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.
Introduction to the Torchbearer CIO
CIOs realize the barriers between formerly distinct industries are
collapsing, as organizations in one sector apply their expertise to others ... (more)
Helping businesses mobilise data from SharePoint, Dynamics AX, NAV and CRM or
London, 4 July 2012 - United Planet (www.unitedplanet.com), one of the
leading developers of enterprise portal software in Europe, will be releasing

I've recently been involved in several discussions that are variations on,
"Which open source or free software license should I choose for my project?"
Here is my way of looking at the large and growing collection of licenses in
the wild. First let's make sure we all understand that I Am Not A Lawyer.
This is not legal advice. Depending upon your needs and your comfort with
risk around your software, you'll want to confirm your legal choices with
counsel in your jurisdiction.
The first and obvious consideration is whether or not the license is approved
as an open source license by the Open Source Initiative (OSI). The OSI
created the Open Source Definition in the late 1990s as a set of attributes
that a software license must support to be considered "open source". Anyone
can take a license to the OSI for debate and discussion and if approved as
meeting the OSD, the... (more)

US Attorney General Eric Holder has named Renata Hesse acting head of Justice
Department's Antitrust Division to replace departing chief Joseph Wayland.
Hesse was the lead lawyer in the remedies phase of DOJ's antitrust suit
against Microsoft and she also involved in trying to stop Oracle from
acquiring PeopleSoft, the start of its great takeover binge. She was a
partner at the famed Silicon Valley law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
PC after leaving the government in 2006. Last year she joined the Federal
Communications Commission and reviewed AT&T's proposed $39 billion
acquisition of T-Mobile, which ultimately fell to objections. She returned to
the DOJ in March as special adviser for civil enforcement and deputy
assistant attorney general. The Obama White House picked William Baer to head
the division, but the Senate has yet to vote on the nomination. Sena... (more)

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.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

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.
