Enterprise Content Management Isn't Dead - It's Evolving

There’s lots of talk about how Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is dead or dying. Some say it’s a vendor category coined to give a name to bloated, one-size-fits-all software products that eschewed a real understanding of user requirements in favor of a Swiss Army Knife approach that sought to be everything to everybody -- and wound up being truly useful only to a handful.

Others say that it’s a specialist creation, coined by consultants and industry talking heads to make it easier to promote their own expertise, drum up traffic for their blogs, and sell more services to clients.

Yet others say that ECM is a once-useful domain that’s outlived its usefulness. It made sense once upon a time, but the new modes of content creation, sharing and consumption have made it obsolete alongside systems of engagement and record, information lifecycle management and the rest.

Communication Is Key to Continuous Compliance

Compliance is no longer a monthly, or even weekly, task -- it’s something that needs constant evaluation and adjustment. Sources change and applicability of control over data should be under consistent review -- that’s the age of continuous compliance we live in today. One requirement of continuous compliance is ongoing, effective and intelligent communication. There are some ways to help improve communication and ensure your compliance and security teams get the best, most relevant and timely information to keep you secure and compliant -- and remain that way.

Davra Does Internet of Things Data in the Cloud

Startup Davra Networks has launched a cloud services platform to help networking equipment resellers make sense of all of the data potentially streaming from the Internet of Things (IoT).

Called RuBAN, Davra's new cloud service will help connect potential IoT devices to a business intelligence platform that can analyze the data.

Davra CEO Paul Glynn sees wide applications for the product, which can help managers in industries as diverse as transportation, agriculture and telecommunications to monitor and manage their products and services remotely. 

Will Streem(ing) Make Box More Alluring to Enterprises?

Box wants to be the place where enterprises store, sync and share their content. We’re talking all of your content, all of the time, regardless of its format or size.

Today Box’s head honcho, Aaron Levie announced the acquisition of Streem, a YCombinator startup that has developed a means of accessing all of your content stored in the cloud via your desktop.

What’s interesting about Streem is that it has developed StreemFS, a new file system that is supposed to turn the cloud into an extension of your hard drive.

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Will Speak at #xTupleCon14

2014-16-June-steve-wozniak.jpg

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will speak at xTuple's “ultimate user conference” in Norfolk, Va. in October. 

Wozniak, who helped design of Apple's first line of products — the Apple I and II — and influenced the popular Macintosh, will give the opening keynote when the six-day xTupleCon14 opens on Oct. 13 at the downtown Norfolk Marriott Waterside Hotel and Conference Center.

In 1976, Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer, Inc., with Wozniak's Apple I personal computer. The following year, he introduced his Apple II personal computer, featuring a central processing unit, a keyboard, color graphics and a floppy disk drive.

Wozniak is now chief scientist for the in-memory hardware company Fusion-io. He is also the author of a New York Times best-selling autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon, in September 2006 by Norton Publishing.

XTuple, a provider open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has a lifelong affiliation with Apple products, including desktops, MacBooks, iPhones and iPads. Users of the xTuple are three times more likely to be running Apple products than the average business user.

World Cup Data ... Visualized

2014-12-june-world-cup.jpg

As we've noted before, people think in pictures, not Excel spread sheets. The human brain doesn’t react well to seeing millions of lines and rows of data.

And in the age of big data and analytics, where gleaning and reacting to insights faster than the competition can make the difference between winning a market or perishing, avoiding disasters or falling prey — and even saving lives or losing them.

It’s no wonder companies in the data visualization business are booming. Take, for example, Tableau. In just one quarter, the market leader landed 120 deals in excess of $100,000 and added 1,800 new customers. The company also reported that it has exceeded more than 1,000 cumulative customer accounts using Tableau Online for analytics in the cloud.

IBM Boosts Public Sector Muscle, Slashes SoftLayer Prices

IBM is opening two new cloud services data centers for the government and also upped its game in the server space by slashing the prices of multiple cloud services.

Unlike Amazon, Google or Microsoft, which like to boast about cloud service price cuts, IBM takes a different approach and announced the SoftLayer price cuts very, very quietly.

Breaking News: Vishal Sikka Grabs Infosys' Top Job

Did we call it or what?

Vishal Sikka just confirmed via Twitter that he will be leading Infosys into the future.

The Stanford PhD who, up until early last month, was an executive member of SAP’s Board and is widely credited for bringing Guinness World record breaking database SAP HANA to life, has now accepted the challenge of leading Infosys, the $31.1 billion global provider of business consulting, information technology, software engineering and outsourcing to a new level of greatness.

Sikka will be the Infosys’ first non-founder CEO.

Can Dropbox Buy Its Way into the Enterprise?

2014-11-June-IntheDoor.jpgIf you don’t have enough time or talent to build it, maybe you can buy it. At least if you have as much money as Dropbox.

OK, we admit that we’re being a bit sarcastic here, but we actually have enough information to present a pretty good case around Dropbox trying to buy its way into the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) market.

We won’t bore you with all of the details, but consider that last week Dropbox acquired Droptalk and that late yesterday MobileSpan announced that it had been acquired by Dropbox as well. 

Open Source Search Goes Commercial

In early June the open source search business arguably came of age when Elasticsearch closed on a $70M tranche of Series C investment funding. Elasticsearch is supported by both an open source search community and a commercial search business. In November 2012 the company received $10M in a Series A investment funding which was followed by a further $24M in a Series B funding in February 2013 -- making the total of investment funding now $104M.

Series C funding is usually seen as a substantial level of endorsement of the future of the company by the venture capital investment community. The next level, Series D, is seen as a prelude either to an Initial Public Offering or a trade sale.

China Leads the World on the Internet of Things

While US and European machine-to-machine (M2M) technology developers are still banging their collective heads on the wall trying to work out what the Internet of Things (IoT) will be like, who will be developing it and where it will emerge, China is busy forging ahead. 

According to new research released by Europe-based GSMA last night, not only is China outstripping both the US and Europe — but it is doing so with the active and concerted support of its local and national government bodies.

Pivotal's Cloud Foundry Gives Enterprises New Mojo

2014-10-June-paul-maritz.jpg

Enterprise computing needs some new mojo — and if Pivotal CEO Paul Maritz and his crew have their way, it will first be built — and then found — atop their brand of Cloud Foundry.

Bear with us as we explain this because Cloud Foundry is an Apache Open Source project that will soon be governed by a foundation and leveraged by as many as 34 vendors (thus far). Pivotal CF is an enterprise-grade Platform as a Service (PaaS) that EMC and VMware spinoff Pivotal provides. It is powered by Cloud Foundry.

Sound complicated? Just think of Cloud Foundry as the Cloud’s Linux.
