It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
