New Research-n1

Last week, I FINALLY published the 2011 ROI Case Studies research, which I had planned to publish back in 2010.

IBM Pulse 2011 was a low key affair, announcement-wise, compared to past events. Attended by nearly 7,000 people– a record for this event– tracks and sessions were plentiful, while major announcements were somewhat sparse. Instead of glitz, however, it was clear that IBM Software has spent the past year building a foundation for new ways [...]

I’m not a big Jeopardy fan, more from lack of time than lack of interest. However, I couldn’t resist watching this week’s shows, in which Watson “shellacked” the human competition.

This blog entry explains why I believe this to be true. Virtually every company with on-premise IT (as opposed to outsourced IT) has [...]

Last week, I blogged on 5 tech-related predictions for 2011. Prediction #4 concerned Internet TV on the tablet. The idea was that tablet users will want to run Internet TV on their tablets, which means massive traffic on 3 and 4G networks. This brings opportunities for vendors such as Citrix, which market soft-appliance-based ADCs (Citrix [...]

Traditional APM products require significant care and feeding. Customers are required to tune thresholds, for example, to notify when desired performance thresholds are breached. In contrast, today’s leading edge APM solutions are starting to incorporate self-learning capabilities that enable them to “watch” the IT environment and “learn” normal performance levels for specific times of day, [...]

Here’s a prediction that may be slightly off the wall, and I might be a bit early here. However, here’s my thinking. This week’s buzz is all about the Consumer Electronics Show going on in Las Vegas.
