The Year Ahead for Enterprise Privacy

Whether it’s concerns over privacy on Facebook and GoogleAdobe’s leak of data for nearly 150 million customers, or most notably, the NSA/Edward Snowden scandal, privacy concerns have been nightly news this year. These stories and many others have sent both individuals and enterprise organizations scrambling to evaluate the security of their own data, a trend likely to continue in 2014.

Cloudera's Enterprise Data Hub Rises to the Call of Amazon's AWS

Room with Clouds

Someone joked at Strata and Hadoop World earlier this year that Cloudera was ahead of its time when it chose its name. “You should have called it On-premise era,” said the would-be comedian, referring to the fact that Cloudera and most other enterprise-grade Hadoop distros live in the data center.

That joke becomes a little less funny today when Cloudera announces that its Enterprise Data Platform is now certified and available for deployment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.

Our Connected Future is Within Reach

Our Connected FutureFor years, movies have shown new and exciting ways to interact with information; from Star Trek to The Matrix, it's all about the cool interfaces. In Minority Report, Chief John Anderton, played by Tom Cruise, interacted simultaneously with mental images, live video streams and records from various police systems. All of this information was called up in a connected manner, gave Anderton information as he required it and allowed him to store it together upon completion.

This may not be science fiction much longer. We are rapidly approaching a point where this connected view of the world is possible and this will change everything.

Search Continues to Be Business Critical in 2014

A year ago I suggested that search would become business critical in 2013, and I think my forecast was in line with reality. Certainly the Findwise 2013 Search and Findability Report indicated that more organizations were working on a search strategy in 2013, and that compared with the 2012 report, businesses displayed a greater degree of commitment to getting the best out of investment in search applications.

How Much More Pain Can Yahoo Email Users Take?

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer described last week’s massive email outage as “unacceptable” and something the company is taking very seriously. However, apart for promising remedial work to ensure it doesn’t happen again, she hasn’t outlined what the company is going to do about its ongoing problems — or given users any reassurance to hold on.

Enterprise Content Management Changes, Challenges in 2013 - Leading Vendor's Views

Every now and then an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) vendor will open its mouth and shout from the rooftops that its competitors are “dinosaurs,” though they are unlikely to use exactly that word. Instead they’ll slip in terms like “first generation” or “legacy,” which in IT-speak means retired or ready to be retired.

When you hear that kind of talk, it’s probably worth asking if you’re being spun by someone who’s fighting to gain market share. Entertaining as it can be to watch the taunting, we have to remember to ask ourselves if poking at your competitors is the best way to demonstrate your value.

We say, probably not.

HP Turns the Page ... to Cool?

OK, maybe cool is overstating it, but then again, maybe not.

Either way, HP is finally newsworthy for reasons other than being (allegedly) swindled in its purchase of Autonomy and for hiring and firing a succession of CEO’s who (allegedly) did things like give orders for spying, sexually harass an employee, prove unable to come to an agreement with HP's Board of Directors about how the company should be run, and even announce that HP will be getting out of the PC business, which it happens to dominate.

Four Big Data and Hadoop Trends for 2014

In 2012 we heard, "What is Hadoop?" In 2013 the question evolved into, "What do I do with Hadoop?" Today's question? "What’s the best way to do it with Hadoop?"

5 Ways to Insulate Your Organization from Big Data Pressures

In just a few years, big data has evolved from an emerging trend into a mainstream IT phenomenon. Organizations of all sizes are dealing with larger volumes of data, spread across a broader range of types and locations, compounded by the need to process and manage it all faster than ever before.

Though some might argue that the hype surrounding big data is growing faster than the data itself, one thing is abundantly clear: Businesses can no longer afford to ignore the challenges caused by exponential growth in data volume, velocity and variety -- otherwise known as "the three Vs.”
