Another Great Rich Internet Application: Buzzword - Online Wordprocessing

Being pretty is one thing, but being incredibly functional is what makes RIAs exciting

Greg Wilson's Blog

Okay there are thousands of rich internet applications (RIAs) out there that I could write about but I’m trying to be very selective in order to provide a good sampling of different uses of RIAs and their advantages. Being pretty is one thing, but being incredibly functional is what makes RIAs exciting.

One key advantage to this type of document creation is the collaboration features. For example, multiple people can create, comment on and revise documents. Everyone works with the same version of the document so you avoid the error-prone emailing back and forth of files.

Buzzword is in preview mode and is free for all to use. It was recently acquired by Adobe so many cool changes are coming. Also, a version for AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) is in the works so you will will have the option of the same functionality in a desktop version.

Adobe recently acquired Buzzword. More information about Buzzword can be found on Adobe Labs.

I also found a demo on YouTube that demonstrates basic word processing, document sharing, etc..

Tons of other examples of RIAs are available at http://flex.org/showcase.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. 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.
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2017 and CloudEXPO New York 2017. He is a regular contributor to Cloud Computing Journal.
