Beyond POC: Processing Metrics, Logs, Traces at Scale
Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It's easy to get
started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) - you can see
lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with
no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be
a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention,
time, and money.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in
Action and founder of Sematext, will share the architecture and decisions
behind Sematext's services for handling large volumes of performance metrics,
traces, logs, anomaly detection, alerts, etc. He'll follow data from its
sources, its collection, aggregation, storage, and visualization. He will
also cover the overview of some of the relev... (more)

Beyond IoT Hook Ups: How to Get Customers to Say ‘I Do'
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far.
If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting
products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage
with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for
Xively at LogMeIn, will show how "product relationship management" can help
you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer
Orchestrating Distributed Deployments with Docker and Containers
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship,
and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is
particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful
implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism - which is
precisely one of the features of Docker.
Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are
increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead
of being reserved to the larg... (more)
The Emerging Internet of Things and Big Data Technologies and Their Impact on
the U.S. Insurance Industry
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding
set of new and valuable data.

models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT).
In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable
deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and
