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.
Benefits of Attending the Three-Day Technical Program

Lunch Power Panel | Microservices & IoT- Moderated by Jason Bloomberg
In this Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, panelists Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana; Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks; and Troy Topnik, ActiveState's Technical Product Manager; and Otis Gospodnetic, founder of Sematext; peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.


Microsoft Fined by EU, and "Punished" Too By HP
Microsoft Fined by EU, and "Punished" Too By HP

  • Read Maureen O'Gara's March 12 Scoop: HP Starts Pushing Desktop Linux

    As previously reported here, HP is determined to be the world's first blue-chip IT vendors to push Linux - as opposed to Windows - on the desktop.

    Reuters is reporting that HP has used the occasion of Novell's BrainShare conference in Salt Lake City this week to announce support for Novell SUSE Linux not just on its larger computer servers but also on HP's desktop and notebook computer lines.

    Asked whether Microsoft likes the dramatic new initiative, Martin Fink, VP of Linux for HP, said:

    "Does Microsoft like the fact that we do Linux stuff? Absolutely not. But they understand that we deliver Linux. We've done some work with Linux in the desktop space before so for me this is a not a really big thing to do with Microsoft."

    According to the Reuters report, Fink explained that HP expects businesses to use Linux mostly where employees only need a few applications, such as in a call center or support center where workers need to access only a database and e-mail.

    ANOTHER THING...
    I have YET to see Microsoft EVER pay out "CASH".
    I'm sure they'll spend the good part of the next
    few months or years trying to negotiate the cash
    penalty into vouchers/coupons for computers and
    MS software. (...And throw in some X-boxes - just see
    the MikeRoweSoft fiasco).

    in response to YOUR comment:
    "...the only thing that would satisfy some people is for the ENTIRE STAFF of MS and particularly Bill, to be stripped of all rights and asessts..."

    No, JUST Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer!

    The employees of Enron and WorldCom were victims, as are
    MS' employees. The decision makers must be punished.

    You cry for the MS employees... What about all the jobs
    lost by employees from companies crushed by MS and its
    actions?

    I would be quite happy with the OS being taken from them,
    open sourced and put into the public domain.

    It's the "WINDOWS" component of Microsoft's operations that
    gives them the monopoly and the advantage when it comes
    to writing applications for it. Take away the bees stinger.

    Meh, in all reality, what is it to us? Granted, we're all using Linux here some way or another, I'm guessing, so this wouldn't really affect OUR computing too much. So the ruling says that they have to stop bundeling the media player and the like with the OS. I'm guessing the users will also be able to download them off of MS's website. So what does this really do? It's around 500mil euros that goes to the EC then? I just don't really understand what the ruling is supposed to do. Even on my Windows computers, I use RealPlayer and Quicktime, not Windows Media Player, and websites could just be like the BBC or Apple's Quicktime websites, and say "Hey, if you want to see our stuff, you have to get Real Player/QuickTime". And I really don't see too many websites doing streaming windows media format video, so what does it really do?

    Finally, if MS doesn't bundle WMP in with Windows, I seriously doubt that they're going to bundle QT or RP.

    Fecal Extrusion
    in respone to "This IS LINNUXWORLD! What were you expecting to read here??"

    hoping to read balanced arguments. I dont think we should be seeking the overnight destruction of MS. Hell, their staff have mortgages to pay like anyone else. The zeal with which some opinions are expressed on this site, you would think that the only thing that would satisfy some people is for the entire staff of MS and particularly Bill, to be stripped of all rights and asessts and placed in dark, damp, rat infested dungeons for the rest of their days - and thats too lenient for some !. It is my opinion that what is needed above all else is for strong control, checks, balances, monitoring and remedies to make MS play fair and keep playing fair. With all their resources, if they really had to compete fairly we might get some real innovation from them, (not something they have "embraced and extended"). Then everyone benefits

    Ummm... BillieBobGatez,
    In response to your statement:

    "...and the linux ms-hater bandwagon trolls are coming out again!"

    This IS LINNUXWORLD! What were you expecting to read here??

    Microsoft will not stop until it is the ONLY manufacturer
    of electronics and software in existence in the US.
    And as long as George W Bush (a.k.a. Bill Gates' puppet)
    is in power, the Bush administration will help Microsoft
    make that a reality.

    Just like everyone already KNOWS... The only to make
    MS executives play nice with the rest of the technology
    world, is to "break up" MS. And give Windows to the
    public domain. (So It can be fixed by people with BRAINS!)
    Even the US Justice dept knows that, but has been ORDERED
    by the Bush Admin. to leave them alone.

    Apparently competition is a threat to George W. Bush too.

    Microsoft have been found to be an abusive monopolist, both in Europe and in America. Evidence is coming to light in the current case in Minnesota about their unfair business practices to crush rivals. Their "embrace and extend" philosophy with regard to competing technologies has been shown to be merely attempts to make those technologies proprietry, etc. etc. In short, based on past conduct there is reason to believe MS will attempt further abusive behaviour. If other products are effectively locked out because MS will make their own version of a product and bundle it with an operating system that you must have to run your PC, what incentive is there for innovation ?.

    The industry has seen the remnants of companies (some of them former partners of MS), that have been driven to extinction by MS.

    MS have played their part in the advancement of the global IT industry, but they have become abusive.
    The reasons why there was such huge acceptance and interopability of PCs WAS to a huge extent because of MS ( respect where it is due)
    The reasons why there is a problem with innovation IS because of MS and the reason why there will be problems in the future WILL be because of MS.

    I agree. The only way to break a monopoly that huge is probably to break it into pieces, say 2-4, with a strong urge to compete. :)

    ...and the linux ms-hater bandwagon trolls are coming out again! In what country does the law impose unlawful punishment? "A cash fine means nothing to MS - Any meaningful punishment has to take the form of limitations imposed upon their business practices itself - above and beyond requiring them to merely comply with law." <-ya, next time you get a speeding ticket, they should cut off your foot, to stop you from using the gas peddle...get real kiddies, they have been found guilty and given a fine fitting the crime (within legal limits), would you prefer we toss out the law books? ...you could be the next victom of your own rules...

    A cash fine means nothing to MS - Any meaningful punishment has to take the form of limitations imposed upon their business practices itself - above and beyond requiring them to merely comply with law.

    Something tells me that the fine was worth it to them, an 'acceptable loss' to hold on to the market.

    From Reuters on Monday:

    Neil Macehiter, an analyst with London-based technology research firm Ovum, said even a $3 billion fine would have been "an irritant to Microsoft but certainly wouldn't break the bank."

    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').
