New Media on Ulitzer Social media marketing is hot hot hot. While the disjointed components have risen and fallien with the VC tide for some time now, a coherent roadmap is emerging for marketing a brand, product or service via social media. No longer just a fad for college kids or a way to virally promote your fart app, social media is emerging as a powerful and rapidly growing low-cost, high-reward force for driving sales.  The price tag is appealing and there is no barrier to entry. With billions now being bet by the major players on the need for brands to have a mobile ad strategy, social media has evolved in the wings from a nice-to-have to a must-have for every company that sells anything. From a local pizza joint to a consumer packaged goods goliath, the power of human interaction to spread a marketing message though trusted social networks at very low cost... (more)

An Enterprise and Software Architect's Tools of the Trade

I have been doing Software Architecture for 16 years and Enterprise Architecture for the past few. Along with architecture I usually find as part of each gig, if not the main focus of each gig, process implementation or at least process improvement is required. It is not easy keeping up the latest technologies, processes, architectural techniques, and enterprise architecture framework improvements. I am a firm believer that to be an architect, you must also be an experienced developer. I do not believe in the hands off architect role and wish the Ivory Tower Architects would stop claiming to be Architects. They are theorist not architects. Modeling, Governance, and documenting are part of the architect's job, but in order to produce valuable artifacts you need to be getting your hands dirty. I also run into a ton of Googler-Developers. Meaning they have no idea why ... (more)

How I built a monitor for RabbitMQ

When you are going to monitor your engine, you probably try first to find some tool that can do it. Very likely, of course, that tool should be able to handle monitoring online and to notify you when the health of your engine is starting to go bad. There are already several well-known and widespread online monitoring tools available for many systems. Super! But what if I try to find a suitable tool for my specific application and… ohh, failure – I cannot find what I need. Unfortunately, it’s also very likely that no one can even suggest a suitable tool. What can I do in such a situation? Probably try to do it myself. Who can help me? You’ve probably already guessed that I am talking about Monitis.  You may ask “why Monitis?”  Because Monitis suggests Monitis Open API, and that gives you a chance to build any monitoring tool yourself. In line with Monitis slang, such... (more)

Soave Enterprises Employees Show What it Takes to Be a Leader

Anthony Soave is a dynamic leader, committed to the success and growth of his family of business, Soave Enterprises.  As a leader, he portrays the unique characteristics necessary to lead his employees and envision the next progressive steps for the future of each Soave affiliate.  But Anthony Soave believes that being a leader means being a team player, and being able to create cohesion between a diverse range of people, ideas, processes, and goals.  Soave once stated, “Leadership positions have often been portrayed as lonely roles.  I think this is usually an oversimplified and limited view.  It can be very rewarding to lead, and the ability to guide others is regularly demonstrated in one way or another by each of Soave Enterprises’ employees.   Leadership is expressed in widely different roles and settings – through involvement in jobs, schools, community orga...

The Human Face of Big Data, a Book Review

My copy of the new book The Human Face of Big Data created by Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt arrived yesterday compliments of EMC (the lead sponsor). In addition to EMC, the other sponsors of the book are Cisco, VMware, FedEx, Originate and Tableau software. To say this is a big book would be an understatement, then again, big data is a big topic with a lot of diversity if you open your eyes and think in a pragmatic way, which once you open and see the pages you will see. This is physically a big book (11x 14 inches) with lots of pictures, texts, stories, factoids and thought stimulating information of the many facets and dimensions of big data across 224 pages. While Big Data as a buzzword and industry topic theme might be new, along with some of the related technologies, techniques and focus areas, other as aspects have been around for some time. Big data means ... (more)

Continuous Testing, Service Virtualization & Beer Tasting

Parasoft's business partner Skytap recently invited Wayne Ariola (Parasoft Chief Strategy Officer) to be a guest on their DevHops podcast. With Skytap's Noel Wurst moderating, Wayne and Skytap's Jason English chatted about continuous testing, service virtualization, and how SDLC acceleration is impacting quality—all while sipping and reviewing three beers of their choice. Listen to the 30-minute podcast to hear about: How quality and speed are no longer in a "host/parasite" relationship What's being overlooked in the user-story focused testing common with Agile What the business really gets out of continuous testing The myth that continuous testing = more testing or more automation How the demand for SDLC acceleration is impacting quality How to convince teams to take the "leap of faith" needed to trust simulations The beer reviews: Abita's Wrought Iron IPA, Beck's Beer...
