IDG Contributor Network: Get started with Twilio’s Programmable Voice API to build an IVR system - 3日前  InfoWorld

When you want to get ahold of someone, there’s nothing quite like giving someone a call. When that someone is a business, you want to connect to the right place with the minimum of fuss. That’s where an interactive voice response system comes in, otherwise known as an IVR. An IVR enables callers to speak or press digits on a touch-tone phone to quickly find the right person or information. Andrew Baker is a developer-educator at Twilio.

IDG Contributor Network: Forget Pokémon Go: Why you should build for the enterprise - 3日前  InfoWorld

While many startups aspire to be the next Facebook or Google, there’s a similar trend happening at the individual level: independent software vendors racing to build the next Pokémon Go. Although payout rates like Apple’s recently disclosed $70 billion may sound impressive, the reality is less enticing: 94 percent of that is going to the top 1 percent of publishers. Savvy developers have begun to realize that future app monetization opportunities lie not in consumer app stores such as Google Play or Apple App Store, but with app stores that mean business.To read this article in full, please cl...more

Why cloud adoption isn’t slowing datacenter growth - 3日前  InfoWorld

I’m always interested in datacenters because I live in Northern Virginia, where a new one opens about once a month, leveraging a huge bundle of fiber coming out of the ground near Dulles Airport and cheap power sources. Indeed, they now call my region “Datacenter Alley.” A report by JLL shows that the strong movement of data from private corporate servers to cloud services, coupled with a growing corporate interest in internet of things (IoT) initiatives, is pushing the demand for these new datacenters. With data usage skyrocketing, major cloud providers expect triple their infrastructure by 2...more

IDG Contributor Network: How AI will rewrite the rules for creating and acquiring content - 5日前  InfoWorld

IDG Contributor Network: Be on the lookout for broken airline IT systems this holiday travel season - 15時間前  InfoWorld

I attended some meetings and the NESMA seminar in Germany last week, and as I was looking at flight options from New York City, I saw one on Singapore Airlines. Of course, I jumped on it. Singapore might be one of the only airlines where I don’t feel like livestock for transport. And my theory is proven yet again as I’m writing this article from 37,000 feet above sea level. The large domestic airlines and the major European carriers tend to take a lackadaisical approach towards quality of service.

IDG Contributor Network: The key to scaling your organization is knowledge sharing - 3日前  InfoWorld

Companies are often forced to make trade-offs in their areas of focus during growth phases. With growth comes constant change in processes that often puts strong documentation and training on the back burner. In the moment, it’s easy to see it as cheaper and simpler to answer questions one on one than to spend the time to write a document that will become outdated quickly.The result is an organization that does not scale, due to developers being overwhelmed by similar support requests from multiple parties. These requests could be better solved by documentation and training. We experienced thi...more

Blockchain shows open source’s fatal flaw—and a way forward - 4日前  InfoWorld

“26,000 new blockchain projects last year!” screamed the headline. “But only 8 percent remain active!” The implication is that blockchain’s future is at risk, given the high mortality rate among its offspring. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, we need many more blockchain projects to fail to clear out some of the noise, leaving room for “Linux of blockchain”-type projects to remain.And yet there is cause for concern, though not in blockchain specifically. Instead, the greater concern should be for open source, which has never been more popular with software users even a...more
