Tuesday was a Big day at HP's Discover, for HP and for me personally. The blogosphere is awash with the news emanating from Las Vegas, and Big Data dominated proceedings, and rightly so. On behalf of my Technology Consulting bretheren we were able to announce a whole new collection of technology consulting services focusd on Big Data. But this time it's different.

Has PRISM Killed the US based Public Cloud Industry?

Blog-post by,

The news, in recent days, is filled with a story about the NSA’s PRISM system which may, or may not, be a BIG DATA application put together with information provided willingly, or not, by some of the biggest names in computing, like Google, Microsoft, Apple and others. As someone who works in IT one of the first thoughts that entered my mind when I heard the news was “there goes the US based public Cloud market.” Let me offer a few reasons why I may have thought that.

A road less travelled: Adapt so you continue to add value!

Recently, I have been writing about where IT is going as a business function. I got a lot of responses to my last post on the topic, “Announcing the death of traditional ERP, shared services, and the owned datacenter,” and I have continued to keep my eye on the market and current trends.

Last week, I met with an architect at a major financial organization. He said that his company is going through major changes as its business and IT strategies have converged.

As you probably know by now, I have the opportunity to talk to many CIOs about cloud and how to take some of their activities to the cloud. As long as we discuss options, concepts, offerings etc. the discussion is animated. But at one moment, THE question pops up. How can we go after this? How do we start?

Private vs. Public Cloud for BI

Blog-post by,

As I mentioned before, migrating to the cloud it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. When migrating to the cloud, there are many options including on-ramping solutions which leverage server templates provided by cloud providers; automation tools to rebuild apps into a provider’s stack; migration attempts to move servers as-is.

Organizational evolution most important when moving to the cloud (not technology)

IT services mindset is critical.

Last week I was talking to public sector clients who are in the process of moving to cloud. We discussed how best to do that, knowing they want to stay vendor independent, and the subject of the service broker was discussed in quite some details. However, technology is not the most difficult aspect of that transition. It’s actually the evolution of the organization. We spend quite some time discussing that aspect of things.

Benefits of Team Collaboration in the Cloud

Blog-post by,

Collaboration is the business activity most transformed by the cloud. Cloud has made all possible. Collaborative documents editing, access from anywhere and anytime, document synchronization when online and many other features are now available with cloud based collaboration tools. This has helped SMBs to efficiently develop, become more efficient and make their employees more productive and happier. Cloud solutions developed for collaboration aim to help individuals and teams interact more and ease online teamwork.

Public v. private cloud is not the issue. It's cloud complexity.

Hybrid delivery becoming the norm for large enterprises.

More and more articles point to the uptake of cloud in enterprises. And, if I believe the interactions I have with CIOs, it is definitely the case. The big question is whether to go private or public cloud. That, in my mind, is the wrong question. I’ve already mentioned several times that “one size does not fit all” when we talk about the cloud.

Companies optimized for the cloud win in today’s market

Blog-post by,

Although enterprises are still in the early stages of adopting Big Data solutions, these technologies are among the fastest-growing cloud-based tools.  The move to cloud computing is challenging the computer industry, and at the heart of this are the Big Data and the built for cloud scalable database platforms that enable it. As demand grows, applications are able to add new computing nodes, and each additional node adds capacity to serve more clients.
