Benefits of Knowledge Management By @TaylorsJim | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Knowledge management, in business terms, refers to saving, developing, sharing, and effectively using knowledge for the benefit of organization. It refers to a multi-disciplined approach of achieving organizational objectives by making the best use of knowledge. Scientia potentia est (Latin proverb meaning "knowledge is power") attributed to 16th century philosopher Sir Francis Bacon is nowadays more valid than ever. Knowledge is power and knowledge management is the key to success. Knowledge management, in business terms, refers to saving, developing, sharing, and effectively using knowledge for the benefit of organization. It refers to a multi-disciplined approach of achieving organizational objectives by making the best use of knowledge.

It Is Past Time to Deconstruct 'DevOps' By @DMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit

Java Developer's Journal - 9 hours 11 min ago
It is interesting to me, how quickly the hype cycle of a good thing can turn it into a monster that will inevitably eat itself, leaving a much smaller – and much more useful – concept or toolset behind. It has happened over and over in high tech, one need only say “XML” to understand what I mean. It is definitely a useful tool for some jobs, but the “XML Everywhere” craze was insane. People declaring such patently false ideas as “It will end the need for programmers.”

Java Developer's Journal - 10 hours 11 min ago
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015. As we connect the physical world with information technology, data from actions, processes and the environment can increase sales, improve efficiencies, automate daily activities and minimize risk. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture investments are funding an explosion of new products and companies. New technologies – hardware, software, bandwidth, sensor – make new solutions feasible for the first time. He will explore the impact on all sectors of the economy – consumer wearables, smart home, automotive, transportation, retail, health care, public sector, energy, agriculture and manufacturing – while identifying key players, potential winners and losers.

The Dragon Signals Certainty of a Global Cloud War By @IanKhanLive | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - 10 hours 41 min ago
Alibaba, the world’s largest ecommerce provider, has pumped over a $1 billion into its subsidiary, Aliya, a cloud services provider. This is perhaps one of the biggest moments in the global Cloud Wars that signals the entry of China into the main arena. Here is why this matters. The cloud industry worldwide is being propelled into fast growth by tremendous demand for cloud computing services. Cloud, which is highly scalable and offers low investment and high computational capabilities to end users by eliminating the need to buy costly infrastructure and instead rent it from cloud providers, is now projected to be a $200 billion industry worldwide by 2020. This estimate may even get inflated as we get closer to 2020, given the fast growth rate of cloud.

The Deeper Dive CIO in a Turbulent Technology Ocean By @ABridgwater | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - 11 hours 26 min ago
It’s not hard to feel sorry for Chief Information Officers (CIOs) – the levels at which they need to operate change all the time… and depth and granularity of the dataflows that present themselves change all the time. Just when we thought we had the whole client-server model worked out, along came the Internet and cloud and the data center.

[slides] The IoT: Possibilities, Challenges, and Real World Questions | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - 11 hours 41 min ago
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, examineed the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps still in play, as the industry strives to create a cohesive, secure, scalable, and beneficial network of ‘things.’

[session] Enabling Cloud Chargebacks By @IanKhanLive | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 08/01/2015 - 20:45
Traditionally IT has been seen as a cost center with nothing but a cost associated with enabling, supporting and maintaining anything IT. IT on the other hand is an integral part of today’s enterprise that often does not have a replacement. IT can however be turned into a powerful profit center. IT can be empowered by giving it tools and mechanisms to enable chargebacks to work as an independent entity within an enterprise and offer services to its stakeholders. Powered by Solgenia’s revolutionary Cloud Monetization platform Powua, Enterprise IT can now create chargebacks to the granularity of bandwidth, storage space, processor computing power and even electricity usage if needed.

IoT Is Busy Innovating, But Where’s the Integration? By @PaulSBruce | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 08/01/2015 - 17:15
The concept behind the Internet of Things has been around for a while now, ATMs being some of the first enterprise, hardened, network-connected, managed devices for mainstream consumer use. So too with our mobile phones, these are not new concepts to network technicians or hardware geeks. But for the rest of us, we simply never imagined the extents that the "ubiquity of connectedness" would take all other industries, from biotech to automotive, personal care to agriculture, entertainment to custom manufacturing. The list is as long as our imaginations.

[slides] Track IT Usage By @dcomputaguy | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 08/01/2015 - 15:30
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usage of their services for licensing and billing purposes? In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Delano Seymour, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at 6fusion, discussed how to meter and track your services using a consumption-based methodology that keeps pace with this cutting-edge technology.
