"The Beginning of the End of Middleware," Says PeopleSoft CEO

(May 8, 2003) - Speaking at PeopleSoft's own 2003 Leadership Summit this week in Las Vegas, the CEO of PeopleSoft Inc, Craig Conway, told his audience that the i-technology world has reached a historic phase that he characterized as "the beginning of the end of middleware." Since PeopleSoft is the world's leading provider of application software for real-time enterprises and claims that today more than 5,100 organizations in 140 contries currently run its software, Conway's comments have left people guessing what he might mean. . .especially since PeopleSoft has recently aligned itself with IBM's WebSphere family of Java-based middleware products. By making it possible to connect and draw data from its own proprietary applications to and from those of fellow giants like SAP and Oracle, Conway's point is, one assumes, that companies will no longer have to allocate res...

Technology Is Back: CES 2005 Was the Turning-Point

2004 was the year that iPod blazed a trail, that Google Inc. went public and watched its stock double from $100 to $200, and that RIM (of Blackberry fame) founder Mike Lazaridis saw his fortune continue to grow. But what of 2005? Has a more widespread bounceback begun? The signs as CES last week would indicate a resounding "Yes!" As everyone who has not been living in a cave for the past 29 years knows, Microsoft is 100% devoted to changing the world - "Most people are still not in the digital realm," said Bill Gates in his opening keynote. But it is far from being the only onion in the stew. An industry-wide technology bounceback has begun. Even Gates himself acknowledged we stand at the threshhold of the post-PC world: "The PC has a central role to play, in that it's where it all comes together - e-mail, instant messaging; if you want to organize your memories in...

Sybase TechWave 2005 Conference Review

This year TechWave 2005 took place at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. For those of you who didn't make it, the following is a recap of the events, with a couple of thoughts and suggestions thrown in. Sunday, August 21 Test Your Sybase Knowledge Gameshow Four TeamSybase members (Millard Brown, Terry Voth, Mike Nicewarner, and myself) do battle against a team of Sybase employees. Each team took turns answering multiple-choice questions off a Jeopardy-style game board. Fifty percent of the questions were related to Sybase engineering and the rest were from other walks of life. There were two rounds with a tiebreaker question just in case. The audience had handhelds and played along. They had a chance to win some cool prizes (30GB iPods, PSPs, and Optic Nerve Sunglasses were up for grabs) at the end of each round (so to the audience it is really two games). Jonathan Baker (...

MAX 2006 Show Report - Kevin Lynch's Day One Keynote

There's always an inherent danger, for any company getting behind a meta-theme like "revolutionizing how the world engages with ideas and information ­ anytime, anywhere and through any medium," that it has defined a wish rather than a reality. The thousands of developers assembled in the keynote hall of The Sands Expo Center here in Las Vegas are undoubtedly united in a desire to decide for themselves which applies. This morning they got their chance. After a wonderfully upbeat, up-tempo performance by current Las Vegas live-act sensation Blue Man Group, the opening keynote by Senior Vice President and Chief Software Architect Kevin Lynch began. At what he termed "the largest MAX to date," Lynch reminded delegates that there are 300 different team members from Adobe at MAX. Right from the get-go he demoed Acrobat Reader 8, which allowed a chance to mention ColdFusio... (more)

TechWave 2007

This year TechWave 2007 took place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. For those of you who didn't make it, the following is a recap of the events, with a couple of thoughts and suggestions thrown in. Sunday Officially the only thing going on Sunday was conference registration. However, there is a private TeamSybase/Sybase reception on Sunday evening where, among other things, new TeamSybase members are inducted. This year we added one new member: Roland Smith. Photos of the reception - along with all the other photos I've taken at TechWave - are available at http://public.fotki.com/brucearmstrong/techwave/2007/. The quality is a little spotty. I just purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 just for TechWave to get better shots (it's still a compact point and shoot, but it has 10x optical zoom), but it really chews up the battery and I didn't have a spare battery. So some of ... (more)

Cloud Computing & Virtualization - IT's Top Two Topics

Another confirmation that virtualization, cloud computing and service-based application delivery is set to form an integral part of software application development infrastructures in the decade to come is evident from the shape of an IT event in Las Vegas, Nevada, that starts today. Reporting exclusively for SYS-CON's Virtualization Journal, Adrian Bridgwater looks forward to examining real-world integration and implementation of virtualization technologies in this preview of the event. Parallels will be staging its fourth industry summit this week at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas from February 2-4, 2009. Over 1300 attendees have flocked into town, despite the economic meltdown, to learn about what we're told will be the key drivers in the next generation of optimized computing. For those still doubting the fact, this may be proof enough then that ... (more)

Zen and the Art of Network Architecture

"...I'll have one with everything."  That is the possibly recognizable punch-line to an old joke about the Zen master ordering a hot dog.  I am borrowing this as a theme for the on-going transformation of network architecture. Any successful design must follow the functionality required by the end-user. People want to be able to access information, entertainment, work, and all their friends whenever and wherever they happen to be at the time.  While we love to talk about Triple-Play, Quad-Play, and Any-Play, we still see (for the most part) operators building on from a foundation of either Fixed-line, or Cable, or Mobile-wireless. With the pending arrival of  the fourth generation of cellular radio technology, the Mobile Operator will be able to provide bandwidth and service experiences on par with their Fixed/Cable brethren.  But we still have not seen the real sh...
