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)"

Predicting The Future Of Digital Marketplaces
"Competitive differentiation, buyer retention, buyer acquisition, and social media engagement and the four most common customer-facing challenges marketplaces face today. 39% of marketing execs say that differentiating from competitors is the greatest challenge, followed by buyer retention (32%), buyer acquisition (29%) and effective social media campaigns (29%) Further validation that today’s digital marketplaces are enabling greater digital transformation through personalization is found in just 22% of respondents said customer experience is a challenge."

Google’s arrogance on display: burying the lede about its Google+ vulnerability and shutdown
"Google announced it would shut down its social network Google+ yesterday after revealing that it had given outside developers access to private data. At least that’s how the media is describing it. Google’s own statement just buries the news amid a whole bunch of other announcements, like a radioactive pellet"

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."

Google Needs To Make Machine Learning Their Growth Fuel
"Google needs new AI- and machine learning-driven businesses that have lower Total Acquisition Costs (TAC) to offset the rising acquisition costs of their ad and search businesses. CB Insights found Google is experiencing rising TAC in their core ad and search businesses. With the strategic shift to mobile, Google will see TAC escalate even further. Their greatest potential for growth is infusing greater contextual intelligence and knowledge across the entire series of companies that comprise Alphabet, shown in the graphic below."

No more tin ear. Google plays the game
"In my twenties I was hard work: I was too clever by half. I questioned everything. I had problems with authority. I made things harder for myself and others than I needed to, or should have done. Hopefully I have mellowed a bit, but these characteristics certainly defined me then.

One of my bosses, a guy called Ambrose McNevin, once took me to one side, and gave me some excellent advice.

The cloud continues to grow in leaps and bounds, but it’s still AWS’s world
"That is not to say that Microsoft and Google are not growing too. In fact, Canalys had Microsoft growing at an 89 percent clip last quarter while Google grew an amazing 108 percent. It’s always important to point out that it’s easier to grow from a small number to a bigger number than it is to grow from a big number to a bigger number. Yet AWS continues to defy that idea and grow anyway, although not quite at the rate of its competitors."

Kubernetes stands at an important inflection point
"One thing everyone seemed to recognize at KubeCon was that in spite of the head start and early successes, there remains much work to be done, many issues to resolve. The companies using it today mostly still fall under the early adopter moniker. This remains true even though there are some full blown enterprise implementations like CERN, the European physics organization, which has spun up 210 Kubernetes clusters or JD.com, the Chinese Internet shopping giant, which has 20K servers running Kubernetes with the largest cluster consisting of over 5000 servers. Still, it’s fair to say that most companies aren’t that far along yet."

And that’s what 5G is not about, but about bringing networks to 21st century standard in throughput (high def video), latency (<1 ms) and density (over 100+ devices on a square meter). These are all key specs to enable a more human (visual), a more thing driven (density) and a more AI driven (latency) next generation application for enterprises, all very hard to do on current 4G / 4G LTE standards."

"The amount of applications and Internet of Things (IoT) devices in the enterprise means there’s no shortage of data. But many datasets can’t be used for deep learning because they’re too small, not structured, or untrustworthy. If machine learning models are trained with incomplete, unstructured, or inaccurate data, they can’t arrive at the best outcomes at best, and can even actively hurt the underlying application they are being applied to."

What Role Should Colleges Play in Workplace Training?
"Data doesn’t support this either, according to a recent article in The Street. “When it comes to middle-skills jobs, Fuller found no difference in performance among people with and without a college degree. Yet employers still look for people with college degrees, who only make up about one-third of the entire workforce.” Fuller explains it with a fishing metaphor. “When you start up-credentialing your jobs you’re doing the equivalent of rowing your boat over to this tightly crowded part of the pond. Maybe there are fish elsewhere.”

Why the Cloud Wars Will Be Good for Your Business
"That said, over time, a fractured market benefits no one. Users have to manage the complexity and providers are limited in reach. So we will likely see the pendulum continue to swing as the market ultimately navigates towards an equilibrium point. Of course, when we get to that point, the discussion will shift to supplier management strategies, which will again strengthen the case for a multi-cloud future."

"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)."

So about this Dell digital transformation story. Pivots. - by @monkchips
"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."

The Hidden Biases that Can Lurk in Artificial Intelligence Systems
"Artificial intelligence and “automated decision-making” systems are being implemented in many crucial real-world settings, cutting humans out of the decisions that these systems are making. But how sure are we that the decisions they arrive at are fundamentally correct?

Researchers are finding a startling number cases of human bias that have crept into AI models and decision-making algorithms, which in turn can unwittingly lead to discriminatory practices on the part of companies and governments deploying these systems."

News Analysis - Apple & SAP Partner to Revolutionize Work on iPhone & iPad - by @hogermu
"Always good to see SAP talk HCP, a product that in my view has not gotten the attention, keynote time, marketing spend etc. that it deserves, as it is vital for both customers and SAP to e.g. create partnerships like this and build innovative next generation applications. Without a good competitive platform SAP won’t be able to do well in enterprise software."

Envisioning Envision: Microsoft is once again at a crossroads…maybe - by @pgreenbe
"Different. That’s probably the best way to, umm, envision Envision; and — to be fair — do it with a clear lens. To set the stage, I’m going to tell you something that I rarely say. I’m not entirely sure what I think about this conference, as a conference “reviewer” and I’m not entirely sure as an analyst what I think about Microsoft’s thinking. This is not a position I’m normally in. But when this is done, you’ll understand why I say that."

Google’s Alphabet Transition Has Been Tougher Than A-B-C
"And none of the companies has birthed the start of a business model as perfect or profitable as Google’s search business. All the non-Google companies taken together generated just $448 million in revenue in 2015, mostly from sales of the Nest thermostat and Google Fiber. That’s enough to cause some analysts to pronounce the restructure a failure. “In six months, you can say whether the structure has made things better—it has either made them worse or hasn’t change things at all,” says independent IT analyst Rob Enderle."

Event Report – Google Google Cloud Platform Next – Key Offerings for (some of) the enterprise - by @holgermu
"We had the chance to talk to Google customers Coca-Cola, Snapchat and Spotify. All have very different use cases, Snapchat has been native to Google from the very start, Spotify just choose GCP – mainly for its Analytics / MachineLearning abilities and Coca-Cola built a webscale soccer worldcup picture sharing application. When asked what they would like GCP to improve the mentioned IAM (Spotify), better server farm management (Snapchat) and more partner and SI support (Coca-Cola). Good to see happy customers."

Comparing Software using Peer Reviews - by @mfauscette
"The software buying decision making process can be complex and varies by company. Just by the nature of the process it’s necessary to build a list of potential solutions and then to compare them in some way to a list of business and technical requirements and to each other. Everyone has their own mental model on what a comparison should include but there are ways to facilitate the analysis of the information by presenting it in ways that can be easily consumed."

The Augmented-Reality Enterprise Opportunity
"This year’s CES tech expo catapulted virtual reality into mainstream consciousness. VR clearly has an interesting future ahead, primarily as a consumer-centric gaming and media play. But when I think about the future of work, augmented reality is where the greatest opportunities materialize."

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."

Musings - Google re-organizes - will it be about Alpha or Alphabet Soup? - by @holgermu
"This is an interesting move by the two Google founders that deserves a blog post - especially since Google competitor Microsoft has not chosen the route of splitting the company (against my suggestion - more here). It will give Google a very different operating structure - but will also deliver some interesting benefits"

The Discriminatory Dark Side Of Big Data - by @chirag_mehta
"It has taken a while for the Internet companies to figure out how to safeguard our personal data and they are not even there, but their ability to control the way this data could get used is very questionable. Let’s not forget data does not discriminate, people do. We should not shy away from these issues but should collaboratively work hard to highlight and amplify what these issues might be and address them as opposed to blame technology to be evil."

Supreme Court Refuses To Decide If APIs Are Copyrightable
ugh. "The U.S. Supreme Court has denied an appeal from Google in its ongoing legal battle with Oracle over software copyright. The move means that the search giant, which argues that its reliance on Oracle's software development tools falls under fair use, must go back and try to sway the lower courts."

Event Report - Google I/O - Google wants developers to first & foremost build more Android apps
"A new, unique content selection by Google for I/O. Speaking with repeat attendees they were not ‘blown’ away, citing a lack of exciting announcements compared to previous editions. But when speaking to Android developers, they found the event very useful as they were able to capture significant insights and even get some hands on experience."

First Take - Google I/O Day #1 Keynote - it is all about Android - by @holgermu
"A good start to Google I/O – which was more Android centric than ever (or I can recall). In previous years we had search, the Chrome vs Android story, moonshot projects etc. – this year it was all about Android, and the Android developer to build more Android apps. That message came across and was well received by the audience, which is mostly… developers."

What Google I/O Was About - by @sogrady
"There were other technologies discussed at Google I/O this week, but more so than in years past this was an Android show. So much so that even non-Android projects were either a derivative of Android (Brillo), impacted Android applications (Chrome Custom Tabs) or run on top of the mobile operating system (Photos). Which tells us that Google, like the rest of the industry, believes that this is a mobile world, and we’re just living in it. Which is neither news nor interesting. What is worth noting is precisely how Google is attacking this market."

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."
