Our guest on the podcast this week is Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx and author of The Agile Architecture Revolution. We discuss how modern enterprises should integrate new technology trends including cloud, big data, and DevOps, with their legacy tools and processes. Agile companies are putting their IT puzzles together to deliver value and ultimately create more successful organizations.
Why won't IT relinquish their control to managed service providers? Our guest on the podcast this week is Mike Kavis, VP and Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners. We discuss how increased complexity within cloud, mobile, and big data technology is driving the need for managed service providers.
The vast amounts of data that companies are collecting, the continuous decrease of storage costs, and the technological advancements with cloud computing have made big data initiatives much more feasible than past data warehousing initiatives. Unfortunately for many companies, the complexities with big data technologies have been challenging because they lack the in-house skills.
During the second quarter of 2014 we saw the rise of Docker as well as a few providers pushing harder to the cloud, the government finally beginning to make significant movement to the cloud, and the IaaS market looking less and less like a single provider’s domain. On the database side we saw Google, the inventor of MapReduce, move in new directions and the traditional database market continuing to die the death of a thousand cuts.
We often watch new positions sprout up around emerging technology. These days, we see new titles such as the chief cloud officer, and other titles that seem just as trendy. However, the strategic use of data within many enterprises led those in charge to assign data management responsibility to one person; the chief data officer or CDO.
