WashingtonExec Interviews Ed Granstedt on Democratization of Big Data and BYOD

By

ed Bio Photo 150x150 WashingtonExec Interviews Ed Granstedt on Democratization of Big Data and BYODFriends at WashingtonExec have just published a discussion featuring Ed Granstedt that I believe you will enjoy for several reasons.  One is that Ed is a true technologist with an outstanding background and proven past performance. He has proven himself for his abilities in visualizing solutions, creating working prototypes and inventions, and seeing those inventions through to fielded capabilities. We should have respect for Ed.

But the interview with Ed is actually not about Ed. It is about some important mega trends sweeping our community.

Here is a bit from the interview:

WashingtonExec:  How would you say big data, cloud computing, and mobility are connected?

Ed Granstedt: They all enable each other and over time, they all are going to create goods and services that we can’t imagine today.  We saw the same things happen with the Internet in 1990s and manufacturing in the 1980s. When things get put out there in a common way, it allows a lot of innovation to occur, and that drives all kinds of possibilities.

The cloud is that common space and it is being created today. The data in the cloud unlocks those possibilities and with prices coming down over time it will enable the proliferation of goods and services. Mobility is an interesting piece to this in that it operates on both sides. It is creating this huge amount of data that cloud and big data are operating on because that is how we interface with the world today, as it provides a platform for consumption of all kinds of data, applications, and problem solving. The component that connects them all together are those applications and analytics that are delivered to us, enabling us to do new and more exciting things.

WashingtonExec:  What are your thoughts on BYOD?  Are you a proponent of it?

Ed Granstedt: From a personal perspective, I don’t like being bound to something selected by a corporation as the device and the app that I have to run.  We are moving into this age of openness to the devices and I really do think that is the way to go.  We have to do it in a thoughtful way because the devices that we bring to the table and the data that we manage pose security challenges and intellectual property challenges.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infra...
When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, at the same time that developers quickly spin up new cloud instances and executives push forwards new initiatives. The vulnerabilities created by migration to the cloud, such as misconfigurations and compromised credentials, require that security teams t...
AI and machine learning disruption for Enterprises started happening in the areas such as IT operations management (ITOPs) and Cloud management and SaaS apps. In 2019 CIOs will see disruptive solutions for Cloud & Devops, AI/ML driven IT Ops and Cloud Ops. Customers want AI-driven multi-cloud operations for monitoring, detection, prevention of disruptions. Disruptions cause revenue loss, unhappy users, impacts brand reputation etc.
