Cloud Computing Expo: Show Reports - A Round-Up

What's being said around the blogosphere about SYS-CON's 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in NYC

"This week we exhibited at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo in NYC. I was impressed with the turnout and as usual the SYS-CON team put on a great show. More and more we are seeing the larger enterprise’s embrace cloud storage and this show was no exception. Enterprise attendees ranged from finance to pharma backgrounds all looking to better understand this new wave of technology and how it can be used to streamline operations and reduce costs."

"I spent two days at the Cloud Computing Expo in NYC this past week and want to share my thoughts on the state of the cloud. ... David Linthicum is one of the few people on the cloud computing speaking circuit who is making sense. ...Dave’s advice is the best that I have come across out there.  It is all about architecture and the cloud is just another tool in the toolbox."

"SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Boot Camp - I have to say, for a conference, this was the best session I have ever attended. Completely vendor neutral, and full of deep technical details, without the spin, of what the Cloud really is."

"Spoke at 7PM this evening, at the end of a long day of presentations at the Cloud Computing Expo. I was a little afraid of a 7PM speaking slot because I thought people would rather be at the bar rather than listen to me talk. Boy, was I wrong. Apparently, people were standing in the hallway. Had I noticed, I certainly would have rearranged furniture to get more people in - even if it meant more people sitting on the floor!"

"Customers need to be skeptical, particularly when they are considering sending critical data and applications to cloud providers, says David Snead, an attorney who spoke about legal issues related to virtualization and cloud computing at Sys-Con's Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York City last week. Companies such as Amazon do have downtime, and service-level agreements may not guarantee severe penalties, he said."

"In a tersely worded statement [released at Cloud Computing Expo] that reminds us of something coming out of a Cold War summit on a battleship, IBM and Microsoft (along with Intel and Cisco) agreed in principle to the idea that "interoperability" - IBM's desire to see different clouds work together - is as a good thing. They also said that cloud computing should have its own trade association or marketing group to work towards those ends, and that everyone should be invited."

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.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

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...
