You can turn a microwave into a camera and I’ll teach you how in a minute,
but before I do, let me share this news item. In a recent interview with a
reporter from the Bergen Record, Kellyanne Conway was asked about
surveillance. She responded: “There are many ways to surveil each other
now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you
can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television
sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras,
etc. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”
On its face, her statement about “microwaves that turn into cameras, et
cetera” is ridiculous. It reminds me of the late Sen. Ted Stevens’ famous
“Tubes” speech. I went right after “Uncle Ted” for his techno–faux
pas, but even then, there were bigger issues to consider. It would be
exceptionally easy ... (more)

In the first article of this three-part series on hybrid cloud security, we
discussed the Shared Responsibility Model, and examined how the most common
attack strategies persist, are amplified, or are mitigated as assets move
from data centers to the cloud. In part two, we talked about the unique
security challenges that are introduced by public cloud environments. In this
third and final installment, we'll review why it's essential to approach
hybrid cloud security with different methods, tools and best practices than
those used in the data center.
Bridging the Silo Between On-Premises and Cloud Environments
For today's resource-constrained IT teams, the explosion of public cloud
services has only increased the complexity of securing critical
infrastructure. Until recently, it has been a challenge for IT professionals
to find security tools that are specifically de... (more)
How Is Deep Learning Used in Trading
Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas
where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as

The Top 5 2016 Trends That Are Changing Software Development
By Omed Habib
Software development is a moving target. You have to keep your eye on trends
in the tech space that haven’t even happened yet just to stay current.
Consider what’s happened with augmented reality (AR) in this year alone. If
you said you were working on an AR app in 2015, you might have gotten a lot
of blank stares or jokes about Google Glass. Then Pokémon GO happened. Like
AR, the trends listed below have been building steam for some time, but
they’ll be taking off in surprising new directions before the end of 2016.
Here’s an overview of what’s coming next and what software developers can
do to prepare for it.
1. Linking Application Performance and Business Performance
Application performance management (APM) has grown incredibly sophisticated
over the past decade. By 2010, Gartner had define... (more)

Five Ways ITSM Analytics Improves IT Service Delivery
By Sridhar Iyengar, Vice President, Product Management, ManageEngine
Over the past few years, IT service management (ITSM) has become increasingly
important to an organization's IT strategy, and companies are seeking new
ways to improve IT service delivery and efficiency via better ITSM processes.
This increases the importance of tracking and measuring critical KPIs.
However, due to overwhelmingly large amounts of data, users find it
challenging to manually access, track and analyze critical help desk
information quickly. Using advanced IT analytics, managers can identify blind
spots and hidden gaps in their ITSM process as well as make accurate
decisions by monitoring key metrics.
Here is how advanced IT analytics can make the best of your IT service desk.

Artificial Intelligence has become a topic of intense interest throughout the
cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo at the Javits
Center in New York, June 6-8, will find fresh new content in a new track
called Cognitive Computing | Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep
We are now in the third, and most successful, generation of groundbreaking
Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and deployments. With it comes new
capabilities for Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL), as
organizations of all sizes work to create and use new insights from their
existing operations while also seeking to develop new ways of making their
systems and their organizations much smarter.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
