Microsoft SQL Server Wins in a Big Data World

In-Memory OLTP Stored Procedures Based on Usage

While Larry Ellison was in the counting house counting all his money (or trophy homes), Microsoft engineers were hard at work spending thousands of hours building SQL Server 2014.

The new platform that’s being released to manufacturing later today will give Oracle users a boatload of reasons to consider ditching, what many consider to be, an overpriced database of a previous era.

Not only that, but it might give those who are considering SAP HANA for its in-memory capabilities and ability to glean insights from analytical and transactional data a reason to pause and look at Microsoft’s new release.

Microsoft May Release Office for iPad

If Microsoft press conferences are always a matter of intense speculation and conjecture, the conference that has been announced for next Thursday (March 27th) in San Francisco will be, by anyone’s standards, an exceptional event -- not least because it will be the first conference hosted by new CEO Satya Nadella. 

Of course, excitement is also being driven by speculation that, finally, Microsoft will be announcing Microsoft Office for iPad. 

SharePoint Online Users Get Unlimited Cloud Storage

Just after Google slashed the price of storage in Google Drive, Microsoft responded. It's giving SharePoint Online a massive cloud storage boost. When all the sniping has been said and done, enterprises and business users are the big winners. 

Alpine Turns Big Data to a Priceless Asset - Fast #GigaOmLive

Data expires

Dare you. Go into your CFO’s office and ask her to quantify the returns on your company’s big data assets. You may very well come back with a bill.

That’s because while data storage is cheap and keeps getting cheaper, it still isn’t free. And usurping value from your “priceless asset” is a whole other story. It takes time, it costs money and requires talent that you may or may not employ or have access to.

Even if you have everything cued up and ready to go, by the time your insights are delivered, they’re probably old and based on only a sample of the available data. Some miraculous competitive advantage, huh?

Google Hits Microsoft Again By Slashing Storage Prices

As we noted yesterday, Google upped the game in the ongoing battle for dominance in the productivity suite space by offering new add-ons as well as cash to users who switch to Google Drive. Now Google is slashing the price of storage on Google Drive. 

CMSWire Survey: Majority of Readers are Well-Paid IT Pros

IT managers make up a bigger share of the CMSWire audience than a year ago, accounting for nearly a third of all visitors, according to our annual salary survey. Respondents also indicated that working with a strong team is more of a concern than "being paid fairly."

The IT professionals accounted for 32 percent of our readers, up 5 percent from the 2013 survey. The next three most popular industry sectors in our 2014 survey were media/marketing (11 percent), professional services (7.5 percent) and financial services (6 percent). 

All four groups are heavy users of the digital marketing, customer experience management, information management and social business technologies that dominate the content on the site.

Google Drive Offers Add-Ons, Cash to Microsoft Office Users

add-ons.jpgOne hit apparently deserves another. Just a few weeks after Microsoft Office dealt another blow in the ongoing slugfest with Google Drive, the Internet giant is fighting back.

In the past three days, Google has made two announcements that are creating new disruptions.  One of them — a new Office 365 to Google Apps referral program — seems specifically designed to annoy Microsoft,  while the  other, the release of third-party add-ons to Google Apps, adds additional functionality.

Enterprise Search Best Bets - Looking For a Sure Thing

During a presentation I gave to the Search track of the IntraTeam event in Copenhagen last month I caused some consternation by suggesting that Best Bets for a search application were a well meaning, but totally misguided approach to improving search performance.

Businesses Should Manage Records - Not 'Keep Everything'

paper and more paper.jpg

Many businesses claim they have been busy over the past two years developing and implementing records and information management strategies. But scratch the surface and you find many of those strategies aren't especially effective.

Blame a lack of employee engagement, a lack of commitment at the management level and the absence of meaningful ways to measure the strengths and weaknesses of these efforts.

Accelerating Growth Drives Big Gains for Tableau Shares

One sure way to keep investors interested in and buying your shares is to put up accelerating revenue growth quarter after quarter. That’s exactly what data visualization solutions specialist Tableau Software did in 2013: top-line growth climbed from 62 percent in the first quarter to 71 percent in the second quarter, accelerated to 90 percent in the third quarter and closed the year with fourth-quarter growth of 95 percent.

Tableau went public last May at $31 a share, opened for trading its first day at $47 and finished 2013 at $68.93. The stock late last month hit a new all-time high of $102.37, up 230 percent from the IPO price.
