Once each year completes I try to do a run down of which posts have garnered the most attention during the last 12 months, both on this blog and on the Fusion Weekly newsletter. Here are the most viewed stories from 2014.
Fusion Weekly Newsletter
Our Fusion newsletter is more than a year newer than our PeopleSoft one and consequently the subscriber base is a lot smaller. Despite this it still more than doubled in size during 2014.
Presentaties februari 2015
Voor februari 2015 staan er diverse presentaties op de planning met name op het gebied van architectuur en agile:
Kennissesies agile architectuur bij Ordina
Op 5 februari organiseert Ordina een kennissessie over agile architectuur in de praktijk. Net als op het LAC zal ik een presentatie houden over de waarde van architectuur en time-to-market. Waarin ik laat zien dat juist architectuur waarde en snelheid kan bieden bij de time-to-market. Dit aan de (more...)
I've been doing a bit recently around DevOps and what I've been seeing is that companies that having been scaling DevOps tend to run into a problem: exactly what is a good boundary for a DevOps team? Now I've talked before about how Microservices are just SOA with a new logo, well there is an interesting piece about DevOps as well, its not actually a brand new thing. Its an evolution and
MongoDB & Sage organized an internal Hackathon
We use the new X3 Platform based on MongoDB, Node.js and HTML to add cool features to the ERP
This shows that “any” enterprise can (should) do it to:
look differently at software development
build strong team spirit
I have like many of you participated to multiple Hackathons where developers, designer and
Today I was lucky enough to attend a pre-release workshop for OTBI-E (Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence for the Enterprise). The product is currently in controlled release but is going to be generally available very soon.
What is OTBI-E?
OTBI-E fills the gap between OTBI Standard (which is more operational in nature, reporting against the transactional database and for line managers to perform real-time BI) and the full OBIA (which is a fully-fledged data warehouse solution, delivered (more...)
Last night the Nantes MUG (MongoDB Users Group) had its second event. More than 45 people signed up and joined us at the Epitech school (thanks for this!). We were lucky to have 2 talks from local community members:
How “MyScript Cloud” uses MongoDB by Mathieu Ruellan
Aggregation Framework by Sebastien Prunier
How “MyScript Cloud” uses MongoDB
First of all, if you do not know MyScript I
Data isn't really respected in businesses, you can see that because unlike other corporate assets there is rarely a decent corporate catalog that shows what exists and who has it. In the vast majority of companies there is more effort and automation put into tracking laptops than there is into cataloging and curating information.
Historically we've sort of been able to get away with this
Over six parts I've gone through a bit of a journey on what Big Data Security is all about.
Securing Big Data is about layers
Use the power of Big Data to secure Big Data
How maths and machine learning helps
Why its how you alert that matters
Why Information Security is part of Information Governance
Classifying Risk and the importance of Meta-Data
The fundamental point here is that
So now your Information Governance groups consider Information Security to be important you have to then think about how they should be classifying the risk. Now there are docs out there on some of these which talk about frameworks. British Columbia's government has one for instance that talks about High, Medium and Low risk, but for me that really misses the point and over simplifies the
In this article we will see how to create a pub/sub application (messaging, chat, notification), and this fully based on MongoDB (without any message broker like RabbitMQ, JMS, ... ).
So, what needs to be done to achieve such thing:
an application "publish" a message. In our case, we simply save a document into MongoDB
another application, or thread, subscribe to these events and will received
What does your security team look like today?
Or the IT equivalent, "the folks that say no". The point is that in most companies information security isn't actually something that is considered important. How do I know this? Well because basically most IT Security teams are the equivalent of the nightclub bouncers, they aren't the people who own the club, they aren't as important as the
In the first three parts of this I talked about how Securing Big Data is about layers, and then about how you need to use the power of Big Data to secure Big Data, then how maths and machine learning helps to identify what is reasonable and was is anomalous.
The Target Credit Card hack highlights this problem. Alerts were made, lights did flash. The problem was that so many lights flashed and
In the first two parts of this I talked about how Securing Big Data is about layers, and then about how you need to use the power of Big Data to secure Big Data. The next part is "what do you do with all that data?". This is where Machine Learning and Mathematics comes in, in other words its about how you use Big Data analytics to secure Big Data.
What you want (more...)
In the first part of Securing Big Data I talked about the two different types of security. The traditional IT and ACL security that needs to be done to match traditional solutions with an RDBMS but that is pretty much where those systems stop in terms of security which means they don't address the real threats out there, which are to do with cyber attacks and social engineering. An ACL is only
