Creating a Return on Investment (ROI) calculation for Enterprise 2.0 and internal social media

Trends in the Living Networks

Additional hardware required. Internal hardware or external hosting. A major challenge for organizations that are considering internal social media initiatives is that a business case including a financial justification is frequently required. To be frank, I think ROI calculations for social initiatives are in most cases a waste of time, because so many of the benefits and costs are unknowable before the initiative.

Forget commodity hardware — now the cloud wants custom chips

David Linthicum

Indeed, since 2012, Intel has had an internal “Just Say Yes” program dedicated to looking for workloads that require custom chips. Intel will produce its own custom chips for cloud providers next year, reports the New York Times. The reason is simple: Intel can easily change chip designs and leave out unwanted core features or alter other properties, such as to gain compute and power optimization for public cloud servers.
