Build security into your IoT plan or risk attack

Network World

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer some futuristic thing that’s years off from being something IT leaders need to be concerned with. The IoT era has arrived. In fact, Gartner forecasts there will be 20.4 billion connected devices globally by 2020. An alternative proof point is the fact that when I talk with people about their company's IoT plans, they don’t look at me like a deer in headlights as they did a few years ago. In fact, often the term “IoT” doesn’t even come up.

Schema Evolution Patterns

Speaker: Alex Rasmussen, CEO, Bits on Disk

If you want to make your development team squirm, ask them about database schema changes or API versioning.

3 ways the cloud and data centers work well together

David Linthicum

Will data centers will go away as the public cloud grows like crazy? Both are growing to keep up with the booming economy. But getting them to work and play well together will be a challenge. You may also recall the hybrid cloud , which was a paired private cloud and public cloud. Most in the tech field now consider hybrid cloud out of date, and instead push the concept of “hybrid IT.”

Serverless computing’s dark side: less portability for your apps

David Linthicum

According to the “ RightScale 2018 State of the Cloud ” report, serverless computing is the No. 1 growing cloud service, with a growth rate of 75 percent. This means that many enterprises are opting for the convenience of using serverless systems that abstract you from the underlying infrastructure, the servers. However, the trade-off is that applications built on serverless public cloud systems are not easily moved to other clouds. InfoWorld explains: What is multicloud?

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
