Scotlynn Commodities, which specializes in the transportation of temperature-sensitive and perishable commodities, is proud to be the first Konfigure customer. Scotlynn was introduced to Konfigure by Vella Technologies, a Konfigure partner. Vella Technologies works to deliver the highest quality IT infrastructure and workflow applications to businesses around the world and views Konfigure as a “game changer” for their clients.
Scotlynn was in need of a single, adaptable application that could handle all its internal processes, from sales to human resources. However, according to Ryan Carter, vice president of the USA division at Scotlynn, other RAD (rapid application development) and PaaS platforms that the company encountered felt like "a straightjacket," making it difficult for it to turn its many ideas into functional tools. They needed something completely new and different.
Being fully Cloud-based, Konfigure allows organizations to quickly create Cloud solutions - bringing down the time and cost involved when producing business applications. Companies can also steer clear of the complexity of traditional software development and deployment thanks to the KeyedIn Solutions PaaS plus product.
The Konfigure tagline, “Don't Code. Konfigure!” demonstrates how companies can create and implement fully functional web applications, such as HR, CRM, workflow, invoicing and online forms, without the need for coding. Instead users configure the application using a 'drag and drop' environment, which can be easily deployed in the Cloud.
Carter says Konfigure is perfect for Scotlynn's requirements and has led to a fundamental change in the way the company's employees think.
"We can now focus on the task at hand, and we are always confident that the technology behind us can support the ideas we have as our business grows - we no longer have to worry about system errors or hardware issues popping up,” said Carter. “What's more, Konfigure is very cost effective. With a platform, based completely in the Cloud we can now avoid the costs and time associated with having to hire new staff members. Konfigure is a perfect development tool for the average modern business person. Those who do not have a lot of technical expertise will feel they can use the application to better run their business."
Rich Dumelle, general manager of the Konfigure division, said, "Konfigure has the potential to revolutionize the way companies operate. We’re delighted that Scotlynn Commodities chose the platform and we are pleased to hear it has yielded such positive results in such a short space of time. We hope that the platform will continue to serve Scotlynn well for many years to come and help the company grow from strength to strength."

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
