The End of the InfoPath Era

The End of the InfoPath EraEver since the release of Office 2013 there has been speculation about the future of the information worker toolset, specifically InfoPath and SharePoint Designer. In SharePoint 2010, the go-to tools for information workers trying to build solutions within SharePoint were the browser, Office Applications, SharePoint Designer and InfoPath. Using a combination of these tools we could easily create no code solutions that allowed us to help impact the use of technology within the organization.

Today, some big news from Microsoft clearly states its position on the future of InfoPath. Lets look at some answers to many of the questions we have had about the future of InfoPath in the last year and how we should be using it now.

All Eyes on Box After Reports of Its Not-So-Secret IPO Filing

AaronLevie.jpg

Shhh! Don’t tell anyone, but online file sharing company Box has reportedly (secretly) filed for its IPO.

The story was “broken” by Quartz, reported on by The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, and all but verified by Forbes.

Read on because we have reasons to believe what they’ve written is true. Reasons that no one else seems to have written about thus far.

Will Disruptive Cloud Computing Kill Enterprise Resource Planning?

Outdated technology.jpg

It’s a just about a cliché at this stage to note that cloud computing has been one of the big technology disruptors in recent years. However, according to Gartner, the best — or worst, depending on your perspective — has yet to come. It seems Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications are doomed to legacy status or even the trash bin.

Google, IBM and the Battle for Automated Customer Experience

Google has pinned its acquisition strategy on data, analytics, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). IBM is very focused in data analysis and levering its own AI technology, Watson, into other areas. All signs point to a looming battle between these two technology giants.

EMC Syncplicity's New Mobile Face: Beautiful, Brainy, Impenetrable

Sync_Features.jpg

The enterprise file sync and share market is jam-packed with vendors. If we were to write an article every time one of them makes a tweak, there wouldn’t be enough time to do anything else. So needless to say, we’re not going that route.

However, when one of the vendors that dominates or is disrupting the space does something interesting, we think it’s worth bringing to your attention.

EMC Syncplicity wins time on the center stage today with its new Mobile First strategy. And no, we’re not talking about skinning a desktop experience onto an iPhone or iPad and changing the way the icons look — but literally changing the way you work. Syncplicity’s new app helps you work smarter, more collaboratively and faster.

With $1B Acquisition, OpenText Swimming for Big B2B Integration Fish

Food chain.jpg

We now know OpenText’s Information Exchange portfolio was beefed up when it bought GXS for $1 billion this month. But how much better did it get? Who is OpenText going after — and where are they now in this space?

First things first — this is a serious acquisition for the now 8,200-employee Waterloo, Ontario-based enterprise information management software provider. Its investment into GXS represents about a third of the total price for nearly 50 previous acquisitions during the past 20 years.  

The move is so significant, one industry analyst said, that she now puts OpenText ahead of IBM and TIBCO, two of its major competitors in the B2B integration services space. TIBCO offers “B2B Next,” and IBM has "Sterling B2B Integrator."

"OpenText’s Information Exchange portfolio was somewhat limited in its capabilities, so this acquisition will greatly increase its capabilities, putting it ahead of IBM and TIBCO," Sue Clarke, senior analyst at Ovum Research, told CMSWire.

Is There a Theme to Google's Latest Acquisition Binge?

Human to machine.jpg

Boston Dynamics, Nest and DeepMind. In the past month, Google has gone on yet another acquisition binge, spending at least $4 billion on a trio of startups that seem only loosely connected — robotics, home automation and artificial intelligence, respectively. Is there a central strategy, and what does it mean to the future of Google, the Internet of Things and Customer Experience?

Altiscale has the RX for Hadoop Headaches

Hadoop headache.jpg

Hadoop isn’t easy.

Sure, there are vendors out there who will tell you that it is ... Just take this course or that exam. Work with us side-by-side as we “elephantize” your Enterprise, and presto you’re a pro.

No, you’re not.

Not yet, anyway. Regardless of what any of the 268,000 hits you get when you enter the term “Hadoop training” into Google happens to say. And it’s not that these folks are trying to mislead you — they’ve put their heads and their hearts into encouraging and enabling the widespread adoption of Hadoop.

It’s just that becoming a master at Hadoop (Wikipedia definition: open-source software framework for storage and large scale processing of data-sets on clusters of commodity hardware) takes time, experience, trial and error and enough opportunities to generate a continuous record of success. But that’s not all. As a new technology with a vibrant Open Source community, Hadoop keeps changing, so it’s hard to keep up.
