ad:tech San Francisco, the largest digital marketing event of the year, today hosted a speed round media briefing which highlights the show’s biggest news announcements from exhibitors in fast-paced, three minute presentations to ad:tech’s attending press. Presenters represented some of the most innovative companies in the digital marketing space.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.
