Mobile Devices in the Classroom: The Argument for BYOD Implementation

Mobile Devices in the Classroom: The Argument for BYOD Implementation

The debate over Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in the workplace is over. It’s no longer a question of “should we allow employees to use their own devices,” it’s “how do we manage the IT process so they seamlessly can?” The entire corporate world has accepted mobile as a “sometimes difficult but ultimately necessary” part of life. However, if BYOD really is the future, then shouldn’t we start to consider how it affects students in high school and college – those who really are the future workforce? Students today have grown up with mobile technology, and the education system needs to... more »

The 3 Amigos of Mobile Web: Javascript Client, Server + Database | #mongodbday

Dave Vellante and Jeff Kelly, broadcasting live from NYC as part of theCUBE interview series, sat down with Jerry Cuomo, IBM Fellow and WebSphere CTO to discuss Mobile Web, Javascript and the trends and oportunities in the industry. There's a lot of money in open source, taunts Vellante, and IBM is proof of that. "A while ago we made some decisions to take an approach on building our platform around open systems. Almost in a Pavlovian way, the web bell rang, we responded and got a cookie. Now the bell is ringing again, but it's resonating much deeper. It's the mobile bell,... more »
MongoDB Brings Speed, Scalability, and Performance to Handling Unstructured Data #mongodbdays

MongoDB Brings Speed, Scalability, and Performance to Handling Unstructured Data #mongodbdays

Eugene Dvorkin of WebMD discussed his company's integration of MongoDB into their infrastructure and development process with theCUBE co-hosts Jeff Kelly and Dave Vellante, live at the MongoDB Days conference in New York City. WebMD's drive to bring MongoDB in was its scalability and performance characteristic, especially sharding. Traditionally scalability, Dvorkin explained, is vertical, scale-up. It's become very expensive to find service and support for this scalability approach. MongoDB offers horizontal scalability, "as you grow, you buy cluster servers and you grow horizontally almost indefinitely." "We don't have a supplication architect working for enterprises, it's solved by the vendor," Dvorkin said,... more »

"At AT&T we came up with a tool that's called the Application Resource... more »

This Week in Storage: There is More Than One Path to the Cloud

EMC was in the storage news a lot this week. As the Internet of Things, or the Industrial Internet, continues to shift the conversation away from Big Data to Bigger Data aka our Data Revolution -- storage plays a very important role in that narrative. Equally important is the cloud and how it will impact storage. From Microsoft's very vocal desire to own the cloud and EMC and GE's goal to control the growing Internet of Things market, the shuffling that is happening on the chess board is about as easy to stay current with as Amanda Bynes. Here is a... more »
