New Approaches for New Big Data Insights | @BigDataExpo #BigData

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 17:00
Business Intelligence has matured as a core competency necessary to sustain competitive advantage. Organizations of every size and industry are generating valuable data with each interaction, and that data can be captured, analyzed, and turned into business insight. These organizations are using analytics features like dashboards, advanced visualization, data warehousing, and other technologies to achieve their strategic business objectives. Many companies are taking a hybrid cloud approach to data analysis. Leveraging a hybrid cloud environment as part of a big data analytics strategy enables businesses to take advantage of cloud elasticity. This allows organizations to process data across clusters of computers, enabling analysis to occur across multiple cloud compute environments. As organizations' need for more compute power grows, the cloud can scale with their requirements. Cloud-based business analytics capabilities enable organizations to make smarter decisions that better address real-time business imperatives.

Intelligent Infrastructure Defined By @JamesCarlini | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 16:00
Today, more organizations are looking at new technologies and applications for their operations. There is a convergence of industries that were thought to be independent which are now interdependent. What is missing is the ability to find common ground in definitions of infrastructure and other terminologies. From the US Army Corps of Engineers’ “Infrastructure and the Operational Art” Handbook: The word infrastructure has many definitions, each tailored to the particular perspective of the author. Each is correct for the needs of the author, but in a broader, conceptual sense, multiple definitions taken together are necessary for a complete understanding. The U.S. Army states that infra-structure “is composed of the basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of a community or society” (U.S. Army 2012a)

The IoT Ready Platform By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo #IoT #API

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 16:00
Over the last couple months, in between some video coverage for events, I’ve been writing a series of IoT stories. From the basic What are These "Things”? and IoT Influence on Society to the descriptive IoT Effect on Applications and the IoT Ready Infrastructure. I thought it only fair to share how F5 can play within an IoT infrastructure. Because F5 application services share a common control plane—the F5 platform—we’ve simplified the process of deploying and optimizing IoT application delivery services. With the elastic power of Software Defined Application Services (SDAS), you can rapidly provision IoT application services across the data center and into cloud computing environments, reducing the time and costs associated with deploying new applications and architectures.

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 06/20/2015 - 15:15
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

Microservices and HTTP/2 By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 19:15
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
