In a recent panel session I chaired, a question was raised from audience in
the Q&A part about how to relate Big Data and Big Service. There are
basically two aspects in this: Big Data as a Service, and Big Data for Big
Big Data as a Service: BDaaS is to a large extent Big Data cloudification. We
build Big Data as a capability to collect, transform, import, store, process,
query, analyze, explore, predict, export, search,visualize,
and display a large amount of data. Then we expose this capability as a
service in a SaaS fashion, so users can leverage it to quickly solve business
problems without worrying about the low-level plumbing activities.
Alternatively, part of these components are developed as PaaS functions, so
that they can be consumed or assembled as cloud services at a more granular
level. Big Data for Big Service: Big Data is a core element of ... (more)
I will present a tutorial on the service-oriented model-driven architecture
design for cloud solutions in the upcoming International Conference on Web
Services (ICWS 2009). Please join the session to explore the state-of-the-art
approach to effectively developing cloud services in a systematic fashion.

As we are approaching the year end in 2013, we have seen significant growth
of big data this year in the rear mirror. Looking forward, what will be the
forecast for the upcoming new year? Where are technologies headed in 2014?
There are many interesting movements and activities in the technology
frontier. It is exciting that more open source innovations are steadily
changing the paradigm. The following items are predicted to be the Top 5 hot
areas next year: Connection, Hybrid, Analytics, SDX, and Mobile (CHASM).
Connection: The Internet of everything enables people, devices and e... (more)
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)
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020, according to an
IDC's study. Are we ready for this massive demand? How can we deal with the
Some firms choose to take no action by claiming they are too busy with what
they are doing. Some organizations blindly jump into it with no thinking or
planning. Some companies opt to take a bold stance to bet on something
immature. Needless to say, all these attempts are highly risky and naive.
What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively
handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
