I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application
pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered.
From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?
Eric Miraglia of Yahoo!
1. (From March'08) How do I calculate the ROI of building my RIA on the
iPhone SDK vs using AJAX?
2. How do I assess the performance of my app and decide what to do next to
make it faster?
3. When it comes to accessibility, how do I know what's required of me for
my rich web apps? Beyond what's required, what makes good business se... (more)
My Wish List From Microsoft Azure DevOps Solutions in 2015
As the DevOps movement is growing every day, naturally we find quite of lot
of vendors offering DevOps solutions.
The main reason for multiple different offerings from multiple vendors is the
lack of clear definition and understanding among the consumers of DevOps.
Most of the offerings back track from benefits of DevOps, as DevOps is all
about fast turn around of new business capability features from a software
product towards its end customers. This means that wide array of products
that aim at, faster provisioning (Cloud), error free infrastructure
configuration (automation) and faster build/test/deploy (continuous
integration) products can fit into the realm of DevOps.
This is one of the reasons lots of 'traditional' Infrastructure and
Application Performance Management (APM) vendors have joined the Dev... (more)

Information overload has infiltrated our lives. From the amount of news
available and at our fingertips 24/7, to the endless choices we have when
making a simple purchase, to the quantity of emails we receive on a given
day, it's increasingly difficult to sift out the details that really matter.
When you envision your cloud monitoring system, the same thinking applies. We
receive a lot of useless data that gets fed into the system, and the reality
is no one in IT or DevOps has the time to manually determine the actionable
data points (that's a whole job itself), meaning monitoring what really
matters is a tall order.
Even a basic cloud application can produce hundreds or thousands of data
points per second. From resource metrics to activity logs, a handful of
servers produces more "monitor-able" data than any human can reasonably
consume. Factor in the rest of the c... (more)
Sybase iAnywhere announced availability of support for Apple iPhone during
the first international iPhone Developer Summit, colocated with AJAXWorld

organizations to provide secure delivery of Lotus Domino and Microsoft

devices,” said Mark Willnerd, vice president, Sybase iAnywhere. “In

I hear this question fairly regularly and would like to walk you through how
to host the controller in your own Azure cloud. First off, the pros of having
AppDynamics with Azure:
Have full control and ownership of the data collected by AppDynamics Provide
additional security to access the data (for example, lock it down to a
corporate VPN only). Enable easy integration between AppDynamics and your
services, such as Active Directory for authentication or internal bug
tracking system for alert notifications. These would typically require
opening custom ports when you leverage the AppDynamics SaaS environment.
AppDynamics works by placing an agent running on your servers which reports
to the controller. It’s common to have several agents monitoring your
applications. To further the ea... (more)

2014 State of Readiness for Windows 2003 End of Support: Poll Results
Most IT administrators are painfully aware that Windows Server 2003 will
reach the end of extended support in July 2015. This is a big deal because
Windows Server 2003 has been a monster success since it was released 11 years
ago. From 2003 to 2010 this platform was the workhorse for applications
deployed at both small businesses and large enterprises. And, even though
Microsoft released a major update with Windows 2008, late in 2008, most
enterprises stuck with Windows 2003 until Windows Server 2008 R2 launched on
October 22, 2009.
The newest Windows Server platform is 2012, R2 and little is publicly known
about the number of production instances. As of the summer of 2014 however,
it was widely reported that Microsoft believed there to be 22+ million
Windows 2003 Servers still running productio... (more)
First off, let me just say that I've been waiting for this day for almost a
year now. When Silverlight 1.0 came out, I was terribly disappointed but I
cross-platform runtime. When Silverlight 1.1 came out (which I think was
actually only a few days after 1.0) as an alpha, I was even more intrigued
and excited. Sure, it had no controls, no layout panels, and no data binding,
and very little networking support - but it ran with a .NET CLR back-end, and
it was cross-platform. I was writing C# code in Visual Studio that would
eventually run (and could be debugged!!) on Safari on Mac OS X.
Now the first of what I consider the true Silverlight releases is here -
Silverlight 2.0 Beta 1. Microsoft has been getting an unfair onslaught of bad
press from developers regarding Silverlight. In the good old days... (more)

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?
