Tactical vs. Strategic Enterprise Mobility

Tsunamis of Change In the recent survey I conducted titled "State of Enterprise Mobility 2013" I asked the question, "Does your company view mobile solutions as tactical (LOB or process specific) or strategic (critical to the success of the company)?"  Over 220 participants answered the question with 71.3% answering strategic, and 28.2% answering tactical.  However, when I filtered for just the answers from end-users (removing analysts, consultants, software and mobility vendors), then 48% answered tactical, and 52% answered strategic.  There are still a lot of enterprises that view enterprise mobility as merely a tactical solution. What is the difference between strategic and tactical enterprise mobility?  I think it relates to the scale and transformational nature of your implementations.  For example, if your CPG (consumer packaged goods) company had 27 food proc...

Top Cloud Security Threats

To say that cloud security for cloud computing is gaining traction would be the understatement of our era.  Whether in public clouds, private clouds, or hybrid scenarios – it seems like everyone is in the cloud.  Healthcare providers, eCommerce, disaster recovery services, data storage . . . the types of cloud services available seem to cover every base.  What would Darwin think about his “Survival of the Fittest” evolving from animal species to businesses who take advantage of the flexibility, elasticity, and cost-effectiveness of cloud computing? But, there are dangers in the cloud computing jungle and cloud security measures must be put in place to eliminate and resolve them.  According to the Cloud Security Alliance, three types of threats have worsened between 2010 and today.

New to Cloud-Based Performance Testing? By @DanBoutinSOASTA | @CloudExpo #Cloud

New to Cloud-Based Performance Testing?  Here's a Quick Language Lesson by Dan Boutin OK, go ahead… admit it. You listen to Sirius/XM Radio channels 8 and 9 only. You haven’t noticed who the president is since Bill Clinton left office. If you haven’t had your mid-life crisis, you’re thinking about having it soon. And you may still call your test tool Mercury LoadRunner, refusing to acknowledge HP’s purchase of Mercury since it happened eight years ago. You want to get with the times, but you can’t. Why? Because you don’t speak the new language. And that language barrier is stopping you from entering the new world order in performance testing: cloud-based performance testing. So, I’m here to help you feel young again with a language lesson. Today, we’re going to translate your circa-1989 client/server tool terminology to today’s web and mobile cloud-based performanc...

A Tsunami of Global Disaster Communications Through Citizen Journalism

The news started hitting California early Saturday morning with an SMS alarm on my mobile phone – a major earthquake struck Chile, and there was a potential of tsunami activity in California and Hawaii (as well as the rest of the Pacific). First stop – CNN. The news source was right on the story, with real time information flowing into the newsroom from, not on-scene journalists, but through Twitter and Facebook updates. Another SMS message hits the phone letting me know there was a Twitter list at #hitsunami, and the discussion would include all the most current news related to tsunami preparations in Hawaii. Also gave a link to a web page that was broadcasting a live feed from KHON in Honolulu until the station integrated their feed on the KHON home page. Back to CNN, cell phone videos began pouring in from Santiago and Concepcion. CNN began broadcasting directly ... (more)

What Makes a Good Citizen Journalist?

Curiosity is the lifeblood of a citizen journalist Lots of folks ask us, “What makes a good citizen journalist?” The short answer is passion. But a good citizen journalist needs more than just passion. Six proficiencies that a good citizen journalist needs to develop are: Curiosity. Curiosity is the lifeblood of a good citizen journalist. It’s what keeps the mind alert and the stories coming. The mother of a childhood friend of mine once said, “All you boys do is go around turning over rocks to see what’s beneath them.” She was talking about our insatiable curiosity. A good citizen journalist always turns over rocks, opens closed doors, peeks behind the curtains and wonders, “What is all the commotion about?” Situational awareness. If you have this quality, it means that at all times you are aware of what is happening around you. Lots of people don’t pay any attent... (more)

Internet Business Transactions near 450 Billion a Day

By D. Bruce Johnston, President and CEO, DBJ Associates Commerce on the Internet continues to skyrocket. Chad Levitt, author of the “New Sales Economy Blog,” recently wrote a post, “Sales Reps, Are You Ready for the Digital Universe?,” based on information he gleaned from a recently released IDC report on predictions for the year 2020. Here are some of the major findings from the IDC report: Between now and 2020, the amount of digital information created and replicated in the world will grow to an almost inconceivable 35 trillion gigabytes as all major forms of media – voice, TV, radio, print – will complete the journey from analog to digital. Last year despite the global recession, the Digital Universe, set a record. It grew by 62% to nearly 800,000 petabytes. A petabytes is a million gigabytes. Picture a stack of DVDs reaching from the earth to the moon and back. ... (more)

IPv6 Crosses a New Line of Urgency

In an event passing nearly un-noticed, with the potential impact of a virtual asteroid slamming into the heart of Manhattan, the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA)  without fanfare, and without understanding by most of the global Internet, allocated the final blocks of IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4) addresses to regional Internet registries (RIRs) during the first week of February. While the “Internet” is not in danger of an imminent meltdown, the message is clear, “get ready to adopt IPv6, the accepted successor to IPv4, or accept the reality your business is on a countdown timer.” Exhaustion of IPv4 Let’s consider a couple analogies to help visualize what IPv4 exhaustion means. Fossil Fuels.  We know there is a limit to the amount of oil and coal available to our planet.  Once the oil and coal are gone, those sources of energy are also gone.  We are n... (more)
