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. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business 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 the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Service practice, to discuss how the IoT has the potential to shrink the distance between the insurer and insured by providing increased knowledge of the behavior of customers, ...

Pick up any technology publication, read a health blog and you are going to find yourself smack in the middle of an article on the wearable technology market and its future. Offered in multiple form factors such as glasses, jewelry, headgear, belts, armwear, wristwear, legwear, footwear, skin patches, exoskeletons and e-textiles, wearables are projected to reach wildly varying projections from as little as $750 million in 2012 to as much as $70 billion by 2024.

F5 Networks to Present at @DevOpsSummit NY | @F5Networks [#DevOps #IoT]

Pushing the DevOps Envelope: How Microservices Extend DevOps to the Network DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that's changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into "the network" for DevOps. Speaker Bio Lori Mac... (more)

Red Hat to Present at @DevOpsSummit New York | @RedHatNews [#DevOps]

Containers: Don't Skeu Them Up. Use Microservices Instead Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn't actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rather than mimicking legacy ser...
