Comdex: The Show that Ate Las Vegas Dies of Anorexia

Comdex Bites the Vegas Dust There won't be a Comdex this year. (Long pause for general chortling and rejoicing as shoemakers everywhere weep.) Industry ennui killed it. The current owners of the biggest money-spinner besides Microsoft ever spawned by the Computer Revolution claim they're "postponing" the thing to "reshape" it, which - according to the old VP of PR for the grand old Comdex, David Kaminer - is polite show talk for the show is over. "If you don't floor it," he said, "you 'postpone' it." The Las Vegas Conventional Center and environs are still expecting Comdex to pay for the space it reserved for November. It's hard to conceive of how much money changed hands and how much technology came to market and how many people made a living because Comdex existed. And Comdex existed because of the pre-PC foresight of a small-time show manager named Shelly Adelson... (more)

Can You Handle the Truth about Enterprise Mobility and Big Data?

Enterprise mobility is not just about extending your office cubicle to the nearby Starbucks.  Nor is it just doing your same job, in the same manner from a remote location.  It is about doing a job in a different and better way.  A way that permits you to be at the point of action, the point of need, and the point where you can have the biggest positive impact on your bottom line without breaking your lines of communication or denying you access to critical information and team members. Enterprise mobility is a way of keeping your connected to your business systems, aggregating mission critical information and business intelligence from dozens of different back end systems (think SAP ERP), using real-time big data analysis (think SAP Hana), and bringing all of this information together, in mobile applications - purpose built for the mobile user.  The Aberdeen Group ...

Cloud vs Cloud

The Battle of the Clouds Aloha!  Welcome ladies and gentleman to the face off of the decade.  The Battle of the Clouds.  In this corner, the up and comer, the phenom that has changed the way IT works, wearing the light shorts – The Cloud!  And in this corner, your reigning champ, born and bred of Mother Nature with unstoppable power, wearing the dark trunks – Storm Clouds! You’ve either read about or lived through the massive storm that hit the Mid-Atlantic coast last week.  And, by the way, if you are going through a loss, damage or worse, I do hope you can recover quickly and wish you the best.   The weather took out power for millions including a Virginia ‘cloud’ datacenter which hosts a number of entertainment and social media sites.  Many folks looking to get thru the candle-lit evenings were without their fix.  While there has been confusion and growing pains ...

More Modernizing Data Protection, Virtualization and Clouds with Certainty

This is a follow-up to a recent post about modernizing data protection and doing more than simply swapping out media or mediums like flat tires on a car as well as part of the Quantum protecting data with certainty event series. As part of a recent 15 city event series sponsored by Quantum (that was a disclosure btw ;) ) titled Virtualization, Cloud and the New Realities for Data Protection that had a theme of strategies and technologies that will help you adapt to a changing IT environment I was asked to present a keynote at the events around Modernizing data protection for cloud, virtual and legacy environments (see earlier and related posts here and here). Since late June (taking July and most of August off) and wrapping up last week, the event series has traveled to Boston, Chicago, Palo Alto, Houston, New York City, Cleveland, Raleigh, Atlanta, Washington DC, San...

The Human Face of Big Data, a Book Review

My copy of the new book The Human Face of Big Data created by Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt arrived yesterday compliments of EMC (the lead sponsor). In addition to EMC, the other sponsors of the book are Cisco, VMware, FedEx, Originate and Tableau software. To say this is a big book would be an understatement, then again, big data is a big topic with a lot of diversity if you open your eyes and think in a pragmatic way, which once you open and see the pages you will see. This is physically a big book (11x 14 inches) with lots of pictures, texts, stories, factoids and thought stimulating information of the many facets and dimensions of big data across 224 pages. While Big Data as a buzzword and industry topic theme might be new, along with some of the related technologies, techniques and focus areas, other as aspects have been around for some time. Big data means ... (more)
