WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The emerging Internet of Everything creates tremendous new opportunities for customer engagement and business model innovation. However, enterprises must overcome a number of critical challenges to bring these new solutions to market.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Martin, CTO/CIO at nfrastructure, will outline these key challenges and recommend approaches for overcoming them to achieve speed and agility in the design, development and implementation of Internet of Everything solutions within your organization.
Deming, the patron saint of DevOps once advised, “It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.”
To survive, application development teams are constantly pressured to deliver software even faster. But fast is not enough. The best organizations realize that security, quality and integrity at velocity are mandatory for survival. Hence, DevOpsSec.
My aim here is to leave you uncomfortably amazed. While the pace of development has changed significantly, our processes to secure our applications has not changed enough. It is as if a wildfire has raged uncontained for years now but we have failed to take notice.
Maybe that sounds a bit crazy, but once I share a little background on what is happening, you’ll understand why innovation in this arena is critical for survival (when it comes to your applications). If you are aiming to ramp up your own Rugged DevOps or DevOpsSec practices, this is critical reading material.
Your cloud is highly, if not completely, virtualized. So, you need scale and agility that conventional LUN- and volume-based storage, built for physical workloads, just can’t provide. Spending hours mapping applications to LUNs and constantly tuning performance no longer delivers guaranteed performance SLAs and quality of service (QoS). Even after that, you still lack visibility in a multi-tenant, multi-hypervisor environment, and resorting to guesswork in planning and troubleshooting certainly isn’t a stable way to scale, either.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dan Florea, Director of Product Management at Tintri, will investigate the fundamental disconnect between your virtualized applications and underlying storage. Work in VMs, not LUNs or volumes.
A typical software testing team might have a business expert, a toolsmith, a few technical investigators, and perhaps a manager.
A savvy manager knows one of the investigators is interested in mobile, another in APIs, and tries to ‘steer’ the work toward the right person. This brings up some questions. What happens when the workload doesn’t allow this – the mobile expert goes on leave, or the team members complain they are “pigeonholed”?
We’re fresh off a great week at DistribuTECH 2016 where we saw a gamut of technologies, thought leaders and trends. With utilities and energy still top-of-mind, our focus this week is on the changing face of the industry. This digital age means we have come to expect that the power will always charge, operate and run our numerous IoT devices. That’s why this week’s IIoT top news is dedicated to powering our electrical future. So, it should come as no surprise that, the electric power industry has made it their mission to protect and secure this precious power at all costs. The power initiative has teamed up with federal agencies, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation to continue to build its capabilities.
Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools, to creating feedback loops improving product design, to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from disparate devices and applying data analytics ultimately, business logic to that data. Properly implemented, IoT can effectively deliver these business outcomes.
