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.

Who Says 'Big Data Needs to Shrink to Grow'?

Who Says 'Big Data Needs to Shrink to Grow'?While most people were busy nursing their New Year’s Eve hangovers or getting busy with their resolutions on January 1, the New York Times ran a rather interesting headline: "Big Data Shrinks to Grow." We looked at it and said, really? That’s not our experience, but continued to read, anyway.

The Business Case for Information Management

The Business Case for Information ManagementOther than not really understanding what information management is, the single biggest obstacle to information management at most organizations is the lack of a viable business case: if you can’t show your CXOs the money, they’re not going to support your efforts. They have a whole portfolio of projects to choose from that generate revenue, reduce costs or increase margins, so if you can’t articulate how information management does one or more of these, you stand little chance of success.

Her article Customer Experience Management: Art vs. Science captured the balance businesses struggle to find between the technology and the human elements that make up a great customer experience.
