Anders Wallgren Talks IoT with Software Engineering Daily - Listen to the Interview

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to be a major topic of discussion in the tech industry. Many people want to know: how is the IoT influencing me already? That's one of the themes of this week's conversation between Electric Cloud CTO Anders Wallgren and Software Engineering Daily Host Jeff Meyerson.

IoT continues to grow, with the proliferation of smart homes, wearables, smart cars, mHealth devices and more. For example, new cars today come pre-wired with hundreds of millions of lines of code already, and much of the embedded software is already connected to the Internet. This always-on connectivity offers manufacturers the ability to automatically update software and firmware on IoT devices and can greatly increase the rate of new feature updates, and the usability and usefulness to end users.

Developing software for the Internet of Things comes with its own set of challenges.  Security, privacy, testing complexities and unified standards are a few key issues. In his interview, Anders predicts that in the future, manufacturers will push out software updates without any opt-in or involvement required from the consumer (as he puts it, "the majority of consumers aren't aware that firmware needs to be regularly updated.") This places entirely new obligations on software development teams.

Developing software for the IoT requires completely new competencies for many enterprises. IoT spans nearly every aspect of software development, from the back-end to mobile to web to embedded. When managing software lifecycles, it's important to manage all of these areas. For companies who haven't historically had much experience developing software, getting into the IoT requires a big transition in order to meet customer expectations, and implementing DevOps practices can help facilitate this evolution.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
CloudEXPO has been the M&A capital for Cloud companies for more than a decade with memorable acquisition news stories which came out of CloudEXPO expo floor. DevOpsSUMMIT New York faculty member Greg Bledsoe shared his views on IBM's Red Hat acquisition live from NASDAQ floor. Acquisition news was announced during CloudEXPO New York which took place November 12-13, 2019 in New York City.
In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, at the same time that developers quickly spin up new cloud instances and executives push forwards new initiatives. The vulnerabilities created by migration to the cloud, such as misconfigurations and compromised credentials, require that security teams t...

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
