World's First "Floor Wax/Dessert Topping Protocol" Is Born

World's First "Floor Wax/Dessert Topping Protocol" Is Born

We will let the launch site speak for itself:

"Light the Fiber!

Welcome to the future! XCP - the XML Control Protocol - is a drop in replacement for traditional Transmission Control Protocol, or TCP. XCP has many advantages, some of which are outlined in our rationale section. With the advent of XCP/IP, connection-oriented networking will finally move from the legacy environment of inscrutable bits and bytes to a structured, human-readable world relying upon XML.  XCP is the first 4th Generation Protocol, or 4GP.  It is designed for a networking environment that is very fast and very reliable - the Internet of today!

XCP is a floor wax and a dessert topping.  The design of XCP allows it to be a simple point to point connection manager for a single session (e.g., a traditional client/server application model).  In addition, an XCP "server" can act as the end point for a stream through which any existing service can be "tunneled".  By using XCP in new applications, you get finer control over the various aspects of the connection.  However, you can begin using XCP immediately with your legacy applications when it is in "server" mode.

This site is dedicated to describing the architecture behind the project, coordinating project activities among its development community, promoting the use of XCP throughout the Internet, and making XCP-related products available to the general public."

There is plenty more in a similar vein. Happy April 1st! - we can't wait for the first Gartner report on XCP!

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups. As a result, many firms employ new business models that place enormous importance on software-based innovations. They require not only skilled occupations, such as data analysts and DevOps professionals, with more technical skills, but also middle-level employees with more software and computing acumen. Both large and small firms operate differently.
Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes. We are offering early bird savings on all ticket types where you can save significant amount of money by purchasing your conference tickets today.
Bill Schmarzo, Tech Chair of "Big Data | Analytics" of upcoming CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York (November 12-13, 2018, New York City) today announced the outline and schedule of the track. "The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices. It actually ties back to some work that I'm doing at the University of San Francisco which creates an "Outcomes-Centric Business Analytics" degree." Bill Schmarzo, author of "Big Data: Understanding How Data Powers Big Business" and "Big Data MBA: Driving Business Strategies with Data Science" is responsible for guiding the technology strategy within Hitachi Vantara for IoT and Analytics.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2017 and CloudEXPO New York 2017. He is a regular contributor to Cloud Computing Journal.
