A list of resources that will help you test the waters and get you started in this wild and crazy world that is “DevOps”

The DevOps Initiative Starter Guide
By Necco Ceresani

Many companies are starting off their new year with a 2016 DevOps initiative. Why shouldn’t they? All of the research, analysts and articles point towards making the transition from a legacy waterfall-esc process to a more agile, continuous delivery type release process.

It is all good and well on paper, but when it comes down to the implementation, someone gets stuck with the over-whelming task of figuring this whole thing out. The landscape is huge, the tools are complex, and trying to figure out where your complex enterprise fits is no small task.

Let’s take a step back and learn how to swim before we jump into the ocean. Today I have compiled a list of resources that will help you test the waters and get you started in this wild and crazy world that is “DevOps”.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
