Spending More on Cloud for Fun and Profit
Scott Sanchez, Director of Strategy, Rackspace
15 years ago, you spent $50 a month on a cell phone, only a few of your employees had them, and calls cost 20 cents a minute. You worked hard to restrict or even shrink your cell phone bills each month, because it was a luxury that didn't have a meaningful impact on your business back then. Today, everyone carries a smartphone that does 1000x more than the cell phones of the past, and instead of $50 it costs you $150 despite "units" (minutes) costing next to nothing now. You're happy to spend that money because it makes your business move faster, do more, and be more profitable as a result.

Businesses need to think about cloud in the same way. The past 15 years of IT have all been about how to spend less, consolidate and reduce budgets. Cloud can bring the cost per "unit" down drastically from what virtualization or dedicated machines cost just a few years ago, but the self service and automation that it brings allows your business to move faster and achieve the innovation levels you always dream about. Imagine going from idea to production in 30 minutes ten years ago? Today that's possible with cloud computing, and it means happier product and development teams, and bigger profits for the business as a result.

In this talk, Scott Sanchez, Director of Strategy at Rackspace will explore how you should be thinking about cloud spending, organizing your teams for success, and what you can accomplish when you take the IT budget reduction hat off and focus on moving faster instead of spending less

CAPEX VS OPEX and how that drives innovation
Michael Gendron, Professor MIS, Central Connecticut State University
Businesses regularly look at measurements to make decisions. These include significant financial concepts and measures to help organizations understand how infrastructure can deliver economic benefit. Financial measures provide a "rear view mirror" of what has already happened in your organization. When taken over time and correlated with actions by your organization these measurements can be used to assess the impact of these actions. Financial measurements can also be used as "looking forward" to aid in the comparison of options estimating some of the inputs to the measurements. These include things like total cost of ownership (operation), and CAPEX Vs. OPEX, which will be covered in this presentation.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
