[session] @Scrumdotorg to Present at @DevOpsSummit | #Scrum #AI #DevOps

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 10:45:00 EST

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 change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change. This talk will share stories of success and failure and will talk about why different approaches succeed and fail.

[slides] The #IoT Factory | @ThingsExpo @Cisco_IoT #BigData #AI #IIoT #M2M

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 20:00:00 EST

IoT offers a value of almost $4 trillion to the manufacturing industry through platforms that can improve margins, optimize operations & drive high performance work teams. By using IoT technologies as a foundation, manufacturing customers are integrating worker safety with manufacturing systems, driving deep collaboration and utilizing analytics to exponentially increased per-unit margins. However, as Benoit Lheureux, the VP for Research at Gartner points out, “IoT project implementers often underestimate the complexity of IoT integration and overestimate the built-in integration capabilities of their IoT platforms.”

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 15:45:00 EST

Building a cross-cloud operational model can be a daunting task. Per-cloud silos are not the answer, but neither is a fully generic abstraction plane that strips out capabilities unique to a particular provider. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Wolf, VP & Chief Technology Officer, Global Field & Industry at VMware, will discuss how successful organizations approach cloud operations and management, with insights into where operations should be centralized and when it’s best to decentralize.

Java Profilers: Three Types and Why You Need All of Them | @CloudExpo #Java #Cloud

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 12:53:00 EST

Debugging performance issues in production can be a pain and in some cases impossible without the right tools. Java profilers have been around forever, but the profilers most developers think about are only one type. Standard profilers certainly provide the most data, but not necessarily the most usable information. This depends on the type of debugging task. These profilers will track all method calls and memory usage. This allows a developer to dive into the call structure at whatever angle they choose.

Happiness of #DevOps Transformation | @DevOpsSummit #APM #ML #SDN

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 05:00:00 EST

"It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." – W. Edwards Deming. How often do we see this quote used in DevOps blogs without a hint of irony? It’s as if we need to instantly complete generations of evolution to stave off extinction, like trying to grow an extra lung overnight. DevOps or Die!!! So this is it – the dreaded DevOps transformation looms large. The department will be ‘shaken up’, practices will be ‘turned on their head’, and staff will be ‘taken out of their comfort zone’. It’s sink or swim: The extinct will be carried out on stretchers, to graveyards in which Ops and Dev are siloed for eternity.

Java Deserialization: Running Faster Than a Bear | @CloudExpo #API #Java #Cloud

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 16:42:00 EDT

Software components that were once good can sour instantly when new vulnerabilities are discovered within them. When that happens, the bears are coming, and you have to respond quickly. Two men are walking through a forest. Suddenly, they see a bear off in the distance, running toward them. Adrenaline pumping, they start running away. But then one of them stops, takes some running shoes from his bag and starts putting them on. “Frank, what are you doing?” says the other man. “Do you think you will run faster than the bear with those?” “I don’t need to run faster than the bear,” Frank replies. “I just have to run faster than you.” This scenario repeats itself every time a new security vulnerability is discovered in a widely used open source component. Imagine the bear as your adversary. Rushing to attack when easy prey is present. Your response time is critical.

BMC Introduces MainView for Java Environments Enabling a Transaction Engine for Digital Business

Tue, 03 May 2016 08:04:00 EDT

BMC has announced MainView for Java Environments. This integrated systems management solution provides complete insight into how Java is consuming resources and affecting application performance on the modern mainframe. In the race to thrive as a digital business and to gain a competitive advantage, organizations are increasingly looking to Java for z/OS® to quickly develop applications. With the demand for instant service, always-available, high-performing applications, it is not surprising that 93 percent of mainframe organizations in a BMC survey said Java usage is growing or steady, and Java is the language of choice for writing new or rewriting existing mainframe applications. However, Java workloads can affect performance and availability on the mainframe, as they consume system resources without regard for the needs of other applications or services. An integrated management approach allows IT Operations a holistic view of the environment to quickly and easily discover Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) and to manage the effect of their resource consumption on application performance.

Implementing the Mediator Design Pattern in Angular 2 By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 09:00:00 EDT

In any component-based framework you’ll need to implement component communications. The main principle is that components should be loosely coupled hence reusable hence testable. The mediator design pattern allows you to arrange component communications via “the man in the middle” so a component A never communicates with the component B directly. If a component needs data, someone will provide the data via bindings to the component’s input properties. Who’s this someone?Ain’t no business of the component. If a component needs to provide some data to the external world, it’ll emit events (with the data payload). Emits to whom? Ain’t no business of the component. Let whoever needs the data listen to the events from this component.

Frustrated by JavaScript? By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Fri, 19 Feb 2016 12:30:00 EST

I decide to write this blog after reading this post of a frustrated developer (he goes by the nick pistacchio) who couldn’t create a simple single-page application (SPA) in JavaScript in several days. Typically frustration is a result of unmet expectations and this is the case here as well. If pistachio would decide to create a simple app using the JavaScript framework he already knew, he could achieve his goal in 2-3 days allocated for this job. The problem is that he decided to achieve two goals:

Angular 2: Passing Data to Routes By @YFain | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 17:00:00 EST

In the previous blog I did a high-level overview of Angular 2 router and wrote a basic routing application that demonstrated displaying different components in a predefined area of the window. We often need not only display a component, but also pass some data to it. For example, if we navigate from the Home to the Product Detail route we need to pass the product ID to the destination route. Angular offers a directive RouteParams so a route can receive data from the parent component. There is also a RouteData directive that can be used to pass additional data to a route from the @RouteConfig section. I’ll illustrate the use of both directives by modifying the app from the previous blog.

Java HashSet Becomes a Little Faster By @YFain | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:00:00 EDT

I was experimenting with Java HashSet, which is a pretty expensive collection to create, but it has a benefit of the O(1) performance on the retrieval of elements from this collection. Based on my experiments performance of HashSet is improved over the last year. I’ve written a small benchmark comparing the performance of the one year old JRE 1.8.0_05 with the latest 1.8.0_51. In my tests I’m creating a HashSet containing 100000 objects.

The Case for Cloud Foundry

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 17:00:00 EDT

Cloud computing is emerging to solve numerous enterprise IT problems at organizations of all sizes, and Cloud Foundry has emerged as a leading Platform-­as-­a-­Service (PaaS) to develop and launch applications in their private enterprise clouds. Cloud Foundry is open­-source software, and available in “plain vanilla” code from the Cloud Foundry Foundation. It is also available in proprietary versions from a few vendors. However, it's important to understand that Cloud Foundry is not owned by a single, proprietary provider, and its availability is not limited to the small number of proprietary vendors. [section label="Common themes"] Common themes A few common themes have emerged from organizations who are working with Cloud Foundry as part of their overall cloud computing strategy: Governance, risk and compliance management Information privacy and security Flexibility, speed, and the ability to scale quickly Short deployment time Balancing agility, cost and control With those goals in mind, Cloud Foundry is being used across many industries. Brief summaries are provided below, and a series of use cases across industries can be found in this section of CF Live. Do you have a compelling use case to add to the mix? If so, please let us know! [section label="Logistics and supply chains"] Logistics & supply chains Logistics and supply chains represent an intense competitive space today. One Cloud Foundry user describes it as “a race” to develop supply chains in the cloud. This pace makes it impractical to deploy and manage new and updated applications in local data centers.
