Fast Data, Fast Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit #Analytics #APM #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/18/2017 - 19:00
Big data is old news. Today, the key to leveraging data effectively is to do fast data.

Organizations must also now do “fast monitoring,” which means not only collecting monitoring data; but making it actionable in real-time. This post examines what fast monitoring means, and explains how incident management teams can implement this approach to realize great benefits.

[session] #IIoT Network and #EdgeComputing | @ThingsExpo @Midokura #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 02/18/2017 - 16:30
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

[session] Cloud Sprawl: The Rising Epidemic By @Citrix | @CloudExpo #Cloud #WebPerf

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 02/18/2017 - 15:45
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.

[session] #DevOps Economics and #SaaS | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #Serverless

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/18/2017 - 12:00
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cloud marketplaces and DevOps are changing the economics of hosting and delivering software.
