The State Of Cloud Business Intelligence, 2019
"An all-time high 48% of organizations say cloud BI is either “critical” or “very important” to their operations in 2019. Organizations have more confidence in cloud BI than ever before, according to the study’s results. 2019 is seeing a sharp upturn in cloud BI’s importance, driven by the trust and credibility organizations have for accessing, analyzing and storing sensitive company data on cloud platforms running BI applications."

Why Oracle’s Government Legal Battles Matter for Customers
"We are already seeing employees in the technology sector not wanting to work with the federal government or anyone else that they perceive to be part of the social justice problem. Employees are exerting pressure on executive management to forego government contracts that could be used to support issues with which they do not agree, like a boarder wall or military defense. This type of issue could impact Oracle with respect to hiring talent — and customers could also get pressure to no longer do business with Oracle."

Event Report - AWS reinvent 2018 - Push, push - AI and hardware
"On the concern side, the AWS portfolio is broader and deeper than ever before. AWS keeps staying with the Chinese menu philosophy, and it means massive choice… but staying with the analogy, when a Chinese restaurant adds a full menu every year, even the most loyal customers will have a hard time to keep an overview of the menu – and manage to repeat-order the same dishes (aka products) at the next visit (aka implementation project)"

Event Report - AWS reInvent 2017 - AWS grows and grows...
"One of the emerging concerns is around Machine Learning. Expectations that AWS may announces its own neural network and compete with Google’s TensorFlow seem unlikely to happen at this point. Who would have thought that AWS would enter multiple partnerships with Seattle neighbor Microsoft on Machine Learning? The risks for AWS are tangible, if any other IaaS vendor can show faster, cheaper and better Machine Learning performance, it will create a magnetic effect on data. And with data goes load, not to mention that Machine Learning itself creates a lot of load. And load is the mother milk of IaaS vendors success."

What is the Difference Between an Application and a Platform and Why it Matters?
"Unfortunately, there are a number of reasons why SaaS vendors struggle to make the transition to platform vendors. First, it time-consuming and resource intensive. While investing in a platform and its associated services open up an opportunity to clean up technical debt, fixing architectural issues “under the covers” are typically less exciting that new features that generate more excitement from customers, partners and analysts."

Oracle could be feeling cloud transition growing pains
"“Generally speaking, when a company chooses to reduce the amount of financial detail it shares on its key strategic initiatives, that is not a good sign. I think one of the justifications put forward is that is becoming difficult to differentiate between cloud and non-cloud revenues. If that is indeed what Oracle is claiming, I have a hard time buying into that argument. Its competitors are all moving in the opposite direction,” he said."

Kubernetes won – so now what?
"For many enterprises AWS Lambda will be the the main on-ramp for a more modular style of development in the shape of function-based programming. Serverless abstracts all the gorp, so developers don’t need to worry about container or VM configuration, and can instead focus on writing code. Lambda is making massive inroads at enterprises and startups alike, but I would argue Kubernetes has plenty of runway ahead. One size never fits all in IT, and many enterprises like to manage things, whether they admit it or not. When you get outside the tech insider beltway, there’s plenty of on premise IT and applications to manage. Of course mainframes have been called “dead technology walking” since forever. We’ll see hybrids."

NetSuite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: What It Means for Customers
"But now, at NetSuite’s customer conference last month, NetSuite has announced its plans to migrate its application suite to OCI.

The fact that Oracle now owns NetSuite does not take away from the significance of this announcement. Although NetSuite has always been built on Oracle’s database, it has only been using the database for physical storage. (Salesforce takes a similar approach.) NetSuite built all of its administration and provisioning tools, including multitenant management, on top of the database. Although Oracle is currently in process of moving its Fusion customers to OCI, the move by NetSuite is a much larger workload—with tens of thousands of customer instances to migrate. If NetSuite and Oracle can accomplish this migration—and NetSuite executives repeatedly assured us that it will—it will be a major proof case establishing OCI as a platform for cloud ISVs."

An additional 20% are predicted to be private-cloud-based followed by another 22% running on hybrid cloud platforms by 2020. On-premise workloads are predicted to shrink from 37% today to 27% of all workloads by 2020."

The Commodity Container Story - by @fintanr
"This actually raises one of the thornier questions around using bleeding edge software such as Kubernetes. Enterprises, even the most forward looking, are somewhat conservative – and as such are generally going to be running at least one release behind (in areas such as operating systems we frequently see upgrades, beyond security patches, running out at least 18 months and beyond). There is a reason long term support is a lucrative source of revenue for vendors."

But if their revenue streams begin to be threatened will the model of openly publishing research and contributing to various projects change?"

Having said two years ago that it would reach $20bn in cloud revenues by 2018 it actually breezed through that mark this year. Azure revenues grew 90% during the quarter. Microsoft’s Office 365 growth rates have now fallen to 42%, but that’s on a sizeable customer base – 120m active users. Microsoft has also now the subscription corner, driving more revenue from Office 365 than traditional licensing."

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."

Cloud Native Technologies in the Fortune 100 - by @fintanr
"Container usage, which, at its most basic level ostensibly maps to developers using Docker, is running at 71% across Fortune 100 companies. Kubernetes usage is running in some form at 54%, and Cloud Foundry usage is at 50%. In terms of public references with commercial suppliers Cloud Foundry leads the way, with twelve of the Fortune 100 publicly stating they are using Cloud Foundry, Docker and Kubernetes both have two public references. It is important to note that while public references are an interesting proxy, they are but the tip of the iceberg and in our conversations we hear of substantially more usage of the gambit of cloud native technologies."

Pivotal Container Service – A Quick Analysis - by @krishnan
"One way to compete is to highlight the technical strength of CloudFoundry platform against Kubernetes and find a way to sell into enterprise accounts. But the momentum in Kubernetes is too strong for Pivotal to spend their sales cycles fighting Kubernetes. A smarter move is to support Kubernetes and add a layer of abstraction to hide its complexities. This is exactly what Pivotal is trying to achieve with this announcement. The key thing to notice here is BOSH as the glue to Kubernetes world (more about it later)."

"How do VMware and Pivotal begin to mesh? How does RSA become a big data company? These are gnarly questions in their own right, and of course public cloud isn’t going away. Dell, as an infrastructure company itself, isn’t in a position to simply cede infrastructure to AWS, as Salesforce and Heroku can. Dell needs to be in the cloud infrastructure game, and as things stand it simply isn’t. Microsoft is there, Google is pushing hard, Oracle has stepped up dramatically in cloud of late. IBM acquired SoftLayer, but is now focusing on platform services to move up the stack."

Oracle is going to need a similar perception change if it really wants to change the game in terms of engineering-led adoption."

But then, something is being written right now that will supplant Kubernetes. If we’re not running our own environments in house, operations disposability become increasingly realistic.

The Google Trends chart at the top of the page shows growing interest in GraphQL and gRPC – GraphQL is blue. GraphQL maps to external consumption of APIs, with gRPC for internal. They’re both clearly spiking in interest."

To paraphrase the “infrastructure as a product” mantra that we heard from the team at OpenAI, your big data infrastructure needs to be self-service and easily extendable. We have noted in the past that your big data infrastructure is just dial tone. The ability of your team to use it efficiently is far more important."

It is likely that the S3 billing system (my speculation) is using S3, too – creating a potential recursive dependency. Needless to say – these systems should be isolated."

"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."

Event Report - AWS re-Invent - AWS lobbies for the enterprise - DB and IoT are the cheese - by @holgermu
"On the concern side we see that AWS needs to find new ways to distribute knowledge, partnership with SIs are only one path, It's tough for anyone to stay on top of the innovation and the Venetian / Sands is bursting at the seams. And AWS needs to reach more of a enterprise audience - beyond the traditional developer audience of re-Invent conferences."

Why Amazon wins | Innovate the core, innovate to transform - by @bhc3
"Amazon provides a powerful example of how companies should approach their innovation portfolios. Despite claims that sustaining innovations are a recipe for mediocrity, Amazon has shown there’s plenty of value innovating on your core. What aids Amazon in this case is a clear mission, a sense of what they want to accomplish and a CEO who continually acts on it."

Is Learning To Code Becoming Business-Critical? - by @mgboydcom
"What is becoming important now, is that for management to truly understand what “digital transformation” means for their business and industry — to be able to understand and pre-empt opportunities in data science, real-time feedback, continuous delivery and customer-centric product design — will at some point require a knowledge of coding and a solid overview of distributed architecture design."

Event Report - VMware VMworld 2015 - VMware stays the course - executes - progresses on fight for long term relevance - by @holgermu
"What we know from VMware customers is that the partner approach to public cloud is not working, contracts, costs and SLAs need to be negotiated separately across geographic regions (as there is no global partner) and that is less attractive than negotiating with the public cloud vendors. But no vendor knows better what enterprises run, leveraging that know how will require (IMHO) more VMware data centers."

Leapfrogging AWS and Winning the Cloud War - by @alexwilliams
"The cloud computing infrastructure and platform market is expected to be a $43 billion market by 2018 and account for 11 percent of enterprise IT spending. At this point in the war, we can say that AWS is the winner of the cloud infrastructure market segment only. The platform market (and what I believe is the more lucrative segment) is still up for grabs"

News Analyis - NetSuite announced Cloud Alliance with Microsoft - by @holgermu
"At NetSuite’s user conference SuiteWorld in San Jose, CEO Zach Nelson announced a partnership with Microsoft. Satya Nadella was at hand (via pre-recorded video, I guess he is busy in Chicago at Microsoft Ignite) to comment on the partnership, too. The announcement came as a surprise, as in general NetSuite has been seen (maybe wrongely) to be in Oracle’s’ back pocket technology wise."

Progress Report - Oracle Cloud makes progress - but key work remains in the cellar - by @holgermu
"No questions Oracle is making a lot of progress with its cloud products. And Oracle is doing a great job at making them leverage each other (I would love to see the dependency diagrams) – while making sure they have a standalone business benefit as a singular product. Oracle is also more granular than other vendors with an enterprise software or hardware background moving to the cloud, but Oracle has to make sure the offerings don’t get too complex and remain easy to understand, market and sell, later implement and operate."

Event Report - AWS pushes the platform with Analytics and Storage [From the Fences] - by @holgermu
"AWS is holding their kickoff to the by now traditional worldwide AWS Summit conference tour. And as in the last years Amazon kicked the event series off in San Francisco. Given that the April timing is almost half a year away from AWS’s yearly re-invent conference in Las Vegas, it is a key update time for AWS. And a key update time it was – with almost as many press release and blog posts as re-invent, quite a challenge to sort through the news. "

News Analysis - VMware makes progress towards the (hybrid) cloud - now let's watch the adoption - by @holgermu
"Holger takes apart another press release..."VMware seems to have made February the month of the cloud and is promising 28 days of Cloud Insight (see more here). VMware execs must be pretty confident that they have enough material – as they did not even include the recently (well last week) announced partnership with Google (more here). So let’s dissect the press release from February 2nd 2015 that kicked off a webinar series lead by VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger and CTO Ben Fathi."
