It is truly hard to keep up on the numerus ways drones are being used throughout our daily lives. This week’s IIoT Top News is dedicated to these unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), these wonders in the sky that come in all shapes and sizes, yet are all called drones. Now that we have these UAS in the air what purpose are they serving? Can drones be helpful? A new report by Forrester suggests that no additional disruption occurs with the use of drones in a commercial environment. The report further reminds us how they are being used to collect sensor data and video, and down the road they might help create automated delivery and autonomous inspection of infrastructure. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) believes that UAS are becoming more important for firefighting, border protection, law enforcement, precision agriculture and damage evaluation for natural disa...

Extending the Product Catalog

As more and more companies focus on providing higher levels of personalization in the products and services they offer, it's only natural that their online channels offer this same level of personalization. WebLogic Portal includes product catalog components capable of flexibly managing hierarchies of products and services. By default, products in the catalog are defined using standard Dublin Core attributes. This default configuration is sufficient to support most types of products sold over the Internet - books, hardware, camaras, etc. However, certain types of products require that customers select from among desired options before the products can be purchased. We can group these "configurable" products into three main categories based on their configuration needs: Light product configurations: Products that have a small number of simple, mandatory configurable...

ColdFusion Prevents Nudity

Have you ever come up with something clever and thought "Wow that should be on a T-shirt or something"? In the summer before my senior year of high school, my friend Graham Stevenson and I had that thought many times. So many in fact that we decided we should start a T-shirt company to address the growing demand for trendy yet original clothing. When we first started talking about the idea most people asked us "How are you going to start a business with no money, no investors, and no time?" The answer usually made my peers giggle, "It's easy, I'll use ColdFusion." Of course they didn't know I was talking about the handy server-side scripting tool that would allow me to do everything from marketing my website to order processing and inventory tracking. Background I had been using ColdFusion only a bit since I was introduced to it at a summer internship a few summers ... (more)

Decade Old Data Centers

Most data centers are now hitting their teens when it comes to age.  How do I know this?  I used to work for Exodus, The Data Center Company back at the turn of the century (actually wearing an old EXDS t-shirt as I write this.)  The ‘heyday’ of the Co-Location.    ‘Daddy, what was the datacenter like when you were a kid?’  Well, we’d find a somewhat remote location and build these massive non-descript buildings, some more that 200,000 sq.ft. all over the world.  The walls were Kevlar lined.  We had multiple internet carriers dropping fiber at all sides of the building along with power from distinct sub-stations. There were multiple, huge CAT power generators that would kick in to keep the place running during a outage – even had contracts with fuel vendors to replenish the diesel for non-stop service.  We had racks and racks of DL380’s & Sun Sparcs humming through...

M, comme Microsoft, M comme... Minable !

  Certaines actions ont le don de me mettre de très mauvaise humeur et me poussent à réagir, à pousser un « coup de gueule ». C’est ce qui vient de se passer avec l’ouverture par la « PME Microsoft » d’un site Web de e-commerce pour proposer des « goodies »... anti Google. Ce n’est pas drôle, ce n’est pas de l’humour, c’est... méprisable, monstrueux et minable. Si Microsoft, pour se défendre, en est réduit à se rabaisser à ce niveau, alors il est plus que temps que Ballmer soit viré, et immédiatement ! J’ose encore espérer qu’il n’était pas au courant de cette monstruosité.   Les campagnes anti-Google de Minablesoft Cela fait maintenant deux ans que Microsoft attaque Google avec une campagne qui a pour nom Scroogled. Ce néologisme est la contraction de : Screw up : faire une bêtise, escroquer... Google Le message de Microsoft est clair : vous ne pouvez pas faire c... (more)

Digital Transformation's Impact on Enterprise Mobility and App Design Strategies

Peter RogersMy friend and colleague, the Chief Technologist of Studio 13 at Cognizant, Peter Rogers, shares his insights on digital transformation and mobile strategies in this guest post.  He digs deep into the technologies involved in a digital transformation and the role of mobility?  This article is a real geekfest so be prepared to think and learn! There is something strange in the air...like that feeling before a storm. You can feel the electric charge in the atmosphere and that anticipation of the mother of all storms, but, nothing comes. Instead there is just a prolonged feeling of anticipation of something coming down the line that will change everything. This is how it feels with "digital transformation" in the vast majority of companies across Europe today. The first problem is what exactly is "digital."  For all intents and purposes a company has to define... (more)
