How is VirtualWorks a platform play and what is the role of partners?
VirtualWorks’ CEO Ed Iacobucci explains why VirtualWorks is a platform play and … More
Anyone involved in the whole area of data – information management, big data, knowledge management – will regularly hear that it’s like spinning plates or keeping balls in the air or herding cats. But, in the real world of managing complex data, for many professionals it simply isn’t like this.
Microsoft SharePoint has been increasing in popularity over recent years. It has moved from being primarily viewed as a simple file-sharing collaboration tool to becoming the core foundation for a wide range of mission-critical applications. Now, businesses are using SharePoint for a wide range of roles including business intelligence, knowledge management, secure extranets, process support – the list is growing all the time. It’s prompted leading IT analysts like Gartner to coin the term “Big SharePoint.” More
It used to be so simple. Companies made stuff. Their employees sold that stuff. Other staff made sure the stuff kept working.
These days, more companies than ever sell their ideas. They advise on strategy, deliver critical insights into the market, and work with data of all kinds. In short, they’re staffed by information workers. More
Everyone agrees (or almost everyone) that the IT department is facing a tsunami of dramatic change over the next few years. Data is exploding exponentially. Whereas it used to live in structured warehouses and databases, it’s now buried in emails, intranets, collaboration tools and scanned files. More
If you’re anything like most companies, you have plenty of data. Did we say plenty? Ok, you probably have more data than you know what to do with. Data that is literally filling your servers and swamping your staff.
Today, for many employees, the sheer volume of data turns it into pure noise. They’re simply unable to process everything coming their way (let alone find the information they really need to make better decisions). It’s got to the point where it’s even been given a clinical name: Information Fatigue Syndrome (IFS). More
The volume of data is exploding. Estimates vary wildly, but you’re likely to see the quantity of business data you have to deal with double every two years. Whether inside the firewall or out in the cloud, there is no end in sight to this expansion. As we’ve shown previously, the amount of data inside people’s heads (wet data) will be eclipsed by that stored inside machines (dry data) in about 2075. More
For a device that was supposed to be just for consumers, the iPad has certainly made an impact in businesses. Apple’s quarterly numbers regularly blow financial analysts’ socks off, and what’s clear is that a surprising part of that success has come from people using iPads at work.
While Apple doesn’t break out the numbers, industry analyst Forrester believes that enterprises spent $6 billion on buying iPads last year. And they expect that to grow by nearly 70% in 2012. Not bad, particularly when Forrester also predicts the (admittedly much more massive) market for Wintel-based PCs and tablets is set to decline by three percent this year. More
I thought about this question the other day, and a lame marketing joke came to mind about the difference between commitment and interest. The story compares the relative contributions of a pig and a chicken to a bacon and eggs breakfast: while the chicken might be interested, the pig in question is unavoidably committed. More
