While American Idol finalist Adam Lambert’s “My heart is a Ghost Town”
is slowly moving down the international hit rankings, enterprises see
something else slowly but surely turning into a ghost town. Namely their data
For many IT managers, this is still a bit of a shock. Sure, most companies
stopped a long time ago featuring their data center on a raised floor behind
glass, right next to their reception area, but for many IT professionals a
trip to the company data center still feels a little bit like coming home. I
can still remember the disappointm... (more)
Salesforce IoT Cloud: Massive Scale For ‘Internet Of Customers’
Both Lightning and Thunder jolted the audience out of their seats at this
week’s massive Dreamforce conference. But the news wasn’t about the
weather. It was all about two major platform announcements by customer
relationship management leader Salesforce.
Lightning is a collection of components and tools for building better
applications with updated, modern user interfaces. Yet, just like its
namesake, Lightning provides both flash and power, as Salesforce is gradually
rewriting their Salesforce1 platform with Lightn... (more)
What Can John Lennon Teach Us About DevOps?
"Life," according to a saying often attributed to John Lennon, "is what
happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
Nowhere is this truer than in IT - especially in the world of ops. Operations
staffs spend much of their time firefighting infrastructure emergencies.
These unplanned activities drive up costs and keep IT from focusing on the
support of new projects that have strategic value to the business.
And, according to numbers from IDC and others, things are getting worse - not
better. IT's server firefighting costs have mu... (more)
I was recently watching one of my favorite science fiction TV shows (I'll
confess, ‘Dr. Who'). In classic dystopian fashion, there was a scene in
which a young boy is running for his life across some barren ground in a
war-ravaged world. One of his compatriots calls out to him to freeze, not to
move another inch. The compatriot warns the young boy that he's in a field of
hand mines (no, that is not a typo, he did say hand mines). Slowly, dull gray
hands with eyes in the palm start emerging from the ground around the boy and
the compatriot. Suddenly, one of the hands grabs the com... (more)
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or
containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this
cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it
very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud.
In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will
advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines
would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying
about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs fo... (more)
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value.
In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it?
Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc.
In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
