Google recently announced the names of the recipients of its 'Best of 2017' award, which is Google's most prestigious award whereby tens of thousands of applications added to the Play Store on a daily basis were considered for the accolade. ArabiaWeather, a regional household name and provider of its weather forecasting app of the same name, was awarded the 'Best Daily Helper' award for the MENA region.

The award comes as a result of ArabiaWeather's efforts over the last year, during which the app succeeded in maintaining its ranking as the #1 application in the 'Weather' and 'Travel' categories in several countries. In response to this recognition, ArabiaWeather CEO Mohammed Al Shaker stated, "We are very pleased to be singled out by Google, amongst fierce competition in this category, across the MENA region. ArabiaWeather's app users are the backbone of this Company, and we hope to always exceed their expectations and meet their every need."

ArabiaWeather has been investing heavily in its consumer technologies, growing its following exponentially on both iOS and Android platforms in addition to social media. Looking to the future, Al Shaker added, "We are very excited about what's next for ArabiaWeather. We are all working very hard on developing products that are useful and relevant to both consumers and enterprises."

ArabiaWeather's Product Engineering and Consumer teams have also been working tirelessly this year on introducing new app features. Among these enhancements are three major product feature updates; the first of which is a clothing recommendations section in the application which recommends what best to wear during the day based on the expected weather conditions. The second is a section in the application with the purpose of informing on whether schools will be operating regularly or if there will be any delays or days off due to adverse weather conditions. Furthermore, ArabiaWeather will be relying more heavily on video content for the dispersion of weather reports and updates as part of its new strategy, aimed at widening its reach and increasing consumer engagement and satisfaction.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
