Progress “Bronze Sponsor” of @CloudExpo NY | @ProgressSW #DX #Serverless

SYS-CON Events announced today that Progress, a global leader in application development, has been named "Bronze Sponsor" of SYS-CON's 20th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. Enterprises today are rapidly adopting the cloud, while continuing to retain business-critical/sensitive data inside the firewall. This is creating two separate data silos - one inside the firewall and the other outside the firewall. Cloud ISVs often get requests to connect these silos using technologies such as VPN; however, these tend to be difficult to manage and are not engineered for accessing business data from the cloud. "Progress® DataDirect® offers the industry's first vendor-agnostic hybrid data gateway that enables any cloud application to securely access on-premises data without requiring changes to their c...

Can Design Thinking Unleash Organizational Innovation? | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData

I am so blessed with smart friends, and I am fortunate to count John Morley among that group. John recently introduced me to Stanford’s Design School (d.school). To say I was blown away would be an understatement. I was so jazzed by the one-hour tour that I have signed up for a 3-hour class (very expensive…costs like $12…my Starbucks coffee that will get me fired up for the class costs almost that much). So what about design thinking got me so jazzed? Three things immediately jumped out at me about the design thinking concept: The design techniques that the school teaches are very similar to the envisioning techniques that we use in our Vision Workshop consulting engagements at Dell EMC, so I’ve uncovered this opportunity to expand our Vision Workshop methodology with some new tools, tips, and techniques. There appears to be a very close correlation between the desi... (more)

How to Achieve #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo @DellEMC #DX #AI #IoT

Industry after industry is under siege as companies embrace digital transformation (DX) to disrupt existing business models and disintermediate their competitor's customer relationships. But what do we mean by "Digital Transformation"? Digital Transformation The coupling of granular, real-time data (e.g., smartphones, connected devices, smart appliances, wearables, mobile commerce, video surveillance) with modern technologies (e.g., cloud native apps, Big Data architectures, hyper-converged technologies, artificial intelligence, blockchain) to enhance products, processes, and business-decision making with customer, product and operational insights. In order to achieve digital transformation, organizations need to coordinate and align the following business and technology capabilities: Build out the organization's data and analytics capabilities and assets (e.g., da...

[session] The #IoT Evolution | @ThingsExpo @InteractorTeam #DX #SmartCities

The IoT Evolution Will Be Led by Novel ‘Abstraction' Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kausik Sridhar, a founder and CTO of Pulzze Systems, will discuss how given the magnitude of this ecosystem, retrofitting existing software and consumption models to stitch various components together leads to sub-optimal solutions. Though current approaches and methodologies create beneficial products, these do not necessarily transl... (more)
