Alerting is so passé. Think about it. How much of an outage is spent on alerting? Two minutes, maybe 15 if you’re unlucky and the person you’re looking for is not-so-easy-to-find. There are lots of services that alert you when something broken, but what happens after that?

Analytics have become part of our everyday experience. If you have a Fitbit you can see analytics on your weight loss and step goals over weeks at a time.

This may be best represented by the overwhelming attendance at this year’s fall Strata Conference focusing on the world of Apache HadoopTM, October 28 through October 30 in New York.
Time-based access tools are a great way to give someone temporary access to your code or service. It’s like going on vacation and giving your neighbor the keys to your house; the only difference is the keys automatically stop working when you get back from your trip.
