I wrote this 6 years ago? Multi-Tenant AaaS : )

Posted by:

Just ran across this VMware vFabric blog post (which largely turned into Pivotal.io) that I wrote back in 2012. How did 6 years go by so fast?

Well, it is good to know that these concepts are still so relevant.

In the article, our architect pointed out how development and operations in the cloud is different, particularly for multi-tenant systems. In the traditional software distribution model, developers are mainly responsible for developing and packaging good code. It’s not ...

Industrial Revolutions: The First, Second, Third, and Fourth

It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.” (Source: Constellation Research)

Innovation Outposts and The Evolution of Corporate R&D

It’s Officially Time to Freak Out if Your Mobile Shopping Site Sucks

Posted by:

Interesting Black Friday research…

Visits from mobile phones comprised 52 percent of total traffic on shopping sites and apps on Thanksgiving, according to ChannelAdvisor, an e-commerce software company that helps merchants sell on big marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. The company said that 37 percent of all online Thanksgiving orders were made on smartphones, up 131 percent from last year’s 16 percent figure.

Why is there still a gap between visits and orders? People are still finding it too tough to complete ...

Wow – There are Quite a Few Unicorns – VC, Angel Investing, Startups – Do these valuations make economic sense? :)

Posted by:

Not that too many people care, but I think they do, mostly :). I mean, when you look at the fact that there is a fundamental economic shift happening.Information is becoming more valuable than tangible assets, products, services, and even money (to a certain extent).

“There are currently 141 unicorn companies globally. Recently, Mark Suster and the team at Upfront Ventures published their Venture Outlook 2016 report, which highlighted the insane pace at which billion-dollar companies are being created. With this in mind, ...

Another Perspective on Computing: Computation, Communication, Coordination, Recollection, Automation, Evaluation, Design

Posted by:

This article is a very interesting way to look at computing.

“We analyzed many computing technologies to identify the principles on which they are based, and we studied how what aspects of computation are influencing other fields.  From this, we concluded that computing principles can be grouped into seven categories:

Computation (meaning and limits of computation)

Communication (reliable data transmission)

Coordination (cooperation among networked entities)

Recollection (storage and retrieval of information)

Automation (meaning and limits ...

21 Diagrams that Define the Data Science Process

There are many situations where people need to describe the data science process.

Much like my previous post, these 21 diagrams are curated from multiple sources. Collectively, thy provide a solid, visual representation of the data science process.

Considering these processes need to scale over time, this visual exploration begins “the industrial designer’s method” of exploration for innovative thinking.

12 Diagrams that Defne Data Science

Posted by:

Given the fact that these 12 diagrams (with one duplicate) explain or define data science and come from multiple sources, they do a great job collectively defining the discipline in pictures.

As someone who does product and content marketing for a few companies in the data science space, there is often some education or level-setting required to ensure people understand what data science is, why data science is unique, and what data science can do.

GIF Artwork: I’m In Love with Blingy Lemur in a Suit

Posted by:

As I was working on this case study about how Pinterest uses Redis.
By the end, I was so inspired that I decided to bling up a little badge.

Still, I am very happy with the result.
It was voted off the original post, but, in my heart, this little guy really deserves to live out there on the inter-nizzle.
IMHO.

Comments are certainly welcome! :)

Phrases, Idioms, Sayings: You Can Lead a Horse…

Posted by:

There is an old adage about leading a horse to water, but not being able to make the horse drink.

For some reason, this saying has stuck with me. For several years, it kept coming up. The explorer in me kept asking, “Why and why not?” So, I finally added a part to make it work, to make it complete. After using it in conversation dozens of times, I have not run across anyone who heard the add-on before. So, there ...

Comparisons between Brain Science and Computer Science

Posted by:

For the past three or four years, I have had strong fascination between brain science and computer science.

Roughly half my work time is spent writing about the significance of the largest and most current technology shifts in the world – big data, PaaS, open source, data science, mobile, social, local, agile methods, and distributed computing. Over 2-3 years, I’ve contributed to somewhere around 200 articles in the space for one of the most innovative “start-up” companies on the planet ...
