Thinking through IoT from MIT Sloan Management
Fri, Jan 29th 2016 4:16p   Jack Dausman
IoT is just at the early adopter stage, which is the peak of the hype cycle. What's that meme about not being able to spell idiot without IoT ? Michael Fitzgerald has a terrific piece on "Hype vs. Reality: A Reality Check on the Internet of Things" in the MIT Sloan Management Review. He covers nine topics of relevant interest. The one that sticks out for me speaks to the security of IoT as under fire before it even exists. In a reference to Cisco's Chris Young's interview with The Register,

Every Year It's the Same -- the Future is Not What it Used to Be
Mon, Jan 11th 2016 10:00p   Jack Dausman
Every Saturday I have a video chat with my Dad, who is 87 and 3,000 miles away. On one hand, it's amazing to be able to communicate so simply and directly. His phone is voice controlled, "OK Google," and his transportation has been happily Uberized. However, my present is his future, which was imagined in the thirties and forties. No matter how much incredible tech is created or changes are made in geo-politics--it's still a downer from the dreams of yesteryear. The take-away lesson ? We st

"Visual assets have taken on a broader role and are responsible for continually and consistently representing your brand, communicating your value proposition, and cultivating brand image on a daily basis, " so says Jerry Kane is an associate professor of information systems at the Carroll School of Management at Boston College and the MIT Sloan Management Review guest editor for the Digital Business Initiative. If you have responsibility for SEO, or any aspect of web analytics, then the Rise

EMC + Dell is not quite the same as E=MC (squared)
Tue, Oct 13th 2015 10:00p   Jack Dausman
Lots of questions on the value for Dell to purchase EMC, which has been covered ad-nauseum in the trade journals. Harvard Business Review published an analysis by Benjamin Gomes-Casseres which is beautiful in simplicity: Still, the Dell strategy is opaque. In fact, Dell has argued that being private facilitates its transition, as too much public scrutiny might derail its plans. In that regard, selling to a private company is like going into a black hole. Analysts are guessing at what the strate

AWS Rocks with Database Migration Tools
Fri, Oct 9th 2015 4:30a   Jack Dausman
Traditional, enterprise vendors discount AWS as providing IaaS and PaaS with lots of integration and monitoring magic. Sort of like positioning the move to the cloud as out-sourcing the local datacenter hardware. But, adopting AWS is doing more than a forklift move, it's also an opportunity to convert older systems from proprietary to open-source. Quentin Hardy of the NYTimes notes some of these announcements at Amazon's latest conference: Among the most notable, there was a 47-pound data sto

VMWare VDI Gets Some Love from Brian Madden
Fri, Apr 24th 2015 12:00a   Jack Dausman
I've long followed Brian Madden for all things VDI. It's a technology that I'm really hoping will mature beyond data center hosting of the client. Security, of course, is absolutely critical, and it appears that VMWare has upped the game. In a recent posting, Gabe Knuth summarizes the new network security capabilities as leveraging VMWare's NSX virtual networks.The quick explanation here is that with this combination of technologies, you can have applications run on specific networks dedica

Social Media Guidelines for US Federal Workers
Sat, Apr 18th 2015 12:00a   Jack Dausman
The US Office of Government Ethics has published their guidelines for using social media. The direction is not for a government account, but "as a general matter, this requirement limits the extent to which employees may access and use their personal social media accounts while on duty." One large section is whether or not a job title can be included in a posting. Another is on how recommendations should be considered. In any case, now that there are guidelines, it's to be noted that this is

AWS vis a vis Azure Marketshare
Thu, Apr 16th 2015 11:00p   Jack Dausman
Really interesting analysis on Azure and AWS footprint sizes in Forbes. Spoiler alert, AWS is still leaving Bigfoot puddles as it walks through the competition. The call out items, to me, are (1) it's a zero profit platform for anyone building for the cloud; (2) Microsoft is still tethered to it's own, proprietary, infrastructure; (3) despite AWS's prowess, Azure is gaining a lot of clients. My read is that a lot of the direction for cloud technology will be centered on the desktop and mobil
