You could tell by the din that the RSA Conference in San Francisco this week is the largest enterprise IT security confab in the world. The fact that several prominent breaches over the last year have shaken the C-suite out of its ostrichlike complacency clearly turned the volume up on this show all the way to eleven. So now money seems to be flowing into IT security like never before, adding to the commotion. The big question: with all this security gear from the many hundreds of vendors exhibiting at the conference, each trying to get their message heard above the clamor, why do the hackers appear to be winning? Clearly, tools aren’t enough – even when they’re arguably better than ever. Regardless, the RSA Conference is largely about the tools and technologies – where each tool addresses some corner of the security sphere. Here are my picks for some of the most in... (more)

DevOps Revolution? By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Digital Revolution or DevOps Revolution? How about Agile Architecture? I’ve been writing about Agile Architecture for years – and in fact, I believe it is such a fundamental change in the way businesses deliver value that I named by 2013 book The Agile Architecture Revolution. And yet, revolution is one of those words that has long since reached buzzword status. There seem to be revolutions all around us, after all. The Digital Revolution. The DevOps Revolution. Perhaps you can think of more: the Big Data Revolution, perhaps? Or cognitive computing, or software-defined everything... (more)

Innovation Resonance By @TheEbizWizard | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Innovation Resonance on the Exponential Express In my last Cortex newsletter I discussed the exponential growth pattern technology innovation always seems to follow, what Ray Kurzweil calls the law of accelerating returns. I asked why such exponential patterns appear so ubiquitous – even extending beyond human endeavor to growth patterns in the natural world – and the answer was that groups of people are complex adaptive systems, and the self-organization of such systems can lead to the emergence of exponential growth patterns. Armed with this exciting new perspective on rapid i... (more)

SOA Architecture: Enabler of the Digital World By @TheEbizWizard | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an approach for abstracting enterprise software capabilities as reusable services in order to support more flexible business processes and ideally, more agile organizations. SOA was one of the hottest topics in information technology (IT) back offices and enterprise vendor marketing departments for a number of years back in the 2000s. However, in retrospect the original promise of SOA was largely unrealized at that time. Vendors used the approach to sell middleware, which led to expensive and difficult implementations. The architectural focus... (more)

Compuware May Have a Future After Buyout

Compuware May Have a Future After Its Leveraged Buyout Finance experts say the continued profits from Compuware’s mainframe business will be key to paying off the debt from the company’s $2.4-billion buyout. A business plan based on giant mainframes might seem precarious and antiquated in today’s era of cloud computing and wearable devices. But industry experts note that predictions of an imminent Death of the Mainframe have been coming for decades and were always proven wrong. Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, an IT consulting firm, said mainframe computers are still heav... (more)
