  • How to Sponsor @CloudEXPO Silicon Valley | #Cloud #IoT #Blockchain #Serverless #DevOps #Monitoring #Docker #Kubernetes Fri, 15 Feb 2019 04:45:00 EST
    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 throughout enterprises of all sizes.

  • Artificial Intelligence: The Good. The Bad, and The Ugly | @CloudEXPO @RedHat @GHaff #AI #ML #DL #ArtificialIntelligence Wed, 13 Feb 2019 16:45:00 EST
    Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different. Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains. It's developing into an increasingly commercially important technology area. (Although it's also easy to look at wins in specific domains and generalize to an overly-optimistic view of AI writ large.) In this session, Red Hat Technology Evangelist for Emerging Technology Gordon Haff will examine the AI landscape and identify those domains and approaches that have seen genuine advance and why. He'll also discuss some of the specific ways in which both organizations and individuals are getting up to speed with AI today.

  • Built in Docker Containers | @DevOpsSUMMIT @DataTheorem #DevOps #Serverless #Containers #Docker #AWS #Lambda #Kubernetes Sun, 10 Feb 2019 22:15:00 EST
    In 2017, Docker reached 24% adoption while Lambda reached 23.5% adoption among Amazon Web Services customers. Yet, the adoption rate of serverless and cost savings are dramatically better than what virtual containers can offer. Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are all pushing serverless because it's easier and cheaper for their customers. Also, once apps are built using serverless frameworks, there's a higher switch-over cost to go from one cloud to another. We'll discuss this and also talk about how brand loyalty is something every subscription service is hoping to achieve. Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are strengthening their offerings with serverless in the cloud.

  • Blockchain Law For Technologists | @CloudEXPO @BarclayDamonLLP #FinTech #Blockchain #Bitcoin #SmartCities Mon, 04 Feb 2019 08:15:00 EST
    As the fourth industrial revolution continues to march forward, key questions remain related to the protection of software, cloud, AI, and automation intellectual property. Recent developments in Supreme Court and lower court case law will be reviewed to explain the intricacies of what inventions are eligible for patent protection, how copyright law may be used to protect application programming interfaces (APIs), and the extent to which trademark and trade secret law may have expanded relevance to the cloud.

  • Gary Arora Joins @CloudEXPO NY Faculty | @AroraGary @DeloitteUS #CloudNative #Serverless #DevOps #DigitalTransformation Fri, 09 Nov 2018 12:30:00 EST
    92% of enterprises are using the public cloud today. As a result, simply being in the cloud is no longer enough to remain competitive. The benefit of reduced costs has normalized while the market forces are demanding more innovation at faster release cycles. Enter Cloud Native! Cloud Native enables a microservices driven architecture. The shift from monolithic to microservices yields a lot of benefits - but if not done right - can quickly outweigh the benefits. The effort required in monitoring, tracing, circuit breakers, routing, load balancing, etc. for thousands of microservices can become overwhelming. This talk will address strategies to run & manage microservices from 0 to 60 using Istio and other tools in a cloud native world.

    Cloud computing is a goal aspired to by all organizations, yet those in regulated industries and many public sector organizations are challenged in adopting cloud technologies. The ability to use modern application development capabilities such as containers, serverless computing, platform-based services, IoT and others are potentially of great benefit for these organizations but doing so in a public cloud-consistent way is the challenge.

  • Cloud Sprawl: The Rising Epidemic | @CloudEXPO @Citrix @TMinahan #AI #Agile #DevOps #DigitalTransformation Thu, 28 Jun 2018 10:00:00 EDT
    Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.

  • DevOps and Multi-Cloud Flexibility | @CloudExpo @Cedexis #DevOps #CloudNative #Serverless Fri, 22 Jun 2018 03:00:00 EDT
    Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chief Architect at Cedexis, covered strategies for orchestrating global traffic achieving the highest-quality end-user experience while spanning multiple clouds and data centers and reacting at the velocity of modern development teams.
