The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and
enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices -
computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by
2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several

As I wrote earlier this year over at InfoWorld, Microsoft took another step
toward being king of the cloud hill when it announced in January that it was
releasing its Azure stack to the public. There are many technical reasons why
this is cool, but more importantly, it's the psychological advantage this
Google has always had the ability for developers using its stack to develop
locally on the same tools that run in Google App Engine. It recently forked
its environments, so now the local and cloud environments are slightly
different for some of the configurations -- I can't tell you how many nights
I have lost sleep because of environments being slightly different!
Development and hosting are two completely different things. What Microsoft
did is one-upped Google and Amazon.
The psychological advantage comes into play for companies that aren't 100 ... (more)
40 Months of Hyper-Digital Transformation
In the next forty months - just over three years - businesses will undergo
extraordinary changes. The exponential growth of digitization and machine
learning will see a step function change in how businesses create value,
satisfy customers, and outperform their competition. In the next forty months
companies will take the actions that will see them get to the next level of
the game called Capitalism. Or they won't - game over. The winners of today
and tomorrow think differently, follow different strategies, deploy different
technologies, make cybersecurity a top priority and are cognizant the clock
To better understand the strategies and technologies required to be a digital
transformation winner, Cognizant's Center for the future of Work, in

Machine to Container (M2C) Teleports Existing Enterprise Apps to the Cloud
It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon
just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management. The new
Azure container service taps into Microsoft's partnership with Docker and
Mesosphere. You know when there's a standard for containers on the table
there's money on the table, too.
Everyone is talking containers because they reduce a ton of
development-related challenges and make it much easier to move across
production and testing environments and clouds. Containers are the technology
that, many believe, deliver on the long-promised portability in the cloud to
avoid vendor lock-in, and put developers, system administrators and their
enterprises in the driver's seat.
Getting up to speed about containers is not easy, but the good news is, the... (more)
Connected Teams, Connected Code, and the Connected Device: The Challenges of
IoT Software Delivery
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set
of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues.
In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate
application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end
service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each
component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and
practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the
integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software
updates for IoT more problematic. How do you coordinate the diverse moving
parts that must come together when developing your IoT product or updating
each of its components?

In this blog I’ll show you how to guard routes in Angular 2 Router
(currently at 3.0.0-beta.2).
Let’s consider some scenarios that require a certain validation to be
performed to decide if the user (or a program) is allowed to navigate to or
leave the route:
Allowed to open the route only if the user is authenticated and authorized to
do so. Implement a multi-part form that consists of several components, and
the user is allowed to navigate to the next form section only if the data
entered in the current one is valid. Allow to navigate to a route only after
a certain data structures have been populated. Remind the user about the
unsaved changes if he or she tries to navigate from the route.
The router has the hooks that give you more control over the navigation
to/from a route, and you can use these hooks to implement the any of above
scenarios to guard the routes.

As part of my prep for the talk we give at JavaOne 2012, I built a WebSocket
app using JavaFX 2.2 front-end with NetBeans 7.2 and the brand new JavaFX
Scene Builder 1.0.
The tools were a pleasant surprise, they were pretty straight-forward to use.
Most of the Oracle tutorials were helpful too, although I couldn’t find
signs of an active and extensive JavaFX developer community out there.
The app I wanted to build consumes the same data source as the lightning
fast Kaazing portfolio demo.
This video demonstrates what it looks like in the development environment, as
implementation of the Kaazing portfolio demo.
Step 1 – Creating a JavaFX App
First, I created a new project: JavaFX > JavaFX FXML Application.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
