  Think Big – Now Think Even Bigger
  Join Us at Internet of Things at Cloud Expo, November 11-13,
at the Javits Center!

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.

All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.

With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend Internet of Things at Cloud Expo in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!

Delegates to Internet of Things at Cloud Expo will be able to attend eight separate, information-packed tracks:

  • Enterprise Cloud
  • Digital Transformation
  • The API Enterprise | Mobility & Security
  • DevOps | Containers & Microservices
  • Cognitive Computing | AI, ML, DL

The future of computing lies in these things. As computing takes a much more active role in our lives it will at the same time become much more invisible. Internet of Things Expo will address the challenges in getting from where we are today to this future.
The high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists from CEOs on down – including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.

@ThingsExpo Power Panel | The World's Many IoTs: Which Are the Most Important?
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.

Linux Business News

On Tuesday afternoon an hour before the Utah court presiding over the great SCO v IBM case heard the G2-Forbes-CNET motion to unseal all the court records in the case, IBM delivered a letter to SCO's lawyers offering to unseal some stuff provided anything confidential was redacted - a ...
IBM, which was the first big OEM to back Opteron two years ago, but has never subsequently seemed very enthusiastic about it, was downright effusive about it at AMD's launch party in New York Thursday night. It waxed eloquent about the 'strong and powerful relationship' it expects to h...
If you blinked, you missed this, but somebody at HP last week jumped the gun and prematurely mounted a web page indicating that HP would be selling dual-core Opteron boxes. Actually HP won't be able to deliver the things for another month.
IBM's stock seems to have found a bottom since its fall from grace last Thursday on the news that its first quarter came a cropper. At roughly $74, it's still down 10 bucks since then, 20 bucks since the first of the year.
On Thursday night at its dual-core Opteron launch party, AMD moved up the schedule on its dual-core desktop chip to challenge the Intel entry that started shipping the weekend before last. The AMD chip, meant to create one-processor desktops and notebooks, wasn't due until some nebul...
SCO has emerged from under the threat of Nasdaq delisting and its stock symbol will no longer have to wear the telltale 'e' indicating it was on the market's watch list.
Microsoft is going to launch its so-called x64 operating systems, the stuff that support the Intel and AMD x86 64-bit extensions, on Monday. Figure on both the client and the server, to wit, Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition and XP Professional x64 Edition. Reportedly they were relea...
HP has changed the name of its Linux operation to the Open Source & Linux Organization (OSLO) to advertise its open source sympathies, it said. It's supposed to signify HP's focus on open source beyond the Linux operating system. Martin Fink will continue to run the unit.
Although the words 'business intelligence,' 'data warehousing' and 'open source' aren't usually used in the same sentence, a San Mateo, California start-up called Greenplum is trying to make an open source database good enough for enterprise-class business intelligence and data warehou...
Art Tyde, a co-founder of Linuxcare, the once highly entertaining service start-up rehabilitated as a sober ISV, has popped up at the Free Standards Group (FSG), the keeper of the Linux Standard Base, as CTO. He's supposed to lead all its technical initiatives, improve certification ...
Unisys is moving into software, initially in support of its massive Windows-based 7000 machines, but eventually it wants to be broader-based and support any Intel server.
Red Hat and MySQL say they are expanding their partnership in the name of optimizing scale-out solutions for the enterprise. They're promising 'significant new joint initiative' and pretty much let it go at that.
The Open Source Initiative (OSI) wants to sort through the multitude of open source licenses and consign them to one of three new castes: 'preferred, approved or deprecated.' Brahmins will evidently be rare.
Maureen O'Gara writes: 'The federal court in Utah hearing the $5 billion SCO v IBM case has told IBM that it has 75 days to turn over to SCO *ALL* non-public information relating to its Linux contributions, a year-old order IBM has been trying duck. The decision is believed to be a ser...
Maureen O'Gara reports, referring to The SCO Group: 'The most loathed company in the industry said it had 'successfully implemented efficiency and cost reduction measures that have had a positive impact on operations and contributed to the Unix business operating profitably.' ...Compla...
AMD came in Wednesday with a Q1 loss of $17 million, or four cents a share, on sales of $1.2 billion, down 1% year-over-year, and to balance the unhappy tidings said that its loss-making Flash joint venture with Fujitsu, Spansion, was going to be spun off in a $600 million IPO. Spansio...
Garnett & Helfrich Capital, the venture buyout firm dedicated to finding 'broken and orphaned' businesses neglected by their parents, has bought a controlling stake in Wyse Technology, the flagging $175 million-a-year company, from the Koos Group in Taiwan for $35 million. The deal rep...
'Five-year-old Infiniband switch start-up Topspin Communications Inc has found the exit ramp,' reports Maureen O'Gara. 'It's gonna get bought by Cisco...A sensible enough solution considering Topspin CEO Krish Ramakrishnan used to run Cisco's Content Networking Business Unit and Infini...

CA has created a new Security Management unit, reports Maureen O'Gara, and considered along with the Storage Management unit it looks like the company's new CEO John Swainson, an IBM import, sees CA as a systems and security management house, she adds. There are also three other strate...
'Fujitsu plans to eat into IBM mainframes and high-end IBM and HP Unix machines as well as cannibalize its own Sparc business,' reports Maureen O'Gara. Its alliance with Intel bore fruit Tuesday when it unveiled a so-called 'mainframe-class open system' based on the slow-moving 64-bit ...
Quest Software, though it isn't much of a one for Linux, is rumored to be on the verge of buying Vintela Inc, the Utah outfit financed by the Canopy Group and Microsoft. Vintela's sale, should it come off, begs the question whether Canopy is imploding and liquidating its portfolio, as ...
Eben Moglen's Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC) still not having finished GPL 3, CA has taken its own Trusted Open Source License and turned it into what it calls a 'Template License' with the aim of coming up with open source license that the industry can get behind. The idea has rep...
Computer Associates is buying network service management software vendor Concord Communications in a cash deal valued at $330 million. CA, which has about $3.3 billion in the bank, is funding the deal out of its cash hoard.
A start-up by the name of Greenplum that's been flying under the radar since 2003 is pioneering the use of open source databases for enterprise-class business intelligence and data warehousing with a line of products called DeepGreen that reportedly spans a small departmental data mart...
Last Friday SCO finally managed to file its 10-K covering the year ended last October 31, a step on its path to rehabilitating itself with the Nasdaq, which has the company on its delisting watch list. Now it's got to post its first-quarter results, which it's expecting to do on Wednes...
Virtual Iron Software Inc, the virtual computing platform start-up in Acton, Massachusetts, finds itself shy one of its anticipated board of advisors. Ex-Novell vice-chairman, the guy credited with Novell's purchase of SuSE and Ximian, was reportedly forced off to protect his severance...
AMD figures its dual-cores will perform at least 20% better than Intel's dual-cores because they're better integrated. See, like most married people, Intel's Smithfield-style dual-cores, which are more like two processors inhabiting the same package, don't really communicate with one a...
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) has named Frank Fanzilli, the former global CIO of Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) and an ex-IBMer, to its board. He retired in 2002 after pioneering the use of Linux at CSFB, which deployed one of first Linux systems on Wall Street, and was on...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...

Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "mi...

DevOps has long focused on reinventing the SDLC (e.g. with CI/CD, ARA, pipeline automation etc.), while reinvention of IT Ops has lagged. However, new approaches like Site Reliability Engineering, Observability, Containerization, Operations Analytics, and ML/AI are driving a resurgence of IT Ops. In this session our expert panel will focus on how these new ideas are [putting the Ops back in DevOps orbringing modern IT Ops to DevOps].
