Big data automation can mean writing dozens of scripts to process different
input sources and aligning them in order to consolidate all this data and
produce the required output.
Why exactly do you need big data for your enterprise projects? Many industry
observers have been noting that although a lot of enterprises like to claim
that their big data projects are aimed at "deriving insights" that replace
human intuition with data-driven alternatives, in reality though, the
objective appears to be automation. They point out that the role of data
scientists at a lot of organizations has got little to do with replacing
human intuition with big data. Instead, it is about augmenting human
experience by making it easier, faster and more efficient.
But automating big data processing is easier said than done and the biggest
problem here is that big data is well big. What thi... (more)
The IoT Is a Mess: That's the Good News!
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables,
Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids,
Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards
every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an
entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to

It must be, I thought, one of the races most persistent and comforting
hallucinations to trust that "it can't happen here" - that one's own time and
place is beyond cataclysm.
Security is one of the most controversial topics in the software industry.
How do you measure security? Is your favorite software fundamentally
insecure? Are Docker containers secure?
Dan Walsh, SELinux architect, wrote: "Some people make the mistake of
thinking of containers as a better and faster way of running virtual
machines. From a security point of view, containers are much weaker."
If the cloud was once (ever) bleeding edge, now the cloud is sheer necessity
for anyone doing anything on the Internet. It has changed the way we
architect applications, build IT budgets, grow userbases, even write
individual lines of code. As the Internet continues to lambdify, cloud
services will become more specialized; but for now, how can you take
advantage of the granularity, elasticity and pre-baked-ness of modern cloud
services? And, on the flip side, as your applications expand outside
blade-boxes and even beyond individual data centers, how do you design
applications ... (more)

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things.
And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here
