Modern SaaS products are increasingly delivered via the cloud, rather than as downloadable, executable programs. However, many potential users of those SaaS products may need that software deployed on-prem, in a private network. Organizations have a variety of reasons for preferring on-prem software, such as security, integration with private tools…
 
Cloud platforms are often categorized as providing either Infrastructure-as-a-Service or Platform-as-a-Service. On one side of the spectrum are IaaS giants such as AWS, which provide a broad range of services for building infrastructure. On the other are PaaS providers such as Heroku and Netlify which abstract away the lower-level choices and focus…

Prediction Markets provide an exchange for trading based on the outcome of events. Most prediction markets are centralized- they operate like a casino, where betting takes place under the supervision of one central governing organization. This makes the market less efficient than it otherwise might be: the central organization is a business, and it…
 
In the past several years, Kubernetes has become the de-facto standard for orchestrating containerized, stateless applications.

Blockchain technology has a wide variety of potential applications. Fields such as finance, supply chain management, and even voting have seen innovations driven by the development of distributed applications built on blockchains, called DApps. However, developing a DApp on a blockchain often requires low-level knowledge about cryptographic protoco…
 
The incredible advances in machine learning research in recent years often take time to propagate out into usage in the field. One reason for this is that such “state-of-the-art” results for machine learning performance rely on the use of handwritten, idiosyncratic optimizations for specific hardware models or operating contexts. When developers ar…
 
A data-driven organization collects a wide variety of data to help in strategic decision-making. The cost of storing large amounts and variety of data has dropped dramatically in the last two decades, but too much unstructured data may not improve decision-making, and can even lead to “analysis paralysis.” Organizations react by extracting the most…
