SINGAPORE, 6 February 2014 - Social media, big data analytics, OTT,
multi-platform screening and CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) have been cited in
various industry reports as some of the key trends to watch in 2014. These
trends are fuelled by a steep increase in consumption of data and
entertainment on mobile devices, with mobile data traffic in Asia Pacific
expected to exceed the rest of the world by 2017.
End-users now seek reliable and seamless services on the go; and the industry
is responding with a proliferation of cutting-edge solutions such as business
analytics, cloud services, social TV, and second/multi screens that help

Apple’s iPad announcement is big news. It’s a robust tablet form factor
that is a half-inch thick and weighs 1.5 pounds, with a 9.7-inch capacitive
touchscreen IPS LCD display that supports 1024x768 VGA video.
The ebook implementation is everything one would expect. The application can
be downloaded from the App Store and the content is managed by the
“iTunes” platform, so it seamlessly integrates e-book with the other
popular personal content. All iBooks are stored on your Bookshelf. As you
would expect, all books are displayed on a sharp, color screen with many
However, just because iPad has launched and is an impressive device, In-Stat

e-reader segment. The market, which includes e-readers like the Amazon Kindle
and the Sony E-Reader Daily Edition, has firmly est... (more)

(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
2004 was the year that saw the iPod blaze its trail through the technology
heaven, saw Google Inc. go public and double its share price from $100 to
$200, and watched the fortune of RIM (of Blackberry fame) founder Mike
Lazaridis's fortunes grow still further as wireless e-mail became more and
more the rule and not the exception. But what of 2005? Has a wider technology
bounceback begun? At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2005 last week, the
answer seemed to be 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 at CES. But it is far from being the only onion in the stew.
The industry-wide 'return of technology' has begun.
Even Gates himself acknowledged we stand at the threshhold of ... (more)
ATLANTA, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- S.P.I. Dynamics, Inc.
(http://www.spidynamics.com/), the expert in Web application security, today
announced three of the company's leading researchers will highlight the
latest hacking trends at the upcoming Black Hat 2006 in Las Vegas, Nevada,
August 2 and 3, 2006. This year's Black Hat includes a significant number of
talks focused on Web application security - a clear indicator of the impact
Web applications are having on future trends in security.
Bob Auger, Research & Development Engineer for SPI Dynamics, will present
alongside the Company's Co-founder and CTO, Caleb Sima, on the use of RSS and
Atom feeds as methods of hacking client systems. The talk is titled "Zero Day
Subscriptions: Using RSS and Atom Feeds as Attack Delivery Systems," and is
scheduled during the Black Hat conference Thursday, August 3rd from 9:00 a.m.
As in prior years, the first thing I'll cover is what has changed (assuming
that you attended in the past few years). We're back at the Mandalay Bay in
Las Vegas. Near as I can tell, if you have to be in Las Vegas, this is the
place to be. About the only complaint I had last year was that at times there
were lines to get into the elevators to the hotel rooms. Other than that it
was great last year, and I'm expecting the same this year.
Generally, the schedule is the same as last year, when the entire conference
was shifted back by a day from prior years. There is a Welcome Reception on
Monday and the conference doesn't start until Tuesday, ending mid-afternoon
Friday (although there are pre-conference classes on Sunday and Monday). The
one issue with that last year is that a lot of the people who flew in had to
leave fairly early Friday morning to catch their flights... (more)
Enterprise networks are not ready for broad enterprise cloud IT services a la
As network and IT practitioners gathered in Las Vegas (Interop) and tech
thought leaders conveyed on San Diego (Future in Review) the week of May
18th, there was more than a weave of flights running between them related to
the timing and impact of cloud computing on the enterprise IT industry.
It was clear from a multitude of thought leaders, vendors and data center
professionals that today’s networks are not ready for the deployment of
many forms of cloud computing, especially the multi-site enterprise (or
private) cloud. This is both an opportunity and risk for investors and
companies who could prosper or suffer through the coming transformation of

Microsoft Session at Cloud Expo
Many people have wondered what has taken Microsoft so long to update its
lackluster Windows Mobile platform. It finally did it! At the Mobile World
Congress in Barcelona, Microsoft introduced the Windows Phone 7 Series, its
latest operating system for phones. The Software giant’s Windows Mobile has
been getting the short end of the stick and stood no chance to compete with
the likes of iPhones, Blackberries and Android devices. It was also
embarrassingly ignored by apps developers who spearheaded the success of
Apple’s devices and now are bestowing their undivided attention on Android.
Microsoft's mobile system appeared in 13.1 percent of smart phones sold in
the U.S. last year, according to research firm In-Stat making it No. 3 after
Research in Motion’s BlackBerry and the iPhone. But Microsoft has been fast
losing its relevance in ... (more)
I was fortunate to have attended yesterday's SAP Sybase Executive Briefing in
Boston. Also attending were SAP Mentors, Jon Reed and Susan Keohan, "the
workflow goddess." There was a lot covered, but in this report I am going
to focus on what I learned about enterprise mobility there. First, I will
provide some impressions and then drill into some details. Keep in mind
that this is my biased interpretation (i.e. analysis) of what I heard.
The SAP team wanted to communicate that SAP is a different company, with
different management now. They want to leave the slow,
grinding and bureaucratic company and image behind. They want to be
passionate about innovation and technology again. They want to excite the
markets and excite customers with brilliance and innovation. I was given
off-the-record insight into changes in personnel that were intended to
support this ... (more)
