"Open analytics" is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark. Cloud APIs are commonly designed to support application integration representing a disconnect with the analytics ecosystem. These combined trends create significant demand for a "bring-your-own-analytics" (BYOA) ca... (more)

Legacy Modernization and Cloud | @CloudExpo #API #CloudNative #Agile #DX

Legacy Modernization: Look to the Cloud and Open Systems By Craig Marble, Sr. Director, Legacy Modernization Services, Astadia If you are thinking about moving applications off a mainframe and over to open systems and the cloud, consider these guidelines to prioritize what to move and what to eliminate. On the surface, mainframe architecture seems relatively simple: A centrally located computer processes data through an input/output subsystem and stores its computations in memory. At the other end of the mainframe are printers and terminals that communicate with the mainframe through protocols. For all of its apparent simplicity, mainframe architecture can be extraordinarily complex. Mainframes process thousands of transactions per second and require an extensive infrastructure to house and maintain them. The hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of terminals (think of a ban... (more)

Five Reasons to Choose a Private Cloud

As enterprise interest in cloud computing offerings and concepts continues to increase, the number of solutions in both the public and private cloud spaces increases as well. There's been much debate over public versus private cloud, even to the point of debating whether there can be such a thing as a private cloud. I'm not here to debate the latter (in my opinion the location of the service has nothing to do with whether or not it is a cloud), but rather I want to take a look into why consumers would choose private clouds over their public counterparts. During the last several months, Ive been lucky enough to chat with numerous enterprise users about their thoughts on cloud computing. Quite a few of these users are already utilizing the cloud on some level, and they are doing this by leveraging both public and private clouds. In my experience, enterprises have bee... (more)

Microsoft Open Source Chief Goes to the Cloud

Cloud Computing on Ulitzer Sam Ramji, Microsoft’s open source defector, whose imminent departure from the company became widely known when Microsoft set up its own CodePlex open source foundation a few weeks ago, has turned up at five-year-old cloud start-up Sonoa Systems, where he will head product strategy and business development. Sonoa, which has little open source exposure so far, does something called ServiceNet, which is supposed to set security and scaling policies for cloud-based services, acting as a proxy server between the service provider and the consumer. It says it provides the visibility, management and governance required to make cloud services and APIs as robust, compliant and scalable as internal on-premise applications. It uses a network-router design that supports the high concurrency required by the cloud with extremely low latency. The stuf... (more)
