David Linthicum

I’m getting about one a day now, sometimes more. PR people are sharing their client’s deeply profound predictions for cloud computing in 2020, with the hope that I’ll take note. The large majority are along the lines of “Cloud computing will continue to grow in 2020,” or “Machine learning, containers, and serverless computing will still be big in 2020.” Thank you, Captain Obvious, for going out on those limbs.

Why SaaS-based AI training will be a game changer

David Linthicum

If you deal with machine learning-based systems, you know all about training data. Data must be formatted correctly and be accurate before it’s loaded into an AI model for the purpose of training the model. Say you’re creating a fraud detection engine using a popular machine learning system in a public cloud. First you create the data set used to train the model: in this case, millions of transactional records with the fraudulent transactions labeled.

Focus on Strategy, Talent and Cost to Win in the Turns

CEB IT

Business leaders will continue to face uncertainty in the future, whether geopolitical, economic, technological or regulatory. This uncertainty, or “turn,” could manifest as changes in customer expectations, a data breach, or a law redefining your product or market. Turns, in one form or another, are guaranteed. But what is not guaranteed is how an organization reacts to and prepares for them. Lead and lean into the forces of change rather than be led by them.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.
