Our CX Recipe for Success: Complete with Ingredient List and Substitutions!

If you were to spend any time with me in the kitchen, you would often find me searching out substitutions for ingredients that I don’t have on hand or have to drive 100 miles to find. I don’t want to abandon the recipe, so I substitute instead. I find that in the world of internal government IT systems, recipes for success are hard to come by. So, what do I do? I substitute!MaksimVasic/iStock/Thinkstock Part of good substitution includes seeking out equivalents that will perform the same role. For example, sour milk or buttermilk are used in a recipe for a specific function. You can’t just use fresh milk and extra butter. You need to add vinegar to the fresh milk first so the chemistry comes out right.Below is an excerpt from a DigitalGov post by Martha Dorris called What is a “Customer Centric” Culture?. It’s a great ‘recipe’, but I want employees to enjoy this ‘dish’ as much as their customers will, which means I need to make a substitution. As you read the excerpt, I want you to men…

Internet of Things and Big Data – Who Owns All the Data? | @ThingsExpo #IoT

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you provide answers to for protecting your information on these systems), to information about your behavior, your interests (websites visited, internet search topics). While possibly concerning from a privacy perspective, you had some level of control. For the backend systems involved, the volume and variety of the data was a manageable situation. The tradeoff between privacy and convenience is something we, for the most part, found acceptable. read more

[session] Take Full Advantage of Everything Azure By @HanuSoftware | @CloudExpo #Cloud

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating to the cloud is a simple affair – just call up a cloud provider and your wishes come true. The reality is quite different, however, as enterprises struggle with a wide variety of migration issues, from security to overtaxed IT teams and everything in-between. read more

[session] A Better Approach to Cloud Security By @AlertLogic | @CloudExpo #Cloud

How will your company move to the cloud while ensuring a solid security posture? Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony Corp, Anthem and the Office of Personnel Management experienced data breaches through malware and other targeted attacks. read more

Middleware Solutions | @CloudExpo #DataCenter #BigData #M2M #IoT #API

While there has been much ado about interoperability, there are still no real solutions, same as last year and the year before that. The large EHR vendors who continue to dominate the market still maintain that interoperability is all but solved, still can't connect EHRs across the continuum causing frustration by providers and a disservice to patients. The ONC pays lip service to the problem, but that is about it. It is time for the healthcare industry to consider alternatives like middleware which has been proven in other industries such as finance, retail and hospitality. read more

DevOps Managers? | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #IoT #ContinuousIntegration

My personal view is NO. It needs DevOps for sure, but not Devops Managers. There is a simple explanation and a more well defined, elaborate explanation to this question though. The simple explanation first. A manager's role needs to be associated with some outcome. A Project Manager - is responsible for the outcome of successful project, a Business Manager - is responsible for the outcome of a growing and profitable business, a Service Manager - is responsible for delivering improved service, etc. DevOps is not an outcome. It's a means to an end - that end being continuous delivery. read more

Big Data Journey | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

I love EMC World (though I can’t say the same about Las Vega$). I get an opportunity to talk to customers who are at the dirty and grimy frontline of trying to derive value from all of this Big Data hoopla. They teach me tons! One theme that came up several times in our conversations was the following: “I can’t get the Business to engage in an envisioning type of engagement. We have lost their trust.

Container Security By @CloudRaxak | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Docker #Microservices

Many banks and financial institutions are experimenting with containers in development environments, but when will they move into production? Containers are seen as the key to achieving the ultimate in information technology flexibility and agility. Containers work on both public and private clouds, and make it easy to build and deploy applications. The challenge for regulated industries is the cost and complexity of container security compliance. VM security compliance is already challenging, and containers increase the problem exponentially. Simplifying and automating security compliance will be critical to achieving the high ROI expected from containers. read more
