[session] The Power of Linked Open Data Cloud By @UmeshKanade24 | @CloudExpo #Cloud

How to access, re-organize & load useful data from the Linked Open Data Cloud in your environment to enable Big Data analytics

Harnessing the Power of Linked Open Data Cloud for Better Decision Making

Most organizations are wondering how to utilize data science to improve decision making and business intelligence. What holds up this process is lack of data for analytics teams. To some extent this dilemma has been resolved by the Open Data initiative publishing large datasets in the cloud and making it freely available.

In their session at 17th Cloud Expo, Umesh Kanade, GM of Technology Solutions at Harbinger Systems, and Asheesh Choksi, Senior Architect at Harbinger Systems, will describe how to access, re-organize and load useful data from the Linked Open Data Cloud in your environment to enable Big Data analytics. They will also present a case study on how healthcare providers benefit by such datasets from open data cloud to make informed decisions in their practice.

For the Past Four Years @CloudExpo Has Been a Must-Attend Event for MetraTech/Ericsson
This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents. [continued]

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
SYS-CON Events announced on June 9, 2015 at the Javits Center that the 2nd "Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, and the "Third Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place June 7-9, 2016, at Javits Center in New York City.

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.

Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
