No Magic Inc., the leading global provider of integrated modeling, simulation, and analysis services and solutions, launched its World Conference today to an audience of business executives all asking the same question: “How can modeling and simulating my business activities save me money in this uncertain global economy?” The sold-out conference runs through February 20th.
“Every major business is looking to become more efficient and profitable, and if the CEO isn’t looking at it, the Board of Directors should be asking, ‘Why not?'” says Gary Duncanson, CEO of No Magic, Inc. and host of the World Conference. “Nobody can predict the future, especially in this uncertain economy. But with the ability to model future scenarios, realize gaps in your systems, then plug those gaps with better standards-based technology, your enterprise finds a clear direction and better probability for success. And as entire industries become standards-based, it becomes easier to collaborate with your clients and partners.”
The conference will be headlined by industry leaders Dr. John Zachman (Zachman International), Dr. Richard Soley (OMG, Inc.), Steve Durbin (Information Security Forum Limited) and feature industry experts in more than 60 sessions. Former Navy Seal Clint Bruce, President of Trident Response Group, will also discuss counter-terrorism, intelligence solutions in the private sector and security vulnerabilities for public companies. Presentations will focus on UML modeling, enterprise architecture, systems engineering modeling language, ontology and business-specific sessions for the “C” level executive.
This year, the hot topics include modeling and simulation of crisis management events, standards in cloud computing, cyber-security and “Big Data.” Standards -- specifically, standards-based interoperability -- enable two or more industries or industry segments to interact with each other to provide a customer desired and complete solution, and as a result, growing and benefiting each of the industries.
Top technology sponsors include Sodius, SNR Denton, Cyber Defense Labs, International Institute of Business Analysis, Nomos Software, Phoenix Integration, Model Driven Solutions, OMG and XBRL. The Allen Economic Development Corporation of Allen, Texas is also sponsoring the event. No Magic’s global headquarters is located in Allen, 23 miles north of downtown Dallas.

The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new da...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Secure Cloud through Automated Compliance | @CloudExpo @CloudRaxak #Cloud #BigData #DevOps #Microservices
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...
