I'm going to cry tonight, long and hard. I'll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo's headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn't called Cloud Expo then, of course - it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn't have a job there, or even a job offer. He was simply a fan of the technology and the show. So when his wife, a Danish diplomat, was relocated to the UN in New York, Jeremy literally sprang into action and made himself at home at the show's office. At the time, I'd been advising the owners about their direction and operations, but wanted to hedge my bets and keep my own research company active; I didn't want to jump into the ... (more)

Cloud Expo Drives IT | @CloudExpo @IoT2040 #IoT #APM #DevOps #BigData

Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey from Gartner shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.

The Case for Cloud Foundry

Cloud computing is emerging to solve numerous enterprise IT problems at organizations of all sizes, and Cloud Foundry has emerged as a leading Platform-­as-­a-­Service (PaaS) to develop and launch applications in their private enterprise clouds. Cloud Foundry is open­-source software, and available in "plain vanilla" code from the Cloud Foundry Foundation. It is also available in proprietary versions from a few vendors. However, it's important to understand that Cloud Foundry is not owned by a single, proprietary provider, and its availability is not limited to the small number... (more)

A Recap of @CloudExpo New York | @IoT2040 #IoT #ML #BigData #DevOps

Cloud Expo 2016 New York at the Javits Center New York was characterized by increased attendance and a new focus on operations. These were both encouraging signs for all involved in Cloud Computing and all that it touches. As Conference Chair, I work with the Cloud Expo team to structure three keynotes, numerous general sessions, and more than 150 breakout sessions along 10 tracks. Our job is to balance the state of enterprise IT today with the trends that will be commonplace tomorrow. Mobile Computing, Big Data and Analytics, the Internet of Things, Platforms and Microservice... (more)

Gates Foundation & Our IoT 2040: Nice Contrast

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently identified four keys areas in which to focus for the next 15 years: Health, Farming, Banking, and Education. Bill himself holds forth on a regular basis about the challenges facing many billions of people in the world, particularly in Africa, as well as the opportunities to save lives and change lives. He does not seem naïve about the enormity of the challenges, and does not offer technology as a simple panacea to what ails the world. He also seems committed to respecting national sovereignty in implementing programs, difficult as t... (more)
