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

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.

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)
Emerging IoT Markets - MSPs, Take Notice
Managed IT services wasn't even a phrase until the early 2000s and, today,
there are over 75,000 IT service providers in North America alone. By 2020,
there are going to be 50 billion connected devices, and managed IT services
might cease to be a phrase again. Unless the MPSs adapt to the new, connected
world, we are going to see diminishing returns in that space.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kirill Bensonoff, CEO of Unigma, will discuss
the different opportunities IoT will create for MSPs and IT service providers
- from on-site services, to monitoring, managing and consulting.
Kirill Bensonoff is the CEO of Unigma, where he is helping IT service
providers become cloud service providers. Prior, he co-founded
ComputerSupport.com, a national IT services provider.

Yesterday I had to record a 2-hour long webinar. The resulting .mov file was
about 1Gb in size. Then I needed to cut out a 40-minute fragment from this
movie and save it as a separate file. Doesn’t look like an overly
complicated task, does it? Started iMac on my MacBook Pro, which is not a
super powerful but decent machine: a quad-code Intel i7 CPU, 8Gb RAM, 100GB
of free space on my HD, Snow Leopard MAC OS.
Take 1. Started iMovie, then menu File, New Project, Import. The process
immediately grabbed all my system resources and After spending 30 minutes
iMove’s little panel with a progress bar displayed a message stating that
now it’s importing the next long movie I worked with in the past (a.k.a.
event). This gave me goose bumps. Where is the close or cancel button? That
little panel with the progress bar had none. The iMovie’s menu became
unresponsive, but even i... (more)

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)

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
