Digital Transformation and the Ignorance Penalty | @ThingsExpo #IoT #BigData #DigitalTransformation

During the Cold War the armies of East and West faced off along thousands of miles of borders with tens of thousands of tanks, artillery units, defensive positions, guns and soldiers. The costs for supporting these defensive postures were enormous. Nations invested hundreds of billions of dollars over the years maintaining these positions, not to counter an immediate known threat, but to prevent an unknown future threat.  In other words, they were investing in mass weapons, mass equipment, mass training and mass supplies to prevent an unknown threat, at an unknown location, at an unknown time.  They were investing to combat ignorance - a lack of knowledge.  They spent massive amounts defending against the unknown - everywhere.  That spending was the same as an ignorance penalty.  A penalty, so huge, it negatively impacted the economic futures of many countries.

Why Are APIs So Popular? | @CloudEXPO @AndyThurai #AI #API #IoT #IIoT #SmartCities #ArtificialIntelligence #DigitalTransformation

Kin Lane recently wrote a couple of blogs about why copyrighting an API is not common. I couldn’t agree more that copyrighting APIs is uncommon. First of all, the API definition is just an interface (It is the implementation detail that is important, and needs to be guarded), so it doesn’t make any sense to copyright an interface. (It is almost like copyrighting a pretty face ). Secondly, the whole idea of exposing an API is you are looking for others to finish the work you started by just providing the plumbing work. Why would anyone want to get involved with a copyrighted API and finish your work for you? Kin Lane says, “API copyright would prevent the reuse and remix of common or successful API patterns within a space. We are at a point where aggregating common, popular APIs into single, standardized interfaces is emerging as the next evolution in web and mobil... (more)

ARM Server to Transform #BigData to #IoT | @CloudExpo #IIoT #AI #ML #DX

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They're called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. What Is a Microserver...and What Isn't Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some years to come - growing to over 20% of the server market by 2016 according to Oppenheimer ("Cloudy With A Chance of ARM" Oppenheimer Equity Research Industry Report). According to Chris Piedmonte, CEO of Suvola Corporation - a software and services company focused on creating preconfigured and scalable Microserver appliances for deployin... (more)
