JDJ - Wed, 2015-08-05 00:00
Knowledge management, in business terms, refers to saving, developing, sharing, and effectively using knowledge for the benefit of organization. It refers to a multi-disciplined approach of achieving organizational objectives by making the best use of knowledge. Scientia potentia est (Latin proverb meaning "knowledge is power") attributed to 16th century philosopher Sir Francis Bacon is nowadays more valid than ever. Knowledge is power and knowledge management is the key to success. Knowledge management, in business terms, refers to saving, developing, sharing, and effectively using knowledge for the benefit of organization. It refers to a multi-disciplined approach of achieving organizational objectives by making the best use of knowledge.

Enterprise Modernization - The Next Big Thing By @DavidSprott | @CloudExpo #Cloud

JDJ - Tue, 2015-08-04 17:45
All enterprises, be they large or small, national or multinational, commercial or government agency, American or Chinese, Japanese or European, are carrying the dead weight of their history and almost certainly continuing to add unnecessary complexity and excessive cost that will progressively reduce effectiveness, with the potential to trigger existential crises. Newer enterprises including Internet platform and Cloud based companies are not immune from this effect. As Horace Dediu has commented, Nokia is a classic case of a large enterprise brought from market leadership to irrelevance and zero value in an extremely short space of time.

How to Tell If Your DevOps Solution Is Working | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

JDJ - Tue, 2015-08-04 17:30
Unless you fully automate infrastructure and platform provisioning, application build, test and deployment phases and have them working together in sequence, you can’t realize the ideal of continuous delivery. These ‘automation tool chains’ are a mandatory element of each DevOps environment. The number of manual activities in the application test and release processes can cause a downstream bottleneck. Changes pile up at the end of development and unit test activities in agile development environments like SCRUM or Kanban, therefore rendering them less effective. Automation tool chains significantly improve application delivery and operations performance in DevOps environments.

It Is Past Time to Deconstruct 'DevOps' By @DMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit

JDJ - Sun, 2015-08-02 19:30
It is interesting to me, how quickly the hype cycle of a good thing can turn it into a monster that will inevitably eat itself, leaving a much smaller – and much more useful – concept or toolset behind. It has happened over and over in high tech, one need only say “XML” to understand what I mean. It is definitely a useful tool for some jobs, but the “XML Everywhere” craze was insane. People declaring such patently false ideas as “It will end the need for programmers.”

The Dragon Signals Certainty of a Global Cloud War By @IanKhanLive | @CloudExpo #Cloud

JDJ - Sun, 2015-08-02 18:00
Alibaba, the world’s largest ecommerce provider, has pumped over a $1 billion into its subsidiary, Aliya, a cloud services provider. This is perhaps one of the biggest moments in the global Cloud Wars that signals the entry of China into the main arena. Here is why this matters. The cloud industry worldwide is being propelled into fast growth by tremendous demand for cloud computing services. Cloud, which is highly scalable and offers low investment and high computational capabilities to end users by eliminating the need to buy costly infrastructure and instead rent it from cloud providers, is now projected to be a $200 billion industry worldwide by 2020. This estimate may even get inflated as we get closer to 2020, given the fast growth rate of cloud.

It’s not hard to feel sorry for Chief Information Officers (CIOs) – the levels at which they need to operate change all the time… and depth and granularity of the dataflows that present themselves change all the time. Just when we thought we had the whole client-server model worked out, along came the Internet and cloud and the data center.

[session] Enabling Cloud Chargebacks By @IanKhanLive | @CloudExpo #Cloud

JDJ - Sat, 2015-08-01 22:45
Traditionally IT has been seen as a cost center with nothing but a cost associated with enabling, supporting and maintaining anything IT. IT on the other hand is an integral part of today’s enterprise that often does not have a replacement. IT can however be turned into a powerful profit center. IT can be empowered by giving it tools and mechanisms to enable chargebacks to work as an independent entity within an enterprise and offer services to its stakeholders. Powered by Solgenia’s revolutionary Cloud Monetization platform Powua, Enterprise IT can now create chargebacks to the granularity of bandwidth, storage space, processor computing power and even electricity usage if needed.

[slides] Track IT Usage By @dcomputaguy | @CloudExpo #Cloud

JDJ - Sat, 2015-08-01 17:30
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usage of their services for licensing and billing purposes? In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Delano Seymour, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at 6fusion, discussed how to meter and track your services using a consumption-based methodology that keeps pace with this cutting-edge technology.

Secure Your API… Like a Castle By @MHeusser | @DevOpsSummit #API #DevOps

JDJ - Sat, 2015-08-01 17:00
It's been three years since I compared medieval security to web security, and a few things have happened. Mobile and wireless have evolved as the dominant platforms, while the life between personal computing and business computing has continued to fray. And, of course, thanks to web services, the web-delivered API now dominates the connected world. It's time to take a second look, focusing on the API. That is, if our organization is a castle, then the API is the unique services that people can employ, both inside the castle (cooking the food, cleaning the stalls for the horses) and outside, replenishing supplies, or bringing books in and out. While the first and most obvious division that comes to mind is internal or external, we'd like to take a step back and mention threat modeling - through the eyes of a viscount.

Cyber Security – Don’t Bank on It with Third Parties | @CloudExpo #Cloud

JDJ - Sat, 2015-08-01 14:45
The majority of an organization’s revenues are dependent on suppliers, distributors and other third parties. But as Benjamin M. Lawsky, New York State’s Superintendent of Financial Services, points out: “Unfortunately, those third-party firms can provide a back-door entrance to hackers who are seeking to steal sensitive bank customer data.” By now most everyone is well aware of the major data breaches afflicting Target and Home Depot – both triggered through a third party – that affected more than 100 million consumers. But the problem persists. A recent report from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) revealed that nearly a third of 40 banks surveyed don’t require their third-party vendors to notify them in the event of an information security or other cyber security breach.
