On Wednesday, March 3, 2010 in Palo Alto the SDForum Semantic Web SIG hosted “Intelligence from the Cloud” with presenters Wesley Chun from Google AppEngine Team and Andrew Lampitt from Jaspersoft. They focused on new tools for creating and using web intelligence and semantics in the cloud. Text from DJCline.com
Andrew Lampitt from Jaspersoft and zAgile gave his definitions of business intelligence, semantics, analytics, and the cloud. Jaspersoft deploys business intelligence to the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud and semantic layer in a way business users understand without becoming database developers. zAgile is an ontology-driven context server integrating semantic enterprise information across tools and applications creating a comprehensive description of the complete information architecture. It helps recognize problems and find solutions that were not possible until now. Text from DJCline.com
Wesley Chun from Google AppEngine Team introduced the Google App Engine platform to build and deploy web applications on Google’s high-traffic infrastructure. App Engine executes apps in Python or Java on servers using the same technology that powers Google’s websites for speed and reliability. Developers no longer have to worry about virtual machine images or disk requirements but just provide the code. He talked about the Google App Engine components, architecture, and developer APIs like memcache, users (Google accounts), email, URLFetch, XMPP, Blobstore, etc. Text from DJCline.com
