Nutanix “Platinum Sponsor” of @CloudExpo NY & Silicon Valley | #AI #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 22:15
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Finding Transformational Success by Ignoring Labels | @CloudExpo #Agile #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 19:45
She's smart. He's funny. They're the ambitious ones. That company is an innovator. This technology is a game-changer. As humans, we love labels. Consciously and unconsciously, we slap them on everything - and with good reason. The average human brain must process over 34GB of information each day. There is no way to do that and maintain our sanity unless we organize all that information in some way. And sticking labels on things is how our brain copes.

[slides] Multi-Cloud #DevOps | @CloudExpo @Valb00 @NetApp @SolidFire #AI

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 16:30
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of SolidFire, discussed how to leverage this concept to seize on the creativity and business agility to make it real.

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 15:15
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

What You Need to Know About #Blockchain | @CloudExpo #Bitcoin #FinTech

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 13:00
The first thing you need to know about blockchain is that it enables the creation of virtual currencies and intelligent contracts. At its core is the concept of a “distributed ledger,” where data on transactions is recorded across a range of specified databases. Every transaction can be tracked and replicated in real time. That’s how the identities of user accounts, even if they are anonymous, can be verified and secured behind advanced cryptography and digital signatures.

Side of #Serverless BS with Your Hardware FUD | @CloudExpo #SDN #AI #SDDC

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 07:15
A few years ago a popular industry buzzword term theme included server less and hardware less. It turns out, serverless BS (SLBS) and hardware less are still trendy, and while some might view the cloud or software-defined data center (SDDC) virtualization, or IoT folks as the culprits, it is more widespread with plenty of bandwagon riders. SLBS can span from IoT to mobile, VDI and workspace clients (zero or similar), workstations, server, storage, networks. To me what’s ironic is that many purveyors of of SLBS also like to talk about hardware.

[video] @DHinchcliffe's #IoT Keynote | @ThingsExpo #BI #AI #CIO #FinTech

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 00:30
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.

[session] #FinTech Analytics | @CloudExpo @KineticaDB #Bitcoin #Blockchain

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 23:15
The financial services market is one of the most data-driven industries in the world, yet it’s bogged down by legacy CPU technologies that simply can’t keep up with the task of querying and visualizing billions of records. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jared Parker, Director of Financial Services at Kinetica, will discuss how the advent of advanced in-database analytics on the GPU makes it possible to run sophisticated data science workloads on the same database that is housing the rich information needed to drive trading decisions. With the unique multi-core architecture of the GPU, financial computations can be processed efficiently and quickly, making it ideal for financial services streaming datasets. He will share how several financial institutions’ quantitative science groups are specifically using GPUs to accelerate analytics, deep learning/machine learning, and converging AI and BI.
