    Moving to the cloud is not always the right decision Image Credit: Melinda Swinford If you’ve taken the time to read any of the IT trade rags in the past year or so, you’ve seen a story that tells you how wonderful “the cloud” is and how it has become a key part of the importance of information technology. In fact, if you’ve read enough of these articles, you may be thinking that you are a bit behind the times – your company should be moving more of its applications into the cloud faster. However, it turns out that a number of companies are not making this…

    Google and Apple have always had their differences, but a new Easter egg inside Google Maps has just taken their rivalry to a whole new level. As spotted by Team Android, if you head to these coordinates with the regular Map view enabled, you’ll see Google’s iconic Android mascot taking a leak on the Apple logo. At the moment, it’s unclear who created this little piece of mischief and whether Google is even aware of its existence. It could have been made by a renegade Google employee, or a member of the public using a crowdsourced mapping tool like Map Maker. Regardless,…

    28 Aug 2015 | 10:26 am
    By Joachim Skura It's time for businesses to take recruiting into their own hands because the rewards for doing so can be huge For many years, proactive in-house recruitment efforts have been looked down upon in recruitment circles. The internal recruitment role within companies has been partially eclipsed by the work of dedicated recruitment consultants and agencies, exacerbated by the fact that in-house HR teams have enough to do without having to seek out talent. As a result, responsibility for recruiting new employees has for many years been split between internal recruitment, advertising…

  • Find unused indexes on MongoDB and TokuMX

    Miguel Angel Nieto
    21 Aug 2015 | 8:33 am
    Finding and removing unused indexes is a pretty common technique to improve overall performance of relational databases. Less indexes means faster insert and updates but also less disk space used. The usual way to do it is to log all queries’ execution plans and then get a list of those indexes that are not used. Same theory applies to MongoDB and TokuMX so in this blog post I’m going to explain how to find those.Profiling in MongoDBTo understand what profiling is you only need to think about MySQL’s slow query log, it is basically the same idea. It can be enabled with the…
  • Optimizing PXC Xtrabackup State Snapshot Transfer

    Jay Janssen
    20 Aug 2015 | 8:38 am
    State Snapshot Transfer (SST) at a glancePXC uses a protocol called State Snapshot Transfer to provision a node joining an existing cluster with all the data it needs to synchronize.  This is analogous to cloning a slave in asynchronous replication:  you take a full backup of one node and copy it to the new one, while tracking the replication position of the backup.PXC automates this process using scriptable SST methods.  The most common of these methods is the xtrabackup-v2 method which is the default in PXC 5.6.  Xtrabackup generally is more favored over other SST methods because it is…

  • Asynchronous Boundaries and Back Pressure

    28 Aug 2015 | 10:57 am
    Summary: Non-blocking back pressume is a useful way to avoid common problems at the asynchronous boundary between autonomous agents. A significant component of reactive programming is asynchronous boundary between the message sender and receiver. The problem is that the receiver might not work as fast as the sender and thus fall behind. When this happens the sender can block (blocking), the event bus can throw messages away (losiness), or the receiver can store messages (unlimited message queue). None of these are ideal. In response, a key concept from reactive systems is non-blocking back…

You don't have to consider things like surveillance-based marketing or devices that spy on us long to realize that a future that's an extrapolation of what we have now is a very real threat to personal autonomy and freedom. A key part of the answer is developing protocols that make it easy to give control to…

In Social Things, Trustworthy Spaces, and the Internet of Things, I described trustworthy spaces as abstract places where various "things" could come together to accomplish tasks that none of them could do on their own. For example, in that post I posit a scenario where a new electric car needs to work with other things in its owner's home to determine the best times to charge.

    Summary: We need to stop trying to understand REST in terms of data-centric programming paradigms. The result will be better-designed APIs. You'll often hear people explain the mainstay HTTP verbs, GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE, in terms of the venerable CRUD (create, retrieve, update, and delete) functions of persistent storage systems. Heck, I do it myself. We need to stop. In a RESTful API, the HTTP verbs are roughly analogous to the CRUD functions, but what they're acting on is quite different. CRUD functions act on data...static, stupid data. In REST, on the other hand, the verbs act on…

Marc Andreessen has famously said that "software is eating the world." Venkatesh Rao calls software, "only the third major soft technology to appear in human civilization." "So what?" you say. "I'm not in software, what do I care?" You care, or should, because the corollary to this is that your company is a software company, whether you like it or not. Software is so pervasive, so important that is has or will impact every human activity. The recent hacks of a Jeep…

The market demand for body-worn gadgets has been declining all year.” The flagship of consumer wearables is the fitness band, although the smartwatch is seeking to steal the spotlight.

  • Data Center Malinvestment?

    Jeff Clark
    27 Aug 2015 | 9:51 am
    One of the dangers of artificially low interest rates is malinvestment: money put into certain projects is misplaced because demand in that area is unsustainable or overestimated. Do data centers fall into that category? The Trouble With Malinvestment Malinvestment goes hand in hand with booms and busts. For instance, suppressed mortgage rates can lead consumers to buy more housing than they can afford, resulting in a surge in construction. That’s the boom. But when those mortgage rates rise to normal levels, demand shrinks leaving an excess supply. Prices must drop to clear the market.

    19 Aug 2015 | 1:17 pm
    Databases are like treasure chests, waiting to be cracked open. Within them, you can find critical analytics information that gives your organization the information needed to gain a competitive edge. However, if your organization uses Unisys ClearPath MCP server and its non-relational DMSII database, getting the data you need can be difficult. Most traditional BI tools only support relational databases, which means you have to find an effective data integration solution.

    Times are changing and we all need to take notice. The mainframe computing environment, with protocols dating back decades, is a new frontier of exploration for both the White Hat and the Black Hat hackers. A White Hat is an ethical hacker who seeks to expose vulnerabilities publicly so they can be addressed before they are exploited by malicious hackers. A Black Hat is a criminal hacker who hacks for illegal purposes or for notoriety. Large computing environments have been ignored by the hacker community for many years, but mainframe data now has a target on its back. The Bottom Line:…

    Java’s change in market status from a viable web technology to what it is now—undesirable legacy code—is astonishing. Oracle’s recent patch for Java’s zero-day flaw puts one more nail in the coffin.  Zero-day status is assigned to flaws that are currently being exploited by hackers, and for which there is no available fix.

A tremendously popular approach, Java was used for everything, including access to key enterprise applications—which happens to be the part of the industry I…
  • Why SSL Puts Your Organization at Risk

    Kris Lall
    28 Jul 2015 | 11:43 am
    Nothing breeds acrimony like success. Such is the case with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Originally developed by Netscape (remember Netscape?) for their web browser to encrypt communications between web browsers and servers, the SSL specification was eventually taken on and standardized by the IETF as the Transport Layer Security (TLS) specification. SSL became the de facto standard for the encryption of HTTP network communications and was quickly adopted for other network protocols, including terminal emulation protocols like TN3270. Now a victim of its own success, SSL has become a target…

But can you blame the PCI Security Council for updating the standard so quickly? With all of the recent breaches in the retail sector, an update was bound to be forthcoming.

  • Do You Need Your Ticketing System for Real-Time Incident Management?

    Sam Lewis
    27 Aug 2015 | 7:02 am
    Why Ticketing Systems? Ticketing systems serve a purpose for their users. They keep track of issues, assign items to other people, and order a large input of requests. But using ticket systems can be fraught with issues: a clunky workflow, mired in process, means that users can’t always move and adapt quickly. They have to spend some of their time updating their workflow in the ticketing system, which means less time for dealing with critical issues. They require a rigorous, structured, manual approach that can slow down work in the heat of the moment. Why NOT Ticketing Systems? While…

What we are actually seeing in the field today, however, suggests that most Enterprise companies aren’t seeing these results, and could use some tweaks to their IT Operations  management approach.  According to a recent Forrester thought leadership paper, incident resolution practices are too often tactical and reactive, and this inhibits commercial success.
