(February 16, 2005, 7:15 AM) - Theresa Bui Friday, founder and CEO of Palamida Software announcing the company's new automated solution to control software intellectual property assets.

News Story: Palamida Software announced today live on SYS-CON.TV the commercial release of the first comprehensive system to ensure that companies accurately control their software intellectual property (IP) assets. According to Palamido founder and CEO Theresa Bui Friday, whether software applications are core to a company's product offering or integral to its infrastructure, they comprise a major percentage of many companies' market value. The use of third-party commercial and open source software components has become standard in software development. This rapid shift in component development has left many CEOs, legal counsel, and IT managers scrambling for information about whether their companies control the IP behind applications that are mission-critical to their success.

Robert Hurlbut's .NET Blog: Web Services Edge East and Cabana Night

"I was at the SYS-CON Web Services Edge East 2005 in Boston for a couple of days this week. I had some work to finish for a couple of my clients, so I couldn't attend the entire conference, but what I saw was great. Some of my favorite parts were watching Michael Stiefel's talk on SOA and WSE2 and one of my heros from my transaction study days: Eric Newcomer's talk on service orientation and an working SOA. I really wanted to see Julia Lerman's WSE2 talk, but had to miss it because of work -- bummer!

The biggest highlight for me was attending Patrick Hynds and Duane LaFlotte's security talk on "Security: The New Reality". They are also giving this talk at DevTeach. There were some impressive hacks and defense techniques shown, but one hack I especially "liked" (and you should defend against) is Duane's uploading of an ASP.NET (ASPX) page to a web site, and using it to traverse the file system to obtain anything he wanted off the web server!

While at the conference, I enjoyed catching up with Julie, Michael, Thom Robbins, Patrick, Duane, as well as meeting Derek Ferguson and G. Andrew Duthie for the first time. Look for an article on SQL Injection to come out soon in the .NET Developer's Journal that I am working on with Patrick and Duane.

On Wednesday night, several of us attended the Cabana Night (sponsored by INETA). I was going to be in the Security room as an expert, but at last minute, I learned that the C# room needed someone, and Michael and I stepped in to fill the gap. Most of the questions dealt with books and other resources to get past the basics of C#, and into the advanced particulars of .NET. Both Michael and I agreed that you must always make sure you understand the CLR first (yes, and IL) before venturing out, as it will make understanding the advanced topics that much easier. Unfortunately, as it was last minute, we didn't have anything prepared for C# 2.0 information, but we had internet access and pointed to some good resources (specs, blogs, etc.) to get up to speed on the areas we were not as familiar with that night.

All in all, it was a great couple of days for me to catch up with some folks and learn a few things as well."

Editor's Note: All sessions presented at the Web Services Edge 2005 East will be made avaiable online at "education.sys-con.com" to all conference delegates.

Amazon are the leaders in this but eBay sure are catching up real fast - it will be interesting to hear what Microsoft says too isn't Brixhorn very big in the "Indigo" project?

###No one has done as much in recent weeks and months for raising the profile of Web services than giants like eBay, Amazon.com, and Google ###

It's the giants like Microsoft, eBay, and Visa too that have just joined forces to launch a program to share information about phishing attacks...hearing that they're all in the vanguard of Web services too is interesting

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...

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.
"We provide DevOps solutions. We also partner with some key players in the DevOps space and we use the technology that we partner with to engineer custom solutions for different organizations," stated Himanshu Chhetri, CTO of Addteq, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
The rise of containers and microservices has skyrocketed the rate at which new applications are moved into production environments today. While developers have been deploying containers to speed up the development processes for some time, there still remain challenges with running microservices efficiently. Most existing IT monitoring tools don’t actually maintain visibility into the containers that make up microservices. As those container applications move into production, some IT operations t...
We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code ...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

As Enterprise business moves from Monoliths to Microservices, adoption and successful implementations of Microservices become more evident. The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases.

This week's news brings us further reminders that if you're betting on cloud, you're headed in the right direction. The cloud is growing seven times faster than the rest of IT, according to IDC, with a 25% spending increase just from 2016 to 2017. SaaS still leads the pack, with an estimated two-thirds of public cloud spending going that way. Large enterprises, with more than 1,000 employees, are predicted to account for more than half of cloud spending and have the fastest annual growth rate.
