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.

Big Data Maturity Model (BDMM) is a qualitative method to show the growth and
increasing impact of big data capabilities in an IT environment from both
business and technology perspectives. It comprises a set of criteria,
parameters and factors that can be used to describe and measure the
effectiveness of the big data adoption and implementation.
5 levels of maturity are defined: Advanced, Dynamic, Optimized, Primitive,
and Tentative (ADOPT). The definitions of all these levels are listed below:
Primitive: initial stage of disconnected activities in an unorganized 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)
As virtually all of us are marching in the journey of cloud and SOA, a
critical question is what is the right order to deal with these two
disciplines. There are various routes that can be taken. The following table
provides a pro-and-con comparison of different paths.
Regardless which route to take, an organization needs a solid plan to
organize the undertakings in a lifecycle fashion. A technology roadmap is a
comprehensive plan to achieve short-term and long-term objectives with
specific technology directions and actions to help meet the strategic goals.
It is an arrangement ... (more)
Once again, we have seen exciting and phenomenal movements in the technology
frontier this year, particularly in the fields of SMAC. Looking forward, 2013
is expected to be more accelerated and innovative. I predict that the
challenging theme for next year lies in the following areas: Mobile,
Analytics, Gamification, Interfacing, Cloud and Social (MAGICS).
Mobile: Mobile devices will consolidate and converge towards an all-in-one
handheld, which also serves as a sensor and remote control to other embedded
smart devices and services. Analytics: Big Data analysis will advance to
