Monson-Haefel Joins Curl In Pursuit of the Ideal RIA Platform

"I loved working at Burton Group - its a wonderful company."

"Curl is, IMO, the easiest to learn, the most productive, and technically the most capable of all the RIA platforms," said Burton Group analyst Richard Monson-Haefel today as he announced his resignation from his position at Burton Group for a new position as Vice President of Developer Relations at Curl, Inc.

"I loved working at Burton Group - its a wonderful company," Monson-Haefel blogged, in his "Clever Monkey" blog

He continued:

"One of my primary coverage areas as a Sr. Analyst had been RIA technologies including AJAX, Java applets, Adobe Flex, Curl, Silverlight, Nexaweb, OpenLaszlo, Backbase and many other solutions. I feel I know the RIA space better than most and I believe that Curl, which I posted about here, is the best RIA solution available today. Other solutions from Adobe, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Nexaweb and the open source community (mostly AJAX frameworks) all have strengths, but Curl is, IMO, the easiest to learn, the most productive, and technically the most capable of all the RIA platforms.

Curl is not as well known as other solutions and so I'm joining the Curl team based on my faith that a great technology can succeed if it has a great community. That's where I hope to make a difference."
"Leaving Burton Group - one of the best companies I have ever worked for - is a leap of faith," Monson Haefel added. "Faith in the intelligence and pragmatism of the development community. Faith that a superior technology can win. It is a leap of faith with which I leave my Ivory Tower . Faith in you. Faith in myself."

His last day at Burton Group is February 1st; his first day at Curl is February 18th.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
