  • Published in

Francis Ouimet had Eddy Lowery, Tiger Woods had Steve Williams, Jordan Spieth has Michael Greller, and now AWS users have…Rackspace?  Behind every golf phenom is a silent partner. That even keel caddy that brings the right blend of wit, wisdom and instinctual insight and advice to help propel his or her wunderkind to the top of the leader board. Like these unsung heroes of the fairway, Rackspace too is now bringing caddy-like concierge services to bear to help businesses leverage AWS for grand slam success in the cloud.

On the Lookout for These Three at AWS re:Invent 2015

Wait! AWS re:Invent is next week? Thankfully Amazon did not opt for the December date being bandied about and chose a date early in the quarter to avoid travelling around the holidays. And how this event has grown. When I first attended in 2013, attendance had doubled from 2012 to 6,000 and then did more than a 2X jump last year with 13,000 cloudies in attendance. But what do attendance numbers have to do with security? It’s a proxy of cloud adoption and the types of customers getting their agile on and, as such, is an indicator that enterprises transitioning at least some of their workloads to AWS require hybrid security solutions.

Ericsson – growth in a changing ICT world

I attended Ericsson’s North American industry analyst day and was pleased to see their progress in transitioning themselves into the new world of mobile networks where apps ultimately drive the change. Theyre also getting ready for 5G networks. As most readers are aware, mobile networks are making a steady march toward ever faster speeds even in the current 4G generation. There are 800 million subscribers on LTE in 2015, experiencing 80% subscriptions growth. And video is generating half of all mobile traffic. The question is how this change affects businesses that utilize this platform as well as vendors like Ericsson, which already manages 1 billion subscribers, supports 2.5 billion subscribers, and has 118,000 employees. Change at this scale is actually a daunting thing to manage. Ericsson has traditionally been perceived as a telecom equipment vendor, but they have made a significant transition to become a ICT (information and communication technology) provider where approximately two-thirds of their revenue comes from services and software. They compete more with ICT vendors than traditional telecom vendors. It’s actually ranked 5th on the list of the top global software companies.
