‘PaaS’ – Platform as a Service. This offers literally that, a Platform as a service, and so it can play a central component part in enabling the Platform Business Model.
