Understanding Cloud Complexities and Avoiding "Cloud Fatigue" We're seeing an emerging trend in the cloud computing world. I've been referring to it as cloud fatigue, but it's more commonly known as repatriation, or moving workloads from the cloud back to on-prem locations. According to a recent 451 Research report, over 21 percent of organizations have plans to pull back from the cloud and return to an on-prem infrastructure in 2017. Considering the vast growth of cloud adoption over the last several years, what's behind this trend? We believe cloud fatigue is the result of deployments going awry. It usually happens when companies quickly adopt one of the leading public cloud platforms (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, etc.) because they're attracted to the promises of ease-of-use, flexibility and low computing costs. What happens next depends on a myriad of f... (more)

Data Lake and APIs | @CloudExpo #API #AI #ML #DX #CloudNative #DataLake

The Omnipresent World of APIs These days, APIs have become an integral part of the digital transformation journey for all enterprises. Every digital innovation story is connected to APIs . But have you ever pondered over to know what are the source of these APIs? Let me explain - APIs sources can be varied, internal or external, solving different purposes, but mostly categorized into the following two categories: Data lakes is a term used to represent disconnected but relevant data that are used by various business units within an enterprise.  APIs are created as the easy access points for these siloed data lakes. These days, organizations put in  conscious efforts in designing meaningful and pragmatic APIs for all the apps that get developed internally.  API-First or API Driven Development, where APIs are the first app artifacts to be generated, are adapted by ent...

The What, Why, and How of APIs | @DevOpsSummit #API #DevOps #WebPerf

The What, Why, and How of APIs By Kameerath Kareem For over a decade, Application Programming Interface or APIs have been used to exchange data between multiple platforms. From social media to news and media sites, most websites depend on APIs to provide a dynamic and real-time digital experience. APIs have made its way into almost every device and service available today and it continues to spur innovations in every field of technology. There are multiple programming languages used to build and run applications in the online world. And just like every other language, there is always the need for an interpreter when trying to communicate with someone who doesn’t speak the same language as you.  This is where APIs come into play, APIs act like the interpreter helping different independent services interact and interpret the data shared with each other. APIs Everywhe... (more)

Cloud Migration and #DevOps | @CloudExpo #CloudNative #Serverless #AI #DX

Good Migrations: Five Steps to Successful Cloud Migration By Laura Winkenbach Unless you've been living in a cave for the last decade, you've seen cloud computing spread like fire across every industry. You also probably know that the cloud plays a pivotal role when it comes to digital transformation. Whether "the app is the business" is a well-worn subject or not, it doesn't change the fact that companies are spinning up their apps faster because they can scale, test, and optimize them in real production environments in the cloud. But, like any technology, the cloud isn't perfect. If it isn't configured specifically to your application and business needs, you can find yourself dealing with performance issues, unhappy users, and one splitting headache. On the flip side, developing a successful cloud migration strategy can be a rewarding experience that reverberates ... (more)

[session] Are Your Business Apps Cloud-Ready? | @CloudExpo @CASTHighlight #DX #API #Cloud

Are Your Business Apps Cloud-Ready? The "Digital Era" is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most of the time we are dealing with complex portfolios, many including hundreds of legacy applications. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, JP Ascenci, a solution specialist at CAST Highlight, will describe how Application Portfolio Analysis assists to baseline, quality and engage with cloud migration.
