As “agile” development becomes all the rage – and with good reason – an old adage comes to mind; those who fail to plan are planning to fail. I’d like to share with you our experience from a recent project engagement that reinforced for us four key components necessary for a successful outcome:
- Set boundaries and expectations for various roles
- Attention must be paid to client’s vision and iteration deliverables
- Value of commitment from the entire team
- Expectations and understanding and their periodic review

Application and Virtual Machine (VM) on-boarding to infrastructure cloud platforms has become mainstream with the evolution of cloud migration tools. Creating target cloud topologies has been a major challenge during the cloud migration. A topology typically describes the network, storage and compute attributes, but network topology is the most important in the context of migration. A crucial question to be answered during cloud migration is whether we have the ability to replicate or re-create the source environment topology on the target cloud platform. Two aspects of addressing this requirement are mechanism of capturing the source network topologies and its dependencies as a blueprint, and a method to create the target cloud deployment blueprint as per the source environment at design time.

And you thought it was tough keeping up with your kids as you help them with their homework!
Now there’s a chance your car might be getting smarter than you!!
Dr. Sri Jagannathan, Chief Innovation Officer at Persistent Systems, writes about the advent of the smart car and why we should be looking at VIQ – Vehicle Intelligence Quotient.
As Sri explains, “The VIQ is a qualitative index on a scale of 0 to 200, on a four axis system of Consciousness, Awareness, Reactivity and Proactivity. This scale is intended to be comparable to the Human IQ scale, so that we can relate human intelligence to a machine’s intelligence.” Read more about VIQ here
We’re excited that Sri will be sharing his insights with us and hope you’ll join in the conversation.
