For enterprises disrupting the marketplace, technology is the key enabler
that is helping them create new business models and processes. Open source
software has played an enabler role in developing these new scalable and
high-performing systems. From the digital transformation perspective,
following four levers play an important role.
Connected – with the advent of IoT everything is getting connected. All
this data is being transmitted over mobile and fixed bandwidth networks where
the enterprises are making sense out of it leading to real-time decision
making. New service models are being created around data. E.g. Rolls Royce
aircraft engines capture data around the engine performance which can be
given as subscription to airlines for predictive maintenance. This data can
also be used to develop models for better engines. Data – All the data from
Things, device l... (more)
Cloud based services are so ubiquitous that it is almost impossible to
imagine our daily life without these. These services range from web e-mail
services like Gmail to productivity apps like Evernote to Social Networks

these services live in their own island and it is hard to go on... (more)
Consumerization is described as the trend for IT to first emerge in the

javaranch.com, describes the hierarchy of needs from the user(s) perspective.
The needs are stacked in the order of increasing engagement from the user.
A Four-Pronged Approach to Microservices Adoption
By Aravind Ajad Yarra
Enterprises have been struggling for years to develop applications that are
agile and quick to change. Microservices architecture provides a way to
address this challenge and has therefore caught the attention of enterprise
IT teams. Beyond the initial enthusiasm, proof of concepts and pilot
implementations, enterprises are struggling to adopt this architecture. In
this blog, I explain why enterprises need to consider a strategic approach to
Microservices architecture and suggest a four pronged approach to ado... (more)
Big Data has caught the fancy of each and everyone. Consumer and enterprise
world is looking to adopt the Big Data. Analysts are talking about it,
proclaiming it to the next big thing!
Below is my take on how the Big Data market space will evolve in 2012 and
years to come.
Data Analytics Service – We will start seeing SaaS vendors that will start
offering data analytics as a service (e.g., 1010data). These vendors will be
able to pull in your unstructured data and provide you standardized reports
and data services. This is very similar to the Web analytics (like Omniture)
but ac... (more)
