A Reality Check on 'Everyone's Moving Everything to the Cloud' A recent CIO editorial by Bernard Golden regarding the future of private cloud spurred some interesting commentary in my network. The pushback seemed to focus around the viability of the term “private cloud”. These individuals are well-respected thought-leaders in cloud with significant experience guiding senior IT executives transition to modern architectures, so I decided I’d engage them in a discussion regarding the future of self-managed infrastructure as a whole. There’s a class of individuals, myself included, whose job it is to advise and recommend direction in Enterprise IT. In this role, we live in a bubble of sorts. I believe most of us understand the realities of Enterprise IT very well, but we also have a good handle on next generation architectures, their value, and how to migrate current IT... (more)

What Will You Do with IoT? | @ThingsExpo #BigData #IoT #IIoT #M2M #API

What Will You Do with What You Learn from IoT? When the Internet of Things (IoT) started to emerge as a popular topic, I had to stop and ask myself if I was once again going to provide commentary on this emerging field.

However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don't transform now they risk becoming irrelevant when they would be equally well-off to simply modernize existing IT service... (more)

Major Paradigm Shift By @JPMorgenthal | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps #PaaS #Microservices]

Cloud Native: The Next Major Developer Paradigm Shift Every decade for the past forty years we’ve seen a major paradigm shift in software development. The next major paradigm shift for software developers—cloud native application development—is occurring now and it will require developers to once again re-think and modify their approach to developing software. In the seventies we saw the transition from assembler to third and fourth generation programming languages. This change gave rise to implicit processing based on language constructs and the use of functional notation. In t... (more)

A Conversation with Adam Bosworth

Adam Bosworth, vice president of engineering of the Frameworks Division at BEA, recently sat down with JP Morgenthal to talk about his role in WebLogic. WLDJ: Tell us about your role at BEA. Adam: Basically, I make sure that we build what's necessary for J2EE to become usable by the rest of us - on top of WebLogic Server. Whether it's building the user interface in the portal strategy, or building the overall development environment, WebLogic Workshop will make it easy for every reasonable developer to use. WLDJ: What are your primary software development interests? AB: I've spent ... (more)
