SYS-CON Launches "PBDJ 2009" Website for PowerBuilder Developer's Journal

The largest PB knowledge repository in the world, PBDJ has served more than 8 million pages of PowerBuilder know-how to date

SYS-CON Media announced today that the Website showcasing one of its most distinguished titles, PowerBuilder Developer's Journal (PBDJ), founded in 1994 and now now in its sixteenth consecutive year of publication, has been stunningly re-designed and re-launched at PBDJ 2009 - where under the technical-savvy leadership of longtime Editor Bruce Armstrong, PBDJ continues to publish in-depth perspectives, technical features, industry columns, book reviews and excerpts, all written by thought leaders in the worldwide PowerBuilder community.

Distinguished contributions over the years have included an article by Sybase's own Dr Raj Nathan, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Worldwide Marketing and Business Solutions Operations, and a very popular interview with Sybase Chairman, CEO and President, John S. Chen. (The full Chen interview can also be viewed here on SYS-CON.TV.)

Most important, the all-new site introduces for the first time a welter of new and original social features, including the ability for every member of the PowerBuilder community to create his or her own wholly individual customized home page, in connection with the articles and blogs they contribute to the community. It is now simple to become a high-profile member of the most active group of PowerBuilder experts anywhere on the Web, and with just a few clicks to obtain a 100% professional-standard homepage that will become the mainstay of many contributors' web- and professional life, and deeply integrated with PBDJ 2009 into the bargain!

"The new look and feel of the PBDJ 2009 site, and most especially the brand new and dynamic functionality that has been created to support it, represents a timely reminder of the continuing significance of the worldwide PowerBuilder user base," said Jeremy Geelan, Sr. Vice-President, Editorial & Events at SYS-CON Media. "As publisher of the first and only magazine in the world exclusively serving that user base, SYS-CON is tremendously excited to be playing its part in helping to maintain Sybase's PowerBuilder at the very forefront of Enterprise IT reporting and analysis in 2009."

"PowerBuilder Developer's Journal published 4,325 original articles on Sybase, 1,765 technical articles, tutorials, feature stories on PowerBuilder, and 899 articles on Sybase iAnywhere," said SYS-CON founder Fuat Kircaali. "SYS-CON has served more than 8 million pages to PBDJ readers and Sybase PowerBuilder customers."

In addition to PowerBuilder, the new-look site will also be covering Sybase's many related initiatives, including PowerDesigner, PocketBuilder, DataWindows.NET, EAServer, Workspace and SQL Anywhere - as well as additionally running occasional articles on other products such as Adaptive Server Enterprise, Open Client, and Mobilink.

With an estimated 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, several industries will begin to expand their capabilities for retaining end point data at the edge to better utilize the range of data types and sheer volume of M2M data generated by the Internet of Things. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and President of Infobright, discussed the infrastructures businesses will need to implement to handle this explosion of data by providing specific use cases for filterin...
IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
