5 Key Steps for Migrating SharePoint to the Cloud

5 Key Steps for Migrating SharePoint to the CloudNo longer the latest IT buzzword, cloud computing has become a reality for a growing number of organizations as they seek to reduce IT costs, expand capabilities and improve their networks.

For SharePoint users in particular the cloud offers a way to replace the administrative burden and costs of managing and maintaining on-premises SharePoint platforms. Migrating to the cloud can be somewhat complex since SharePoint migration tools are limited in functionality or non-existent. So while the cloud can certainly reduce administrative burden, getting there requires having a plan that takes into consideration your overall business goals, your existing infrastructure and content, and your user’s needs.

Your Crib Sheet for Microsoft's World of Data

2014-17-April-data-culture

When Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and his data team took the stage in San Francisco on Wednesday to talk about the company’s strategy, they used a few terms that are not yet in the vernacular. But they soon will be.

And while you’re certainly welcome to figure out what they are and, more importantly, what they mean once you hear them, we figure that, at least some of readers, will want to be among the first to use them.

We're Still Playing at Work - and IT Admins are Still Unhappy

2014-16-April-Actual-desk-of-an-office-worker

Knock me over with a feather: A new survey shows a lot of people waste time at the office doing all sorts of things they shouldn't … including playing games, browsing social networks and looking for new jobs. 

Last month, TeamViewer, a provider of remote control and online meeting software, asked 300 IT administrators to list some common behaviors of office workers and explain how those behaviors have affected both IT administration and the company’s bottom line.

The only thing surprising about the resulting IT Admin Behavioral Study is that the company described the results as surprising — and the fact that only 92 percent of IT admins report troublesome habits among office workers using company computers. Are the other 8 percent of IT admins ignorant or just naïve?

The SharePoint Information Governance Problem

The SharePoint Information Governance ProblemIf you have any experience with SharePoint as a document management platform today, you know that most organizations struggle to use it effectively. You’re also likely familiar with the negative impacts that typically result from using SharePoint ineffectively: a proliferation of sites, often on a proliferation of SharePoint versions, with no clear standards on what documents should (and shouldn’t) be stored there or how, no clear guidelines for users on how to classify their documents, little to no capabilities for promoting effective information lifecycle management, little to no end user governance or oversight for things like site and document library structures, security and access settings, or document hygiene, and dozens, hundreds or even thousands of orphaned sites that, taken together, represent a digital landfill of staggering proportions.

Prepping IT for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) hype focuses on how Internet-connected cars, homes, offices, appliances and gadgets will transform how we work, play and live. Sensors in water bottles, Internet-enabled tennis rackets and every kind of conceivable wearable will capture the spotlight.

With these new possibilities, the IoT will create IT resource churn as companies struggle to securely connect a deluge of devices, sensors and objects to the corporate network. According to the IDC, there will be more than 212 billion devices connected to the web by 2020, including more than 30 billion connected autonomous things.

Gartner's 10 Technologies That Make Government Smarter

2014-14-April-SS-TechBlackboard.jpg

You may think it's an oxymoron, but Gartner says it is possible to have a smart government. The temptation to be facetious is pretty strong here, but after initial skepticism, we found that what Gartner was talking about is 10 different technologies that can make government more efficient.

Smart governments, Gartner says, are governments that integrate information, communication and operational technologies across multiple domains, process areas and jurisdictions to generate “sustainable public value.”

By using these emerging technologies, which were identified at the recent Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Dubai, the taxpayers should get some bigger bangs for their bucks.

Dropbox's Enterprise Invasion Starts Now

And there’s a prize inside …

Hey CIO, you can stop pulling out your hair, Dropbox is going to help you gain control of your rogue company files.

There’s no one that can do this the way Dropbox can -- they claim 275 million (passionate) users.

The Benefits of a Search Center of Excellence

All the evidence points to enterprise search teams still being significantly under-resourced. Often only a single part-time manager is responsible for an application widely used throughout the organization every day. One solution is to set up a virtual Search Center of Excellence (SCE). This provides the appropriate level of support by having a number of people around the organization contribute their skills and experience.

Teradata's Big Data Play Changes the Game #TDUniv

2014-07-April-Prague

Everything Teradata does centers around one thing — helping its customers get knowledge and value out of their data. It’s been that way since 1979 and it’s not likely change, even as the kinds of data and the ways of wrangling it do.

“Everyone wants to outsmart the competition,” said Imad Birouty, program marketing manager at Teradata.  That’s why Teradata boasts that it continuously innovates to empower its customers with the technology, analytics and tools they need to make that happen.

Big or fast, structured, unstructured or semi-structured, whether it comes from the Internet of Things (IoT) or an enterprise resource planning system, Teradata gets data and it's got you covered. The company brings logic and order to data, no matter how great its volume, velocity or variability or where it lives, in Hadoop or a data warehouse. Not only that, but flexibility is built into Teradata technologies to accommodate users with varying skill sets and developers with their choices of languages and tools.

This morning at Teradata Universe in Prague, Teradata announces three game-changing innovations that deliver unprecedented analytic power, breakthrough speed for analytics, and cross the big data chasm.

Will EMC Dump Documentum?

Alan Pelz-Sharpe thinks it's time for EMC to get rid of Documentum.

The 451 Research Director has published a well-sourced six page paper making his case, and it’s a good one -- namely, that EMC and EMC IIG (the group that owns Documentum) make neither beautiful music nor buckets of cash working together.

In the paper. he writes:

At 451 Research, we believe it's time for EMC to divorce itself of IIG, a product division that never really fit into EMC as a whole, and has continued to disappoint CEO Joe Tucci. There are two very good companies here, the storage and cloud giant EMC, and the business application wannabe IIG, aka Documentum. Both groups are trying to do the right thing, but find themselves pulling in different directions."

Open Source + EMC Documentum + Cloud = You Tell Us

Shhh ... don’t tell, but the news is out on the web: EMC has released a new Documentum developer edition and it includes open source components. Not just that, but anyone -- not just EMC customers -- can download it for free.

Though it was announced last month in a blog post on EMC's community developer network page, we have yet to see a press release or single news article about it, which is surprising for such a big deal.

You would think EMC would want people to know.

What BeyondRecognition Brings to Document Management

OpenText Wants to Shut the Box

Talk about a roller coaster. The last two weeks have been full of highs and lows for Box co-founder and CEO Aaron Levie.

Last Monday, Box filed its S-1 on its way to an IPO.  Instead of elation, most market watchers reacted with shock — and not the good kind. The Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) company revealed losses of $168 million on revenue of $124 million. Even those who adore Levie called those stats “horrific”.

On Wednesday, Box held its first developers conference boxdev — Levie’s big shot supporters, like former Microsoft Windows’ chief Steven Sinofsky, were there, as well as VC’s  like Jerry Chen of Greylock Partners, Ben Horowitz of Andreessen Horowitz, Mamoon Hamid General Partner — The Social+Capital Partnership, and several others. And the developers building solutions on top of Box’s platform were there for the lovefest as well. Levie was clearly king for a day.

But then Friday Box rival, Dropbox, revealed it had just purchased Readmill, a German company whose collaborative and social features could provide Dropbox with the same functionalities as Box’s Box View, which it announced at boxdev.

And then late last night OpenText, one of the top companies in the Enterprise Information Management space, announced it was seeking preliminary and permanent injunctions halting the sale of Box's products in connection with an ongoing patent infringement lawsuit.

Actionable Analytics: The Key to High Performing Networks
