Why Startups Should Not Ignore Big Data

CTOvision

Startup businesses are a risky proposition. This means that if things aren’t done in the most effective way possible, businesses will never make it past the first year. The business plan can often determine whether or not a business gets passed the startup phase of the company. When creating a business plan, owners sometimes skip […].

Three Agile Management Practices for Driving Digital Transformation

Social, Agile and Transformation

When I joined Businessweek ten years ago to lead their digital technology team, I was very surprised that they wanted to develop their own proprietary web applications. Could a magazine owned by a publisher mature a software development practice and deliver new customer experiences? The answer was yes - and as it turns out - many other companies are investing in their software development.

Should 'Made in America' apply to cloud providers?

David Linthicum

Let’s start by acknowledging the elephant in the room: The top three public cloud computing providers are all U.S.-based, based, so enterprises in the United States, and even in most other countries, are facing a natural U.S.-based based monopoly on public cloud computing technology. So, there is a de facto “buy American” cloud provider policy due to the fact that you really can’t do anything else right now. However, a few evolutions are taking place.

Understand the multicloud management trade-off

David Linthicum

One of the trends I’ve been seeing for a while is the use of multiple clouds or multicloud. This typically means having two or three public clouds in the mix that are leveraged at the same time. Sometimes you’re mixing private clouds and traditional systems as well. In some cases even applications and data span two or more public clouds, looking to mix and match cloud services.

Five ERP Onboarding Mistakes to Avoid

True random numbers are here — what that means for data centers

Network World

For many decades, the term “random numbers” meant “pseudo-random numbers” to anyone who thought much about the issue and understood that computers simply were not equipped to produce anything that was truly random. Manufacturers did what they could, grabbing some signals from the likes of mouse movement, keyboard activity, system interrupts, and packet collisions just to get a modest sampling of random data to improve the security of their cryptographic processes.

IDG Contributor Network: Can SD-WANs meet standards requirements?

Network World

Any innovative technology faces a battle of doubt. When Amazon first rolled out AWS, few could imagine servers running in the cloud. Before Salesforce, many thought CRM to be too critical to run as SaaS. I find SD-WANs to be facing a similar battle. It’s inconceivable to many that an SD-WAN could replace MPLS. This is particularly true for security teams. At one recent client, a chemical company, the team was looking to transition from MPLS to SD-WAN.
