We talk on this channel a lot about digital transformation, but how far does its scope extend? Just in case you had grown tired and world weary of the whole ‘digital transformation’ terms in the first place (Ed - surely not?), let us reinvigorate it by defining what we mean. The move to digital transformation today involves and in fact necessitates a broad level re-engineering of many of a firm’s main operation blocks such that they become digitally enabled and aligned for technologies.

‘Agile #BigData’ Presentation Slides By @CoryIsaacson | @BigDataExpo

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 22:00
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver data in a meaningful way, one that really delivers on what end-users need to maintain a competitive position in fast-changing markets. What is needed is an agile approach to Big Data, one that affords architects and developers the freedom to rapidly support a wide variety of changing business requirements and needs - without a full "reset" of the Big Data infrastructure and toolset.

It’s 11 PM – Do You Know Where Your Data Is? By @EFeatherston [#Cloud]

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 21:00
I was recently on a business trip out to Wausau, WI. The purpose was to conduct a training session on web application development for a new batch of associates at our onshore development center. When I picked up my rental car at the airport, I was very happy to discover it had built in Bluetooth integration for my phone. I have this feature on both cars at home. I love the convenience of having the car become an accessory for my mobile device. I immediately bound my phone with the car’s Bluetooth. Then something unusual happened. My phone prompted me with a question: ‘Chevy/Malibu would like access to your contacts list, click OK to grant request.’ My first reaction was no, and canceled the request. Each time I started the car, it would persistently ask the question. My curiosity got the better of me, and I finally relinquished and said OK to see what happened next.
