Systems of Innovation for Ongoing Digital Transformation
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in
business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo.
It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new
opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before.
So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition?
Back in 2015, the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted a market study
that included the findings from over 1,800 CIO interviews from around the
globe. The resulting insights are worthy of revisiting today, as we consider
the digital business transformation outlook in 2017.

CIOs realize the barriers between formerly distinct industries are
collapsing, as organizations in one sector apply their expertise to others ... (more)

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application
pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered.
From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?
Eric Miraglia of Yahoo!

iPhone SDK vs using AJAX?
2. How do I assess the performance of my app and decide what to do next to

Virtualization Expo on Ulitzer
Virtualization cuts across just about all that you might find in the today's
data center: to one degree or another, clients, servers, applications,
storage systems, data networks, and security can all now be virtualized. .
By compressing multiple workloads onto a single physical server,
Virtualization enables data centers to save tremendous amounts of money on
hardware, power, cooling and floor space.
For small and midsized enterprises, Virtualization can also help data centers
tap into levels of fault tolerance previously enjoyed only by huge
And chief executives are discovering that Virtualization has the potential
not only to improve the balance sheet, but also to strengthen competitive
advantage and put a shine on the corporate brand.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.
