Deconstruction of #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #IoT #AI #ML #DX

The Deconstruction of Digital Transformation Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo The complex idea behind the term digital transformation is that technology has created a fundamental shift in how organizations operate. The consumerization of technology - and the customer empowerment it created - has upended the traditional operating paradigm of organizations moving it away from a capital and process-centric model to a customer-centric one. The need to digitally transform your organization is now - or at least should be - a strategic imperative. The fact, however, that the term digital transformation is now a bona fide buzzword has obfuscated its importance. The problem is that we create buzzwords because we need a simple, shorthand way of communicating what is otherwise a complex idea. In the process, however, the deeper, underlying complexity of the...

@ThingsExpo Power Panel: Think Big – Then Think Bigger

FREE Registration to @ThingsExpo! The Internet of Things is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. Why? Because the "things" are not just desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. The "things" come from the world of sensor-driven Big Data that is even now expanding the size of the Web beyond what we thought just a few years ago. How big? Estimates from everyone from Gartner to the US Government foresee a 100X time increase - then a 1,000X increase - in Web traffic over the next few years. The world will need hundreds of billions of dollars of new servers, memory, storage, and data centers. The challenge to software developers will be increasing as never before. In this @ThingsExpo Power Panel, on June 9 at our New York City studio, @ThingsExpo conference chair Roger Strukhoff will lead a discussion with panelists Mac D... (more)

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)
