Where will the cloud computing model of service-based virtualized computing resources for data storage and processing grow next? This is arguably the biggest question facing technology analysts today - and if we knew the answer we could all probably sleep a little more soundly. Before we can answer this question, perhaps we need to break it down and determine what exactly we are really trying to clarify. Are we trying to understand which subset technology or component part of the cloud model is set to grow next? If so then we need to focus our efforts on analysis of Infrastructure (or Platform, or Software) -as-a-Service expansion as compared to Data (or Backup, or Disaster Recovery) -as-a-Service in order to pinpoint the true hotbed of cloud development. Alternatively, we could simply try and make some informed conjecture as to which industry vertical is about grow... (more)

Positive Technology Disruption By @ABridgwater | @CloudExpo [#IoT #Cloud]

The Economic Laws of Positive Technology Disruption The list of ‘new paradigm' technologies that now surrounds us appears to be at an all time high. From cloud computing and Big Data analytics to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today we have to deal with what the industry likes to call ‘paradigm shifts' at every level of IT. This is disruption; of course, we understand that - change is almost always disruptive. But this is positive disruption where we have the ability to change the very nature of our IT asset structure. That is to say, new IT servi... (more)

The Three-Point Big Data Analytics Action Plan By @ABridgwater | @BigDataExpo #BigData

We can reasonably break down the core imperatives of data analytics into three essential areas. Firms that wish to gain the full potential out of engaging in data analytics today are obliged to at least recognize these rudimentary cornerstones as the central building blocks of data intelligence: Prepare Model Automate By way of clarification, there are probably a whole lot more than three steps to consider here - but calling out this threesome is a prudent step in what (for many IT shops) are still early days with technologies such as Hadoop and its wider world of Big Data. Data ... (more)

A ‘Cultural Shift’ to Online Backup By @ABridgwater | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Could we really get ourselves to the point where we regard the cloud layer as our first, primary, default and de facto location for data? The answer is: yes, we do already... although perhaps not all of us have even realized it yet. When we do start to fully appreciate what the cloud computing layer of data storage and application services can really do for us, we will find ourselves almost ‘set free' from our previous notions of how we use the computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones that we regard as our most trusted devices today. How cloud just kind of happened Our user ... (more)

1200 Attendees from 42 Countries Flock to Sybase TechWave 2008

Even the most sceptical observer would be hard pressed to argue that Sybase isn’t making some smart - or at least pretty interesting - moves right now. Bringing in the Sybase 365 division to position the company as the ‘database company with the unique focus on mobile communications’ sets it apart from the crowd. Sybase's 10th annual TechWave user training and solutions conference has this year been staged at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from the August 4-8. Adrian Bridgwater attended to gauge the state of the technology barometer and get a sense for the strength... (more)
