This is what happened at the WSO2 Con 2017 day 1/3

Posted by Yenlo on 6 Nov, 2017

Usually, blog articles on events follow short after the event has taken place. But why not share our stories right now, while they happen? At this very moment, a team of 10 Yenlo specialists is at the WSO2 conference in London (read this blog post if this doesn’t ring a bell). This morning, Ruben van der Zwan already reported on a mesmerizing speech of WSO2 CEO Tyler Jewell. In this speech, Tyler mentioned the never-ending rise of the API and the importance of closing the IT delivery gap. Clearly, WSO2 isn’t done changing the world, and open source isn’t done disrupting the business landscape. Which new technical marvels are coming our way? Our specialists will tell you in this first blog of three.

5 applications of artificial intelligence that are used (and useful)

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 24 Oct, 2017

I’m having a lot of discussions lately. Being an IT person, known for their go-against-the-rules attitude, I’ve always had them, but the last couple of months it feels like I’m extra busy. Many of my discussions seem to revolve around artificial intelligence, or their added value, to be more exact. I’m a huge AI believer, but many of the people I talk to couldn’t care less. I don’t blame them. So many business owners and CIOs have been covered with buzzwords, hypes and well-meant advice, that they run away as soon as they hear the words “you need this”.

FOMO is real: join the Blockchain technology movement

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 17 Oct, 2017

People that suffer from FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) aren’t the disruptors of this world. They’ll follow trends, and deploy new techniques because they see others do the same. This often results in them spending money on things they don’t understand so they’re missing out on the important things. But when it comes to Blockchain, FOMO is real. Not because you’ll suffer when you don’t get involved, but simply because it would be a wasted opportunity. The Blockchain technology is about to knock the socks off traditional bankers, and you can be a part of the movement. And if it’s your socks that are on the line, you can use the current developments to adapt. Because believe me: you don’t want to miss this.
