[slides] Scheduling and Isolation in Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit @Intel #DevOps #Containers

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 11:45:00 EDT

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Communications Coming Full Circle | @ThingsExpo #AI #IoT #M2M #Sensors

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 09:45:00 EDT

With the wave of personal assistants, such as Siri, Cortana and Google Assistant, and new startups leveraging AI and analytics to build personal companions, it’s becoming clear we are moving toward a new voice-controlled relationship with technology. As we have already seen in the consumer market, it is all but a given that these voice-activation systems will eventually make it into the enterprise environment, as the potential benefits of these systems could be tremendous in simplifying and automating activities. Although it may be a long time before we see the full likenesses of “HAL” from “2001: A Space Odyssey”, the technology is already here that can improve the ways businesses operate.

[session] TCO and the #Cloud Adoption Lifecycle | @CloudExpo #AWS #API

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 09:15:00 EDT

IT organizations are moving to the cloud in hopes to approve efficiency, increase agility and save money. Migrating workloads might seem like a simple task, but what many businesses don’t realize is that application migration criteria differs across organizations, making it difficult for architects to arrive at an accurate TCO number. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Joe Kinsella, CTO of CloudHealth Technologies, will offer a systematic approach to understanding the TCO of a cloud application in order to ensure a successful migration. Additionally, he can detail CloudHealth’s experience partnering with AWS Migration and provide several proof points for the audience – helping to guide their migration planning process.

[slides] Machine Learning | @CloudExpo #BigData #AI #ML #DX #SmartCities

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 22:15:00 EDT

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect anomalous usage based on past usage.

Hard Decisions in #DigitalTransformation | @ThingsExpo #AI #ML #DX #IoT #SmartCities

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 09:15:00 EDT

How can an organization with decades worth of accumulated ERP customizations and configurations, IT systems and customized software applications digitally transform fast enough to keep up with the rapidly changing behaviors of digital customers? That is a hard question most organizations are wrestling with today. Often complex custom IT environments served a purpose in a past era, but today where IT speed and agility are required, they serve as anchors restraining an organization from moving forward and digitally transforming fast enough to compete.

Legacy Modernization and Cloud | @CloudExpo #API #CloudNative #Agile #DX

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 17:00:00 EDT

If you are thinking about moving applications off a mainframe and over to open systems and the cloud, consider these guidelines to prioritize what to move and what to eliminate. On the surface, mainframe architecture seems relatively simple: A centrally located computer processes data through an input/output subsystem and stores its computations in memory. At the other end of the mainframe are printers and terminals that communicate with the mainframe through protocols. For all of its apparent simplicity, mainframe architecture can be extraordinarily complex. Mainframes process thousands of transactions per second and require an extensive infrastructure to house and maintain them. The hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of terminals (think of a bank’s ATM network) require a message routing scheme that can quickly prioritize and route transaction requests.

Colocation Remains Essential to Enterprise IT Infrastructure | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DataCenter

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 21:45:00 EDT

Colocation is a central pillar of modern enterprise infrastructure planning because it provides greater control, insight, and performance than managed platforms. In spite of the inexorable rise of the cloud, most businesses with extensive IT hardware requirements choose to host their infrastructure in colocation data centers. According to a recent IDC survey, more than half of the businesses questioned use colocation services, and the number is even higher among established businesses and businesses with an existing base of IT expertise.

File System Market vs. Object Storage | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DataCenter #Storage #AI #DX

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 15:00:00 EDT

Let’s rewind the clock a bit. A few years ago, object storage was the new technology that promised to replace file system in the secondary storage market. It would scale beyond the limits of file systems and deliver better costs. The trade-off would be lower ease-of-use with new protocols that required rewriting of the applications. File systems would keep its place as the tier-one storage solution, because of its superior performance. The world order was clear with object storage elbowing file system out of secondary storage and gradually squeezing it out of tier one as its performance improved. The marketing message was that the role of the file system was rapidly diminishing, because its technology could not keep up with the data explosion.

[session] Open Analytics | @CloudExpo @ProgressSW #AI #ML #DX #BigData #Analytics

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 07:15:00 EDT

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark. Cloud APIs are commonly designed to support application integration representing a disconnect with the analytics ecosystem. These combined trends create significant demand for a “bring-your-own-analytics” (BYOA) capability for cloud applications.

SaaS Performance | @CloudExpo @Catchpoint #DevOps #WebPerf #AI #SaaS

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 18:15:00 EDT

Software as a service (SaaS), one of the earliest and most successful cloud services, has reached mainstream status. According to Cisco, by 2019 more than four-fifths (83 percent) of all data center traffic will be based in the cloud, up from 65 percent today. The majority of this traffic will be applications. Businesses of all sizes are adopting a variety of SaaS-based services – everything from collaboration tools to mission-critical commerce-oriented applications. The rise in SaaS usage has many positive benefits, but one drawback is that as demand grows, SaaS providers are having a harder time ensuring a high-performing (fast, reliable) end-user experience – at the same time performance expectations are growing higher than ever.

Test Environment Management | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousTesting

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 14:45:00 EDT

Imagine that you have hundreds of development, testing, and operations teams spread across the globe that rely on each other to execute software testing. You have 245 test environments and you release to pre-production several times a day and deploy to production once a week. How do you manage all the software tests, test data, and test environments? Traditionally, the answer would be to fill out spreadsheets or siloed tools, send emails, and hope that everything and everyone is ready at each stage of the software testing lifecycle (STLC).

[session] The #IoT Evolution | @ThingsExpo @InteractorTeam #DX #SmartCities

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 06:00:00 EDT

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

[session] Scale-up Architectures | @CloudExpo @FujitsuAmerica @FerhatSF #AI

Fri, 02 Jun 2017 16:45:00 EDT

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity that makes In-Memory Computing possible. This means that large databases can now reside entirely in memory, boosting the analytics performance as well as speeding up transaction processing. By virtually eliminating disk accesses, database query times can be shortened by many orders of magnitude, leading to real-time analytics for greater business productivity, converting wait time to work time.

The Simple Checklist for Solving Ghost Issues at Remote Offices | @CloudExpo #Cloud #APM #Monitoring

Fri, 12 May 2017 12:15:00 EDT

IT leaders have always had their hands full with ghost issues on-premises. But for businesses that rely on remote and branch offices, monitoring a sprawling network of on-premises equipment introduces even more challenges. That's why we move to the cloud, right? To help us eliminate truck rolls, improve cost efficiency and centralize management of applications across all locations. When you've migrated to the cloud (even if it's just for something like office applications like Office 365 or G Suite), you've already considered compliance, licensing, budget concerns. But what happens when your remote users start experiencing classic ghost issues?

I’m told that it has been 21 years since Scrum became public when Jeff Sutherland and I presented it at an Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications (OOPSLA) workshop in Austin, TX, in October of 1995. Time sure does fly. Things mature. I’m still in the same building and at the same company where I first formulated Scrum.[1] Initially nobody knew of Scrum, yet it is now an open source body of knowledge translated into more than 30 languages[2] People use Scrum worldwide for developing software and other uses I never anticipated[3].

[slides] #DevOps and @Docker | @DevOpsSummit #Serverless #Microservices

Mon, 01 May 2017 23:30:00 EDT

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of DevOps with containers and the benefits. In addition, he discussed known issues and solutions for enterprise applications in containers.

Big Data Without the Insight | @CloudExpo #BigData #DevOps #IoT #AI #ML

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 17:45:00 EDT

The Big Bang Theory is the pre-eminent explanation for the origins of the universe. It proposes, from an explosion of atoms, the universe rapidly expanded and in doing so created everything we know. But it did so in an erratic, haphazard and unstructured way. For every life form, an infinite amount of inhospitable desolate galaxies, planets and black holes were also created. Big Data is often associated with the birth of what is known as the Third Generation of IT and many are now at a crossroads: Do they continue down the current path, hoping to stumble upon a planet Earth as they navigate a sprawling universe of information and data that continually expands in a totally unstructured fashion? Or do they apply longer term strategy, investing now to refine their technology and capitalize on the explosion of information available.

DevOps Is Easier to Fail | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Agile #ContinuousDelivery

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 18:00:00 EDT

Since the term "DevOps" was coined in Belgium back in 2009, it has been impossible to avoid the debate raging around it. While we have watched it gain hype and momentum, many articles have been written to describe what elements of a DevOps strategy are required for it to be successful. In spite of this, not many organizations feel there is a need for DevOps. In a Gartner report entitled DevOps Adoption Survey Results (published in September 2015), 40% of respondents said they had no plans to implement DevOps and 31% of respondents said they hadn't implemented it but planned to start in the 12 months after the survey was conducted.

Omnichannel Challenge| @DevOpsSummit @Catchpoint #DevOps #WebPerf

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 18:45:00 EDT

Almost all of the luxury brands that we work with are somewhere on the long and winding road between multichannel and omnichannel. For outsiders, this seems to be a small step but in reality, this is an extremely complex transition. In the luxury industry, multichannel often means that the brands have created an online channel (sometimes completely outsourced) that is often developed and managed completely separately from the offline channel (brick-and-mortar stores) with only limited integration. Both channels use their own order and warehouse management platforms, logistical systems, and sometimes even ERP and CRM systems. Brick-and-mortar stores offered a luxurious shopping experience where customers could touch and feel the merchandise and provide immediate gratification. The online channel tried to attract customers with wide product selection, low prices, and additional content like product reviews and ratings.

Event Correlation and #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #AI #APM #Analytics

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 22:00:00 EDT

The purpose of event management and monitoring is to make sense of events, and while this may require some analytics and intelligence, the goal is an actionable alert — a meaningful notification that enables the right person to take the right control action. So, we may leverage predictive analytics as a form of artificial intelligence to achieve this goal, and we might even need to perform further analytics in order to get the information required to make a good decision. This right-to-left flow provides us with the knowledge and wisdom to make effective decisions, which is the basis for effective automation.

ITSM Analytics | @CloudExpo @Zoho #BigData #IoT #ITSM #BI #AI #Analytics

Wed, 12 Apr 2017 05:00:00 EDT

Over the past few years, IT service management (ITSM) has become increasingly important to an organization's IT strategy, and companies are seeking new ways to improve IT service delivery and efficiency via better ITSM processes. This increases the importance of tracking and measuring critical KPIs. However, due to overwhelmingly large amounts of data, users find it challenging to manually access, track and analyze critical help desk information quickly. Using advanced IT analytics, managers can identify blind spots and hidden gaps in their ITSM process as well as make accurate decisions by monitoring key metrics.

The Age of #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #AI #ML #DL

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 20:45:00 EDT

Next month will mark the 47th anniversary of Apollo 13. The film that recounts the story is a favorite of mine, probably because it so masterfully captures the incredible suspense, fear, and hope felt by people everywhere, that I personally recall very well. I also know how an organization’s digital transformation can generate similar reactions! Apollo 13 was likely a casualty of the space program’s incredibly aggressive schedule. NASA, with U.S. political and military leaders, was motivated by competition from the U.S.S.R. and fear of the potential consequences of not being first. Urgency often overruled caution. A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.

Cloud #Serverless Architecture | @CloudExpo @AccentureCloud #AI #DevOps

Sun, 02 Apr 2017 10:00:00 EDT

Contrary to conventional wisdom, we are not entering a new era of technology. We’re already there. We are living in the midst of one of the most disruptive periods in enterprise IT, and cloud is the leading catalyst. There are several trends marking this dramatic transition in 2017, five of which warrant close scrutiny. Public cloud use continues to grow at hyper-scale. A global survey from Accenture of nearly 1,900 executives across 15 industries reveals massive growth in public cloud. In the study, four out of five executives indicated that they intend to move more of their operations to the cloud within the next several years.

The Best Programming Languages | @CloudExpo #IoT #AI #API #Java #Python

Sat, 01 Apr 2017 16:00:00 EDT

Choosing a programming framework for a small business can be overwhelming– there are so many. Here are a few of the best choices, to help you get started. Ask a room of ten developers which programming framework is the ‘best on the market,' and you're liable to receive ten different answers. Each developer will sing the praises of a different language, and each one will very probably feel that theirs is the only logical choice. The most confusing thing, though? Each and every one of those developers will be correct.

Java vs. Python: Which One Is Best for You? | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Java #Python

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 16:00:00 EDT

Few questions in software development are more divisive or tribal than choice of programming language. Software developers often identify strongly with their tools of choice, freely mixing objective facts with subjective preference. The last decade, however, has seen an explosion both in the number of languages used in production and the number of languages an individual developer is likely to employ day to day. That means that language affiliations are sometimes spread more loosely and broadly across different codebases, frameworks, and platforms. Modern projects and modern developers are increasingly polyglot—able to draw on more languages and libraries than ever before. Informed choice still has a part to play.

What Are Containers? | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Kubernetes

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 20:30:00 EDT

End-user experience is everything when it comes to facilitating workplace productivity. You could deploy or develop the most powerful applications anyone has ever seen-but they won't do any good if they offer a poor experience. This is a major reason why applications are moving to SaaS, PaaS and IaaS cloud computing models. The cloud simplifies applications on the back end, which translates to smoother end-user experiences. But as cloud apps integrate more services and user bases diversify, IT has to do more to streamline application platforms. Enter container technology.

Side of #Serverless BS with Your Hardware FUD | @CloudExpo #SDN #AI #SDDC

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 01:15:00 EDT

A few years ago a popular industry buzzword term theme included server less and hardware less. It turns out, serverless BS (SLBS) and hardware less are still trendy, and while some might view the cloud or software-defined data center (SDDC) virtualization, or IoT folks as the culprits, it is more widespread with plenty of bandwagon riders. SLBS can span from IoT to mobile, VDI and workspace clients (zero or similar), workstations, server, storage, networks. To me what’s ironic is that many purveyors of of SLBS also like to talk about hardware.
