Ten Things Data Can (and Should) Do For Your Business

In the world of data, we spend much of our time talking about software, and for good reason: the modern wave of tools is dramatically superior to the tools of even five years ago. But there’s a related question that bears revisiting: WHAT should we be doing with those tools? While that may seem like an obvious question, the very existence of the revolutionary new tools makes now a great time to revisit the fundamentals of how we view our relationship with data.

Spoiler alert: many of the obvious valuable things were prohibitively difficult to execute using previous tools – so much so that we’ve forgotten what we should be doing! The speaker (Rob Collie) has seen it all in the process of helping literally hundreds of organizations revolutionize their relationships with data, and in this thought-provoking and non-technical talk, he will share 10 recurring and valuable patterns observed within the past 2-3 years.

Deconstructing Interaction Platforms - Technical Review of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter

Most of us have 'liked' or swiped a comment in a conversation thread. The underlying code relies on a growing data model for delivery of comment information to users and to other solutions in the software system. Attendees will learn of the tools and techniques used the Big 3 in their interaction platforms, with a checklist of capabilities that you will be expected to have in your reusable library.

Real World Internet of Things (IoT) - Featuring Cloud-to-Cloud APIs

As consumer devices such as the NEST thermostat and a host of water leak detectors seek to augment the DIY security system ecosystem, or the cable provider ecosystem, or the custom mobile application from those three guys in Greenwood, reality is quickly seen. Direct access to these devices is only through an intermediary - an API call through a cloud - to get and, if approved, to change a value. How is that orchestrated in the real world, when you need to read thousands of devices of many types?
