[session] #Hadoop in the Cloud | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #ML #DataCenter

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing at Cloudera, will cover the ins and outs of Hadoop, and how it can help cloud-based businesses.

[session] Holistic IoTification | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - 10 hours 41 min ago
Almost two-thirds of companies either have or soon will have IoT as the backbone of their business in 2016. However, IoT is far more complex than most firms expected. How can you not get trapped in the pitfalls? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, a renowned visionary and thought leader, will introduce a holistic method of IoTification, which is the process of IoTifying the existing technology and business models to adopt and leverage IoT. He will drill down to the components in this framework: Anatomy, Ramp-up, Use case, Business case, Architecture, Technology selection, Implementation, and Platform (ARUBA TIP). The interdisciplinary techniques and anti-patterns of this method will be discussed, along with best practices and lessons learned, to help organizations transform to and enable IoT effectively.

Pokémon Go and #BigData | @BigDataExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData #Analytics

Java Developer's Journal - 16 hours 11 min ago
Yep, I play Pokémon Go. I take joy walking around the neighborhood and in strange towns catching a Pinsir, Ponyta, or Growlithe or two (though I have to put up with those pesky Ekans, Paras and Spearows). You see, I play Pokémon Go for …er, um,… research purposes. I can’t help but to imagine how organizations can leverage “augmented reality[1],” the secret sauce behind Pokémon Go, to deliver analytic insights and recommendations to key business constituents in a way that is more direct and actionable (not to mention measurable).

Clash of Ops | @DevOpsSummit #BigData #APM #DevOps #Docker #Monitoring

Java Developer's Journal - 18 hours 41 min ago
It was a Monday. I was reading the Internet. Okay, I was skimming feeds. Anyway, I happened across a title that intrigued me, “Stateful Apps and Containers: Squaring the Circle.” It had all the right buzzwords (containers) and mentioned state, a topic near and dear to this application networking-oriented gal, so I happily clicked on through. Turns out that Stateful Apps are not Stateful Apps. Seriously.

[session] #IoT Deployments Can Go Bad | @ThingsExpo #IIoT #M2M #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - 21 hours 26 min ago
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT deployments can go bad, and in some cases downright ugly, when firms focus on the wrong things and fail to be transparent with their customers concerning data ownership and usage surveillance.

BMC to Present #AWS | @CloudExpo @BMCSoftware #TrueSight #Monitoring

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 09/25/2016 - 07:45
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Moran, a Senior Architect, TrueSight R&D, at BMC Software, will share those lessons learned and how to balance cost control with the many choices of service, storage, and compute paradigms.

[session] How to Monetize Your Data | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #BI #BigData

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sun, 09/25/2016 - 02:45
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization in a “as-a-service” cloud model, and discuss the role that the data lake plays in monetizing the organization’s growing wealth of data.

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 09/25/2016 - 02:15
I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engineer and Head of Developer Relations at Neo4j, will help attendees understand the dependencies and figure out the root cause of the failures.
