A New Architecture for #IoT | @ExpoDX @RedHatNews #AI #IIoT #SmartCities

A New Architecture for the Internet of Things: Rethinking Your IT Framework Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality.

Enterprise #AI and #MachineLearning | @ExpoDX #IoT #ArtificialIntelligence

Artificial intelligence and machine learning systems are made up of code and algorithms, and as such, they work as fast as computers can process them.  Often this means massive amounts of learning can be accomplished every second without stop 24x7x365.  Code doesn't need to take weekends off, holidays, or sick time. Code doesn't get tired. It can recognize complex patterns, areas of potential improvement and problems in real-time (aka digital-time).  Given these available computing capabilities and speeds, what are executives to do with AI and machine learning, when we live and operate in relatively slow human-time, and work within organizations that work at an even slower pace of organizational-time. I believe the first step is to admit we have a problem - the problem is a difference in the speed that computers can operate, and the speeds in which us humans can pr... (more)

Whose Data Is It Anyway? | @ExpoDX @EFeatherston #GDPR #Cloud #AI #DataCenter #DigitalTransformation

Data Privacy in the Cloud – Whose Data Is It Anyway? Last year was another banner year for security breaches, sad but true. At times it felt like a week did not go by without the announcement of another large corporate security breach (that usually happened sometime in the past) and the personal information of millions of people was potentially at risk. One breach in particular stands out to me. The Equifax breach that occurred last September. Approximately 145 million individuals' personal information had potentially been acquired by the hackers. The reason this one stands out is not due to the size, or that is was a company that sells services to protect your personal information (though that is ironic). What makes it stands out was the testimony of the interim CEO, Paulino do Rego Barros. Barros testified that ‘consumers do not have a say in opting in or out of ... (more)

How Much Does a Mobile App Cost? | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Mobility

How much does it cost to make an app is almost as popular a question as it is confusing. No one tries to learn the exact costs of, say, making a movie: people realize that there's an overwhelming amount of variables involved on which they depend. But almost every day a new inquiry is posted on a tech forum, Quora, or Reddit, as to how much it'd take to build a mobile business app. Such calculation, in many ways, is even harder to make. Is there a way to tackle the question properly? First we want you to understand that any exact figures couldn't possibly be given straight away, without the details, and that all the so-called online app development cost calculators are, essentially, just marketing baits. That said, there is still some info you can analyze to get a frame of reference; to get a rough idea about a budget you can squeeze an app in. Here's what you should ... (more)

Developing Mobile Apps for iOS and Android | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Mobility

Developing mobile apps has never been an easy task. Creating a mobile app for iOS means owning strong programming skills about Objective-C or Swift and knowing their APIs. Android-based apps are not so different: you have to know Java and the Android Platform and its API. The learning curve is not fast and it includes how to create nice and interactive user interfaces, connecting embedded features like GPS, camera, showing maps, images and so forth. To make it more complex, it is pretty common to connect the app with a server where central data is saved or fetched and where other services must be connected, like a central database, documents repository or other information systems. Consequently, creating a mobile app requires a team of experts able to work with a variety of different technologies, including mobile app development, networking, server-side technolo... (more)

@CloudExpo Stories
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
"We're focused on how to get some of the attributes that you would expect from an Amazon, Azure, Google, and doing that on-prem. We believe today that you can actually get those types of things done with certain architectures available in the market today," explained Steve Conner, VP of Sales at Cloudistics, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual ...
