IBM Pumps $1.2B into the Cloud, With SoftLayer at the Core

When IBM called the SoftLayer acquisition a really big deal last year, it wasn’t talking about the price tag. But until now, it was unclear how all the pieces would fit.

Today, IBM answered many of those questions. It's pumping $1.2 billion into its cloud computing business — and putting SoftLayer at its core. It even brought out IBM SoftLayer CEO Lance Crosby, shown left, to "examine servers" at the IBM SoftLayer data center in Dallas today.

Big Data Bits: SAP HANA Propositions IBM Watson + 3 Hookups + 1 OffshootNot everyone’s hot and bothered by IBM Watson, but SAP’s HANA sure is.

The love child of SAP Chairman Hasso Plattner has taken to the company blog to politely coax IBM Ginni Rometty’s Jeopardy-winning cog (this is the term that IBM is beginning to use for cognitive technology) into a relationship.

“Isn't it a no brainer to get Watson to work on HANA?” writes Vijay Vijayasankar, Global Vice President at SAP Labs.

4 Steps to an Effective Enterprise Information Management Business Case

4 Steps to an Effective Enterprise Information Management Business CaseThe most interesting trend I saw last year from the perspective of our content technologies consulting practice was the increase in clients asking us -- rather than vice versa -- to provide them with an enterprise information management (EIM) strategy (rather than an enterprise content management, records management, content management, business process management, e-discovery, mobile, social content, or any combination therein strategy). Two things surprised me about this trend.

What the Internet of Things Can Learn from IBM's Smarter Cities Initiative

Infographic  Smarter Cities. Turning Big Data into Insight.jpg

If you take a step back and look at the bigger picture, it's clear that many of the concepts driving the Internet of Things (IoT) have been around for some time now. It took a while for the penny to drop, but substitute "Smarter Planet" or "Smarter Cities" for IoT in much that has been written and a lot of the reporting could have originated two years ago.

However, that's not to say the IoT and, for example, IBM's Smarter Cities and wider Smarter Planet initiatives are identical. To discover the differences — and similarities — are we turned to Katharine Frase, the Chief Technology Officer with IBM’s Public Sector business. Today we share her understanding of IoT and the ways it relates to Smarter Cities.

Wanna Race? Cloudera Says Impala is Faster than Hive and Proprietary RDMS

Cloudera made a big splash at O'Reilly Strata + Hadoop World 2013 in New York City last October when it announced its Enterprise Data Hub strategy. It wants it to be the place where companies park all of their data, regardless of its format, and from which they can use BI tools, whichever they happen to be.

At the time, some of Cloudera’s Hadoop competitors were a bit taken aback — not by  the idea of an Enterprise Data Hub (MapR suggested it more or less already offered one. Hortonworks sort of ridiculed the term, adding that it preferred the word “platform,” as in Hortonworks Data Platform), but by Cloudera’s insistence that it no longer saw them as competition.

Cloudera CEO Tom Reilly told GigaOm’s Derrick Harris that the company has set its sights on a larger market, the one in which IBM, Pivotal (and we’d guess HP, Teradata and so on) are the established players. So what's new today?

E-Discovery Trends for 2014

E-Discovery Trends for 2014E-discovery matured in the past year, as concepts and themes like predictive coding and early case assessment (ECA) took on more actionable, serious tones.

Increasingly, e-discovery demands involve other electronic information disciplines, like records management, cyber security and corporate compliance. This has brought a larger, more diverse group of stakeholders to the e-discovery table and transformed e-discovery to part of a larger, interwoven information governance (IG) framework.

But the change is challenging, and many organizations are just beginning to apply learned e-discovery principals that can aid defining a comprehensive IG plan.
