Migrating to Cloud-Based Managed Services? By @OrlandoBayter | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Wed, 07/29/2015 - 14:00
In 2013, Scandinavian research group SINTEF announced that 90 percent of all data ever created was generated during the two previous years. That time frame continues shrink as the rate of data creation increases exponentially. Mobile devices, computers, gaming systems and even your car all produce terabytes and terabytes of data. Under these conditions, every business needs to think seriously about their cloud options. There’s simply too much data for a company to effectively manage on outdated systems alone. We are quickly moving into the Post-PC era. While computers will remain the primary interface for employees, the data, computations, storage, and processing will occur externally in the cloud. Enterprise software from five years ago can’t handle the surge of data and solutions are quickly moving to the cloud to store, manage, compute and backup vital information at lightning-fast speeds while avoiding the heavy costs and headaches of owning and managing complex commodity hardware.

[slides] The Speed of DevOps By @MHExcalibur | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 07/29/2015 - 04:00
The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow. In his session at DevOps Summit, Marc Hornbeek, Sr. Solutions Architect of DevOps continuous test solutions at Spirent Communications, explained the best practices of continuous testing at high scale, which is relevant to small scale DevOps, and if there is an expectation of growth as the number of build targets, test topologies and delivery topologies that need to be orchestrated rapidly grow.

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

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/28/2015 - 21:00
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.
