새로운 모바일, 하이브리드 세상의 접근 관리

This post is adapted from Jay Kelley's original entry.    기업 환경에 완전히 새로운 세상이 출현함에 따라 ‘새로운 표준’들과 새로운 기회가 생겨나는 반면, 기업들은 조직 전체에 전광석화처럼 다가올 새로운 도전과제들과 마주하게 되었다.  오늘 날 그리고 미래의 근무환경은 계속해서 모바일 중심으로 나아갈 것이다. 모바일 근로자의 수만큼 모바일 디바이스가 두 세배로 증가하게 될 것이라는 전망은 말할 것도 없는 명백한 사실이다. IDC가 2015년 연말에 이르면 전 세계 노동력의 37%가 모바일 근로자가 될 것이라고 분석하였고 이는 전 세계적으로 13억 명의 모바일 근로자가 올해 안에 생긴다는 뜻이다. 오렌지...

Microservices, State, and the Network

Does moving to stateless microservices eliminate state in the network? One of the ways to increase scalability of services – and applications – is to go “stateless.” The reasons for this are many, but in general by eliminating the mapping between a single client and a single app or service instance you eliminate the need for resources to manage state in the app (overhead) and improve the...
