Companies now are harnessing technologies and innovations such as Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Augmentation, Machine Learning, IoT, Mobility, and Cloud to bring us disruptive products. From being surrounded by technologies like digital assistants aka Alexa and Google Home or smart vacuum cleaners like Roomba & Soomba. Or having smartwatches that are tracking our lifestyle and activities to rain sensing wipers for our cars. Technology is playing a great deal in transforming our lives. While, these technologies may have felt like POC’s just a few […]

In the recent Docker Virtual Event, Unveiling Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0, we demonstrated some of the key new capabilities of the Docker Enterprise Edition – the enterprise-ready container platform that enables IT leaders to choose how to cost-effectively build and manage their entire application portfolio at their own pace, without fear of architecture and infrastructure lock-in. Designed to address enterprise customers’ needs, these net-new features extend across both Swarm and Kubernetes (Part 1 of this blog) and across Windows and Linux applications (Part […]

A few short years ago, I recall attending a conference where the goal was to title your presentation with the word “Docker” in as many times as possible. This was a guaranteed way to generate buzz, because containers were a hype machine. And, although everyone was very hyped about containers at the time, few knew what they actually were. Yet, for all the buzz and perceived complexity, containers were actually a fairly simple concept. They packaged all the software, executables, and […]

Introduction: Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) helps to uncover the underlying structure of data and its dynamics through which we can maximize the insights. EDA is also critical to extract important variables and to detect outliers and anomalies. Even though there are many algorithms in Machine Learning, EDA is one of the most critical parts to understand and drive the business. In this part of the article, I am going to talk about installation and configuration of Elasticsearch and Kibana with an […]

Everyone today is talking digital, walking digital and going digital. The process of digital transformation isn’t a one-time project, but a constant state of fluidity that requires enterprises to continually adapt and transform. Whether its massive organisations or individuals like us, digitization has been steadily moulding our existence. In another couple of years, most of us will have complete digitally-reliant lives; and we have already embarked on that journey. Reason why, the world today seems like an innovation lab beaming with […]

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 […]

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. However, ‘Futurist’ felt like just a fancy job title, till I bumped into this piece of news – New York plans to hire a Futurist to forecast and innovate a high-tech future for […]

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 […]

“I have been in this particular technology field for over 10 years and progressed well in my career. However since the past year, I find myself very insecure, my role has lost its importance, my company wants me to learn new technologies and compete with the less experienced ones”.  This is a gist of many real life scenarios I learn from the people in my network and even the ones I interview for roles. I fully understand the dilemma that they […]

2017 is over and 2018 is here! Wishing all of you out there reading this piece, a very happy new year. May the new year be full of compliances, cost-saving, increased profitability, increased customer satisfaction, big budgets small-spending, path breaking initiatives for you. That pretty much sums up everything good that can happen in our current economy, isn’t it? If you take a step aside and look at it, you realise that the new age economy revolves around software, data, mobility, […]
