According to Paolo Malinverno, Gartner Analyst, "Through 2010, the lack of working SOA governance arrangements will be the most common reason for SOA failures. The biggest barriers to SOA adoption will be non-technical issues related to inadequate governance, lack of clear value metrics, poorly defined requirements and scope, and insufficient business involvement in project prioritization and service identification."1

Giacomo Segalli, Partner at Spike Reply, said, "We have consolidated experience and skills in SOA & Web2.0 Security and via the Vordel partnership we’re able to provide to our customers the perfect “link” between consultancy and technology. As a result we’re able to assist our customer during the entire life cycle of a “SOA Security adoption plan” : from best practices definition, SOA Security & Risk Assessment and, finally, through to design and implementation of a SOA Security Infrastructure."

Giacomo Segalli continued, "We have partnered with Vordel because their best-of-breed products address the stringent governance and security requirements of our customers across several industry sectors. Using Vordel solutions our customers are able to leverage their existing infrastructures; reduce the time to production of their SOA applications; and generate a quick and high return on investment."

Jacques Declas, VP Global Sales with Vordel, welcoming the announcement, said, "As the leading security consultancy company in Italy, Spike Reply is proving to be the perfect partner for Vordel. Spike Reply’s decision to select Vordel as their preferred security and XML networking platform is testimony to the proven capabilities of Vordel’s technology and our track record in delivering enterprise level solutions across industry sectors."

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
