AWS could pay a price for Amazon’s broader ambitions - by @ron_miller
"When Amazon decided to buy Whole Foods, it seemed straight-forward enough. Huge company sees an opening and spends a ton of cash to gain an edge with a brick and mortar business, but the deal might have had some unintended consequences for AWS, Amazon’s highly successful cloud business."

Cisco-AppDynamics $3.7 billion deal all about the data - by @ron_miller
"Speaking at a press and analyst event today, AppDynamics CEO David Wadhwani acknowledged this was in fact the long-term vision for the platform. “We are moving from systems of records to systems of engagement — and that is the short and mid term. [Looking further out] we are moving to systems of intelligence when you rely on automation and machines to make decisions in real time,” and that’s where they ultimately see it going, he said."

Cisco Buys Jasper Technologies For $1.4 Billion - by @ron_miller
"Cisco announced today it was buying Jasper Technologies, a company that sells an Internet of Things cloud platform, for $1.4 billion. With Jasper, Cisco gets a company that understands the burgeoning Internet of Things market.

Pivotal IPO Could Make Dell-EMC Deal Even More Complicated - by @ron_miller
"Even while the Dell-EMC deal seemingly moves forward, there is still plenty of maneuvering going on at EMC. A couple of weeks ago VMware announced it was creating a new company called Virtustream that will be jointly owned with EMC, and just yesterday a re/code report suggested that Pivotal, another EMC-VMware joint venture, could IPO in early 2016."

A Tipping Point? - by @lcecere #SCM
"Yesterday morning, I woke to learn the news. H.J. Heinz Company and Kraft Foods Group were merging. The press release, sprayed with superlatives of goodness, promises great things; but as I read it, I smiled. This, I believe, is a sign of a new wave of merger mania."
