For an HCI solution to not have a clear path forward for public cloud support is almost anathema in the increasingly hybrid cloud environments found in today’s enterprises. That’s what makes this week’s CloudShift announcement from Datrium notable – it begins to clarify Datrium’s strategy for how Datrium is going to go beyond backup to the public cloud as part of its DVX solution and puts the concept of flawless DR on corporate radar screens.
Change. Digital transformation. Disrupt. Eat your own young. These were just some of the terms and phrases uttered at this past week’s HPE Discover event in Las Vegas by HPE executives at all levels of the organization. Yet in the face of the changes that are about to sweep through the technology industry, a technology provider that touches as many organizations around the world as HPE does needs to have more than this type of mindset. It needs to have the products and strategy in place to back it up. Based upon what I saw at HPE Discover last week, HPE is executing upon these requirements.
2014 may eventually come to be characterized as the year of the tech break up. Tech conglomerates such as CA Technologies, HP, IBM and, most recently, Symantec have all opted to go down the “break up” route while others such as Cisco and EMC continue to experience internal and external pressures to pursue this option. But as enterprises look to create more agile, automated, cohesive infrastructures, it may be ultimately leave those such as Dell and Oracle that are opting to “make up” best positioned to deliver on these enterprise demands.
Many businesses either rely on in-house custom software or purchase and customize commercial software packages to meet their mission critical business needs. Unfortunately these approaches are failing to meet the needs of enterprises as they demand faster development and deployment times for these apps. To address that challenge, a new group of vendors in the cloud promises to improve these mediocre mission critical business processes by speeding up development/deployment cycles while reducing the total cost of ownership of enterprise applications.
In part 2, we continue our discussion with GroupLogic’s Anders Lofgren, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, by exploring licensing options and how the enterprise mobility space has opened up a new market for the company. As well, we dig deeper into activEcho and learn how it is designed to provide flexible and secure file-sync-and-sharing in the enterprise IT organization while being as simple and easy to use as one of the most popular–but unsecure–consumer grade file-sync-and-share cloud services today.
Earlier this year, DCIG interviewed the executive team at GroupLogic. GroupLogic shared with us how they approach the market for “enterprise file sharing” or what DCIG has been calling File-Sync-and-Share. In addition, we had the privilege of talking to Chris Broderick, CEO of GroupLogic who covered some of the company’s history.
In this interview series with Austin Convention Center Database Administrator Jeff Moore, we are uncovering decision criteria for Apple iPad adoption and Mobile-first application development. Part 5 of this interview covers Mr. Moore’s views on with cloud applications impact on desktop users, tool belts with tablets and how the iPad helped the Austin Convention Center with their Gold LEED certification.
In this interview series with Austin Convention Center Database Administrator Jeff Moore, we are uncovering decision criteria for Apple iPad adoption and Mobile-first application development. Part 4 of this interview covers Mr. Moore’s views on using other application storage besides FileMaker and iterating product development for cloud applications.

Part 3 of this interview covers Mr. Moore’s views on using Apple iPad with Virtual Private Networks (VPN), further information on security and multi-tenant cloud storage, exhibitor services workflow and why FTP is not the right solution for application file, synch and share.
In this interview series with Austin Convention Center Database Administrator Jeff Moore, we are uncovering decision criteria for Apple iPad adoption and Mobile-first application development. Part 2 of this interview covers Mr. Moore’s views on the consideration of operations, exhibitor and attendee mobile applications, security concerns driving FileMaker infrastructure and how cloud application storage can act as a receiver of data sourced from FileMaker databases.
Enterprise organizations face the daily challenge of ever-growing needs with their traditional applications. Not only are these needs growing, but they are constantly changing as well, forcing companies to adapt by changing not only their tools but also their systems. Today, I’m talking with Austin Convention Center Database Administrator Jeff Moore about his role in the centers consideration of and adoption of Apple iPads and Mobile-first applications.
Earlier this month DCIG shared some key opportunities poised to make a splash in 2012. Near the top of the list is the Mobile First approach to product development, which is now threatening to disrupt the adoption of traditional Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI). Leading the charge is a combination that VMWare and Citrix both plan to deliver this year: VDI-like application delivery by way of a Mobile First approach, focused on the already widespread adoption of tablet devices in the enterprise.
Companies who execute Information Governance plans are looking for eDiscovery products supporting Early Case Assessment (ECA). ECA is a combination of search, workflow management, information processing, and multilingual user interfaces. ECA requires a cohesive set of technology, business and data science stakeholders to select products.
ECA is powerful business process, but identifying ECA products is a beleaguering task. ECA mashes together eDiscovery and technology requirements. The “mashing of requirements” creates a broad matrix of products and functionality. Without question, eDiscovery has significantly evolved within the last few years.
