The recent reversal in the Oracle v. Google case sets a new precedent for API copyrightability. While the decision is poised to stir up the already frenzied API industry, dozens of legal and philosophical questions remain unanswered. This discussion covers the validity of the court's decision, the major points in the upcoming “fair use” trial, the impact the case will have on the API and mobile industries, and whether it will boost or hinder innovation in this space as well a handful of impromptu questions from the audience. Submit questions in advance by tweeting to #APIcopyright.

Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Eric Robertson, General Manager at CollabNet, will discuss how customers are able to achieve a level of transparency that enables everyone from Planning-to-Ops to make informed decisions based on business priority and leverage automation to accelerate identifying issues and fast fix to drive continuous feedback and KPI insight.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart's sake," and many brands remain in that corner. But many brands are also gradually opting for more strategic approaches. They're taking a breath and stepping back to examine both existing and potential IoT experiences, asking themselves whether their products lend real value. Once we reach this goal, the implications for personalization are staggering. Consumers will expect devices they use and i...
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure. The real and more difficult question, in developing microservices-based applications, is this: What's the best combination of cloud services and tools to use to get the right results in the specific business situation in which you need to deliver what your end users’ want. Considering that new streams of IoT data are already raising the stakes on what end users expect in their mo...
