As the industry focus has been shifting from SOA to Cloud Computing, it becomes clear that we should leverage what we have accomplished in the SOA endeavor in the last decade. More importantly we ought to make full of the lessons learned in the SOA work to ensure that we don't repeat the inefficient routes and fall into the pitfalls and overhypes. A pragmatic approach is to pursue service-oriented cloud computing. Please contact Tony Shan (tonycshan@gmail.com) for more info. ... (more)

Big Data Cloudified

Big Data is concerned with size, type, and speed, characterized as Volume, Variety, and Velocity (3V). The key is the effective processing of large-scale data to obtain correlation and insights in a context-aware manner. On the other hand, Cloud Computing is literally about everything in the format of a service, such as Software-, Infrastructure-, and Platform-as-Service (SIP). It is intriguing to explore the synergy between Big Data and Cloud to see how SIP meets 3V. Interestingly, senior analyst Daniel Ives shares the similar thoughts in a recent Business and Application Softwa... (more)

Taxonomy of Big Data Stores

Nontraditional databases have grown tremendously in the past few years. Now we have literally a few hundred Big Data stores and more are coming. The upside is that all of these drive innovations and lower the cost for customers. The downside is that it is easy for an end-user to get swamped with so many choices and sometimes become lost. It is important to classify these Big Data stores in such a way that one can sort them out and find the best match swiftly in the selection process. A matrix is developed to group various options available in the market. It has 2 dimensions: Hori... (more)

Big Data Redefined By @TonyShan | @CloudExpo [#BigData]

Big Data is a loose term for the collection, storage, processing, and sophisticated analysis of massive amounts of data, far larger and from many more kinds of sources than ever before. The definition of Big Data can be traced back to the 3Vs model defined by Doug Laney in 2001: Volume, Velocity, and Variety. The fourth V was later added in different fashions, such as “Value” or “Veracity”. Interestingly the conceptualization of Big Data in the beginning of this century seems to gain wider use now after nearly 14 years. This sounds a little strange as the present dynamic world ha...

Internet of Things Maturity Model By @TonyShan | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Internet of Things (IoT) is booming. The “Software for the Internet of Things (IoT) Developer Survey” report, published by Embarcadero Technologies last month, shows that 77% of development teams will have IoT solutions in active development in 2015 with almost half (49%) of IoT developers anticipating their solutions will generate business impacts by the end of this year. IoT Maturity Model (IoTMM) is a qualitative method to gauge the growth and increasing impact of IoT capabilities in an IT environment from both business and technology perspectives. It comprises  a set of crite... (more)
