Apple iPad Impressive, but Kindle Not Dead Yet

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 personalization options. However, just because iPad has launched and is an impressive device, In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com) cautions individuals who are quick to write off the e-reader segment. The market, which includes e-readers like the Amazon Kindle and the Sony E-Reader Daily Edition, has firmly est... (more)

"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...

Has the Technology Bounceback Begun?

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)

Welcome to TechWave 2008!

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)

Today's Networks Not Yet Ready for Enterprise Cloud

Enterprise networks are not ready for broad enterprise cloud IT services a la Nicholas Carr. 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 IT. In between two panels I caught plenty of hallway conversations about the potential victors of ITs coming transformation; ... (more)

Microsoft Angles for a Serious Comeback in the Mobile Game

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)

Report on the SAP Sybase Executive Briefing on August 19th

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 ...
