In the last few years we have seen a rapid evolution of data. The need to embrace the growing volume, velocity and variety of data from new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been accelerated.
The ability to explore, store, and manage your data and therefore drive new levels of analytics and decision-making can make the difference between being an industry leader and being left behind by the competition. The solution you choose must be able to:
• Harness exponential data growth as well as semistructured and unstructured data
• Aggregate disparate data across your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud
• Support the analytics needs of your data scientists, line of business owners and developers
• Minimize difficulties in developing and deploying even the most advanced analytics workloads
• Provide the flexibility and elasticity of a cloud option but be housed in your data center for optimal security and compliance

Despite all your planning, the release made it to market with some significant bugs, and your company has had to run damage
control. Now you’re getting questions about what went wrong, and before you know it, the blame game is in full force, with your
developers and testers pointing fingers at one another.
So what happened? Whose fault was it really? And what can you do better next time? The truth of the matter is, at a time when
the stakes for software development are higher than ever (and only continuing to rise), the blame game simply isn’t going to cut
it. And if you’re operating in a true DevOps environment, the finger pointing should never even happen in the first place.
Managing Hadoop batch processing may consume a significant portion of application developers’ time and effort, which drives up application development times and costs. This paper from BMC discusses the obstacles IT organizations face in developing and managing Hadoop jobs and workflows and how a workload automation solution can remove these barriers.
Zoom out to the bigger picture, though, and you see that Facebook is just one channel. If you use Skype, Slack, Kik, and digital voice assistants, you’ll have to build six or eight of these endpoints straight away. And chatbots are being asked to handle ever more complex responses, so you better build on a platform of machine learning and natural language processing to keep up.
That’s why the question enterprise developers should be asking is not “Which chatbot service do I start with?” but “Which platform will let me crank out a chatbot today and also support multiple channels and integrate with back-end systems as these chatbots take off?”
Would you like to make better-informed decisions about where to invest your time & resources? Are you interested in gaining more insight into what is working, what isn't, & why?
There is a movement towards advanced & predictive analytics in the Learning & Talent Management space.
But what does that really mean? Bluewater's team of consultants & developers can help you define what analytics means for your company.

OpenVPN is a popular and respected solution for enabling remote access to AWS VPCs for IT personnel, cloud developers, and a wide variety of end-user roles. While OpenVPN may be all that is needed to enable cloud access for a few users, it alone cannot meet the needs of growing organizations – particularly those that have security or compliance requirements. Similarly, Bastion hosts or jump hosts are often used when AWS is primarily focused on developers, but these tools likewise have scaling and security limitations.
As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, review key requirements and compare the remote user VPN options available for managing and securing access to AWS VPC resources. They also demonstrate features that ensure your remote access tools and methodology are “enterprise cloud-ready.”

Inside the API Product Mindset
APIs expose data or functionality for use by applications and developers, which means they allow access to a business’s valuable digital assets—and thus to the heart of the business itself. Vulnerable APIs can expose a business’s core data and services to a variety of threats. Therefore, API security should be of paramount importance to any enterprise that exposes digital assets.

Microservices are a type of software architecture where large applications are made up
of small, self-contained units working together through APIs that are not dependent
on a specific language. Each service has a limited scope, concentrates on a particular
task and is highly independent. This setup allows IT managers and developers to build
systems in a modular way. In his book, “Building Microservices,” Sam Newman said
microservices are small, focused components built to do a single thing very well.
Thanks to the rise of containers and microservices, the rate at which new application projects are moving into production environments is accelerating exponentially. Developers have been employing containers for some time to speed development of applications.
But the arrival of these applications to production environments inevitably creates new challenges for IT operations teams, since most IT monitoring tools don’t provide visibility into the containers that make up those microservices. As those container applications move into production, IT operations teams suddenly are finding themselves potentially flying blind.
With an estimated 9 million developers worldwide, the Java community
is a very robust one. One of the most important uses of Java today is
building applications for mobile devices using the Android operating
system. In addition, Java remains incredibly popular for enterprise
applications and client-server web applications, and is also a very
common language of instruction in software development courses.

Growing your enterprise is an ongoing priority. And, as the
application economy continues to expand, it’s likely that
you’re looking at digital business initiatives to fuel a significant
portion of that growth. Among the most promising objectives
of such a strategy are:
• Providing superior digital experiences for consumers
• Expanding markets and revenue streams through
• Connecting employees and partners to enterprise
data anywhere, anytime
• Launching innovative new services for the Internet
of Things (IoT)
Successfully executing a digital strategy requires the ability
to launch new apps and coordinate your digital presence with
partners. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) create
the connectivity required to share enterprise data and digital
content with those apps and partners over the Internet.
APIs are a critical component of digital business—empowering
developers to build apps across any channel and enabling
partners to incorporate your dat
In today’s application economy, interaction between a business and
its customers, partners and employees is increasingly through apps.
And omni-channel access to these applications—from anywhere at
any time—is dependent on APIs. These APIs provide an interface for
developers to code against, and must be robust enough to support
As a result, APIs are perhaps the most critical technology in digital
business design today. APIs sit between your application clients
—apps, websites and devices—and application backends. By
leveraging APIs, you can securely stretch the boundaries of your
enterprise by tapping into a broad array of digital businesses, digital
customers and digital devices.
But just as important as the API, is the application backend itself.
Behind the API, the data access layer and application logic layer are
doing the heavy lifting—implementing business rules, maintaining
data consistency and managing interactions with various data
sources. These three com
CA Live API Creator creates application back-ends exposing enterprise-class REST/JSON APIs, including access to existing
data and applications. It enables developers to create new REST endpoints that join data across diverse data sources using
role-based security and interactive testing.
The CA Live API Creator Reactive Logic model yields systems that are highly scalable and reliable. Its optimized services
run more efficiently and with less fragility than services manually coded by skilled developers and architects.
Increasingly, enterprises are opening their data and applications to partners, developers, mobile apps and cloud
services. APIs provide a standardized way to open up information assets across the web, mobile devices, serviceoriented
architecture (SOA) and the cloud. However, to make API information sharing safe, reliable and cost-effective,
enterprises must deal with critical security, performance management and data adaptation challenges.
CA API Management combines advanced functionality for back-end integration, mobile optimization, cloud
orchestration and developer management. It is unique in its ability to address the full breadth of enterprise
API management challenges.
