Essential Issues, Such as Licensing and Billing, in the Cloud Will Make or Break ISV Success

The new frontier of the Cloud hasn't been designed to accommodate software vendors who want their products to work in the cloud, says JNBridge's Wayne Citrin

DENVER, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

    Who:      Wayne Citrin
              CTO
              JNBridge
              (www.jnbridge.com)

               Citrin is Chief Technology Officer at JNBridge. He is the
               architect of JNBridge Pro, and has been devoted to Java and
               .NET interoperability issues since .NET's beta days, more than
               nine years ago. Prior to co-founding JNBridge, Citrin was a
               leading researcher in programming languages and compilers, and
               was on the Computer Engineering faculty at the University of
               Colorado, Boulder. He was a researcher at IBM's research lab in
               Zurich, Switzerland and has a Ph.D. from the University of
               California, Berkeley, in Computer Science. He has given
               presentations at JavaOne, Microsoft's TechEd and TechReady, and
               numerous academic and technical conferences.

    What:     ISVs and the Cloud
               If you ask most people how software vendors can move into the
               cloud, they will say that the vendor should take their
               traditional products, put them in the cloud, and offer them as
               services. But what about other software vendors who create
               components that other developers incorporate into their own
               programs? In most cases, offering the component as a service
               doesn't make sense.

               The main challenge to running components in Cloud-based
               programs has to do with essential issues, like licensing and
               billing. Windows Azure has absolutely no provision for third-
               party licensing and billing. It's a chicken-and-egg problem.
               If Microsoft is serious about its software partners producing
               for Azure (and not just end-user customers creating custom
               applications), Microsoft will have to jump-start the market by
               offering their own billing mechanism.

               One would think that barriers to entry wouldn't be there, and
               that Cloud providers would do all they could to encourage
               software vendors to help settle this new frontier. Without a
               robust partner community for both Azure and Amazon Web
               Services, Cloud adoption will be that much slower for everyone.

               The industry needs interoperability solutions for IT
               organizations that need to integrate Java and Microsoft .NET
               applications running in the Cloud - especially as a high-
               performance alternative to existing Web services protocols. The
               vision of Cloud interoperability should be any object, on any
               platform, in any language, anywhere, and at any time. Solutions
               such as this are needed because existing web services protocols
               are too slow for IT organizations trying to meet demanding
               service level agreements frequently associated with Cloud
    How:       computing, Citrin says.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
