Nominate yourself for the 2020 Enterprise Architecture Awards

InfoWorld on 25/09/2019 pm30 12:00:00

Digital transformation, innovation, and customer obsession top businesses’ strategic agendas. Enterprise architecture (EA) teams must enable these goals with the right technology roadmap and with internal operating models that can help enterprises attain their goals. EA programs have left behind their old role of centralized and largely disengaged planning and have moved pragmatically into making the vision real with a network of embedded hands-on architects.How do I know EA teams are working this way? The Forrester/InfoWorld 2019 Enterprise Architecture Award winners showed how EA played leading roles in their firms’ digital transformation efforts and had impressive results. Leadership, collaboration, business smarts, tech smarts, and an agile operating model are the hallmarks of today’s high-impact EA teams.To read this article in... Read the article

12 Pythons for every programming need

InfoWorld on 25/09/2019 pm30 12:00:00

When you choose Python for software development, you choose a large language ecosystem with a wealth of packages covering all manner of programming needs. But in addition to libraries for everything from GUI development to machine learning, you can also choose from a number of Python runtimes—and some of these runtimes may be better suited to the use case you have at hand than others.Here is a brief tour of Python distributions, from the standard implementation (CPython) to versions optimized for speed (PyPy), for special use cases (Anaconda, ActivePython), for different language runtimes (Jython, IronPython), and even for cutting-edge experimentation (PyCopy, MesaPy).To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

Nim language reaches 1.0 status

InfoWorld on 25/09/2019 am30 01:27:00

Nim, a statically-typed systems programming language that draws on concepts from languages like Python, Pascal, and Ada, has reached a 1.0 release status. Generating native dependency-free executables, Nim can compile to JavaScript, C, or C++, enabling the language to be used for back-ends and front-ends.The Nim 1.0 release marks the beginning of a stable base to build on in upcoming years, with future versions to maintain backward compatibility with code written in the current version. Nim 1.0 includes a number of improvements: A bug enabling int to be implicitly converted to range types of smaller sizes has been fixed. Inline iterators returning lent T types are now supported. uint64 is now a regular ordinal type. Thus high(uint64) compiles and yields the correct value. encodings.getCurrentEncoding now distinguishes... Read the article

Here comes .Net Core 3.0

InfoWorld on 24/09/2019 pm30 12:00:00

It’s hard to believe that .Net is nearly 18 years old; the first public release of the .Net Framework was in February 2002. Over the years it has become the foundation of much of Windows development, and with the release of .Net Core in 2014 and the formation of the .Net Foundation it has begun a move away from its proprietary roots to an open source development model that’s intended to be the basis of all .Net development.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story) Read the article

Should open source licenses fight evil?

InfoWorld on 24/09/2019 pm30 12:00:00

Open source has come under fire in recent years, with companies like MongoDB hoping to shift its very definition to include proprietary software. But it’s the more recent, and more well-intentioned, salvo that could do the most damage.Last Thursday, in response to Chef’s willingness to do business with US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), one open source developer pulled his software from Chef, causing customer systems to go down. By Friday, Chef not only fixed the outage, but also reversed its policy of doing business with ICE.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

Why a cloud computing degree makes sense

InfoWorld on 24/09/2019 pm30 12:00:00

I used to teach computer science as an adjunct at Northern Virginia Community College back in my 20s. I learned more teaching others than I ever did being taught. My focus was on the pragmatic—what students could sell in the labor marketplace. Recently the governor of Virginia, my home state, announced a cloud computing associate degree that will be offered at NVCC. This is in conjunction with AWS and expected to be offered at other state-run colleges as well.[ What is cloud computing?

Offloading Hybrid Cloud Management for Strategic Advantage

InfoWorld on 23/09/2019 pm30 22:56:00

Enterprises are increasingly turning to hybrid cloud environments as offering the best of two worlds – joining the public cloud advantages of scalable, pay-as-you-go infrastructure with private cloud’s control and predictability. This approach requires placing workloads where they’ll yield the greatest benefit for the business, whether that means modernizing software to enhance the customer experience or securing access to mission-critical applications and data.To remain competitive, organizations are undergoing a transformation – of their IT environments, their procurement routines, their development and operations practices, and, ultimately, their business processes and culture. The changes required are unique to each enterprise, but the gains to be made are too compelling to ignore: greater IT cost efficiency, business agility and resilience.To read this article...
