Articles & Feature Stories
Everyone is talking about Big Data, and you've implemented it to bring a competitive advantage to your company, but now what? The truth is much of that data has some sort of time and geospatial location aspect to it. Whether it be the timestamps of a temperature sensor reading or the locations of users hitting your site with their mobile phones, you have geotemporal elements in your data. You can easily calculate the average temperature from yesterday or how many people connected from a state, but there is so much more valuable information locked inside that data if you just ask the right questions.
IT departments are experiencing storage capacity needs doubling every 12-18 months, 50x the amount of information and 75x the number of files. IT managers are dealing with growing constraints on space, power and costs to manage their data center infrastructure. Intel is helping businesses and users realize the benefits of cloud computing technology by working to develop open standards that operate across disparate IT infrastructures and by delivering cloud-based architectures that enable federated, automated and client-aware cloud services.

Today’s end users are always connected, and mobile and social apps have given them the expectation of immediate gratification. Why should enterprise apps be any different? What good is Big Data and real-time computing if you can’t broadcast data to all your end users in milliseconds? In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Todd Greene, CEO and co-founder of PubNub, will discuss how companies are using real-time cloud infrastructure to deliver new kinds of killer apps to users. This broad reaching topic will illustrate how the cloud is powering real-time apps across a wide range of industries, including real-time analytics, advertising, massive scale audience participation, linking commerce with presence, and business collaboration that enables live participation and the ability for instant decision-making. Whether you build or support b2b or b2c apps, it’s likely that your...
As rumored last week, Salesforce.com Monday said it’s going to buy Buddy Media for roughly $689 million in cash and stock. Buddy Media lets marketers manage their presence on social sites like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube. They can publish content, place social advertising, measure the effectiveness of their social media marketing programs, determine which content is driving the most engagements, test different strategies and isolate the campaigns delivering the best ROI. Salesforce already owns Radian6, a so-called social media listening platform, and will merge the two platforms together in its Marketing Cloud so it can offer the entire social marketing lifecycle.
One of the most widely asked questions about Big Data today is, “How do we get valuable analytics from Big Data?” Or, how do we get the prize? As data continues to grow exponentially, so does the variety of data (structured and unstructured) coming from humans, machines and applications. In order to pull valuable information from it all, proper data gathering is critical, and the output of that data needs to be timely and accurate, with a flexible method of delivery. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to maintain quality and security of data input and feeds on such a grand scale, and the result is less valuable output. Security and proper movement of data are key to ensuring accurate, valuable analytics.
The average business in 2012 will double its amount of data, with more than half of that increase occurring within the cloud. Aggregation of data is no longer the competitive lever in itself, but rather the distribution and commercialization of data across multiple platforms. In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Drew Bartkiewicz, a data economist, will analyze the massive intersection of Big Data Economics and Managed APIs as a way for Cloud and Mobile ROIs to be realized, understood, and predicted. He will discuss what "the market of APIs" means for your business and what it takes to compete in Big Data distribution.
On June 12, 2012, between 6:20 – 7:05 pm, FortressITX CEO Jason Silverglate will host a technical presentation entitled “Leverage Cloud Technology to Power Your Office,” at the 10th International Cloud Expo in New York City.

The combined effect of trends in the consumerization of IT services, BYOD policies and mobile work forces are having transforming effects on both Enterprise storage administrators and service providers alike. In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Brian Olson, Cloud Business Development Manager for EMC's Atmos, will explore these dynamics more closely and include real-world examples of how scale-out cloud storage and programmable APIs can not only help deliver new next-generation custom apps faster, but also provide storage as a service for new use cases.

Cloud computing is becoming one of the next industry buzz words. It joins the ranks of terms including: grid computing, utility computing, virtualization, clustering, etc. Cloud computing overlaps some of the concepts of distributed, grid and utility computing, however it does have its own meaning if contextually used correctly. The conceptual overlap is partly due to technology changes, usages and implementations over the years. Trends in usage of the terms from Google searches shows Cloud Computing is a relatively new term introduced in the past year. There has also been a decline in general interest of Grid, Utility and Distributed computing. Likely they will be around in usage for quit a while to come. But Cloud computing has become the new buzz word driven largely by marketing and service offerings from big corporate players like Google, IBM and Amazon.

Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive, Hbase, Lucene, Solr? The only thing growing faster than enterprise data these days is the landscape of big data tools. These tools, which are designed to help organizations turn big data into opportunities, are gaining deeper insight into massive volumes of information. A recent Gartner report predicts that enterprise data will increase by 650% over the next five years, which means that the time is now for IT decision makers to determine which big data tools are the best - and most cost-effective - for their organization.
