Amazon Changes the Big Data Game with Kinesis: Leaves Competition Speechless (For Now)

It’s likely that neither big data vendors nor developers slept well last night because they were all probably thinking about Kinesis, Amazon’s fully managed service for real-time processing of streaming data at massive scale (like that generated by Twitter and the Internet of Things). It was introduced in Las Vegas yesterday at Amazon’s re:Invent Conference and brought on the same kind of enthusiasm among developers as the first iPhone brought to consumers.

Your Car Is a Data Platform, What Can It Tell About You?

Information Management, Your Car Is A Data Platform, What Can It Tell Us About You?We’ve all heard about the Internet of things. We know you can use Nest to control your thermostat from your iPhone, so if you forgot to turn the heat down when you left for work you can do it from the office. And then there’s Jawbone that monitors your movement -- forget exercise, if you want to set it up to turn on your coffeemaker as soon as you start moving in the morning, it can do that too. And then there’s the app I’m waiting for: I want to be able to add money to a parking meter from a restaurant, so I don’t have to leave the table just as a conversation becomes engaging.

Mobile Device e-Discovery: Can Your iPhone Keep a Secret?

Information Management, Mobile Device e-Discovery: Can Your iPhone Keep a Secret?Your email is blowing up. Your phone is buzzing. You are not even done with your commute and you've already lined up two conference calls, a chat session and a cooperative exchange of Google Docs. You know you are forgetting something so you flip to your to-do list app, then your calendar, then back to your to-do list.

WebRTC Video Decision Delayed, Stalling Development

A closely followed Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meeting in Vancouver last week took an anticlimactic and mysterious turn. Committee members failed to reach a consensus on an important component of the new web-based communications standards called WebRTC.

RTC stands for Real Time Communication. The stakes are high because several large technology vendors with large communications businesses went into the meeting jostling for position of their respective video streaming technologies.

DataStax Gets It: Help Developers Do What They Love - Win the Business

Gone are the days when software vendors win business by wining and dining C-level execs and presenting them with glossy request for proposal responses that took months to prepare.

The Price of Not Starting Right: The Affordable Care Act Project

The Price of Not Starting Right: The Affordable Care Act ProjectThe Paid Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA a.k.a. Obamacare) political pinball is sure to bounce around for some time, focused mainly on the "who" and "why" behind what happened to the system and its web portal, and doing some damage to various reputations in and out of government.

Peel back that layer of the situation, however, and we can see that the “what,” “how,” and “when” of the problems could have some valuable -- and apolitical -- lessons for major government systems efforts … a cautionary tale might be a better word.

Microsoft Abandons Controversial Employee Review System

Microsoft is abandoning its controversial stack ranking employee review and compensation system, which encourages workers to compete rather than work collaboratively. The move comes just months before Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer plans to retire.

If you were cynical, you might think the review system and Ballmer's imminent departure are related. Is Ballmer unwilling to review his controversial 13-year tenure at the helm? Maybe, but it is probably pushing the analysis of this change a little too far.
