IBM and @Skytap #DevOps Education Track at @DevOpsSummit | #AI #SDN

IBM DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, presented how to go beyond multi-speed it to bring agility to traditional enterprise applications. The How and Why of Application Modernization and Delivery 3:40 pm - 4:15pm Brad Schick, Chief Technology Officer and VP of Engineering, Skytap Technology innovation is the driving force behind modern business and enterprises must respond by increasing the speed and efficiency of software delivery.

But these existing assets can be modernized and made more efficient without having to be completely overhauled. By leveraging metho... (more)

Quantum Computing Delivered from the Cloud | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #DL

IBM Cloud is now providing developers with the infrastructure and portal to a 5 qubit quantum computer. This equips them with the ability to build interfaces between classic computers and IBM's quantum platform. Quantum computers make direct use of quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement to perform operations on data. Quantum computers are different from binary digital electronic computers based on transistors. Whereas common digital computing requires that the data be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states (0 or 1), quantum computation uses quantum bits, which can be in superpositions of states. IBM also announced today: The release of a new API (Application Program Interface) for the IBM Quantum Experience that enables developers and programmers to begin building interfaces between it...

The Zombie Apocalypse and Other Cloud Infrastructure Concerns | @CloudExpo #IaaS #Cloud #OpenStack

The Zombie Apocalypse and Other Cloud Infrastructure Concerns By Liz Durst Last month, I returned from an overseas trip to a friend’s wedding to find the zombie apocalypse happening in my neighborhood near downtown San Jose. People of all ages and demographics united together in what looked like strange cult gatherings in public parks, stumbling around the streets of the South Bay with eyes glued to their phones and occasionally yelling something strange like, "OMG I hatched a Nidoking!" Cars would come to abrupt halts in front of me at unexplained times—I half expected a scene from the movie Zombieland to unfold where Woody Harrelson would leap out from an SUV ready to give me the nickname Minnesota and help navigate safely back to my parents’ farm. Pokémon Go was released in the US on July 6, 2016. Unless you've been living off the grid in a yurt (in which case yo... (more)

However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and on the other side, organizations that will find themselves as roadkill on the technology highway.
