Cloud Native Challenges and Opportunities with Continuous Delivery
"They focused too much on developers. They chose a model that would release every two weeks, however they didn’t make changes to the operations model. They didn’t change their release engineering process. Ops teams that were used to changes twice a year, we’re now being told they had to ship software every two weeks. That’s a pretty radical change in process and philosophy."

"One of the important aspects of DevOps is breaking down barriers and providing cross-functional training so everyone feels an equal responsibility for code that’s being released. For most DevOps teams, that means streamlining incident response and instituting all-hands-on-deck on-call rotations. Because when you are trying to create a world of always-on continuous delivery and integration, you need people willing to work increased uptime, any time of day or night."

Event Report - Salesforce Dreamforce 2018 - AI, Apple & Customer 360 - but where is the CRM thought leadership?
"It was the usual mega event for Salesforce, it’s partners and its users. Attendees were optimistic and looking forward on innovation to come in 2019. Good to see the shift towards more neural network-based AI, which at the moment is clearly the AI technology of choice. Good to keep Einstein’s voice efforts cross platform. But details were not shared – where does Salesforce plan to build all these models, where does the data have to be, etc. Good to see what MuleSoft is ultimately about, pulling off Customer 360 – if Salesforce managed to implement this architecture (and get customer to pay for it) – it may justify the princely cost of MuleSoft. To be fair – that is little of concern for Salesforce users, who they want to see value coming form their vendor overall, across the product suite."

"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."

10 Ways To Improve Cloud ERP With AI And Machine Learning
"Cloud ERP platforms need to create and strengthen a self-learning knowledge system that orchestrates AI and machine learning from the shop floor to the top floor and across supplier networks. Having a cloud-based infrastructure that integrates core ERP Web Services, apps, and real-time monitoring to deliver a steady stream of data to AI and machine learning algorithms accelerates how quickly the entire system learns. The Cloud ERP platform integration roadmap needs to include APIs and Web Services to connect with the many suppliers and buyer systems outside the walls of a manufacturer while integrating with legacy ERP systems to aggregate and analyze the decades of data they have generated."

"I want to see how Teradata attorneys can succinctly explain arcane optimization algorithms to a jury. Also how they refute SAP’s considerable prior art when it comes to analytics – their three tier architecture in R/3 which allowed it to support multiple databases and understand how users access certain fields more than others , Business Warehouse going back to 1997, its Business Objects acquisition in 2007 and its Sybase acquisition in 2010 and many other elements. In The New Polymath, in 2010 I had written about work at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Pottsdam which I believe was the genesis for what became HANA. Not saying one side has more merit than the other, but it will mean looking at a lot of documentation to say who developed what and when before the other did."

What’s Next for Google
"With apologies to its front and center positioning of ethics in discussions of its various AI initiatives, the single most important news at Google Next was the announcement of GKE On-Prem. Kubernetes has become a veritable force of nature since Google released it as open source software in mid-2014, but it remains complicated enough to stand up and run that even high end developers are happy to have help managing it. This is the market opportunity that GKE was created in response to, along with AWS’s EKS, Pivotal’s PKS, Microsoft’s AKS, Red Hat’s OpenShift and startups like Heptio. To date, however, there have been clear lines of distinction between on and off premises solutions. Specifically, off premises, managed cloud solutions were limited to their own platforms."
