DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @Th...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are t...
Today, we’re at a crossroads. Some companies are choosing to dive into the application economy, while others stand back afraid of the change. It should come as no surprise then that companies that are embracing the application economy are emerging as victorious. That’s because custom...
A growing number of websites allow visitors to log in using a digital identity from a trusted 3rd party -- like Facebook, Microsoft, PayPal, or Google. The fancy term for this is “federated identity,” but most people call it Bring Your Own Identity, or BYOID.
It is a mistake to think we can secure APIs using the same methods and technology that we used to secure the conventional, browser-centric web. Andi Mann from CA Technologies recently pointed out that, at every turn, customers are interacting more and more with businesses through appli...
If you believe as the authors of the new book Code Halos do, that data is the new competitive arena for businesses, then you will want to develop a strategy in order to compete. What might that strategy look like? It may be as simple as, "We believe the better we understand the needs...
Followers of the Enterprise File Share and Sync Market (EFSS) will have noticed a flurry of announcements in the last few weeks. In particular: SAP and OpenText collaborated with Tempo Box; Egnyte outlined it would leverage Google's Storage; Box purchased Stream as well as announcing ...
A recent global survey commissioned by CA Technologies and conducted by Vanson Bourne illustrates how radically the role of IT is changing in today’s business -- and not always to the benefit of IT leaders and staffers. The survey of 1,300 senior IT leaders from large organizations in ...

We are all aware that business needs to change into business 2.0 today – or even some version of business 3.0 if you truly want to start placing new social and semantically-aware labels on the modern business model of today. It sounds simple enough on paper doesn’t it? Bring in and ...
We all know the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, but have you heard the one about Goldie Locks and the three clouds? This tale is playing out throughout the IT marketplace. Goldie Locks – an IT executive for a state government – has once again found herself in a dilemma. “If o...
As infrastructure has grown and mainstream database vendors have tweaked the cloud service model to apply to their own niche, cloud database technology has become an increasingly possible alternative to on-premises databases. Cloud database services offer many of the same benefits of o...
In a move that disrupts the rapidly growing worldwide IT management market for emerging enterprises and departmental/line-of-business customers, CA Technologies on Tuesday announced the availability of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap – a free, feature-rich version of its acclaimed CA Nimsoft M...
I am working on the "State of Enterprise Mobility 2013" survey report this week and wanted to share some of the interesting results. Here is the first question, "How important is B2E (business-to-employee) mobility to your company's success?" End users - 30% stated it has a large to ...

Why should enterprises move data and applications into the cloud? The discussion on cloud strategy is still to this day focused on cost-reduction, primarily featuring economies achieved in infrastructure, platform and even applications. Certainly no one is going to argue that this is a...
For most enterprises, cost savings and increased efficiencies are the primary motivations for making the move to cloud computing. But recent studies from Gartner and other firms have identified concerns over cloud security and data privacy as being the leading barriers to cloud adoptio...
Coraid on Tuesday announced the general availability of its latest and fastest file storage appliance – the Coraid ZX4000. "Public cloud scalability, economics and resilience models are setting a new agenda for IT," said Coraid CEO Kevin Brown. The ZX4000 delivers flash-enhanced perfor...
You can design a great enterprise cloud network, but it will be very restricted if you are in a building that does not support broadband connectivity or mission-critical applications. What good is a multi-gigabit design if your connection to the central office is not fiber? Or redund...
In this article I want to revisit the subject of the 4th dimension as it relates to enterprise mobility and and its importance to many industries and business processes. First, let's review our definition of 3D and 4D. Three dimensional is made up of length, width and height in one c...

I would invite anyone in an IT department buried in demand for mobile apps to first take a look at Google Enterprise, before trying to develop everything yourself. There are many mobile capabilities already available in the Google world which are free to individuals and available free...
There is little argument at this point that the mass adoption of mobile technology and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies by enterprises is a true business technology revolution. At the core, the catalysts driving this revolution are the vast array of mobile devices leveraging soa...

How many advertisements for automobiles today promote the fact their cars are horseless carriages? None! Why? It is an assumption that your automobile will be horseless. The same is happening today with mobile apps. Who would develop a work order management or scheduling system tod...
Although a lot has been talked about becoming a social business, adoption is not universal in enterprises. I have attended IBM's Lotusphere conference many times, but this year was a different experience. The long-familiar yellow Lotus branded signs were missing as the conference was ...
As 2013 gets off the ground and we look at the year ahead, there can no longer be any doubts that cloud computing has caused a paradigm shift in computing. Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the Internet world – and is having an impact on every form of business. Not only is it h...
