The Continued Failure of Risk Management Practices

Risk management is not about avoiding failure -- it is about achieving success.

The ERM Initiative at North Carolina State University, led by Mark Beasley, has published its sixth report on the state of risk management. I saw the first report in 2010 and frankly, not much has changed.

2015-03-March-Creation-of-Adam.jpg

A colleague who works in email migration compares the Office 365 migration process to the Book of Genesis, although he breaks the journey down into four days instead of seven: 

  • Day 1: Plan, Plan, Plan
  • Day 2: User Creation and Configuration
  • Day 3: Email Configuration and Migration
  • Day 4: Configuration and Migration of other Services including SharePoint, OneDrive, Lync, Yammer

Microsoft Confirms 'Dramatic Refactoring' of Windows Server

During a Twitter-hosted tweet jam today, Microsoft’s lead architect for Windows Server, Jeffrey Snover, acknowledged what he called “crazy innovation” happening with his key product. In response to a question from CMSWire, Snover told the crowd that his team was “working on a dramatic refactoring of the server.”

Though Snover declined to provide many further details, the question involved a specific evolutionary path which both Snover and the jam’s co-host, Azure technical fellow Mark Russinovich, skillfully refrained from denying.

Microsoft may be steering Windows Server away from its traditional role as a provider of monolithic applications on a desktop — toward a radically different scheme much more similar to what’s being done in recent months with Linux and Docker.

10 Years in Cyberspace Security

2015-03-March-Secure.jpg

Ten years ago, I wrote a paper on the future of cyberspace. In it, I pointed to three areas that we needed to address to make cyberspace safe for information sharing: establishing strong cyber-trust, enabling secure mobility and striking a balance between security and privacy rights.

So much has changed since then. Or has it?

Kofax Focuses on Customer Communication with $19.5M Buy

Kofax, an Irvine, Calif.-based financial technology company, just spent $19.5 million to acquire Aia, a customer communications management vendor based in The Netherlands. 

Kofax will integrate Aia’s software into its TotalAgility platform. It will also continue to offer the product on a standalone basis. 

Kofax claims the acquisition will strengthen its platform and give it a competitive edge.

The IoT is Useless - Unless You Fix Your Data Problems [Infographic]

Research from ParStream shows the vast majority of businesses are struggling to optimize and take useful insights from all the information the Internet of Things (IoT) provides. Not too surprising, since ParStream is a provider of IoT analytics.

But the study nonetheless shines a spotlight on a problem. Almost all organizations (96 percent) still face challenges with their IoT projects. More than two-thirds of those polled do not have quantifiable metrics to assess the success or failure of their projects, and only eight percent are making full use of their IoT data. About 17 percent capture and store IoT data, but do nothing with it.

HP Admits Defeat, Acquires Competitor Aruba Networks

HP today announced its intention to purchase Aruba Networks, its key competitor in the emerging field of wireless network manageability for smaller businesses, in an all-cash transaction deal valued at $3 billion in equity. The move brings easily the most innovative system for self-provisioning of wireless networks by non-professionals under the HP banner.

HP’s statement that the deal would provide it with tools that “complement” its existing product line, is a tacit admission that its 2014 effort to achieve parity with Aruba in this field was not all that successful.

HP and Oracle: 2 Big Fish Play Nice Together

2015-27-february-2-fish-playing-nice.jpg

Sometimes the big boys play nice with one another, like Adobe and SAP.

This week, HP and Oracle are playing nice -- or at least their technologies are.

This is the tech world, after all, and vendors realize their customers use other vendors here and there.

HP is trying to capitalize on this with its new pre-engineered solution designed to help enterprises move their Oracle application workloads in the cloud.

It continues a tech relationship that began with Oracle in the 1980s.

"This capability can benefit most Oracle clients that are currently running E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft or Siebel, so the base of clients that can benefit from this pre-packaged solution by HP is very large," said Robert Hildenbrand, vice president of worldwide Oracle Applications Services for HP Enterprise Services.

Digital Disruption's Unglamourous Side: Digital Governance

2015-27-February-Mop-Vacuum.jpg

Most global enterprises look to digital transformation as the only way to remain competitive. They also view it as an opportunity to increase multi-channel customer engagement while reducing IT infrastructure costs.

But some enterprises are slow to adapt to today’s technological evolution. While the idea of flying cars is a ways off, the idea of implementing cloud applications and big data analytics shouldn’t be just as far-fetched. A number of reasons explain why some still live in the offline ages, one of the bigger ones being lack of understanding. Why fix what isn't broke?

OpenText Digs into Analytics with B2B Network Integration

OpenText will be focusing a lot on analytics in the next few months, according to recent comments company Mark Barrenechea made in connection with the Actuate acquisition.

Last night, the Waterloo, Ontario-based software company lived up to that promise by announcing that it was adding analytics to its B2B integration network, Trading Grid. According to a statement from OpenText, the new analytics are for companies that are looking for deeper insight into their business processes and the ability to tweak those process with data rather than guesswork.

Big Data Bits: Strata + Hadoop World Rewind

Last week was huge in the booming world of big data with vendors simultaneously chasing market share and sharing innovations on the big stage at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, Calif.

If you have a big data product or service to sell, there may not be a better opportunity. After all, there’s a captive audience that paid big bucks and committed their time to be there. Attendees genuinely want to hear what you have to say. This is why so many vendor announcements are made at, or around, the conference.

Putting forth the best you have to offer while on the big stage, without sounding like an infomercial or slamming the competition seems to challenge some, though. Here’s the secret, strut your best stuff, your grandest vision and your ability to deliver, and the customers you want to win over will see and hear, only you. Knock a competitor, even if you don’t out rightly name them, and there are two of you sharing the spotlight. Is that what you want customers to remember?

Enough said.
