IoT is the next development of how the Internet is applied to the world. TAM for M2M/IoT is estimated at $19 trillion. The IoT device count is in the billions but will not traverse the service providers’ networks. Service providers and vendors are struggling to understand how to map the TAM dollars to real use cases, optimal technology approaches, and profitable business models.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dennis Ward, IoT analyst, strategist at DWE, will focus on the SP transformations that will occur. In Phase I SP infrastructure virtualization. In Phase II SPs will focus on monetizatio...
The lines between the corporate network and Internet are getting increasingly blurry. As companies rely on the cloud, employees become more mobile and there is a rise in third-party users who need access to certain applications or resources. Traditional network perimeters, VPNs and the concept of trusting everyone as long as they had the right credentials to log in is simply not enough these days. In fact, this broad trust has resulted in serious breaches, with personal, corporate and government data being exposed to hackers.
“It's important to have control over each module and each service in order to distribute the load and make the whole system flexible. We need to work with every component of the infrastructure and adjust it – and IaaS with its ready solutions helps us and saves both our and our customers' time,” explained MobiDev CEO Oleg Lola and CCO Oleksii Ostroverkhyi, in this exclusive Q&A with Cloud Expo Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff.
If you’re part of a substantial development organization standardized on Microsoft development tools, chances are you’ll need to integrate Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Visual Studio with third-party tools. The DevOps movement further highlights the need to connect a diverse set of people, processes, and tools, including the business stakeholders and the operations space. When establishing a modern end-to-end development practice you’ll almost certainly need to hit the integration button. Here are a few insights to set you on the right path:
The Microsoft Visual Studio Integrated...
Today’s business ecosystems span across multiple organizations, security perimeters and trust zones, increasing the number of attack vectors. With the migration of enterprise applications to the cloud, attack surfaces have expanded significantly. Compounding the problem, today’s wave of attacks are more sophisticated and diversified than ever. The combination of enterprise complexity and advanced attacks has broken the traditional enterprise perimeter, creating the perfect storm for threats and information loss, where a new security paradigm is needed.
Advanced software asset management methods can efficiently enforce compliance, reduce audit risk, cut costs, and enhance end-user productivity -- even as the complexity of IT itself increases.
As IT systems, resources, assets, and information are more scattered across more enterprise locations and devices -- as well as across various cloud service environments -- how can IT leaders hope to know where their "stuff" is, who’s using it, how to secure it, and then accurately pay for it?
Better than ever, it turns out. Advanced software asset management (SAM) methods can efficiently enforce compl...
Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds.
Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
Tune into: a cloud mindset One of the tenets of the cloud religion is that it should be possible – through the use of intelligent software – to build reliable systems on top of unreliable hardware. Just like you can build reliable and affordable storage systems using RAID (Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks). One of…Read more Tune into the Cloud – Losing My Religion
While the Beatles may not have been too concerned about cloud uptime or network security when they wrote their famous ballad, they had the right idea about turning to friends for a helping hand. It’s a lesson CIOs should take to heart.
After all, the IT department – including network, systems, applications and database administrators – is often the eyes, ears and hands of the CIO, providing front-line information and making recommendations on the latest technology and IT methods to ensure that business is running at optimum efficiency and achieving competitive advantage through technology. ...
When it comes to how trends like Big Data, mobility, cloud computing and social networking have impacted organizations, it’s clear that it has led to a large shift that has paved the way for a new market of startups who boldly embrace these trends and other organizations who are still struggling to keep up. But these trends have only started to pave the way for what we might see in the next 10 years, and the future is exciting.
We’ve seen the impact the four tech mega trends; Big Data, Always-Connected Mobile Devices, Social Networking and Cloud Computing, have on the way organizations oper...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
Converged infrastructure solutions are hastening the path to big-data business value and cloud deployment options.
We'll also delve into how the right balance between open-source and commercial IT products helps in creating a big-data capability, and we'll further explore how converged infrastructure solutions are hastening the path to big-data business value and cloud deployment options.
While the idea of converged infrastructure isn’t that new, and we’ve seen some strong efforts from vendors over the last few years to drive more adoption, the uptake from enterprises has been met with some challenges. In 2014, and now in 2015, organizations are not just looking to gain bigger returns on their cloud investments, but
I've been asked several times recently about the difference between Verification and Validation in automated testing and for some advice on applying and documenting each kind of testing. Let me first take a minute to define these terms.
Verification is testing that your product meets the specifications / requirements you have written. "Did I build what I said I would?"
There are many parallels to Google’s move to set up Alphabet as a holding company to remain at the forefront of innovation and what is required by all companies to foster innovation in the age of the Cloud and IoT. No one will argue that Alphabet was a change Google needed to make to remain relevant, fresh and innovative across a number of product initiatives. Under the Alphabet structure, Google provides operating divisions with the freedom and accountability for making decisions all while being nimble and quick on their feet. And perhaps most importantly, keeping their most creative people e...
