Why IBM's Cloudant Acquisition is a Big Deal and Who it Threatens

While the age of big data, mobile, cloud and analytics is one of great excitement and opportunity for startups like Cloudera, DataStax, MongoDB and others who have emerged during the past several years, it’s also one of danger for computing giants like EMC, IBM, HP, Oracle, Microsoft and the like.

Chances are, better than not, that at least one of these established giants won’t make it into computing’s third era. 

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.

Big Data Won't Cross the Chasm Before 2015 (But There's a $1T Market to Come)

BigDatachasm.jpgBig as the buzz around big data is, the reality is that most enterprises have yet to adopt it. And that won’t change before 2015, if you believe what tech forecasting god Geoffrey Moore has to say.

OpenText is not in the habit of giving away money. Neither is the Canadian government. However, in recent weeks, each has given $3 million to the newly formed Open Data Institute in Canada.

But open data is not a Canadian initiative, it is a global movement that is creeping into businesses everywhere — and the focus of an International Open Data Day tomorrow.

No Comprendo Hadoop? No Problema [Video]

The 'Dark Data' Dilemma: Finding the Elephants in the Room

Who Leads the Big Data Market? (Probably Not Who You Think)

Go to a big data tech conference, approach any ten people and ask them to name the technology that’s driving the industry. Most of them will say Hadoop.

Ask them to name the vendors who are driving Hadoop’s development, adoption and growth and they’ll say Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and they might even throw Pivotal, Intel, Microsoft HDInsight or WANdisco onto the list

Next, ask them which technology vendors are reeling in the bucks while riding the big data wave and they’ll probably name a few of the aforementioned providers. And get this: if they do that, they’ll be wrong.

5 Questions for New Webtrends CEO Joe Davis

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Joe Davis NS.jpg

Joe Davis, a web analytics pioneer best known for his work at Coremetrics, has taken over as CEO of his one-time competitor, Webtrends, with the goal of boosting revenue growth.

It's a task that contributed to the demise of former CEO Alex Yoder five months ago. That's when Yoder was replaced after five years in the corner office by board member David Mitchell, operating partner at Francisco Ventures, which controls the privately owned company. Yesterday's announcement caught many by surprise because the company gave no public indication Mitchell was serving on an interim basis.

Davis sold Coremetrics to IBM in 2010, and has been out of the analytics business while the big data revolution exploded over the past few years. Now he's back in the middle of it, hoping to do better than Yoder, who came to Webtrends with a sales background 12 years earlier and rose to the ranks to chief executive.
