Integration in the Cloud: Leveraging the Power of Platform as a Service
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses
need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to
make - these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern
forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs,
device integration and Big Data integration. It's important these are unified
together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections
need to be simple to design, adapt and configure. Plus, with the
proliferation of IoT, there is an explosion in the number of devices
requiring interconnection - both in terms of asset monitoring and spatial

This is more like a long Tweet than a short blog entry.
Personal issues aside Mark Hurd was a brilliant CEO for HP and he will be
remembered as one of the greatest CEOs HP ever had. Like the rest of the
world, we were curious and watched him from the beginning. I knew he was off
to a brilliant start when - within days of getting the job - he put together
an internal group of PhD economists specialized in game theory who developed
a system that saved HP billions of dollars in purchases.
Wikipedia defines game theory as "attempts to mathematically capture behavior
in strategic situations, or games, in which an individual's success in making
choices depends on the choices of others."
Hurd got up early every morning watching Armonk like a hawk.

Cloud Expo New York $500 Savings here!
Many enterprises are pursuing cloud computing to reduce costs and speed time
to value, all with lower risk and improved service levels. We've seen many
customers succeed by organizing their transformation into distinct,
manageable phases: a Journey to the Enterprise Cloud.
Service Delivery is an advanced phase of the journey, and provides
elasticity, resiliency, automation and self-service capabilities. When the
journey is planned and executed correctly, enabling these capabilities does
not require upgrades or re-architecting. Instead, meeting these goals is a
natural evolution that builds on the earlier phases by employing the relevant
features and options.

Oracle Keynote at Cloud Expo
Cloud Computing News - Oracle co-president Charles Phillips was supposed to
become CEO of CA - for all its muddied skirts still one of the world's
largest software companies - and then those "soul mates forever" billboards
popped up in New York, Atlanta and San Francisco, exposing his near
decade-long bi-coastal double life with wife and son in the East and a
live-in girlfriend in the West.
Six days after Phillips was forced to admit that a picture of him and his
ex-girlfriend canoodling was hanging over Times Square, CA named board member
and executive chairman Bill McCracken CEO. He's the guy who's been running
the company since John Swainson's reportedly forced retirement was announced
in September. An ex-IBMer and an ex-Swainson pal, it was no secret he really
wanted the job.

RDBMSs are stable and mature products. While there is nothing radically new
on horizon that would challenge Codd's relational theory and related advances

Big Data is quickly overtaking SDN as a key phrase in today’s networking
lingo. And overused already as it may be, it actually has a lot more meaning
and definition compared to SDN. Big Data solutions are designed to work on
lots of data as the name suggests. Of course they have been around forever,
talk to any large bank, credit card company, airline or logistics company and
all of them have had applications running on extremely large databases and
data sets forever. But this is the new Big Data, the one inspired by Hadoop,
MapReduce and friends. High performance compute clusters specifically created
to analyze large amounts of data and reduce it to a form and quantity that
human brains can use in decision making.
What makes today’s Big Data solutions different than its more traditional
large database based applications, beyond the sheer datasets being analyzed,
