Time for a Declaration of Independence from Software Vendors?
"The traditional advice companies is that it is best to standardize on a commercial software vendor for the core of the applications portfolio. Nevertheless, we are now seeing some clients push back against this advice and developing more of their own software in-house. In this post, we trace the history of the commercial software industry and why the buyers in some cases are rebelling. We conclude by offering new guidelines on when to choose custom development over packaged solutions."

Is Microsoft’s reality for AI really that different?
"This is an inherently challenging area – especially for a vendor with the history of Microsoft. It is welcome that such a powerful technology company is considering the potential pitfalls and possible solutions to these ethical questions. But it runs the risk of Microsoft being seen to be forcing its own West Coast morality and ethics on the rest of the world. In fact, the company is already experiencing the challenges of ethics itself with some employees wanting to stop providing AI services to the US military. This highlights how what’s right or wrong is very subjective and an area where any corporate should tread carefully."

74% Of Data Breaches Start With Privileged Credential Abuse
"Enterprises who are prioritizing privileged credential security are creating a formidable competitive advantage over their peers, ensuring operations won’t be interrupted by a breach. However, there’s a widening gap between those businesses protected from a breach and the many who aren’t. In quantifying this gap consider the typical U.S.-based enterprise will lose on average $7.91M from a breach, nearly double the global average of $3.68M according to IBM’s 2018 Data Breach Study."

Google and IBM still trying desperately to move cloud market-share needle | TechCrunch
While becoming cross-platform compatible isn’t exactly a radical notion in general, it most certainly is for a company like IBM, which if it had its druthers and a bit more market share, would probably have been content to maintain the status quo. But if the majority of your customers are pursuing a multi-cloud strategy, it might be a good idea for you to jump on the bandwagon — and that’s precisely what IBM has done by opening up access to Watson across clouds in this fashion.

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."

3 Keys to Negotiating Successful Cloud Agreements

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."

Will IBM reinvent software licensing with containers?
"When considering microservices and processes running in a container, it is hard to see how companies will justify asking customers to pay a per month figure. Charging only when the container is live will appeal to many customers. They will be much more relaxed about taking on new microservices and this, in turn, has the ability to fuel a new era of software development. Developers able to see an immediate return on their development are more likely to build more microservices."

Understanding the Long-term Leap to the Cloud
"Cloud vendors are not offering the compelling discounting levels they offered on the initial investments when it comes to additional solutions. Some cloud vendors quickly “disremember” the discounting provided to early adopters and treat each order form independently from the others. This means that the additional solutions executed in the separate order forms could be well below market (e.g., off by 15-30%) when compared to the discounting received on your initial investment."

Event Report - Cloud Foundry CF Summit 2017 - Microsoft joins the kingdom - by @holgermu
"Microsoft joins the kingdom, SAP makes mark – Last year I referred to Cloud Foundry as the ‘King of PaaS’ – due to the lack of competition, most prominently in regards of the platform’s uptake by industry players that in another era would have built their own platform. And certainly not adopted an open source project. So, along the analogy, Cloud Foundry sees Microsoft joining the kingdom. While all partners are important, Microsoft is almost the last data point (Oracle is the last major player still standing out – formally) to join. Microsoft is a key win for CloudFoundry due to the vendor’s long history as development tool, platform product vendor and of course as owner of the Windows franchise. It also helps Microsoft as it gives its customers a (lower level) PaaS as go to location. Coupled with the expanded SAP presence and keynote by CTO Goerke it gives CloudFoundry more chops, most importantly adding two more cloud platforms with Azure and the SAP Cloud."

On the brighter side HDP is doing well in the market, the IBM partnership will help further. It’s a departure from Hortonworks ‘open source only’ mantra, but reflects market realities and opportunities."

"On the concern side, IBM needs to make sure not lose the eye on ‘bread and butter’ business, e.g. buried in the announcements was a new, HTAP enabled version of DB2. That by itself would have carried a conference by itself not too many years ago. And pretty much all the solutions talk general capability with a grey line between Watson capabilities, product capabilities and what smart consultants are making possible. Prospects and customers want and need to know what are product vs. services capabilities, as the mix creates a very different value proposition. Hiding behind ‘it’s all about the solution’ won’t work for long, as tangible AI platform capabilities are key to evolve solutions that are powered by them."

Site Visit - IBM Design Studio Austin - by @holgermu
"Always great to visit design centers, especially when they are successful and have moved the needle for their respective organization. It is fair to say that Design Thinking, the IBM design centers, starting with Austin and the designers have made a substantial difference to current IBM products. When mainframe engineers use Design Thinking for a zOS upgrade – you know IBM is onto something that works and transforms the way how the vendor builds its products."

"Earlier this week IBM and ARM announced a partnership in the fast growing next generation application use case of IoT. The announcement caught my attention as it is one of the first processor and stack partnerships happening in the market. And it is pretty obvious that bringing low level device information and architectures with higher level software constructs is going to be key for future winners in the IoT market."

Catalina Sea Ranch Dives Into Aquaculture – and IoT
nifty use case.... "The offshore shellfish ranch, the first to get federal authority to operate in United States’ waters, intends to increase commercial shellfish aquaculture, while simultaneously increasing the health of the ecosystem. To accomplish – and prove – this, the ranch uses a growing number of off-the-shelf and custom Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, CEO Phil Cruver told EnterpriseTech. The underwater ranch is fast becoming both an experiment in cultivating shellfish and IoT, as Sea Ranch invites in more partners from across the technology spectrum."

Progress Report - IBM Cloud makes good progress - but needs to attract more load - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, IBM is a cloud player with fewer ‘organic’ load than competitors. IBM reminds us of the 1000 SaaS properties that are in the IBM fold, but that’s not enough to reach the economics of scale that are needed to succeed long term in the cloud."

Perspectives on Hadoop Part Two: Pausing Plans - by @merv
"In this post, Nick and I turn from Procurement to Plans and examine the buying intentions uncovered in Gartner surveys. We recently described some of our findings in the Gartner research note Survey Analysis: Hadoop Adoption Drivers and Challenges, and since its publication we’ve been inundated by questions about why “Gartner is so negative about Hadoop.”

Perspectives on Hadoop: Procurement, Plans, and Positioning - by @merv
"Examining that data provides a useful perspective on where Hadoop is today. One of the vendors – Oracle – measures its DBMS revenue in 10s of billions of dollars, while 4 others – Microsoft, IBM, SAP and Teradata – do so an order of magnitude lower, in billions. Collectively, they represent 92.1% of actual spending in 2014 on DBMS."

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."

Hadoop Questions from Recent Webinar Span Spectrum - by @merv
"There were many questions asked after the last quarterly Hadoop webinar, and Nick and I have picked a few that were asked several times to respond to here. Just to be clear, we don’t generally give deep advice in blog posts – our blogs are descriptive, not prescriptive. Gartner clients submit inquiries, and justifiably think that since they are paying for the privilege, we should reserve that for them."

"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."
