  • Understanding Highly Available and Scalable Real-Time Data Processing Understanding Highly Available and Scalable Real-Time Data Processing Fabio Marinelli Senior Middleware Architect, Red Hat Recorded: Jan 4 2017 59 mins
    Recognizing important patterns in data, as they occur in real time, is critical to today’s enterprises. With complex event processing (CEP), organizations can recognize, understand, and react to business events faster by processing large volumes of inbound data.

    Many critical CEP workloads require solutions that tolerate the failure of one or more processing nodes, while easily scaling to handle growing workloads. They must process a high volume, velocity, and variety of inbound data, infer the context, and take appropriate action in real time while adhering to stringent availability and scalability service level agreements.

    In this on demand webcast, you'll learn:
    • How an in-memory data grid can become the distributed working memory of a CEP engine, allowing it to scale dynamically from 2 to 100s of nodes and handle failure scenarios
    • How sharding and data affinity can be used to obtain extreme performance
    • How a message queuing platform can be used to optimize the distribution of data to multiple CEP engines
    • Which use-cases are well suited to high-availability CEP

    You can't secure what you can't see and not knowing what's on your network can be damaging. While security is about proactively detecting and mitigating threats before they cause damage, it is also about gaining deep visibility into today's complex networks which may include diverse platforms and architectures. A truly enterprise grade DNS, DHCP and IPAM (DDI) platform can provide that visibility because of where it sits in networks. On the downside, DNS is a top threat vector but it can be used as strategic control points to block malicious activity and data exfiltration. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on January 19, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a round table discussion featuring Cricket Liu, a well known authority on the Domain Name System and the co- author of all of O'Reilly & Associates' Nutshell Handbooks on DNS, as we examine how strategic DNS can be used for visibility and security.

  • Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling Tao Yue, Shaukat Ali, and Bran Selic - Simula Research Laboratory Jan 25 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The importance of facing, understanding, predicting and even mitigating uncertainty has been well acknowledged and studied in various fields such as philosophy, physics and finance. In terms of software and system engineering, due to the increasing complex of large-scale systems themselves, and the dynamic and unpredictable deployment and operation environments of such systems, increasing attentions have been given to address challenges of explicitly specifying and modeling uncertainty.
    Uncertainty Modeling (UM) aims to promote and enable explicit specifications of uncertainty and uncertainty related concepts, at various contexts (e.g., developing large-scale Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things, for different purposes (e.g., enabling uncertainty-wise requirements specifications, modeling, verification and validation, e.g., facilitating the definition of uncertainty-wise testing strategies), and at different phases of the development of such complex and uncertainty-inherent systems (e.g., requirements, architecture, design, testing and operation).
    In the context of OMG, we see a diverse set of uncertainty modeling applications, such as 1) integrating with UML use cases, SysML Requirements Diagram, to enable requirements V&V, 2) capturing uncertainty as part of SysML or UML models to facilitate design and/or testing, 3) integrating with BPMN and other OMG standards to facilitate different kinds of analyses and generations.
    OMG’s Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information (RFI) is currently open for responses. The RFI aims to solicit ideas, discussions, comments, recommendations, user needs and experiences about uncertainty modeling. Collected responses will be carefully analyzed and will be used to identify requirements, based on an RFP for an UM will be developed. Instructions for responding to this RFI are specified in the OMG Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information document (ad/16-09-02 (Uncertainty RFI)).
    We invite you to join the conversation.
