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)

[video] The Era of Open Analytics | @CloudExpo @ProgressSW #AI #ML #DX #BigData #Analytics

View General Session Here: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here View General Session Here: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here 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) ca... (more)

[session] AI-Enabled Enterprise | @CloudExpo @ReneBuest #AI #ML #DX #SmartCities

Live and Let Die: The Need for an AI-Enabled Enterprise The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses.

How Data Science Is Transforming Cancer Treatment Scheduling | @CloudExpo #Cloud #BigData

How Data Science Is Transforming Cancer Treatment Scheduling By Mohan Giridharadas, Founder & CEO, LeanTaaS iQueue Anyone who has ever had the misfortune of dealing with a cancer diagnosis - either personally or as a caregiver to a friend or loved one - must have at some point wondered why they invariably had to wait well past their treatment appointment time, every time. The root cause is that the healthcare scheduling system is broken. Healthcare providers are using a calculator, spreadsheets and standard electronic health record (EHR) templates to solve a math problem that demands a cluster of servers and data scientists to solve effectively. Most EHRs use scheduling templates that have no real scheduling intelligence built in. In their efforts to be patient-centric, they typically subscribe to a first-come, first-served "hair salon" methodology. Even the best among... (more)

Big Data’s Big Role in Reducing Water Stress | @CloudExpo #BigData #Analytics

Water stress is not an arcane term just used by hydrologists. It is defined as the inability to meet the ‘human and ecological demand for water.' The effective use of water resources has been well documented as a leading indicator of economic progress and the converse, damages to water resources can significantly impact economic growth. Here in the US, recent high-profile stories about poisoned water in Flint, Mich. and polluted water in Toledo, Ohio, have raised this issue for many who likely hadn't thought much about our national water supplies before. Alarmingly, as many as 3.5 million people in the US fall sick from water that has been contaminated by sewage each year according to a recent report. The UN reports that by 2040 one in four of the world's children will be living in areas with extremely limited water resources. To put it another way, 600 million chi... (more)

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Big Data Thrashing and Resolution - An Approach to Resolving Machine Learning of Analytics Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data. The solutions are scalable and highly available but tedious when swapping in and swapping out occurs in disarray and thrashing takes place. The resolution for thrashing through machine learning algorithms and support nomenclature is through simple techniques. Organizations that have been collecting large customer data are increasingly seeing the need to use the data for swapping in and out and thrashing occurs in both transaction processing and online analytical processing. Therefore, there is a growing need for support on thrashing using machine learning algorithms and solutions for use in "Big Data." Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here I... (more)

The Future of Multi-Cloud Computing | @CloudExpo #AI #Analytics #Compliance

What Is the Future of Multi-Cloud Computing? By Stephanie Rowan Like so many other IT solutions, cloud computing services have long been promoted from a standpoint of administrative efficiency. As the rationale goes, if you get your cloud services from a single provider, you'll enjoy the reduced hassle of consolidating third party business relationships, receive IT services at bargain prices, and have an easier time coordinating those services. It's true that using fewer service providers can offer some nice perks, but cloud computing is moving in the opposite direction at many companies. Instead of reaping the benefits of placing cloud services under one umbrella, businesses are mining the advantages of the antithetical approach: receiving cloud services from multiple providers - a discipline known as "multi-cloud computing." According to a mid-2016 report from Bu... (more)

Today’s Cloud and Hybrid IT Reality | @CloudExpo @SolarWinds #DataCenter

To more closely examine the variety of ways in which IT departments around the world are integrating cloud services, and the effect hybrid IT has had on their organizations and IT job roles, SolarWinds recently released the SolarWinds IT Trends Report 2017: Portrait of a Hybrid Organization. This annual study consists of survey-based research that explores significant trends, developments, and movements related to and directly affecting IT and IT professionals. The findings are based on a survey fielded in December 2016 that yielded responses from 205 IT practitioners, managers, and directors in the U.S. and Canada, from public and private sector small, mid-size, and enterprise companies whose organizations are leveraging cloud-based services for at least some IT infrastructure. The results help illustrate what a modern hybrid IT organization looks like - notably, ... (more)
