"As Agile in the enterprise matures and reaches further into IT operations, Continuous Delivery helps organizations reduce the risk and time it takes to deliver quality software," said Humble, a principal at ThoughtWorks Studios. "I look forward to helping IT executives develop strategies to innovate rapidly and increase feedback from customers by applying the tools provided by Continuous Delivery."

These executive events offer IT professionals the opportunity to engage with ThoughtWorks industry experts and to learn how Continuous Delivery is shaping the future of software development. Continuous Delivery is a revolutionary Agile methodology that enables any team, including teams within enterprise IT organizations, to achieve rapid, reliable releases through better collaboration between developers, testers, operations and the business. It also enables the automation of the build, deploy, test and release process to massively reduce both cycle time and the transaction cost of putting out new releases.

During the talk Humble will discuss the value of Continuous Delivery to the business, with reference to the Lean Startup movement. He will present the principles and practices of Continuous Delivery, the deployment pipeline, acceptance test driven development, zero-downtime releases and incremental development. He will then outline how Continuous Delivery creates a holistic ecosystem that includes DevOps, cloud computing, Agile testing and continuous deployment.

The Continuous Delivery Executive Events are currently scheduled for Chicago on Oct. 21, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at ThoughtWorks corporate headquarters, 25th floor of the AON Center (lunch included).

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
