Cloud Shootout Teams Are Forming

Competition to be Held on Thursday November 6. All Attendees to Serve as Judges

Which cloud platform can be employed to create the best, coolest, or most useful IoT service? Attendees of our @ThingsExpo Nov 4-6 in Santa Clara can find out by attending our Cloud IoT Shootout on the final day of the conference, Thursday, November 6.

We are, at this very moment, putting the teams together. If you represent a platform that is, or should be, in this competition, please contact me via Twitter! We will be working out the rules and processes of this live competition over the next few weeks.

To date, we have five platforms in the competition: Amazon AWS, Google GCE, IBM SoftLayer, Microsoft Azure, and Rackspace.

Team members may  either be employees of the competing cloud companies, or customers and experts who represent them.

Each team will create an IoT app or service. All @CloudExpo and @ThingsExpo attendees are welcome to watch the competition; those in attendance will also serve as judges.

Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by FTC, CUI/DFARS, EU-GDPR and the underlying National Cybersecurity Framework suggest the need for a ground-up re-thinking of security strategies and compliance actions. This session offers actionable advice based on case studies to demonstrate the impact of security and privacy attributes for the cloud-backed IoT and AI ecosystem.
@DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo, taking place November 12-13 in New York City, NY, is co-located with 22nd international CloudEXPO | first international DXWorldEXPO and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
