Keeping Document Content Accessible

2014-19-December-Letterpress.jpgWhy do we keep information in document files? Great question. From information theory, we understand that documents contain a lot of redundant content. A given file might exist for only one purpose -- for example, to document the votes approving an internal project.

No Best of Breed in Cloud Computing - Yet

2014-19-December-Best of Breed.jpg

There is no clear winner among cloud computing vendors at the moment. But cloud professional services are growing like no other.

Technology Business Research Inc.’s (TBR) 2H14 cloud customer research reports revealed that users are jumping onto cloud professional services vendors at twice the rate of private and public cloud vendors.

The end users, TBR officials reported this month, want cloud professional services as the entry point for the guidance and education as their enterprises migrate to the cloud. 

Google Price Cuts, Amazon Restructuring Shake Up the Cloud

2014-18-December-shake.jpg

An information technology research firm has announced a decline in its cloud price index (CPI), attributing the fall to price cuts at Google and reductions of up to 43 percent on bandwidth by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

451 Research's Cloud Price Index fell 1.32 percent over the past eight weeks to $2.53 at the start of December due to price cuts of up to 79 percent by Google and the AWS restructuring. The London-based research firm created its cloud pricing index last month.

Technology Can't Ever Solve the Information Management Problem

2014-18-December-Unix.jpgWe’re in an exciting time for information management: cloud storage has become ubiquitous, mobile devices provide a functional (though not yet entirely optimal) experience for end users, disruptive entrants have pushed the envelope, venerable leaders have begun to execute on powerful innovations, and, at least in theory, managing information better seems to be an aspiration of organizations across nearly every vertical. Not to mention the vibrant community of information management practitioners available on the web through Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and more blog sites than you could ever hope to read.

Getting a Grip on Information Governance

Cyberspace is looking a lot like the Wild West these days, with outlaw hackers ready to rob you of your data and the sheriff nearby looking to make sure you’re sticking to the letter of ever-tightening laws.

Are you ready?

A new Forrester Consulting survey report, Governance Takes a Central Role as Enterprises Shift to Mobile, commissioned by Druva, a data protection and governance firm, shows that more and more companies are responding to these pressures by boosting spending on information governance (IG) and adopting new systems to better-manage data.

New Alliance to Big Providers: Share the Cloud

Smaller providers are tired of big players monopolizing the cloud — and now they are banding together to do something about it.

Intent on balancing out a market they claim is unfairly dominated by large public cloud providers, the newly formed Open Cloud Alliance (OCA) claims it has a strategy to level the playing field. The group is a network of providers, software vendors and system integrators.

Is Teradata Buying its Way into Big Data Leadership?

Teradata is serious about big data. In fact, when it comes to Hadoop, it wants to be the one-stop shop for its large customer base. Aside from making its existing products more powerful and more capable, it recently strengthened its support partnerships with independent Hadoop distro providers MapR and Cloudera, and signaled a continued commitment to Hortonworks, which in now publicly traded as Nasdaq:HDP.

Today the company announced that it has purchase RainStor, a provider of patented Enterprise archiving solutions around Hadoop.

Is Gmail Google's Way to the Future?

Google wants you to keep your files on Google Drive and for you to spend more time in Gmail. So it's raising its game and your experience to help make that happen.

And this is no small deal for Google. The internet sweetheart is suddenly being squeezed by competition on all sides. On one end, it seems that more and more people are going straight to Amazon when searching for products (ComScore says that Amazon’s desktop search queries were up 47 percent between September 2013 and September 2014), which is hurting Google’s core ad search business. And, on the other end, Facebook is not only beginning to woo mobile marketing dollars away, but it may also be in a better position to leverage video in its News Feed.

Salesforce Connects to SharePoint with Universal File Sharing

2014-17-december-connect.jpg

After more than a year in development — and the inking of a strategic partnership between two companies that never had a lot of nice things to say to each other before last May — Salesforce.com announced the release of Salesforce Files Connect.

The new centralized, universal file-sharing solution offers access to SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2010 and 2013. It will add access to OneDrive for Business in February before moving on to connect with other services.

Open Source Has Won: Now What's Your Strategy?

2014-17-December-World-Domination.jpgMany years ago, a friend who is a partner at McKinsey related a story from his years in grad school. He was at an AT&T presentation on Unix, held in a room full of bearded, jean-clad engineers and coders to hear about the wonders of Unix. He was standing in the back of the room in a jacket and tie, next to the other few coat-and-tie-attired attendees, who my friend characterized as IT managers from Fortune 100 companies.

During a break in the talk, one of the F100 folks leaned to another and whispered “I like everything I’ve seen about Unix -- except the people in this room.”

Jump ahead 30 years. Have you ever been to an ApacheCon? It’s like living in the 70s all over again.

2015 Forecast: The Sun is Out for Cloud Computing

2014-16-December-sun-in-cloudy-sky.jpg

The cloud space continues to evolve at an astounding pace. As recently as 12 months ago, we were still educating many clients about what they could achieve with cloud computing.

We tirelessly explained the differences and benefits of options such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). We also debated the suitability of various architectural alternatives, like private, public or hybrid cloud.

While there continues to be some mystique around the use of the cloud, it’s safe to say that many enterprises have successfully adopted it.

The Importance of DocOps in the New Era of Business

Fail quick, fail often, recover quickly.”

This truism of DevOps has redefined the way that companies launch products. By destroying the invisible wall between developers -- the left brain of the business -- and operations, the logical troubleshooters, DevOps has created the ultimate digital product assembly line.

Now other departments are looking to this collaborative, just-in-time, iterative process as a framework for success.
