The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that
only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a
lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal
with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc
trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is
mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the
rapid changes and exponential growth.
This talk presents a methodical framework to guide the systematic adoption
and enablement of IoT implementations, composed of the following modules:
Prototype, Extend, Assess, Strategize, Formulate, Accelerate, Initiate, and
Revamp (PEAS FAIR). We will drill down to individual components in each
module. Working examples will be discussed to illustrate the pragmatic use of
this method... (more)

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 arch... (more)
