As part of the change in ownership of Java EE (Enterprise Edition) from Oracle to the Eclipse Foundation, how Java EE works and is managed are starting to change.For one, Oracle is making the Java EE technology compatibility kits (TCK), which ascertain if an implementation is compliant with Java, available via open source.
Eclipse Executive Directornbsp;Milinkovich called this “a very fundamental change to the dynamics of this ecosystem.”[ Discover 2017rsquo;s best open source software for enterprise: The Bossie Award winners. | Track the latest trends in open source with InfoWorldrsquo;s Open Source Report newsletter. ]Under the open-sourcing of the TCKs, users themselves can test for compliance instead of relying on whatnbsp;Milinkovich termed the previous “pay-to-play modelrdquo; to confirm compliancemdash;with Oracle using the TCKs as a way to exercise control over the Java EE ecosystem, he said.
This open-sourcing of the TCKs should hopefully bring other providers to Java EE table, building implementations, Milinkovich added.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Moving some or all of your computing operations to the cloud is seen by many as a good way to reduce many of the management and resource demands associated with IT operations.
Still, while public cloud may remove the burden of hosting the infrastructure, the resulting changes required to operations, governance, and management structures can be as significant and far reaching as the move to virtualization itself was. To tackle these changes, organizations are turning to a new role – the cloud architect – to lead the move to public cloud.
Therersquo;s no doubt that cloud architects are in high demand.
In its 2016 Cloud Computing Survey of 925 IT and business decision makers, IDG Enterprise found that 35% of the enterprise respondents (those with at least 1,000 employees) had added cloud architects/engineers as part of their cloud investments.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Roles can be applied on a single namespace or across an entire cluster, via two distinct APIs.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Devops is the literal and figurative fusion of development and operations.
For years, these two groups have been separated by cultural and knowledge boundaries, particularly inside larger enterprise IT organizations.This separation was straightforward: Developers focused on nothing more than code and operations focused on taking that code and making sure it stayed running.
The complete disconnect between these two groups led to long QA cycles and infrequent production deployments for fear of downtime or breaking something.[ What is devops? Discover how to transform software development. | Also: InfoWorld explains monitoring in the age of devops. ]A combination of organizational divisions, risk aversion, and sequential, “waterfallrdquo; methods of software delivery meant it could be a year or more between major software updates.

Data is the new oil.
As enterprises increasingly recognize the value of digital assets, infrastructure considerations have evolved well beyond simply storing data into the growing field of data management.Traditional views on managing data typically involve block storage for database and application servers.
But videos, images, sensor data, and other unstructured file data that canrsquo;t be easily stored in traditional, relational databases are bigger and much harder to manage.Real opportunity lies in data management, and unstructured data requires a different approach. With unstructured data predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 29.8 percent through 2021, according to IDC Research, data backup and archive must evolve.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
