The Right AWS Services | @CloudExpo @BMCSoftware #TrueSight #AI #AWS

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here It's Complicated - Choosing the Right AWS Services Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Gamification and IoT | @ExpoDX #IoT #IIoT #Gamification #DigitalTransformation

Gamification and Rewards Programs Utilizing the IoT Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Most people haven't heard the word, "gamification," even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is "the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation." Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics - rules, constructs, processes, and methods - into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid Data, discussed how wearables, analytics, and geospatial technologies can be combined to transform the world into the ultimate game board. Organizations can grasp consumer, employee, or client intrinsic interest by setting up cool, collaborative, and rewarding systems using the IoT. Download Slid... (more)

Open Analytics | @CloudExpo @ProgressSW #AI #IoT #BigData #Analytics

Welcome to the Era of Open Analytics Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. "Open analytics" is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark. Cloud APIs are commonly designed to support application integration representing a disconnect with the analytics ecosystem. These combined trends create significant demand for a "bring-your-own-analytics" (BYOA) capability for cloud applications. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sumit Sarkar, Chief Data Evangelist at Progress... (more)

The City of the Future | @ExpoDX #AI #IoT #IIoT #API #FinTech #SmartCities

Our cities have been connected since the dawn of urbanization in the Indus Valley and on the plains of Mesopotamia nearly ten millennia ago. Cities exist to gather and connect people, bringing us together into communities and joint ventures that need complex networks of communication. But in recent years the connected city has come to mean something more. Today and in the future, the connected city will not just be about people connecting with people, but people with machines, people with people via machines, and perhaps most importantly, machines with machines. Today's cities use connectivity technologies in many ways. Smart adaptive traffic management is used to change the behavior of traffic lights in response to traffic flow. Parking sensors reduce congestion and pollution by detecting parking space availability and directing drivers to open spots. Trash cans sh... (more)

Stopping the White Walkers of Data Monetization | @ExpoDX #IoT #M2M #BigData #DigitalTransformation

As we end 2017, I’m tired of writing “lecturing” blogs about what organizations should be doing to master data monetization in order to power their business models and achieve digital transformation. While the objective of every organization should be to master big data and data science (artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning) to drive “data monetization,” let’s take a breath and have some fun. My recent ankle surgery afforded me the opportunity to binge watch “Game of Thrones.”  As I watched the impending battle between the White Walkers and humanity, I couldn’t help but identify a number of lessons that we can learn from Jon Snow’s battle with the leader of the White Walkers…and the power of Valyrian steel! Game of Thrones and data, not exactly two things you think are in harmony, but this is where I find myself. Figure 1: White Walker’s “Oh Sh*... (more)

Why SDS Is a Hot Topic | @CloudEXPO @CompuVerdeSDS #SDS #Serverless #DataCenter

Many factors are contributing to the endlessly increasing volumes of data that organizations must now deal with, including cloud-based infrastructure and virtualization. This data contains a wealth of information that enterprises can use to transform their businesses, but first, a place for it must be found. Software-defined storage (SDS) has been gaining ground because it is highly flexible as well as affordable. It's no surprise, then, that the SDS market is expected to realize revenues of nearly $16.2 billion in 2021. Enterprise storage spending is shifting from on-premises IT infrastructure toward private, public and hybrid cloud environments and from hardware-defined, dual-controller array designs toward SDS. However, buying options are not as clear-cut as you might like them to be. All SDS options on the market share certain traits, but they are not all crea... (more)
