Piston to Field an OpenStack to Play With

Piston Cloud is about to release Airframe, a cut-down version of its Piston Enterprise OpenStack platform built so business users have a free way to evaluate and get comfortable with OpenStack in a pre-production environment. It's supposed to be ideal in pilot deployments, proof of concept and lab environments. The bare-metal cloud management platform is said to install in less than 10 minutes - which, if true, is probably remarkable - and deliver all the core OpenStack services including compute, storage, networking and cloud management. The company says it was designed to fill the gap between the OpenStack framework and Piston Enterprise OpenStack, its production-ready and supported OpenStack distribution. Evidently before Airframe, it wasn't possible to evaluate all of the core OpenStack services without installing and configuring several different systems. Wi... (more)

How JSON and Big Data Will Shape the Internet of Things

The catchphrase "Internet of Things" may seem like a relatively new term, but in reality has been around since the late ‘90s, when there was a desire to more efficiently track the flow of goods for supply chain purposes. The enabling technology was RFID which made it possible to report on stock levels and inventory in real-time. These days, the term "Internet of Things" has a much broader meaning than just supply chain technology. In the many years that have passed, big data and mobile technology have grown by leaps and bounds. This means that it is possible to crunch large amounts of sensor data and deliver context-relevant information to users on their smartphones. As a consequence, just about any physical object out there can be measured as long as there are sensors that can transmit this information. This has huge implications for global economic growth, and co... (more)

Personal Branding Checklist

This is a checklist of items you need for an all-encompassing personal branding strategy. Personal branding is the process of marketing and selling yourself as a brand in order to gain success in business. Personal branding is a continual process just as knowing yourself is a continual process. As you grow, so does your brand. The need for personal branding arises from the fact that globalization has increased competition in the workplace. As the wheat is separated from the chaff, if you are left standing, you are left standing with others of good caliber. The playing field is now that much more challenging since your competition is as good as, or better, than you. To paraphrase David Samuel, the bloke who got me into personal branding after I saw him speak a few years ago; he spoke about of why you need personal branding. His audience was a group from a large teleco... (more)

Web 2.0 Platform for Mobile Devices Released by Canoo

Canoo has just released UltraLightClient (ULC) Mobile, aimed at facilitating development of Enterprise Web 2.0 applications with a desktop user experience that will run on both Java SE and Java ME clients. ULC is a Java library for web user interface development, bridging the gap between Java Swing and a server-side architecture. It allows Java developers, says Canoo, to develop "mission-critical Enterprise Web 2.0 applications with a rich and responsive user interface using proven Java technology both on the client and on the server." UltraLightClient-based applications can be deployed in a J2EE container, as a portlet, or stand-alone without changing the code. On the client, a standard JRE from 1.4 upwards is all that is required. The new product, ULC Mobile, extends the deployment options to mobile devices that run with the Windows CE operating system.

Web 3.0 and the Age of Intelligence

Twitter: It’s Not Just About Lunch

A recent Sprint commercial about the “Now Network” noted that 26% of viewers had no idea what “twittering on Twitter” means. Yet, it’s clear that Twitter awareness is growing by leaps and bounds. Of course, this doesn’t mean opinions about Twitter are all positive. Many still hold the view expressed in this Twouble with Twitters video. As well, as Steven Johnson stated in his favorable Time magazine piece, “The one thing you can say for certain about Twitter is that it makes a terrible first impression… It's not as if we were all… saying, ‘If only there were a technology that would allow me to send a message to my 50 friends, alerting them in real time about my choice of breakfast cereal.’"  In fact, when I first started using Twitter, I wondered, to borrow words from Andy Warhol, if Twitter was not just a way to become more “deeply superficial.” All that is chang...
