Critical IoT Communications | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #InternetOfThings

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action. read more

The Biggest Performance Testing Stories of 2015 | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

We thought it’d be fun to offer a look back at some of 2015’s biggest performance testing stories. Or in some cases, maybe all that was tested was our patience. Either way, here’s a quick trip down memory lane. Here we are - just a day away from 2016. It's hard to believe the year is over. It's even harder to believe everything that happened this year. If you build and test software you probably powered through a ton during these past 12 months, to the point where you can't even understand where the time went. Yet if you pick your head up and think about all that's transpired, you might be surprised. read more

How ABMC Got Started with Mobile App Development

In the sea of apps, users get choosey with which apps can take up space on their phone. With one uninstall click the user can decide to breakup with the app if they have a bad experience. To keep your app from being all alone, the MobileGov Community of Practice put together six Mobile User Experience Guidelines to help keep mobile users in love. DigitalGov University hosted a webinar in which the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) highlighted two of these guidelines.totallyPic.com/iStock/Thinkstock When ABMC was deciding how to pursue app development, their work consisted of User Experience Guidelines 2 and 4: follow user interface guidelines and government regulations from the beginning of development and test at multiple points in the process.Sarah Herrmann, Digital Communications Manager at ABMC, said ABMC’s mobile strategy is to provide a wireless tour guide experience for monuments located around the world.

Anders Wallgren Talks IoT | @ThingsExpo #BigData #IoT #M2M #Wearables

The Internet of Things (IoT) continues to be a major topic of discussion in the tech industry. Many people want to know: how is the IoT influencing me already? That’s one of the themes of this week’s conversation between Electric Cloud CTO Anders Wallgren and Software Engineering Daily Host Jeff Meyerson. IoT continues to grow, with the proliferation of smart homes, wearables, smart cars, mHealth devices and more. For example, new cars today come pre-wired with hundreds of millions of lines of code already, and much of the embedded software is already connected to the Internet. This always-on connectivity offers manufacturers the ability to automatically update software and firmware on IoT devices and can greatly increase the rate of new feature updates, and the usability and usefulness to end users. read more

The Data Briefing: Design for Developer Experience (DX) and Data Prosumer Experience (DPX)

Recently, DigitalGov devoted an entire month to exploring how good user experience (UX) helps government design better digital products and services. UX is the art and science of understanding how people will use a website or mobile app to solve a problem or meet a need. UX is a combination of neuroscience, communication theory, information architecture, content strategy, graphic design, and responsive programming to build an experience that is inviting and beneficial to users.Along with UX, there are two new types of experiences that organizations are encouraged to design for: the developer experience (DX) and the data prosumer experience (DPX). Both types of experiences recognize the role that data plays in building digital products and services and have much in common with UX. Even so, DX differs fundamentally from DPX, and both are a different twist on UX.vasabii/iStock/Thinkstock Developer experience (DX) focuses on the developers who use APIs (Application Programming Interfaces)

CX Community—Year One

Customer experience, or CX, is everywhere these days. Companies tout how they’re improving the customer experience with faster service, greater convenience or better products. If you’re wondering how customer “experience” differs from customer “service,” customer service usually involves a single interaction, such as a phone call to your cable company, while the customer experience encompasses the entire relationship, e.g., from how you originally selected your cable company, to their service throughout the course of your entire relationship with them.How does this relate to government? Well, since government is primarily a sole-source provider, people typically don’t have another choice—they must work with us to fulfill critical tasks such as paying taxes or getting a driver’s license. To me, that means we have an even greater responsibility to provide excellent service.OlegSirenko/iStock/Thinkstock That’s why I feel honored to lead the government Customer Experience Community of Prac…

Top 18 Database Blogs | @BigDataExpo #BigData #IoT #Microservices

In today's rapidly changing IT world, database experts who wish to remain relevant must keep up-to-date on all kinds of technology - both database-related and other. DBAs should understand new data-related technologies but also other newer technologies that interact with database systems. Don't ignore industry and technology trends simply because you cannot immediately think of a database-related impact. Many non-database-related "things" eventually find their way into DBMS software and database applications. An example for that is Agile methodologies, such as DevOps and Continuous Delivery which until recently were not thought of as part of the database eco-system. My list of the top 18 news and opinion sites that DBAs, database developers, SysAdmin, and other database pros should check on a regular basis read more

DevOps Resolutions for 2016 | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

At year-end, we often consider where we’ve fallen short over the last twelve months – and how we can do better over the next twelve. For IT leaders, DevOps is likely to be a primary concern for 2016. As application awesomeness becomes more important to the business, IT must get great code into production faster. DevOps success is thus imperative – especially if you’re competing against digital-first market disrupters. DevOps, though, isn’t just about engineering better processes. It’s also about cultural transformation. This reality makes some IT leaders uneasy, because excellence at operational management – rather than cultural leadership – got them where they are today. read more

IoT and Hyper-Contextual Marketing | @ThingsExpo #IoT #InternetOfThings

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, explored examples of brands transforming their businesses by tapping into this powerful aspect of the IoT. He also reviewed some emerging techniques being used for hyper-contextual engagement in consumer IoT apps. read more

AgilData Sneak Peek By @DanKLynn | @CloudExpo #BigData #Microservices

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organizations as their products become successful and the data grows beyond the initial scope of the database, whether it starts out as relational SQL, NoSQL, or somewhere in between. read more

Unify Your Tests – Or Fail | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #WebPerf #Microservices

While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success. Without rethinking automated testing from the ground-up, the entire DevOps productivity gain cannot be realized. Large tech companies build their own rapid test automation that runs in minutes across functional, performance, security and other tests. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Surace, CEO of Appvance, discussed how we learn from these real-world successes and achieve a 95% time reduction in creating and running automated unified tests. Otherwise enterprises must make a tradeoff between velocity and quality. Learning from the leaders, that tradeoff does not need to be made. read more

[slides] Cloud Lock-In | @CloudExpo #PaaS #Cloud

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., advocated that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS explode much faster as there is no need to support plethora of clouds by every PaaS vendor. read more
