Don’t be a Big Data ostrich

HP Enterprise
About 10 years ago, I was working with two military sister organizations on some Knowledge Management projects.

It wasn’t until we dug […]

I’ve written in the past about the opportunity for Hadoop-as-a-Service (HaaS) – providing self-service provisioning, elastic scaling, and support for multi-tenancy. But in my discussions with customers over the past year, it’s become clear that the opportunity is even bigger than Hadoop. The next big thing in big data is Big-Data-as-a-Service (BDaaS). There are three […]

Cisco and Nutanix – Partner bliss or partner fiasco?

HP Enterprise
Recently Nutanix announced it was NOT partnering with Cisco to launch a hyperconverged offering.  In a recent blog titled “Nutanix and Cisco UCS: On Responsibility and Change”, Nutanix attempts to spin that they have innovated a new era of partnering by not partnering…all inspiration of Gandhi.   Since, HPE is not directly involved in this brawl, […]

All three greatly increase overhead, and, combined with crisis maintenance, can result in significant losses for companies that need to be operating smoothly. […]
