We've all seen an innovative data project that fails and all too often the reason isn't a lack of technical skill among the team members. In order to succeed in complex organizations, data project teams require both diversity and versatility (and their sources aren't always where you might expect). From the battlefield to the boardroom, Amy Gaskin's experience demonstrates that incongruous teams can achieve remarkable results.
Amy Gaskins has previously worked for NOAA and MetLife. Amy was an Assistant Vice President in MetLife’s Global Technology & Operations, managing data science projects in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. In her previous government service, Amy spent over 10 years as a senior intelligence analyst supporting various agencies within the United States Intelligence Community and Department of Defense.
In 2015, PLUMgrid turned to The Linux Foundation to help start IO Visor, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, which developed a set of open source IO and networking components used to build IO Modules for use in networking, security, tracing and other application functions in a datacenter.
"We have been really blessed in being able to leverage the pool of expertise from The Linux Foundation," says Wendy Cartee, VP of Marketing & Project Management at PLUMgrid. “We learned so much from everyone in the community and [The Linux] Foundation in terms of actively engaging with the developers.”
Docker catalyzed the software industry, causing it to reach a new level of innovation and growth. Docker’s success, however, was unforeseen, said Scott Johnston in his keynote talk at Collaboration Summit. Looking back, the key elements were: Accessibility, Portability, and Openness.
Robert Waterworth presents an outline of the modules, tools, and governance being developed by an international group organized by the Clinton Climate Initiative for use in monitoring, reporting, and verification of carbon emissions from the land sector. He discusses the international agreements that have led to the need for such tools and why a second generation of technology is critical for handling the enormous quantities of data now available from satellites and ground-based measurements on topics ranging from deforestation and land restoration to agriculture.
Developers are empowered, for the first time in history, to make decisions that traditionally were made by IT managers, CIOs, and other executives, says Stephen O'Grady, co-founder and principal analyst at RedMonk in his keynote at Collaboration Summit 2016. And that means that open source is now the way business is getting done, whether managers know it or not.
Zemlin’s career spans three of the largest technology trends to rise over the last decade: mobile computing, cloud computing and open source software. Today, as executive director of The Linux Foundation, he uses this experience to accelerate the adoption of Linux and support the future of computing.
Zemlin works with the world’s largest technology companies, including IBM, Intel, Google, Samsung, Qualcomm, and others to help define the future of computing on the server, in the cloud and on a variety of new mobile computing devices. His work at the vendor-neutral Linux Foundation gives him a unique and aggregate perspective on the global technology industry.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are hot areas of innovation that are bringing unbelievable benefits to the different components of IT infrastructure, said David Meyer, Chairman of the Board at OpenDaylight, a Collaborative Project at The Linux Foundation, in his presentation at the DevOps Networking Forum last month. And while it’s still unclear, how networking projects will actually incorporate machine learning and AI, these technologies are coming soon to the networking industry.
