Well, many of you would wonder why this question is being raised again. Considering that open source has been around for over 25 years and has been an integral part of your enterprise software needs. You might even be thinking, ‘does it matter if it is open source or not, since everything I am consuming is a cloud-based service’. The common thread in these arguments is that enterprises have started taking open source software for granted and it has become an […]

Not quite long ago at DockerCon Europe 2017, Docker announced that the next major release of Docker Enterprise Edition Platform will support Kubernetes. What I really liked about this announcement was that it was not just an announcement for commercial support or integration between two technologies but it was rather a reunion of two major communities in the container world. Since the beginning, Docker has been focusing on making things easier for end users. Be it with the built-in orchestration engine […]

Some months back, Ashnik’s CEO, Sachin Dabir had written an interesting blog on Exponential Innovation quoting the Futurist, Gerd Leonhard. Never having heard of him prior to that, I read up about on him, watched some of his videos and realised the substantial amount of followers he had.

A miniature racing track with curves and slopes. 4 remote controlled speed cars by 4 different players. People cheering for the winner. After every lap, the players would swap the cars (thereby getting a chance to race on different track with different turning angles). Here we were, witnessing an interesting racing scenario. What was odd about it – It was not a gaming zone, it was a tech convention (ElasticON). And the purpose of this race was to demonstrate how one […]

Our phones have become so crucial to us today that our necessities list would literally read like air, water, food and phone. And not necessarily in that order! We had wallets, cards, cash, and newspapers – now we have a phone. We had habits, now we have […]
