IDG Contributor Network: Linux containers: the whys, wherefors, and what’s next

InfoWorld 20h et 45min ago

Linux containers are the best thing since sliced bread! Forget everything you’ve ever learned about developing applications and focus on Linux containers instead! Linux containers are the solution to every application development and delivery problem!Amid all the Linux container hype these days, you’re likely—and rightly—casting a suspicious eye on the model. No, Linux container technology doesn’t make sense in all situations (despite what you may be hearing), but there are a great many use cases for which container technology does make perfect sense. The trick is to know when containers are well suited to the task at hand, and in what context.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

MongoDB will support multidocument ACID transactions

InfoWorld 23h et 40min ago

MongoDB will add multidocument ACID transactions support to its NoSQL database of the same name. Multidocument ACID transactions support has been the most-requested feature sought for MongoDB, said Seong Park, MongoDB’s vice president of strategy and product marketing.Multidocument support is planned for MongoDB 4.0, which is due this summer and reached beta stage this week. ACID transactions already have been supported at the document level in the database; now they can be done across documents as well as across collections within MongoDB. Collections in MongoDB are analogous to a table in a relational database.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

Rethinking cloud ROI: Come for cost savings but stay for agility

InfoWorld on 16/02/2018 pm28 12:00:00

Companies are moving away from the traditional operations-oriented ROI model, and now look toward agility as the core metric to determine value. That’s clear in a new report called “How Enterprises Are Calculating Cloud ROI—And Why Some Enterprises Are Moving Ahead Without It,” from ISACA.Although this is new to many enterprises and analysis firms, it’s not new to me.  I’ve written many blog posts since 2011 about the reasons to use business agility as a primary metric for calculating the real cloud ROI. It wasn’t just me, of course: Clearly the cloud experts were talking about agility and ROI. But enterprises were still focused on ops costs and capital cost avoidance as the primary metric.To read this article in full, please click... Read the article

A quick-and-dirty way to predict human behavior

InfoWorld on 16/02/2018 pm28 12:00:00

Machine learning and AI technologies are everywhere. One of the top uses is to predict human behavior.Luckily, people are creatures of habit. Moreover, when given the freedom to do anything they want, most people will do what everyone else is doing (I’m paraphrasing a badly remembered quote). That makes is kind of easy to predict what people will do next, at least statistically.[ Get started with machine learning: What is machine learning? Software derived from data, explained • How to get started with machine learning • Machine learning skills for software engineers. ] Imagine you go to a website and start rating things.

IDG Contributor Network: Building trust in machine learning and AI

InfoWorld on 15/02/2018 pm28 20:14:00

Many machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) systems lack the ability to explain how they work and make decisions—and this is a major trust inhibitor.They can find patterns in data that elude us, patterns that might reveal important relationships that improve the accuracy of the algorithm. They can recover patterns and relationships that we as human beings want to ignore. But they can just as easily fail to discover important relationships and produce bad recommendations, even dangerous ones.A well-known example of the latter involved research to see whether machine learning could guide the treatment of pneumonia patients. The team was trying to predict the risk of complications in pneumonia patients where low-risk patients could receive outpatient treatment. A rule-based machine... Read the article

IDG Contributor Network: Designing a latency-free enterprise

InfoWorld on 15/02/2018 pm28 17:24:00

In an era of constant connectivity, consumer expectations of businesses run high. Latency—the delay inherent between a desire and pursuant request for information and its ultimate return—creates frustration, inhibits success and can impact customer experiences and ultimately customer satisfaction. Long story short, we live in a real-time world and no one wants to wait. Latency is a source of friction.If I can post a photo, search for a flight, watch live sports, or get real-time stock portfolio updates instantly on my phone, why can’t I do the same in my day-to-day business dealings?Enterprises constantly straddle the line between deploying innovative approaches and carrying forward processes that drove historical success. Across companies and industries, digital transformation initiatives aim for faster business... Read the article

Google Cloud Platform services guide: The right tools for the job

InfoWorld on 15/02/2018 pm28 12:00:00

Launched in 2011, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) has had to do some catching up to market leader Amazon Web Services (AWS), its most direct competitor as a purer cloud play. But Google had no experience servicing large enterprise IT, and so has spent several years playing catchup.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story) Read the article

BrandPost: Simplifying Hybrid IT for a Successful Digital Transformation

InfoWorld on 15/02/2018 pm28 12:00:00

By Gary Thome, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for the Software-Defined and Cloud Group at Hewlett Packard Enterprise One size fits all was never a good idea for consumers buying clothing, and it certainly doesn’t work well for purchasing IT. That’s because every business is different. Each enterprise has unique business processes, security concerns, customer demands, and financial limitations. Because of these differences, enterprises worldwide are turning to a better IT strategy — hybrid IT.Hybrid IT complexity slows digital transformationHybrid IT gives enterprises more options, letting them choose public cloud, private cloud, on-premises solutions – or a combination of all three. It also lets them blend CapEx, OpEx, as-a-service, and pay-per-use consumption models.To read this article in full, please click... Read the article

Microsoft’s Blazor project runs .Net in the browser

InfoWorld on 15/02/2018 pm28 12:00:00

In what could be a turning point for web development, Microsoft’s ASP.Net team has launched an experimental web UI framework, called Blazor, that runs .Net in the browser via the WebAssembly portable code format.Blazor is intended to simplify the building of fast, single-page .Net browser apps. While Blazor does use web technologies such as CSS and HTML, it uses the C# language and the Razor syntax instead of JavaScript to build a composable web UI. By providing a size- and load-time-efficient format for compilation to the web, WebAssembly lets .Net be run in the browser. Normal .Net assemblies run through a WebAssembly-based runtime. WebAsembly is supported by all major browsers and  lets compiled code run at native speeds.To read this article... Read the article
