There Will Be Cyberwar: How The Move To Network-Centric War Fighting Has Set The Stage by Richard Stiennon


With new technology, come new problems. Oft times, with the increasing demand for the latest and greatest tech, security is more of an after thought. What has been a consistent theme is developing the next best technology, and then figuring out how to protect it.

The key cloud trends for the next few years

David Linthicum

AWS Re:Invent has become the must-attend cloud show for everyone focused on Amazon Web Services -- and an important show even for organizations that use other cloud platforms. It’s no surprise that the Re:Invent event, scheduled for Oct. 6-9, sold out again this year. The trends over the last several years have been around the adoption of cloud, the boom in building new cloud services, such as high-performance storage, supercomputers on demand, and new ways of storing and processing data.

Data Analytics in the Cloud for Developers and Founders

Speaker: Javier Ramírez, Senior AWS Developer Advocate, AWS

You have lots of data, and you are probably thinking of using the cloud to analyze it. But how will you move data into the cloud? In which format? How will you validate and prepare the data? What about streaming data? Can data scientists discover and use the data? Can business people create reports via drag and drop? Can operations monitor what’s going on? Will the data lake scale when you have twice as much data? Is your data secure? In this session, we address common pitfalls of building data lakes and show how AWS can help you manage data and analytics more efficiently.

Integrate now: The cloud hates silos

David Linthicum

"Complete integration" means all systems that collect and store information can share data with other systems that collect and store information. This concept has been around since we began playing the data integration game back in the 1990s. It's such an important concept that I wrote three books about it. However, we're nowhere near where we should be.
