Could Russia Be Starting a Software/Hardware Cold War?

Russia is considering giving preference to its own hardware and software organizations in a current legislative bill, reducing its reliance on foreign suppliers, Bloomberg reported today

Does this mean a major hit for companies that do business in the country -- such as IBM, Microsoft, HP, Cisco and Oracle? 

Not really.

"In this day and age, every customer is valuable," said Alan Tonelson, an independent policy analyst who blogs at RealityChek. "But total Russia losses seem easily absorbable."

Here are the IoT Top 10 Movers and Shakers

2014-07-18 Internet of Things.jpg

Earlier in the week we identified the most influential companies working on the Internet of Things (IoT).

Using the same research from the marketing influence platform provider Appinions, let’s take a look at the top ten movers and shakers. Just like the list of top 10 companies, this also holds some surprises — not least of which is the influence of two of the top dogs from HP and BlackBerry.

Guess Where Workers Have New Rights to Work from Home?

It's time for CEOs Marissa Mayer and Meg Whitman to eat their words — or at least rethink their strong stances on workplace inflexibility at Yahoo and Hewlett-Packard, respectively.

Telecommuting took a giant leap forward today — at least in the United Kingdom.

Just 16 months after Mayer sent shockwaves down the spines of telecommuters everywhere with her mandate to Yahoo workers to get back to the office and just eight months after Whitman followed with a slightly less strident request, it appears workplace flexibility is making a comeback. And that includes the right to work from home.

These Trends are Driving Structured Data Archiving

The growing use of Apache Hadoop, increasing data warehouse volume sizes and the accumulation of legacy systems in organizations are all factors fostering structured data growth. To manage it, organizations are being forced to look at data archiving and how to get non essential data out of mainstream enterprise applications.

The findings appear in Gartner’s first Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving. This is the first time that Gartner has produced such a Magic Quadrant, which features 13 vendors in total including the four leaders.

While many enterprises are yet to embrace data migration and archiving, Gartner estimates that migration will represent about 20 percent of all information governance projects. To help enterprises do this, four vendors have emerged as the leaders in the archiving space: HP, IBM, Informatics, and Solix.

In this article, we will explore this quadrant and take a look at emerging trends and the market in general. In a second article, we'll take a deeper look at the leaders and what they are offering. 

 

Webinar Recap: DAM Helps Your Business Stay Competitive

Pruning shears may seem like a low-tech item, but a leading Swiss manufacturer has a high-tech way to stay ahead of competitors worldwide.

The case study of Felco illustrates how a digital asset management (DAM) system can help companies of almost any type to reduce current marketing costs, update marketing materials and put staff members to better use. The example was explored on Wednesday in a CMSWire webinar.

"The benefits to Felco are really reduced time to market in order to remain competitive, better utilization of resources, and repetitive work is reduced in favor of work of greater added value," said Marketing Asset Manager Catherine Schmid.  "We have less translation costs, and we have improved content quality. We are able to do much more for approximately the same cost as before."

These Cloud Computing Vendors are Edging Up on AWS

Sure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the golden child of cloud computing, but Microsoft Azure isn't too far behind. And according to Gartner’s recently released Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas), it's starting to nip into AWS’s market.

Gartner contends AWS is beginning to face significant competition on two fronts:  Microsoft is competing in the traditional business market and Google is challenging it in the cloud native market.

HP Autonomy Adds Muscle to its Marketing Platform

HP Optimost Visual Test_ lead.jpgHP continues to build its portfolio today with the launch of Optimost Visual Test (OVT), a new self service A/B/n testing product that builds on the technology it acquired when it bought Autonomy. The technology aims to help marketers identify new opportunities more quickly. 

The introduction of OVT follows last October's launch of HP Autonomy’s new Digital Marketing Hub (DMH). OVR is, in fact, tightly integrated with DMH and adds considerable muscle to the marketing platform. 

HP Autonomy Focusing on Healthcare Analytics #HIMSS2014

HP HPA

There are two interesting points to note around HP Autonomy’s (HPA) Healthcare Analytics release. The first is that HPA has developed its IDOL technology to target a specific vertical. The second is that it's a self-service platform designed with users in mind rather than IT.

Healthcare Analytics will not be released until next month, but HPA is already talking it up at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference this week in Orlando, Fla.

Think the PC is Dead? You May be Right

death of the pc.jpg

Wall Street must be pretty muted today. It has been a bad week with a lot of big companies calling out some pretty miserable results. IT companies are no exception, but we’re not going to talk about Twitter here. Instead, we’ll simply say Sony’s figures were so bad, that it has decided to pull out of the personal computer market.

It has also decided to pull out of the television manufacturing space, but we don’t really care about that. But PC’s are different though and the announcement by Sony comes just a day before Gartner published figures to show that the European PC market is down another 4 percent.

There are no recent figures for the US market yet, but they should land soon. While analysts will be looking desperately to find a silver lining, it’s a good bet that those figures are going to be pretty poor, too.

All that stuff about the death of the PC ... Maybe it really isn't exaggerated.

HP Autonomy Clouds E-Discovery Trend

Clouds from plane.jpg

If we’ve been carrying on a lot recently about HP Autonomy, it's only because it seems HP has finally cranked up the gears. It's starting to develop Autonomy as an asset rather than looking at it through the lens of the disastrous acquisition process that still hasn’t finished. The latest release is a new cloud-based e-discover offering.

While HP is promoting this as a new product, it's just an old product migrated to the cloud. That makes it accessible not just to big businesses and major law firms, but also to companies in the lucrative small-to-medium business (SMB) market.

Working in Pajamas: The Downside of Telecommuting

Slipping into darkness.jpg

Working from home is the best job ever ... as long as you're willing to tether yourself to technology, produce twice as much as you would in an office, blur every possible work-life boundary and have the discipline to bite your tongue when someone asks you if you ever plan to get a "real" job.

Telecommuting is a disaster for anyone who is unmotivated, disorganized, thin-skinned or has fantasies about working in pajamas. Trust me. I'm speaking from experience.

And remember this: it's the wrong choice if you expect to have regular lunch or coffee breaks (a blessing in disguise, actually, because you often won't have time to avail yourself of the restroom, either.) Your boss will call the minute you step away from your desk, creating suspicion about whether you're working at all. Differences in time zones mean calls at almost any hour of the day (or night).

No wonder those spoiled, entitled, forever-whining tech-obsessed millennials (aka Gen Y) are just so over this whole telecommuting thing. And guess what? They aren't alone.

HP Autonomy Upgrade Gives IDOL Big Data Muscle

HP Autonomy (HPA) has just unveiled a new version of its Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) platform. With this morning’s v10.5 release, HPA takes a further step toward integration of Autonomy technology into the wider HP portfolio. This release provides connectors to elements of HP’s HAVEn big data platform including ArcSight, HP Vertica and Hadoop.

HP Shares 4 Emerging Cloud Computing Trends

Cloud computing is growing up. It has matured from an easy solution to a difficult on-premises IT deployments that saved a few bucks of initial capital investment and now, finally, to one of the core elements of an organizations’ IT strategy.

What You Need to Know Microsoft's New Surface Tablets #CES2014

tegra_k1.jpg

Microsoft doesn't have an official presence at the International CES in Las Vegas this week. It stopped participating in the opening keynote and abandoned its booths on the show floor two years ago.

But it still conducts behind-the-scenes meetings with partners, hardware manufacturers, mobile operators and developers at the giant consumer electronics show. And it left the biggest footprint among an onslaught of systems from of Lenovo, HP and others. 

Among the Microsoft show news: leaks about the Nvidia-powered Surface 3 and Mini tablets — which topped rumors on gadgets like Samsung's Galaxy S5 smartphone.

A Look Back at 2013: The Year Big Data Work Began

big data

If 2012 was the year your grandmother instigated big data conversations at the dinner table (yes, the “buzz” around it actually was that big), then 2013 will go down in history as the year the enterprise began to make serious plans around it.  

CIOs are no longer talking about big data in terms of “it’s something we’ve got to do,” instead they’re making plans, putting big data projects into their budgets and writing checks.
