Where Are RIA Technologies Headed in 2008?

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because they can only give you answers." Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions.

From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed. What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?

Social Media on Ulitzer - Strategy Nets New AUM for RIA

Social Media on Ulitzer RIAbiz.com recently discussed the findings of an August 24-25, 2009 Investment News survey conducted on the Twitter habits of the financial-advisory community.  Not surprisingly the survey reveals that "a mere 14.9% of financial advisers say they communicate with clients or colleagues through Twitter.  Meanwhile, only 44.9% and 43.8% of advisers say they use LinkedIn and Facebook, respectively, the survey found".

Web Application Lifecycle Maintenance

Like an automobile, a web application needs occasional maintenance and management over its life cycle. Although it doesn't need oil changes, it will probably need version upgrades. There may not be manufacturer recalls, but sometimes servers fail or hang. An application doesn't need to be washed and detailed, but it does need to be backed up. And both cars and applications need occasional performance tuning. This article provides a complete list of the system management functions that need to be performed on a standard architecture web application, with a particular emphasis on doing so in an Infrastructure-as-a-Service environment. 1. Evaluation Anyone who has implemented an application without sufficient evaluation, only to realize too late that it does not solve the business problem, will understand why evaluation is part of the application lifecycle.

HBO Brings Its Content to Google Play

If you’re not an HBO subscriber and you don’t know someone who’s willing to give you their HBO Go login credentials, then you’re pretty much locked out of the pay cabler’s walled original content garden.

And more content is planned to hit Play soon, including HBO’s famed documentaries, although the cabler didn’t get any more specific than to say it’d arrive in the next few months.

Google Beats its own CAPTCHA

By ShannonPerry When registering for email accounts online, have you ever had trouble reading those fuzzy letters and faded numbers that prove you are not a robot? Those tests happen to have a name, CAPTCHA – “Completely Automated Public turing tests to Tell Computers and Humans Apart” – and Google programmers have developed an algorithm that can solve them. That is, the technology can interpret the image into letters and numbers. Researchers at Google chronicled these impressive developments in an academic paper released April 14th. The project set out to develop software that could recognize multi-character text from imagery, in order to correctly read street names and numbers from Google’s Street View. More accurate addresses will mean better Google Maps, and better maps will mean happier Google users. The team then applied the algorithm to its own CAPTCHA system ... (more)

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
