These days, users are growing more and more accustomed to expecting that they
can accomplish productive work from anywhere, at any time, and on any device.
As a result, IT professionals are increasingly faced with the challenge of
balancing convenience with security, in an effort to provide users with the
necessary remote access to corporate applications and data being demanded. In
the "old days", organizations could easily restrict access to internal
business data to only corporate-managed Active Directory Domain-Joined PCs,
but this is fast becoming an outdated mode of operation.

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)
You are a software service provider. You develop software for you clients.
Majority of your clients are from a different city or even a different
country. You are in a discussion with your client where you are exploring the
option of adopting Agile Development Methodology for your next project.
Does the above paragraph describe you? Are you concerned about how the whole
thing will work out?
If the above paragraph describes you, then I can assure you that you are not
in minority. Many of us have been in a similar situation.
The biggest challenge of adopting agile for an outsourced project is that
there aren’t any clearly defined best practices available which you can
adopt. The whole field is still evolving and the best practices are yet to

Obviously, you will have to find the answer yourself. To find t... (more)

The evolution of Web sites to dynamic rich interactive applications is a true
revolution for users. But for ASP.NET developers tasked with building
high-performing scalable applications, it presents major challenges. The
features that characterize blogs, wikis, personalized pages, and other
data-driven Web 2.0 applications fundamentally change processing,
transmission, and rendering workloads, and require new approaches and
solutions. In Web 2.0 applications:
• Content is highly dynamic, with the most of the content generated by
users. The popularity of individual pages or the application itself can
change rapidly, making it extremely difficult to anticipate workload and

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)
In ASP.NET 2.0, we introduced a very powerful set of application services in
ASP.NET (Membership, Roles and profile). In 3.5 we created a client library
for accessing them from Ajax and .NET Clients and exposed them via WCF web
services. For more information on the base level ASP.NET appservices
that this walk through is based on, please see Stefan Schackow's excellent
book Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership, and Role Management.
In this tutorial I will walk you through how to access the WCF application
services from a directly from the Silverlight client. This works super well
if you have a site that is already using the ASP.NET application services and
you just need to access them from a Silverlight client. (Special thanks
to Helen for a good chunk of this implantation)
Here is what I plan to show:

Many of today's (and tomorrow’s) development projects lend themselves
nicely to RIA application patterns. Silverlight offers a compelling RIA
development experience that works on Linux, the Mac and windows as well as
all major browsers. With HD video, vector based graphics and a rich set of
controls including DataGrid, Silverlight offers a compelling development
experience in nearly any programming language you’d like from C# and VB, to
how to create UI using XAML markup and code, how to retrieve data from the
web, and how to manipulate data with XML and LINQ. This talk uses the 100%
free Silverlight runtime and Visual Studio tools.

Windows Azure took center stage at PDC last week during the keynote (watch
here). The cloud computing space is now really heating up with competing
platform plays from Google’s AppEngine and Amazon’s recent EC2
announcements. In some sense this is perhaps the re-birth of Windows as a
platform that enables developers and the ecosystem to build on a whole new
set of capabilities and scale for the Software+Services world, in much the
same way as Windows fueled the desktop software industry in the past "era".
The really compelling thing about this particular development platform
especially combined with other technologies such as Mesh, SQL and Silverlight
is that you’re likely already familiar with it - if you’ve been
developing ASP.NET and .NET applications using Visual Studio, either on the
desktop or your own servers or hosted servers, you’re alr... (more)
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
