The promise of IoT is to have all things connected, feeding data and pushing content and solutions. This connectivity and the data from it has the potential to provide richer customer experiences, better business results, and much more informed consumers.

So what happens when we take what is personal and enhance it with technology? Tile enables people to choose the things that matter most to them, and make those things connected. No other mass market IoT device does that at scale. In his sessio… Web Real Time Communications (WebRTC) is changing the way we have traditionally communicated and collaborated.

To be specific, the technology allows developers to embed voice, data, instant messaging, and video into web browsers, thereby providing easier and far efficient ways to communicate than Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services such as Skype, WhatsApp, and WebEx.

In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D… Organizations are now three times more likely to adopt cloud-based provisioning of recovery sites.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a critical offering for cloud providers as it offers a non-intrusive solution for end users to effectively evaluate the cloud and become more amenable to using the cloud for further use cases.

He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest. The revocation of Safe Harbor has radically affected data sovereignty strategy in the cloud.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with… I can’t say I was entirely surprised when I saw a direct correlation between people who played Magic: The Gathering growing up and people in the DevOps space now.

What qualifies as success depends on the customer and produc… Cloud Computing – Big Data | Analytics – Internet of Things Containers – Microservices – WebRTC – DevOps Join Us at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, November 3-5 Cloud computing software is eating the world, and each day is bringing new developments in this world. Yesterday’s debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and Infrastructure as a Service.

Big Data | Analytics and the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) are driving exponentially increased demands on datacenters and developers alike, as we cross the zettabyte horizon this year. Containers and microservices are now part of every PaaS conversation, and IaaS providers are increasingly competing for platform customers. WebRTC continues to reform web communications, and DevOps is pushing its way into an enterprise IT world that is increasingly agile, lean, and continuous.

Through all this, Cloud Expo remains the single independent event where delegates and technology vendors can meet to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud. Only Cloud Expo brings together all this in a single location: • Cloud Computing • Big Data | Analytics • Internet of Things • Containers | Microservices • WebRTC • DevOps Cloud computing budgets worldwide are reaching into the hundreds of billions of dollars, and no organization can survive long without some sort of cloud migration strategy. Each month brings new announcements, use cases, and success stories.

Cloud Expo offers the world’s most comprehensive selection of technical and strategic Industry Keynotes, General Sessions, Breakout Sessions, and signature Power Panels. The exhibition floor features 100+ exhibitors offering specific solutions and comprehensive strategies. The floor also features a Demo Theater that give delegates the opportunity to get even closer to the technology they want to see and the people who offer it. Attend Cloud Expo. Create your own custom experience. Learn the latest from the world’s best technologists. Talk to the vendors you are considering, and put them to the test. See you in California!
