The Content Corner: Supporting Your Content

Wavebreakmedia Ltd/Wavebreak Media/Thinkstock This column revolves mostly around content creation and strategy, but an overlooked part of the content lifecycle is helping people find your content. Your content is made to be seen and without planning for promotion, it may never be found. The methods available to you may vary (wildly) at your agency, so remember your mileage may vary.So Many OptionsWithin the U.S. Courts, a plan is indispenable just to navigate the myriad communication options available, both “print” and digital (I use print in quotes because generally these days a print layout will only be presented in PDF form).These print options typically include a wide number of newsletters that are circulated on a monthly or bi-monthly or quarterly or whenever-we-get-around-to-it basis. Based on experience, newsletter audiences can be narrowly defined not only by agency or office, but also by areas of expertise such as human resources. If your content is of specific interest to an …

Scaling and Load Balancing WildFly on OpenShift v3 With Fabric8

By unknown Did you enjoy the first ride with Fabric8 and OpenShift v3? There’s more a lot more to come. After we got the first WildFly container up and running on Kubernetes, without having to deal with all it’s inherent complexity, I think it is about time to start to scale and load balance WildFly.Prerequisites
Make sure, you have the complete Vagrant, Fabric8, OpenShift v3, Kubernetes environment running. I walked you No matter how often you hit refresh at this point, there is never going to be another pod id in this response. Of course not, we’re only running one instance until now. Let’s switch to the Fabric 8 console and scale up the pods. Switch to the “Apps” tab and click on the little green icon on the lower right to your application. In the overlay change the number of pods from one to three. After a while, the change is reflected in your console and the pods go from downloading to green in a couple of seconds Let’s go back to our web-interface and hit refresh a couple of times…

Launching Your First App

App development is difficult. Successful app launching is nearly impossible, especially given the millions of apps competing for your users’ attention.I don’t claim to be an expert on the topic of launching apps. But I’m glad for the opportunity to share a few of the tips and tricks I learned while launching my first few applications for iOS and OS X.BackgroundThe app I’m going to be referencing is my latest project, GA.TODAY — a simple Google Analytics widget.I decided to build GA.TODAY after becoming frustrated with the lack of existing tools when it came to tracking multiple Google Analytics profiles. Which brings me to my first point…Your First App Should Be Something You Care AboutI’m going to be brutally honest: The possibility that your first app is a wild success is almost nonexistent.It’s not that your first app is a bad idea, or that you’re an incompetent designer or developer. It’s just that your first attempt at anything you do will typically have less-than-spectacular res…

Red Hat JBoss Fuse – Getting Started Home Loan Demo version 6.2 Part 1

By Christina Lin This is a update to my existing demo for people that are getting started to know Fuse, and wants to get their hands dirty and develop a JBoss Fuse project for the first time.There will be a series of blogs with video coming after this one, it is focus on playing with the integration framework in JBoss Fuse, which base on the open source project Apache Camel. And in the last video of the series I will deploy the integration projects onto the OSGi container and manage it with Fuse Fabric.The story behind the home loan demo is to prepare housing appraisals base on the content given real estate vendor. The appraisal needs to talk to local database, external google map API and also provide information through a web Restful API.For those of you have been following my work may know, I have made some changes to the demo, the old demo has place all integration functions in a single project and deploy on single container. But when I started to maintain, because it’s been a while…

Windows Server 2003 - I'm Late, I'm Late, for a Very Important Date! | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Windows Server 2003 End of Support is here and there is little most enterprises can do at this point to change the fact that they are now dependent on an unsupported operating system. Here we are at Microsoft's World Wide Partner Conference again, muttering "I'm late, I'm late," just like the herald-like white rabbit of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, (We have a cool White Rabbit twitter campaign going this week - check it out) except that we cannot manipulate time. This is the event where, last year, there were many sessions highlighting processes, tools and partner ecosystem to help companies migrate off of Windows Server 2003. Analysts, the media and Microsoft were talking in terms of close to 20 million machines in production still running Windows Server 2003. Back then, the opportunity was characterized as a Y2K situation that would result in as much as 45 billion dollars spent helping to remediate this event. read more

Unlock $11 Trillion IoT Value By @EsmeSwartz | @ThingsExpo #API #IoT

Last week’s #IoTuesday Twitter chat focused on the impact of the API economy on Internet of Things (IoT) as it transforms from Connected Devices to Connected Marketplaces. And IoT in turn creates the API economy. We had great participation from respected industry visionaries who share a view that APIs and API management, standards and interoperability play a critical role in the creation of IoT marketplaces. These days, there is not an industry or a consumer that is not familiar with the concept of IoT, whether from their view of the clichéd smart fridge to the impact of the Industrial Internet. It doesn’t matter what your business does or which industry you are serving. It also does not matter if you are a startup or an established enterprise with years of experience and a customer base in the 100s or 1000s. You should be asking yourself. read more

[session] Past, Present & Future of Container Deployment By @BCantrill | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Unbeknownst to some, organizations have run infrastructure containers in production for years, reaping benefits on the operational end but not yet providing value for developers. When Docker catapulted containers into mainstream adoption, another type of container emerged — one that’s enormously popular for developers, but not quite ready for Ops. It’s time to close the gap between the promise that Devs see in containers and the operational challenges of actually running them in production. In his session at DevOps Summit, Bryan Cantrill, CTO at Joyent, will demonstrate a third path: containers on multi-tenant bare metal that maximizes performance, security, and networking connectivity. read more

Running WildFly on Kubernetes. On Windows. Fabric8!

By unknown Have you ever dreamed about running WildFly on OpenShift and leverage the latest Kubernetes features: On Windows? Sounds like blasphemy: Everything about those technologies is screaming GO and Linux. Windows doesn’t seem to be the right fit. But I know, that there are many developers out there, being stuck on Windows. Corporate laptops, easy management and whatever reasons the different employers come up with. The good news is, there is a small and brave group of people, who won’t let those Windows users down. And I have to admit, that running a Windows operating system while working for Red Hat is a challenge.
We’re a Linux company and an open source company and everything Windows simply feels wrong.
As my fellow colleague Grant stated in a blog-post a couple of weeks ago:
“That being said, I have decided to use Windows as my primary operating system in order to ensure that OpenShift has a great developer experience for Windows users. “
So, I tried to get Kubernetes and Ope…

Finding the Right On-Ramp to the Cloud By @Dana_Gardner | @CloudExpo #Cloud

The best of virtualization and the best of hardware integration are creating the preferred on-ramps to the cloud. IT organizations are well enamored of virtualization. They are so into the trend that many have more than 80 percent of their server workloads virtualized. They like hybrid cloud conceptually, but are by no means adopting it enterprise-wide. We’re talking less than 30 percent of all workloads for typical companies, and a lot of that is via shadow IT and software as a service (SaaS). read more

Mobility, Sensors, Robotic Process Automation By @KRBenedict | @ThingsExpo #IoT

If you have spent any time working on IT projects you would have heard the comment, "The system is only as good as the data." It's an accurate and necessary statement, as it describes a prerequisite for many technological innovations. Many system designs fail in the face of reality. Reality is often a cloaked term for implementing a digital solution in a physical world without a sufficient understanding of how the physical world operates. This is one problem where sensors can really help. read more

Guardians at the Gate: Securing Third-Party Access to Critical Systems | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Access is everything. It is the fundamental pillar that determines whether critical enterprise assets are safe or exposed. Knowing the answers to the questions of who is accessing what, where they are accessing that information from, why they are accessing that information and, finally, what exactly they’re accessing are the basic questions that stand between a breach and brand reputation. read more

Machine Learning - Azure vs AWS By @SrinivasanSunda | @CloudExpo #IoT #Cloud

Machine Learning, which is a process to predict future patterns and incidents based on the models created out of past data, is definitely the most important part of the success of the Internet of Things in the enterprise and consumer space. The main reason is that without machine learning the entire backbone of the Internet of Things - event acquisition, event processing , event storage and event reporting - is merely a live display of events happening elsewhere and will not provide any value to its consumers. Think of a smart monitor in an oil well that monitors various climatic conditions and other factors that can cause a failure; unless the monitor is able to predict of a failure and corrects itself the usage of such solution is quite limited. read more

Free the Data: FEMA’s New Data Visualization Tool

FEMA collects data from disasters. We look at various hazards over time, and a question we get a lot when we’re trying to talk about what can happen is what has happened previously?Providing data in its raw format and also building visualization tools allows people to look at their past history, look at what kind of hazards they are vulnerable to, and look at the frequency of disaster declarations and the impacts. These are useful tools to give people context to what their past looks like when they are planning for future risk.Not everyone is a programmer. Some people can take our raw data and manipulate it quite effectively. When I was a county emergency manager, I was a staff of one, so even if you put the data out there in its raw feeds, I really didn’t have the skills or resources to look at it.So our strategy has two parts to it: make the data available at its lowest common denominator (which is our feeds) and then then build visualization tools around the most frequently asked q…
