How Workday Bridges the Gap between Amazon and OpenStack
"“What I will strongly recommend is to build something,” Magana advised. “I keep calling it ‘middleware,’ but something that abstracts the back-end platform, your pipeline system, from the way to deliver your application artifact to production. I strongly recommend that.”

It is nothing like Aporeto’s CEO described it: succumbing to the relentless will of a monopolistic beast with its sights set on world domination. If anything, Workday’s strategy is a do-it-yourself program for making global public cloud deployment viable for an organization that is not, and may not ever be, rooted there to begin with."

Nate Silver’s Lessons for Big Data from the Unpredicted Trump Victory
"Data is not interesting for its own sake, but for how it relates to everything else. It’s like a map, you need to see how the data relates to everything else. A coordinate itself doesn’t tell you anything. But as your data set gets larger, you go from five variables to ten, you begin to see an exponential increase in complexity."

How Shell Oil Is Taking DevOps and Agile to the Cutting Edge
"Of course, another important way to measure success in the oil and gas industry is whether or not it complied. For agile and Scrum in the heavily regulated worlds, certainly “compliant” is another definition of “done.”

Measuring cultural changes is always a challenge, but it’s a particular hurdle for such a large multinational."

The Best And Worst Data Stories Of 2016
"It’s time once again to dole out FiveThirtyEight’s Data Awards, our annual (OK, we’ve done it once before) chance to honor those who did remarkably good stuff with data, to shame those who did remarkably bad stuff with data, and to acknowledge the key numbers that help describe what went down over the past year. As always, these are based on the considered analysis of an esteemed panel of judges, by which I mean that I pestered people around the FiveThirtyEight offices until they gave me some suggestions."

Why A Bi-Modal Approach to Digital Transformation Is Just Stupid - by @rwang0
"Like fake news, the over hyped, bi-modal approach to IT and digital transformation is a flawed fallacy perpetuated by ivory tower, non-pragmatic legacy research firms. Lessons learned from successful digital transformation projects emphasize an organizational design comprised of six key virtual or physical teams."

Monday’s Musings: Secrets Behind Building Any AI Driven Smart Service - by @rwang0
"Anticipatory analytics, catalysts, and choices interact to power mass personalization at scale. Anticipatory analytics allow customers to “skate where the puck will be”. Catalysts provide offers or triggers for response. Choices allow customers to make their own decisions. Each individual or machine will have their own experience in contexts depending on identity, historical preferences, and needs at the time."

Mentoring Is a Key to Broadening IT Diversity - podcast from @thenewstack
"The solution to the ongoing issue of diversity is not entirely a pipeline problem, Nampy explained. In particular, it is a problem with the culture of OpenStack and tech overall. “Culture is a big thing. The conversations happening in IRC that are happening are quite frankly not pleasant if you’re a woman. It’s quite male dominated, and conversations can be quite reflective of that. People forget that there are women in the meeting as well. That’s one thing I would like to see cleaned up a bit is the culture.”

How to Avoid Burnout Managing an Open Source Project
"Pearce talked about how “information overload is a learning problem,” which can be addressed by managing the information when we display it for others using visual cues (bullets, paragraphs, and other visual indicators), collecting information into more digestible chunks, and creating schemas"

The Enterprise of the Future Will Need Connected Big Data
"The more nuanced answer is to view microservices as an accelerator or enabler. You are no longer forced to choose exact same data model for each piece of the backend, he clarified. The architecture is much more agile. For example, you can put your products in a graph database, so your customers have access to real-time recommendations, and put finances in a tabular database."

News Analysis: @Adobe @Microsoft Partner Up For Marketing Cloud, Azure and #AI #MSIgnite - by @rwang0
"While Adobe currently uses multiple providers and data centers for its cloud operations, the move to Microsoft Azure will provide a global, Tier-1 environment for work loads as well as security. More importantly, Adobe gains another tool for machine learning. However, access to SQL Server remains questionable as performance issues for SQL Server on Azure remain for heavy transactional apps."

Google’s Diane Greene talks AWS and machine learning at TechCrunch Disrupt - by @ron_miller
"As for competing with AWS and Microsoft, who both offer that same value proposition, she says they can speak to customers on an engineer to engineer level, as well as offer a competitive price and highly efficient data centers. As she pulls the company together in a more organized fashion under her leadership, they can take advantage of these factors to continue growing."

VMworld 2016: VMware Scrambles for the Foundation
"This is the state of affairs in which VMware, its partners, and their mutual customers find themselves, as they prepare to commence VMworld 2016 in Las Vegas this week. While VMware continues to realign itself with the technologies in place in the modern data center — the ones we stack on a daily basis here — it must simultaneously play to an audience that continues to perceive it through a 2006-model lens, where the biggest challenges remain on the order of whether ESX offers greater or less CPU utilization than Hyper-V."

Monday’s Musings: CXOs Seek Enterprise-Grade Mobile Solutions Despite Seven Barriers - by @rwang0
"Constellation’s annual survey of disruptive technologies among leading CXOs consistently places mobile enablement as a top three priority. In the 2016 survey, more than 58 percent of respondents revalidated that mobile enablement was their number one priority. Unfortunately, most CXOs and their organizations often find mobile solutions to lack the enterprise-grade capabilities required to move beyond consumerization."

For Modern Business, it’s ‘DevOps or Die’
"For enterprise infrastructure software, “The purchasing cycle has collapsed and the deployment cycle has collapsed,” Cockcroft agreed. The old ways of upgrading enterprise software, such as an SAP system, was by having a dedicated team come in and spend months doing the upgrade, and then moving on to the next project. This approach was centered around the model of large periodic updates of the software, which may come out about ever 18 – 24 months. But the move to CI/CD means the updates come in smaller chunks, and arrive more frequently."

Bimodal IT: What’s Not to Like?
"“It’s a big fallacy,” he said, referring to how the bimodal concept breaks enterprise IT operations into two distinct camps — those supporting legacy IT applications where change is slow and hampered by corporate policy, and those building new cloud-based apps, where change is driven at a quicker pace by business development."

Top 5 Takeaways From Panorama's 2016 ERP Report - by @erickimberling
"1. Business transformation is still not the top reason for pursuing ERP implementations. Unfortunately, too many organizations still take a myopically flawed approach to their ERP implementations. The #1 reason for selecting a new ERP system was to replace the old system. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it shows that too many companies are replacing systems because they have to – not because they want to pursue a larger business transformation."

News Analysis: Acquisition Brings Salesforce Customers To The Commerce Party - by @rwang0
" Salesforce outbid many competitors to win over Demandware. The acquisition gives Salesforce.com ammo to fend off IBM Smarter Commerce and Hybris deals, despite Hybris mostly being on-premises based. The future of CRM includes commerce because at the end of the day, conversion rate optimization matters. Going forward, Salesforce could include the B2B commerce space adding partners such as Avangate, Cloud Craze, and Digital River as part of the overall industry vertical strategy. Meanwhile, expect Adobe and Microsoft to step up their efforts around B2C and B2B commerce."

Microsoft Plants Bash on Windows, Freaks Everyone Out
"“Hell Freezes Over,” screamed a headline at PC World, anticipating just how stunned the geek world was at Wednesday’s news that Microsoft will provide a Ubuntu Linux binary in upcoming versions of Windows 10. Then Microsoft spent the rest of the week convincing the world that it was true — with videos, tweets, blog posts, and even an outreach effort on Hacker News."

How APIs and Artificial Intelligence Help Democratize Election Information
"“Anything is kind of fair game. It’s all about thinking about what the use case is and finding the API that works for that,” Hathaway said. “It’s interesting to see the speed that AI and machine learning are beginning to operate. It used to take a long time to get a large data set. But with all the deep learning capabilities and advances being made, it’s getting faster and faster in time to value.”
