Gartner: IT’s Future Value Proposition

Gartner 0
I noted with some interest the McKinsey article titled, “IT’s Future Value Proposition” and I realized (and had guessed this from the title and first couple of paragraphs) that the article explains what I had come up with in simple graphic form a few months ago.  The odd thing is that even if we agree […]

Gartner: Data Lake, Big Data, NoSQL – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Gartner 0
On December 22, 2014, I published a blog about the terms Database vs. Database Management System (DBMS) (A Database By Any Other Name…) in an effort to correctly define these terms that are widely misused by practitioners and vendors alike. There seems to be a need in the IT industry (computers) to create new terms and concepts, regardless of […]

Gartner: Serverless is not networkless

Gartner 0
Serverless is pretty hot right now, so I asked one of our serverless analysts Arun Chandrasekaran a few questions on the topic… Q – What is serverless, is it a new technology or just a rebranding of something old/marketing?

Gartner 0
I read this week’s Economist in two parts: the first half in my way from Atlanta to Seattle and the second half on my way from Seattle to Vancouver.  I got excited the further away from home I flew.  Much of what I read made sense and seems self-evident, and has been written about and […]
