Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can
businesses truly unlock that potential.
The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of
an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems
of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that
insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
In his Keynote at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer
at IBM, discussed bringing these three elements together via Systems of

Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we
live. "Anytime, anywhere" access to data and information is no longer a
luxury; it's a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For
IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver
meaningful services to the business and customers.
New tools, technologies, and frameworks have evolved recently to help manage
rapid shifts in the technology landscape, but they're only as good as the
underlying processes that exist within the organization. As lines of business

SOA World Magazine Becomes Microservices Journal
Even though it's now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World
Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL - soa.sys-con.com -
remains unchanged. And that's no mistake, as microservices are really nothing
more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)
best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade.
Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an
exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are talking
about microservices instead, ... (more)

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've
endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you
fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of
Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the
vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and
addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the
natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical
In the IoT vision, every new "thi... (more)

With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database.
