I'm sure many of you reading this Cortex are aware I also write a regular column for Forbes on digital transformation. What you don't know, however, is how the Forbes sausage comes to be made. But as it happens, a recent article caused quite a stir behind the scenes - a story in itself. Normally such a kerfuffle wouldn't be worthy of note, but in this case, there's an important lesson about digital transformation to be learned here. So let's peel back that natural pork casing and take a peek into the motley assortment of ingredients that go into such an article.

Let us therefore proceed with all due irony to list our derogations of one of the buzziest: the Internet of Things, known to aficionados and curmudgeons alike as the IoT. The IoT explosion is rather curious if you think about it, as the Internet has been with us now for nigh on two decades, and everything connected to it has always been some kind of thing.

Jason Bloomberg Joins @DevOpsSummit New York Faculty | @TheEbizWizard | [#DevOps]

Jason Bloomberg to discuss the importance of resilience, inherent flexibility, and good technical debt to the success of DevOps The DevOps Drumbeat: Reinventing the Iron Triangle The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will s... (more)
