OOW Coverage on DevCentral

Okay, I know I haven’t been posting as much as normal for quite a while now… Trust me, I still have plenty to say, my mind has just been wrapped up in special projects and editorial calendars.

Meanwhile, Pete Silva, one of our Technical Marketing Managers, has been out at Oracle Open World and has been getting tons of great video for us.

Since they’re coming fast and furious, this post is just to make certain you saw them. He gets some great insight into both F5 and Oracle products, and knows how to keep it short-and-sweet, so they’re worth the time.

Here’s the list so far.

Oracle OpenWorld – A Welcome from Pete Silva

Oracle OpenWorld – Pre-Show Preparations With the F5 Team

Oracle OpenWorld – A View from the F5 Booth

Oracle OpenWorld – Interview with Andy Ohler

Oracle OpenWorld – Interview with Calvin Rowland

Oracle OpenWorld – Interview with Ron Carovano

Oracle OpenWorld – A RAC Connection Management Solution with Chris Akker

I admit that I haven’t yet watched all of them (working on it, other stuff going on too), but if you only have time for one, and you use Oracle RAC, check out the last one with Chris Akker. Good stuff there.

Peter has been driving much of the multi-media content on DevCentral of late, but this is out-doing himself, with a constant stream of 5-7 minute high-quality videos including interviews with everyone from SEs to VPs. No matter your interest level, he’s got you covered.

More to come…

But while you’re waiting (you are waiting, right?), don’t forget to check out Pete’s blog post on Oracle Access Manager. Combined with the interview with Chris Akker, the two give you a peek into where Oracle and F5’s partnership is going. Or at least into two pieces of where we’re going. There’s more, that’s the “wait” part.

Until next time,

Don.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
