Some tech companies are always associated with their first acts. Dell just acquired my first employer, EMC Corporation, in order to expand its enterprise portfolio, yet the company will always be linked with personal computers and its founder’s dorm room. F5 has become a nexus that brings together networks and applications but will always retain the moniker of a load balancing company. Bit9 has established itself as a major next-generation endpoint player, yet some people can only think of its original focus on white listing.
The fact that major IT vendors are consolidating isn’t a surprise, given the feedback we hear from IT professionals about wanting to work with fewer vendors that can be more strategic to their business.
The Dell/EMC acquisition also lends itself to further validation that traditional IT consumption models are being disrupted, and it is difficult to transform business models and/or continue to operate in a single proverbial IT silo. Some of this dynamic is due to a valid means of consuming IT services from public cloud providers, and the rest can be credited to IT being too complex for too long. While Dell and EMC will not position it as such, the acquisition is poised to capitalize on the fact that IT is slow and difficult to change. This fact is good for Dell/EMC as they will continue to service this massive base even as business consume more services from the cloud.
Pentaho World 2015 was held in sunny Orlando this year, with over 500 attendees, and was by all accounts a friendly and informative affair. About the only question no one could answer is why the company is called Pentaho, but a rose by any other name is still very nice. One thing that was quite clear is that the team is hitting its stride with HDS as a powerful running mate.
I use Amazon Workspaces on my iPad Mini and have been impressed with its usability. While I admit that it is not my primary workspace, it works great for when I am using my iPad and need to get something done in a Windows environment. If I could use a mouse with the workspace like you can with Citrix Receiver, then I would significantly increase my usage of the environment.
The contrast of the DJ music pumping out bass lines and drum beats over hits from the 70s was quite apropos for the mix of hipster and middle age attendees at last week’s AWS re:Invent where the word of the week was hybrid. This year’s AWS re:Invent show had a decidedly different feel to it, one of enterprise IT. AWS holds an enviable position as the leading provider of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing services where they are Coke and we’re still waiting for Pepsi to show up. With that ground staked out, AWS is now clearly intent on being a major IT brand and that means embracing hybrid clouds and putting security front and center.
Organizations lack sufficient collect and compute resources to arrive at accurate conclusions about whether or not events observed are good or bad. That is to say, simply passing metadata to a SIEM will not, by itself, identify a breach. To make it worse, things one organization or business unit deems “bad”, may not be “bad” […]

Dell recently announced its intent to acquire EMC at approximately $33.15 a share, for a total transaction price of $67 billion. Upon first hearing of this deal, the ancient proverb, “fortune favors the bold,” immediately came to mind.
This is a massive deal, and while some will say it is too risky, I would argue that the industry conditions have shifted to where it might be more risky for Dell and EMC not to make this move. The IT industry is in the midst of a massive upheaval. The merger makes both companies stronger than how they might have been apart.

So by now you have probably heard that Dell is planning on acquiring EMC, while leaving VMware as a publicly traded entity. Hot stuff indeed. This has big implications for the IT market as a whole, but Im most interested in how it sets up change for the big data, database, and analytics space. A few immediate opportunities and a risk are in store:
