Digital - Design Thinking = Status Quo | @ThingsExpo #IoT #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 05/06/2016 - 07:45
Today organizations are spending millions on digital transformation initiatives - integrating advanced analytics, AI and platforms. While this is the best portfolio for them to invest on, they need to periodically step back and evaluate the end objectives. As I look back at my own experiences as a customer to my multiple 'digitally enabled' service providers I realize that there is a lot of ground to be covered in terms of meeting customer expectations even with their present digital arsenal.

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 05/06/2016 - 07:00

Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize business performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan J. Lester, Director of IoT Strategy at LogMeIn, will cite from our customer examples in home automation – lighting, pet care, plumbing – as well as industrial printing.

Docker Containers and #Microservices | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 05/06/2016 - 05:30
From the conception of Docker containers to the unfolding microservices revolution we see today, here is a brief history of what I like to call 'containerology'. In 2013, we were solidly in the monolithic application era. I had noticed that a growing amount of effort was going into deploying and configuring applications. As applications had grown in complexity and interdependency over the years, the effort to install and configure them was becoming significant. But the road did not end with a single deployment, no, the installation and configuration work was repeated over and over again, not only for each software release but for each and every environment that we promote applications to until finally being deposited into production, where this we repeat this exercise one last time.
