Rise: Anticipatory Supply Chains.

Andrew Musselman from Accenture recently spoke at the Scalability / Distributed Systems meetup on the Microsoft Redmond Campus. Accenture is reacting to the emergence of time series data in enterprises, building Hadoop business analytics for SAP systems not designed for vast data from sensors & IoT. Andrew is principal scientist in the global big data practice at Accenture where he leads the data science team in North America. He is a committer on the Apache Mahout project and is writing a book on data science for O’Reilly. http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Hadoop-HBase-NoSQL-Meetup/events/174605462/
Deloitte is also looking ahead: We expect that the vision of the anticipatory supply chain will take years to realize fully. At every step, the most effective organizations will be those applying cutting-edge technology to enhance their real-time understanding of activity in complex supply networks, and to improve the economics of having production capacity closer to consumption locales. As the Internet of Things expands and companies’ analytics become more sophisticated, predictive supply decision making will increasingly become automated. Sensors signaling disruptions or unexpected activity in remote corners of the world will trigger appropriate adjustments in the flows of materials and energy.  http://dupress.com/articles/bus-trends-2014-anticipatory-supply-chains/
Flextronics spinout Elementum already has traction with mobile devices, confirming another source of data for anticipatory supply chains:

Framework: Strongloop’s Loopback for Node.js APIs

Recently I did a series for New Relic on three frameworks, both for APIs and web apps. I titled it “Evaluating Node.js Frameworks: hapi.js, Restify, and Geddy” and it is available via the New Relic Blog. To check out those frameworks give that blog entry a read, then below I’ve added one more framework to the list, Strongloop’s Loopback.

Strength: Very feature-rich generation of models, data…

I still feel Appstores offer value to startups, perhaps time the mobile web components provides basis for complete applications on desktop and beyond?
