A scientist states his perspective about "life being a series of sudden stains." As he walks through the machine, he encounters the sudden stains in daily life, such as mustard, coffee, mud and wine. Contrary to his philosophical way of talking, his lab coat is full of stains by the time he finished walking through. But still, he has a very confident look on his face because he can wash away all the stains with Ariel alone, even without bleach. He puts on his fully cleaned lab coat and starts talking again.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
