What does that do to your level of trust in the product?

Forrester Names SAP, IBM, SAS, Microsoft Tops in BI

This is your brain on business intelligence.jpg

The functions on business intelligence (BI) suites may have become standardized. But enterprises are still prepared to pay big bucks for products that will give them best-in-class data and insights.

In fact, Forrester maintains, enterprises are competing over the quality of the insights they can draw from their data and the customer experience they can offer customers or clients. The other key differentiator is the ability of those BI suites to integrate with legacy enterprise systems.

Some Free Advice for Search VendorsOver the last few years there has been a very significant increase in the awareness of the value of search.

Look Out Box, EMC Syncplicity, IBM: Could $250M Fill Dropbox's Enterprise Gap?

fill the gap2.jpg

Dropbox wants to be the cloud solution enterprises turn to for online file sharing, but there’s a problem. At many companies, workers are prohibited from accessing the service. “It’s blocked,” were the two words we heard most often this morning when we asked a few dozen people to enter the site from their offices.

This is both a problem and an opportunity for Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO of Dropbox. And if reports are correct, he has a big pile of cash to throw at it.

Is Box Crossing the Chasm?

Box for iPad.jpg

You can bet that Box boss Aaron Levie felt pinch-yourself good yesterday when he discovered that his company’s new iPhone and iPad app was No. 10 on the list of top (free) apps in the App store. It’s worth noting, that as of this writing the app is at No.9

For anyone who doesn’t understand how impressive this is, at that moment, it was more popular than Clash of Clans, Skype for iPad — and it rivaled Netflix. It’s astonishing  when any kind of Enterprise app ever hits the top 50 list, let alone one that was created nine years ago by two guys who hadn’t yet finished college (Levie still hasn’t)  and knew very little about the Enterprise world when they started.

Box claims a “founded in the dorm room” story that contains, within it, a sexy twist. The company’s co-founder, Dylan Smith provided the company with 20k in startup funding which he won gambling online. Both Levie and Smith have yet to hit 30.

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.
